Serums are highly concentrated anti-aging ingredients. Unlike moisturizers, they do not contain occlusive, or airtight, ingredients such as petrolatum or mineral oil that create a barrier on your skin. Because serums do not contain filler ingredients, they penetrate the skin faster and more effectively, requiring minimal amounts of product per application.
Klotho Skin developed a liposome delivery system for its products to allow growth factor proteins that normally could not penetrate the epidermis to reach their target areas. The proprietary technology encodes the product and mimics a transporting fat molecule to allow GF entry and breakdown.
Dependent upon your age and skin type, fine lines typically appear around the eyes as signs of dehydration. Over time, the lines become permanent as signs of habitual movements, and moisture and collagen loss through oxidative stress.
The Klotho Skin formula increases the body's natural sodium dioxide levels, resulting in cellular protection against oxidative stress.
TEWL is the process in which water passes from the dermis (middle layer) to the epidermis (outer layer) and evaporates from the skin’s surface.
While TEWL is a process that your skin naturally regulates, certain circumstances such as injury, low-humidity weather conditions and topically applied products can damage the skin’s barrier function can dry out the skin and affect TEWL levels.
Klotho Skin recommends starting an eye serum at age 20, to encourage hydration and delay or prevent fine lines under the eyes.
It is never too late to take care of your skin. The active ingredients in Klotho Skin products work on all skins, at all ages.
Fibroblasts are the main connective tissues found in the body. A fibroblast cell is responsible for building the extracellular matrix (a framework that supports additional structures) and collagen (the element that fills the framework). Together, the matrix and collagen form the structural framework of tissues and play an important role in tissue repair. As the fibroblast ages , collagen production drops almost in half.
Klotho uses fibroblast cells to build collagen-based structures that are then paired with a promoter gene to get the highest levels of Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF). The factors are then isolated and harvested to set the framework for Klotho activation and its resultant benefits. Studies have shown that fibroblasts treated with Klotho Skin cosmeceuticals can actually start producing collagen like a younger fibroblast cell.
Peptides are short chains of two or more amino acids that play a number of roles in skin repair and function, including facilitating cellular communication and collagen production. Biomimetic peptides are lab-created amino acid chains that mimic the effects of naturally-occurring peptides.
Through the use of specifically designed and targeted biopeptides, Klotho Skin is able to target receptor cells and encourage the activation of the Klotho gene within them.
Klotho Skin uses plant essential oils within its ingredient list. Hints of fruit oil extracts can be recognized.
No animals were used for testing in the making of Klotho Skin products.
