Eye Contour Cream
Firms and rejuvenates
This is an all-round eye cream that addresses the main concerns around the eye area – crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffiness.
> dark under eye circles
> lines and wrinkles
- Reduces puffiness.
- Diminishes dark circles.
- Lifts, strengthens and contours.
Formulated to improve the appearance of dark circles, of which there are two primary causes:
- Pigmentation in the under-eye area
- Capillary leakage of blood (similar to a “black eye”)
Treats hyperpigmentation under the eye with Belides (Daisy Flower) extract. This extract inhibits the transfer of melanosomes from melanocytes to keratinocytes and it also reduces tyrosinase expression and activity. It has also been shown to be effective against age spots.
The Eye Contour Cream protects and strengthens the capillary network under the eye by reducing glycotoxins and glycation products. It also stimulates detoxifying mechanisms that drain the under-eye area to reduce puffiness.
Albizia extract and Darutoside protect and strengthen the dermis by boosting Collagen and Elastin synthesis by more than 220% having a visible effect on Crow’s Feet.
Improvement in the skin microbiome combined with Albizia extract improves puffiness and inflammation around the eye area.
Belides Extract – most under-eye pigmentation issues are caused by post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation – particularly in darker skin. Belides acts on this by reducing the transfer rate of melanosomes from melanocytes to normal skin cells. Each melanocyte is in contact with approximately 36 skin cells and delivers melanosomes to all of them. This is largely prevented and a very strong lightening effect is achieved on dark circles that are caused by pigmentation.
Albizia Extract – this extract lifts the upper eyelid, reduces crow’s feet and diminishes puffiness. It has been shown to improve collagen synthesis by 256% and elastin synthesis by 229%. This helps to prevent the rupture of capillaries in the fragile networks below the eye. It also improves the appearance of wrinkles around the eye by between 14 and 33% in two weeks.
Prebiotics – Inulin and Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharides have been included to shift the microbial population in a direction that will reduce further inflammation and boost barrier function.
Probiotics – The Eye Contour Cream uses a probiotic Lactobacillus species but the cells have been lysed (broken) and then the mixture is filtered to remove other cell components. This “extract” has the ability to improve the synergistic microbial populations on skin by having an anti-microbial effect on opportunistic microbes. The overall effect is to boost skin condition by improving moisturisation and T-junction number and strength.
Devil’s Claw Extract – This is an ingredient to help with the protection of elastin and collagen.
Kigelia Extract –Kigelia extract has a strong firming effect on the skin. Results are seen after two weeks of continuous use.
Low Molecular Mass Hyaluronic Acid – the HA levels in this product are high. Strong hydrating and anti-wrinkle effect can be expected from HA in this product. We have included this ingredient at the highest level that we deem safe for use in the eye area.
Twice daily divide one small pump of eye cream between ring fingers. Smooth gently around the eyes, remembering to include to the crow’s feet and upper eyelid. Follow with preferred moisturiser.
Apply to any areas of hyperpigmentation/sunspots for visible lightening. Suitable for all ages.
