IT STARTED WITH A PLASTIC SURGEON
When Dr Alexandrides started his practice, it was difficult for him to find skincare that would help heal the skin more efficiently after cosmetic procedures. Patients complained that certain skincare products were too harsh for their sensitive skin after treatment.
Dedicated to continuous research he discovered that skin ages faster in space because of environmental extremes. For that reason he sought collaboration of space scientists responsible for the wellbeing of astronauts. Together they created the patented NAC Y² formula.
Glutathione is the most vital antioxidant naturally produced in the body and present in every cell. Scientifically, it is a tripeptide consisting of three key amino acids: Cysteine, Glycine, and Glutamic Acid.
Glutathione is present in every cell of the body putting it in prime position to neutralise free radicals and to maintain intracellular health. It preserves and protects skin cells, combats chronological ageing and stimulates the skin’s abilities to repair itself.
Ageing is partially genetic and partly due to exposure to free radicals. Our body’s natural defence systems are lowered as Glutathione levels decrease with age. By stimulating the production of Glutathione, the cells ability to fight free radical damage is strengthened, and the ageing process is delayed.
Direct intake of Glutathione has no effect on the increase of its cellular levels. Only NAC is scientifically proven to raise intracellular Glutathione levels. The entire 111SKIN collection includes our patented NAC Y2 formula. This formula combines NAC, Ascorbyl, Phosphate (the most potent form of Vitamin C) and Escin.
NAC and Ascorbyl Phosphate work in synergy to stimulate Glutathione. NAC helps to maintain a youthful appearance by encouraging collagen production, improving elasticity and allowing the skin to repair itself.
Escin, another potent antioxidant, increases blood circulation, promotes stronger collagen production and helps transport NAC Y2 and Ascorbyl Phosphate directly to the targeted layers of the skin.
Together, these powerful ingredients, detoxify, hydrate and regenerate, working from within to strengthen the skin and fight the damaging environmental elements that cause ageing.
