BODY3 COMPLEXTM: 3-IN-1 BODY SKIN ENHANCER

Body3 ComplexTM is a unique cosmetic active complex whose triple- action formula aims at fighting the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks and increasing firmness.

3 INGREDIENTS

Unroasted shea butter extract

Unroasted shea butter extract is obtained through a sustainable process and is made by women in Burkina Faso villages. When manufactured without the traditional roasting phase, shea butter preserves its viminalol ester content and its slimming active properties.

Avocado seed extract

Avocado seeds are by-products of the Burkina Faso food industry. Avocado seed extract is rich in unsaponifiable matter known to activate connective tissue metabolism.

Bentonite

The avocado seed and unroasted shea butter extracts are entrapped in this multi-lamellar active clay, creating a powder-form ingredient that is easier to formulate. Bentonite provides biological benefits such as the regeneration of extra-cellular matrix proteins (ECM). The bentonite also provides a progressive-release delivery system.

3 ACTIONS

Reduction of the appearance of cellulite

Cellulite is seen in 85% of women regardless of age, ethnic origin, body shape or weight. It is characterized by fat accumulation in adipocytes particularly on the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach. Body3 ComplexTM differentiates itself from other slimming agents by its unique ability to stimulate lipolysis by acting on the ZAG pathway.

Enhancement of firmness

Without ECM fibers, adipocytes escape from the hypodermis and move toward the surface of the skin to form cellulite. Body3 ComplexTM is able to stimulate SKALP (SKin-derived AntiLeukoProteinase), an elastase inhibitor, to inhibit elastase activity, thereby limiting dermis degradation leading to a reduction of fat infiltration.

Reduction of the appearance of stretch marks

Studies have demonstrated that the silanols contained in bentonite are known to regenerate ECM proteins. The bentonite contained in Body3 ComplexTM reduces the color, length and overall appearance of stretch marks.

WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?

Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body; it’s found in virtually every tissue of your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist (aka, the ultimate plumper). Hyaluronic acid is an ideal moisturizer because it can attract and retain 1000 times its own weight in water (a feat unmatched by any other substance in nature). “The volumizing effect it has on your skin adds vital fullness that can minimize facial wrinkles and create a smooth appearance.” Dermatologist, Dr. Gary Goldfaden

WHY DO I NEED IT?

Hyaluronic acid is found in great abundance in youthful skin, the cumulative damage caused by free radicals drastically depletes these hyaluronic acid reserves (on average, a person. As a key ingredient in your skin’s extracellular matrix, it plays a significant role in maintaining moisture, plumpness, and softness.

WHO SHOULD USE IT AND WHEN TO INCORPORATE IT INTO MY REGIMEN?

We all strive for that youthful appearance and that’s exactly why Hyaluronic Acid has become such a popular ingredient in skin care for all ages as it’s never too early to start using products that contain HA — in fact, just a single gram can hold supposedly hold up to six liters of water, and research suggests it can help protect against environmental aggressors like pollution, too. Best of all, it works for every skin type — especially in serum form, where it can be more easily absorbed and work its skin-plumping magic at a deeper level.

Hyaluronic acid works exceptionally well alongside other protective ingredients like antioxidants – in particular vitamin C so look for serums containing both (like Dr. Goldfaden’s Brightening Elixir) or layer them up, waiting a few minutes in between each application to allow the product to settle.

Dermatologists, estheticians and plastic surgeons all have a surprising array of tools and techniques to beat back the signs of time. For some of us, that sounds really scary! We enlisted Dr. Goldfaden to tell us about five ways in which we can look younger longer, without any invasive in-office procedures and altering much in our daily lives.

What are your top tips for keeping skin young? Exfoliation is key – You would be surprised how much smoother and brighter just one exfoliating treatment can do for your skin. Regular exfoliation also allows topical products, particularly super potent treatment serums, applied onto the skin afterwards to penetrate deeper, increasing the overall treatment. Never leave home without applying a sun screen – it is essential to keeping ourselves protected from free radical damage and skin cancer. ”  Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden MD

When should we begin focusing on an anti-aging skincare routine? “Protecting your skin from UVA and UVB damage through the daily use of a sunscreen and starting a proper and preventative skincare regimen – exfoliation, cleanse, anti-oxidant rich serum, moisturize and eye cream – in your mid-20’s is a vital step towards keeping fine lines, pigmentation and sagging at bay. The skin is at it’s healthiest state during your 20’s and it is also when most of your habits begin and stick when it comes to proper caring of the skin. It makes all the difference in the world for obtaining proper skin health and appearance. By the time 30 rolls around, you will be thankful that you started proper skin early.” Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden MD

What are some effective ingredients to look for? “Some of the ingredients that I often lean on to incorporate into our formulas, due to their potent benefits on the skin, include skin plumping hyaluronic acid, anti-inflammatory vitamin K and Arnica, skin brightening alpha arbutin and gooseberry berry extract, skin exfoliating ruby crystals, collagen boosting retinoids, antioxidant rich tea extracts. Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden MD

What about supplements and our diet in general? How can those help? “Clear and glowing skin starts from the inside. Eating foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, the most beneficial is Salmon, can greatly reduce inflammation, reduce dryness and increase circulation – a key attribute to healthy, youthful-looking skin. Daily consumption of vitamins specifically my favorite vitamin – Vitamin D and an overall multi-vitamin greatly impacts your overall health.” Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden MD

Can you share some of your favorite anti-aging products? Loaded with vital nutrients, vitamins and a higher concentration of topical skin treatment ingredients, serums – either oil or water based – penetrate deep into the dermis levels of the skin for the ultimate topical nourishing skin treatments. Serums offer a potent jolt to the skin that typically target specific problems to offer the highest levels of treatment in a topical product.” Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden MD
