- Cellex-C G.L.A. Extra Moist Cream derived from evening primrose flowers. G.L.A.(gamma linoleic acid) is known to increase the permeability and flexibility of cell membranes and helps regulate water loss. By ensuring that the skin's surface moisture level remains optimal, Cellex-C G.L.A. and Cellex-C G.L.A. Extra Moist Cream, also help to prevent dehydration and other visible signs of premature aging of the skin. Experiments have shown that dry, scaly, aging skin results when linoleic acid (which is synthesized in the body to G.L.A.) is absent from the diet.
- Contains evening primrose oil. Rich in gamma linoleic acid which is essential for the maintenance of normal functioning of the epithelial barrier membrane. Contains lecithin. A hydrophilic ingredient that attracts water and acts as a moisturizer. Lecithin is a natural emollient, emulsifier and anti-oxidant obtained for cosmetic purposes from eggs and soybeans.
- Contains wheat germ oil, an excellent emollient with anti-oxidant and free radical scavenging properties due to its naturally high vitamin E content.
- Contains vitamin E in the form of tocopheryl acetate. Vitamin E is believed to improve the skin's water-binding ability. In addition, vitamin E emulsions have been found to reduce transepidermal water loss, thereby improving the appearance of rough, dry and damaged skin.
- Contains chamomile extract. Chamomile flowers contain the active ingredient, azulene. This anti-inflammatory agent soothes and comforts the skin and is used by aestheticians and dermatologists throughout the world to treat agitated, inflamed, dry or irritated skin. Contains Lady's Thistle. Extracts from the seeds provide powerful anti-oxidants to help fight the free radicals that attack skin cells.
- A deficiency of natural Cellex-CG.L.A. can allow too much water to be lost through the skin. When this happens, the face can rapidly lose its firm, youthful contours. Regular use of either of the Cellex-C G.L.A. creams will make the skin appear plumper and smoother with dehydration lines less visible.
- The super-moisturizing, skin conditioning oils of evening primrose and wheat germ create the appearance of soft, supple, velvety textured skin.
- G.L.A. Extra Moist provides excellent moisturizing benefits for skin prone to eczema or psoriasis.
- A younger, firmer looking face, neck and chest is achieved with the combination of Cellex-C G.L.A. or Cellex-C G.L.A. Extra Moist Cream along with a daily application of Cellex-C Serum or Skin Firming Cream Plus.
