Sophisticated products demand the highest quality, advanced ingredients at the clinical levels [and above] to effectively address the appearance, texture and overall condition of skin. Utilizing ingredients such as peptides, certified botanicals, non-animal protein derivatives, collagen optimizers and other key ingredient along with unique delivery systems such as liposomes, encapsulations and nanotechnology, our Research Team specializes in exclusive formulations that are results-driven. Here are just a few of our most popular clinically-proven ingredients.
Algae Extract: An innovative skin energizer, which leads to an enhancement of cell turnover and an improvement to the skin's complexion. Particularly beneficial for de-stressing the skin and providing a radiant and luminous skin.
Argireline (hexapeptide-8): Elysee was the first with a one-year exclusivity on this ingredient, which helps to reduce the depth of wrinkles in the face induced by repeated facial expressions, especially around the eyes, leading to a reduction in the appearance of superficial lines and wrinkles, with regular use and for true botox-like benefits -- naturally, not as dramatic as the medical procedure, but great cosmetic results that are out of this world, to make you look younger.
Beta 1,3-Glucan: A patented ingredient that helps repair sun damage, aging and problem skin. Clinicals prove a 27% improvement in moisturization, 56% improvement in appearance of facial wrinkles, 29% improvement of skin dryness and 74% improvement in skin elasticity and firmness.
Carnosine: A naturally occurring amino acid in the body; has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits to help the skin better address the results of oxidative stress.
Ceramides: Naturally occurring in the skin; helps to strengthen the skin's lipid barrier and improve skin smoothness.
Coenzyme Q10: Naturally occurs in your skin, but levels decrease with age. Helps to replace or compensate an important ingredient, which may boost skin regeneration and potent antioxidant benefits.
Creatine: An amino acid derivative naturally occurring in the body, which helps revitalize the skin; helps to increase the moisturization capacity of the skin. Help to strengthen the skin's lipid barrier and improve skin smoothness.
DMAE: Antioxidant benefits, improves the appearance of the skin's resilience, tone, and texture; increased smoothness, brightness and line reduction. Improvement in lift and firmness.
Epidermal Thymic Factor: A naturally derived molecule helps the skin regain it's youthful aspect; helps maintain the properties of young skin; minimizes wrinkles and expression lines, evens out skin tone, brightens ruddy complexions and helps to address environmental damage. Brings harmony to the skin's mind-body connection. Does not interfere with your own thymus.
ESCoDerm: a proprietary complex of active peptides to enhance skin comfort, helps reduce the phenomena of microtensing and visibly smoothes expression lines. Contains a cosmetic active that acts as a messenger for the senses, helping to enhance the skin's comfort and the well-being potential of your skin. A non-aggressive alternative to botox that helps combat expression wrinkles, while not as dramatic as the medical procedure, this complex provides fabulous beauty benefits.
ESCollag: an Elysee Exclusive peptide and algae complex which selectively boosts synthesis of collagen III, stimulates the formation of collagen-1, detoxifies the skin from free radicals, and protects cells from photodamage and oxidative stress. This currently is the only peptide complex on the market that boosts collagen III production by 300% in just one week.
ESCoMoist: An effective hydrocomplex of moisturizing ingredients to improve the moisture capacity of the skin; supports the skin's moisture balance system vital for healthy and smooth skin. Helps to improve skin elasticity, enhances the barrier function of the lipid layer, making the skin better equipped to combat external aggressions. Helps to continuously improve hydration and provide visible results in skin smoothness, moisture retention and helps to boost hydration with Hyaluronic acid, naturally occurring the skin, which retains 1000 times its weight in water.
ESCynthoFirm: an Elysee proprietary blend that acts as an MMP inhibitor, plus stimulates collagen and elastin to reduce the look of sagging skin. It also helps reduce degradation of the epidermis, which makes skin look dull and lifeless. This ingredient takes the skin to a whole new level. Patent-pending.
HGF: A bio-engineered plant derivative, for increased appearance of skin elasticity, texture, and tightness; helps optimize your skins own natural hGh. Promotes a firmer, more youthful skin texture while helping to reduce imperfections and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid: Increases the skins resistance to moisture loss. Helps moisturize and soften even very dry skin types. Elysee uses a plant-based Hyaluronate from France.
Matrixyl (pentapeptide-3): Launched in the Elyse line over four years ago; Presented to the 20th World Congress of Dermatology in Paris, July 2002, as an effective alternative to retinol for wrinkle reduction, without any irritation potential. Helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, with clinicals that prove: *reduction of deep wrinkles by as much as 68% and the mean wrinkle density by 46%, with continued steady improvement.
MaxiLip: Designed specifically for lip care, this complex hydrates the lips and restores glycosaminoglycans and collagen, increasing lip moisture and adding volume to improve the contour of the lips and give better definition to the lipline. Also significantly reduces the appearance of cheilites. After 29 days of treatment with this patented lip complex, furrows were reduced by up to 30%, lip moisture increased by as much as 60%, and lip volume increased by 40% on average.
Peptide Oxidases: Helps to minimize the effects of accelerated skin aging on the skin caused by stress factors such as ozone, pollution and UV irritation.
Phosphotidyl Choline: Enhances the benefits of other ingredients; provides emolliency to skin to hydrate dry, dehydrated skin.
Pycnogenol: The most powerful antioxidant available to defend against free radical formation. Free radical damage is to your skin what rust is to your car. Pycnogenol is 20% more powerful than Vitamin C and 50% more powerful than Vitamin E. This patented ingredient is combined with other advanced ingredients to provide protection, help fight destructive enzymes in the skin, and improve skin smoothness, firmness and elasticity.
Royal Jelly: A rich source of B Vitamins and amino acids, as well as a rich source of nucleic acids, RNA and DNA. Gelatin, another significant component, is one of the precursors of collagen, which is another component of Royal Jelly. It helps keep the skin looking smooth and youthful.
Structured Water Complex: Different waters resonate at different energy frequencies. Some of these frequencies are better at penetrating through the cellular wall tissue than others. Hexagonal structured water is proving to be the best. Similarly, cell wall tissue resonates at varying energy frequencies, this relating to age, location and condition of the cell tissue. Some of these frequencies absorb water easier than others. When water, with energy frequencies best suited for absorbing into the cell, is coupled with energy frequencies most successful in penetrating the cell wall, the result is more rapid hydration of the cells, than with regular pH balanced water. Structured Water technology utilized in our entire line of products combines energy signals with anti-aging ingredients to achieve the best available results. The task is to allow water to penetrate the cell wall easier (with less resistance) producing faster hydration of the cell tissue.
