You’ve GOT to try this… Youth Restore from CellDerma – Peptide and Growth Factor Anti-Ageing Serum.
We love keeping up with skincare trends and the hottest ingredients creating buzz in the beauty industry. Enter: growth factors… the trending skin ingredient set to be huge in 2023 and beyond!
As we continue to move into Autumn/Winter 2022 (and look ahead to 2023, where we predict big things for the CellDerma bioceutical skincare collection by Dr Dev Patel!), it’s time to change up our skincare regimes to reflect the changing seasons. Why should we be incorporating growth factors into this, what exactly are they and why are we so hyped about Youth Restore? Well, read on to learn more.
“Growth factors are made by our skin cells to repair and regenerate cells that have been damaged through ageing or other factors such as trauma and UV radiation,” Dr Dev Patel, founder of CellDerma, explains.
“As we get older, the body’s natural production of growth factors slows down due to our cells making negligible amounts. This means we start seeing the manifestation of ageing cells from as early as our mid to late 20’s.”
Growth factors give your skin the TLC it deserves as the seasons start to change. Controlled clinic studies have shown that with topical use, growth factors have the ability to:
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as a result of new collagen synthesis
Improve the appearance of age spots and even out pigmentation Improve skin texture
Increase elasticity due to production of elastin
Promote firmer, plumper, tighter and brighter skin
CellDerma GF5 and CellDerma Youth Restore have been formulated with vegan growth factors that use recombinant technology.
“Many other brands will use growth factors sourced from human or animal tissue, such as fat cells, placenta or umbilical cord,” Dr Dev Patel tells us. “CellDerma’s growth factors are structurally bioidentical to human placental growth factors.”
Each set of growth factors in GF5 and Youth Restore will regenerate cells, stimulate new collagen and elastin production which increases the production of new cells and reduces inflammation.
While growth factors are a memorable term, you might be left wondering whether they have any other names. Since they are proteins (peptides), you’ll find that they’ve been referred to by their peptide name. “E.g. Oligopeptide-1 is the same as Epidermal Growth Factor and if you see a ‘sh’ as part of the name, then the product is synthetic meaning it hasn’t been made from human or animal tissue,” Dr Dev reveals.
Free yourself from those Autumn/Winter skincare woes by incorporating CellDerma’s collection into your skincare routine. Although growth factors are perfect for use all year round, it’s always a good idea to use them as the days get colder; to keep dry, dull, irritated and uneven skin at bay.
“Our skin does suffer with the combination of central heating and cold harsh weather during this time of year,” Dr Dev reveals. “Growth factors promote the repair of all skin cells… limiting and even reversing the damage that is being caused during the colder seasons.”
CellDerma Youth Restore Serum
The CellDerma Youth Restore Serum contains a hydrating and smoothing formula with a breakthrough blend of age-defying neuropeptides, bio-regenerative growth factors, amino acids and botanical extracts. The serum provides powerful antioxidant support against environment stress and contains a number of anti- inflammatory extracts. “Youth Restore has around 30 other active ingredients making it a superb single serum solution of anti-ageing,” Dr Dev says.
With a revolutionary formula containing five unique growth factors identical to those found in the human placenta, GF5 addresses all of the key signs of ageing; promoting regeneration and reversing signs of damaged skin. “Potentiating ingredients such as Vitamin B9 augment growth factor efficacy,” Dr Dev explains. “Neuropeptides also help minimise and prevent lines and wrinkles. GF5 is great for targeting troubled skin or around the times of procedures such as laser, micro needling and radio frequency.”
To reduce the risk of irritation, Dr Dev also recommends combining GF5 with Retin-Ace:
“Retin-ACE contains a 4th generation retinoid that surpasses the clinical potency of retinol but without the higher risk or irritation.”
“Retin-ACE is the perfect winter compliment to GF5 Bio-regenerative Growth Factor Serum. Users can upgrade from GF5 to the Youth Restore Serum once they’ve been using these other active ingredients for a few months.”
