Algaktiv Zen helps to prevent stress induced damage and restores balance to the skin. It visibly reduces scaliness and the depth of wrinkles on the skin.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Algaktiv Zen is a translucent orange, oily liquid which is comprised of an exclusive blend of microalgae with sunflower oil. It is free from GMOs and preservatives.

It binds to the glucocorticoid receptor to prevent stress-induced damage, thus restoring the balance of the skin. Tests on people showed that in just 15 days, wrinkle depth had been reduced by 15% and skin scaliness reduced by 13%. Skin radiance was improved by 10%. Dry and flaky skin improved. Most impressively, there was an immediate decrease in nervous hand sweat of the 90% of the volunteers tested.

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and is deeply connected with our neurological system. It is affected by daily stress, pollution, weather and environmental factors such as central heating. Naturally our sleep patterns also affect the way our skin functions.

Cortisol is a glucocorticoid (steroid hormone) and is produced from cholesterol in the two adrenal glands located on top of each kidney. Our bodies have a normal cortisol circadian rhythm that is vital for both the physical and psychological repair of our bodies.

Cortisol is normally released in response to stress whether physical or emotional. When daily stresses disrupt our normal cortisol circadian rhythm we suffer the after effects which can age the skin and can cause a reduction in the levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. This can lead to problems such as dry and dull skin, increased scarring and delay in repairs, thinning of the skin and barrier disruptions of the skin.

The individual materials that make up Algaktiv Zen are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (Cosing) here.

It protects from modern society's top two skin lifestyle stressors of fatigue and inner stress and can create a relaxed skin appearance. It restores the skin's natural circadian rhythm which improves its healing ability.

TRADITIONAL USE

Traditionally, it has been spas and spa retreats that had the greatest effect in reducing stress levels that affect the skin. Of course, the client has to go back to work and back home after the wonderful time they had at the spa and even paying off the credit card bill for the spa experience will add to the stress levels.

With the older cosmetic legislation, many mainstream cosmetic manufacturers made outrageous claims that completely stepped over the boundaries of what a cosmetic was and were making medical claims for their products. The legislation has tightened up a lot in recent years and allowed a product such as Algaktiv Zen to be sold as a cosmetic product. However, when you see the effects it can have you on the skin you will agree that it appears to be so much more.
