|Science of Telomeres
Telomeres, located at the ends of the chromosomes, are key genetic elements involved in the regulation of the cellular ageing process that shorten with repeated replications and therefore with age.
August 2012 excerpt from Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Review by Lynne Larsen
“The complex of hydrolysed yeast and soya proteins is designed to help preserve telomeres, which cap and protect cell chromosomes. Research has shown that telomeres, a repeating sequence of nucleotides measuring thousands of base pairs in length, play an important role in cell division as they help preserve DNA information. As ageing occurs, however, telomeres shorten with each cell division, losing dozens of base pairs per year”.Telomerase enzyme
In a study reported in the Journal of Science by Jerry Shay Ph.D. Professor, it was found that a new genetic engineering technology makes it possible to introduce the enzyme telomerase into the normal human dermal fibroblasts – the cells that make collagen and elastin.
|N.V. Perricone M.D. predicted in his book “The Wrinkle Cure” (dated 2000) that we will be able to benefit from this discovery. We already have the ability to introduce telomerase into the skin cells using topical lotion that contains liposomes, tiny capsules that can penetrate the cell membrane. Perricone reported that today’s tocotrienol, spin trap, and telomerase discoveries are giant steps toward solving tomorrow’s big questions about how and why we grow old.|
Thanks to the antioxidant revolution, you now possess nature’s secrets to keeping your skin smooth, supple, glowing and virtually line-free for decades to come.
Moreover, one of the most interesting medical conditions to affect this subgroup of the population is photo-ageing. Baby boomers spent their formative years outdoors and in the sun with the hope of obtaining a “healthy tan,” without the benefit of today’s sunscreens, and as you can imagine, it has left its mark – pardon the pun.
Today, we can help you to combat the ageing process with our scientifically tested sunscreen that offers you the ultimate protection options with anti-ageing. Our sunscreen range follows in the DermaFix MD Prescriptives range of Cosmeceutical Skin Care: DermaFix DermaShield SPF 50 High Protection UVA/UVB Sunscreen complies with South African Standards 1557:2013; ISO24444, ISO24443.
