Directions: Use twice daily around the eyes, alone or under makeup. Our advanced Age-Defying Eye Gel combines three scientifically-documented patented ingredients from France: Matrixyl®, Haloxyl®, and Eyeliss®: Matrixyl® (palmitoyl pentapeptide-4), is a patented ingredient of Sederma Inc. in France that has shown to decrease wrinkle depth up to 68%! Matrixyl is different than many of the other peptides used in skin care because its results are long-lasting, not just for a mere hour after application. Its job is to specifically target and stimulate collagen synthesis and to repair damage. This function reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin firmer, smoother and more youthful looking. Haloxyl® and Dark Circles Under the Eyes. There are a number of factors that cause dark circles under the eyes, such as genetics, a lack of sleep and aging. Dark circles are one of the most difficult skin issues to treat. Haloxyl may help, even if you have already tried other over-the-counter products. Used as a topical treatment, Haloxyl is formulated to target and absorb the pigment present in the blood that is responsible for color; which, when applied to dark circles, can fade dark circles with repeated use. Haloxyl is also designed to increase the firmness in the skin around and under the eye, which may lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well. Eyeliss™ is an ingredient manufactured in France that targets puffiness and under eye bags. In clinical studies it yielded consistent, real results, leading to a patent on the unique blend. Eyeliss™ also helps reduce dark circles beneath the eyes by strengthening the capillaries there, since dark circles are often the result of leaking blood vessels, which lose blood that then pools beneath the eyes, causing not only dark circles, but also extra puffiness. A trio of powerful ingredients works in synergy to support circulation beneath the eyes, bringing more oxygen to the skin cells there, resulting in improved texture. Because it is packed with the antioxidants, Eyeliss™ also helps fight free radicals, which are especially damaging to the skin beneath the eyes. With the loss of collagen and elastin, wrinkles and fine lines can become more prominent, but Eyeliss™ helps support the elasticity of the skin beneath and around the eyes by maintaining collagen and elastin and encouraging new production, helping to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
