Your New Super Active in Anti-ageing Skincare

In the age where skincare reigns supreme, SKIN functional – a local leading skincare company is spearheading the concept of pre-ageing, pro-ageing and anti-ageing through their effective treatments that help you manage your skin over the years, not only for cosmetic appeal but also to promote skin health and optimal functioning. Whether you are in your 30s, 40s, 50s or beyond, committing to a consistent skincare routine can help counteract signs of skin ageing and dehydration that can occur over time.

Kevin Khosa, Customer Service Manager at SKIN functional explained that: “In my years of servicing customers from all walks of life on how to properly care for their skin, I have observed many claiming their main skin concern was ageing. The best recommendation we offer our customers is to focus on healthy skin while embracing your skin’s natural ageing process and helping slow it down using products with reproducible results®.”

Today, SKIN functional reveals its breakthrough serum for ageing skin that repairs skin damage while improving skin firmness and elasticity. This product is multi-functional due its expert formulation that offers multiple skin benefits.

Matrixyl + EGF + Peptides Collagen Plus
“This product is a highly concentrated anti-ageing serum, formulated with Matrixyl 3000, Epidermal Growth Factor and 4 different powerful peptides. Epidermal Growth Factor plays a pivotal role in wound healing and maintaining tissue homeostasis by regulating cell survival, proliferation, migration and differentiation. Increases natural production of collagen, elastic and hyaluronic acid,” added Khosa.

While seeing a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, it will also assist in providing powerful antioxidant protection that helps decrease skin inflammation. It can be tricky to know where to start, so let’s cut through the clutter.

Matrixyl 3000 VS Retinol VS Hyaluronic Acid
Matrixyl is an anti-ageing peptide that produces double collagen growth and repairs aged skin cells. It has a wrinkle busting protein that keeps skin plum and youthful. In terms of effectiveness, Matrixyl 3000 and Retinol both stand out as winners, but they work in different ways. A study shows that even a small amount of Matrixyl 3000 can reduce wrinkles like Retinol, but it's gentler on the skin. On the other hand, both hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl are effective skincare ingredients, but they provide different benefits. While hyaluronic acid reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating the skin, Matrixyl boosts collagen production, improving the skin's elasticity.

Epidermal growth factor (EGF)
“Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is a growth factor that plays a pivotal role in wound healing and maintaining tissue homeostasis by regulating cell survival, proliferation, migration, and differentiation. From birth until adulthood, our bodies produce these skin-replenishing signalling proteins called growth factors. EGF plays a vital role in skin health, vitality, and appearance. as it affects our natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. EGFs can be more gentle on the skin than retinoids. If your skin is too sensitive to tolerate retinoids, then growth factors can be a substitute to stimulate collagen, even tone, and decrease roughness with much less irritation,” explained Khosa.

When it comes to Peptides, choosing between peptides and retinol we recommend incorporating both ingredients into your routine. If you are new to retinoids we recommend starting with our 0,3% Retinol and slowly building up if you're seeking faster and more dramatic results.

The formulation of these three incredible ingredients provides your skin the ultimate anti-ageing serum that not only promotes an effective treatment for reducing the signs of ageing but also assists in proper skin health and functioning.
