Q: Can you tell me more about the active ingredients in natural anti-aging skincare products?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
The skincare industry is a fast-paced, highly competitive business, full of brands vying for your attention. MyChelle Dermaceuticals’ singular obsession has been to create the most effective, nontoxic skin care products in the country. Today, MyChelle is the number one brand of facial skin care in the natural products industry simply because our products deliver powerful, quick and visible results without using nasty ingredients or toxic chemicals. Our obsession with creating amazingly effective skin care products is turning heads (and faces!) every day.
We journey the world over searching for the most potent natural ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. Whether it’s edelweiss from mountain tops, buddleja from the rain forest or the amazing pumpkins right here in our backyard, our sources for wild crafted plants and hand selected fruits reflect our stubborn pursuit of the highest quality plant extracts, plant stem cells and essences.
In the end, our customers are guaranteed that each product is packed with a unique and proprietary combination of ingredients at the highest concentration levels that feed skin with all the nutrients it could ever need—and the result is healthier, more radiant skin that glows with appreciation.
MyChelle focuses on cultivating and creating products packed with the latest and greatest ingredients. Our skincare solutions are packed with antioxidants, peptides and plant stem cells. Our newest ingredient to make its debut is the peptide Matrixyl® synthe’6™, found in the NoTox ™ Anti-Wrinkle Serum and Supreme Polypeptide Creams. Matrixyl synthe’6 is the new, clean addition to the popular Matrixyl family of ingredients. This powerhouse peptide dramatically softens and refines the skin. Noticeable improvements are visible in four key ways:
- Reduces wrinkle volume by up to 21%
- Reduces wrinkle depth by up to 19%
- Increases skin smoothness
- Increases hydration levels
“MyChelle is committed to the evolution of clean and balanced beauty backed by the support of science and innovation,” says Sarah Eggenberger, Vice President of Product Development at MyChelle. “The skincare landscape has changed dramatically with Matrixyl® synthe’6™. This ingredient is aligned with our mission of pushing the limits of advancements in results-driven, natural skin care with pure, nontoxic ingredients. The results are astounding; you have to see for yourself!”
Other hot ingredients in anti-aging are plant stem cells, and here at MyChelle we lead the way in plant stem cell technology! You can find the revolutionary edelweiss plant stem cells in our Fabulous Eye Cream. Edelweiss inhibits collagen breakdown and is clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth by 15% after only 20 days of use. It also naturally contains cytoprotective (ability to protect cells) properties.
The ground-breaking PhytoCellTec™ apple stem cells found in the Apple Brightening Serum trigger skin’s natural regenerative process while reducing line depth up to 15% in just four weeks. This powerful peptide diminishes hyperpigmentation and improves wrinkles. This is the first topical ingredient proven to protect human skin stem cells and delay the natural aging process by maintaining the activity of skin stem cells. It triggers the skin’s cell potential for infinite regeneration while reducing wrinkle depth.
The latest plant stem cell to join the MyChelle line is the buddleja plant stem cell found in the Perfect C Serum. The buddleja protects against photo-damage and oxidative stress through antioxidant activity. This innovative stem cell takes a comprehensive approach against photoaging by protecting the skin from UV-induced stress and controlling matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activation.
At MyChelle, we continue to develop the most efficacious skin care with the highest quality ingredients. Nature didn’t cut corners when it made the ingredients we use in our beautiful skin care products. Not only do we use nature’s most effective ingredients, but we also skillfully and scientifically combine them to create unmatched visible results—ones you won’t get from anyone except MyChelle. We have infused these products with amazing ingredients that will ensure their performance exceeds your expectations.
