Amino Acid Hydroxyproline
Amino Acids are the basic building blocks of the body helping to form thousands of different types of proteins. Hydroxyproline is essential in collagen formation. This amino acid stimulates the contraction of collagen fibres to help firm and plump up deeper lying wrinkles. It also protects the skin’s structure against degradation.
Wild Yam and Soya Extract
Both plants have long been used in a nutritional context for soothing the hormonal fluctuations that mature women experience. They are both natural phytosterols. Soya helps to increase the lipid content of the skin. Wild Yam stimulates collagen and elastin production.
