How can I help prevent aging skin?

Your skin is your outermost protective layer, and it is exposed to many environmental elements that can contribute to signs of premature aging.

Too much exposure to UV rays can lead to sunburn and impact delicate processes that affect the skin’s growth and appearance. Over time, exposure to UV rays causes the skin to lose its elasticity and to become thickened, leathery, and wrinkled.

The more exposed your skin is to the sun, the earlier your skin will show signs of aging, and as you get older, it becomes more difficult for skin to repair itself. Over time, this damage can take a toll on your skin and its underlying connective tissue. The influence of environmental and lifestyle factors is known as extrinsic aging or photo-aging.

But outside factors aren’t the only cause of skin aging. As you age naturally, your skin begins to produce less elastin causing skin to lose elasticity and decreasing skin’s resilience. Your skin also produces less collagen, which negatively affects skin structure causing the skin to appear wrinkled and less firm. This is called intrinsic aging and it is influenced by internal physiological factors including your DNA.

By proactively caring for your skin and focusing on prevention, you can minimize some of the visible signs related to aging skin. Limit sun exposure, apply sunscreen every day, and care for your skin internally. In addition to comprehensive topical support, providing your body with the micronutrients, macronutrients and adequate hydration can help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to maintain the appearance of healthy younger looking skin.

Are Celavive® products all natural and organic?

Many people are passionate believers that natural and/or organic ingredients must be better for their skin, but this belief is not always scientifically based or accurate. As the science behind skin care formulations evolve, new and innovative ways to create products are continuing to develop.

However, even with innovation, there are basic tenets of cosmetic development that must be followed to produce safe and effective products. From selecting the most effective raw materials to ensuring stability and shelf life, science dictates the types of ingredients most suitable for inclusion in products.

Our team of scientists thoroughly researched and reviewed the ingredients included in this innovative product line for safety, stability, and efficacy. The products have also been clinically tested in humans and the results are impressive.

Only the highest quality products ever make it from bench top to market, and Celavive® is the result of years of scientific innovation in product formulation and cell-signalling research brought to you by a team of highly qualified scientists.

Do Celavive® products contain preservatives?

Some may think that preservatives are a negative aspect of a product. But preservatives protect both the product and the consumer by maintaining stability of ingredients. They also prevent the growth of potentially harmful microbes that can occur from accidental contamination by the consumer or during the manufacturing process. In addition, all products that contain water must have some type of preservative system in place to maintain safety and stability. Certain types of multifunctional ingredients offer preservative properties and other benefits to the product.

Celavive® products are preserved with ingredients including citric acid, sodium lactate, botanicals, oil extracts, and more.

Fragrance free implies that a cosmetic product so labeled has no perceptible odour. Fragrance ingredients may be added to a fragrance-free cosmetic to mask any offensive odour originating from the raw materials used, but in a smaller amount than is needed to impart a noticeable scent.

Our scientists have a strong commitment to utilize the best science and latest available research to ensure the safety of products before they are marketed. They have gone to great lengths to find a fragrance that has a light mild scent that should not for be a concern for most individuals.
