Next generation beauty and much more……
Skin+Beyond (S+B) offers an “All in one skin solution” that improves both the epidermal and dermal layers of skin. Using a synergistic combination of patented pomegranate extract (PE), Pomella®, Glycine (amino acid) and niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3), S+B offers potent free radical scavenging ability via antioxidant action courtesy of punicalagins or polyphenols only found in pomegranate. Combined with potent anti-inflammatory, prebiotic and collagen boosting properties, S+B is well placed to meet the more demanding needs of consumers.
How does it improve skin (and hair, nails)?
- PE boosts water content by 50% and skin hydration overall by 40% by boosting the production of hyaluronic acid
- PE prevents glycation induced damage to keratinocytes (epidermis) and dermal fibroblasts (dermis); glycation results from insults such as UV rays, sugars reacting with proteins to form advanced glycation end (AGE) products
- Niacinamide boosts ceramide production by helping to retain moisture and preserve skin barrier integrity
- PE’s potent antioxidant activity protects dermal fibroblasts (collagen and elastin producing cells) from oxidative damage similar to MitoQ, a bioengineered super antioxidant
- PE and glycine boost collagen synthesis, and in fact glycine alone boosts collagen better than expensive collagen supplements; glycine is the rate limiting amino acid in collagen synthesis
- PE boosts hyaluronic acid (HA) in the extracellular matrix by 50%, and prevents cross linkages; cross linkages prevent removal of damaged collagen. NB Exogenous HA is cleared from the dermis and is rapidly degraded; this includes skin creams and HA taken orally
Why is S+B different?
Patented, standardized pomegranate extract (PE) exerts potent prebiotic properties for health including skin and hair. PE polyphenols including ellagic acid and punicalagins are hydrolyzed by gut bacteria to produce a novel postbiotic, Urolithin-A that has many health enhancing properties including skin; in fact Urolithin-A has been suggested in a study as an alternative to retinol, the darling of the skin care industry. PE’s potent antioxidant capacity and ability to make Urolithin-A makes it unique as a skin protector tied to the gut-skin axis.
NB Urolithin-A is very expensive with only one supplier in the USA, and is synthetic; pomegranate extract or PE makes it naturally in the gut!
Who is Skin+Beyond for?
S+B was launched in response to a growing demand for beauty-from-within solutions as woman (and men) are looking at skin from a more holistic health perspective. This trend is good news since S+B bioactives via prebiotic action boost the gut microbiome that is linked to skin health via the gut-skin axis. Further consumers are also demanding natural products that meet multiple need states including:
- Skin epidermal and dermal layers and hair
- Bone health
- Joint health
- Gut health
- Heart health
- Sports performance & recovery
- Improved longevity and healthspan
Look no further than S+B.
The skin benefits offered by Skin+Beyond are just the start in health promotion; via multiple modes of action including the production of Urolithin-A in the gut by PE polyphenols. Urolithin-A boosts or induces mitophagy, the process of regenerating mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell. This is key to optimizing cellular energy or adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production that is the crux in preserving the health of all bodily systems including skin, heart, brain, muscles, joints, bones, immunity etc. Poor lifestyle or ageing cause a breakdown in this process, causing premature ageing.
In fact Urolithin-A has been proven to prevent and reverse sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass and strength that are the ultimate are key to longevity.
PE antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action prevents and reverses arterial plaque, a key indicator for heart disease and stroke
PE boosts hormone health since it contains the highest amount of estrogen in the plant kingdom; hence the reason it is a boon for postmenopausal women; further PE boosts healthy estrogen in younger women, and prevents xenoestrogens (toxic metabolites) from chemicals and other products e.g. plastics.
PE and glycine in S+B are powerful boosters of glutathione; the “King of antioxidants” and ultimate protector of cells from free radicals and oxidative stress NB Glycine is a key amino acid in glutathione synthesis.
NB Patented pomegranate extract or PE is different to other pomegranate products as it has been standardised in terms of bioactive ingredients.
Glycine offers many complementary and unique benefits to PE including detoxification (via glutathione synthesis) of heavy metals and chemicals such as Roundup®, a highly damaging, pervasive herbicide that impairs the collagen structure not only in skin, but joints and arterial walls; hence one reason why glycine is effective for preventing osteoarthritis and heart disease. As mentioned above, glycine also boosts collagen synthesis better than collagen supplements, and prevents tissue injury and improves recovery in sports and fitness.
Further glycine has been found in a rodent study to increase lifespan by 5%. Furthermore glycine protects against gut barrier damage and associated inflammation, and exerts anti-obesity and anti-diabetic properties.
As well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, glycine also exhibits immune boosting attributes.
NB Glycine was originally classified as a non-essential amino acid due to the body’s ability to synthesise it from other proteins. However due to an evolutionary glitch, this synthesis offers only small amounts of glycine that fall significantly short (10g per day) for optimal collagen synthesis. This limitation in glycine synthesis explains why not only humans but elephants, rhinos and monkeys suffer from osteoarthritis at some point in their lives.
