– Skin is under constant assault from the environment, free radicals and the effects of aging. These weaken the supporting collagen and elastin cells that keep skin firm and supple, resulting in the formation of lines and wrinkles, the loss of skin tone, age spots and areas of discoloration. For thousands of years, though, women and men have found that salves compounded from certain botanicals – from particular types of seaweeds or various berries – have been able to restore and renew skin. The special formula of the patented Cellex-C complex, developed in 1992, has provided the same benefits as traditional botanical compounds, but with the addition of their scientifically developed form of vitamin C.

Unique Form, Special Delivery
Vitamin C provides the skin tissues with the specific key they need to renew and maintain their strength and health. At the cellular – even the genetic – level, vitamin C stimulates collagen and elastin production, helps to reverse hyperpigmentation that causes dark spots and neutralizes dangerous free radicals. Unfortunately, vitamin C is difficult for the body to acquire and retain. The body cannot naturally produce vitamin C on its own: it has to be acquired from elsewhere and, because it is water soluble, it is also quickly excreted so it has to be constantly replenished. Foods high in vitamin C are necessary for general health, but skin doesn't receive the full benefit from food sources. In fact, topically applied vitamin C is up to 20 times more effective for skin health than from ingested sources. Unfortunately, the stores of vitamin C in the skin can be reduced by up to two-thirds by exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Also, unless the form of vitamin C is true ascorbic acid, not a derivative or analog, the body cannot metabolize it into the specific form that the skin tissues require. The patented compound of Cellex-C
provides the form of vitamin C that is bioavailable – easily absorbed into the skin tissues – which converts into the specific form the skin requires, in concentrations high enough to be effective and sustaining.
Clinically Tested Partners in Skin Care
By itself, vitamin C is only one element in skin care and renewal. It does not act as a sunscreen and cannot moisturize the skin, which are important elements in good skin care. What the Cellex-C compound accomplishes is to strengthen and renew the skin tissues from within so that, combined with emollients, UV protection and other ingredients, the products can be made part of an effective skin care regimen. The benefits of the Cellex-C compound have been confirmed in scientifically rigorous clinical trials: under the supervision of leading dermatologists, it has been shown that these products provide measurable improvements in skin health and condition, including diminished wrinkles, increased smoothness, improved skin firmness, loss of skin discoloration and improved skin tone. In addition to self-appraisal by trial subjects, these improvements have been confirmed by objective image analysis, revealing how the Cellex-C compound can help the skin renew its strength and retain its beauty.
