There is a new cream, which is very effective for acne scars, burns, keloids and surgical scars.
Scar Repairex, is a revolutionary new formulation that has been clinically tested, licensed and produced in the EU, and contains some of the most effective ingredients for the reduction of scars.
This cream is,a silicone-based cream formulation with a combination of both powerful anti-oxidants,essential nutrients,vitamins and natural anti-inflammatory agents that are required for healthy skin renewal.
Scar Repairex is non-irritant, non-greasy and easily absorbed into the skin. This acts by forming a completely invisible film on the skin, which helps reduce the production of collagen; instead encouraging the growth of normal, healthy skin cells. This considerably improves the appearance of potentially embarrassing scars. The science behind a scar
As soon as the ‘dermis’ (deep skin layer) is damaged, for whatever reason(see below), the body immediately begins a reparative process.
- Numerous cells migrate to the damaged area
- Some of these cells, called macrophages remove dead cells and debris
- Other cells, called fibroblasts, produce a fibre called collagen
- The collagen ‘bridges the gaps’ over the damaged area to heal the dermis
- The initial wound is sealed
- Unfortunately, the fibroblasts continue to produce collagen even after the initial process in complete
- This over-production of collagen is what forms a SCAR.
The Scar repairing cream should ideally contain the following ingredients, for aiding scar tissue repair and reducing unsightly appearance.
Cyclopentasiloxane A transparent, non-greasy, non-irritant, liquid silicone that forms an effective “cross link”, which is easily absorbed into the skin
Dimethicone A silicone used as an emollient (skin softeners) that allows its application to feel smooth. In addition, this ingredient quickly evaporates, without leaving any greasy residue A combination of these two encourages growth factors that depress the collagen-producing fibroblasts, whilst providing optimum hydration for keratinocyte (healthy skin cell) growth
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 stimulates the development of new collagen & elastin, leading to rapid healing
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide A tripeptide that stimulates the healthy growth of the cell matrix and connective tissue
These polypeptides are essential to stimulate the growth of elastin, which allows the growth of a normal flexible skin layer, after an injury.
Retinyl Palmitate (vitamin A) essential for normal growth of cells and healthy skin. Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) promotes healthy skin
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea Extract) stimulates important anti-oxidants and neutralises free radicals at cellular level.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate a stable Vitamin C, which is a powerful anti-oxidant that helps neutralise harmful free radicals in cells. It also aids rapid healing.
This powerful combination of anti-oxidants removes free-radicals, which are generated following any injury of the skin. These free radicals promote inflammation & stimulate fibroblasts, which then over produce collagen. This over-production of collagen is what causes the thickness of the scar. Lecithin important source of Choline, Inositol, & Linoleic acid, which are part of all cell walls, and play an important role in cell growth and function.
Persea Gratissima oil obtained from avocado pear, and consists principally of the glycerides of fatty acids (palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleic & linolenic). It is rich in vitamins, A, B1, B2, D, E , Potassium & Lecithin. This oil is most easily absorbed into the skin, working on the tissues beneath the superficial layer.
These two ingredients contain all the necessary nutrients and vitamins required by healthy skin cells, called keratinocytes. These help encourage and promote the growth of normal skin. Rutin has powerful anti-oxidant & anti-inflammatory properties that strengthen capillaries and aid healing.
Phaseolus Lunatus extract this protein factor has anti-inflammatory properties. These anti-inflammatory substances are important in reducing the swelling and redness that happens in wounds, therefore, discouraging the production of scar-forming collagen.
Allantoin is Keratolytic; has the effect of softening skin and is a rapid cell regenerator This substance has the effect of breaking the skin keratin protein, which would otherwise form a barrier to the deep penetration of the ingredients listed above.
Isopropyl Palmitate derived from palmitic acid in coconut oil, which is an excellent moisturiser that forms a thin film, and easily penetrates the skin.
This ester forms a thin layer over the skin in order to retain the moisture and promote the growth of the healthy keratinocytes, (normal skin cells) at the expense of collagen-making fibroblasts.
