Because you don’t have to look your age!

Diminish the appearance of fine lines with this dynamic cream serum

It aids in firming skin, improve elasticity and repairing broken collagen bonds. The dynamically wonderful ingredients in this cream are solely geared toward improving the look and feel of aging skin. It can be used alone as a moisturizer or a serum under your favorite CL  moisturizer.

-SKIN TYPE-
Normal, Dry, Very Dry – Mature Skin

-WHAT IT DOES-
Helps to reduce the continued formation of fine lines and wrinkles, improves firmness, plumps and tightens skin for a more ageless appearance.

  • This cream utilizes Gladback™ Meadowfoam,  Argan oil, TRYLAGEN® and SYN®-HYCAN

Key ingredient – Gladback™  a multi-functional active ingredient which increases skin thickness, radiance and microcirculation, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Let me explain microcirculation and why that is important. The main functions of the microcirculation are the delivery of oxygen and nutrients and the removal of carbon dioxide. Increased oxygen to the skin aids in fighting cancer, aging and cellular breakdown. Gladback™ rolls back the effects of aging in skin thickness, microcirculation, radiance and firmness. The result is a younger and more radiant skin. The growth and maintenance of blood capillaries in the dermis (middle layer of the skin) are partially under the control of estrogen. Blood flow through the dermal capillaries is reduced during menopause, and less nutrients and oxygen are available to the Stratum Germinativum or Basal Cell layers of the epidermis. The breakdown of the Basal cell layer is where the formation of wrinkles begin. This contributes to the thinning of the epidermis and a slower cell turnover rate, and we begin to lose the protective barrier on the epidermis which leads to increased trans-epidermal water loss and dry skin. GladbackTM  also contains hyaluronic acid which aids in cohesion and repair of skin tissue, it strengthens tissue union. It boosts the expression of collagen IV and strengthens skins stability.

Gladback™ is poria cocos, a well-known fungus in Asian traditional medicine used as a purifying, antioxidant and softening agent.

Meadowfoam oil is high in Vitamin E

Argan oil is hydrating and nourishing

TRYLAGEN® is a combination of active peptides and proteins that can fight the processes that affect the quantity and quality of collagen as we age. It acts on collagen via 3 main functions:

1. Collagen boosting - During aging, the synthesis of collagen gradually declines. The active ingredients in TRYLAGEN® boost the synthesis of collagen helping to compensate for our decreased production as we age.

2. Collagen organization - TRYLAGEN® controls collagen fibril dimensions by uniformising their diameter and spacing them regularly. This provides a better cohesion and stabilization of collagen fibers, and gives suppleness to the skin.

3. Collagen protection - After a certain age the degradation of collagen speeds up, due to an increase in MMP (matrix metalloproteinases) levels. Collagenases, a specific type of MMP, cleave fibrillar collagen into smaller fragments, which are then susceptible to further proteolysis. TRYLAGEN® inhibits the production of human MMP-2 and MMP-3, therefore avoiding excessive collagen damage in aged skin. Its anti-collagenase activity protects collagen from degradation.

In addition to enzymatic degradation, another process that damages collagen is glycation. Glycation is a reaction between proteins and sugars in our skin. Sugars act as a kind of glue that sticks proteins together. When glycation affects collagen fibers, they lose their flexibility and elasticity. TRYLAGEN® has also proved to inhibit glycation, avoiding the formation of AGEs (Advanced GlycationEndproducts), protecting skin from the loss of elasticity.

A cream containing TRYLAGEN® proved to reduce significantly the depth of wrinkles around the eyes, thanks to the overall improvement in both the quantity and quality of skin collagen.

SYN®-HYCAN - Loss of skin firmness is one very visible sign of aging. SYN®-HYCAN helps to fight sagging skin by boosting hyaluronan content and increasing the expression of decorin and lumican.

Hyaluronan (HA) plays an important role in the skin. This glucosaminoglycan (GAG) consists of a long sugar chain that can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The excellent moisture-holding property leads to a gel-like framework for collagen, elastin and skin cells. Also important is its ability to act as a filler, which helps provide the skin with mechanical cushioning. SYN®-HYCAN boosts hyaluronan production and allows needle-free HA-based face contour remodeling.

Decorin and lumican are two important proteoglycans of the dermis. Their protein part binds to a collagen fibril while the GAG part acts as a spacer between the fibrils. The result is the formation of thinner collagen fibrils with increased quality and strength.

Both activities of SYN®-HYCAN work nicely together: Fresh hyaluronan and stronger collagen fibrils result in a visible remodeling effect and a firmer skin.

SYN®-HYCAN is a tripeptide which helps to fight skin sagging by boosting hyaluronan production and improving collagen fibrillogenisis. SYN®-HYCAN has a firming and remodeling effect by stimulation of GAG (glycosaminoglycan) biosynthesis. SYN®-HYCAN increases Decorin and Lumican levels for better collagen fibers.

SYN®-HYCAN is a glycerin-based aqueous solution that is both preservative and PEG-free.

Recycling – Naked Packaging at Calla Lily Cosmetics

Our naked packaging choice!

90% of all products are in some cardboard or paperboard packaging, sometimes in multiple layers. Inner, Outer, and actual product packaging adds three times the cardboard and paperboard to products.

80% of retailers do recycle cardboard and paperboard, in spite of this, cardboard still makes up 41% of our municipal waste streams.

At Calla Lily we made the decision to use recyclable materials whenever possible for our packaging. We feel we can achieve our own unique style without sacrificing our environment. This also led us to our naked packaging philosophy. We may choose to, from time to time, use some secondary packaging but by and large we strive to be 100% naked packaging.

We want our products to stand on their own feet and help mother earth along the way.
