Skincare is often looked down upon by those who believe in only using more invasive means of brightening and tightening their skin ; such as injectables, PDO thread lifts, and even surgery. It’s hard to believe that any of the current skincare on the market has the ability to actually tighten sagging skin to a level that compares to any of these alternatives.

It’s somewhat understandable, as most skincare products can’t even get past the first layer of our skin, let alone reach our skin’s dermis.

Our skin is composed of layers; the epidermis being the outermost of the three layers that make up the skin and provide a barrier to infection from environmental pathogens — where as the dermis is the inner layer made of dense, irregular connective tissue that houses blood vessels, hair follicles, sweat glands, and other structures.

Recent tools like dermarollers and newer procedures like microneedling justify poking small holes (but holes nonetheless) into the skin in order for serums to reach deeper; past the skin’s top layers and into the dermis.

Microneedling and vampire facials have a scary new record of completely ruining the skin of its clients who naturally have small pores, massively backfiring by creating the look of large pores and damaging beautiful, delicate skin with permanent scars from the “tinyneedle marks.

Not to mention, expensive facial products are a total waste of money — as they can actually speed up the aging process due to the majority of commercial skincare products containing dangerous additives, dyes, and perfumes.

Kamilah Ferrari, owner of basedSKIN. , thought there had to be another way to reaching the skin on a much more personal level.

Ladies and gentleman, our prayers have been answered; as topical skincare is officially a thing of the past!

Sure, basedSKIN.’s “Collugreen” (coll-U-green) serums may be applied topically, but the effects surpass all other skincare on the market by functioning on a further CELLULAR-LEVEL.

Just as Retinol is able to work on a deeper level, surpassing all other ingredients in the industry, Collugreen’s revolutionary Matrixyl 3000 and the latest Matrixyl Synthe’6 contain polypeptides that accelerate cellular function.

What are peptides?

A peptide is a protein that is part of the building block of our cells. Peptides help our cells communicate. These proteins can be found naturally in your skin, but as we inevitably age, these peptides can’t do their job like they used to.

Matrixyl 3000 is an anti-aging peptide comprised of two proteins. It is used to target a wide range of aging signs, which helps your skin look and act more youthful. To diminish the signs of aging, it promotes collagen and elastin in the under-layers of skin.

In fact; Collugreen increases Collagen production by up to 350%!

It feeds our stores of glycosaminoglycan and fibroblasts, strengthening the connective tissue to firm aging complexions.

By using Matrixyl, the Collagen your face has lost will actually become REPLACED, and your skin will look and feel fuller and more youthful!

This is stirring up a new and dramatic change in the beauty industry, as temporary dermal facial fillers have the potential of being replaced by cellular skincare that can actually create PERMANENT EFFECTS.

It even supports vibrant skin through the cessation of blemishes and the removal of impurities.

However, basedSKIN. takes it even further by also including Matrixyl Synthe’6 — the most advanced version of the Matrixyls.

Matrixyl™ Synthe® ‘6 enhances the production of six skin-rebuilding essentials:

3 Types Of Collagen:

Collagen I — The main collagen component of skin.

Collagen II — The type of collagen that is first present in the very early stages of tissue repair.

Collagen IV — The collagen responsible for smoothing skin at a cellular level.

Two Types of Protein:

Fibronectin A — A protein that stimulates repair of tissue.

Lamin5 — A protein that strengthens and smooths the dermis.

Hyaluronic Acid:

Improves skin hydration, elasticity, and moisture.

Focusing on these 6 essentials ensures that skin can smooth and repair wrinkles at a cellular level, dramatically reducing the signs of aging while rebuilding and strengthening skin.

As wrinkles begin to smooth, Matrixyl® Synthe’6® also activates skin to produce more of the cells that keep it looking young and healthy.

Which is better? Matrixyl 3000 or Matrixyl Synthe’6?

Neither one is inherently better than the other — they just support collagen synthesis in slightly different ways. They are both incredibly potent and effective, nourishing and non-irritating, and there are no risks of ill side-effects from using either or both.

The Collugreen Rapid Producing Collagen Serum includes both versions of Matrixyls, as well as the very important Coenzyme Q10.

Ubiquinone (Coq10) protects cell membranes from reactive oxygen species. Your cells use “CoQ10” for growth and maintenance, and its levels decrease in our bodies as we age. The Coq10 helps your cells to build collagen and elastin, thus reducing coarse skin texture and wrinkles!

It also includes Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate), and Aloe Barbadensis.

The Collugreen+ Brightening Serum replaces the Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E of the Rapid Producing Collagen Serum with Vitamin C for a range of benefits including the brightening of discoloration and a more suitable formula for those with oily and acne-prone skin.

The Collugreen+ Brightening Serum is formulated with Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate — a stable derivative of Vitamin C (It is considered light-stable, oxygen-stable, and water-soluble). It is tailored to work for those who are sensitive to Vitamin C or have sensitive skin, in general.

The benefits of basedSKIN.’s Collugreen (coll•U•green) serums and moisturizers not only work in the anti-aging department, but they ultimately balance the skin’s moisture levels.

Apart from the multiple hydrating ingredients found in their serums, the Collugreen Non-Comedogenic Moisturizers help in alleviating the following skin conditions:

  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne Rosacea
  • Varicose Eczema
  • Lichen Planus

What is Non-Comedogenic?

Ingredients used in skincare are typically rated for the level which they will contribute to pore-clogging, called a “Comedogenic Scale”. The scale is based from zero to five, with zero representing an ingredient which will not clog pores, and five indicating an ingredient which is very pore-clogging. The basedSKIN. oil-based moisturizers rate a ZERO on the scale because they are entirely non-comedogenic!

Their moisturizers repair damaged skin from the inside out — going deeper to ultimately diminish fine lines and wrinkles. As they so closely match our own skin lipids, they are able to penetrate our cells and actually lubricate the surfaces between them! Better yet, the moisturizers will naturally balance your skin’s oil levels all on their own!

Together, their serums and moisturizers help to completely eliminate wrinkles and scars, reverse UV damage, and erase hyperpigmentation all while fighting and protecting skin against free radicals!

Cellular-Skincare is the future — and it begins with basedSKIN.’s collUgreen.

If COLLUGREEN isn’t well known now, just wait. It has officially introduced a cruelty-free way to maximize Collagen in our bodies without the need to consume animal-derived collagen products — as well as produce Collagen (as well as elastin and Hyaluronic Acid) internally; rather than rely on dermal fillers to be injected under our skin every 3-6 months.

Finally, skincare actually worth celebrating!
