When it comes to skin care, there’s one thing I’ve never understood: if my skin was not engineered in a laboratory, why should I use products with ingredients that were? Wouldn’t it be better to care for our skin with all-natural ingredients?
Dr. Jim Beckman and the team at Therapon believe so. That’s why they’ve chosen to use ingredients that actually assist our bodies’ natural, metabolic chemical reactions. Each Theraderm product uses ingredients specifically chosen to:
- Lactic Acid
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Super-fine Lanolin
- Soluble Keratin Peptides
OPC, found in Theraderm OPC Reparative Serum, speeds up vitamin C’s ability to repair collagen. It’s also regarded as the most potent free radical scavenger. It’s not only 20 times better at this than vitamin C, but it actually refreshes and restores spent vitamin C in the body, enabling it to return to building new collagen and repairing broken collagen strands.
Alpha Lipoic Acid, also found in the OPC Serum, is an excellent free radical scavenger that can pass through lipid (oil-based) cell compartments. It can get into and protect cell areas that OPC or vitamin C cannot get to because they are soluble only in water. It is also active in the metabolism reactions of glucose, which is our cells’ primary energy source.
Super-fine lanolin is an animal oil harvested from wool. It is hypoallergenic and hydrophilic, meaning it easily penetrates into a water-based environment. Animal oils penetrate into the skin to give lasting restoration to dry skin for days. Theraderm uses super-fine Lanolin in several products, including Theraderm Enriched Facial Moisturizer.
Soluble Keratin Peptides act just like the template proteins our bodies depend on for rebuilding skin proteins rapidly and naturally. Their actions are supported and accentuated by several products in the Theraderm Skin Renewal System.
The bottom-line is this: all-natural is the way to go. Even if you can’t tell the difference, your body (and your skin) can!
