About Glissandra™ Skincare Inc.
Glissandra™ Skincare Inc. is a network marketing company (also known as multi-level marketing, MLM, direct sales, or community commerce) dedicated to providing effective anti-aging skincare through its holistic approach to skin health. Glissandra’s comprehensive skincare system is the result of over 20 years of research and development at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, led by Professor Robert Ko, PhD (University of British Columbia). Over 100 research papers have been published on its proprietary key ingredient, Glissandrin™, a suite of natural compounds extracted from the Schisandra berry. In-vivo and in-vitro studies have proven the ability of Glissandrin™ to address mitochondrial decay, the leading cause of aging, and to enhance the cell’s natural ability to fight oxidative damage (http://glissandra.com).
Half a century ago, a German dermatologist concocted an ointment to treat skin that had undergone harsh cosmetic procedures. Dubbed a “blemish balm” or “BB cream”, the creation gained popularity in Asia, with Korean customers leading the way.
Now, BB creams are all the rage in North American, as major brands launch their own version of the multi-tasking hybrid that aims to bridge the gap between skincare and cosmetics.
It’s hard to believe that any product can replace all the steps in your skincare routine without compromising the effectiveness of each. But when we compare the claims made by BB creams with the proven benefits of the Glissandra Serum, it’s clear that Glissandra has been developing its own interpretation of a BB cream in the decades of research behind its potent Serum.
Glissandra Serum is powered by Glissandrin™, a patented suite of health-promoting compounds extracted from the Schisandra berry. This youth-preserving fruit has been the foundation of thousands of years of traditional Chinese medicine, and its potent extracts are now the subject of intensive study in Western medicine, as scientists search for a sustainable way to maintain the function of the body’s organs as we age.
Let’s take a look at how the Glissandra Serum, with Glissandrin at its core, stacks up against BB creams.
|BB Cream||Glissandra Serum|
|Smooth skin after cosmetic treatments||
|Moisturize the skin||
|Protect from the sun||
|Even skin tone and hide blemishes||
Healthy, young-looking skin is now within reach; we simply need to shift the focus from covering skin to creating naturally beautiful skin at the cellular level; from fighting symptoms to addressing the root cause of skin issues, mitochondrial decay. Before jumping on the BB cream bandwagon, consider how you can achieve real, sustainable results from products that put skin health first.
I had acute sunburn problems on my scalp for a long time, as I am Bald & enjoy exercising outdoor. I used to put on a lot of sun block, but that did not help with the development of redness with an expanded whitish colored skin, sometimes leading to blisters & scars. My skin was so delicate that only a light touch would generate a blister. Also my scalp had developed scalings.Since using the Glissandra serum, my scalp has much improved. To ensure I have maximum protection I always put on an extra layer of serum just before doing sports under the sun (particularly in California where I spend quite a bit of time). I do not have blister problems anymore, and the scarred tissues are healed; even the pigmentation has improved greatly.
Some time ago, we shared some information on protecting your skin from the elements using antioxidants. But as you know, not all antioxidants are created equal.
If you haven’t already heard about glutathione, here’s your quick primer on the extraordinary antioxidant that’s set to make waves in the skincare world in 2012.
Antioxidants as free radical fighters
As the cells in our body perform their everyday functions, they incidentally create free radicals. These byproducts accumulate over time and become progressively more detrimental to our health.
In the context of aging, we know that free radical damage is a significant contributor to unsightly skin issues such as wrinkles, dark under eye circles, and age spots.
This is where antioxidants come in. We can use these powerful molecules to offset the negative effects of free radicals. One way to do this is by consuming a diet that includes antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables – but that’s not the only way, especially since this doesn’t directly target skin cells.
Glutathione: the master antioxidant
Our cells are also able to produce their own antioxidants. Because glutathione is widely considered to be the strongest, it is also known as the “master” antioxidant.
Glutathione detoxifies our body of toxins and pollutants, increases our energy, repairs DNA damage, and optimizes our immune system. Imagine how that power would positively affect our skin, the body’s largest organ.
The body produces glutathione naturally, but certain compounds have been scientifically proven to encourage our cells to produce more of it. This is an important concept to consider in regards to caring for our skin, particularly as we age, since our body accumulates free radicals over time.
Fortunately, there are now products on the market that are able to stimulate the body’s natural glutathione production. When applied directly to the skin, they are an effective way to reverse the signs of skin aging.
The role of glutathione in anti-aging skincare
Glutathione is the powerhouse antioxidant on which other antioxidants depend to function properly. Antioxidants commonly found in anti-aging skincare products, such as Vitamins C and E and CoQ10, are less effective without glutathione.
A recent study published in the scientific journal, Fitoterapia, showed that Schisandrin B increased glutathione production at the cellular level. This means that these powerful compounds are able to help our cells naturally produce more glutathione to attack free radicals.
Schisandrin B is derived from the Schisandra berry, an herb commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Extracts from the Schisandra berry have been proven to be safe and effective in topical cosmetic applications. In over two decades of research and development, Glissandra Skincare has identified and isolated the most potent compounds from the Schisandra berry for use in its advanced anti-aging skincare products.
Keep your skin looking young, healthy, and beautiful
Do your skincare products promote the health of your skin by stimulating skin cells to produce glutathione? Can you find Schisandrin B on the ingredient list of the products you’re currently using? If you’re constantly struggling to fight aging skin, consider how much more effective it would be if your body was able to do more on its own.
Glutathione is changing anti-aging skincare. By taking a holistic, health-focused approach to caring for our skin, beautiful, younger-looking skin is finally within our reach.
