New Anti-Glycation Products

Glycation happens when sugar and the environmental overload accelerates ageing in our skin?

  

in 2007 at the Fox Chase Research Center, a ground-breaking treatment to reduce the signs of aging was the last thing the Dynamis Diabetes research team was expecting. But, scientific serendipity struck while they were seeking a way to prevent glycation, a cause of diabetic complications such as blindness and nerve damage. Glycation occurs when sugars in the body react with (and damage) proteins. One of the worst results is the creation of 3-deoxyglucosone (3DG), which is responsible for much of the damage.

Most often 3DG gets sweated out of the skin but some remains behind and overtime, and causes skin damage.

Laboratory research demonstrates that 3DG is present in skin and causes:

  • inflammation
  • decreased production of collagen
  • collagen and elastin cross-linking
  • formation of Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs)
  • oxidative stress and free radicals

But glycation is not limited to diabetics — it happens in everyone's body and is in skin! The resulting glycated proteins tend to fuse together in a process called cross-linking causing a loss of elasticity and hardening of collagen in the skin. 

The older we get, and the more sugars we consume, the more glycation damages our skin.

Dynamis scientists had a breakthrough: They found a compound that slows the production of 3DG. The formula worked — but in the process, they discovered an unintended benefit. The skin of subjects using the compound was smoother and softer, with improved elasticity. Subjects also noticed a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Now, Dynamis Skin Science brings its discovery out of the laboratory with MEG21 — a unique skin treatment that delivers the compound Supplamine® deep into the skin to reduce inflammation and free radicals, allow normal collagen production and reverse cross-linking.

The following diagram is shows some components of the glycation process in the cell including the formation of A.G.E's (Advanced Glycation End products).

Clinic Testamonials ~ USA

As one of the first salon/spas to use MEG 21, we knew we had a retail "winner" from day one. All of our clients were given samples and nine out of ten came back to purchase.

Pluses:

  • Skin feels immediately hydrated, smooth and supple
  • Lines are noticeably diminished in one week's time
  • Uses include eye créme and face créme
  • Men and women can use the same crème
  • People trust the product because of its association with Fox Chase

Our motto for MEG 21 is "Use it or Lose It"

Thanks for giving us this amazing product!

I have to say that MEG 21 has been carrying my business. Eighty percent of my sales in skincare have been MEG 21. Because of the volume, I have actually phased out many of the other products that I have been carrying for the last five years. We cannot keep it on the shelf. The minute we stock MEG 21, within days it is practically gone.

My biggest selling point: It is an eye cream, day cream and night cream. What you can count on with MEG 21 is Simplicity and Results.

Here are some of my client's typical comments after they have used one jar:

One of my client's sisters lives in London and had not seen her for three months. When the sister visited the US, the first thing she asked my client, with great excitement "you look incredible, did you get Botox?"

A handful of my clients say "I am addicted to this stuff — please tell me you have it in?"

"I love it! It works, especially under my eyes"

"My make-up never went on so smooth and lasts as long as it does"

"I like the consistency and the way it goes on"

"At first I thought it was too heavy but after a few minutes it totally absorbed into the skin. I felt hydrated all day especially at the office since I am in enclosed environments and no windows."

"It's very smooth and not greasy — it leaves no residue. I used to use another high-end cream before MEG 21 and every time I went to the chiropractor and put my face down on the bed, when I got up I would be embarrassed with the face print it would leave behind. Not anymore!

There is a multitude of products available on the market with similar claims. MEG 21 is one of the few products that delivers what it claims and has the research available to stand behind them. Once the product is used regularly the promised results are visibly apparent. And that is better than any research claim.

Bravo to you Dynamis.
