No anti-aging skincare routine is complete without antioxidant protection. To achieve dramatic clinically-proven results from many of our medical-grade products, Cosmedical Technologies relies on one ingredient in particular: powerful antioxidant Lipochroman®.
Lipochroman® is unrivaled by anything else on the market today. Unlike most antioxidants, this cutting-edge synthetic molecule has dual scavenging properties, capturing both oxygen free radicals (ROS) and nitrogen free radicals (RNS) to prevent the appearance of premature skin aging. Incredibly, studies are showing this ingredient has a triple protective effect — new assays recently demonstrated Lipochroman® is effective at capturing carbon free radicals (RCS).
- Neutralizes 3 classes of free radicals: ROS, RNS, and RCS
- Shields against UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental damage
- Helps prevent irreversible damage to skin’s DNA, lipids, and cellular proteins
- More effective antioxidant action than other popular antioxidant ingredients
- Excellent long-term stability
Backed by science
In cellular level studies, Lipochroman®:
- Increased cell viability by as much as 173% compared to vitamin E, reservatrol, and ferulic acid
- Protected skin from 99.3% of DNA damage caused by photoactivated pyrene, one of the most prevalent and harmful air pollutants which produces genotoxic free radicals
In mollecular level studies, Lipochroman®:
- Demonstrated markedly higher antioxidant power when compared to vitamin C, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, rosemary extract, grape seed extract, tea extract, green tea, honeybush extract, sage extract, and taxifolin
- Showed 32-47x greater antioxidative power compared to BHT after being stored at room temperature for 3 months
In clinical tests, Lipochroman®:
- Increased antioxidative capacity of the skin by 21.3% after two weeks and by 36.7% after 4 weeks.
