Botanical silicone and Oak (skin tightening). Hyaluronic acid (volume and wrinkle filler). Lupine proteins (firming). Beta carotene (tired skin, tissue tone and elasticity). Macerated calendula (healing). Pre-biotic chicory root (replaces bad bacteria with friendly bacterai on the skin). Vitamin E antioxidant (mops up free radicals).
Cascada Skin Food – Fusion 2 is a rich, nourishing moisturiser suitable for for mature, dry, dull and normal skin types and scarring. Made with a Natural active ingredient complex against skin aging with botanical silicon from millet and skin-tautening tannins from oak. It has been specially designed to improve the skin structure. The botanical silicon has high bio-availability thereby promoting the production of the skins structural proteins. The new production of collagen and glucosamine glucans is accelerated and the skin profile is improved from within thereby improving wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.
Tannins from oak have an astringent and tautening effect. As natural complexing agents they neutralise harmful metal ions and protect the skin with their anti-oxidative properties.
Also contains Hyaluronic Acid – Popularly called “The Fountain of Youth”, added for its skin rejuvenation properties. Roots Hyaluronic Acid is made by producing enzymes from a bacteria-based biofermentation process and NOT sourced from poultry (roosters combs), as are many others. It has the ability to absorb up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, so it?s therefore the most efficient humectant moisturiser we have so far.
HA is what gives the skin its volume and fullness. It is one of the chief components of the extracellular skin matrix and it contributes significantly to cell proliferation. Aging can result in the loss of hyaluronic acid, which in turn results in skin that has less volume and the formation of wrinkles and folds. Its hydrating properties result in increased skin smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles. Its rejuvenating properties result in increased skin softness. It also protects the cell structure and defends against external threats and bacterial infections and it exhibits viscous flow, elastic and pseudoplastic properties. This property is unique to HA.
So you can see why it is popularly called “The Fountain of Youth”. By its nature, Hyaluronic Acid retains water like a sponge and has the ability to absorb a thousand times more than its own weight and plays an important role in tissue hydration, lubrication and cellular function. In short, it is the most excellent skin moisturiser to date. When the body cannot produce enough of coenzyme Q10 on its own anymore, then low molecular weight hyaluronic acid can penetrate through the skin to reestablish the hyaluronic acid content to more youthful levels. Alex Schauss, Ph.D., Director of Natural and Medicinal Products Research at AIBMR Life Sciences, explained that aging causes variations in natural hyaluronic acid concentrations in the skin. He points out that enhanced hyaluronic acid levels seem to increase collagen production.
