Pharmacological Action

Collagen is a fibrous protein found in the dermis of the skin and plays an important role in the structure of the skin. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammatory markers and to have antioxidant effects which assist in maintaining healthy skin. Tocotrienols and astaxanthin are antioxidants that seems to help protect against the damage caused by ultraviolet light by possibly improving recovery. Biotin is a carboxylate cofactor and plays a role in epidermal differentiation. Silicon supports the natural production of collagen in the skin. Vitamin A is converted to retinoic acid in the skin. Retinoic acid regulates the expression of various genes that encode for structural proteins, such as keratin in the skin. Zinc plays a role in sebum production which is important in maintaining a healthy skin.
