Enzyme-fueled Rejuvenating Treatment to Mimic Photo-facials

Artistry Intensive Skincare 14-night Restore Program
Amway has added an at-home treatment to its Artistry brand that aims to mimick the benefits of a professional photo-facial treatment with the enzyme UV-endonuclease encapsulated in a liposome delivery system. Artistry Intensive Skincare 14-night Restore Program is a system designed to provide clarity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and impart healthy glow.
The treatment contains the company's Deep Night Action 7 Complex, which provides seven levels of restoration, including: boosting the skin’s ability to repair signs of damage caused by environmental assaults; impoving visible fine lines; soothing damaged skin; restoring brightness and improving skin clarity; maintaining and reviving skin’s natural moisture barrier; increasing skin cell turnover; and protecting skin from environmental insults.
This complex is comprised of Ultrasomes, a restorative enzyme encapsulated in a liposome delivery system that helps boost skin’s ability to repair signs of damage caused by environmental assaults. These patented liposomes deliver UV-endonuclease to the skin, which is shown to help repair skin cells and encourage recovery from sun damage to the skin, halting the gradual weakening that causes photo-aging. This bioengineered enzyme, and key component of Ultrasomes, is based on the natural recovery process found in marine algae. UV-endonuclease mimics algae's ability to flourish in harsh conditions and intense UV radiation. The Deep Night Action 7 Complex also contains the company's Soothing System to calm the skin and minimize the risk of skin irritation.
In addition to the aforementioned complex, the treatment also contains sunflower and Alpinia Speciosa to promote firmness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sunflower also protects skin from environmental assaults to help prevent the signs of aging damage to skin. Licorice soothes damaged skin. Skin is less irritated, less red, more toned, and healthy looking. Lemon and cucumber improve clarity and restore brightness. Rosemary helps repair and maintain skin’s natural moisture barrier for more moisturized skin. Oats Increases skin cell turnover with neutral pH exfoliation for smooth skin.
