TianDe – Zhenfei Perfect Line
TianDe – Zhenfei Perfect Line
The TianDe Zhenfei Perfect Line contains a white lotus extract. White lotus flower – both flowers and fruit of this unique plant have medicinal properties. It has exceptional antioxidant and soothing properties. It is also anti-inflammatory, refreshing, relaxing and toning. Prevents damage to the cells by free radicals, soothes sensitive skin prone to irritation and inflammation. Restores the damaged skin barrier and stimulates cell renewal.
Lotus was known in China for several thousand years before our era. All parts of the plant are commonly used in Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Arabic and Tibetan medicine. Lotus leafs and flowers contain flavonoids (quercetin, rutin), alkaloids, palmitic acid and peptides.
Quercetin is slowing down the ageing process, particularly when combined with vitamin C. Supports the immune system and leads to increasing the amount of mitochondria (energy centers or cells) in the muscles and the brain.
Alkaloids, a group of naturally occurring basic compounds originally found in vegetables, contain nitrogen. Alkaloids stimulate the immunity powerfully.
Palmitic acid (oleic acid, present in fats, it is also the main component of olive oil and fish oil). Palmitic acid is one of the most common in nature, fatty acids – the perfect anti-aging ingredient of cosmetics.
Peptides are usually called Bio-mimetic peptides (”peptidomimetics”) in cosmetics, and have substances that faithfully mimic the mechanism of action and effects of the natural counterparts. There was also a concept of ‘smart peptides’ (”IQ peptides”), which specifies the peptides with an attached chain of fatty acid (e.g. palmitic acid), so that the drug penetrates the skin better and reaches the destination more easily. Cosmetic peptides stimulate the natural physiological processes in the skin, are active at low concentrations and meet global requirements for cosmetic components, such as their excellent chemical and microbiological purity and guaranteed stability. An additional advantage is the small size of their particles, which helps the peptides overcome barriers of the skin and there is no need to lock them in transdermal carriers.
The TianDe Zhenfei Perfect Line also contains sea algae extract, hyaluronic acid, Shea butter and jojoba oil. These ingredients gently moisturize and nourish the skin, prevent the development of rosacea, have a clear antioxidant activity, stimulate collagen and increase skin elasticity. They also protect against negative environmental influences. All components are responsible for the lipid and acid-based balance of the skin.
Shea butter is used mainly for skin care, because of its protective and softening properties. It protects the skin against UV rays. It can be used for massage, as a body lotion, as a moisturizer in soaps and shaving creams and also as a healing agent to minor cuts and skin irritation.
Jojoba, and jojoba oil is a liquid wax originating from Mexico.
It is used in cosmetics, because the base oil content of high cetyl palmitate and squalene is a natural component of the lipid mantle of our skin. One of the problems we have to deal with our skin is epidermal water loss. Since the water content depends on the condition of our skin – if there is enough it becomes hydrated and smooth, and when it starts to loose water it starts sagging. Jojoba oil reduces this factor and reinforces the intercellular barrier. It is very well absorbed and does not leave the skin looking greasy.
