Where Is This Active Ingredient Found? L-Carnosine is the active ingredient in the Beta Alistine skin care line.
Product Description & Benefits:
This natural peptide also has a relatively new trade name, Beta Alistineâ„¢, but research into its beneficial effects on healing go back to the 1980s. Carnosine accelerates and improves healing. It also prevents cross-linking of collagen and other proteins in the dermis, one of the causes of wrinkles and loss of elasticity brought about by aging and exposure to UV (sunlight). Carnosine is also an antioxidant and seems to improve the immune response.
This skin care active ingredient is made by a licensed, high-quality laboratory of skin care ingredients. Make Me Heal has partnered with leading laboratories and manufacturers of skin care ingredients to come up with the largest assortment of high-quality active ingredients that are effective for your skin. These ingredients are backed by scientific research and testing.
What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
