Product Description & Benefits:
Strontium (Sr) is an element located below Calcium in the Periodic Table of the Elements. The similarity of the strontium divalent ion to calcium in charge and size allows strontium to compete with calcium for binding to receptors and allows it to pass through voltage dependent calcium channels. Calcium is involved in many varied cellular processes, but its involvement in muscle contraction is the one that may be responsible for the effect of Celestite Primer on aging skin: after less than a minute of application, microscopy shows that epidermal ridges become less noticeable. Macroscopically, the skin looks smoother and fuller. The effect of Celestite on the skin is temporary, and after a few hours the skin goes back to its original state. This short-term, Cinderella-type effect, should be seen as an advantage. Although the long term effect of botulinum toxin (botox) makes it a favorite among baby-boomers that want to look more youthful, there is a very low but distinct possibility of permanent damage to the nerves and muscles. Conversely, Celestite's effect is temporary and safe. The use of strontium taken orally to help with osteoporosis has led to extensive toxicity studies and it has been found that even for long term use, toxicity is not a problem. In addition, the capacity of strontium ions to ""displace"" calcium maybe responsible for the analgesic effect of strontium, an effect taken advantage of in products like dentifrices and arthritic pain. Calcium is thought to play a role in the pain process by regulating the release of the chemicals that nerve cells use to communicate, and strontium would compete with calcium, effectively hindering entrance of calcium into the nerve cell.
