BIO-MAPLE™ COMPOUND is our unique and distinct pure compound derived from the sap of the maple tree. It acts as a hydrating carrier that allows additional active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin. Packed with naturally occurring antioxidents, minerals and alpha hydroxy acids, this revolutionary ingredient rehydrates, gently exfoliates, and creates a protective barrier on the skin. Present in all of our formulations, Bio-Maple™ compound acts as a buffer to active ingredients allowing our formulations to be aggressive and effective without ever drying out the skin.
What is it?
A complex physiological humectant which contains mono and polysaccharides, amino peptides, vegetable hormones, anti-oxidant and anti-aging phenolic compounds and minerals.
Where does it come from?
Purified sap from Canadian Acer Saccharum Maple Trees.
What does it do?
Physiologically counters the process of moisture loss due to both environmental and chronological damage of the stratum corneum (protective barrier of the skin). It rehydrates skin by (1) absorbing and storing moisture from the environment (hygroscopic action); and (2) lifting water from the inner layers of the epidermis to the top layers (osmotic action).
Pure AHAs (exfoliating) and anti-oxidants (anti-aging) are infused into the stratum corneum to help speed up the rate at which old, tired skin cells are shed, and thus combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Protects the skin due to its natural pH being similar to that of skin itself. By maintaining the skin’s natural pH, it safeguards against germs (micro-organisms) that are constantly trying to invade and cause skin blemishes and irritations.
What are the benefits?
Increased hydration and skin plumpness.
Increased smoothness and elasticity.
Increased suppleness, softness and resiliency.
Increased turnover of new cells and enhanced luminosity.
Visibly diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The small molecular size allows for excellent penetration into the epidermis to maximize results.
