Emblica
Used for centuries in Aryuvedic Medicine. Studies have shown Emblica to possess powerful, broad-spectrum antioxidant and skin lightening properties. In addition, Emblica is extremely stable and is not subject to photo-degradation. While most skin lighteners have toxicity issues or can cause negative reactions on the skin, Emblica is well tolerated without any known negative side effects.
Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis)
Powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidative damage to the skin. Numerous studies have shown the many benefits of Green Tea on human skin & it’s photo-protective effects:
• It inhibits erythema evoked by UV radiation
• Reduces DNA damage after UV radiation
• Green Tea also has potent anti-inflammatory benefits
Bisabolol
Is the naturally occurring main active component of chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla), which has been used in traditional medicine in Europe for hundreds of years. Bisabolol provides anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, antibacterial and anti-mycotic benefits. It is perfectly suited for sensitive skin and skin recuperating from procedures such as surgeries, laser, IPL, microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Cucumber Extract
An extract with skin tightening properties and anti-inflammatory actions that has a refreshing, firming effect on the skin. Cucumber Extract is known for its emollient and soothing properties. It contains high amounts of amino acids and organic acids that are beneficial to the skin’s acid mantle. Cucumber Extract removes impurities, reduces oiliness, refines and diminishes the appearance of pores, making it beneficial for normal as well as oily or acne skin types.
Vitamin C
Clinical studies show that topical application of certain antioxidants, such as Vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid can help prevent photo-aging in skin and provides many other essential benefits to the skin such as protecting against UV light radiation, stimulating collagen production, improving skin tone and elasticity, helping control inflammation, promoting wound healing, reducing erythema (redness) and helping protect against UV light induced immunosuppression.
Aloe Vera
Has been proven to counteract wrinkling and scarring of the skin. It is beneficial on burned, sunburned, environmentally exposed skin and also after laser treatments, microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Scientific studies show that it stimulates cellular regeneration and that it has astringent, emollient, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide
Originally used in wound healing, researchers have found it stimulates synthesis of key components of the skin matrix: collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans. Recent studies demonstrate it to be one of the most effective cosmetic ingredients for reducing fine lines and wrinkles associated with photo-aged skin.

QSS Keratin Hydrating Gel (Oil Free)
QSS Keratin Hydrating Gel (Oil Free) Image

Quintessence® Keratin Hydrating Gel is  light, oil-free and easily absorbed formula containing a patented natural bioactive keratin, which has scientifically demonstrated capabilities of both improving the appearance of skin aging and also protecting the skin against future damage. The majority of other keratin products offered in today’s skincare market are no longer bioactive or particularly functional. Instead, they have been “denaturalized” through a large scale industrial rendering process, which applies both high temperature and acid to undesirable animal origin by-products and renders these keratins inactive to the human body. By comparison, the main ingredient in Keratin Hydrating Gel involves a patented process, using the gentle method of keratin solublization performed on a natural high quality raw material, from a renewable natural source.

Quintessence® Keratin Hydrating Gel is appropriate for all skin types, including acne/oily skin and sensitive skin types.

Product Benefits:

  • Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  •  Promotes Hydration, Firmness and Elasticity in Skin
  • Reduces Redness Associated with Inflammation or Sensitive Skin
  • Improves the Brightness and Radiance of the Skin

Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles.
Scientific data indicates that the Functionalized Keratin in the Quintessence® Keratin Hydrating Gel promotes the proliferation of skin cells. It Contains zinc protein complexes in low concentrations that are useful for both repair and maintenance of the skin. It also contains copper protein complexes in low concentrations that play a fundamental role in skin health, by helping restore the skin's ability to repair itself. Both zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu), once bound to a protein, have been shown to be very effective in regenerating new tissue and increasing the synthesis of structural proteins such as collagen.
figure 1

Hydration of Skin
Capacitance measurements were taken from the three zones of nine volunteers with dry skin. The results were averaged for all the volunteers and the percentage change from the basal value calculated for each zone. The percentage change of the base cream and functional keratin values were normalized with respect to the control values.

  • Sustained improvement in moisture retention of 14% over 18 days.
    ·         Sustained improvement in elasticity of 42% over 18 days.
    ·         Rapid improvement in moisture retention of 27% and 22% over 2.5 and 24 hours respectively.

Reduces Redness Associated With Inflammation or Sensitive Skin
The Functionalized Keratin in the Quintessence® Keratin Hydrating Gel blocks PGE2 production, the major biochemical pathway leading to inflammation and redness in the skin. If left unchecked, over time, this inflammation will lead to a further breakdown of important structural protein in skin

Improves the Brightness and Radiance of the Skin
The Functionalized Keratin in the Quintessence® Keratin Hydrating Gel  promotes the body’s own natural antioxidant activity. It contains highly potent antioxidants. Unlike most antioxidants that require one molecule of antioxidant to be sacrificed for every free radical, contain highly potent antioxidants. Unlike most antioxidants that require one molecule of antioxidant to be sacrificed for every free radical,  it is a new concept of enzymatic antioxidant and one molecule of these powerful  enzymatic antioxidants can quench millions of free radicals. Oxidative stress from UV exposure and other environmental pollutants can cause the production of melanogenesis (the production of brown color pigments associated with tanned skin). Use of topical antioxidants can slow or even reverse this process creating a brightening effect for skin.

Ingredients/Ingredientes (INCI):  Aqua (Water), Keratin and Hydrolysed Keratin, Hyaluronic Acid, Soluble Collagen, Allantoin, Glycerin, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glycol.

QSS Skin Brightener (Lightener)
QSS Skin Brightener (Lightener) Image

Quintessence® Skin Brightener is a light, easily absorbed cream designed as an alternative to high strength hydroquinone formulations for improving the appearance of facial and hand pigmentation. It can be used for long term face and hand brightening as well as for evening out skin tone. It also possesses excellent moisturizing and antioxidant properties. Quintessence® Skin Brightener is appropriate for all skin types.

PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES:

  • Gradual, uniform lightening

·        Excellent for assisting in the prevention pigmentation problems after Laser, IPL and chemical peel treatments

  • Extremely low cytotoxicity allowing it to be used over extended periods of time (i.e., years)

·        Excellent moisturizer and humectant properties

  • High tyrosinase inhibitor levels

KEY INGREDIENTS:

PHENYLETHYL RESORCINOL): Potent skin lightener and anti-oxidant that is non-irritating with extremely low cytotoxicity. Studies demonstrate it has in vitro anti-oxidant efficacy equivalent to Alpha Tocopherol (Vit. E). Effectiveness Study conducted on 12 Asian subjects (skin type III) showed 0.5% Phenylethyl Resorcinal more effective than 1.0% Kojic Acid.

METHYL DIHYDROXYBENZOATE (Methyl Gentisate): Effective enzyme inhibitor (1), extremely low cytotoxicity levels with gradual, uniform lightening abilities and may be used over long periods of time without any negative side effects.

Myristoyl Pentapeptide-9: Propietary Lipopeptide that provides anti-wrinkle benefits, while both brightening and helping give the skin a more even tone.

LICORICE EXTRACT (Glycyrrhiza Glabra): Glabridin is the main tyrosinase inhibitor found in licorice. It inhibits tyrosinase activity without affecting DNA synthesis.  Clinical testing proved that glabridin lowered the activities of T1 and T3 tyrosinase isozymes.  Further testing proved that glabridin also possesses anti-inflammatory effects in-vitro (Yolata T., Nishio H., Kubota, et al:) (2).

ARBUTIN:  Naturally found in the leaves of pear trees and certain herbs, Arbutin reverses rather than suppresses tyrosinase activity. It functions as a melanogenesis inhibitor to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and is an effective antioxidant and skin conditioner.

Ingredients/Ingredientes (INCI):   Aqua (water), Butyelne Glycol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Arbutin, Phenylethyl Resorcinol(SymWhite®377), Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Dimethicone, Methyl Dihydroxybenzoate (Methyl Gentisate), Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Behenoxy Dimethicone, Behenyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Behenyl Methosulfate, Morus Alba (Leaf) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Extract, Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi (Leaf) Extract, Scutellaria Extract, Betaglucan, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Carboxymethyl Betaglucan, Tocopheryl Acetate, Palmitoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Myristoyl Pentapeptide-9, Caprylyl Glycine.

Q-Strixin Facial Micro-Active Emulsion
Q-Strixin Facial Micro-Active Emulsion Image
Q-Strixin Facial Formula possesses the same key potent ingredients as the original Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion in a lighter moisturizing base that may be used on more delicate, fragile or sensitive skin types. It has also been reinforced with a third peptide called Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 , the wrinkle relaxing or so called botox like peptide that further aides in skin tightening.

Q-Strixin Facial Formula quickly penetrates the skin helping stimulate and support cell renewal. It helps improve facial skin tone and texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves the appearance of discoloration associated with sun damaged skin. Your skin will have a smoother, more youthful appearance. Q-Strixin Facial Formula may be applied in the morning before make-up or sunscreen and again at nighttime for added anti-aging benefits.

Key Ingredients

Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 , the wrinkle relaxing or so called botox like peptide that further aides in skin tightening. It consists of a chain of 6 amino acids attached to the acetic acid residue. It is believed to work by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters. Some studies indicate Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 relaxes facial tension, leading to the reduction in facial lines and wrinkles with regular use. (These were in vitro studies showing inhibition of formation of SNAP-25). This remotely resembles the effect of Botox, which reduces facial tension and movement by paralyzing facial muscles.

Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 and Palmitoyl Oligopeptide are known to stimulate cell growth, reduce the depth, length and volume of wrinkles, increase skin thickness, decrease overall skin roughness, help correct discoloration and repair sun damaged skin.

Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, originally used in wound healing, this ingredient consists of a group of amino acids linked together and attached to a fatty acid structurally related to the precursors of collagen type 1. Researchers have found that when added to a culture of skin cells, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 stimulates the synthesis of the key constituents of the skin matrix: collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans. Clinical studies have shown a dramatic improvement in skin smoothness and decreased wrinkle depth in test subjects. A four-month study comparing Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 to Retinol, showed the peptide yielded similar dermal thickening as the Retinol, but without any negative side effects.

Palmitoyl Oligopeptide is a synthetic protein, made up of a fragment of collagen and palmitic acid. The palmitic acid is used to make collagen more lipophillic, making it more compatible with the human skin. Developed through intensive research, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide was the result of an effort to create a substance that would act like retinoic acid without the negative characteristics and irritation.

Emblica

This is the trade name for the extract from the tannin-rich root Phyllanthus Emblica, which has been used for centuries in Aryuvedic Medicine. Studies have shown Emblica to possess powerful, broad-spectrum antioxidant properties. In addition, Emblica is extremely stable and is not subject to photodegradation. One of Emblica’s most exciting applications is as a skin lightener. While most skin lighteners have toxicity issues or can cause negative reactions on the skin, Emblica is well tolerated without any known negative side effects.

Siegesbeckia Orientalis Extract

This ingredient has been shown to be beneficial in restructuring the collagen matrix, aiding in wound healing and tissue regeneration. This helps to normalize the appearance of scars and stretch marks while restoring elasticity to the skin. Clinical studies on its application for stretch marks show a 52% decrease in length and indentations, a 12.9% decrease in depth, and a 13.7% increase in smoothness, texture, color and tone.

Directions for Facial Rejuvenation: For use on the face to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, also improving skin tone and fitness. Apply a small amount of Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion to the targeted areas once in the morning and again before bedtime. It may be used up to three times a day for faster results. Gently massage into the skin using circular motions until it is fully absorbed. Apply prior to makeup, moisturizer or sunscreen. Continue to use twice daily for a minimum of 8 weeks. For continued maintenance use once daily after you achieve desired results.

Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion (6oz Tube)
Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion (6oz Tube) Image
Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion (6oz Tube) is a new generation anti-aging formulation that restores, rejuvenates and revitalizes photo-aged skin. Photo-aging occurs when the underlying collagen and elastin support breaks down from continued exposure to the sun, cigarette smoke and pollution. This results in the skins’ foundation becoming, wrinkled and hyperpigmented. The superior benefits and results obtained with Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion are due to its highly specialized ingredients.

For continued maintenance use once daily after you achieve desired results.

What About Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks (Striae) develop when the skin is excessively pulled, damaging the collagen fibers and proteins within the deepest layers of the skin called the dermis. This is most often due to excessive weight gain. These resulting stretch marks become thick, visible, unsightly scars.

As a result of using Q-Srixin Micro-Active Emulsion for several weeks you should notice the indentations associated with stretch marks appear smoother while the discoloration begins to blend with your natural skin tone making the stretch marks much less visible.

Directions for improving the appearance of stretch marks:
Cleanse and dry the area to be treated. Apply Q-Strixin Micro-Active Emulsion in the morning and evening before bedtime. It may be used up to three times a day for faster results. Massage cream into the skin with circular motions until it is fully absorbed.
