Fish collagen excellently builds into the skin replenishing the deficiencies and stimulating the production of this proteins in cells. It is biologically active and its chemical structure is identical to human collagen.It means that the body does not reject it and allergic reactions are very rare. Bovine collagen is also used as a cosmetic component and a wrinkle reductor.But the bovine collagen is a protein with a destroyed cellular structure and it is not biologically active, so it can't be built into human skin. Moreover, it's chemical structure is signifficantly different from human collagen which makes it far less effective than fish collagen.Collagen is a protein which will break down in the presence of acids contained in tonics and other skin cleansers.

hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronan (hyaluronic acid or hyaluronate or HA) is an anionic, nonsulfated glycosaminoglycan distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. It is also know as Restylane as a trade name. It is unique among glycosaminoglycans in that it is nonsulfated, forms in the plasma membrane instead of the Golgi, and can be very large, with its molecular weight often reaching the millions. Microcurrent and sonophoresis only marginally push this product into the skin due to large molecular weight. *Helps skin absorb 150 times its weight in water. VERY effective with neck wrinkles and for reducing acne scars.

***Occlude with serum not hyaluronic acid (due to large molecular size) Vitamin B & C work well as does Aloe Vera. Four essential oils (rosemary, ylang ylang, lilacin, and peppermint oils), and three plant oils (jojoba oil, corn germ oil, and olive oil) work well as primary layers in occlusion facials.

*** Also known as "Immersion Facial"

Occlusion facials use the process of osmosis. Osmosis is the "spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a partially permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides."
