Livana Skin Care is a new company that uses some of the most powerful ingredients in the marketplace for their anti-aging cream. The Livana Bio-Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Mulitpeptide Face Cream consists of peptides, snail serum and protein rich luxe caviar. This cream is for any skin tone and is perfect for those wishing to arrest the ravages of time and sun damage. Livana wishes to create a cream that is affordable, keeps skin looking beautiful and is unique to the marketplace.
The six most potent peptides available are in this anti-aging wonder cream. Peptides are molecular links of amino acids that help your skin to produce collagen. Collagen is essential in that it helps the skin look smooth and wrinkle free. The cream also contains glycolic acid which helps get rid of dead skin cells, allowing for a smooth complexion. Allantion reduces the appearance of scars on the skin, collagen and elastin help to rejuvenate the skin. Protein is there to soften the skin, Vitamin E helps to protect against free radicals. Jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil maintain balance in the skin’s sebum production. Hyaluronic acid and squalane bring moisture to the skin.
Snail secretion is a new ingredient on the market that I have seen in several creams and is a hot commodity in anti-aging creams right now. Livana gets the secretion in a humane way that does not harm the snails. The secretion, called CAS, which stands for "Cryptomphalus Aspersa Secretion”, is a natural serum that is derived from living snails. It has been known to harness the power of human growth factor to deliver excellent skin rejuvenation.
A European scientist discovered a way to extract the mucus and caviar from the snails that allows for a 100% pure extract with no preservatives. The serum is extracted from the snails via a eco-friendly process without any chemicals. Once it is collected the secretion and the caviar are purified and tested to make sure they are free of any agents that could affect the purity of the cream. Around 95% if the extract is used in the final product. The snails are then returned to live out their lives in a biologically pure region. The mucus contains molecules that have powerful proteins, amino complex, antimicrobial peptides, and trace elements (copper, zinc, calcium and iron). These compounds promote the natural healing process of the skin, enhances the skin’s ability to recover and produces antimicrobials that fight off infections. Snail mucus also has the ability to retain moisture which allows skin to maintain its density while feeling smooth and taut. The caviar is fully absorbed by the skin, it evens the skin tone and stimulates the cell’s metabolism to promote elasticity. It also helps to stimulate cells to maintain moisture, regulate pH balance, control oiliness and minimize pore size. Livana’s approach to skincare assures that their product will not cause any peeling of the skin or any feeling of greasiness.
Livana Bio-Rejuvenating Anti-Aging Mulitpeptide Face Cream is the first one on the market that combines six of the most potent peptides currently available with the natural delivery system of snail secretion and white caviar. There are no parabens, color additives or fragrance in the cream. It goes through microbial product testing, microbial ingredient testing and long term clinical product testing to make sure the natural ingredients are safe for use. This cream has had years of research and development.
I used this cream for a month. I always like to give products at least that long to see results. What I liked most about it is that it really softens the skin and helps with its moisturization capabilities. My skin had been abnormally dry for summer (I’m getting older and there is not as much sebum production to keep my skin as hydrated). So, this cream did help keep it more hydrated. It has all the right ingredients for that, as well as an AHA to help get rid of extraneous dead skin without dehydrating it. The peptides in this product also are great at helping the skin produce collagen and elastin, which are essential to keep away the fine lines and wrinkles. The snail secretion and caviar present are hot right now in skincare products and you will see them in many products from the Asian skincare lines. This is the first time I have seen it in the American marketplace. I think that snail secretion will soon be all over American products as the new “it” ingredient. For me, it remains to be seen if it really does work as a major player in skin rejuvenation but I do agree that this product helped my skin to look and feel great. I am very happy about that.
