Our Pause® Well-Aging® Line works to target the inevitable physiological skin changes that accompany aging, with a primary focus on the loss of elasticity, collagen and radiance, and excessive dryness.
Think of collagen and elastin as the springs or support that help keep your mattress firm. Fibroblasts within fascia are responsible for collagen and elastin production. Over time, fibroblast activity slows, leading to a reduction of these fibers. With fewer fibers to support the skin, sagging results. Just like when a mattress loses its support, it begins to sag. In addition to sagging, fewer collagen and elastin fibers also result in loss of elasticity and radiance, and excessive dryness.
Our Proprietary Pause Complex – a fusion of six vitamins, antioxidants and peptides that power all our products – is designed to work in combination with the carefully chosen ingredients in each of our formulas to help spark the body’s collagen production while improving and diminishing the visible signs of aging.
Working in combination with mindfully selected ingredients in each of our product formulas, this Complex helps firm, brighten, tighten, tone, and deeply hydrate aging skin.
When used consistently, the Complex improves:
• Collagen loss • Skin elasticity • Sagging skin • Thinner skin (skin density) • Dullness • Luminosity
One of two major forms of vitamin B3 (other is nicotinic acid). Reduces the impact of environmental damage and assists in the skin’s ability to repair past damage including improving the appearance of discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles. Encourages the production of ceramides which form the protective barrier in the skin, thereby making skin more supple and resistant to dryness and skin sensitivities; helps skin hydration.
A trademarked peptide composition comprised of palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7. These two drone or messenger peptides work synergistically to penetrate the deep layers of the skin and activate genes that promote collagen production.
Modified vitamin C molecule that has increased stability. Protects skin from UVB damage. May enhance collagen synthesis. Antioxidant. Anti-inflammatory. May lighten and brighten skin tone by inhibiting over-production of Melanin. Antimicrobial properties help calm rosacea and acne.
An anti-inflammatory. Known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark under-eye circles and sagging neck skin. Has been shown in studies to increase the thickness of dermal and epidermal skin layers and collagen fiber thickness.
A sugar that occurs naturally in all living cells. Only known ingredient to help control skin cell energy and improve cell metabolism to wake-up tired skin
Derived from mushrooms, this antioxidant improves skin’s density and helps protect skin by counteracting free radical damage that can lead to hyperpigmentation.
