Uniquely delivering molecular oxygen (without the use and
free radical effects of hydrogen peroxide) and providing a synergistic blend
of skin nutrients in a mousse-like emulsion to encourage skin repair and
renewal - resulting in a skin complexion showing finer texture, greater
clarity and an overall more youthful appearance.
Technologically advanced and patented, O2Beta
was developed in response to the craze and rave over oxygen spas/bars where
hopeful participants had their faces sprayed with oxygen gas in an attempt
to deliver oxygen to the skin, while others used hydrogen peroxide. There
is no efficacy in spraying oxygen over the face in less than hyperbaric
(pressurized) conditions. Hydrogen peroxide by its very chemical compound
reacts to release oxygen, but with the side effect of forming damaging free
O2Beta was developed with a unique technology that
delivers molecular oxygen stabilized in a light foam mousse facial cream
containing the precious and safe ingredients recommended by scientific/medical
research such as betaglucan, CoQ10, Tocopherol [the pure form of Vitamin
E, rather than the less expensive, less safe vitamin E/Tocopherol acetate
which almost all other cosmetics use], Acetyl L-Carnitine, Green Tea Extract,
Superoxide Dismutase and Alpha Lipoic Acid. This proprietary formula of
delicately combined synergistic ingredients is aimed at nourishing the skin
to encourage skin repair and renewal.
Why Oxygen? The levels of oxygen in skin cells and the respiratory
activity in these cells decrease as we age. The efficiency with which aged
skin cells are able to utilize oxygen, may be reduced, as indicated by their
decreased rate of metabolism and repair processes, such as collagen synthesis,
compared to young skin cells. The oxygen in O2Beta aims to increase the
amount of oxygen available to the skin's environment.
Universal Biologics has developed O2Beta as the focus of its
skin care line, Line D. O2Beta embodies the revolutionary approach of encouraging
the skin's own natural ability to repair, moisturize and rejuvenate itself.
By increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the skin through a synergistic
blend of precious skin nutrients, O2Beta uniquely enhances the skin's bio-environment
and stimulates the skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines, age spots,
wrinkles, and other minor imperfections.
It has been disclosed in research that the amount of oxygen
on aged skin is the same as that of young skin. It is our theory that just
as a young person is more readily inclined to aerobicize their bodies than
an elderly person, so is young skin more able to utilize the oxygen than
older skin. The additional oxygen in O2Beta is aimed at activating the skin
cells, while the other ingredients maintain the activation and encourage
the nourishment, in essence "aerobicizing" the skin.
Molecular oxygen applied to the skin, as in the case of certain
health spas, which physically spray oxygen over the faces of hopeful believers,
is at best a long shot. Traditional hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment,
usually reserved for burn victims, applies pure molecular oxygen under pressure
greater than one atmosphere. The measure "one atmosphere" is the oxygen
environment in which we live.
Clinical studies have demonstrated significant improvement
in deterring premature aging of the skin by enhancing the respiratory activity
within the skin cells after the application of this new treatment. Oxygen
is one of the elements vital to the health and life of skin cells, regardless
of your skin type or age. O2Beta holds molecular oxygen next to the skin,
encouraging absorption directly into damaged cells with the objective of
diminishing the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles.
O2Beta Molecular Oxygen Suspension Facial Treatment holds
molecular oxygen in an emulsion of ingredients which have been researched
to function in collagen synthesis, cell metabolism and mitochondria support.
The key ingredients, Acetyl L-Carnitine,
Alpha Lipoic Acid, Beta Glucan, Coenzyme
Q10 (Ubiquinone), a protective form of Vitamin E and
Green Tea Extract, are uniquely combined to create a barrier
as well as a stimulant for oxygen to be absorbed into or penetrate the skin.
(an acetylated ester of the amino acid L-Carnitine) is used by the body
to transport fats into the mitochondria where they can be metabolized to
produce energy in the cells. Studies suggest that ALC may be an important
anti-aging complex, although traditionally taken orally.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (Thioctic
Acid) has been claimed in research as the missing link in the theory of
recycling antioxidants to neutralize free radicals. "Not only is ALA a powerful
antioxidant in its own right, but it also regenerates glutathione [which
recycles semiascorbic acid - Vitamin C free radical], giving cells a double
dose of antioxidant protection. [Furthermore], once inside cells, ALA is
converted to its most potent form, dihydrolipoic acid, an even more potent
free radical neutralizer than ALA."
(yeast cell wall extract) "is a glucose type molecule that travels freely
through the network of dendritic cells (e.g. Langerhans cells and melanocytes)
which are present in both the epidermis and dermis." Researchers have observed
a positive correlation between glucan phosphate treatment, wound tensile
strength and collagen biosynthesis.
Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone)
is an essential component of the mitochondria, the energy producing unit
of the cells of our body. Known as ubiquinone because it exists in every
plant and animal cell, CoQ10's ubiquitous existence is necessary for the
human body to function. Categorized as an antioxidant and compared to Vitamin
E, it aids in circulation, stimulates the immune system, increases tissue
oxygenation and has vital anti-aging effects. Researchers have found that
it penetrates skin when suspended in oil and improves skin texture.
Green Tea, as
an antioxidant, has been claimed in research that it (specifically the polyphenols
present therein) may be useful against inflammatory responses associated
with the exposure of skin to solar radiation.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
is recognized as an antioxidant that supports the formation of red blood
cells, muscle and other tissues. It also protects fat in the body's tissues
from abnormal breakdown thus, retard aging. Research claims that it is the
major naturally occurring lipid-soluble non-enzymatic antioxidant protecting
skin from the adverse effects of oxidative stress including photoaging.
