The Polyrevitalising Cocktail BCN Revita-HA is a highly moisturizing and revitalizing compound. It contains hyaluronic acid, vitamins, amino acids, minerals and coenzymes. Hyaluronic acid has a hygroscopic action by binding large amounts of water through the creation of water and hydrogen bonds; also helps cell proliferation. Therefore, hyaluronic acid is an essential visco-elastic dermis and epidermis balance item. Vitamin A (retinol) improves flexibility and skin density by regulating keratinisation and healing processes. It also works as dermal antioxidant, destroying free radicals that cause cell and tissue damage.
Vitamin B acts on essential fatty acids metabolism, contributing to biological equilibrium of the skin. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, inhibits localized melanin hyperproduction and collagen synthesis, an important protein that strengthens the structural support and the skin elasticity. Vitamin E acts against free radicals by inhibiting hydrogen peroxide. Amino acids exert an action on protein synthesis by fibroblasts. Cells combine these structural elements - fibroblasts- to form proteins, also known as polypeptides.
Collagen is mainly composed of proline, hydroxyproline and lysine. Elastin is mainly composed of aspartic acid threonine and serine. They all are amino acids. Minerals exert an iconic action on several hundred enzymatic reactions and essential cellular functions. As cofactors, minerals improve the different biological metabolisms; as an exemple, magnesium is involved in 180 enzymatic reactions. The coenzymes, in turn, catalyze the rate of metabolic reaction of the organism, decreasing the amount of energy required for the reactions may occur. Thus, these biochemical activators increase the rate of tissue building.
