They are chains of amino acid monomers linked together by peptide bonds. They are separated into oligopeptides (2 to 10 amino acids) and polypeptides (10 to 100 amino acids).
Peptides have the remarkable ability to delete the aging command and trigger the repair of the skin circulation network. This occurs because they follow the lock-and-key model: The peptide is recognized by specific molecules-receptors or proteins on the surface of the cell membrane, triggering a biochemical chain reaction inside the cell.
• Play a key role in message transmission among cells.
• Encourage skin tissue regeneration.
• Repair the deeper tissue.
• Accelerate collagen production, resulting in fewer fine lines and increased skin elasticity.
• Reduce excess melanin production, which creates freckles and spots.
• Penetrate the skin without causing redness or irritation.
They are spherical vesicles consisting of phospholipid bilayers. They:
• Trap hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds inside them.
• Protect the encapsulated substances from chemical and enzymatic reactions.
• Transfer the encapsulated active ingredients deep into the skin.
• Release the active ingredients at their point of action.
• Hydrate and nourish the skin
What are the benefits of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid?
It acts on the outer layer of the skin. It penetrates slightly into the skin and creates a film on the skin surface.
It keeps the skin hydrated for many hours and makes it softer.
What are the benefits of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HySilk)?
It acts on the deeper layers of the skin and hydrates them. It penetrates into the skin along with the water molecules it retains. Additionally, it:
• Accelerates the production of amino acids of the natural moisturizing factor (NMF).
• Reduces erythema, oxidative stress and inflammation due to exposure to UV radiation.
What are the benefits of very low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HyActive)?

Choose the right cosmeceutical for you based on:
• Your skin type.
Each skin type has different needs and requires different products. Before choosing a specific cosmeceutical, find out if it is suitable for normal, oily or dry skin and pick the one that matches your skin type.
• The needs of your skin.
Each type of skin has different needs, which must be met. Skin with dark spots or wrinkles needs different care to irritated or dull skin. Choose a cosmeceutical based exactly on what your skin needs.
• The environmental conditions.
For example, if you live in a place with extreme air pollution, this must play a major role in your selection.
However, there are many mistakes you must avoid:
• Do not choose products based on your age.
Your age does not determine your skin needs. It is very possible that people of the same age may need different products. What is important is the needs of your skin.
• Do not listen to others.
You cannot choose the right cosmeceutical for you based on the recommendations and suggestions of others. A product that may be effective on the skin of a friend or a colleague may not necessarily be the right one for you. Your skin is unique and needs special care.
It is high-energy visible (HEV) light that is emitted by mobile phones, computers, tablets and screens. It produces the same quantity of oxygen free radicals as UVA/UVB radiation combined. As a matter of fact, it penetrates the skin deeper than UVA2.
HEV light is different spectrum light to that emitted by the sun. Coupled with infrared radiation it may cause:
• Premature aging
• Skin damage
• Tired-looking skin
The advanced Version sunscreens Cream Gel Face SPF 30, Cream Gel Face SPF 50 and Tinted DD 30 SPF contain lutein, an innovative high biotechnology active ingredient that protects your skin from blue light.
Dark spots are mainly due to solar radiation, but also to hormonal or genetic factors. They mainly appear on the face, the cleavage and the hands, because these areas are much more exposed to solar radiation. Since the damage caused by the sun has a cumulative effect, the dark spots multiply as time goes by.
Version protects you from dark spots with a series of advanced sunscreens and the Spots Free treatment.
The skin around your eyes is 5 to 10 times thinner than in other parts of your body. That is why it is so fragile. The skin looks more translucent and the blood vessels under the eyes are more visible. Since this spot contains fewer sebaceous glands and minimal fatty tissue, it needs greater hydration compared to other parts of the skin.
In addition, the area around the eyes contains a network of muscles which are constantly in use:
• The eyes blink 9,600 times a day on average.
• The skin around the eyes moves with each facial expression or movement, such as frowning, smiling, yawning, twitching or speaking.
This mechanical strain causes expression lines, such as crow’s feet or frown lines.
Moreover, exposure to sunlight forces the body to produce melanin, which makes the area around the eyes appear darker. Although dark circles have a hereditary predisposition, various environmental factors, such as exposure to pollutants and local irritants, also play a major role. They also cause skin inflammation, which leads to puffiness under the eyes (bags).
Expression lines, black circles and bags under the eyes make you look older, and make your eyes look tired and drab and your appearance sickly. The version eye products EΕ Cream Eyes, Vita – K, Peptide Eye Cream and Tamarind Serum Eyes restore the health, vitality and radiance of the sensitive area around the eyes.
