The regenerative abilities of the skin decrease with age with superficial wrinkles being the first signs of skin aging. Designed especially for normal to oily skin types, KNU serum addresses the challenge of skin aging with a combination of 70% organic ingredients, including jasmine, cranberry, green tea, aloe vera, and essential oils to heal, soothe and provide antioxidant protection. These are combined with todays most powerful age prevention ingredients possessing significant skin-regenerating properties clinically shown to accelerate healing and increase the rate of skin renewal to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature skin aging:
A key ingredient in Knu is Epidermal Growth Factor or EGF, a natural age prevention ingredient with potent regenerating properties that makes it valuable for age prevention and age reversal of the skin. Discovered in 1986 by two scientists who received a Nobel Prize in Medicine for their work, EGF opened the door to understanding how cells communicate with each other and forever changed the landscape of skin rejuvenation. It has potent regenerating properties, making it valuable for age prevention and age reversal of the skin.
Knu also contains Matrixl 3000® and Syn®-Coll, which are groups of beneficial amino acids bound together with peptides that specifically target skin cell renewal through regeneration of collagen. TriPeptides can dramatically improve the resilience, tone and texture of the skin, while decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It re-energizes and hydrates the skin, while increasing firmness and is safe for damaged, mature or fragile skin.
For decades, DMAE has been recommended as both a nutritional supplement and more recently as a topical treatment to combat the signs of aging of the face and body. A nutritional substance with powerful anti-inflammatory properties, DMAE can help stimulate muscle tone in the face and body as we age, helping to prevent both sagging and drooping of the muscles under skin. When applied topically in Knu, the effects of DMAE are almost immediately visible. The skin looks firmer, lifted, less lined, and smoother. The effects are also cumulative. Studies looking at weeks, months and even up to a year of use show that improvements and benefits of DMAE continue to accrue.
Alpha hydroxy acids
Alpha hydroxyl acids or AHA’s as they are called are reported to improve wrinkling, roughness, and mottled pigmentation of photodamaged skin over time with regular use. Working mainly as an exfoliant, AHA’s allow dead skin cells to slough off, making room for regrowth of new skin and may even stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
An unusual little known beauty ingredient derived from the secretion of snails. A complex secretion rich in protein, lipids, trace minerals, enzymes, copper, peptides, amino acids and more, the snail’s secretion protects its own skin from cuts, bacteria and powerful UV rays, making mother nature’s "goo" a prime source for proteins that eliminate dead cells and regenerate skin. It’s a treatment that that has been used as far back as ancient Greece: Hippocrates reportedly prescribed a mixture of sour milk and crushed snails for skin inflammations. In 2006, Chilean farmers reportedly noticed visibly smoother skin after handling snails bred for the French food market. These days, it’s a treatment for skin. The antioxidant and regenerative properties of snail serum have been documented in several independent clinical studies. See note below. Valued for its active ingredients, the secretion has a double function when applied to human skin: it stimulates the formation of collagen, elastin and dermal components that repair the signs of photoaging and, second, minimizes the damage generated by free radicals that are responsible for premature skin aging.
Unlike many companys that rely on a single key ingredient, Knu offers a unique and powerful combination of anti-aging ingredients and is endorsed by Eric Braverman, M.D., a leading authority on anti-aging medicine, who uses Knu as well as recommending it to his patients.
Our formulations are made without added water, parabens, sulfates, artificial dye or synthetic fragrance. Never tested on animals.
**The antioxidant and regenerative properties of snail serum have been documented in independent clinical studies. 2007 study; 2008 study and 2011 study. The serum is obtained from snails raised specifically to obtain the snail secretion for cosmetic use. The snails are not harmed in the process; only the secretion is used. The harvested secretion is then purified in FDA registered facilities prior to being used as an ingredient in Knu.
