Water & Prunus Lannesiana (Cherry Blossom) Flower Extract & Akebia Quinata (Chocolate Vine) Stem Extract & Myrica Rubra (Yumberry) Fruit Extract & Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate & Saccharomyces Lysate
DermaSpring IQ is a comprehensive multi-target anti-aging solution for all skin types. Skin aging concerns vary based on ethnicity-derived needs in the pursuit of beauty. For example, primary aging concerns for Caucasians are fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity; for Asians dark spots and redness; for Africans dryness and uneven skin tone. DermaSpring IQ is a powerful, natural, biome-friendly solution to help minimize and reverse the skin aging effects of the exposome and it is clinically proven to improve skin appearance to be firmer, smoother, brighter, with a more even complexion.
Bio-Hacked BCR™ is a proprietary fermentation technology combining biome-friendly probiotics, Lactobacillus plantarum and Saccharomyces boulardi, with prebiotic superfoods. The process yields a POSTBIOTIC broth brimming with micronutrients that are supportive to the environment of the skin microbiome. It is a clean and sustainable methodology that extracts a full spectrum of plant derived actives with enhanced bioavailability to boost efficacy and accelerate the onset of benefits to the skin.
The Bio-Hacked fermentation of this unique ingredient combination of cherry blossom, akebia stem, and yumberry, produces bio-functional actives: Myricetin, Quercetin, Kaempferol, Isorhamnetin, Chlorogenic & Caffeic acids with scientifically-proven anti-aging properties targeting multiple skin physiological pathways.
Myrica rubra (Chinese Bayberry, Japanese Yumberry) is a common plant found mainly in Taiwan, China, and eastern Asia, and the fruit is harvested each spring from May to June and has an attractive flavor and tastes sourly delicious. The fruit is a rich source for natural phytochemicals: flavonols of myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol glycosides, and anthocyanins such as Cyanidin-3–O-glucoside and peonidin. Myrica rubra fruit extract is shown to inhibit tyrosinase (TYR) activity, mitigating hyperpigmentation for brighter and more even skin tone.
Cherry blossom, or Sakura (Prunus Lannesiana), has been a symbol of beauty in Japan since ancient times and originally exclusive to the elite class. Cherry blossom blooms in the spring and is viewed as a symbol of good fortune. Studies show that cherry blossom extract significantly inhibits the production of AGEs in human fibroblasts, largely from major bioactive components caffeoyl glucoside and quercetin. Anti-glycation is an important approach to fight aging while promoting healthy, youthful skin and preventing brown spots formation. Additionally, the extract has been shown to be effective in maintaining extracellular matrix structure and further protecting against fibroblasts glycation.
Akebia Fruit is also known as chocolate vine, due to the fragrance the flowers emit… that’s right, the plant smells like chocolate! There are phytochemical studies reporting the presence of chlorogenic acid, isochlorogenic acid as well as lignan glycosides. In addition to powerful antioxidant activity, studies show that akebia extract has protective effects on fibroblast aging induced by AGEs and decreases the level of intracellular ROS in AGEs-treated fibroblasts. In addition, the anti-glycation activity was confirmed in a human skin explant model. Akebia stimulated fibrillin-1 expression in comparison to the control and exhibited protective benefits that keep the skin healthy and radiant.
