Why Deep Sea Water?
There are many reasons that Deep Sea Water products will help you enhance your skin, promoting health and beauty.
|Collagen is a form of protein in our cells that mainly works as the organic structure of our healthy youthful skin. Without enough collagen, wrinkles and lines begins to form as a natural aging process.
We use hydrolyzed marine collagen that is exclusively derived from a marine source and then purified and enzymatically processed to make it more easily absorbed. Hydrolyzed marine collagen is water-soluble and is a rich source of amino acids.
Unlike collagen from other sources that will remain over the surface of the skin, our marine collagen ensures to penetrate into the skin layer by being micro in its structure. It also contains a natural anti-oxidant agent to protect cells from free-radicals.
Marine collagen is a type I collagen, which is the same type contained in human skin. It supports replenishing the collagen layer to maintain healthy elasticity and fullness.
|Kume island where we cultivate our purest and most authentic Deep Sea Water is famous for its beautiful coral reef. Coral contains plenty of calcium and magnesium, and 74 other trace minerals.
The pure, clear tropical waters of Okinawa...
Coral is naturally porous-it has full of microscopic holes in its particle structure. Even the smallest grains of powdered coral are a few microns in size. When you wash your face with coral powder, the small particles of coral powder not only works as exfoliate, but also get into your pores and cleanse them by absorbing impurities into those holes to be washed off. When applied to skin, it absorbs the impurity from the pores, removes dead skin cells as well as components for odor. It is also known for its high anti-bacterial nature.
We cultivate fossilized coral grains far from the beautiful living reef of Okinawa, in deep, dark water where coral cannot grow and live. Coral powder was, at one time, part of the living reef and when it was a living coral, it absorbed and produced elements and minerals. Fossilized coral still retains many of these elements and minerals. We use environmentally friendly collection methods to harvest this fossilized coral before refining them. The Okinawa prefectural government maintains strict guidelines for protecting the coral of Okinawa. Our practices respect, protect, and actually improve the living reef ecosystem.
Coral thrives in shallow waters, where the sun reaches the ocean floor. In Okinawa, coral lives in depths of up to 30 meters. We only collect fossilized coral grains in deep sea where no living coral grows.
Purify your skin with Deep Sea Water Coral Wash with finest Coral Powder together with Sea Kelp and Natural AHA will cleanse impurity from the pore and exfoliate the skin while promoting the natural and healthy rejuvenation cycle of your skin.
|Cleopatra used mud to keep her skin flawless. Mud packs have been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments as well as to restore beauty. Mud used for therapeutic purposes is generally taken from areas with high minerals.
Deep Sea Silt (Mud) from Okinawa Japan has a special quality in its making. It is said that Okinawa people in ancient times had used this silt for washing their hair as it has a very high capacity to absorb fat and decomposed protein in the root of the hair, and remove at the molecule level any impurity and allergen that is attached to the skin. This silt has accumulated over several millions of years on the bottom of the Deep Sea by yellow sand blown in from the desert of China and Mongolia through the prevailing westerlies into the Sea of Okinawa. The reason why Okinawa deep sea silt has such fine particles of sand is that, when yellow sand travels through the wind every year, most of the larger grains of sand drops near China and Mongolia at its early stage of travel, leaving only finest particles to reach the far distance.
The particles that are found in Okinawa Deep Sea silt are homogeneously about 5 micron each. As it has been sitting on the bottom of the ocean for such a long time it was the fertile ground for some of the primitive types of sea shells and other marine creatures. Therefore, it contains large amount of crystallized or uncrystrallized silicate, oxidized aluminum, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, titanium, and other oxides and hydroxides and most of those exists as soluble ion.
Over 60% of this Deep Sea Silt is less than 5 micron in its size, which is extremely fine particles, and this special condition can only be found in a specific area of Okinawa. These fine particles can go in and fill the finer areas over the skin dermis and absorb impurities while removing unnecessary materials from the skin. Many of the skin's pores are at least 12 micron in size, therefore, the silt can clean the impurity inside the pore as well. Now the silt is used for face and body pack and it is famous for its smooth application due to its fine particles.
Nurturing your skin with Deep Sea Water Deep Pore Cleansing Mud Mask can cleanse your pores, refresh and rejuvenate your skin with high quality natural minerals.
|APPS is one of the most cutting edge and effective form of Vitamin C derivatives available on the market. Vitamin C is known for helping collagen formation on skin which smoothes fine line and wrinkles. It also has the ability to fight against free radicals, a by-product of cell metabolism in your body. Free radicals are thought to attack proteins, fats, and DNA and break down collagen. Vitamin C also seem to guard against UV rays from the sun, which can lead to freckles and mottled complexion. There is no question about its ability to repair our skin cells but most Vitamin C in skin care formula has them in its ineffective form.
The pure Vitamin C often gets destroyed in its composition once it is applied to our skin. Vitamin C derivatives are not pure vitamin C in its form but will become vitamin C once it is applied into your skin cell.
Ascorbic Acid, the simple form of vitamin C can be unstable and has such low pH level in its chemistry that it can irritate the skin when it is applied. It can also produce free radicals under the UV-B wave.
Ascorbyl Glucoside which is widely used in skin care formula has high stability in its chemistry but it is less convertible to the Vitamin C in our skin cells due to its interaction with human enzyme that exist in our skin.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is easy to be absorbed by the skin and has ability to provide Vitamin C to the skin cell. It has been reported effective by using to prevent acne, assist collagen production, and brighten the skin tones.
Ascorbyl IsoPalmitate is a liquid form of Vitamin C derivatives that mix well with oil product. It is difficult to formulate in water base formula.
Deep Sea Water Highly Active Vitamin C Repair Serum contains high quality Vitamin C derivatives. Our Vitamin C derivative - APPS - has over 100 times more ability to penetrate the skin compared to the other "so called effective Vitamin C that are listed above" on the market. APPS is compatible to both water and oil and has ability to penetrate into deeper skin layers and permeate through cell membranes. By the enzymes activities (esterase and phosphatase) at the deeper skin layers, the APPS can be effectively converted to Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Applying Deep Sea Water Highly Active Vitamin C Repair Serum can help to reduce your wrinkles and other aging signs and brighten your skin for healthy and youthful glow.
|EGF (Epidermis Growth Factor)
EGF naturally exists in human body and its availability decreases as we age older. In general, EGF on your skin starts to decrease around the age of 25 years old, weakens the ability of cell renewal and gradually slow down the cycle of cell regeneration that lead to the formation of wrinkles and other aging symptoms.
EGF is a type of protein that consists of 53 amino acids that promote the production of new cells by connecting to its receptor on the surface of our skin. It was discovered by the American biologist Dr. Stanley Cohen who officially named it as human oligopeptide-1. He received Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1986 for his research on EGF.
EGF directly promotes growth, proliferation and differentiation of the skin cell. In clinical research, it showed the evidence of skin cell renewal at average rate of 288%. The discovery of EGF was very innovative to medical community especially in the field of burn treatment and skin cell regeneration. EGF has been widely sold to medical institutions throughout the world as one of the most prestige elements, and now it is available in our skin care collection.
Although EGF can renew the cells at higher rate, its stability and safety has been studied. It maintains its own homeostasis that you cannot accept extra EGF once it saturated the cell receptor on the surface of the skin. Therefore, the skin can never produce unnecessary cell division or growth regardless of how much mass of EGF are given to the skin.
The EGF that is used in Deep Sea Water Highly Active Vitamin C Repair Serum is nano-encapsulated growth factor that reduces and prevents lines and wrinkles by actively generating new skin cells, enhances tone for skin vitality, and nourishes for a smoother and brighter appearances.
|Fullerenes were first identified in 1985 as products of experiments in which graphite was vaporized using a laser, work for which R. F. Curl, Jr., R. E. Smally, and H. W. Kroto shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Fullerenes have since been discovered in nature as a result of lightning strikes, in the residue produced by carbon arc lamps, in interstellar dust, and in meteorites.
The smallest possible fullerene molecule may have as few as 32 atoms of carbon
The most common and most stable fullerene is buckminster fullerene, a spheroidal molecule, resembling a soccer ball, consisting of 60 carbon atoms. Buckminster fullerene is the most abundant cluster of carbon atoms found in carbon soot. It is also the smallest carbon molecule whose pentagonal faces are isolated from each other.
Fullerene are also called "radical sponge" because of its ability to absorb free radicals in our system that is a by-product of our cellular metabolism. Free radicals are the factors of our aging, causing cellular and DNA damage.
Deep Sea Water Highly Active Vitamin C Repair Serum has integrated this Fulleren together with one of the most effective Vitamin C derivatives (APPS) and the cutting edge element, human skin's growth factor (EGF) to ensure the maximum healing, rejuvenation, and repair for your youthful and healthy skin. any of a class of carbon molecules in which the carbon atoms are arranged into 12 pentagonal faces and 2 or more hexagonal faces to form a hollow sphere, cylinder, or similar figure. The Fullerene chemistry involves substituting metal atoms for one or more carbon atoms in the molecule to produce compounds called fullerides. Among these are conducting films of alkali metal-doped fullerenes and superconductors (potassium-doped Tc 18°K, rubidium-doped Tc 30°K). Fullerenes also have been used to produce tiny diamonds and thin diamond films. Fullerene research is expected to lead to new materials, lubricants, coatings, catalysts, electro-optical devices, and medical applications.
|Fukoidan, a super nutrient from a special algae extract, is extracted exclusively from brown seaweed. Recent research shows that it can stimulate the production of immune cells, providing the body with a stronger defense against bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, etc.
Numerous studies have reported that this special algae extract has the ability to act as an anti-tumor agent; it's been confirmed to cause certain types of rapidly growing cancer cells to self-destruct (a phenomenon known as apoptosis).
Our Fukoidan algae extract comes from natural, cold sea water, where it has flourished under excellent growth conditions.
From ancient times, Japanese have been using seaweed as their secret to beauty and longevity. Okinawans have one of the highest consumption rates of seaweed in their diet, and as a result, they have one of the highest life expectancies in the world.
Our exclusive Fukoidan algae extract has been extensively tested in our research laboratory. We've found that it prevents the formation of wrinkles as well as the oxidation and deterioration of collagen and hyaluronic acid in skin cells. In addition, this algae extract facilitates healing of wounds or damaged skin, promotes fullness and firmness, and has a strong capacity to hold moisture.
Fukoidan has an anti-coagulation effect on blood, which can help maintain healthy blood capillaries throughout skin, so skin cells can absorb enough nutrients to recover and/or maintain healthy conditions.
Fukoidan works to prevent the formation of pigmentation on skin. It has an agent to suppress enzymatic reactions to increase the formation of melanin (the agent that forms color and pigmentation) in skin cells.
Fukoidan algae extract also seems to have a calming effect on skin, which faces many everyday stresses.
|Many of the traditional cosmetic products have utilized petroleum as their main source of moisturizers. It seem to sooth the skin for a while, however many people started to report damages from them such as excessive wrinkles and pigments on their skin.
Our Deep Sea Water products are natural sea water-based with carefully chosen marine and herbal extracts. It will hydrate your skin with the purest sea water available in the world.
Deep Sea Water products are water-based natural gel forms that are free from petroleum and harmful oil. They promote skin's healthy breathing, rather than clogging pores.
Many conventional products mix oil and water to create lotions using emulsifiers that tend to dry and damage the skin. We don't use any emulsifiers.
Oil can easily become rancid by being exposed to the air. Rancid oil can actually promote aging and result in burning exposed to the sun. Our oil-free products provide skin protection.
All ingredients in our products are water soluble, so they're easily absorbable.
Our natural gel doesn't break down when introduced to external stimuli, unlike other conventional and synthetic gel products.
Our products offer a way to ensure a sufficient water supply gets to skin cells, which promotes their natural regeneration.
