Our skin is the largest organ of our body, and protects us from harmful elements in the environment.
Environmental pollution, poor nutrition, and excess stress can result in the dehydration and premature ageing of the skin, which is evidenced by wrinkles, lines, stretch marks, acne, rashes, liver spots, blemishes, rough and dry skin, bruising, and dark circles under the eyes
STRUCTURE OF THE SKIN
The skin is made up of three main layers: the epidermis (the surface); the dermis beneath; and the connective tissue that joins the skin to the muscles and tissues.
The epidermis protects the body against minor environmental factors, and is constantly renewing itself. For example, the stratum cells at the surface renew approximately every 21 days; and our skin is constantly shedding these cells when they die.
The dermis below is like a shield that protects the body against harsher elements such as acids and micro-organisms. It is irrigated with fine blood capillaries, nerves, lymph vessels, hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and sweat glands; and enables us to feel temperature, pressure, texture, and other sensations.
The hypodermis (or connective tissue) is composed of collagen and elastin protein fibres. This tissue requires about 20 amino acids to provide the appropriate elasticity and strength. One of the functions of the connective tissue is to act as a filter and protect the body from damaging ultra-violet light.
AGEING OF THE SKIN
Normal, smooth, and hydrated skin contains adequate elastin fibres (non-cross linked soluble collagen) that enable the skin to be flexible and elastic. These elastin fibres are found in the connective tissue of the skin.
When the skin becomes dehydrated, this results in an excess of cross-linked insoluble collagen forming, which causes the skin to take on a wrinkled appearance. The surface skin also becomes thinner, and is prone to damage.
In order to rebalance the skin and replenish it with adequate non-cross linked soluble collagen, the skin cells require an adequate supply of about 20 amino acids. These can be supplied to the cells either from within the bodily system, or externally from an appropriate preparation that contains these nutrients for the skin. , &
ABSORPTION OF NUTRIENTS BY THE SKIN
The absorption of nutrients by the skin is determined by:
- the permeability of the skin; and
- the formulation of the nutrients and the transdermal carrier or transporter.
Permeability: The skin’s permeability is increased by large skin pores and hair follicles; and warm skin temperature that dilates these pores and follicles.
Formulation: Three product formulation criteria determine the absorption rate of the product by the skin cells:
Ingredient particle sizes: the smaller the particle sizes are, the more likely they are to be absorbed by the skin.
pH balance: the skin normally has a pH of 5.6, and for every 10% increase in pH (that is, making the skin more alkaline), there is the potential for 10 times more oxygenation to take place.
Bio-electrical charge: if a product contains a bio-electrical charge in its formulation, this raises the pH level of the skin (so, increasing potential for oxygenation); and lowers the surface tension of the cells, making cell receptors more able to assimilate nutrients.
ABSORPTION OF Cellfood SKINCARE
Cellfood SKINCARE complies with these three criteria:
Ingredient particle sizes: ingredients in Cellfood SKINCARE are absorbed by the skin because they are colloidal - that is, between 4 – 7 nanometers in diameter; and can therefore permeate the skin through the pores, hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and interstitial spaces between the skin cells. At subcutaneous levels, the ingredients in Cellfood SKINCARE (e.g. amino acids) can assist the skin in rejuvenating itself (e.g. by producing more elastin fibres).
pH balance: Cellfood®, the oxygen mineral supplement, comprises 35% of the ingredients in Cellfood SKINCARE; and research has shown how Cellfood® increases oxygen saturation of the cells.
Cellfood® also acts as a transdermal carrier or transporter, facilitating the delivery of the spectrum of skin care nutrients to the skin cells.
Bio-electrical charge: The proprietary technology of Electroculture™ has also been used in the formulation of Cellfood SKINCARE. By this process, the electrons that spin around each colloidal atomic particle in the product are electrically induced or manipulated to assume a positive vortex spin.
This makes each particle in Cellfood SKINCARE compatible with the positive vortex spin of a living cell in a human organism.
In nature, if a cell has been “damaged” in some way (due to chemical, biological or electro-magnetic contamination), the electrons around the particles in the cell assume a negative vortex spin. Although the particles are energized, this vortex energy is used for processes of decay and degradation of the particles.
When a particle has its electrons spinning with a positive vortex spin, it is said to be super-energized, because it can then fulfil functions of building, cleansing, restoring and regenerating a cell within the body.
This is nature’s cycle of life and death:
Super-energized particles for life-giving functions; and
Energized particles for decaying functions
