  • Photozyme Youth Recovery Serum -Visibly reduce the signs of aging caused by sun damage. 80% of skin aging is due to the sun. While your skin’s DNA is subject to daily environmental assaults accelerating skin aging, your body can only process and repair about 50% of this damage in any given day. Photozyme Youth Recovery Serum utilizes a targeted delivery of natural repair enzymes called DNA Enzyme Technology which help prevent the signs of skin aging from surfacing. Plant-derived enzymes mimic the body’s natural response to photo-damage. The enzymes are encapsulated in a liposomal delivery system which drives them into the skin and delivers the enzymes into the cell. The enzymes search and adhere to the damaged DNA strand only (search & destroy). Your cell’s natural process takes over and the damage is then extracted or cut out (your body’s natural response). Your DNA mimics a clean strand and replicates to a healthy cell. Because Photozyme Youth Recovery Serum helps the skin repair the “other” 50% of damaged DNA and provides faster DNA recovery, it offers added protection/prevention to the UV damage suffered from sun exposure. In addition, Photozyme holds off collagen degradation in the lower layers of the skin, therefore helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is non-comedogenic, and paraben-free. Photozyme fits perfectly with all skincare regimens and attacks both past and present damage!
