Breakthroughs in Collagen
PURIGENEX’s flagship products are collagen-based intensive skin therapies: ICS Intensive Collagen Serum and ICM Ionized Collagen Mask. These formulas are medically engineered with the world’s most highly purified atelocollagen — a truly non-immunogenic, bio-compatible element in the most active animal-source form. Collagen of this quality has never before been offered in topical cosmetic preparations. ICS and ICM are FDA-registered, preservative-free formulas that are highly tolerated by even the most sensitive individuals.
These products are indicated for all who are seeking to prevent and repair their skin from aging, sun damage,
discolorations, and acne scarring. Regular, directed use will boost the skin’s own collagen integrity, to make it appear plumper, smoother, more supple, and more youthful. Additionally, skin nourished with PURIGENEX collagen is able to function more effectively as part of a healthy body’s natural defense system.
Advanced Dermal Technology
PURIGENEX is an innovative body care brand founded on the principle that healthy skin leads to better health. This doctor-approved line for men and women focuses on extraordinary, unique products with therapeutic properties that help to nourish skin, release impurities, and combat aging.
PURIGENEX is committed to sourcing the finest formulations and active elemental ingredients in the world, in order to reconnect skin care to an optimal wellness regimen. Our collagen preparations represent pioneering
molecular chemistry and the newest bio-engineered delivery systems — truly enhanced therapies of the highest potency, affinity, and assimilation. We also offer skin purifying products made of rare compounds from the tropics of Hawaii, volcanic mountains near the Himalayas, and the herbal practices of Korea and Japan –remedies that honor the ancient botanical medicine of the East. PURIGENEX products act to rehydrate cells, balance electrolytes, soothe inflammation, and draw toxins away from the sub-dermal lymph and fatty tissue.
Collagen is nature’s most abundant protein polymer. It has a triple helical polypeptide structure with antigenic formations called “telopeptides” at each end of the molecule. Telopeptides are the major cause of immune reactions to proteins, because they are unique to each individual. Consequently, general collagen can cause an allergic response or rejection in up to 20% of treatments.
In atelocollagen, the telopeptides are removed from a Type I collagen molecule, creating a far more viable, non-immunogenic form of the protein. Furthermore, atelocollagen is much higher in density than general collagen; so, it is easily absorbed into the skin.
PURIGENEX’s atelocollagen was originally developed by distinguished researchers as a medical grade raw material for tissue regeneration. Now it has been adapted for transdermal cosmetic use, providing the most highly purified, safe, bio-compatible collagen available with rare to no side effects.
Active collagen loses its therapeutic properties at high temperatures because heat loosens the triple helix structure of the protein. This causes the amino acids in collagen to denature and break down. Most commercial collagen preparations are manufactured at high temperatures and distributed at room temperature, leading the triple helical protein to unravel. Collagen preparations of this nature are called “hydrolyzed collagen” or “gelatin”. Gelatin products advertised as collagen in many cosmetic creams and lotions are just simple proteins which may hydrate the skin; but, they lack the biologically active properties of true collagen.
Inactive, or resolved, collagen has been found to inhibit the function of surrounding cells when applied to the skin. In contact with this material, the skin cells’ ability to compound collagen is decreased. This can lead to deeper wrinkles and decreased skin elasticity. Accordingly, collagen preparations for the skin should be produced and supplied at cold temperatures. ICS and ICM are formulated with purified porcine-source atelocollagen at cold temperatures, and should be kept in refrigeration at 39-50ºF.
ANTI-AGING COLLAGEN THERAPY
What is Purigenex?
Ionized Collagen Mask penetrates cells and increases the strength and tone of loose or aged skin tissue. This mask also penetrates the skin for deeper penetration of ICS Intensive Collagen Serum.
