The Iris Elixir by Christian Berlin stimulates cell renewal, strengthens the connective tissue and defuses free radicals, which lead to wrinkles. Our proprietary CoQ10 ensures skin elasticity and reduces wrinkling from the inside. Studies have shown that regular CoQ10 intake actively energize the cells, allowing them to detox and cleanse.
Christian Berlin's Iris Elixir uses a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, enabling it to be absorbed through the lymphatic system. The acid is then carried to the cell tissue where it sediments. A study of the biochemical properties of HA shows that the oral intake significantly improves the skin’s moisture level. In another study on the long term effects, scientists from the School of Medicine in Thessaloniki and the University Hospital Basel have shownthat hyaluronic acid exponentially decreases the aging process of the skin.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble molecule, also called ubiquinone-10 or UQ, which naturally occurs in the body. There CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant that protects the cells from damage. In the human body, the molecule can mainly be found in the heart, liver and kidneys. This powerhouse molecule ensures a fresh, youthful complexion by supporting the cells and protecting the skin from the damages of free radicals. Environmental aggressions such as UV radiation, fine dust and smog are cushioned and sun damage is mitigated.
Hyaluronic acid is a multiple sugar (polysaccharide), which can be characterized by its moisture-binding capabilities. One gram of the molecule can bind up to 6 liters of water. Hyaluronic acid is the main component of our synovial fluid and ensures that our joints remain steadfast under heavy loads. In the skin, hyaluronic acid works like a natural water reservoir, providing it with more elas-ticity. Every year the body loses about 1 % of its own hyaluronic acid content. Paired with a simultaneous collagen breakdown, the disappearance of HA leads to loss of skin elasticity, volume and the appearance of wrinkles.
Christian Berlin's Iris Elixir contains a unique blend of collagenpeptides – protein chains which enable a targeted body absorption. The high level of collagen enters the bloodstream after ingestion and enables 90 - 95 % of the peptides to be fully absorbed. Clinical trials using radioactive markers have proven the presence of these peptides for up to two weeks prior to ingestion, thus dramatically improving overall skin hydration and signs of age after just 4 weeks.
Collagen is a vital molecule which helps to improve general health. The complex protein is found in many of our organs – and makes up 6 % of your own body weight, determines the elasticity as well as strength of the connective tissue. Collagen rejuvenates your body delivering a silky smooth feel to your skin.
