Deoxyribonucleic acid, better known as DNA, is the so-called building block of life. It contains the genetic material needed to create every part of who we are and tells each part exactly how to function. Unfortunately, the usual wear and tear of living such as stress, pollution and poor food choices all take their toll. And adding stressors such as smoking, drinking alcohol and drug use do even more damage. Our cells can repair a lot of this damage, but some can’t be undone, leading to genetic mutations that can be the beginning of disease.
We are surrounded by factors that can seriously damage our DNA and, by implication, damage our cells’ ability to rejuvenate and repair themselves. And, all of these can significantly impact on our skin cells, and often result in premature ageing.
ZO® Skin Health recognises this threat to our skin and uses technology as the driver for anti-ageing skin care and cosmeceuticals. Some of the brand’s most important ingredient formulations include DNA repair enzymes, plant stem cells, growth factors, retinol and peptides, all of which work at the cellular level to repair free radical damage as it occurs. This makes the cells stronger and more resistant to future damage.
Most of its products contain DNA repair agents that promote faster repair of DNA damage caused by genetic ageing and external environmental stressors.
DNA repair products include the ZO® Skin Health Advanced Radical Night Repair, which contains all of the key repair agents. Daily Power Defense uses DNA repair enzymes to enhance your skin’s recovery capabilities. These special enzymes attach directly to your own DNA molecules and repair oxidative damage caused by UV exposure. Similarly, repair enzymes are also found in Growth Factor Serum, which uses a combination of two proprietary peptides, retinol and amino acids, to boost collagen and stimulate cellular function. Brightalive™ combines its skin brightening approach with continuous protection against oxidative stress and enhanced DNA repair.
ZO® Skin Health’s passion for sustainable skin health, always backed by sound skin science, ensures that we have products that don’t just protect our skin, but also repair, and prevent further DNA damage.
