Ferulic activator 30ml
This night cream is formulated to reduce the skin pH gradually, simultaneously exfoliate, replenish moisture and reduce pigmentation for a smooth, radiant complexion. It is used to prepare the skin before photo-ageing & purifying peels.
ferulic activator is a potent free radical scavenger and resurfacing cream. The formula contains 3 types of acids (ferulic, lactic and tranexamic), enzymes, 4 peptides and vitamin E. it can be used as a single intensive treatment or to prepare the skin for ferulic peptide peels. The product is highly effective in promoting skin renew, exfoliation, reducing pigmentation and to reduce the skin pH. It must be combined with the all-day shield during the day to protect the skin from UV damages.
- Designed to restore the natural skin pH gradient.
- Activate exfoliating enzymes to renew the skin gradually.
- Increase the overall skin radiance and reduce pigmentation.
- Reduce the skin redness acne and rosacea.
- Provides advanced environmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals.
- Visible anti-aging benefits, such as the improvement of the appearance of lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and brightens skin’s complexion.
- Restore a high skin moisture.

- Ferulic acid
- Lactic acid
- Tranexamic acid
- 2 lipopeptides
HOW TO USE
- As single treatment: use the product for 5 to 6 weeks in combination with the all-day shield during the day. Once daily at night, apply the cream to the face, neck, and chest.
- As a combined treatment with professional ferulic peptide peel use as directed by a skincare professional. During the 2 weeks before the first treatment, apply at night and combine it during the day with the all-day shield. Then apply 3 consecutive days before additional procedures.

In the medical field, tranexamic acid is a reliable haemostatic agent during surgery and in the case of accidental injuries. In medical cosmetics, tranexamic acid is used for skin treatments: already small amounts can bleach pigmented spots and reduce redness – also in combination with instrument-based techniques.
A chance discovery for dermatology
In dermatology the effects of tranexamic acid have been known for a long time, namely in the context of pigment disorders. The first report on the treatment of melasmas with tranexamic acid dates back to 1979, the intensity of a melasma was significantly reduced within a period of two to three weeks.
Melasmas or hyperpigmentations form in a variety of ways. They are triggered by miscellaneous endogenic and exogenous influences such as
- UV radiation of the sunlight
- photosensitization, or in other words, the reduced sensitivity threshold of the skin to light caused by essential oils for instance
- hormonal influences, as for example during pregnancy
- inflammation mediators such as prostaglandins and cytokines (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation)
- AGE (Advanced Glycation End products), or in other words, products that form in the body due to the reaction of proteins or lipids with carbohydrates; they are held responsible for a variety of health implications
- other deposits of endogenous metabolic products
Tranexamic acid is effective after oral administration and after topical application. A variety of biochemical mechanisms have been discussed, among them the inhibition of tyrosinase and the preceding processes such as the reduction of free arachidonic acid and prostaglandin E2.
Besides the bleaching effect, tranexamic acid also reduces the translucent reddish colour of the superficial blood vessels. The result is an even complexion.
Peptides that regulate melanogenesis – these peptides affect the process of melanogenesis, either reducing or increasing production of pigment under the influence of UV rays. (Nonapeptide-1).
Ferulic acid occurs in nature, in plants as a free acid or as ester mainly in seeds, in leaves and in barks. The multiactive and multifunctional effects of ferulic acid are really of most interest.
1. Sunscreen effect: Ferulic acid like chemical sunscreen agents have a phenyl-2-propene structure that means, they have a vinylgroup at the benzene ring, which is strongly absorbing UV-light. By this absorption, the stabilized phenoxy radical will be formed and later a cis-trans-isomerization will occur. By this mode of action ferulic acid in barks, leaves and seeds is protecting the plant from the harmful rays of sunlight. Ferulic acid and their esters show a maximum of UV-absorption at 280nm and 340nm (UVB).
2. An antioxidative effectiveness: Ferulic acid can prevent the development of radicals started by oxygen and UV-radiation. Each reactive radical which might get contact with a molecule of ferulic acid abstracts a hydrogen atom from the phenolic group of ferulic acid. A phenoxyradical is generated, which shows a high resonance stabilization. Therefore, ferulic acid is approved as an antioxidant agent in cosmetics and in food. Ferulic acid and peptides form mixtures with synergistic antioxidative effects against peroxidation of unsaturated fatty acids and fats of all kind. Ferulic acid also enhances the antioxidant benefits of vitamin E.
3. Anti-inflammatory effectiveness: The effect of many anti-inflamatory agents is based on their influence on mediators of inflammable reactions. Oxygen radicals belong to these mediators. The anti-inflammatory effectiveness of ferulic acid is based on its antioxidative potential.
