Benefits of Caviar Extract

The caviar used in this Signature Serum is sourced from non-fertilized sturgeon eggs, which have a unique mix of proteins, minerals and polyunsaturated fatty acids to help increase the firmness and smoothness of your skin. Caviar is chocked full of proteins and amino acids, in fact more than a quarter of the caviar extract is actually proteins and amino acids. These are perfect for increasing the production of collagen in your skin and so can have a wonderful firming effect on your skin.

Caviar also contains vitamins A, B, D and E, giving you a powerful mix of antioxidants, collagen and elastin boosters, all adding to the anti-aging and rejuvenative qualities of this serum. Don’t forget the moisturizing and emollient properties in caviar (due to hygroscopic, water retaining components) and you have an all round nourishing ingredient for your skin.

Benefits of Rose Stem Cells

Plant stem cells have the innate ability to self-renew and are responsible for a plant’s new spring growth and continued growth throughout its life. They don’t actually stimulate your cells to grow, but some research has indicated that they can help to promote the regeneration of your skin’s cells.

Plant stem cells have also been said to extend the life of your own stem cells, to delay the effects of aging on your skin and to protect your skin against environmental stresses. Whether all of this is true or not is questionable, but the use of plant stem cells in anti-aging skin care is very popular. 

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

This Signature Caviar Serum contains both sodium hyaluronate and hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, which are two different forms of hyaluronic acid. Sodium hyaluronate is a salt of hyaluronic acid (it’s water soluble), which absorbs water really well, moisturizing your skin and helping the ingredients of other beauty products penetrate your skin.

benefits of hyaluronic acid

The lower the molecular weight of sodium hyaluronate, the better it penetrates your skin, which is why it’s always better to look for a serum that contains low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (as this one does). Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid also has a small molecular weight, letting it easily penetrate your skin’s cells to stimulate the production of collagen and super hydrate your skin. So the Alpessence Signature Caviar Serum has two different forms of hyaluronic acid to give your skin a super boost in hydration, firmness and elasticity.

FYI: The molecular weight of sodium hyaluronate is lower than that of hyaluronic acid, so if a serum says that it has a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, look for sodium hyaluronate or Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid in the ingredients list, not just hyaluronic acid.

Benefits of Lactic Acid

As an alpha hydroxy acid, lactic acid is a great skin exfoliator, removing all the debris and dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin, leaving your skin looking and feeling clean and healthy.  Lactic acid is derived from sour milk and is well known for its skin softening properties (this is most probably why Cleopatra bathed in Asses milk!). Today, lactic acid is a popular ingredient in skin care products, where it helps to brighten your skin, reduce fine lines. improve the texture of your skin and reduce blotchiness skin and mild hyper-pigmentation. 


How do you use the Alpessence Signature Caviar Serum?

Adding this Caviar Serum to your beauty routine is very simple, because all you need to do it to cleanse your face first and pat it dry. Always leave your skin slightly damp when using a serum that contains hyaluronic acid, otherwise this ingredient can do the reverse of what you want it to do and actually dry out your skin!

Leaving your skin damp helps the hyaluronic acid to penetrate your skin better, especially if you live in a dry climate. Having said this, you then need to massage one or two drops of the Caviar Serum into your skin morning and evening, and once it is dry (a minute or less), you can follow up with your favorite moisturizer. 


Who should use the Alpessence Signature Caviar Serum?

Anyone who suffers from dry or dull skin, fine lines or a loss in definition along the jaw line will likely benefit from using this Signature Caviar Serum. Particularly if you really want to treat yourself to a decadent and luxurious serum that contains caviar and rose stem cells!

It’s not always easy keeping the dry skin on your heels at bay, but the Exfoliating Foot Peel Mask by Vena Beauty fits the bill nicely. Most of us try to exfoliate our feet on a regular basis, but the results are usually not what we had hoped for!  Pumice stones, hard skin removers, foot soaks, coconut oil, moisturizers and wearing socks in bed – all can help to some degree, but if you don’t keep on top of the problem, you can end up with very painful cracked heels.
