Recently I was given the opportunity to try out some custom skincare from a company called Bionova. Bionova is based on Life Science Nanotechnology. Their line is based on 25 years of scientific research and development in physiology, biochemistry and science of bioactive complexes modeling. Even though their products look quite regular, the products are based on proprietary and multidisciplinary knowledge of the following:
- Bio-Medical Scientific Research
- Development of Nanotechnological approach in Individual Product Formulation
- Development of New Technology of a Modular Production Process
- Development of New Software, Special Network Communication and its Logistics
- Development of a New Business Model
- Implementation of Multiple Models of Customization in Skincare
Life Science Nanotechnology is going to be the future of skincare. What is the difference between Life science nanotechnology and Nanotechnology per se? Nanotechnology creates small partial sizes (nano-spheres, nano-sizes) of the matter, while Life Science Nanotechnology manipulates with nano-quantities of bioactive substances, just imitating their concentration in living cells. They are totally different entities.
Nanotechnology is going to be the future of skincare. Bio-actives
composition in nano-quantities concentration affects skin metabolism in physiological way.. Bionova tries to imitate Mother Nature by tricking it into thinking that what is going on the skin is actually bio-nutrients that are already in the human body
in the amount physiologically present in healthy skin.
Their skincare is a more customized than most companies. First, it is targeted toward which sex you are and then toward which age you are. They have the full gamut of regular products, cleansers, masks, serums, creams, etc. Their line is divided up into the following categories: N1-Custom, Impact, Bionova Sport and Bio 1 Act. The N1-Custom is the one that is customized the most for sex and age. You are asked which sex you are then you are divided into the following age groups (14-19, 20-25-26-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-65, 66+). You are then asked a number of questions about your skin and environment. The price of the product depends on the answer to these questions and where or not you would like a larger or smaller size product. Notice the largest changes in the skin categories between the ages of 14 to age 30. A lot happens to the skin during this time. Otherwise they are mainly decades, where we are doing prevention and maintenance. Because the skincare is customized, it gets targeted to the person who needs it the most, depending on ethnic background, age, gender, etc.
Bio 1 Act: Cleansers
Eye Makeup Remover 2.3 fl.oz. $30.00
This is a great remover of eye makeup that prepares skin for eye cream. It contains only the finest natural skin purified agents in strictly balanced amount. The cleanser removes all traces of makeup and mascara without leaving any oily residue. It gently and effectively cleanses the eye area without any irritation or stinging sensation. The cleanser contains natural anti-oxidants to protect the skin against damage from free radicals and oxidative stress. It also contains a special complex of essential vitamin, it nourishes the skin, increases cell health, healing abilities and oxygen utilization.
To use: apply a small amount to a cotton pad then wipe gently over eye area with eyes closed. Make sure to remove all traces of eye makeup prior to using eye cream. This eye makeup remover does not need to be rinsed off, as it does not leave any residue at all.
For my other product I tried out the Age Control Eye Area Treatment eye cream. This eye cream is not customized, but is for females of my age range. It is for specifically women with fine lines and wrinkles who are concerned with puffiness and dark circles. That is me. I do have some issues with these problems. This cream helps to rid the eye area of skin discolorations and dark spots by minimizing uneven skin color and darkness.
It prevents oxidative stress due to carefully balanced nanocomplex of cellular enzymes, free radical scavengers and bioflavonoids. This product also increases viscoelasticity of the skin area by 28-35%, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by inducing the synthesis of structural proteins with a nanocomplex of short chain polypeptides and enzymes. It regenerates the skin’s matrix, prevents premature aging of the eye area with a specially developed nanocomplex of attachment matrix factors, essential amino acids and nucleic acids. Also, it stimulates skin’s self-healing ability and increased oxygen utilization in the eye area through normalization of cell metabolism using nanocomplex of proteins, sterol and glycoproteins. Dark circles in the skin are reduced via restored blood circulation and capillary permeability, from a special nanocomplex of olygopeptides and bioflavonoids. Eye puffiness is reduced by the use of an nanocomplex that has natural anti-oxidants, bioflavonoids and water-soluble vitamins with their coenzymes. Water retention, which causes fluid retention in the eye area, can be eliminated by the improvement of local blood circulation with a nanocomplex of amino acid derivatives, sterols, cellular enzymes and polypeptides.
It revives skin cell metabolism and reduces signs of aging around the eyes using a specifically formulated nanocomplex of multiple vitamins, anti-free radicals scavengers and enzymes especially selected for addressing the problem eye area. Signs of stress are reduced and the skin of the eye is protected from harsh environmental conditions with the nanocomplex called the “Intermediate Density Lipoproteins”, which consists of bioactive carbohydrates and glycosoaminoglycans, especially for the eye area. Finally, it optimizes cellular energetic balance using a nanocomplex of multiple intra-cellular transmitters specially balanced for addressing the problems of the eye area.
Bionova has many products that are not only perfect as they are but are customized to meet your skincare needs at this moment in time. I have been very happy with the eye cream that I tried out. I noticed a difference in my dark circles (which I used not to have but have been getting due to insomnia) immediately. I am saying within one week my dark circles were gone. Also, the skin around the eye was not dry anymore, as it usually is. This is good because when I wear foundation it shows. My eyes crinkle up and you can see all of the dry skin under them. Ugh. But not anymore! My skin looks and feels soft and smooth.
