DRSQ Skincare Science

Know more about the amazing ingredients used to create DRSQ Skin Care products.

1- Retinaldehyde (Vitamin A):

  • Works like prescription A without the side effects – outstanding compliancy rate
  • Skins natural storage form of A – non irritating – epidermis not compromised
  • Stored in the fat cell – converted to Retinoic Acid within the skin by just one step- results in increased absorption and prolonged vitamin release
  • Never found in the blood stream – safe during pregnancy
  • Physiologically alters damaged DNA – new cells replicate in healthier state
  • Normalises hyperkeratinisation – reducing congestion in ACNE & ROSACEA sufferers
  • New collagen production at 3 months – creates volume in dermal tissue  
  • Rebuilds damage to structural fibres - plumps scar tissue & lines
  • Compresses distended vessels – damaged vascular network less visible
  • Normalises over active melanocytes – minimising hyperpigmentation
  • Regulates sebaceous activity – reducing oil output
  • Reconditions the skin to manufacture Glycosaminoglycans & NMF’s 

2- Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

  • Repairs barrier function – reducing sensitivity
  • Potent anti-inflammatory – calming atopic skin disorders
  • Inhibits Melanosome transfer to Keratinocyte – normalising hyperpigmentation
  • Maintains surveillance function of Langerhan Cells during UV exposure – reducing tumour formation
  • Regulates moisture levels – over active sebaceous activity slowed – hydration levels restored
  • Delivery mechanism for other nutrients

3- Tetrapeptide 30:
Biomimetic (skin identical) Amino acid sequence
Proline –Lysine – Glutamic Acid – Lysine

  • Active on all kinds of skin types
  •  Visibly diminishes hyperchromatic spots
  •  Brightens skin and improves the evenness of skin tone
  •  Reduces acne lesions
  •  Alleviates melasma on ethnic skin
  •  Provides a significant anti-inflammatory effect
  •  Safely inhibits the pigmentation process without toxicity or rebound effect

4-L-Carnitine: Chirally corrected active increases skin cell turnover & transports fatty acids into the mitochondria assisting energy production. Aids moisture levels & has an exfoliating effect

5- L-Glutathione: Master anti-oxidant, playing an important role in preventing oxidative damage to the skin & its many biological functions by binding to oxidative compounds that damage cell membranes, DNA, and energy production. A tripeptide, consisting of a small protein composed of three amino acids: Cysteine – Glycine - Glutamic acid (or glutamate)

  • Protects mitochondria (power plant of the cell) to reduce apoptosis, final death message to a cell damaged beyond repair. Guarding cells vital energy source
  • Inhibits NF-κ, the master controller of inflammation, blocking the production of most inflammatory cytokines that keep you in a state of constant inflammation, reducing acne, psoriasis, wrinkles, melasma & all age related skin conditions
  • Neutralizes a wide range of oxidants, including superoxide, nitric oxide, carbon radicals, hydroperoxides, peroxynitrites, and lipid peroxides.
  • Low levels of L-Glutathione trigger a cascade that leads to cell injury and death, which accelerates ageing
  • Activates and protects immune cells to strengthen the immunologic function 
  • Associated with skin lightening due its anti-melanogenic properties inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase enzyme in skin cells 
  • Utilises different mechanisms to employ action as a skin whitening agent at various levels of melanogenesis
  • Distorts melanogenesis from the darker eumelanin to the lighter phaeomelanin
  • Noted importance of potent free radical scavenging to negate ROS & heightened response of inflammatory instigated melanin

6-Squalane: Biomimetic lightweight emollient

  • Penetrates deeply to mimics skin’s natural oils & effectively hydrate, offering long term correction to moisture balance. A natural antioxidant that has anti-tumor properties, protecting your skin from carcinogens. Reduces fine lines & wrinkles for a more vibrant, youthful complexion

7-Hyaluronic Acid :

  • Natural Moisturising Factor that attracts + binds up to 1000 X its own weight in moisture 
  • Plumps surface tissue to alleviate dry, thinning skin
  • Assists wound healing + repairs barrier function
  • Inhibits Trans Epidermal Water Loss– essential for atopic skins 

8-Hyaluronic Acid - Ultra Low Weight:

  • Trials indicate a reduction in immune-derived inflammation, improving scaling, erythema & pruritus. Effective Seborrheic Dermatitis Rx
  • Biological activity triggers built-in immune defence mechanisms whilst inducing anti-bacterial responses effectively healing skins epithelium
  • Penetrates  effectively to rebuild + plump deeper layers firming the skins surface
  • Replenishes the hydration factors diminished with ageing + sun damage to mimic youthful levels
9- Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate ( Advanced, stable lipophilic Vitamin C):
  • neutralises free radicals, stimulates collagen, anti-pigment

10- Salix Alba Bark (White Willow) Extract: Potent phytonutrient acts as a natural analgesic to soothe irritation. Effective anti-oxidant & anti-inflammatory with high Saliciln content aids acne, enlarged pores, psoriasis & ezcema

11-CoQ10: Plays an essential role in our biological machinery, producing biological energy (ATP) inside the cells, aiding repair & keeping cells healthy. Also a potent antioxidant, it neutralises harmful free radicals, preventing premature ageing

12- Beta Glucan: potent wound healing ability, applied to skin for treatment of  dermatitis, eczema, wrinkles, bedsores, wounds, burns, diabetic ulcers, and radiation burns

13- Aloe:  Potent anti-inflammatory with wound healing properties

14- Sodium PCA:  Natural Moisturising Factor,  providing long term correction to dehydration

15- Anti-inflammatories: D-alpha-Tocopherol, Alpha Bisabolol, Allantoin, Calendula, Chamomile, Seabuckthorn, Green Tea, Colloidal Oatmeal,

16- SNAP-8 Peptide: Wrinkles are caused overtime due to repeated contraction of the muscle involved in facial expression, SNAP 8 Peptide reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face without the use of needles, let’s learn how.
