Anti-aging skin care has become so advanced in recent years, but some of the best skin care brands seem to have stepped back in time (and away from reality), with ingredients like “Dragon’s blood” and “Snake venom” on their labels. According to scientific research and customer testimonials, though, the effectiveness of these ingredients in the battle against wrinkles is no myth.
The ingredients in question have alarming names that not only get the customer’s attention, but they actually relate to their formulas. The first ingredient, Synake, is a synthetic substance that mimics part of a polypeptide found in the venom of a Temple Viper. The Viper’s venom paralyzes its victim by blocking neuromuscular communication, which forces all muscles to relax.
Possessing a talent for seeing the bright side of anything, scientists realized this substance could be re-created in a lab and altered to be of use to us in the fight against aging. Synake is now found in many products that are coined as a less extreme alternative to Botox. As if snake charming isn’t intriguing enough for the average buyer, the slaying of a mythical fire breathing creature has sure turned some heads. From a fatal bite to a fabled beast, Dragon’s Blood is a dark red resin that ‘bleeds’ from the Croton Lechleri Tree found in the Peruvian Amazon Rain Forest.
It has been used for years by native people to heal and treat severely damaged skin. It helps the skin restore itself by accelerating the natural rate of cellular regeneration, which reveals the new, healthier skin beneath the damaged layer. It has received great reviews for the treatment of age spots, sun spots and other visible signs of aging. Always ahead of the game with not only fascinating product names, but formulas that really work, Peter Thomas Roth has bottled up these legendary ingredients with the addition of Dragon’s Blood Damaged Skin CPR and Un-Wrinkle Eye to his line. His quest to find effective products from around the world may have taken him to dragon’s dens, and back again, but the quality and effectiveness of his skin care product line is anything but a fairy tale.
