Chirality ensures your skin can have more effective, purer, safer ingredients penetrating deeper.
The skin, which is the body’s largest organ, has millions of chiral receptors; they are on every single cell.
These receptors can be affected by what you put on your skin, so if a substance is foreign (a nasty chemical) to the receptor, your skin may be irritated and become red and dry. Unknowingly, you will be increasing the inflammation deep in your skin, and thereby the rate your skin is aging. It is an important part of your anti-aging regime to avoid certain chemicals in your skin care products, and if you are wise enough to choose chirally correct products, you will be enhancing the benefits your cells receive from each and every ingredient and only doing good.
How will my skin actually benefit though?
You will have healthier, plumper, more hydrated, younger-looking and problem-free skin because at the right level in your skin the right ingredients will be able to provide:
- increased antioxidant protection (the goodies)
- an increased rate of cellular renewal
- an increase in collagen and elastin
- an increase in cell function and skin efficiency
- a reduction in free radical formation (the baddies)
This is why The Skin Care Clinic only sells chirally corrected products with no known nasties or plant-based preservatives, and fragrance free.
In a nutshell, chirality is where the cell molecule moves to the left or the right in a natural “spin”, which every cell in your body does all the time, so the ingredients need to match this spin.
Chiral correction is a process where ingredients are purified so that your cell molecules will spin the right way to be accepted by the receptor on the cell.
- an increase in recognition by the body
- an increase in function at a cellular level
- a decrease in irritation and side effects
If ingredients reach cell receptors with the wrong spin, the message can be blocked, incomplete or inaccurate. The cell then has to use excess energy to understand and “deal with” the ingredient, and it is this which may cause irritation and a lack of change in the skin being treated.
Ingredients in most skin care products are a 50/50 combination of the left and right spin. L-ascorbic acid (left-spinning Vitamin C) for example has been proven to be more effective and less irritating than D-ascorbic acid (the right-spinning Vitamin C) or plain (50/50) ascorbic acid.
Not every molecule used in everyday skin care is chirally correct. This means that sometimes the correct key is not being used and “reactions” or “side effects” can be experienced, or there is no effect seen at all.
The Skin Care Clinic only sells chirally correct products, ensuring that your skin has the purest, safest, most efficient ingredients possible.
The proof of the benefits of chirally correct skin care can be seen in the results, as they are more active but less irritating.
Why doesn’t everyone use chirally correct products?
Making them is more time-consuming and difficult, so most mainstream products do not do this.
