Atelocream MC2 – Biomimetic Liquid Crystal Cream

FB_IMG_1494161816790

The latest addition to Atelo series from Colway which makes a beautiful finishing touch to Atelo anti-aging skincare.

Smart liquid crystal base has been enriched with biomimetic active substances and all three types of native collagen: atelocollagen, tropocollagen and procollagen.

It is the first cream in the world to combine three breakthroughs in one product:

  • biomimetics
  • liquid crystal system
  • atelocollagen

Exceptionally light and sleek oleosom base structure of the cream is perfectly compatible with the skin physiology. Thanks to liquid crystal combination of emulsifier/emollient of base components, biomimetic active ingredients work much more effectively than in regular creams. Therefore, biomimetic active ingredients and three types of collagen along with the portions of energy are released gradually in a controlled way and in extensive time, which minimizes the effect of uncontrolled stimulation of fibroblasts and counteracts the accelerated death of cells caused by the Hayflick limit.

Active ingredients:

  • atelocollagen
  • procollagen
  • polypeptides (arginine, lysine)
  • collagen amino acids
  • piperine
  • ginseng extract (Panax ginseng root extract)
  • açai extract (Euterpe oleracea fruit extract).

Biomimetic action of Atelocream’s raw materials means acting as a “lamellar promoter” which significantly improves moisturizing properties, as lamellar structures resemble lipids found in the skin. Atelocream eliminates wrinkles in the stratum corneum, nourishes and moisturizes.

Tetrahydropiperine (THP) contained in the cream is a stabilized derivative of piperine alkaloids derived from black peppercorns, which enhances skin penetration.

Atelocream MC2 balances energy losses through waking up and strengthening of cellular metabolism daily.

Atelocream MC2 helps stressed and tired skin which is vulnerable to the environment and ever-increasing pace of life. Thanks to the new oleosomal liquid crystal base, nutrients are being absorbed throughout 24 hours a day! Its 24-hour action will make your skin perfect when awake, even after a bad night’s sleep.

Effects:

  • energizing
  • regenerating
  • nourishing
  • anti-ageing (eliminates wrinkles in the stratum corneum)
  • firming
  • prevent the loss of skin elasticity
  • moisturising
  • illuminating (reduces signs of fatigue)

How to use and advice:

Apply in the morning on the clean skin of face, neck and neckline, gently rubbing. In the case of stressed, very tired skin you can additionally apply in the evening, after cleaning the skin.

Suitable for all skin types. Especially recommended for skin care of face, neck and neckline with the first wrinkles and signs of fatigue and aging, as well as uneven colour.
Perfect as a make-up base.

NEW! Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate

koncentrat

This is a brand new product by Colway International, which has just been released to the market today!

The package holds 7 x 3ml ampoules of high-molecular hyaluronic acid, natural Ecocert-approved Zemea® component, silk, copper peptide and DNA and RNA acids. It’s ideal for the care of dry, mature or tired complexion and it has strong anti-aging and anti-wrinkle effects .

Active Ingredients:

Nucleic acids DNA + RNA (native) – These initiate skin structure replication, activate cells, and have a strong antioxidant effect, protecting cells against reactive oxygen species and filtering out toxins. They expand peripheral vessels and restore circulation patency, thereby oxygenating cells and improving metabolism of lipids.

Copper peptide GHK-Cu – Composed of a copper particle and amino acids such as glycine, L-histidine, and L-lysine. Copper peptide stimulates the functioning of stem cells, increases production of collagen in the skin, prevents photo-aging, improves elasticity and evens skin tone. It also helps reduce wrinkles, and increases the skin’s density and thickness.

Hyaluronic acid LMW – Has a highly moisturizing effect and helps fill wrinkles. Contributes in rebuilding damaged epidermis, creates a protective film on the skin to prevent moisture loss, smoothes, firms and improves skin elasticity.

Silk – A luxurious ingredient that hydrates, smoothes and leaves the skin feeling soft to the touch. Silk is primarily composed of two proteins: fibroin (approx. 70%) and sericin (30%), the chemical composition of which share a great similarity to the protein in human skin and hair. Fibroin has the ability to bind and retain water without causing skin irritation, even in sensitive skin. Sericin (silk glue) is a protein that holds silk’s natural fibroin fibres together. It contains residues of serine, glycine, and aspartic acid. Sericin improves the epidermal barrier by reducing water loss through the skin, and is therefore considered a ‘natural skin moisturizer’. It creates a delicate layer on the skin’s surface, allowing the skin to breathe and making it feel velvety-smooth. Thanks to its structure and chemical composition, sericin can improve skin hydration. Furthermore, sericin also shows considerable smoothing properties, thereby reducing irregularities of the skin.

Zemea® – A plant glycol obtained from corn grains that provides great moisturisation. This very delicate, Ecocert-approved component is allergy-free, irritation-free, and has antibacterial properties.

Body scrubs – my winner!

scrub

Perhaps it will sound strange but I’ve actually never tried a body scrub before. Sometimes I used a face peeling for the whole body instead, but never a scrub. But you see, I have that habit that whenever my company introduces a new product, I have to test it first on my own skin, before I start recommending it to others. And that’s how I got to use a body scrub for the first time 😀

At the same time, coincidentally, I got a different scrub as a gift from my friend so I was testing both more or less at the same time. Also Colway International had one in their offer, so in the end I was testing THREE!!! 😀 One after another. All of them are rich in  very beneficial high quality oils and the skin felt amazing after application. What I loved most in all of them, was the fact that I didn’t have to apply a body lotion after taking a shower and the skin was silky soft in touch but it wasn’t oily at the same time.

I’ve tested these products:

At first, the choice was really hard. As I mentioned earlier all of those scrubs gave similar effects, all of them worked great as skin peelers and I liked the feeling of my skin afterwards. So lets have a closer look at each of them.

Purite scrub comes in a large glass jar (250ml), which is a big advantage, although you better don’t drop it in your bath, so be careful, it’s quite heavy. But I love the list of ingredients:

large_scrub-limon-sklep

  • Dead Sea salt
  • Sea Salt
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Avocado Oil
  • Green French clay
  • Lime Oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Mica

The smell is also gorgeous, very refreshing and pleasant. I loved it! Also you can choose among 4 different types of body scrubs from their shop, and I’m sure each one will give you a different but equally pleasurable sensation. Cost: €18.00 (250ml).

Colway International has recently improved their Body Scrub formula. It comes in a flat plastic jar (200ml). The list of active ingredients is a bit different here (instead of salt as a peeling ingredient, we have sugar!):

CI_bodyscrub

  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Mango Butter
  • Extract of Bladderwrack
  • Sugar Cane

And as you can expect, the smell of this scrub is quite sweet. I can’t really get that smell although it says it’s raspberry-mint… Hmm… I have to test it again, perhaps it’s the new formula and the sensation will be a bit different. This scrub felt a bit heavy to me. Perhaps it’s the impression that I’m rubbing sugar into my skin, I don’t know 😉 but I also thought that, compared to the other two, this one seemed the “oiliest” of all. But the final sensation was also cool. There was no “wow” effect, but the scrub was doing its job perfectly. Cost: €42.95 (200ml) but you can get it 10% cheaper as a registered customer or 40% cheaper (so for €25.77) if you are a Partner of Colway International.

Colway Collagen Body Scrub is quite a new product by this company. And I think it is still rather underestimated. When I first tested it I was absolutely blown away! But slowly… So it comes in a very simple plastic jar (250ml) and the list of active ingredients looks like that:

scrub

  • Fukus Vesiculosus (brown algae)
  • Ivy
  • Guarana
  • Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium)
  • Rosemary
  • Argan Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Shea Butter (Karite)
  • Allantoin
  • Collagen
  • Vitamin E
  • Ground Cranberry Beans

What I love most in here? The smell and those cute little cranberry beans! But seriously, the smell is so captivating, that using this scrub is pure pleasure. I don’t know what kind of fragrance they added to this product, but can honestly say that I’m totally addicted. I can’t even describe it. It’s one of those products that you have to try for yourself to understand what I’m talking about. It’s a real experience! The skin afterwards is soft and moisturised, and it gets that fab silky gloss when you pat dry it with a towel. Besides it lasts! 😀 Cost: €35.00 (200ml) or 20% cheaper if you are a registered customer, or 42% cheaper (so €20.30) if you are a Manager of Colway.

Now, if I were to give an objective opinion… I know how it sounds… I’ve been with Colway for the past 5 years!… But seriously, I’m past that phase when you are trying to sell something no matter what (actually when I think about it, I’ve never had that phase… hmm… ) Well, so, believe it or not, but this IS an objective opinion. The winner to me is the Colway Collagen Body Scrub. Why? Because it gave me that “WOW” sensation and I loved my skin most after using this product. And also, because I’ve had a rather long break since I last used any of those scrubs, and I was thinking about it recently, and guess which one came to my mind first? Yep! Exactly. So the choice is obvious.

  1. Colway Collagen Body Scrub
  2. Purite Salt Lime Peel Scrub
  3. Colway International Body Scrub

Now, whether you base your choice on price, or ingredients, or the sensation the use of the product gives you, you can decide by yourself. All three will work great on your skin, leaving it silky soft in touch, perfectly moisturised and enriched with beneficial plant ingredients and vitamins. And you can forget about the body lotion afterwards. You don’t have to worry that your clothes will get oily (I had that fear myself before the first use), they won’t. And I ensure you, once you try an oil-based body scrub, you won’t want anything else!

XShot – what is it?

How many cups of coffee do you drink a day?

Is your energy level usually low?

Do you suffer from tiredness, fatigue?

Are you sleepy and weak even though you seem to have enough sleep?

If those problems seem quite familiar to you, welcome in my world!  One might say this is due to spring or summer solstice – I keep explaining this to myself in this way. But hey, we still need to function somehow during the day, right? So how do you help yourself survive that? Do you drink coffee, like I do? Do you take naps, like I do? Do you take it easy, go to bed early enough and sleep long enough (well… I definitely need to work on that part still…).

So here. Colway International has come up with this brilliant idea to help us a bit in a natural way. Instead of drinking gallons of coffee or some kind of energy boosting drinks full of artificial sweeteners and very often also some unhealthy stuff… we have now that “XShot” which is a natural substitute for energy drinks.

PSX_20170503_145031

And guess what? I just bought mine and it arrived YESTERDAY! I’m sooo happy 😀 I’m gonna try it when I feel low.

It comes in a nice pack of 10 little bottles.

PSX_20170503_145203

PSX_20170503_145138

And each bottle is a cherry flavoured liquid which contains a combination of vitamins, minerals and plant extracts selected to reduce tiredness and fatigue, as well as to support normal energy metabolism (vitamin B12). It is composed of 16 ingredients supporting the body’s own natural energy production mechanism.

WHO IS XShot FOR?

• Anyone who needs a burst of energy
• Anyone with an active lifestyle, practising sports and controlling their weight
• Regular gym members – as an alternative to synthetic glucose shots
• Frequent travellers on business trips by car, or anyone spending long hours behind the wheel
• Anyone working or studying for long hours – when an extra dose of energy and concentration is required
• As a healthy substitute for people drinking large amounts of coffee, which is well known for its acidifying effect

The list of ingredients is quite impressive. Have a look:

PSX_20170503_145248

You can find detailed description of those active ingredients HERE.

It is recommended to drink one shot a day with a meal. I think it’s a perfect product for days like this, when you feel drained of energy but you need to maintain life somehow. It sounds like a perfect solution for me personally cause I exercise a lot a have quite a busy lifestyle. I’m gonna give it a go! 🙂

Of course please remember that it’s always worth to have some tests done. Constant lack of energy might be a signal that something is not right in our organism so it’s good to consult your health condition with a specialist.

Would you try it? How do you help yourself  when your energy level drops down? What do you do? Coffee? Energy drinks? hmm… Let me know in a comment below.

Amygdalin – cancer cure or poison?

amigdalina-2What is it?

Amygdalin is a compound of natural origin, which is classified as glycoside. Quite significant amounts of it are found in seeds of almonds, quinces, peaches, apricots and cherries. It is this particular substance that is responsible for their bitter taste.

As a result of different processes taking place in the human body, it breaks down into glucose, benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide.

Some history behind it.

This compound was isolated by French chemists in the middle of the 19th century.

The widespread interest in amygdalin has its roots back in the 1920s, when Dr. Ernst Theodore Krebs described it as a panacea for cancer. At the same time, he emphasized that this glycoside had toxic properties, which prevented it from being used. According to Krebs, the lack of amygdalin, or not enough of this compound in the body, is the cause of cancer. On the other hand, when introduced to the body, and as a result of its breakdown through the cyanogenic glycoside beta glycosidase into hydrogen cyanide, it was expected to destroy the tumour cells.

Research on this organic compound was continued by Ernest’s son. He managed to develop a derivative of amygdalin, which toxicity was to be significantly smaller. He called it Laetrile, and its main compound was also amygdalin, its derivative – to be exact, the so-called almond acid nitrile glucuronide. However, due to the intervention of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Laetrile was withdrawn from the market. Their decision was due to the fact that this preparation had, in spite of all, a high probability of cyanide poisoning. The favourable conditions for this effect resulted in vitamin C supplementation. Moreover, the FDA justified its decision by the lack of scientific evidence on the suitability of this preparation.

In the next step, vitamin B17 was born, which is the latest form of amygdalin.

b17

Amygdalin nowadays.

How do researchers refer to amygdalin now? Do they confirm Krebs’s hypothesis?

As advocates emphasize, the hydrogen cyanide, commonly regarded as poisonous, is being released only in tumour cells. At the same time they add that healthy cells of the body are not affected during this therapy, which results from the fact that the body’s cells are equipped with a special enzyme, which is called rhodanase. It is thanks to this enzyme that it is impossible for the hydrocyanic acid to be released. On the contrary, tumour cells are not equipped with this enzyme. Proponents of amygdalin therapy emphasize the ability of destroying “diseased” cells, with the result of reducing tumours and preventing metastasis. In addition, they also observe the ability to ease pain, which is interpreted by the penetration of cancerous benzaldehyde molecules released from cancer cells. They reach the “healthy” cells where they are oxidized to benzoic acid, which has an analgesic effect.

In Mexico amygdalin is not only regarded as a drug of this type, but as a highly effective anti-cancer prophylaxis. Moreover, to this day, this compound can be purchased in many herbal stores. It can be bought in the form of bitter almonds or apricot kernels.

Opponents often emphasize that the results of research that prove that the level of beta glucosidase found in cancer cells is insufficient. What is more, amygdalin is one of the compounds that is not easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, thus leading to the hypothesis that the chances of reaching the cancer cells are very low.

In summary, it is worth emphasizing that so far, many independent studies have been carried out towards the effectiveness of amygdalin. However, there are no existing scientific circles that would justify its use in the fight against cancer. This does not reduce the interest in this glycoside. Is that why it was called “vitamin” at the time, and many people keep going back to Krebs’s discovery? Perhaps that is why still many people, especially critics of chemo and radiotherapy – consider amygdalin as unconventional panacea for cancer.

The real medical facts are that apricot kernel oil extracted in supercritical state with carbon dioxide, attains saturation with laetril (vitamin B17) at a level that American legislation recognizes as being poisonous at a dose of 10 mg, in such oil. At the same time, prominent American oncologists duplicating the methods of the world-famous Oasis of Hope Hospital (see http://www.oasisofhope.com/cancer-treatments-therapies/laetrile/) are opening another treatment facilities in Mexico where cancer is being treated with this oil.

The therapeutic evidence of Mexican hospitals is more than promising. It seems that there is an increasing awareness of the fact that for a certain group of patients the laetril therapy may be less risky than chemotherapy.

In Europe, you can still easily buy both apricot kernels and apricot kernel oil. Extracted in supercritical state, it is available only in one product currently available on the market. How long will it still be available? We do not know…

Amazing properties of Shea Butter

Shea butter is an aromatic fat obtained from Karite tree seeds which occur naturally in the dry African savanna, from Senegal to Ethiopia. The tree begins to bear fruit only after 30-40 years. Therefore, there is very few plantations. Typically, Shea butter is extracted from wild plants.

It is widely used in Africa, not only as edible fats. It is used without admixtures as an ointment against stretch marks and in baby skin care, for massage of aching muscles and as a treatment for skin irritations. Shea butter is also a natural conditioner for dry, friable, split hair.

Ultra-Moisturizing Collagen Body BalmIt moisturizes and oils the skin well. It is rich in important nutrients, vitamins and other phytonutrients with therapeutic properties. Derivatives of cinnamon acid have a huge influence over the properties of this butter. These compounds have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and even prevent the development of cancer. Especially high amount of vitamins A, E and F in Shea butter provides the skin with essential ingredients needed to maintain smoothness, firmness and healthy radiant colour. The use of Shea Butter accelerates the process of healing wounds, irritations and inflammatory conditions of sunburn. It does not cause allergy. It is perfectly tolerated by all skin types because the combination of fatty acids contained in it, resembles the composition of the stratum corneum.

It contains the following active substances:
• Saturated fatty acids such as:
Palmitic acid (2-6%) and stearic acid (35-45%).
• Unsaturated fatty acids such as:
Oleic acid (40-50%) and linoleic (4-10%).
• Polyphenols such as:
Gallic acid, gallatanine, quercetin, trans cinnamic acid.

Thanks to its properties it is gaining popularity in cosmetology. It is used as an ingredient in the production of creams, lotions, make-up cosmetics, sunblocks, shampoos and cleansing gels.

Shea butter is a component of the Ultra-Moisturising Collagen Body Lotion, where carefully selected ingredients perfectly restore the comfort of dry and even very dry skin. They soothe irritations, eliminate discomfort of skin tightening and peeling of the skin. The skin becomes smoother, soft and enveloped by a pleasant feeling of comfort.

Trust the results of application research and use this amazing product that will help you take care of your whole body.
