BIOPLASMA New Skin Rejuvenation
The New Bioplasma Series
The series is based on ingredients extracted from the ocean and combined with herbal additives enabling the skin to withstand environmental and age related damage.
How do signs of aging form on the skin? Around of the termination of puberty, at approximately 25 years of age, signs of aging begin to appear on the skin as a result of: • At night skin has the ability to self repair as result of damages caused during the day; Cell regeneration is slowed down as layers of the skin stratum are not shed evenly. • Environmental damage that is left untreated accelerates the appearance of aging signs. Melanin spots as an example start to form during childhood when skin without UV protection is exposed to sunlight.
• Stress has a direct influence on skin, inhibiting the essential processes that protects young skin. Stress interferes with the normal brain function on the skin cells. • Skin requires the direct application of vitamins and minerals, as it is the final organ of the body to be nurtured via the blood stream. • Essential energy such as peptides and fatty acids, which activate the cell rejuvenation process, are more easily absorbed through the skin. • Low moisture levels results in dry skin, which if left untreated, becomes wrinkled.

Bioplasma - Treatment Based on Elements from the Sea The Bioplasma line comprises selected natural extracts of plant origin which are responsible for its ability to thrive in extreme conditions. Substances that increase the adaptability of an organism to environmental changes and avoid damage are known as "adaptogens" which balance and treat various symptoms of the skin. These substances function in the skin as natural ingredients to strengthen the immune system and protect the skin. Oleuropein Azelaic Acid NSA-5 Complex Occurs in olive Comprises 5 types of An antibacterial leaves as an algae found naturally in ingredient found in effective anti the North Sea, which barley. oxidant, providing have the ability to store essential energy to high levels of moisture the cells. and survive under harsh conditions.
Bioplasma NSA-5 Complex (Natural Sea Algae) Gigi Laboratories have formulated a new treatment complex comprising a blend of algae indigenous to the North Sea. Algae, a plant of basic structure, excel in surviving under extreme temperature changes and tides. The algae consist of essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and polysaccharides. Applied to the skin, the algae complex introduces a glow and suppleness to the surface. NSA-5 Complex which forms the basis of the series, functions due to its ability to instill a fresh and youthful appearance to the skin. The five algae comprising the NSA-5 Complex : Sahel Scenedesmus - Bioplasma Chondrus Crispus - Gelalg 速 Alaria Esculenta - Kalpariane 速 Algae Extract - Laminarghane 速 Codium Tomentosum - Codiavelane 速
Sahel Scenedesmus-Bioplasma This plankton algae is found in the sandy beaches alongside the Atlantic Ocean, adjacent to the Sahel Desert, which is prone to desert-like weather. The ocean beaches are home to extensive colonies of algae which thrive in these dry climatic conditions. The Scenedesmus Algae are harvested from its natural habitat, transferred to organic pools on the north beach of France. Here it matures and is harvested, utilizing innovative technologies ensuring the preservation of its natural characteristics.
BIOPLASMA - The Main Characteristics Bioplasma, a product of Scenedesmus Algae is essentially the main ingredient in the NSA-Complex, giving the skin the following benefits: • Increased Protein Activity with Reduction in Accumulated Stress Stressed skin results in inflammation and the skin, incapable of maintaining its moisture levels, becomes sensitive and prone to outbreaks, lacking luster and losing its suppleness. • Increased Cell Breathing Function "Breathing Cells" ensure rejuvenation and optimum brain function. • Affording energy (ATP) and encouraging Mitochondrial Activity Cell energy forms the basis for the appearance of younger looking skin, and with the formation of ideal DNA cells, aids the exfoliation of the outer skin layers. • Reduction of Environmental Damage. Algae are rich in anti oxidants due to their need for protection from exposure to strong UV rays when the tides are low. • Breaking Down of Free Radicals. Due to its activity, broken molecules of free radicals are deactivated without any skin damage. • Increased Moisture Levels: Living under desert conditions these algae have a survival mechanism which encourages absorption of moisture from the air.
BIOPLASMA - Technology and Research Algae survive under extreme environmental conditions. As a result of specific technology these qualities have been extracted as the active Bioplasma. Research has shown that: • Plankton has particularly high energy levels* • *Bio-plankton exhibits extremely high SOD (superoxide dismutase) enzyme activity, known for breaking down free radicals into to air and oxygen.* • *Bio-plankton contains enzymes (lipo peroxidation) that break down the free radicals of the damaged fat molecules.** • * The Scenedesmus Algae prevent skin stress. When skin is stimulated with hydrogen peroxide or any other stimulating agent, high concentrations of the "stress protein" are found. Treatment with algae concentrate, inhibits the stress protein, with its side effects of redness, temperature increase and pain. • * Plankton improves metabolism and cellular respiration (which occurs in the mitochondria) vital for the repairing, regenerating and rejuvenating of skin. • * Bio-plankton secrets polysaccharide polymers that prevent skin dryness. These polymers have a particular ability to absorb water, which when measured with a chronometer, showed a skin moisture increase of 18% within two hours and up to 24% in eight hours. * Bioplasma activity on free radicals measured by the EPR method. **Measured using the MDA method recording levels of toxicity to body cells in different substances.

Nas-5 moisture in skin layer depth
Chondrus Crispus - Gelalg速 A red algae (also referred to as "Irish Moss") having a velvety feel, grows near the rocks of the North Sea where vast differences in temperature and pressure occur. This algae has phenomenal survival skills, aided by its content of concentrated polysaccharides (55% of its weight) which creates a protective shell from harsh environmental conditions. Red algae produce a natural occurring material known commercially as GELALG having a gel-like texture, rich in polysaccharides, which form a bond with skin protein in a process known as "biomimicry".
Gelalg - Components The gel ingredients comprising GELALG extracted from North Sea Algae is a component of the NSA-5 complex. Nicknamed "Natural Lifterâ€œ, it excels in instantly firming the skin resulting in a pampering, calming and relaxed feeling during treatments at a Spa. The concentration of polysaccharides, that bond with protein found in skin cells creates a layer of moisture giving the skin a fresh and pleasant feeling.
GELALG - The Main Characteristics • Immediate Skin Firming Effect - This Gel bonds with skin protein on contact (i.e. Collagen and Elastin) and firms by thickening the layers and imbibing the outer layers with moisture.
• Forming a Protective Layer Around the Skin - Moisture comprising polysaccharides form a microscopic cover over the outer skin layer preventing the dispelling of moisture while hydrating the area. The moisturized layer arrests environmental skin damage. • Immediate Moisture Enhancement and Deterring Dryness for Extensive Periods - The Cargin polysaccharide comprising half the weight of the algae, creates a bio-mimetic reaction as the skin absorbs moisture from the air and hydrates the outer layer which affected by weather changes, is the cause of dryness. • Refreshes and Soothes the Skin - Gelalg hydrates the skin, relaxes and neutralizes the effects of stress, resulting in a calming and pleasant state of mind.
Alaria Esculenta - Kalpariane 速 The brown algae growing on rocks on the North Atlantic beaches of Ireland and Britain, withstand total changes in tides and weather.
