The SkinMedica® aesthetic product line is based on the science of the skin’s own healing abilities. As skin ages, elasticity decreases, lines appear and overall appearance is diminished. To counteract the effects of time, our skin care products contain restorative ingredients that work below the skin’s surface to regenerate the health of the skin.
Skinmedica products use scientifically proven recovery compounds, including essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol. The patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins are what make Skinmedica such an unbelievable product. Skinmedica reduces fine lines, fades age spots and discoloration, and improves the texture and elasticity of your skin.

Stem Cells and Fibroblasts
Osmosis is one of the most scientifically advanced skincare lines available. This is not just because of our remarkable technology, but also the fact that our exclusive patented approach works in partnership with the skin.
One of the most critical aspects of the process of skin rejuvenation is picking the right target. Our ability to address the source of skin conditions is what sets us apart. This is where "holistic therapies rooted in science" was born. Osmosis treats the body as a whole because we understand the connection between the skin and other organs as well as immune system health. Our bodies operate as one unit and it is not efficient or effective to damage or interfere with one aspect of cellular health in order to make gains elsewhere.
FACT:95% of skincare does not penetrate into the deep layers of the epidermis or dermis. The dermis is where the majority of aging and skin conditions occur. Because of this, deep absorption is critical for true skin transformation.
What is a Zinc Finger?Zinc Fingers are used by all cells in the repair and formation of DNA, RNA, and proteins. They are composed of an atom of zinc that holds two loops of protein together to form a 'finger'. Zinc finger proteins have many potential uses.
What is Zinc Finger Technology?Zinc Finger Technology utilizes the key components of zinc fingers that encourage their formation and activation in the skin. This results in increased DNA repair and wound healing.
How is it Used?Osmosis uses zinc fingers to aid in the repair of damaged DNA by 'turning on' the repair gene so the damage can be 'cut' out. Key ingredients in Osmosis' DNA Repair Serums help facilitate this process. Repairing damaged DNA impacts several aspects of skin health including:
- Rebuild Collagen
- Provide Sun Protection
- Pigment Control and Normalization
- Prevent Scarring
- Heal 'Broken' Capillaries
- Heal the Skin
1. DNA is damaged by the sun.
2. Zinc fingers cut out damage.
3. DNA is repaired.
What are the roles of stem cells and fibroblasts in skincare?Stem cells are pluripotent which means they have the ability to become any other type of cell. Human-derived stem cells can come from fetuses, chord blood, or adult adipose tissue. Osmosis preferes to utilize the adult sources because it is the most ethical. Stem cells are not typically used in skincare because no one would want someone else's cells rubbed into their skin. However, some people do use their own stem cells in certain procedures like facelifts with positive results. Fibroblasts are only used as a source of growth factors. Osmosis combines stem cells and fibroblasts in a medium so that the stem cells can be encouraged to make growth factors similar to fibroblasts. Without that influence, stem cells don't necessarily make growth factors. The combination is the most powerful way to encourage the most complete growth factor population.
What are growth factors?Growth factors are procuded by the body to control growth, division, and maturation of cells. They are what regulate the division and the production of cells.
What makes Osmosis' growth factor serum unique?Beyond having higher numbers and a more complete collection of growth factors that result from combining fibroblasts and stem cells, we have evolved our growth factors. This means we have perfected a way to complete the growth factor manufacturing process by creating exosomes. Exosomes are protective envelopes that surround each growth factor allowing it to have a longer life, better penetration, and more activation at the receptor site.
What do growth factors do when used in skincare?When growth factors are utilized in products, they have two major benefits: protect the skin and stimulate growth of new cells. The growth factors that are secreted from adult human stem cells benefit all skin conditions.
Why do we choose to use growth factors?We choose to use growth factors because we can obtain hundreds of them from stem cells and when applied topically to the skin, we can encourage multiple cell type growth to repair and replace damaged cells.

What is the Blue Onyx?
The human body relies on the continuous flow of electromagnetic signals in order to function. Without electricity and magnetism – the realm in which the visible universe resides – life cannot be sustained. The nervous system can be likened to a complex electrical network with multitudes of inputs and outputs.Although there are differences between how the nerves transmit electricity versus copper wires used in electrical circuits, the basic premise is the same: a command is initiated from a central location (the brain), it is translated into an electrical signal travelling down the neural pathways (spinal cord), and it arrives at a destination to perform the desired task (e.g. contract a muscle). Unlike man-made electrical circuits, the human body transmits signals utilizing both electrons and chemicals. Each electrical pathway has a number of junctions in which electrical current is translated into chemical transmission, and then back to electron transmission. As we age, neurochemical transmitters and receptors deteriorate and do not perform as efficiently. The consequences are both internal and external (organ functions are reduced, visible signs of aging become apparent, etc.).
Electricity also works at a different level within each individual cell. Ions such as Sodium, Potassium, Chlorine, and Calcium play a crucial role in keeping cells alive. The concentration of these ions inside and outside each cell results in an electric charge called “membrane potential,” referring to the voltage potential across the cell membrane. Each cell is essentially like a miniature battery that typically maintains 70 millivolts of electricity.
There is a special group of cells (nerve cells) that are capable of “transmitting” the membrane potential to adjacent cells, thus providing the mechanism for propagating the electrical signal from one end of the nerve to the other. This phenomenon is called “action potential.” Action potentials are due to rapid exchange between intracellular and extracellular ions, while the voltage potential in each nerve cell affects the neighboring cell. All cell membranes have multiple channels or gates that allow the flow of ions in and out of the cell. As we age, the ionic transport across cell membrane diminishes, and this in turn affects one’s health.
TAMA’s Blue Onyx produces subtle levels of electromagnetic waves that reside on the surface of the skin. The energy field around the probe tips normalizes the magnetic distribution around each cell, facilitating a better ionic exchange that may have become disrupted due to aging. The goal is to allow the body to heal itself and find its optimum balance, similar to the effects produced by massaging the tissue, but more accurate.
