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.
There are about 100 trillion cells in the human body and all of them have a similar make up. Each cell is protected by a phospholipid bilayer. The phospholipid bilayer is the major component that forms the cell membrane. It acts as a gate allowing only certain molecules to pass through into the cell.
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.
Osmosis has revolutionized skincare by delivering ingredients into the deep layers of the skin. By coating our ingredients with a liposome called phosphatidylcholine, product penetration is increased by 600%. This liposome shares the same properties with all of our 'coated' cells. When used to coat ingredients, it naturally enhances penetration into the cell as well as protects it during the liposome delivery.
Zinc Finger Technology
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:
Stem Cells and Fibroblasts
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.
