This is a new product for general body renewal. The lotion helps renew and protect your skin. The product is somewhat similar to P&R Day Cover but is easier to spread and contains no titanium dioxide.
This is a Skin Biology's product.
Calypso's Oil is a light and soothing body oil that aids skin moisturizing and healing. The oil is built around sweet almond oil, sesame oil and octyl palmitate. In addition, the oil contains mixed natural tocopheryls (alpha, beta, gamma, delta), mixed natural tocotrienols (alpha, beta, gamma, delta), coenzyme Q-10 and 7-keto DHEA.
Diet topically applied tocotrienols selectively accumulate in skin and serve to protect it against ultraviolet damage and oxidation. (Traber et al 1997). In rats it was found that UV radiation reduced significantly vitamin E concentrations after 29 minutes of UV exposure but in skin treated with tocotrienols the vitamin E concentrations were 7 to 30 fold higher after the radiation.
7-keto DHEA is a safer metabolite of regular DHEA. 7-Keto DHEA is one of more than 150 metabolites of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), a precursor hormone that is produced by the adrenal gland and source of many other hormones, including the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. Unlike regular DHEA it is not converted into either estrogens or testosterone but still has DHEA's other beneficial actions.
DHEA aids the skin's superoxide defense and this may explain its ability to prevent skin cancer and papillomas (benign tumors). DHEA also keeps some chemical carcinogens from binding to DNA. According to researchers at the Fels Research Institute and Temple University, cancers just do not started if enough DHEA is present.
Studies show that both DHEA is ready absorbed by skin when applied topically. Topically applied DHEA helps protect the skin's delicate blood vessels. Researchers reported that when DHEA was applied after a serious burn, the blood vessels underlying the burned area are protected and the skin is retained instead of peeling off.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an oxidative reduction agent that functions in the energy-producing electron transfer chain in the mitochondria of cells. CoQ10 also serves as an important lipid-soluble antioxidant in the skin and other organs protecting against free radical damage from peroxides that damage collagen and elastin, which produces a loss of elasticity in the skin and wrinkle formation. Animals fed CoQ10 have lower cancer rates. CoQ-10's discoverer, Dr. Karl Folkers suggested that CoQ10 might control cancer either by facilitating antibody synthesis or by counteracting tumor cell functioning. His ideas were based on case reports of unexpected or unusually long survival for cancer patients who were using CoQ10 for cardiac problems.
Vitamin A/Retinol helps to remove wrinkles but mainly by reducing collagen/elastin degradation. A protein complex called AP-1 produces the enzymes that break apart and degrade collagen and elastin, the major structural materials in skin. While a balance of biosynthesis and breakdown is essential for healthy skin, as we age, the balance is shifted toward excessive breakdown and harmful biochemical changes.
Calypso's Oil also comes in versions with added pure essential fragrant oils and resins such as lavender, jasmine, ylang ylang, sandalwood, asian oud and pheromones. Lavender soothes the skin, reduces pain and aids relaxation. Jasmine, ylang ylang, sandalwood, oud and pheromone SB-74 have been used for thousands of years to increase interpersonal attraction, have mild aphrodisiac qualities and increase interpersonal bonding.
Pheromone scientists have said that mammals think through their noses. Virtually all organisms, from yeast, to insects to humans produce volatile smelly pheromones that act as sexual magnets and send other messages such a dominance or fear. Pheromones are substances secreted one animal that cause some behavioral response in a second animal.
Pheromones are primarily present in the skin and the glands of skin, in saliva, urine, and vaginal liquids. (Cohn 1994)
Pheromone SB-74 is a natural oil product developed by Skin Biology. It was developed during a search for mood enhancers that would improve inter-personal feelings but it is not an aphrodisiac like jasmine or ylang ylang. SB-74 seems to generate positive feelings and increased bonding. Users say it increases friendliness, warmth, affability, fondness, pleasantness, geniality charm, affection and sociability. We have added it to our mood enhancing oils because of its very positive actions.
