Stretch marks result when the skin's collagen and elastin fibres are literally stretched to breaking point, and are caused when the skin is called upon to stretch while hormones are out of balance, e.g: pregnancy,puberty (rapid growth), body builders using steroids or steroid-type hormones released from your own adrenal cortex during these stressful periods on the body.
Elastin in the dermis enables the skin to snap back easily, and Collagen gives skin its strength, in order to keep it from stretching or sagging too much. Both fibres are extremely vulnerable to the sun's ultra-violet rays, which destroy them. Skin care products that contain collagen and elastin usually can not restore these fibres because their molecules are too large to pass through the skin's horny layer. So using collagen creams after a "sanding" massage to get rid of rough skin on the surface will not help your skin regenerate quickly.
As Elicina! containts glycolic acid (which is found in the snail's secretion) it is able to penetrate through the cell walls by virtue of its small molecular size and it also keeps the hair follicles open, carrying into them the skin repair bio-available ingredients contained in the snail's secretion, namely allantoin, collagen, elastin, proteins and vitamins.
Thus Elicina! unlike other creams contains elastin and collagen molecules which penetrates within the skin follicles, which is carried in by the glycolic acid which is combined in the snails' slime. Collagen and elastin will help in the process of regenerating your damaged skin by quickly restoring the water holding properties of healthy skin. Once inside the follicle allantoin and amino acid chains (peptides and proteins) within Elicina! will trigger and accelerate the formation of new elastic cells, collagen and pigment, filling in stretch mark cavities. It will also shrink and replace the old fibrous and damaged collagen
To prevent and repair stretch marks use Elicina twice a day on affected areas or parts of your body that are vulnerable to stretch marks.
