As a freelance writer for a skin care blog, I write about hundreds of products every month. Literally. My job is to write short reviews on products, highlighting the key ingredients and how they can benefit the skin. Often, I come across the same ingredients over and over.
While these are all excellent ingredients that can offer many benefits to the skin, there are SO many products on the market using these same ingredients like everyone else, but just with different branding (and often ridiculously high prices).
Which is why I was pretty excited when I recently came across an anti-aging skin care product that had a pretty impressive ingredient list: FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum.
According to the brand, FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum “strengthens and increases the skin’s firmness while the advanced stem cell technologies help to preserve youthfulness. Through this preservation, the skin is energized and protected, helping to hydrate the skin and give a youthful appearance.”
I really do believe FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum can offer you these benefits based on the unique ingredients.
For instance, FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum features PhytoCellTec nunatak (Saponaria pumila root cell extract). PhytoCellTec nunatak is the first active ingredient that is based on Saponaria pumila, a rare flower that survived the last ice age in the Alps. It protects and vitalizes dermal stem cells, re-densifies the skin, fortifies skin's self-defense activities, and enhances the smooth appearance of the skin, even when it is exposed to the sun.
Another innovative ingredient in the FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum is Neodermyl (copper lysinate/prolinate). Unlike other anti-aging ingredients, Neodermyl readily absorbs into the deep layers of skin, directly targets fibroblasts, and triggers the essential elements needed to reactivate collagen and elastin. Plus, Neodermyl works fast, demonstrating high clinical efficacy within 15 days, resulting in visible reduction of deep wrinkles and improvement of skin firmness. FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum also features the peptide acetyl hexapeptide-51, which has been shown to mimic the activity of the transcriptional factor FOXO3a. Younger, healthy skin responds to damaged DNA by stimulating FOXO3. Since acetyl hexapeptide-51 can mimic FOXO3a activity, this ingredient helps repair daily skin damage, as well as rejuvenate skin cells for a younger appearance. Lastly, FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum contains melanin, a light-absorbing ingredient that shields skin from HEV (blue) light, which may cause premature aging.
One drawback of the FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum is the volatile fragrance components, including limonene, linalool, and hexyl cinnamal. These ingredients have the potential to cause allergic reactions and/or skin irritation. These ingredients are present in very low concentrations, but it is something to keep in mind.
Overall, FIXMD Longevity Cell Serum truly contains novel ingredients that have been clinically proven to provide multiple anti-aging benefits.
