Whether it’s wrinkles, hollowness, discolouration or puffiness, the skin around the eyes shows signs of ageing before any other part of the body. There is a common misconception that the products you use on the rest of the face will work just fine on the delicate eye area too. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The skin around the eyes is fragile and especially vulnerable to external aggressors like UV exposure and pollution. To repair damage and slow down the ageing process, you need a powerful, targetted treatment.
What makes the eyes more vulnerable to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors of ageing?
The skin is very thin and has a sparse fat layer – because of that, collagen and elastin (the proteins that give skin strength and firmness) are more prone to degradation caused by sun and pollution exposure.
Muscular subsidence and microcirculation decline – the muscles that squeeze the eyelids shut decrease in strength with age and that leads to sagging and deep creases.
Anatomical peculiarity – the skin around the eyes covers the hollow space of the eye socket. As we age, the bony orbit of the eye changes in structure; the skin caves in, giving the eyes a sunken and darkened appearance.
Powered by ZO Skin Health innovative skin restoration technology, Growth Factor Eye Serum targets the appearance of deep eye wrinkles, crease formation, hollowness and microcirculation decline.
The formula combines enzymatic and plant-derived growth factors that invigorate skin’s natural restorative mechanisms and deliver targetted treatment for the eye’s unique vulnerabilities.
Neuropeptide – improves the appearance of expression lines and smooths out wrinkles.
Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate – provides an instant boost in hydration and plumpness.
Growth factors – stimulate the production of type 1 collagen, increase fibroblast division and enhance skin density.
ZPRO antioxidant complex – increases hyaluronan contents in the skin which, in return, boosts collagen and hyaluronic acid production.
Growth Factor Eye Serum is suitable for all skin types and can be added to your skincare regime morning or evening as a targeted eye treatment.
The formula offers a unique blend of fast-acting and long-term correction ingredients; neuropeptides and sodium hyaluronate provide instant hydration boost and smooth out fine lines, while growth factors and antioxidants work within the deep layers of the skin to improve density and stimulate collagen production. It comes with a cooling applicator that makes it easy to apply just the right amount of product and can be used to alleviate swelling and puffiness.
