The Mother Of Skin

This beautiful hydrating milk addresses all (not just some) of skin’s most pressing concerns. Think of it as a mother for your skin. Like a mother, it protects, provides and comforts when nothing else will do.

Fiercely Protective

Potentci contains an extremely powerful antioxidant complex that marries Nature and Science. The primary antioxidants are Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline (DPHP) and Dimethylmethoxy Chromanol (DMMC). Together, these antioxidants provide multiple times the protection of natural antioxidants like Vitamin C and E, plus are much more stable.

DPHP has the additional benefit of helping to firm and restore plumpness to the skin by stimulating the contraction of collagen fibers. It is a known wrinkle corrector and plumping agent.

DMMC is extremely valuable because of its broad spectrum protection capabilities. While most antioxidants only protect against oxygen (21% of the atmosphere) free radicals, DMMC provides antioxidant protection against nitrogen (78% of the atmosphere) free radicals and lipid peroxidation as well.

Antioxidants are a key aspect of any “mother” moisturizer because free radicals are the primary source of aging, and the two biggest sources of free radicals are impossible to avoid: UV radiation and pollution.

Antioxidants are powerful anti-inflammatories as well, because free radicals cause significant inflammation on a cellular level.

Hydration Technology

Mothers care for us and meet all our needs.

Skin absolutely needs moisture. It is crucial to proper enzyme function. In fact, without proper intra-cellular water hydration, skin’s desquamation enzymes cannot function and the skin gets dull and congested. Lack of hydric moisture is a little-known but very common contributor to chronic skin congestion.

Potentci is carefully formulated to provide a sophisticated balance of lipidic and hydric moisture. It restores and fortifies the skin barrier’s lipid matrix with ceramides and cholesterol. It helps the skin strengthen its own water retention and barrier capabilities with niacinamide and glucosamine.

The niacinamide/glucosamine complex aids with reducing hyperpigmentation and lightening acne scars as well.

A “super plant” blend of oils and butters including Muru Muru, Abyssinian, Moringa and Sacha Inchi offers a bounty of vital nutrition and skin super foods, including anti-inflammatory Omega 3s and mega antioxidant and skin repair superstar Vitamin E. Phytosterols from Pomegranate help to prevent trans-epidermal water loss.

Powerfully Anti-aging and Healing

The herbs and botanicals included in Potentci are absolutely magical. Snow Mushroom, Horse Chestnut, Rhodiola Rosea, Mushroom Beta Glucan, Copaiba Balsam and Jericho Rose Resurrection Plant work synergistically to protect skin cell DNA, strengthen capillaries, offer adaptogenic benefits, reduce stress and inflammation, prevent free radical damage and improve the overall health and tone of the skin.

Potentci contains a combination of two peptides that interact with the most relevant protein structures of the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). These peptides significantly stimulate Laminin V, Collagen type IV, VII and XVII and Intergrin, strengthening and firming the structure of the DEJ. Skin tone, compactness, elasticity, firmness and smoothness all improve with continued use.

Potentci is a light to medium weight moisturizer suitable for day and evening. Very dry skins may wish to supplement with a cream, oil or balm.

(We have recently made slight changes to our formula due to supplier changes. Our proprietary herbal blend has changed slightly. Due to these changes, the cost of Potentci will increase slightly in November 2020, to $150)

Featured Botanicals

Nigella Sativa Seed, commonly know as Black Cumin, is historically renowned as a powerful skin healer. For acneic skin, it holds numerous benefits, including rebalancing linoleic acid deficiency, inhibiting inflammation causing mediators in the skin, and killing both type 1 and type 2 p.acnes bacteria. We use the incredibly pure and potent supercritical extract.
Peptide Complex – A combination of two peptides that interact with the most relevant protein structures of the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). Significantly stimulates Laminin V, Collagen type IV, VII and XVII and Intergrin, improving the structure of the DEJ. Skin tone, compactness, elasticity, firmness and smoothness all improve with continued use.

Pseudoalteromonas antarctica  – This extract contains a particular glycoprotein that helps the skin retain water, preventing ehydration. It also promotes keratinocyte growth and fibroblast adhesion for a skin regenerating effect and enhanced wound healing. It also increases collagen type I and IV, as well as elastin, resulting in a restructured skin and a reduction in wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes.

Sacha Inchi Oil – Omega 3 fatty acids are especially beneficial for reducing inflammation and irritation. Sacha Inchi Oil has 17 times more Omega-3 per ounce than wild salmon, 40 times more omega 3 than the Argan oil and is considered the highest plant-based source of Omega-3 on the planet. It is also rich in antioxidants Vitamins A and E, which help repair sun-damaged skin and contains ample linoleic acid for balancing oily complexions.
Copaiba Balsam  – An oil is sustainably harvested from tropical Copaiba trees, and Copaiba resin is the highest known natural source of caryophyllene. Caryophyllene is a phytochemical found in plants which has extensively been documented as having powerful anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, antifungal properties. Copaiba is commonly used in traditional Amazonian medicine for treating skin conditions.

Beet Sugar Extract is a food grade moisturizer and anti-irritant that is naturally derived from beets.  Betaine is an osmolyte which acts to maintain intracellular hydration, helping to prevent damage from environmental stressors such as UV radiation and oxidation.  This important function allows the cells to function more efficiently, preventing damage. Unlike traditional humectants, it hydrates from within, making it a suitable choice for any climate or environment.
Saw Palmetto Extract – This unique extract contains betasisterols that have been shown to reduce the hormonal activity in the skin responsible for hormonal acne. In addition to this important feature, Saw Palmetto is full of important antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Ceramide Complex – A crucial component of a healthy skin barrier. The lipid matrix of a healthy, protective skin barrier consists of fatty acids (found in oils and butters), ceramides and cholesterol (much more difficult to find as topical supplements). Our ceramide complex provides ceramides and cholesterol to help replenish these key components of the stratum corneum. Ceramides help the skin stay hydrated and in optimal health.
N-acetyl glucosamine is a “skin identical ingredient”, meaning it’s found in our own skin. Studies have shown that NAG can increase collagen production, increase moisture content of the skin, increase elasticity of the skin, normalize the exfoliation of the stratum corneum, and increase the speed of wound healing. It has also been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation and increase hyaluronic acid production in the skin.

8 dermal protection matrices

Tri-potency peptide technology

Tri-potency peptide technology

A proprietary peptide complex especially geared towards aging, scarred and glycated skins. All relevant protein structures (including collagen and elastin) of the dermal-epidermal junction are stimulated, resulting in improved skin compactness, firmness and tonicity. The complex also stimulates dermal filling, repair and renewal mechanisms of the skin, leading to a decreased volume of coarse wrinkles and acne scars.

Inhibits collagenase

Inhibits collagenase

An extract of natural rice peptides protects the skin from the collagen degrading effects of collagenases induced either by UV-radiation or other skin irritants. This rice protein extract helps to delay early skin aging, characterized by degeneration of matrix proteins, wrinkle formation, reduced elasticity and skin dryness. Rice protein extract is able to block the very damaging effect of collagenases induced by sun radiation, namely the collagen breakdown.

Tetrad Hydration Complex

Tetrad Hydration Complex

Properly hydrated skin heals much faster. Our multi-matrix hydration technology includes skin identical ceramides, cholesterol, saccharides, cold processed fatty acids and Pseudoalteromonas Ferment. These bacterial glycoproteins include compounds that powerfully stimulate collagen and elastin. Test results show Collagen I increased 128% in 15 days; Collagen IV increased 81% in 15 days; Elastin Levels increased 31% in 15 days.

Inhibits 5a-reductase

Inhibits 5a-reductase

5a reductase is an enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone into DHT (a more powerful androgen). Elevated 5a reductase activity is a cause of hormonal acne. Inhibiting 5a reductase stops the negative effect of testosterone on the sebaceous follicle.

Replenishes linoleic acid

Replenishes linoleic acid

Acneic skin typically shows a linoleic fatty acid deficiency in the sebum composition. Pumpkin seed oil is high in linoleic acid and helps restore the proper balance in the skin’s sebum, making it less sticky and prone to pore-clogging.

Inhibits inflammatory mediators

Inhibits inflammatory mediators

Interleukin-1a is an inflammatory mediator. It has been shown to be present in high concentrations in the skin of acne sufferers. Interleukin-1a has also been shown to promote hyper keratinization, or the abnormal stickiness of dead skin cells.

Kills p.acnes bacteria

Kills p.acnes bacteria

Kills both p.acnes bacteria types – type 1 and type 2. There are 2 types of p.acnes bacteria and tea tree oil only kills type 1( gram-positive), not type 2 (gram negative). Black cumin and manuka oils successfully destroy both types.

Normalizes sebum production

Normalizes sebum production

With proper hydration and protection, skin will naturally stop over-producing sebum. Oily skin is often an indicator of damaged or dehydrated skin trying to protect and repair itself as best as it knows how. Oily skin requires compassionate understanding, not harsh and oil-free products.
