The Science Behind
The Phytomone Philosophy backed by scientific research
Phytomone was created after 10 years of research into hormonal skin ageing by the founder and creator Jane Atherton, during which time Jane discovered that during a woman’s fertile years oestrogen is responsible for enhancing many aspects of her femininity, including a curvaceous figure and most definitely the radiant glow in a woman’s skin as oestrogen peaks throughout the month.
As this hormone begins to rapidly decline in our thirties, forties and fifties, so does our ability to retain the radiance of our youth.
The Phytomone skin care collection has been designed to recapture and preserve that special healthy glow of your youth.
No Collagen without oestrogen
The influence of oestrogen begins to decline from our thirties onwards. Without this vital hormone our skin struggles to make collagen, resulting in loss of firmness and elasticity. Skin health is now in decline, with lines and wrinkles become more noticeable, dryness more apparent and the complexion looking dull and sallow. Hormonal skin ageing will eventually affect all women, of all skin types and all ethnicities, there is no escape! And will start to become apparent in your thirties.
Science has long proven that oestrogen plays a vital role in support of total body collagen. Collagen is the main connective tissue that holds us together. It is a vital component of most structures in the body and plays a role in the support of skin, muscle and bone. Oestrogen supports collagen through its receptors, tiny "locks" that exist all over the body which are activated by "keys": the oestrogen molecules. These receptors are known to exist in skin; in fact, there are more oestrogen receptors in the skin of the face than the skin of many other parts of the body. This is evidenced by the glow in a woman's face during times of peak hormonal vitality.
The solution for skin is to offer another "key" with plant derived phytoestrogens found in the Phytomone skin care collection
What are Phytoestrogens?
Phytoestrogens are plant-based hormones which have a molecular structure very similar to human oestrogen and provide a safe and effective way to restore benefits to oestrogen deficient skin. Plant hormones and the beneficial effect they have on hormonal decline in the body have been studied for many years and are a key ingredient in healthy diets and food supplements. Phytomone has now extended this technology to develop the first skin care collection with formulations dedicated to hormonally ageing skin
Benefits of topical phytoestrogens:
- Increase collagen production
- Increase hyaluronic acid
- Improve skin firmness and elasticity
- Imparts a radiant healthy glow
Phytomone offers a breakthrough in age prevention by using powerful phytoestrogen technology which is 100% natural plant based to safely and effectively rebalance and preserve hormonally ageing skin.
