City Cosmetics total eye rejuvenating serum is manufactured by City Cosmetics, an American-based company. The manufacturer claims that restoration of skin around the eye can be achieved with this effective serum. Basically, dark circles and bags under eyes, crowfeet and wrinkles, eye creepiness suppose to be diminished just after one (!) application.
Two the most critical active ingredients for skin restoration in this unique serum are SYNAKE synthetic snake venom and Persian Silk Tree Extract. These compounds present groundbreaking achievements in anti-aging skincare. SYNAKE synthetic snake venom (or dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate in the ingredient list) is a synthetic version of the venom protein fond in the Temper Viper. It basically works as a mild Botox. Numerous clinical investigations demonstrated very high efficiency of SYNAKE in wrinkle reduction. The compound was developed by Swiss pharmaceutical company Pentapharm and received many patens and awards.
SYNAKE is used in many anti-wrinkle skin care products, however in City Cosmetic eye serum this powerful ingredient is combined with the bark extracts from beautiful Persian Silk Tree (Albizia Julibrissin). The product was developed by Sederma, a French company specialized in manufacture of finest natural compounds for the cosmetic industry. A very good science behind this product clearly demonstrates that Albizia Julibrissin bark extract has an incredible effect on the skin – it promotes deglycation of proteins that comprise the dermis, a fibroelastic layer of the skin. As we age, or as a result of poor, carb-rich diet, our body and skin specifically accumulate so-called advanced glycation-end products (AGE). These molecules are formed by non-specific binding of different carbs to various proteins (this process is called glycation), which make these proteins stiff and prone to damage. AGE are very toxic, although some of them can be cleared by the kidney, AGE that accumulate in the skin are extremely resistant to detoxification. Amusingly, Albizia Julibrissin bark extract stimulates removal of AGE from skin protein and thus restore the skin natural beauty, elasticity and coloration.
I absolutely love this serum, my skin around the eyes looks much younger and fresh. I ran the skin elasticity test and found an improvement in my under eye skin just after one week of application once a day.
My conclusion is: the total eye rejuvenating serum by City Cosmetics is a great product by a very good company. I definitely will be buying it in future.
