SM Derma Fusion® is not intended to treat any specific illness or disease. What we have found is that when the skin receives what it needs, it is amazing what users have reported about their own skin's response to SM Derma Fusion®. It is important to realise that everyone may not experience the same response. This is because SM Derma Fusion® is a non-medicated cosmetic product that provides the skin with the essential building blocks. The individual's experience will be in direct relationship with his or her own skin's ability to regenerate.
These pictures clearly illustrate our core proposition:
A deficiency of one or more essential nutrients in the skin can cause unwanted symptoms; and given the opportunity the body has the capacity to regenerate.
Skin cells in the epidermis acts as a barrier and are for the most part already “dead” cells.
This may be true in some sense — but we just don’t buy it!
How many dead smart people do you know?
Skin cells in the epidermis are not only a barrier, but a very intelligent barrier.
90+ % of the skin cells are active Keratin producing cells (Keratinocytes); a complex process, transcribing 16 different amino acids correctly and weave them into Keratin protein. These cells are very much alive and in constant need of nutrition. --Consider the nasty fact that low grade (prescription errors) Keratin will end up as a bump on your skin!
Keratinocytes also play an active role in the immunity of the skin:
The very outer layer of the skin appears to be dead skin cells filled with Keratin. (Again it is important that they are filled with 'high grade' keratin). The mind boggling fact is that studies indicate that these cells appear to shield the body from selenium in its inorganic form but 'allow' selenium through in its organic form!
The fact is that the majority of cells in the epidermic layer are very active cells, still capable of metabolic activity 'far' removed from the dermis, and form an integral part in balancing the cellular immune system. Keep also in mind that the epidermis contains active enzyme activity and a host of healthy and hungry bacteria (good guys) that can assist with vital skin functions such as repairing damaged cells, regulating acid levels of the skin, seal in moisture--and they all need proper nutrient building blocks.
The skin will not let anything through — why try to feed it?
An intelligent well balanced epidermic cellular system will block a large percentage of any harmful particles, but will let useful particles through as long as they are in the proper state and size (500 Dalton Rule)—see Myth 1.
The skin does not have a digestive system and therefore it is impossible to feed the epidermis.
In one sense this is true, the skin does not have a digestive system and as such large food particles or protein strands found in some of the exotic oils and cluster extracts on the market cannot be digested properly for cellular use.
For example, a tiny protein molecule is made up of about 580 amino acids at a molecular weight of 64,000 Daltons. These amino acids are in chains (lipids) that range from a few amino acids long to more than 50 amino acids.
Can the protein molecule or lipids penetrate the skin?
There is a generally accepted rule called the 500 Dalton Rule. This rule states that molecules larger than 500 Dalton cannot penetrate the skin.
Based upon this rule (and there are exceptions and hormone manipulation) a protein molecule will more than likely stay behind. A typical lipid chain with more than 7 amino acids will probably also not make the journey.
Even if such an oil or extract could penetrate the epidermis, there is not much the epidermis could do with it. On a cellular level it is like delivering large concrete blocks as the material for a brick wall.
The good news is that nutrition through the skin is possible given that the manufacturer is willing to go the second mile to ensure that the nutrients are in proper organic state and provided as molecules smaller than 500 Daltons (with some exceptions),.
Therefore, for moisturizing (shielding internal moisture from escaping) there are a host of products available—even old fashion olive oil and Vaseline will do a good job—but for feeding the skin and providing the potential for repair and beautification SM Derma Fusion® is on a very short list of technologies that actually feed the epidermis.
(We do not suggest that you should not lavish the outer layer of the skin with some exotic oil and extract with a pure feeling of luxury and softness--spoil yourself. We are saying your skin is probably also hungry--feed it :))
A healthy skin can do miracles.
SM Derma Fusion® may assist with many conditions and is currently on a trial and observation basis for anti-aging (restoring skin elasticity, wrinkle reduction, and tone), after sun burn, alleviation and restoration for general burns, anti-scaring (promoting wound healing), and may assist with restoring balance to skin immune system (alleviation of eczema symptoms and other related disorders of the skin), restoring of the epidermis in nappy rash damage.
Women have also reported that SM Derma Fusion® has assisted with vein related issues, and even acts as a great base cream before applying make-up since a small amount spreads widely (micronized).
Due to the tiny molecular mineral structures it appears to be very effective as a natural cleaning agent for removing makeup, and for cleaning the face in general.
