"The single most important cause of age
 related wrinkles is the loss of skin elastin
 fibers. Everyone, whether male or female,
 will begin to lose skin elastin fibers at age 25.
 Elastin fibers are the restorative force in
 the skin.

 Only one product in the world can restore
 your elastin levels to that of 20 year old skin:
 Ethocyn®.”

Physiology & Skin Elastin


Elastin Fiber and Skin Structure


Your skin is comprised of two types of important skin fibers: collagen and elastin.

Collagen fibers (found in the reticular dermis) are the structural fibers of the skin. Collagen fibers do not stretch very well. In fact, one of their functions is to resist stretching and provide structure. Scar tissue is composed of collagen fibers.

Elastin fibers (found in the papillary dermis) are the rubber band fibers responsible for the ‘snap back’ quality of young skin. Elastin fibers are recognized by leading skin physiology physicians, like Dr. Peter Pugliese MD, to be the important “Youth Protein” fibers of skin. They give young (pre-25 years of age), smooth, firm skin its resiliency – its retraction and ‘snap.’ Elastin fibers are considered the skin’s crucial rubber bands.


The Physiology of Elastin Fiber Synthesis and Skin Aging


Published research and clinical trials confirm that a person’s genetic predisposition to inherit more or less DHT receptors in their skin fibroblast cells dictates the onset age and severity of elastin production. Medical research recognizes that our bodies, and more particularly the cells of our bodies, are a composition of millions of signal molecules. Some of these signal molecules are androgens and some are anti-androgens. Androgens naturally circulate in the blood stream of both men and women.

When an androgen enters a skin cell, it is converted to Dihydrotestosterone or DHT. DHT has a natural affinity to the cells’ DHT receptors – like a magnet to metal – and binds to the receptors. This bound complex moves to the nucleus of the cell and sends a message to the nucleus to stop/reduce producing elastin. Anti-androgens, which also have an affinity for DHT receptors, stop this union by acting as a goalie or blocker. This blocking of the DHT binding to the DHT receptor allows the cells to continue producing elastin.

Until sometime between 25 and 30 years of age – depending on our genetic disposition – the ratio of DHT and DHT receptors to anti-androgens is balanced.

As we age beyond 25- 30 years old, this equilibrium is disrupted as both DHT and DHT receptors increase and anti-androgens decrease.

It is this naturally occurring imbalance, which happens in everyone’s skin as we age, that leads to the decline in our skins’ important elastin production.


Causes and Treatment of Skin Aging – Skin Sagging and Wrinkling


As confirmed by eminent MD and skin physiologist Dr. Peter T. Pugliese, “The single most important cause of age related skin wrinkles and sagging is the loss of skin elastin fibers. Everyone, whether female or male, will begin to lose skin elastin fibers at age 25. Elastin fibers are the restorative force in the skin.”

Medical research findings confirm that our skin produces/synthesizes less elastin fibers as we chronologically age. This is recognized as Intrinsic Skin Aging and is completely independent of Photo (sun) Damage Skin Aging; using sunscreens and sun blocks protects skin from Photo Aging, but not from Intrinsic Aging. Wrinkles form because there is elastin fiber deficient (sagging) skin lying over the moving muscles of your face. Sagging skin is lacking youthful levels of elastin fibers.

Ethocyn was specifically designed by biochemist, Chantal Burnison to mimic, or simulate, the process that naturally occurs in young skin. Ethocyn is a competitive inhibitor — this means it blocks something from taking place. Ethocyn molecules, when applied topically to your skin, block DHT-DHT receptor binding in fibroblast skin cells, thereby allowing elastin production to continue at levels of young (18-25 years old) skin.

Prestigious, academic dermatologists at independent university medical centers around the world have conducted numerous Ethocyn clinical trials. These clinical trials report that Ethocyn is the only molecule in the world that can increase the elastin fiber content and quality of your skin. This applies to both men and women, for all skin types.

The 19 years of research and $20 million-plus of safety and efficacy Ethocyn, research studies confirm that Ethocyn is an ingredient every person over 25 years of age, male and female, should apply to their skin twice daily so that elastin fiber levels can return to youthful levels. Skin will resume the snap back quality of young, smooth, and resilient skin.
