Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
We love Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice. As everybody knows the life force of aloe vera is in that clear and sticky gel that is inside the leaves. It is loaded with vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Aloe is one of the world’s greatest anti-inflammatory ingredients. It is completely natural and also helps protect and repair the sunburnt skin around the eyes along with helping to sooth any skin problems.
Spilanthes Acmella Flower
Spilanthes Acmella is known as the toothache plant because it has been used for centuries as a pain reliever. It is a pretty plant with red and yellow colored flowers. This plant has analgesic properties, which makes it a perfect ingredient for the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream.
There has been significant research around the Spilanthes Acmella which has shown that it is a potent pain reliever when used in topical skin formulations. It is actually a mild aphrodisiac and increases the FSH and LH testosterone boosters in men.
Here is the thing though. Spilanthes Acmella is a powerful antioxidant. It stimulates the contractile force of fibroblasts which cause a tightening of the dermis. The end result is, it will firm up the skin under your eyes and help reduce the appearance of pigmentation like dark circles.
Acmella Oleracea extract
This ingredient in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream is a natural Botox alternative. Simply put, it has been shown to reduce wrinkles under and around the eyes by countering muscle tension caused by contracted tenseness.
Like Spilanthes Acmella, the Acmella Oleracea plant has been used world wide as a herbal medicine administered for toothaches and other pain symptoms. This is because it has paralyzing effects on the tiny muscles of the dermis. Because of this it reduces wrinkles upon application by relaxing the skin.
In fact, there was a clinical study conducted recently which demonstrated the remarkable pain killing properties of Acmella Oleracea. The results showed that three quarters of users instantly realize the skin smoothing effect of Acmella Oleracea. This occurred as quickly as the day following the initial application.
Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract
This extract is commonly known as Butcher’s Broom and it has a long and storied history in traditional herbal medicine. It is used topically as a treatment for varicose veins and other skin ailments like hemorrhoids. This is due to its anti-inflammatory capabilities that were created by the saponin glycosides. These glycosides are known as neoruscogenin and ruscogenin.
As the capillaries and blood vessels around your eyes contract and tighten, the Ruscus Aculeatus acts quickly to relieve the inflammation. This has the effect of reducing the appearance of dark circles around the eyes along with any redness in the skin. For this reason it seems to be a natural fit for the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream formula
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 is a very powerful skin care peptide. What it does is tricks your skin in to producing excess collagen. As we all know, collagen is essential in repairing damaged skin and improving elasticity. As a result it minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.
Recent research on how peptides exactly work is always being conducted, but what we know is pretty convincing. When Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 is used as part of a regular skin care routine, it can repair damage by stimulating collagen producing. This results in younger, and smoothing skin around your eyes.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 (Matrixyl 3000)
One of the most powerful skin care peptides ever created is Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. It is known by its trade name of Matrixyl 3000. It is a synthetic peptide that is comprised of different amino acids. Matrixyl 3000 is used in high end skin care products, particularly for use around the eyes. What it does is suppresses the production of excess interleukins. These are the chemical messengers which counter inflammation.
In the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream, Matrixyl 3000 is vital in fighting wrinkles, sagging and uneven skin tone around the eyes. There have been several clinical studies conducted on Matrixyl 3000 that have proved its remarkable efficacy. Despite being a synthetic peptide it is considered to be completely safe to be used in an eye cream product.
Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract
Another significant skin conditioner in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream is Quinoa. It is obtained by extraction from wild seeds. It is a remarkable emollient and conditioner. Especially when dealing with sensitive skin.
SkinPro included Dipeptide-2 in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream despite not being a very well known peptide. However, our own research has led us to conclude that it is very effective in improving lymphatic circulation and for this reason it has been included in this product.
Of course, improving lymphatic circulation is a major goal of our eye cream as our customers are looking to combat those dark and puffy under eye circles. Although there hasn’t been any real clinical studies to support this claim, we have always seen Dipeptide-2 as a significant de-puffing device. Besides, even throwing out the validity of its de-puffing ability you will still be left with an effective skin conditioner. And that is very important.
Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract
Acai berry is a potent antioxidant and is included in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream because it is simply full of fatty acids. It actually has 10 times the antioxidant capacity of blueberries or grapes. Furthermore, the University of Florida ran a study which demonstrated that acai berry was able to kill a significant number of leukemia cells. It is an expensive ingredient to obtain because the berries are high fat and go bad quickly.
Arnica Montana Flower Extract
This flower has a well known anti-inflammatory ability. This is a key ingredient in our dark circle cream because it is critical in decreasing puffiness around the eyes. The Arnica Montana Flower Extract is highly potent and has noted analgesic abilities as well when applied topically around the eyes.
Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract
Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract counters glycation. That is what makes it such an important ingredient in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream. It prevents glycation by blocking its implementation. It also repairs by deglycating. By this we mean that the ingredient can successfully neutralize and detoxify the process of glycation.
This leads to a repairing effect on otherwise tired and aging skin. Skin that has lots its radiance, brilliance and suppleness. Fighting glycation is so important as this is the process that causes the collagen in the skin under your eyes to lose elasticity as you age. When you lose elasticity you are going to have wrinkled, sagging and thin skin.
Myrciaria Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit Extract
Camu Camu is a shrub which bears a fruit with a peel that is absolutely loaded in Vitamin C. It is a tremendous antioxidant as well as being an anti-inflammatory. We keep stressing how vital Vitamin C is to the dermis as a super antioxidant that is capable of repairing damaged skin. There are not many better sources of Vitamin C than Camu Camu. It is a rare ingredient and we included it in this dark circle cream because of its strong antioxidant properties. To fight dark circles you need an overload of antioxidants.
Caffeine is a remarkable anti-aging organic compound included in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream because of its antioxidant protection from free radicals. It aids with the absorption of other ingredients in the cream. Also, the acid in the caffeine is itself a potent antioxidant which can actually protect against skin cancer caused by sun. We wanted this eye cream to be something you use daily. Caffeine helps protect your eyes from the sun by blocking cancer causing free radicals.
As far as appearance goes, caffeine is a vascoconstrictor. What this means is that it is helpful in reducing puffiness around the eyes. Caffeine does this by increasing the blood flow along with the lipolytic effect. It does this by blocking enzymes and decreasing the breaking of the triglycerides. Because caffeine has such a powerful anti-inflammatory effect it is a key ingredient in this eye treatment. What it does exactly is it constricts the blood vessels in the eye area. This helps reduce puffiness around the eyes. One of the main symptoms combatted by the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream.
Cameila Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract
Another notable anti-inflammatory ingredient, the Cameila Sinesis Leaf Extract works to reduce UV induced inflammation. It is in the formula for its redness and irritation fighting properties. It is a sun protecting ingredient and it has been shown to enhance the effects of other sun blocking ingredients like caffeine. So when used together, the green tea extract and caffeine are a very powerful combo that have synergy.
Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Leaf/Seed Extract
Coffee Arabica Leaf/Seed Extract is extracted by actually cold pressing raw green coffee beans. It contains essential fatty acids and vitamins. Coffee is a potent antioxidant that is loaded with Vitamin E. It protects against skin damage and DNA degradation. Clinical studies have actually proven a significant improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, skin elasticity, redness and skin texture around the eyes when subjects used a coffee based night cream like the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream.
First of all, Mangosteen is not related to the mango. It is a rare fruit and difficult to grow. Attempts to grow Mangosteen in the US have all failed. It is a widely touted superfruit known for potent cancer-prevention powers. But the fact is, Mangosteen is really just a highly effective antioxidant that is ideal for use in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream.
That is because it contains Vitamin C, manganese and folic acid. Furthermore, Mangosteen contains xanthones, which are said to inhibit carinogens in the skin. It is an anti-inflammatory agent which can really reduce that puffiness under the eyes. For this reason, Mangosteen is an ideal ingredient for this dark circle eye cream.
Lycium Chinese (Goji Berry) Fruit Extract
Goji Berries were supposedly first discovered by Buddhist monks in the mountains of ancient Tibet. What happened was that the monks who integrated goji berries in to their diets ended up living substantially longer than the ones who did not consume this fruit. What we know now is that Goji Berries are packed with tons of powerful anti aging nutrients.
The berries are very rich in vitamins and minerals, making them a super antioxidant. Calcium, potassium, and selenium to name just a few. These are vitamins that help fight cancer causing free radicals. And from a skin care concern they help increase the production of elastin and collagen. This helps counter the development fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes by keeping the skin supple and firm.
Finally, Goji Berries are loaded with Vitamin C. Of course Vitamin C is a skin care heavyweight. It helps speed healing and encourages collagen production of its own. It is a super oxidant itself that protects the skin from stress which helps deter dark under eye circles.
Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit Extract
Dr. Murad’s favorite skin care ingredient is pomegranate. Long considered to be the fruit of the Gods, pomegranate extract is capable of great things. It can protect against oxidative damage while also increasing the levels of antioxidant molecules in the skin. This antioxidant property of the pomegranate is just one of many skin care benefits of the fruit.
Studies have demonstrated that pomegranate can significantly enhance skin complexion. We are happy to see this potent ingredient included in the Miami Nights Dark Circle Cream because it can do amazing things for the prevention and the treatment of skin that has been exposed to the skin. It has been shown to even skin tones and counter the loss of skin collagen while stimulating skin cell proliferation.
