Process of ageing skin over time
The critical changes that occur when the skin ages are seen in the lower layer of the skin (dermis). In our youth, sufficient amounts of collagen and hyaluronic acid are produced in this layer. Applying any creams or other products to the overlying visible upper skin (epidermis), which does not have any blood supply, only brings about short-lived positive results. Look at it this way: If you paint the front of your house without applying primer first, it will peel off within a very short space of time; guaranteed.
The skin is naturally supplied with collagen and hyaluronic acid, both of which are essential components of skin and connective tissue. The problem: Production of these two substances starts to decrease from the age of 25 and continues to reduce rapidly to only 30% (collagen) and 10% (hyaluronic acid) of its original capacity by the time we reach 60. The skin actually dries up from the inside and loses its elasticity. It starts to sag and fold, and develops more and more wrinkles. Collagen makes skin tissue smooth and supple, and hyaluronic acid supplies it with moisture.
Methylsulfonylmethane (organosulphur compound) plays an important part in building-up of collagen. The latter is a basic protein for structure and strength of connective tissues, bones, cartilages and tendons. Formation of keratin also depends on the sulphur. Keratin makes 98% of our nails and our hair also possesses a high content of this substance. Healthy and strong nails, elastic and wrinkle-free skin, reach and shiny hair are results of well-functioning sulphur metabolism.
