Aquaporins are the hidden secrets of skin health. These tiny proteins in our cells regulate water flow, ensuring skin stays hydrated and resilient. Think of them as nature’s ultimate moisture managers, selectively allowing water molecules to enter while blocking out harmful substances. Melanopeel introduces 3 formulations with Aqua-Por™ technology to naturally boost your skin’s aquaporins.
Melanopeel has 3 amazing formulations with Aqua-Por™ technology to naturally boost your skin’s aquaporins.
Aquaporins, specifically aquaporin 3 (AQ3), are found abundantly in the skin epidermis and are emerging as a game-changer in our Melanopeel skincare options, offering surface hydration and deep, long-lasting rejuvenation.
Prolonged sun exposure, acne, environmental toxins, and aging can reduce the number of AQP3 in the epidermis, disrupting the skin’s water balance. Reduction in aquaporins 3 results in a disrupted skin barrier and worsens some skin conditions like acne, dermatitis (eczema) and psoriasis.
Indeed, the function of aquaporins aligns with their role as channels that facilitate water movement among cells, and this is anatomically important to the skin’s physiology. A higher quantity of aquaporins promotes increased water distribution, while a lower quantity causes skin dryness since trans-epidermal water loss from keratinocytes causes skin dryness – this is regulated by our many aquaporins. Boosting aquaporin function through our Melanopeel creams & serums is crucially important for improving skin hydration by restoring keratinocyte hydration balance. They also helps reduce inflammation, dryness, and skin redness.
Melanopeel Stimulates Aquaporin Production for Long-lasting Enhanced Skin Hydration
Aquaporin 3 is classified as an aquaglyceroporin and plays a dual role in overseeing water and glycerol transport across the skin membrane. Our Melanopeel Aqua-Por™ formulations are essential for preserving skin moisture, fluidity and elasticity, while fortifying the skin’s protective barrier. Glycerin in our optimal Melanopeel concentrations ensures synergistic activation of your aquaporin channels with continued use.
