Why do we get wrinkles as we age?
There are a number of factors that contribute to the development of wrinkles, including exposure to sunlight and the loss of collagen in the skin. The predominant issue, however, has been found to be mitochondrial decay. As mitochondria age, they fail to generate the energy required to combat enzymes attacking healthy, youthful cells. Glissandra™ is the only product available that directly addresses this fundamental cause of skin aging.

How important is diet in skin health?
Diet and lifestyle are very important in skin health. Engaging in activities such as drinking, smoking and consuming foods high in free radicals all contribute to the deterioration of health – the signs of which are manifested as aging skin, among other health issues.
Learn how diet plays an important role in skin health.
How do Glissandra™ products improve the skin?
As clinical tests have shown, Glissandra™ products do not merely improve the visible appearance of skin aging, they also support the natural ability of skin cells to counteract the aging process and help prevent the signs of further deterioration.
Aging is a phenomenon that occurs in the body's cells. Its effects are more apparent on the skin and especially noticeable on facial skin. There are two generally recognized causes of skin aging: intrinsic and extrinsic.
Intrinsic aging, inherent with your genetics, is inevitable and cannot be affected by changes in behavior and lifestyle. On the other hand, extrinsic aging is caused by external factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol, poor nutrition, chronic exposure to sunlight, etc., and may be alleviated by lessening your exposure.
Both intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging bring about the depletion of cellular elements (such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, etc.), oxidative damage and inflammation – causing a loss of elasticity, pigmentation, radiance and other visible signs of aging.
Learn the ins and outs of intrinsic and extrinsic aging.
