Bionyx is a luxury skin care brand that utilizes high-end ingredients to give you an indulgent skin care experience. The key ingredient that Bionyx uses throughout their line of products is platinum. Although platinum is typically associated with jewelry, this ingredient does in fact offer benefits to the skin. Keep reading below to learn why Bionyx uses platinum and how this ingredient can promote youthful, glowing skin.
The inspiration to create Bionyx began when the company recognized that platinum has emerged as one of the hottest new ingredients that can further our anti-aging efforts.
Studies have confirmed that platinum nanoparticles have an unusually high absorption rate when attached to active anti-aging ingredients and can also penetrate deeper into the skin. It is theorized by many scientist that this is what allows platinum to offer even better youth-renewing results and keep the skin feeling moisturized and hydrated for longer.
To make the best use of platinum and its skin benefits, experts at Bionyx distilled its rare pleasures into anti-aging products to offer customers some of the best and most advanced solutions of this decade.
Key products from the Bionyx line include the Platinum Intense Eye Serum, the Platinum Complex Facial Peeling, and the Platinum Essential Day Cream.
The Bionyx Platinum Intense Eye Serum is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It is infused with green tea extract, peptides and platinum to achieve a well-rested and luminous look.
The Bionyx Platinum Complex Facial Peeling is a powerful yet gentle peel helps remove built up dirt and excess oils to leave your skin feeling smooth and radiant. Besides platinum, the only other ingredient in this facial peel that will help to exfoliate the skin is nut shell powder. However, nut shell powder can be very abrasive, so those with sensitive skin should be cautious when using this product.
Infused with ingredients such as colloidal platinum, shea butter, and sunflower seed oil, the Bionyx Platinum Essential Day Cream is said to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition to platinum, Bionyx uses several key anti-aging ingredients in their formulas, which we will discuss below.
DMAE, or dimethylaminoethanol, is a derivative of the B vitamin choline. It is said to have a firming effect on your face and neck tissues. However, DMAE is a controversial ingredient for skin because research has shown conflicting results. It seems to offer an initial benefit that improves skin firmness, but these results are only temporary and eventually give way to destruction of the substances in skin that help keep it firm. DMAE may also have skin-calming effects. DMAE can be found in the Bionyx Platinum Line Filler and the Platinum Redefining Serum.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a synthetic peptide comprised of four amino acids that is used to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. By suppressing these chemical messengers, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 protects collagen, elastin, and other proteins that help to keep your skin firm and wrinkle-free. Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 also fights inflammation and prevents loss of elasticity from your skin. This peptide is found in the Bionyx Platinum Advanced Eye Cream and the Platinum Intense Eye Serum.
It is well known that collagen is the protein responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity, and that as we age, collagen production decreases. This is one of the main causes of signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Bionyx claims that by adding collagen to their skin care products that these effects can be diminished. However, there is little evidence to suggest that topical collagen is effective. Dr. Eva Hurst, an associate professor of dermatology at Washington University in St. Louis, tells Today, “The collagen molecule is too big to penetrate the outer layer of skin,” she said, adding that even broken down collagen molecules, called hydrolyzed collagen, have no scientific evidence behind them. You’ll find collagen in the Bionyx Platinum Facial & Eye Mask and the Platinum Redefining Serum.
Cucumis Sativis Fruit Extract, or cucumber extract, is an antioxidant that relieves puffiness from your skin and soothes irritated skin. It is rich in potassium, silica, and magnesium, all of which are known for reducing fine lines and wrinkles from your skin. Cucumber extract is infused in the Bionyx Platinum Line Filler.
Retinyl palmitate is the ester form of retinol, also known as vitamin A. Retinyl palmitate has been clinically proven to promote a smoother and softer skin surface, reduce lines and wrinkles, diminish the signs of skin conditions such as acne, increase the production of collagen, minimize the pore size, and promote an even skin tone. Retinyl palmitate is found within the Bionyx Platinum Line Filler and the Platinum Refining Thermal Mask.
While there aren’t many reviews on the Bionyx website, the few reviews that can be found are positive, giving these products 5 out of 5 stars. Reviewers mention that they love the high-quality ingredients found within Bionyx products and they can tell these ingredients make a difference in their skin. Reviews for the Platinum Essential Day Cream state that this cream helps to minimize the appearance of pores while giving the skin a glow. Reviews for the Platinum Intense Eye Serum confirm that this serum is very lightweight and works well to improve the skin around the eyes.
