Ester-C® - A Technological Breakthrough: (click for more information)
14.3% pure & stable Vitamin C. The Big news about Ester C is the shelf life. While most Vitamin C used in topical products is so unstable that 90% of its potency is gone after the first month (30 days). C Factor's main ingredient, Ester-C Topical retains 90% of its Vitamin C activity for 2 years (730 days). This translates to more potency in the bottle, so when you apply it, it sends concentrations of stable vitamin C directly into the skin.
To prove that Ester C® Topical achieves greater stability than ordinary vitamin C, scientists at Inter-Cal pioneered laboratory and analytical methods that gauge the stability of vitamin C liquids, topicals and cosmetics. Extensive accelerated tests revealed the remarkably long shelf life of Ester C® Topical... and the remarkably short shelf life of ordinary vitamin C. To understand the stability concept, consider the vitamin C in your orange juice. You buy it 'fresh' at the market. But as this chart shows, its vitamin C content deteriorates very rapidly. By contrast, the vitamin C in Ester C® Topical lasts over two years with a potency of 90%.

A natural plant extract from the bark of the Maritime Pine, pinus maritima, growing along the coast of south-west France, in the Lands of Gascony. Pycnogenol® is a water-soluble flavonoid extract with highly bio available procyanidins, catechins, taxifolins and the typical spectrum of phenolic acids. has proof of its bio availability in man. Pycnogenol®, is a powerful blend of antioxidants and a natural anti-inflammatory agent, helps binds collagen fibers, realigning them in the process to more youthful, undamaged structures. Elasticity and flexible strength is restored to connective tissue. Current research has shown that Pycnogenol® maintains skin health and helps alleviate a variety of other conditions.

WHAT IS COQ10?
Co-Q10 is a totally natural substance found in every cell of the human body, especially in the heart. Ubiquinone is produced by the liver naturally.
Co-Q10 is found in the food chain. Foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables have low levels whilst raw meat or very undercooked meat has potentially high levels.
Co-Q10 is harvested from a unique algae source produced in Japan. The Co-Q10 is removed without damaging the algae which is then able to recover and consequently can be re-harvested continually.
Co-Q10 acts similar to extremely effective strong antioxidants.
It prevents production of Oxygen free radicals initially, due to efficient controlled use of Oxygen and Hydrogen electrons which then ensures that cellular anti-oxidants have less free radicals to negate.
In catalytic pathways it sparks the manufacture of Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP), which is the basic energy currency molecule of the cell. ATP is the fuel that electrifies the Mitochondria. Co-Q10 is the precursor of ATP. ATP is created within the Electron Transport Systems (ETS). There can be up to 15,000 Electron Transport Systems in one Mitochondria. The numbers differ greatly in various body parts and individuals.
Without the presence of Co-Q10 in all mammal cells, the cellular Mitochondrial electronic balance diminishes with increasing age, resulting in ever increasing numbers of free radicals pervading the cell. This decline in the health of your Mitochondria is Mitochondrial disease.
Co-Q10 is the key to accessing HEZ (Hydrogen Efficiency Zone).
