Enzymes are biocatalysts, essential protein molecules that dramatically speed up cellular processes in all living beings. All harmful microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi etc.) are essentially protein based. The marine enzymes used in Dr Bragi's patented formulation specifically target these proteins by disabling them and therefore protecting the skin. Their unique ability to penetrate the skin’s epidermis layer also encourages cellular rejuvenation and cleansing from within.
Dr Bragi’s patented marine enzymes are like no other cosmetic ingredient available, unlike other enzymes used in skincare, marine enzymes are adapted to function in the depths of the ocean with temperatures reaching as low as -2°C. When subjected to body temperature, they become ‘super-active’ and more powerful than other enzymes.
Dr Bragi’s marine enzyme formulation was patented in 1999 for cosmetic and pharmaceutical use, and continues to be the subject of clinical studies around the world.
This graph shows the relative activity of Dr Bragi’s marine enzymes in comparison to non-marine enzymes used in other products.
The marine enzyme dramatically outperforms the "other enzyme" making it far more beneficial for use in skincare.
SUPER-ACTIVE The marine enzyme becomes 'super-active' at body temperature.
CIRCULATING The enzymes support microcirculation, enhancing oxygen supply to the skin.
EXFOLIATING Surface impurities and dead cells are gently dissolved, promoting a glowing, blemish-free complexion.
SMOOTHING The enzymes 'dissolve' dead skin cells, the skins surface is gently refined, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
HYDRATING The marine enzyme rebalances the skin's water content to ensure continual hydration.
LIFTING The marine enzyme protects against the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Skin texture and density are improved and appear firmer, smoother, and more youthful.
CALMING The marine enzyme's anti-inflammatory action minimises redness, irritation and blotchiness.
ANTI-POLLUTION Environmental pollutants are disabled, minimising the risk of premature ageing.
DIFFUSING Marine enzymes diffuse deeply into the layers of the epidermis, targeting the imperfections directly and allowing for faster results.
