Benefits of Our Natural Skin Care System
At Sapelo Skin Care, we challenge the dogma of contemporary skin care solutions that retinols and hydroxyl acids are the ‘Gold Standard’ for skin regeneration and anti-aging.
Like their first cousins, laser and abrasion, acids work by injuring the skin, creating acute and chronic inflammation. Inflammation is a biological response to harmful stimuli. It is the body’s immune system that responds to this injury by creating new collagen, elastin and skin cells. Inflammation creates low grade edema or swelling which makes wrinkles temporarily disappear.
We believe the daily application of acids and the habitual use of injurious dermatological procedures actually accelerates aging and speeds up the moment where our skin cells enter their senile phase and exhaust their capacity to repair. It isn’t anti-aging – it is accelerating aging.
At Sapelo, we acknowledge there is a short-term benefit to skin injuring procedures and acids. We embrace your body’s natural ability to repair by gently infusing the same bioactive peptides produced by our immune system in response to injury. Developed under the guidance of two board-certified physicians and a veteran cosmetic scientist, Sapelo is the only skin care system that accurately mimics the body’s immune response, to work in harmony with the body’s regenerative power. Sapelo works WITHOUT the injury and subsequent inflammation which accelerates aging.
How does Sapelo work?
Youthful skin is a result of active and natural cellular reproduction at the dermal and epidermal junction, combined with a rich extra-cellular matrix of healthy collagen, elastin, and adequate hydration. Our method delivers a hydrating, nutrient-rich surge twice daily to the skin. It all started with our 3-Step System. Step 1: Our Renewing Serum and Spring Tide Serum are hydrating formulations that flood the skin, opening channels between the cells to quickly deliver a deeply penetrating combination of vitamins, amino acids, hyalurons, minerals, micronutrients and plant-based stem cells. Step 2: Our Rejuvenating Cream is blended with 5 bioactive peptides that work to (A) build new proteins for new skin cells and to (B) create packages of collagen and elastin that are transported to the membrane of each cell and released into the extracellular matrix. Finish your complexion with Step 3, our Softening Emollient, infused with clove, lemongrass and rosehip essential oils. Step 3 holds each beneficial ingredient from Steps 1 and 2 in your dermis, leaving your complexion soft and smooth.
Formulated without fillers, silicones, parabens, sulfates or petrochemicals.
