Copper PCA Peptides (Was Firewall) 30ml

Medik8 Firewall 30ml Exposure to sunlight, smoke, exhaust fumes and air pollutants in the environment are the leading causes of skin photoaging - resulting in the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots, known as hyperpigmentation.

There is some evidence suggesting computer screen emissions are an additional source of environmental pollution but more research is required to substantiate this. In addition, the excesses of 'the night before' such as alcohol consumption can lead to dehydration and the build up of cellular toxins adding to the degeneration of a heathly and youthful complexion. All these environmental pollutants result in the production of free-radicals.

Are you looking to:
Add a youthful glow to your skin increasing hydration and tone?
Maintain collagen levels?
Protect from future signs of ageing?
Improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin?
Reduce the appearance of age spots and discolouration?

Strong antioxidants have been shown to provide these benefits. In tests Firewall was shown to be an extremely powerful antioxidant beating 9 other premium brands in both strength of action and broad spectrum coverage.
 

Why is Firewall different to regular antioxidants?

At least 5 times stronger
Firewall has been tested in the industry standard Total Antioxidant Test and it performed extraordinarily well. The final product has been tested for its antioxidant performance rather than active ingredients individually. The Total Antioxidant Test proved Firewall 5 times stronger than the next best alternative. This guarantees Firewall’s superb anti-ageing performance.

Neutralises a wide range of free radicals
Unlike other well known and popular antioxidants which target only one or two specific types of free radicals, Firewall is a Broad Spectrum antioxidant, as it is highly effective at scavenging a wide variety of free-radical species. In this way, the protective benefit of an antioxidant system is optimized to maximum.

Redundancy - even tackles harmful by-products
Firewall not only attacks and neutralises a wide variety of free-radical species, but also effectively fights the bi-products of such processes, which are as damaging as the free-radicals themselves. All this thanks to Cusodase P, an exclusive to Medik8 anti-ageing complex protected by two pending patents.

Lasts longer - mimics the natural body's antioxidants
Most antioxidant products work like sponges that soak up or quench free-radicals. Their absorption, though, is limited. Firewall works not only like a sponge but also like an enzyme pump. It sucks-up free-radicals, converts them into bi-products (in a similar way as the body's natural antioxidants SOD and Catalase) and then expels them from the system. Firewall can process millions of repeated conversions before losing activity, making it more effective than other well known products.

What does the term “broad spectrum activity” mean?
Unlike other well known and popular antioxidants which target only one or two specific types of free radicals, Firewall is a broad spectrum antioxidant, as it’s highly effective at scavenging a wide variety of free-radical species. In this way, the protective benefit of an antioxidant system is optimized to maximum.
What is Cusodase-P?
It is a unique patent-pending anti-ageing complex that comprises several actives including the Firewall breakthrough antioxidant molecule that is 40 times stronger than vitamin C.
How do we know that Firewall is upto 5 times stronger than other products available on the market?
Firewall has been tested throughout development in various antioxidant assays including the Total Antioxidant Test against nine leading antioxidant products and it performed extraordinarily well.
What other products are recommended to use along with Firewall to strengthen its effects?
Firewall is a standalone treatment serum yet fully integrated into the Medik8 program. However, like other dedicated antioxidant serums, Firewall does not contain sunscreen. Therefore we would highly recommend using Medik8 Hydr8 SPF after applying Firewall.
How can I incorporate Firewall into my existing or Medik8 program?
The Firewall Protocol is as follows: Cleanse (oneCleanse) – Protect (Firewall) – Repair (Retinol Face and Eye boosts) – Hydrate (Hydr8 SPF25). Medik8 strongly endorse the use of sunscreen such as Hydr8 SPF during daylight hours.
Can I use Firewall along with other products from other quality brands?
Yes, however if Firewall is used together with a product containing the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C, the user may notice a slight metallic smell. For the best product experience, we do not advise using ascorbic acid along with Firewall. Other forms of vitamin C including Medik8 C-Tetra, ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium/sodium ascorbyl phosphate can be used to great effect without any metallic smell (especially Medik8 C-Tetra).
Why does Firewall’s performance last longer in comparison to other similar products on the market?
The Firewall Cusodase-P complex acts both like a sponge to soak up or quench free-radicals and. Firewall not only works like a sponge but also like a pump as it mimics the superoxide and catalase enzymes. Like enzymes, these so-called 'enzyme mimetics' can process millions of repeated conversions before losing activity. The sponge-like quencing fat-soluble vitamin C quickly absorbs and persists in the skin for days and cannot be washed off. Firewall's broad and long-lasting antioxidant performance is the perfect accompaniment for sunscreens.
Should I be concerned by the deep blue colour formed when mixing the two components of Firewall?
Tests have shown that the Cusodase-P complex is most effective during the actual process of formation. Therefore, it seemed sensible to separate the actives until the moment of application and lock them in a twin-chamber airless packaging. The deep blue color emerging when the two actives are mixed, is a normal sign of the reaction taking place.
