Excelagene is a clinically perfected anti-aging and skin protecting hyaluronic response serum that combats the root causes of premature skin aging while correcting existing problem areas. Suitable for a variety of skin types, this multi-action complex fights damage at the cellular level while promoting a flawlessly smooth texture and youthful tone.
Several of Excelagene's key benefits are due to the optimal blend of low molecular and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid in the formulation. Low molecular weight (LMW) hyaluronic acid penetrates deep into skin to increase moisture levels and enhance skin's overall condition from the inside out. It also improves the absorption of other active ingredients. The high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid in Excelagene remains on the skin's surface, forming a protective barrier that inhibits loss of hydration while giving skin a dewy, youthful glow. When used in combination, the two patented sizes of hyaluronic acid in the Excelagene serum correct moisture loss and imbalances in both deeper and superficial skin layers, regardless of skin type. The result is smoother, firmer, and more supple skin.
In addition to providing lasting feather-light hydration, premium quality hyaluronic acid is a powerful wrinkle correcting agent. Its humectant properties allow it to absorb large quantities of moisture from the surrounding environment. Skin is plumped up from underneath the surface to fill in lines and radically diminish their appearance. With regular use, hyaluronic acid can reduce the visibility of even deep creases and furrows. The wrinkle fighting effects of hyaluronic acid are enhanced by its antioxidant properties, which render skin more resistant to harmful free radicals that contribute to skin damage and signs of aging.
Excelagene can slow the glycation process that contributes to numerous issues seen in mature skin. Glycation is a naturally occurring reaction between sugar molecules and proteins that causes both collagen and elastin in the skin to stiffen. The result is a loss of elasticity, skin sagging, and the appearance of unsightly wrinkles. Ameliox is a clinically tested compound that fights glycation to maintain elasticity and firmness while inhibiting wrinkle formation. Ameliox is also a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals to guard against oxidative stress, which contributes to skin cell aging and accelerates the glycation reaction.
Finally, thanks to the inclusion of PerfectionPeptide P7, Excelagene is a natural antioxidant enhancer that can both neutralize harmful toxins and enhance skin's self-protection mechanisms. PerfectionPeptide P7 contains a biologically active heptapeptide that activates Nrf2, a crucial transcription factor that promotes the production of enzymes that fight environmental stressors and the replenishment of naturally occurring, damage fighting antioxidants. This amazing peptide complex in Excelagene allows users to fight skin damage due to both age and environmental factors. It uses an enhanced delivery system based on shea butter to improve penetration and prevent peptide breakdown.
The hyaluronic acid, Ameliox, and PerfectionPeptide P7 in the scientifically developed Excelagene formulation work synergistically to protect and improve skin at every level and deliver dramatic, jaw-dropping results!
- Delivers potent antioxidants to the skin that neutralize destructive free radicals to help guard against UV damage and environmental aging
- Intensely hydrates and moisturizes skin to combat mild to severe dryness and flakiness and leave skin feeling velvety soft and perfectly smooth
- Forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface to maintain moisture balance while also delivering other active skin perfecting ingredients below the surface
- Allows the skin to absorb additional hydration from the environment to quench parched skin and plump away lines and wrinkles, and improves the look of even deep wrinkles over time
- Activates Nrf2 activity to enhance the self-defence capabilities of cells and effectively guard against DNA damage that can occur due to exposure to free radicals and oxidative stress
- Delays skin aging due to both chronological and environmental factors while enhancing the replacement of naturally occurring antioxidants used to guard against damage
- Inhibits glycation to prevent changes to the structure of elastin and collagen that can lead to wrinkles, lines, and loss of firmness and elasticity
- Works at the cellular level to prevent the oxidative stress that promotes skin cell aging and inhibit the glycation reaction that causes dermal proteins to become stiffer and less flexible

Formulated with hyaluronic acid as well as advanced liposomal and heptapeptide preparations, Excelagene is a potent blend of seven key ingredients. Excelagene hyaluronic response serum perfects the appearance of skin and combats signs of aging while providing comprehensive protection at the surface and at the cellular level against damage and oxidative stress.
Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glycerin, Alcohol, Carnosine, Silybum Marianum Fruit Extract, Tocopherol, Lecithin, Acetyl sh-Heptapeptide-1, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Phenethyl Alcohol
Both low molecular weight and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid are found in Excelagene. Hyaluronic acid with a low molecular weight can penetrate deeply into the epidermal layer to correct moisture loss at its source. It also has the added benefit of ensuring other key ingredients are properly absorbed into skin so they can deliver maximum results. The high molecular weight form remains on the surface to lock in moisture and give skin a healthy glow. Thanks to these dual benefits, even severe dryness and moisture imbalances can be corrected to improve skin's youthful qualities and texture.
When applied regularly, this ingredient may not only help restore youthful levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin, but it also acts as a powerful humectant. It allows the skin to absorb large quantities of moisture from the surrounding environment, which has a hydrating effect that makes skin appear dewy and radiant. Hyaluronic acid also works beneath the surface to plump up skin, filling in and minimizing the appearance of lines, crow's feet, and creases. With continued use, even deep wrinkles become less noticeable. The overall result is firmer, smoother, youthful looking skin and a more luminescent tone.
Ameliox (Carnosine, Silybum Marianum Fruit Extract, and Tocopherol)This age-fighting antioxidant and glycation inhibiting complex is made up of three of the key ingredients in Excelagene. Carnosine may inhibit glycation, a chemical reaction associated with age-related skin issues such as loss of volume and elasticity. The polyphenol in silybum marianum fruit extract is an oil-soluble antioxidant that can fight free radicals and reduce oxidative stress due to UV exposure, which can damage DNA over time. Tocopherol is an antioxidant that renders skin better able to withstand the environmental stressors that can accelerate aging. It offers powerful photoprotection to limit UV damage due to sun exposure, a primary cause of premature skin aging.
PerfectionPeptide P7 (Acetyl sh-Heptapeptide-1, Shea Butter, and Glycerin)PerfectionPeptide P7, which combines a skin protecting heptapeptide with an advanced delivery system, represents a revolutionary breakthrough in skincare science. Acetyl sh-Heptapeptide-1 boosts the skin's natural ability to defend itself against oxidative stress due to free radicals and environmental toxins by stimulating Nrf2 activity. It enhances the skin's self-defence system to preserve DNA, fight signs of aging, and inhibit the formation of sunburn cells. Shea butter is the basis of a soft sphere delivery system that allows the heptapeptide to better penetrate skin, maintain its potency, and improve absorption by target cells. Shea butter and glycerin are also both rich skin conditioning agents.
Once or twice daily, apply a small amount of serum to your hands to evenly distribute to your entire face, neck and surrounding area. Allow to dry. If using in the morning, apply before using a Solvaderm sunscreen product.
