Our Star Ingredient Calcium Ketogluconate: The Answer to Tighter Skin

By Jena Covello and @sofiamcgrand

Chances are you’ve never heard of calcium ketogluconate, but after reading this blog post, you’ll be glad its a main ingredient in collection.

Aging is a natural process we all go through. Some people age sooner or later, depending on environmental factors, diet, and genetics. In this day and age, there are more negative factors that speed up the aging process like modified food and air quality. Today, we’re lucky to live in a world where aging gracefully and using effective, non-toxic beauty products are the norm. Calcium Ketogluconate is used in a variety of anti-aging products because of its ability to tone and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. We use Calcium Ketogluconate in a couple of our products because it is so effective and heavily backed by clinicals and science. 

Calcium ketogluconate is a French-patented natural molecule that comes in pure powder form. Itis highly ranked in purity. We add this ingredient to holi(c) the skin duo, holi(oil) ageless face serum, and holi(body) ageless body serum.

  • holi(c) is a powder that helps with the appearance of fine lines. It also fights free radicals, brightens, tightens, helps with scars, acne, and rosacea, and evens out the complexion. 
  • holi(oil) brightens and hydrates the skin, boosts collagen, and fights free radicals. It also minimizes the appearance of redness, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. 
  • holi(body) tightens and firms skin. It also helps reduce the look of cellulite to promote smooth, hydrated skin, diminishes the appearance of dark spots and acne, and helps to fight free radicals.

 Today we will break down how this complex calcium plays a significant role in delaying the aging process and how it naturally helps our skin look and feel better. 

Calcium k works in the dermis, which is the middle and thickest layer of our skin.

The dermis is home to:

  • connective tissues like collagen and elastin 
  • lymph vessels
  • sweat glands 
  • oil glands
  • nerve endings
  • hair follicles 

That said, the dermis plays a major role in our skin health. The dermis is responsible for producing elastin and hyaluronic acid. Elastin and hyaluronic acid production are what make our skin look youthful and healthy, which, over time, starts to decrease. When this starts to happen, the aging process begins, you lose elasticity and flexibility, and begin to see all the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. 

This is where Calcium K comes to the rescue and combats the aging process by naturally stimulating the skin to produce hyaluronic acid and elastin syntheses in the dermis. Over time, this improves the skin elasticity and it helps slow down the aging process.

Calcium K is safe to use around the eyes and lips because of how safe and clean it is. It is ranked a 1, which is the highest rank in safety on EWG (Environmental Working Group Site). 

In a clinical trial conducted in France, they found that in an IN VIVO clinical test that used a formulation with .5% of Calcium K two times a day for 28 days, skin fatigue and sagging was decreased by 27% and skin elasticity and flexibility increased by 16%.
