Why do our cells lose their functional potential as we age?
The science behind Heraux emerged from research in the stem cell labs at two top tier universities in Los Angeles, California.
Our research began with a focus on enabling cartilage stem cells in the knee joint to resist degenerative stress and actively heal. Through this, we created HX-1, a molecule that shields stem cells from the effects of stress and promotes their overall youthful function. This essentially stops the inflammaging process—which is fueled by stress—in its tracks.
We quickly realized that our HX-1 technology could support stem cell function all over the body—including the skin.
In science, the term for aging driven by chronic stress is inflammaging. This stress is caused by a multitude of factors throughout our lifetime, including environment (UVA/UVB exposure), air pollution, diet and emotional stress, all of which contribute to damage within our cells.
As we age, this cumulation of stress leads to poor cellular health, which causes stem cells to lose their functional potential. This in turn leads to visible signs and feelings of aging (such as joint pain in the knees or fine lines on the skin).
A clinical trial of HX-1 confirmed the link: Stem cells in the skin respond to stress in a remarkably similar way as those found in cartilage. In an eight-week long clinical trial of twice a day application, HX-1 showed an up to 85% decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle depth.
Just as HX-1 can work to halt the aging process in our joint cartilage, it has a similar effect when used topically. For the skin, this results in profound anti-aging effects including the visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved elasticity and a more even skin tone.
On the cutting edge
HX-1 is the world's first true anti-inflammaging molecular technology. We at Heraux are proud to introduce you to a powerful new way to reduce the signs of aging and maintain beautiful and healthy skin.
Our Heraux Ingredient
HX-1 is our breakthrough, dual-acting molecular technology that specifically targets inflammaging and rejuvenates skin at a cellular level by driving a progenerative response.
HX-1 specifically targets the fundamental protein that drives inflammaging in the skin by making it less effective in our cells. This shields our skin stem cells, leading to improved cellular health.
Results in a progenerative process that supports increased collagen and elastin production, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosts elasticity and evens out skin tone.
We patented HX-1 and bottled it into a lightweight, anti-aging serum infused with other beneficial ingredients including hyaluronic acid, peptides, Vitamins C +E and red maple bark.
