SKIN+BEYOND – Where Beauty Meets Health | AD

Skin+Beyond offers a unique and synergistic “All in one skin solution” that is vegan friendly and free from chemicals that can actually dysregulate the skin microbiome.(1)

Our premium, synergistic blend of patented Pomegranate extract, Glycine and Niacinamide balances your gut,  re-energises your skin cells, and increases collagen synthesis for smoother, firmer skin.

Pomegranate extract (POMx) is unique as a skincare ingredient due to its combined potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and prebiotic properties when ingested, boosting the gut that is connected to the skin via the gut-skin axis; hence the reason gut dysfunction manifests in skin issues such as acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and more.

Punicalagins are a class of potent bioactive, free radical scavengers unique to pomegranate that protect the collagen and elastin producing cells, dermal fibroblasts from UV damage. In fact Professor Mark Birch Machin, a leading anti-ageing expert at Newcastle University concluded in a study that POMx protected these fibroblasts from UV damage similar to MitoQ, a £60 per month antioxidant.(2)

POMx produces the gut metabolite Urolithin A that increases type 1 collagen expression and reduces the damage to collagen and elastin.(3) Further the study compared retinol with urolithin A and postulated that they both show the aforementioned attributes, but went on to say that urolithin A also boosts the body’s own antioxidant defence system e.g. glutathione. Urolithin A costs £75 per month to buy.

Furthermore glycine supplementation (10g per day) supports new collagen synthesis more effectively than collagen supplements(4), and protects collagen from degradation via glycation when sugars react with proteins. POMx also prevents collagen breakdown by inhibiting the enzymes collagenase and elastase and type I cross linking.(5)

POMx has demonstrated in lab studies to boost the production of hyaluronic acid production, helping to keep skin moist and plump(6), and protects against UV induced skin pigmentation by controlling melanin synthesis via the inhibition of tyrosinase.(7)

Other ingredients in Skin+Beyond, the two forms of B3, niacin and niacinamide offer complementary and unique attributes to POMx and glycine e.g. boosting ceramide and keratin production, protecting against free radicals and improving skin conditions including acne.(8)

Further both forms of B3 are precursors for the synthesis of NAD+, a key molecule in cellular energy production and longevity; optimum cellular energy is key to slowing down the ageing process.

Using Honey for Your Skin: 7 Amazing Benefits

The appeal of hybrid products

With the growing market for ingestibles like collagenfor inside-out beauty, the appeal of hybrid products and the boom in veganism as cited by Mintel Research(9), Skin+Beyond is perfectly placed to offer tangible benefits for multiple applications.

Further Mintel cites the link between collagen and fitness, joint health and mobility demonstrating a link between the beauty world and the health and fitness world.(10) This is good news for Skin+Beyond as a sports performance and recovery offering by improving performance and recovery(11), boosting collagen more effectively than collagen products(3), and protects that collagen from breakdown.(4) Furthermore glycine improves muscle strength and endurance during exercise, reduces risk of injury and improves the healing time of injuries.(12)

More benefits

If that wasn’t enough, Skin+Beyond excels as a real energy drink, unlike sugar and caffeine filled fake energy drinks, and you can read how these drinks trick the brain in the blog, “Why energy drinks are fake energy” on the website very soon.

Having real sustainable energy is all about preserving or boosting cellular energy production of muscle cells via their energy plants or mitochondria, and POMx with its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties protects mitochondria from free radical damage. This phenomenon translates to skin and all other tissues.

In 2019 Swiss(13) and Singapore(14) researchers found that pomegranate revealed its potential to prevent and even reverse sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass and strength in older people that starts around 40 and eventually leads to frailty, the root cause of chronic degeneration. Pomegranate improves or induces mitophagy, a mechanism in the body that recycles damaged mitochondria, boosting cellular energy status in muscle cells.

Pomegranate is often called “The heart fruit” due to the multi mechanisms of action it offers in preventing heart disease by lowering blood pressure, improving blood flow and oxygenation, reducing oxidised or damaged cholesterol, reducing arterial plaque including the carotid arteries that supply the brain with blood, thus reducing stroke risk.(15)

POMx polyphenols in S+B stimulate the growth of Akkermansia Muciniphila, a novel probiotic that has proven anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, weight loss and gut health properties(16); it costs £85 per month to buy.

Skin+Beyond’s multiple mechanisms of action are what gives it infinite health benefits that you can read shortly throughout the blog posts on the website as evidenced by pomegranate, glycine and niacinamide’s 2,500, 25,000 and 1,000 clinical studies respectively on PubMed, the open access health database held at the US Government’s National Institutes of Health.

Why not just take pomegranate? The bioactive polyphenols like punicalagins are concentrated to 30%, whereas the juice only contains small concentrations and the arils none at all since they reside in the husk.
