After years of research, MRVL SKIN SOLUTIONS has discovered The Blue Scorpion Peptide, a combination of amino acids, proteins, enzymes and antioxidants that deliver transformative anti-aging results. For the first time ever in luxury skincare, this breakthrough proprietary peptide is being introduced, alongside our potent formulas that contain powerful active ingredients.
About Blue Scorpions
Native to the Caribbean, the Blue Scorpion possesses a venom that for centuries was believed to have important medicinal uses. After decades of researching this natural phenomenon, scientists discovered a peptide contained in the venom that has powerful properties in multiple applications. Today, Blue Scorpion venom is the most expensive liquid in the world.
GENERAL Science on Blue Scorpion Peptide
SPECIFIC CLAIMS WITH SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT
MRVL has identified a new peptide within the venom which has been registered with the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients Board and has been given the INCI name “Blue Scorpion Venom.” Our trade name is Blue Scorpion Peptide. The Blue Scorpion Peptide has been studied for it benefits and the following has been established scientifically:
Blue Scorpion Peptide is rich in proteins and enzymes such as Hyaluronidase, a glycosidase enzyme, which is a delivery mechanism that will effectively and efficiently deliver the other beneficial skin compounds contained in the formulation.
Hyaluronidase is a “rocket ship” for active key ingredients which speeds up the delivery and is how we get deeper and more effective penetration and more absorption of the other ingredients by breaking down the extracellular matrix and penetrating the epidermis and reaching the dermis layer of the skin.
ANTIOXIDANT: Many Individual compounds found in the Blue Scorpion Peptide have antioxidant properties and working together they provide greater antioxidant capacity to protect the skin; the antioxidant compounds scavenge reactive species and neutralize them and protect the skin cells against damage.
The antioxidant properties also counteract unstable free radicals that can damage skin cells and cellular components.
Definition of hyaluronidase: a mucolytic enzyme that facilitates the spread of fluids through tissues by lowering the viscosity of hyaluronic acid
*Hyaluronic acid responds to hyaluronidase through a mechanism of breaking the glucosaminidic bond of the HA product and stimulating tissue absorption in the area. The destruction of this bond changes the molecular structure, or the moiety, of the product’s cohesiveness and thus allows the product to be infiltrated by the body’s own process for absorption of the residual by-products as a result of the dispersion ( Kassir, Kolluru, & Kassir, 2011 ).
