Hyaluronic Acid is a natural structural component of the skin, and is present in connective tissue throughout the human body. It has been well documented that newborn skin contains large amounts of HA and that it decreases as we age. Therefore, a practical way to recapture youth is by applying pure HA topically to revitalize the damaged and decreased HA content of the skin. It penetrates the skin’s upper layers to improve and benefit the skin.
- Hyaluronic acid molecules have a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times their weight in water…thus HA is a hydration agent to your skin.
- HA firms, plumps and smooths skin for a younger, fresher, more radiant look and feel.
- HA penetrates the skin’s layers better and restores natural and youthful elasticity to the skin.
- HA can be used for post laser treatments, post peels, and sunburns.
- HA is fantastic for itchy, flaky red skin that gets red and is scaly and dry.
- HA also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.

At Cynergy Health Science, we have formulated an organic, daily facial moisturizer and anti-aging lotion which relieves the appearance of aging skin, blemishes and blotchiness. We call this a "face finishing moisturizer". Along with other antioxidants like Vitamins C and E, it also contains Ellagic Acid which helps to protect the skin from cellular damage caused by sun and chemical exposure, both of which lead to a proliferation of free radicals. These free radicals cause a breakdown in the production of collagen, one of the essential supporting proteins that give skin elasticity and flexibility. Without adequate collagen production, skin begins to sag and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Antioxidants such as Ellagic Acid inhibit this process, destroying free radicals thus allowing collagen production to go on unimpeded. But Ellagic Acid is no ordinary antioxidant! It also has the ability to directly inhibit certain known carcinogens, such as nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, from binding to DNA. This further protects skin on a cellular level against the ravages of UV radiation.
Cynergy Health Science has formulated the most effective ANTI-AGING products found in today's market. Our skin care line is packed full of ANTIOXIDANTS, VITAMINS, MINERALS and the latest technology to give you the HEALTHIEST and most RADIANT skin possible.
Marula Oil is extraordinary plant oil, indigenous to regions in Africa including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, and Zambia, Mozambique, and Swaziland. Its origin dates as far back as 10,000 – 9,000 BC on the African continent where the Marula Fruit was first discovered. Archaeological evidence shows that the Marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea) has been in existence since then. Stones of the fruit from this period were found in the Pomongwe Caves in Zimbabwe. Since ancient times, the African women have cracked the nut of the Marula fruit to extract the precious kernels from which the oil is made. The fruit, bark, kernels, roots and even the leaves were used in indigenous medicines, as preservatives and for food.
The Marula Tree is considered one of Southern Africa’s most revered botanical treasures. It thrives in hot, dry climatic conditions and grows 10-17 meters tall (up to about 65 feet) and is found in low altitudes and open woodland areas. It is an extraordinary “wild” tree that is uncultivated by man and is protected under the Forest Act and other Laws that prohibit the cutting down of trees. The Marula tree bears fruit from January to March starting at the age of 7-10 years. Fruiting continues well after the tree reaches 100 years of age.
The ripened fruit of the Marula tree is yellow to light orange in color with a very thick skin and possesses about 8 times the amount of Vitamin C found in an orange. Marula fruit may be eaten fresh or used to make jellies, juices, and alcoholic beverages. Inside the fruit are hard-shelled seeds which contain two to three kernels. Marula oil is extracted from these kernels. The kernels are so full of oil that a squeeze with the hand can release a rich yield. The oil has numerous skin benefits and is used as a cosmetic by Southern African women by massaging it onto the skin of their face, feet, and hands. They knew that the Marula kernel yielded oil that could both moisturize and protect their skin. The oil is so effective that it is also used to treat leather and preserve meat.
The bark of the Marula tree is of value also. It is brewed to create a tonic which is used as part of a cleansing ritual prior to marriage ceremonies by many cultures, thus calling it the “Marriage Tree”. Southern African women use the bark to treat fever, malaria, scorpion stings and snake bites. The leaves are commonly used to treat heartburn and indigestion while other parts of the tree may be harvested for use in certain tribal ink preparations, for creating dyes for craft wares, and for making rope.
Today, Marula Oil is a precious source of income for those involved in collecting the fallen fruit, cracking the nuts and producing the pure oil. Men and women alike, have a chance of guaranteed work in rural areas where there is massive unemployment. The income earned from Marula Oil helps to pay for household needs and the education of their children. To understand its rich history, its cultural uses, and healing properties…is to appreciate the unique heritage of Marula oil. It truly is the “Miracle Oil” of Africa.
By now, your beauty cupboards are likely stocked with coconut oil and argan oil not to mention a whole slew of other beauty products the industry has sold you on. But if you haven't heard of Marula Oil, then you really need to listen up!
The Marula fruit, called the “Golden Fruit of East Africa” has been used for over 10,000 years for medicinal, dietary, and health purposes. This healing oil is widely used for its medicinal benefits by Southern African women and men and has been part of numerous beauty rituals for centuries to protect the skin and hair from the harsh and dry weather conditions. Marula oil is harvested from the nut inside the sweet Marula fruit. Cynergy Health Science has harnessed the power of the Marula Oil with its excellent skin rejuvenating properties and tremendous stabilities while containing oleic acid, linoleic, palmitic and stearic acids.
Marula Oil outperforms all known natural liquid oils and can be easily absorbed, maximizing its potency. Whether used unrefined on its own (Pure Marula Oil) or as a key ingredient in a more complicated product (Marula Mask) it is light in texture, super-fast absorbing, packed with nutrients and fatty acids that fight environmental aggressors, and is absolutely amazingly hydrating. Marula Oil contains proteins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes which make it ideal for skin care products.
It works for every skin type: From dry to oily to sensitive skin, it's always naturally soothing, fast-absorbing, and never leaves a greasy residue.
It balances moisture levels and softens skin: Whether it is used on its own or added to a skin product, a few drops on the face, neck, and décolleté will lock in moisture without leaving a thick residue. Plus, it will fight off free radicals that threaten your complexion.
It is an anti-ager: It is chock full of fatty acids and omega oils, as well as Vitamins E and C, which work together to repair free radical damage, like that from the sun exposure or pollution, which accelerate aging. It's been shown to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep-set wrinkles.
It fights acne, as well as treats blemishes and scars: Thanks to its hydrating and antimicrobial properties, applying it to your problem areas can help reduce the size and appearance of all kinds of blemishes. It can also reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
So…set aside your other oils…give Marula Oil a try! You won’t regret it.
Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” We all know this mode of expression and know exactly what it means. However, you can take this idiom literally in how you take care of the health of your skin and make the aging process a lot easier. We all know that, at first sight, we are basically judged on how we look. With the right skin care products, we can all look healthy and beautiful, no matter who is looking and who is judging! Here are several ways to have healthy skin that radiates a youthful appearance and glows with less sagging and wrinkles.
Best possible skin care products
We all know that when we go to a store or online to buy skin care products, there are so many different brands to choose from. It can be hard and frustrating to find the one skin care product that will be the best among all the other products. The first mistake that so many women make is the fact that they are trying to buy the cheapest type of product they can find. The cheapest product isn’t always the best product. Sometimes you need to spend a little extra money to make sure that you’re buying the best products, and not just the cheapest ones.
Spotting the best products from the rest
Many women struggle trying to figure out which products would work best for them. If you learn what the different ingredients are and which ones are the best for you, your age and your type of skin, then you will not struggle to find the best products for your face. For example: With anti-aging creams, you need to look for specific ingredients to know that this product is a great anti-aging cream that will deliver the results you are looking for. Doing your homework and researching about all the different ingredients will make it easier to buy the best products that will make a difference in the appearance of your skin.
Beauty is more than just beautiful skin that is glowing and healthy. Just buying skin care products isn’t enough to start looking great and feeling beautiful. You need to start from the inside out. Create a great lifestyle that is healthy. Start exercising, eating healthier and… smile a lot more…even if you know that smiling is going to give you a few wrinkles! You now have the knowledge to buy the best anti-wrinkle creams to cover up those wrinkles caused my smiling. Changing your lifestyle and focusing on being happy yourself is the one thing that no one can take away from you!
A balanced life
Having a balanced life is really important to look your best. As we age, wrinkles appear and skin sags, and yes…it gets harder and harder to try to look and feel beautiful. It is frustrating and tiring to continue to constantly be trying to “turn back the clock”. But, with the right skin care products, you can slow this process down a bit and become the beautiful person (inside and out) you were meant to be. If you don’t feel beautiful, it shows. When you are happy and taking care of yourself…that shows. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but if you take care of yourself from the inside out, you will be beautiful no matter what.
