If you've never heard of Gaba before, it's because we are the first brand in Brazil to use this substance in skincare formulations, showing once more how technology, sustainability, and high performance always go hand in hand with Simple. See what Gaba is and why you should include it in your skincare routine.
WHAT IS GABA?
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is a neurotransmitter that inhibits certain signs and reduces activity in the central nervous system. In the human body, Gaba has a relaxing function, assisting in the combat against anxiety, stress, and even fear. Very well-known in the supplement world, it's often used as a natural sedative to help induce sleep.
Ok, but what does it have to do with skincare?
GABA AND SKINCARE
Gaba is an amino acid that can also be extracted from the fermentation of corn. When used in skincare products, the substance can relax muscles without paralyzing them. This signals the skin to stop tensing, causing an instant lifting effect.
NATURAL LIFTING EFFECT: UNDERSTAND HOW THIS PROCESS WORKS
There are Gaba receptors on the skin's surface, responsible for controlling skin relaxation and tension. When you apply this substance, using Gaba Serum, these receptors are activated and temporarily interrupt the signals that make the skin contract. Because of its relaxing action, Gaba will be mature skin's newest ally, acting directly in combating and preventing fine lines.
GABA FOR MATURE SKIN
Here at Simple Organic, we innovate once more, combining high performance and technology by launching the Gaba Serum. Perfect for mature skin hoping to obtain a lifting effect, this serum also provides various benefits for all skin types.
Stimulates natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid;
Soothes and prevents fine lines;
Improves skin elasticity;
Reestablishes skin's exuberance and luminosity;
Reduces the appearance of dilated pores;
Maintains skin's protection barrier;
Balances the skin's microbiome;
Evens skin tone.
Even though Gaba relaxes the skin immediately, offering the lifting effect, it's necessary to use this substance long-term to feel permanent results. After using it for 8 weeks, the results are incredible. The skin is more even, with less dilated pores, and smoother, with the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
An important ally in fighting fine lines, Gaba has a scientifically proven action according to efficacy evaluation done by Bloomage Biotech.
After using it for 12 weeks, the reduction of fine lines and the increase of 10% in skin elasticity were evident.
