AC-11 is derived from an Amazon River basin plant called Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa), which has long been used in Peruvian traditional medicines to treat skin redness, blistering, and pain from sun exposure. AC-11 activates formation of new outer layers of the skin, bringing fresh cells to the surface and shedding old dull rough cells. These new layers, by the action of AC-11, also contain higher levels of skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF). So the skin is better hydrated, more resistant to water loss, and less rough, creating a smooth surface for applying other skin care products.Another remarkable effect of AC-11 is repair. It is a potent enhancer of DNA repair, helping the skin recover from damage and stress. And adding in its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, AC-11 helps create more youthful skin that is healthier and more resistant to the damaging effects of sunlight.
