FAQ

Common questions that other people wonder about.

What is autophagy?

Autophagy (au-to-pha-gy) is our body’s natural cellular process of detoxification whereby our cells recycle waste materials and turn them into energy that helps them maintain optimal cellular function. In skin autophagy enables our cells to clear out the ‘junk’ (including environmental toxins and other cellular debris) that clogs their cellular function, enabling cells to restore their optimal vitality and behave more youthfully. But, like most cellular functions, our autophagy naturally declines as we age, causing the build-up of aging toxins in our cells, hence why we have to give our skin help to re-activate autophagy as we age.

What ingredients are in your Cellular Rejuvenation Complex? How do they work to activate autophagy in skin?

Our Cellular Rejuvenation Complex is made up of known natural autophagy-activating ingredients including Trehalose, Navarra (White) Asparagus, Caffeine, Ceramides and Citrus Bergamot extract. Each of these ingredients activates autophagy independently, but what makes our complex special is that they have been combined in such a way they activate autophagy across all 3 key cellular receptor pathways for a powerful rejuvenation effect in skin clinically proven to be more effective than the lead prescription-grade autophagy-activating product (Rapamycin).

How will I know when my autophagy has been activated? Will there be any irritation in my skin?

OMI products help stimulate the natural skin cell process of autophagy, which helps skin cells perform more effectively and behave more youthfully, resulting in a decrease of visible signs of aging. Our products contain high levels of actives which may cause some irritation in very sensitive skin however there should be no irritation caused by autophagy activation.

What do you mean by Skin Nutrition? How do your ingredients work to re-balance the nutrition in my skin?

Our expert team of nutritionists, dermatologists and cellular biologists designs each product to provide the right balance of nutrition for skin, considering both its essential and custom needs:

  • Our products contain the essential nutrition skin needs to function optimally, including Collagen (Skin’s key Beauty Protein and the building block for skin), Omegas 6 and 9 (known to help boost the skin’s natural barrier to prevent dehydration), Ceramides (known to help build a healthy skin matrix and keep skin plump) and Skin Superfoods including Resveratrol, Citrus Bergamot and Lychee extract.
  • Our formulas are further boosted by a balanced blend of key skin nutrients, from Vitamins A, C and E to Flavonoids, Paracress Extract, Daisy Extract and a natural, plant-
    derived Retinol to deliver on specific benefits, whether evening skin tone and reducing dark spots, firming skin, lifting deeper lines and wrinkles or smoothing skin and bringing back it’s natural glow.
