It All Started with a Hike, a Hatchery and Hands
Discovered in the pure fjords of Western Norway in one of Norway’s leading salmon hatcheries. co-founder/CEO Patti Pao noticed that the workers’ hands, which are submerged in water all day, looked as if they were in their 20’s, while their faces looked like their actual ages of 40+ years. When baby salmon are born, they release an enzyme which enables them to get out of their egg shell. This enzyme when applied to skin provides the same benefits as glycolic acid but without the side effects.
This enzyme has two components: a protein and an exfoliant. The protein attaches itself to the specific area of dead skin cells and acts as a marker for the exfoliant. The exfoliant then dissolves the area of dead skin cells marked by the protein. Once it has finished, it turns itself off. This enables the baby salmon to exit from the opening carved out by the enzyme and swim away unharmed.
When the enzyme is applied to skin, it just dissolves the dead skin cells and when finished turns itself off thereby allowing the living cells to flourish and thrive. This is different from traditional enzymes such as glycolic acid and Retin A which work by chemically burning through the layers of living and dead skin cells thereby causing side effects such as redness, flaking, peeling and thinning skin that is sensitive to light. Note that it takes time for the enzyme to work through the wall of dead skin cells which is why Restorsea products must be used EVERY DAY TWICE A DAY for 12 weeks in order to see results.
