Section I: Senegence International

SeneGence is a multi-faceted, international corporation that is committed to making a


positive contribution to women everywhere.

Mission Statement
“To empower women around the world with a career that
really works using products that really work.”
SeneGence is dedicated to the success of its Distributors by supporting you with the highest
standards of ethics, products, and technologies available, as well as promoting the concept
and execution of SeneSenergy.

SeneSenergy: To abundantly empower others to promote success and growth, and in doing
so, re-energizing your own.

Evolution of SeneGence
SeneGence is a privately owned, direct sales company that is in the business of developing
and selling personal care products through an independent sales network. In April 1999,
SeneGence opened for business with only 6 lip colors, a lip moisturizing gloss and a lip
color remover. LipSense Liquid Lip Color was its premier product. SeneGence now has a
complete long-lasting cosmetic color line, anti-aging skin care, and body care.

The company will continue to utilize its unique ingredients and technologies for further
development of new and exciting ‘products that really work’ for our Distributors to sell.
Expansion into the international market began with the opening of Canada in November
2001, and Australia in February 2003.

Through the efforts of Founder, CEO and Chairwoman, Joni Rogers-Kante and the
organization of Independent Distributors, SeneGence has become a recognized brand
name and international leader of long-lasting, anti-aging color cosmetics and skin care in
the cosmetics and beauty industry.

Blue and Gold with Hues of Green


Blue and Gold may be the colors of SeneGence Products, but “Green” has been the color
that continues to influence many decisions from the onset of the Company’s basic product
and business philosophies and it defines our daily practices.

10 Section I: Senegence International


Preface

A Word From Joni…..

This manual was written for you by me hoping it will help you better understand how fantastic our
product line REALLY IS … and therefore HOW HUGE OUR OPPORTUNITY REALLY IS!

I felt compelled to define OUR products and our product ingredients one-by-one and explain why
these beauty products REALLY DO work on our skin; so then we together better understand the
significance of our formulations and make it easier for you to explain to Customers and Downline
Distributors why our products are superior to others found in the marketplace.

Have you ever experienced watching people try to sell some product that they themselves do
not understand? It is exhilarating to observe a person who is very knowledgeable about his/her
product(s) and obviously believes in the product and presents the items to a potential buyer who
has pertinent questions; the wealth of knowledge and belief in the product demonstrated by the
seller is ‘infectious’ and changes that doubting consumer into a transformed believer and buyer.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER AND I WANT YOU TO BE VERY POWERFUL!

This manual serves as a learning reference guide and does not need to be read in one sitting. I
recommend reading sections two through four to best understand the premises upon which our
entire product line is built to help make skin more beautiful. Then on an ‘as needed’ basis turn to
each product and ‘study-up’.

Written from a novice and therefore easy-to-understand point-of–view; each beauty product contains:
• Title and Description of the Product
• The Science Behind the Product
• Key Ingredients and Benefits
• Directions for Use

Most importantly, your knowledge of the SeneDerm and SenseCosmetic product lines will help you
make the lives of women all over the world better because when their skin is moist and luminous, is
devoid of unnecessary fine lines and wrinkles, and when their color cosmetics are beautifully applied
and blended they feel more beautiful, vibrant, and radiant from head to toe.

“SeneSenergy: To abundantly empower others to promote success and growth, and in doing
so, re-energizing your own.”

“To empower women around the world with a career that really works using products that
really work.”

Love,

Founder & CEO

About Your Skin


• Healthy skin glows
• It’s dewy fresh
• It’s vibrant
• It’s the color of youth
• It’s vivacious
• It’s soft
• It’s fragrant
• It makes statements about you

What are the right products needed to care for your skin?

SeneDerm Anti-Aging SkinCare Systems:


SeneDerm Anti-Aging SkinCare Systems and anti-aging SenseCosmetics are the most
effective anti-aging treatments known in today’s personal care and cosmetics industries.

Products that help rather than harm your skin. Products that are tested for results.

Since the beginning of time, mankind has explored the clinical applications of natural
substances (botanical extracts) with impressive results. It is known and recorded that
the ancient Chinese, Egyptian, and Babylonian cultures had knowledge of drugs and the
compounding of botanicals for pharmaceutical and cosmetic use.

The Science of Your Skin


Today, modern scientists are once again turning to nature’s gifts and today’s botanicals to
be used individually or in combination with each other to create a harmonious effect. The
SeneDerm formula incorporates many beneficial botanicals and blends them with powerful
antioxidants and essential vitamins to create a product line that can truly revitalize the skin.
Isn’t that what we’re looking for-renewed and revitalized skin reminiscent of our early, vital
baby skin! We start aging from the moment we’re born, but the aging process, up until the
middle to late 20s, only seems to improve our beauty... and with so little help from us. By
the mid to late 20s, we have begun to see the skin in motion: the first hints of the way our
face will age. The eyes start first. No particular preference shown here, it’s just that the skin,
especially on the upper lids, is thinner than on any other part of the body and has fewer oil
glands to keep it moist and young looking. Our first hints of aging usually start there.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 15


Written not only to give you the information you need to help others obtain a healthy glowing
complexion, additionally, this booklet also helps you understand what happens to your skin
and why it happens. Knowledge is power. And power in a woman’s hands is beautiful.

Our Youthful Skin


Do you remember what your skin looked like as a baby? Soft, smooth, clear, almost
translucent and healthy. Baby skin is new, not yet touched by life, not yet touched or
impacted by life’s stresses, joys, chemical or ecological damage, poor nutrition, or just the
natural aging process.

Can you ever get back that ‘young’ skin? No, for you will never be a baby again. But with
the right choices you can slow down the aging process and get the best skin your body
can offer. We see the second sign of the skin’s aging process in the puffiness we find as
we awake in the morning. Why is this? Well, it is because water is in our skin. Our skin is
a living, breathing organ made up of billions of cells floating in a watery, salty liquid. This
liquid makes up about 70% of our body. Of this 70%, more than one third of it is found in
the skin. Water always gravitates to stationary areas. When we sleep, the water in our facial
skin settles under the eyes.

As we start moving and putting our body in motion, the puffiness disappears, because the
water is reabsorbed throughout the skin. In our late 20s, this re-absorption doesn‘t happen
as naturally any longer. For over 20 years, the delicate under eye tissue has been stretching
to accommodate these fluids. Now, this helpful accommodation has weakened the tissues
and the skin starts to sag. By our 30s, because cellular regeneration is slowing down, fine
lines and wrinkles may begin to appear.

By our 40s (even our 30s at times), fat loss may begin; resulting in excess skin that arranges
itself in sags and folds. The initial signs are horizontal lines across the forehead and some
droopiness of the eyelids. Loss of fat in the cheeks can cause the formation of puffy jowls
on each side of the chin and lips may thin. And something else is added to the first signs of
sagging ... the skin causes shadows, which eventually become dark circles under the eyes.
The aging process has NOW begun.

By our 50s, postmenopausal epidermal cell generation slows by almost 50%. The skin
then becomes thinner and less flexible. There is less collagen and elastin in the skin. It is
now less able to repair damage or retain its critical moisture level. Also, at this time, the
sebaceous glands (the glands the teens hate and adults love because of their oil discharge)
begin cutting back their discharge of oil. Now, the oil that has previously coated the skin
and locked in its moisture diminishes. With the diminished supply of these oils, the skin
becomes more dry and wrinkles are more evident. The skin becomes more transparent and
bruises easily. And then, this leads to more wrinkles and more sag. We all have either seen
this happen or will see it happen. This we can’t stop. The aging process of the skin is a fact
of life. But we can slow it down. How? Through knowledge about what the skin is and how
it works. Armed with this knowledge, we have the ability to choose the best products and
habits for our skin’s optimum health and beauty.

16 Section II: About Your Skin


Structure of the Skin
The skin is the largest organ of the body in terms of surface area. For the average adult,
the skin occupies a surface area of approximately 3,000 square inches (or more than 2
square yards).

Although the average thickness of your skin is 1/10 of an inch, it ranges from the very thin
top of the eyelids and inner folds of the elbows, to the very thick on the palms of your
hands and soles of your feet. It is classified as an organ because it consists of tissues
structurally joined together to perform specific activities. It is not just a simple covering; skin
covers our body’s entire surface and protects our internal organs from the elements and the
environment. In other words, it keeps the insides in and the outsides out. Separating these
two aspects is an important job.

The skin reacts to everything that touches it and much of what touches it adversely affects
it; many ingredients used daily are harmful to the health and appearance of our skin: daily
lifestyle, exposure to sun and pollution, poor eating habits, and the environment in general
are major contributors that damage our cells and result in the signs of aging.

Additionally, products containing harmful chemicals add to the advancement of the aging
process. This is the baby boomer generation. As this generation ages, it will focus on
minimizing the signs of aging skin, as well as protecting the skin from further damage. And
in this era of cosmetics, we are better equipped than ever before to deal with skin conditions
associated with aging, including hyper-pigmentation, hormonal fluctuations, and damage
from sun exposure, dehydration, disorders, adult acne, and increased hypersensitivity.

The list of potentially harmful exponents could be overwhelming if our skin wasn’t such a
finely honed machine of layers, each layer working both independently and interdependently.
The first layer is the Epidermis. The epidermis is the purely cellular layer of skin. It is the
thinnest skin layer but also the strongest layer. It forms the outer, protective barrier of the
skin. (This includes the hair, toenails, and fingernails.) It consists of cells, which protect us
from ultraviolet radiation, form part of the immune system, and intercept foreign substances
that try to pass through. It also contains cells that produce the pigment melanin, which
determines the color of your skin. In addition, the epidermis has numerous nerve endings,
which make the skin into a sensory organ that detects hot, cold, light, taste, touch, and can
show emotions (turn pale or blush).

It is where old cells are sloughed off and new cells take their place. In the approximately
20-30 days it takes for new cells to move upward to the outer surface, nourishment of these
epidermal layers is provided by tissue fluids which diffuse up from the spaces among the
cells of the dermis, the next layer. As the cells move away from their source of nourishment,
they become smaller and flatter, changing into a lifeless protein called keratin. Once on the
surface, they remain briefly as a protective cover and then flake off as a result of washing
and friction, thus constantly being replenished.

The next layer, the Dermis is a thick, supple, sturdy layer of connective tissue. It makes
up about 90% of the skin’s thickness and is the skin’s layer most affected by the aging
process. It is where the fibrous “support system” of the skin, the collagen and elastin, (two
connecting types of protein) is housed. It is made up of the blood vessels, lymph vessels,
nerves and sensory receptors (which give us our ability to feel and have sensations), sweat
glands (which cool the body), and oil glands: the oil or sebaceous glands are responsible for

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 17


the excretion of the skin’s natural oil or sebum, and are found at the base of each hair follicle.
They secrete an oily substance called sebum, which waterproofs the hair and lubricates
the skin but create pimples and blackheads if they overproduce. Next, are the hair follicles,
fibrous supporting tissue, and finally collagen, a protein that is able to combine with water
(unlike oil which repels water).

Since the skin is almost 70% water, this moisture absorbing attribute of collagen is important.
It is the collagen in our bodies and especially in our faces, which provide the skin with a soft,
moist, webbed cushion that not only gives it plumpness but also gives it the ability to stretch
and fold as your body and face moves. The younger we are the more natural collagen our
bodies have.

The collapsing of collagen is what contributes to the wrinkling and sagging of the skin. If you
think of these fibers as the framework within your skin, you can understand what happens
when this supporting structure falls down. The dermis actually caves in and the effect on
the skin’s surface is a wrinkle. Under the dermis is the deepest layer of the skin, composed
primarily of fat. It manages the skin’s functions of feeding, excreting and heat exchange.
These fat cells serve as a heat insulator for the body, act as a shock absorber against
mechanical trauma and help give the skin resilience. Our sweat glands originate in this layer
and excrete waste matter through perspiration. They also control the body’s temperature by
perspiration evaporating from the surface of the skin.

It is the contraction of the muscles in the Dermis that creates “Goosebumps.” (An interesting
fact is that among mammals, only humans and marine mammals, such as dolphins and
whales, have this layer.)

Earlier we mentioned a sloughing off process in the epidermis. That process is so vitally
important and warrants more discussion. Our skin is the largest living and breathing organ.
So, how does our living, breathing skin become such a strong protection for us? The answer
is our outer layer of skin, the Epidermis, is not alive! It’s composed entirely of dead cells.
These dead cells are hard and strong enough to withstand almost anything that doesn’t
actually slice through it (bumping, scraping, or knocking around).

Another miraculous process occurs. Young, living cells are produced in the dermis. As
newer cells are born or produced, the older, more mature cells get pushed towards the
epidermis. While this movement is happening, the mature cells suddenly start producing
Keratin, the same hard substance found in our hair and nails, which are composed of dead
cells (because keratin is not a living substance). As the keratin production becomes more
powerful and starts to replace the collagen (the soft part of the living cell), the cell gets
harder and harder just like our nails.

By the time the cell travels from the dermis to the epidermis, it contains enough keratin to
protect our bodies from the elements: the wind, sea, or rain. The keratin is also especially
helpful in absorbing the harmful ultraviolet rays before they penetrate the skin’s surface.
Finally, its mission being fulfilled, the cell then dies and is sloughed off to make room for the
next wave of growing cells. Now you see that the very protective epidermis is nothing more
than an accumulation of dead cells that have been pushed up, ready for shedding. In fact,
did you know that 90% of household dust is sloughed off dead skin cells?

The skin must slough off these dead cells. Continual cellular and tissue regeneration
determines the health and vitality of the skin. If allowed to excessively accumulate, these

18 Section II: About Your Skin


dead cells can give the skin a dull, lifeless appearance and can block the pores, thus
preventing necessary emollients from reaching the part of the skin that needs it most. No
matter what kind of skin you have, your skin is what you are, wrinkles and all. It is what gives
you a glow or robs you of years. This is where the care or lack of it shows. The condition of
your skin gives everything away: your age, your health, your emotions, your habits. It says if
you’ve stayed up too late, been flying too often, smoke, are under stress, not exercising, not
eating properly, or not drinking enough water. The skin keeps no secrets. And it’s no secret
how you take care of your skin.

Although the term epidermis is frequently used as a synonym for the skin, it is actually the
name of the outer most layers only. Two layers of the skin lie beneath – the dermis and the
subcutaneous tissue.

The Epidermis
The epidermis is made of four layers, each of which performs important functions:
• Stratum Corneum–The outer coating of the epidermis consisting of compacted
dead cells called keratin, a dried out protein. This is the layer we feel and see.
• Stratum Granulosum–Beneath the stratum corneum, it acts as the feeder of dead
or dried out keratinocytes (skin cells) to the stratum corneum.
• Squamous Cell Layer–It functions as a transport medium for water and contains the
most abundant cells of the skin, squamous cells. This layer produces the cells for
the outermost layer, the stratum corneum.
• Basal Cell Layer–The lowest layer of the epidermis, and produces the squamous
cells and houses melanocytes. Melanocytes are cells that make melanin, the
skin pigment.

Skin Alert:

Melatonin protects your skin from sun damage. The darker your natural skin color is, the
more resistant it is to damage from the sun. Skin darkened by sun exposure does not count;
it does not provide more protection from sun damage. Cells of the basal layer take about
two weeks to migrate upwards to the stratum corneum. There they are compacted and after
another two weeks, they are shed. Thus, the usual turnover time of the epidermis is about
one month.

The Dermis
The second layer of skin is made up of three different types of skin fibers:
• Collagen–The backbone of the dermis, making up 70% of its weight and providing
most of its strength. Wrinkles form in the skin when collagen is depleted.
• Reticulum–The fibers that help link bundles of collagen together.
• Elastin–Fibers that help the dermis remain pliable.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 19


The Subcutaneous Layer
The third and innermost layer of the skin is the subcutaneous layer. It is composed of fat.
Like the dermis, this layer contains nerves, blood vessels, and lymph channels. The main
purpose of the subcutaneous layer is to serve as an insulator in order to conserve body
heat. It also functions as a shock absorber to protect the internal organs against trauma.

Nutrition, Medication, Dieting, and the Skin


People made connections between diet and skin symptoms long before physicians knew very
much about the subject. A typical example: many decades ago, British sailors discovered
that when they failed to eat citrus fruits during long sea voyages, a disease that became
known as scurvy developed. This disease was a result of a lack of vitamin C.

Moisturizing the Skin


Proper moisture is vital to healthy, beautiful skin. The keratinocytes of the epidermis have
high water content, but the moisture is continually being drawn out of the skin by our modern
environmental conditions such as centrally heated and cooled offices and homes in addition
to the sun, wind, and other environmental hazards from the atmosphere. This means that
the moisture is continually being drawn out of the skin. When the keratinocytes lose some
of their water content, small lines appear on the skin, and it loses its youthful bloom.

Hydrating skin and keeping it hydrated requires daily attention. The moisture content of
the skin can change from day-to-day. The moisture content of the skin is directly affected
by daily food and liquid intake, smoking, nutrition, and medications. Some days your skin
may require additional moisture due to the combined circumstances of the previous day’s
experiences. Learn to “listen to your skin.” If it feels dry, it needs extra moisture for the day.

Their discovery about the importance of eating citrus fruit took place long before vitamin C
had been isolated or named. Eventually, medicine became more aware of the role nutrition
plays in skin health and disease. A few examples of some of the most common modern
skin-related problems are:
• Lack of vitamin A causes dry eyes and skin
• Lack of niacin could lead to pellagra and dermatitis
• Lack of riboflavin produces cracked lips and groin rashes
• Lack of vitamin B6 causes seborrheic dermatitis on the face
• Lack of vitamin B12 results in hand rashes

Improper dietary intake is not the only reason for nutritional or caloric deficiencies. The
word malnutrition is often thought to refer to an insufficient quantity and variety of food,
mostly due to poverty and economic and/or social underdevelopment, and sometimes to
eating disorders.

However, malnutrition really refers to more than insufficient nutritional or caloric intake; it
includes nutritional deficiencies caused by modern day indulgent habits such as alcoholism,

20 Section II: About Your Skin


dieting, obesity, anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and the depletion of nutrients in our processed
foods standard diets.

All of these diseases, and the consequences of these diseases, play a major role in the
deterioration and aging of our skin from lack of proper nutrition and improper moisture
content required to reproduce healthy skin cells.

The Skin’s Worst Enemy–The Sun


Millions of cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in this country every year, making it the
most common type of cancer. Hundreds of thousands of cases of malignant melanoma (the
most deadly form of skin cancer) are discovered each year, resulting in over 75% of cancer
deaths. Sunlight is the reason this problem is so massive. Still people love to lie in the sun! In
addition to the damage direct and indirect sunlight causes to the skin, it has been found that
further damage may result when the sun’s rays are coupled with some ingredients found in
some topical skin care products and makeup that are not necessarily developed for proper
skin care maintenance and protection.

Further studies indicate accelerated dehydration and aging of the skin as a result of
the sun’s rays mixing with the skin of individuals whose bodies do not contain a proper
nutritional structure.

Skin Alert
• As the ozone layer of our atmosphere decreases, skin cancers will increase radically
in upcoming years. That makes the use of various types of sunscreen hypercritical.
• Sun damage is accumulative. But, it may be possible, by avoiding the sun for a
period of years and applying protective moisturizers, to actually reverse the damage
induced by the sun’s rays.
• The most susceptible people to skin cancer are fair skinned, blue-eyed, red-haired,
blonde, Scotch-Irish, Celtic, Nordic, and Scandinavian peoples. For these people,
a little bit of sun can be deadly.
• Reflected sun can sizzle your skin even faster than direct sunlight. Consider this
when you are outside around water, white sand, or any highly reflective surface.

Protective clothing, hats, SPF (Sun Protection Factor) protection should be used daily
by men, women, and children alike, to help combat the growing number of skin cancers
diagnosed every year.

Determining Skin Type


You want what you can trust when something is important to you. If beautiful skin is important
to you, ‘Listen To Your Skin’ then use a product that can guarantee results. The SeneDerm
SkinCare System guarantees that when you use the system as directed, you will see visible
results to your skin after only eight weeks of consistent use.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 21


Beautiful results and simple to use! The next step is just that, taking care of your skin: first,
knowing what type of skin you have and then knowing the best products to use on that
skin. The majority of people’s skin falls into four categories, even when the type of skin is
identified as normal. Those categories are Oily to Acne, Normal to Oily, Normal to Dry, and
Dry. The purpose of the SeneDerm system is to address each type of skin and bring its
particular characteristics back into proper balance.

Look In The Mirror First Thing In The Morning. Take A Good Look.

Oily to Acne Skin


Clear, smooth skin reflects beauty, good
health, and good hygiene by today’s
standards. Those who are blessed
with flawless complexions can seem
to be more confident, successful, and
generally pleasing individuals. Those not
so blessed with radiant complexions can
struggle to find methods to help eliminate
embarrassing and often painful problem areas that mar what could be beautiful complexions.

Adult acne affects 25% of all men and 50% of women at some time in their adult lives. People
can develop unpleasant acne or have an acne recurrence in their 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond.
Dermatologists find themselves seeing more adult acne patients than in previous decades.
An article in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science stated, “Recent epidemiological
studies show that there appears to be an increase in post-adolescent acne, and that the
disease is lasting longer and is requiring treatment well into the mid forties. Regardless of
when someone struggles with acne, it can be difficult to cope, and can cause depression
and social anxiety in an adult the same way it can in a teen.”

What is Acne?
Acne is a chronic disorder of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. Some of the
characteristics of acne include black heads, pimples, cysts, infected abscesses, and rarely
scarring. Acne usually occurs during adolescence in both men and women. To be more
specific, acne starts during puberty and tends to get worse for people with oily skin.

Symptoms of Acne
The common symptoms of acne include persistent, recurrent red spots or swellings on the
skin known as pimples. Some of the other symptoms include dark spots with open pores at
the center, which are known as blackheads, bulged spots under the skin without openings,
which are known as whiteheads, and red swellings or lumps filled with pus, which are known
as pustules. Inflamed fluid-filled lumps under the skin known as cysts are also a symptom
of acne. These cysts can become as large as an inch across.

22 Section II: About Your Skin


Types of Acne
Acne starts in a similar way for all but can take different forms and can react in a unique
way according to the body conditions of the individual. A basic lesion called the comedo is
the beginning of acne. The comedo is an enlarged hair follicle plugged with oil and bacteria
residing under the surface of your skin, that waits for the right conditions to grow into an
inflamed lesion.

Two main types of acne include non-inflammatory acne and inflammatory acne.

Non-inflammatory Acne
Closed Comedo: If the plugged follicle stays
below the surface of the skin, the lesion is
called a closed comedo. This usually appears
on the skin as small, whitish bumps. This
condition is otherwise called a whitehead.

Open: If the plug enlarges and pushes through the surface of the skin, the lesion is
called an open comedo. The dark appearance of the plug is not due to dirt, but due
to the buildup of melanin, the pigmentation element of the skin. This condition is
otherwise called a blackhead.

Inflammatory Acne
There are many indicators for inflammatory Acne:

Papule: This appears on the skin as a


small, firm pink bump. The papules are
tender in nature and are often considered
an intermediary step between non-
inflammatory and clearly inflammatory
lesions.

Pustule: These are small round lesions


that are inflamed and contain visible
pus, which appear red at the base with
a yellowish or whitish center. Pustules
do not contain a large amount of
bacteria. The inflammation is caused
by chemical irritation from sebum components such as fatty free acids.

Cyst: These are large pus-filled lesions that are usually present deep within the skin.
The cysts are very painful lesions, as they are inflamed.
Cysts form as a result of the contents of a comedo
spilling over the surrounding skin and due to the

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 23


response of the local immune system in producing pus. The cysts often leave
deep scars.

Acne Conglobata: This is a rare but serious form of inflammatory acne that develops
primarily on the back, buttocks, and chest. In addition, to the presence of pustules
and cysts, there may be severe bacterial infection.

Is Acne More Common in Teenagers?


Acne is more common in the age group of 13–30 years but it may occur or persist even
beyond this age limit. Males are more frequently affected than females due to androgen
activity. Females may get a pre-menstrual flare due to the increase in level of a hormone
called Progesterone.

How do Pimples Form?


The skin has minute glands called sebaceous glands which open into
the hair follicle. These glands secrete an oily substance called sebum,
which empties into the skin surface through the hair follicle. During
puberty, the male sex hormones which are normally present both in
males and females are on the rise and they activate the sebaceous
glands to increase in size, which in turn leads to increase in the secretion
of sebum.

Secondly, the cells are shed more rapidly and they stick together,
plugging the opening of the hair follicle, resulting in ‘white heads’. The
pigment melanin in the white heads when exposed to air, forms black
heads.

Thirdly, bacteria especially the


‘propionibacterium acne’ in number
and add to the formation of acne.
When the follicle gets clogged, its
wall ruptures. The sebum, bacteria
and dead cells escape into the
surrounding tissue and lead to
formation of more severe form of
acne in form of pustules, nodules, abscesses and cysts.

What are the Factors Affecting the Formation of Acne?


Acne commonly occurs in people who:
1. Are genetically predisposed.
2. Use of cosmetics such as creams, oil based moisturizers, oil based foundations,
etc.

24 Section II: About Your Skin


3. Apply heavy oil or gel on the scalp; this leads to pimples on the back
and forehead.
4. Work in chemical or oil industries and come in contact with hydrocarbons, heavy
oils, cutting oil, wax, grease and coal tar derivatives.
5. Work in hot and humid climates.
6. Take drugs such as oral contraceptives, steroids, isoniazid, lithium, phenytoin,
iodides etc.
7. Squeeze or pick a pre-existing lesion, which often leads to secondary infection
and increased pigmentation.
8. Are stressed.

Your skin is oily or acne prone when you note an all over shiny appearance and oily feel
throughout the day. Skin tone reflects discoloration variances, blemishes often or occasionally,
whiteheads, blackheads, and enlarged pores.

Normal To Oily Skin


The skin’s natural oils come from the sebaceous glands. When these glands produce too
much oil, it quickly rises to the epidermis layer and creates an oily skin surface. The most
common place for oil to gather is the T-Zone. If your skin looks shiny and greasy (particularly
around the nose, chin and forehead (the T-Zone), has large pores, is prone to or has
pimples/blackheads, and feels rough and uneven, you have OILY skin. The key to treating
and correcting oily skin is to remove excess oils while maintaining the moisture necessary
for young, healthy skin. If your client’s skin is determined to be oily or normal to oily, the
SeneDerm SkinCare formula for normal to oily would be used. These advanced formulas,
based upon results from clinical testing, maximize moisture and hydration while controlling
sebum production, without stripping the skin’s surface.

Normal To Dry Skin


The sebaceous glands produce the skin’s natural oil lubricant. When these glands are not
producing enough oil or when environmental factors such as detergents, heat, smoking, or
alcohol remove the oil, the skin becomes dry.

Dry skin can be extremely uncomfortable and subject to premature wrinkling. If your skin
looks and feels tight (especially after cleansing), and is “thin,” flaky, or papery with fine
pores, has a dull texture, is prone to broken veins on the cheeks, has dry patches on the
throat, cheeks, and temples, and can react by becoming red and blotchy, you have DRY
skin. Your skin will develop lines more easily than other skin types.

By adding moisture, it is possible to return dry skin to its most balanced state: soft, supple,
and glowing. If your skin is determined to be dry, the SeneDerm formulation for Normal-To-
Dry would be used. The advanced vitamin and botanical formula promotes hydration and
moisture retention. A good rule of thumb is, unless skin is very oily, use this formula after age
30, as our skin becomes drier with age.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 25


Dry Skin
Ordinarily, dry skin isn’t serious, but it can be uncomfortable and unsightly, turning plump
cells into shriveled ones and creating wrinkles.

One is served well when one learns to ‘listen to your skin’ because fortunately, most dry skin
results from environmental factors that can be wholly or partially controlled. These include
exposure to hot or cold weather with low humidity levels and excessive bathing. Thankfully
you can take steps to improve your skin, including using good moisturizers, bathing less
and avoiding harsh, drying soaps.

If you have dry skin, you’re likely to experience one or more of the following:
• A feeling of skin tightness, especially after showering, bathing or swimming
• Skin that appears shrunken or dehydrated
• Skin that feels and looks rough rather than smooth
• Occasional to frequent itching
• Slight to severe flaking, scaling or peeling
• Fine lines or cracks
• Redness

Potential causes of dry skin include:


• Weather. In general, your skin is driest in winter, when temperatures and humidity
levels plummet. Winter conditions also tend to make many existing skin conditions
worse. But the reverse may be true if you live in desert regions, where temperatures
can soar but humidity levels remain low.
• Central heating and air conditioning. Central air and heating, wood-burning stoves,
space heaters and fireplaces all reduce humidity and dry your skin.
• Hot baths and showers. Frequent showering or bathing, especially if you like the
water hot and your baths long, breaks down the lipid barriers in your skin. So does
frequent swimming, particularly in heavily chlorinated pools.
• Harsh soaps and detergents. Many popular soaps and detergents strip lipids and
water (moisture) from your skin. Deodorant and antibacterial soaps are usually the
most damaging, as are many shampoos, which dry out your scalp.
• Sun exposure. Like all types of heat, the sun dries your skin. Yet damage from
ultraviolet (UV) radiation penetrates far beyond the top layer of skin (epidermis).
The most significant damage occurs deep in the dermis, where collagen and elastin
fibers break down much more quickly than they should, leading to deep wrinkles and
loose, sagging skin (solar elastosis). Sun-damaged skin may have the appearance
of dry skin.

Dry skin requires products that deliver extra doses of moisture, essential oils and nutrients,
and protection from the environmental hazards. SeneDerm Dry should be the product line
of choice for this skin type.

26 Section II: About Your Skin


Caring For Your Skin
STEP 1: Cleansing
Keeping your skin clean, healthy, and beautiful is an important part of your daily routine.
Proper care is simple to define, easy and quick to use and the same for both men and
women. Skin care includes cleanliness but goes beyond it, including the prevention of skin
problems and deterioration. Men and women alike should cleanse at least twice a day.
Once each morning to remove the bacteria from the atmosphere that was collected on the
surface of the skin during the night, and cleanse once each evening to remove bacteria’s and
pollutants from dirt and toxins accumulated on the skin during the course of the day. Soaps
containing detergents will not remove modern eye makeup around the eyes, and will cause
stretching of the skin in this area, which will encourage development of lines and wrinkles.

Exfoliants or refiners are meant to be used after surface grime and makeup has been removed
from the skin, and their function is to remove the most superficial layers of the epidermis
from the skin, leaving a smoother, fresher surface underneath while preparing the skin to
receive the next step. The purpose of a toner is to remove the last traces of a cleanser,
natural oils, and grease from sebaceous and hair follicle pores. Quality toners will restore the
skin’s natural pH balance, enabling the skin’s natural defense system to help protect it from
environmental toxins and bacteria.

STEP 2: Moisturizing
All skin needs to be moisturized. It is essential in maintaining youthful and healthy skin. The
natural oils in your skin stop dehydration, but if there is too little oil the skin becomes dry and
flaky. Moisturizers correct this imbalance. They attract and deflect moisture and also act as
a barrier against outside elements. The advanced hydrating and moisture retention process
of SeneDerm with SenePlex Complex skin care system provides environmental protection
while nourishing the skin.

High-grade moisturizers are a delivery system that deliver ingredients to the skin that help
maintain the moisture on the skin and in the pores using humectants that binds to the skin.
Moisturizers may be formulated with cosmetic grade waters and other beneficial ingredients
and are only beneficial if the delivery system within the cream or lotion is effectively and
properly formulated, based upon molecular weights of the ingredients. The molecular
weights of ingredients determine the size of any particular ingredient. Most ingredients listed
in many personal care marketing campaigns as being beneficial to skin may, in fact, not
be beneficial. What the user of such concoctions does not know is that molecular weights
of such ingredients make it impossible to be absorbed into the skin and therefore may be
completely ineffective.

The truth is that a new, healthy cell has within and amongst its cell properties all that the
skin requires to be healthy…from the bottom up. The real key to beautiful skin is simply
producing more healthy cells to replace existing healthy cells.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 27


Step 3: Protecting
Men and women need to protect their skin from daily environmental hazards as previously
mentioned. Additionally, your skin must be protected from the harmful rays of the sun.
SeneDerm with SenePlex Complex DayTime Moisturizers protect skin from the sun with a
mechinal shield equivalency of SPF 30 when layered with MakeSense Foundation. However,
the women who use the SeneGence Anti-Aging System receive additional sun protection
and skin care benefits from the third step, our MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation
with SeneShield and SenePlex Complex+.

SeneGence SeneCeuticals – SeneDerm


Blended with Cosmetics
SeneCeutical is the name that describes a new way to
care for your skin through the use of highly advanced
anti-aging skin care and anti-aging color cosmetics.
Within the cosmetics and personal care industries, the
use of the term “cosmeceutical” describes creams and
lotions from which the skin may derive benefits such as
nutrients and vitamins, etc. SeneDerm with SenePlex
Complex and the long-lasting color technology of
SenseCosmetics with SenePlex Complex have bridged
the gap between anti-aging skin care and the use
of color cosmetics in a way that when used together,
deliver continuous 24-hour anti-aging properties – while
looking beautiful. SeneGence has created yet another benchmark for the cosmetics and
personal care industry with:

SeneCeuticals Anti-Aging System


Anti-Aging SkinCare and Anti-Aging Long-Lasting Color Cosmetics that make “Looking
Beautiful and Staying Beautiful” possible …

SeneDerm with SenePlex and the Science


The SeneDerm Cellular Renewal with SenePlex Complex provides a healthy, safe, and
effective approach to restoring the youthful appearance of the skin while encouraging
new cellular growth. This system is designed to work synergistically, thereby maximizing
the benefits of each ingredient and encouraging this cellular growth. The result: youthful,
vital skin.

Why? Because this advanced complex of algae, plankton, seaweed, and minerals replenishes
and accelerates cell production without irritation. Additionally, orchid and botanical extracts
protect the skin from environmental damage while the powerful combinations of Vitamin A
and Vitamin E protect the skin from cell-destroying free radicals.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 29


Vitamins
The topical value of vitamins has only recently been discovered and heralded as highly
beneficial when added to skin care formulations. Science is continually discovering and
recognizing the true benefits of certain vitamins when directly applied to the skin. Sometimes
these vitamins stand alone in a preparation: often they are combined with other vitamins for
their symbiotic effects. The SeneDerm formulation is a blend of vitamins most beneficial in
the overall health and appearance of skin.

Essential Oils
The powers of healing found in the oils of certain leaves, flowers, roots, and herbs have been
known for centuries. Chamomile oil, for example, is antiseptic and soothing. Lavender oil
works as a stimulant and a toner, and is especially good for oily skin. The list is long, and all
the oils contained in the SeneDerm skin care system are specifically selected for their own
benefits and well-defined healing qualities, thus providing the optimum in the promotion
of healthy skin. Combined with the latest scientific research and technological advances,
SenePlex creates an unparalleled cellular renewal system for the skin. Studies show that
on the average, skin that is 40 years and older takes 20 plus days to recycle and produce
new cells while younger skin recycles in 16-18 days. To even come close to this younger,
healthy skin, a skin care product must offer moisture, lubrication and aid in the production
of new cells.

SeneDerm does just that. Independent Laboratory tests have shown that after using the
SeneDerm SkinCare products for as little 2 weeks, positive results can actually be seen!!

So now the question comes: “Just what is it about SeneDerm that stimulates such
incredible results?”

Botanical Extracts and Minerals


Botanicals are powerful plant extracts and oils derived from flowers, herbs, nuts, seeds,
roots and berries. And when harnessed in the right way, they can do wonders for our skin.
Whether we want to address concerns like pigmentation changes, redness or first signs of
aging, botanical-powered skincare products can help us keep our complexion looking its
best. The botanical extracts included in SeneGence formulations are derived from naturally
reoccurring resources, and are among the highest quality available. Sourced from plants
around the world, our extracts are part of what makes our products so effective. Some of
our key botanical extracts include Orchid extract, Algae extract, Almond Oil, Ginger Root,
Aloe, Avocado oil, Jojoba, Shea, and the list goes on.

Minerals are naturally occurring chemical compounds. The skin needs certain minerals for
optimal function. Just some of the minerals included in SeneGence formulations to help
your skin be at its healthiest include Copper PCA for skin conditioning, Magnesium PCA for
moisturization, and Zinc PCA for antioxidant protection.

30 Section III: The Science & Nature of SeneGence Products


The Sea Holds Some Answers
Several answers were found on the exotic island of Vanuatu, one of a string of islands
located in the South Pacific. On this island exists a live, active volcano that spews lava,
acids, and poisonous gases intermittently. What makes this active volcano unusual is the
lush flora and fauna that thrive at the base of it.

Normally, vegetation cannot live in such a poisonous environment. If these plants could thrive
so vitally amidst volcanic ash, what could their secret do for human skin? This question
inspired two expeditions to this tiny, remote island and years of constant investigation and
research by the SeneGence team of chemists and Joni Rogers-Kante, Founder of SeneGence.
They studied the mysteries of these plants and the volcanic ash that in nature surrounded
them and discovered that the plant life of that area had developed unique characteristics
which helped them flourish in their poisonous atmosphere; this atmosphere could be likened
to the heavy pollution of smog filled metropolitan cities around the world. The goal was to
duplicate the process found within this plant life by blending characteristics of this naturally
occurring resource with ingredients found to be beneficial to the skin, thus creating a simple
but effective skin care system and cosmetic product. This was accomplished! The raw
natural materials were gathered from Vanuatu, transported to the United States, and then
used to introduce and create SenePlex Complex, our astounding technology, designed to
make skin more beautiful from head to toe.

Acid-Free Technology: A Step Forward


SenePlex Complex incorporates an acid-free technology, UGL COMPLEX, a huge step
forward for skin care. UGL COMPLEX is a proprietary extract from these marine sources
rich in low molecular weight polysaccharides (organic compounds consisting of carbon,
hydrogen, and oxygen) and glycosamino (a complex of proteins) glycan. It is a natural
exfoliating complex, which with other natural components, can activate both epidermal and
dermal cells resulting in improved cell renewal. Additionally, UGL COMPLEX stimulates an
increased production of hyaluronic acid (important to tissue hydration and cell function) and
collagen, which helps bring moisture to dehydrated or aging skin. UGL Complex is also
found in the dermis, unlike alpha hydroxy acid (AHA’s) and retinol.

Simply put, UGL Complex is:


• Calming
• Clarifying
• Wrinkle reducing
• Moisturizing
• Collagen increasing

In short, with prolonged use, it is possible that UGL Complex will result in significant anti-
aging benefits easily visible to the user.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 31


Molecular Size or Molecular Weight
The size of each of the ingredient’s molecules within a product greatly determines the
effectiveness of the ingredients and the product.
• Products made of ingredients with very large molecules spread from one side of the
pore opening to the other, covering or “clogging” the pore, so the product cannot
penetrate through the surface of the skin.
• Ingredients made with smaller molecules may penetrate through the surface of
the skin.
• If products claim to contain ingredients that are beneficial and affect various layers
of your skin, then those ingredients must be made of molecules that are small
enough to penetrate through the surface of the skin.

SeneDerm Anti- Aging SkinCare System and creamy SenseCosmetics are made with a
variety of Molecular Weights (sizes) so that specific ingredients are able to deliver the
active ingredients of SenePlex Complex into the skin, to the precise levels where the
ingredients are needed to be of benefit to the skin.

Molecular Weights and Protecting the Skin


The molecular weight of the ingredients of a product that remain on the surface of the skin
is vital because they can act as an important barrier to protect your skin from free radicals
in the atmosphere. Free radicals (different types of atmospheric bacteria) can eat away at
the molecules that protect the skin. If free radicals are successful in breaking down the
protective layer on the surface of the skin, the moisture below the skin’s surface can ‘be lost’
into the atmosphere.

It is important to balance the size of the molecular weight of ingredients needed for protection
of the skin with the purpose of the product. At the same time, avoid molecular weights that
are comedogenic (clog pores) in nature.

One of the goals of our products is to help balance and maintain moisture content of the
skin. Based upon a variety of molecular weights in each of the products, the size of the
molecules determines the hours of protection.

The estimated period of protection from free radicals provided by the products is:
• Daytime Moisturizer estimated average of 8-10 hrs
• Evening Moisturizer estimated average of 12-14 hrs
• Shea Butter Body Cream estimated average of 14-18 hrs
• EyeCreme is the thickest & lasts the longest!

32 Section III: The Science & Nature of SeneGence Products


The Truth about Actives
An “active” ingredient (example: Vitamins A, B, D, and E, etc) is an ingredient, or combination
of ingredients, that impact the way in which a process happens. Active enzymes have energy.
Energy moves and will eventually (or quickly) runs out.
• If active ingredients are mixed (diluted) within a liquid solution, they may easily
move about as the solution is not very dense, so the active ingredients quickly run
out of energy.
• When active ingredients are in a more solid solution or mixture, the density will
prevent them from running out of energy as quickly as those in a liquid solution.

SeneDerm Anti-Aging SkinCare Systems and creamy SenseCosmetics are manufactured


based upon a “Just in Time” inventory system to help ensure that fresh products with active
ingredients are passed on to our SeneGence Distributors, who then deliver them into the
hands of our consumers.

Reproduction of Skin Cells


Let’s take a look at skin. The skin is the body’s largest organ and is up to 15% of the body’s
total weight. It is our interface (connection) with the outside world. It is present on the body
to prevent our tissue fluids and blood from evaporating and maintains a frame in which our
body organs are housed. Think of the way skin renews itself. It is a perfect suit that covers
the body, fitting every crevice. As it ages, it sags – but never truly wears out like other organs
within the body.

Skin diseases and the physical texture and appearance of the skin are most directly related
to the way in which we care for it. Depending upon age, every 28 days we get an entirely
new epidermis, from top to bottom. A pool of non-dividing cells is always at rest in the
bottom layers of the epidermis ready to take over the function of covering the body. Even
in old age (and this may be one of the keys to staying younger) there are resting young cells
waiting to be released into the growth and proliferation phase.

What if we could speed the production of these healthy cells? How could the growth of
increased fresh, healthy, moist, glowing skin be maintained? And likewise, how could
the protection of that healthy skin be beneficial even in today’s harsh environments
with the added necessity of appropriate color cosmetic usage?

We must then deal with the care and protection of our skin. You will determine that to
protect your skin and to create healthy new cells requires care from both inside and out.
Our eccrine, watery sweat glands, secrete several liters of liquid that evaporates insensibly
from our skins, taking the caloric heat of food and muscle metabolism with it into the air
surrounding us.

As a metabolic center, the skin actively participates in the synthesis of many of the body’s
basic constituents. Carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and amino acids are all manufactured
to some degree in the skin. Also, vitamin D3, an essential ingredient in bone formation, is
metabolized in the skin. Blood vessels running into the skin carry these nutrients in and out

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 33


of the skin to the rest of the body. The skin also moves materials from the outside of the
body to the inside. It has the ability to absorb a percentage of what is applied to it.

Kinetic Enzyme SenePlex Complex


The SeneDerm SkinCare System formulas and creamy SenseCosmetics contain a
proprietary skin care ingredient called SenePlex Complex. The SenePlex Complex is a unique
combination of ingredients, which when used properly, accelerates cellular renewal growth.

The SenePlex Complex has been discovered to be what is called a “Kinetic Enzyme.” This
means that SenePlex Complex speeds up the natural process of reproducing cells without
changing the process itself. Simply stated, SenePlex Complex impacts the growth of living
cells and increases the cellular renewal process at a rate never before seen in the cosmetics
and skin care industry.

SeneGence SeneDerm Anti-Aging Systems work by affording the user the greatest benefits
resulting from the most effective anti-aging skin care system known today, combined with
patented long-lasting color technology of SenseCosmetics. The SenseCosmetics line of
creamy color cosmetics delivers the same continuous benefits of the anti-aging skin care
systems. Layering the anti aging-properties onto our skin for 24 hours daily by combining
the two technologies (anti-aging and long lasting color) compounds the benefits for a
more beautiful complexion through the use of a simple three-step skin care process and
application of amazing, versatile anti-aging color cosmetics. The SeneDerm Anti-Aging
products, combined with our SenseCosmetics creamy color cosmetics, provide both day
and night benefits for our skin.

Independent Clinical Laboratory Results


Independent clinical laboratory results on SenePlex Complex when the system of products
was originally formulated were amazing. The initial feedback from these women was that
they were experiencing visible results to their skin in as little as two weeks! But before making
any product claims, the SenePlex formulation was put through an independent eight-week
laboratory study on female subjects ranging from 18 to 55 years of age with both normal to
dry and oily skin types.

The following results are not only astounding but they are documented. SeneDerm
with SenePlex Complex was concluded to improve skin on 100% of those women who
took part in the clinical tests, regardless of skin type. The Independent Laboratory test
results concluded that SeneDerm:
• Increased cellular renewal rate of the skin an average of 23.3%
• Increased skin moisturization and hydration, an average of 54.2%
• Increased skin firmness and elasticity, an average of 51.9%
• Decreased skin sagging by an average of 25%

34 Section III: The Science & Nature of SeneGence Products


• Increased skin luminosity an average, of 48.7%
• Reduced fine lines and wrinkles by an average 55.7%
• Increased skin softness by an average of 45%

It is rather remarkable that EVERY tested woman studied by the Independent Laboratory,
experienced measurable benefits to her facial skin that was the subject of the study. To
have achieved an overall 55.7 % DECREASE IN FINE LINES AND WRINKLES IS ALSO AN
EXCEPTIONAL RESULT.

So you can actually see that when the SenePlex Complex formulation is synergistically
blended with nature’s botanical extracts, marine algae, vitamins, and essential oils (ingredients
specifically selected for their beneficial properties as well as total affinity and compatibility
with the skin), the result is a product that just may give you that skin you wish for. And, as the
product line has evolved, we have also begun to enhance the effects of SenePlex Complex
within the formulas with the addition of nanosomes, peptides and time-released ingredients
that last all day.

SenePlex Complex’s Direct Effects Upon the


Skin
SenePlex Complex is a mixture of unique ingredients and raw materials contained within a
delivery system that allows for penetration and delivery of the SenePlex Complex actives
into the second layer of the skin, the dermis. At the very base of this layer, the actives create
a kinetic enzyme reaction and increase the cellular growth production. Increasing cellular
growth has a substantial impact upon the health and conditions of the skin. In the normal
course of cellular production, cells are generally dehydrated and hardened by the time they

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 35


reach the outer layer of the epidermis. As cellular production increases, cells on the way to
the surface of the epidermis are replaced with newer cells faster.

The dehydration process of these newer cells has not been completed even as they are
replaced with the cells rising to the top from underneath. Moisture content is improved
through increased cellular production. Cells maintain a greater amount of moisture making
them more plump and supple. Replacing older, dead cells with cells that maintain greater
moisture content makes skin more luminous. Increased cellular growth also means less time
for cells to naturally lose collagen content and break down elastin fibers that make the skin
sag. Increased cellular production helps to increase firmness and elasticity of the skin. Fine
lines and wrinkles are often attributed to the build up of dehydrated, dead skin that has been
compacted into certain areas of the skin surface.

With healthy, moist, luminous cells produced at a constant increased rate, fine lines and
wrinkles are sure to diminish. With increased cellular growth, it is conceivable to imagine
that non-genetic color spots created by unhealthy skin could be replaced by healthier, more
beautiful skin. This could result in a more evenly colored skin surface, making your complexion
appear smoother. Conceivably, one could suppose that if cells are being produced at an
increased speed, small lesions created by blemishes could possibly heal faster.

SenePlex Complex and Balancing Moisture


There are three ways to moisturize your skin: One is to replace water by eating and drinking;
the other one is to attract moisture from the air. There is water all around us–we just don’t
see it. It’s called water vapor. Think about it: When the relative humidity is 95%, you know
it’s very moist in the air.

Different parts of your body have varying moisture contents. When SenePlex penetrates the
skin, it normalizes the moisture content for the part of the body it is applied. It won’t alter
the moisture content of your skin or provide additional moisture to any unneeded areas of
the skin. The complex helps to balance and restore moisture content within areas of the skin
where levels need to be increased. It’s the skin and SenePlex together that actually create a

36 Section III: The Science & Nature of SeneGence Products


restoration process. SenePlex creates the mechanism for the cells and the body to balance
the moisture content of the skin.

Protection and Mechanical Shield


What is the ultra-violet protection of the product, meaning moisturizer plus foundation, and
what does SPF mean? The person who uses an SPF 10 can stay in the sun 10 times longer
(than without SPF) before they burn. The number is relative to the individual. So, if it takes a
person 10 minutes to burn, and they use an SPF of 10, they have 100 minutes before they
burn. The fact is, sun reacts with sunlight itself and uses up the SPF applied to skin reducing
its effectiveness over time, meaning you need to screen the sun from the chemicals of the
SPF product on skin because the rays of the sun use up the SPF product itself. People also
seem to be pretty sensitive to chemical sunscreens. The algae in SenePlex provides a natural
sun protection factor capable of boosting the physical, chemical sunscreen. We usually use
titanium dioxide at a level of about 2. Now, we only have to use a small percentage of a
chemical and combine it with algae extract to achieve a full-strength mechanical shield that
delivers the same result as a high-numbered chemical SPF. Our natural formula using algae
does not get used up while the product is on the surface of the skin and as well, people do
not seem to be sensitive to it. By combining Daytime Moisturizer with MakeSense Original
Foundation, we deliver to skin a mechanical shield equivalent to an SPF 30 to protect skin
from harmful rays of the sun.

SeneShield™
Pollution, an increasing environmental issue, can have dramatic impacts on the skin. It
can alter the skin’s moisture-regulating ability due to free radicals generated by pollutants,
thus causing skin to lose its radiance and take on a muddy complexion. SeneShield is an
exclusive blend of ingredients that protects skin from harmful air pollutants, UV rays, and
free radicals. SeneShield includes a natural plant sorbitol and yeast extract, creating a non-
clogging, transparent shield to protect skin and help to reduce signs of aging.

SeneShield fights the effects of urbanization exposure, helping to reverse the signs of aging.

Shield your skin with SeneGence products containing SeneShield: SeneSerum-C and
MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation.

Today’s advanced ingredient technologies allow for more effective physical benefits to
skin. S.M.A.R.T. Ingredients actually help fight the aging process of cells by Soothing,
Moisturizing, supporting Anti-aging, Restructuring, & enhancing the Touch of skin. That
means ingredients of today can actually help to repair the damage of cells caused by toxins
and reverse the damage, helping to correct damage caused by urbanization. Some of the

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 37


S.M.A.R.T. ingredients included are: Biosaccharide Gum-1, a moisturizing and skin soothing
ingredient produced by the fermenting plants: maize sorbitol and soya peptone. It delivers
amazing effects such as:

• Soothing and reducing skin sensitivity

• Moisturizing from the 1st hour post-application and lasting for up to 8 hours

• Anti-aging support from stimulation of epidermal sirtuin-1 molecules

• Restructuring through stimulation of epidermal differentiation

• Touch – makes skin as soft as silk to the touch.

S.M.A.R.T. ingredients can be found in SeneSerum-C, please see that product section for
more information.

SenePeptides™
SenePeptides are a series of isolated active peptides with anti-aging hair growth properties
that stimulate gene expression causing increased keratin production, which makes hair
follicles grow faster, thicker, and longer. In our LashExtend formula, they are combined into
a formulation base of glycerin and water, and work to grow lashes at an unprecedented rate.

DualSense™ Delivery
The highly advanced anti-aging moisturizing formulation of Climate Control is designed with
a remarkable dual delivery system technology, DualSense. This revolutionary technology
keeps two different but essential delivery systems separated until you are ready to begin
using the product, and, therefore, preserving the highest levels of product effectiveness.

The two different delivery systems of Climate Control consist of the clear liquid top layer,
SenePlex and a gelatinous blue matrix containing our SelPlex Complex combined with a
high dosage of Sodium Hyaluronate (additional humectants) as the bottom layer. The delivery
system of the bottom layer SelPlex, in which lies a mixture of unique ingredients and raw
materials, allows for penetration of the SenePlex actives when combined, delivering to the
skin much needed essential fatty acids that are crucial in healthy cellular development and
cannot be synthesized by the human body. The delivery system of SenePlex, the top layer, is
a liquid solution which delivers all the beneficial ingredients to the cells when applied to the
skin. The actives impact the growth of living cells and increase the cellular renewal process.

When ready to use, vigorously shaking the bottle mixes the two delivery systems together
by activating the active ingredients of SenePlex. Thus, two become one – the DualSense
Delivery System provides a mechanism and a vehicle for the fresh actives of SenePlex

38 Section III: The Science & Nature of SeneGence Products


delivery system to be available for penetration into the deepest layers of the skin, as well as
providing the skin particular essential acids it cannot synthesize itself.

Why does DualSense Delivery System Technology Work? It is well known throughout the
cosmetic and skin care industries that when contained within a mixture of other ingredients,
the effectiveness of “actives” diminishes with time. It is also known throughout the scientific
communities of the cosmetic industries that the emulsifiers in the suspension fluids are
supposed to deliver the actives into the skin. Emulsifiers are ingredients that help assist
in the production of an emulsion, or the “blend” of ingredients that are seemingly unable
to be mixed together. Emulsifiers are made of molecules, the size of which is measured in
molecular weights. Molecular weights of the majority of emulsifiers are much too large to
penetrate the skin, therefore unable to deliver actives and other beneficial ingredients into
the layers of the skin. The actives in SenePlex Complex are not activated until vigorously
shaken and evenly distributed throughout the SelPlex suspension delivery system. SelPlex
“self” suspension delivery system is formulated using herbal oil extracts mixed with vitamins
and tocopherols. Both SenePlex and SelPlex delivery systems are beneficial to the skin and
can stand alone as delivery systems in separate products. However, by combining these
two delivery systems together into one, the combined affects of this unique DualSense
Delivery System, is remarkable.

The DualSense Delivery System Technology aids in providing more moisture and other
beneficial ingredients contained in the ‘self’ suspension fluid by penetrating into the deepest
layers of your skin as it distributes the fresh and newly activated ‘actives’ of the SenePlex
Complex. This process alone increases the effectiveness of the SeneDerm with SenePlex
Anti-Aging SkinCare System.

SeneDerm with SenePlex 3-in-1 Cleanser


The cleansing ritual is an essential key for any skin type. Twice a day you need to cleanse,
moisturize, and protect. In the morning, it is necessary to activate the skin and eliminate the
night’s residue including oil build up, night crème film, and dead skin cells. In the evening,
it is essential to remove make-up and daily grime before going to sleep so your pores don’t
get clogged. And as well, exfoliation is a must and all four 3-in-1 Cleansers exfoliate.

Here is why exfoliation is so important:

The average human generates a new layer of skin every two to four weeks (cellular cycle).
At the end of the cycle, the old, dead cells on the surface are shed. In the event the cells are
not shed, a build-up of cells results. The skin will start to appear dull, the texture becomes
rough and the skin’s capacity to absorb moisturizing products is reduced. Stress, pollution
and UV rays also tend to slow down epidermal turnover time. If the old, dead skin cells
are not removed, bacteria builds and together the bacteria, oil, and dead skin can clog the
sebaceous pores leading to superficial spots or blackheads. If you do not exfoliate on a
regular basis your skin will become clogged with toxins and will not be able ‘to breathe’.
This will result in dull, oily looking skin and may cause skin conditions such as acne. It also
means that blood cannot circulate adequately, and toxins will continue to build up.

Impurities, dirt and bacteria from the atmosphere, are oil based. Water and oil do not mix.
Because oil-based impurities do not dissolve in water, a cleanser without the use of harsh
detergents and strippers is a must to makes impurities soluble (mobile) enough to be washed
away. SeneGence 3-in-1 Cleansers (and SeneDerm Body Wash) contain a molecule that
has, on one end, an oil molecule to attract and bind to the oil base impurities. The other
end of the same molecule has a liquid molecule to mix and bind to water. Once applied, the
molecule binds to impurities with one end and water lifts (water attracts water) and washes
away the entire cleansing molecule removing the oil-based impurities that attached to the
one end of the molecule.

Our four smooth luxurious unique formulations contain the finest ingredients nature and
technology have to offer for dry, normal to dry, and normal to oily skin types. Enriched with
plant extracts and vitamins, our 3-in-1 suds-free cleansers are designed and formulated to
clean, tone, and exfoliate in one easy step! Blended without the use of harsh detergents,

42 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


but containing the necessary mixtures, exfoliants, and toners, the SeneDerm 3-in-1
cleanser formulations effectively remove oil where needed without discoloring the skin.
The SeneDerm cleanser formulations add moisture to dry skin or maintain the moisture
content as appropriate, restores the skin’s proper pH balance, and exfoliates dead skin
while preparing the skin for the next step.

3-in-1 Cleanser Oily to Acne (US Only)


While helping to clarify oily skin, blemishes and acne, gentle foaming 3-in-1
Cleanser Oily to Acne restores moisture and skin health and assists in wound
healing. It also works to reduce fine line and wrinkles and is unique in the market
place, as it does not contain harsh neutralizers.

The Science Behind the Product


Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 1%. Topical salicylic acid is used to help
clear and prevent pimples and skin blemishes in people who have acne. Topical
salicylic acid is also used to treat skin conditions that involve scaling or overgrowth of skin
cells such as psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the
body), ichthyoses (inborn conditions that cause skin dryness and scaling), dandruff, corns,
calluses, and warts on the hands or feet.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


SenePlex Complex: Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Decyl Glucoside: mild non-ionic surfactant used in cosmetic formulations, including


baby Shampoo, and in products for individuals with sensitive skin. Many natural
personal care companies use this cleanser because it is plant-derived, biodegradable,
and gentle.

L-Argenin: an Amino acid that has antioxidant properties and can be helpful for
wound healing.

Directions for Use


Use to cleanse skin morning and evening, after removing cosmetics. Rinse well. Follow
with SeneDerm DayTime or Evening Moisturizer. If excessive drying or peeling occurs, start
with one application daily, gradually increase to twice daily, or as directed by a doctor. For

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 43


external use only. Do not use in combination with additional topical acne medications, other
than the SeneDerm Oily to Acne system.

3-in-1 Cleanser Normal to Oily


Normal to Oily Cleanser is formulated for those who experience oily skin
throughout the day over the entire face area or ‘T’ zone. Generally this skin type
tends to have larger pores around the nose and cheek areas. It is interesting
to note that even those with Normal to Dry skin can from time-to-time feel skin
‘oilier’ on one day and dry the next. This is due to many varied and combined
circumstances and reactions such as constantly changing chemical, mental,
and physical changes within the body. ‘Listen to your skin’ and use this formula
on the ‘oily’ days.

The Science Behind the Product


This cleanser contains volcanic ash that works to gently exfoliate and polish the skin while
stimulating cellular production. It also helps kill surface bacteria while controlling sebum
production by reducing the need of the skin to produce oil as the skin detects the presence
of relaxing and light precious oil.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


3-in-1 Cleanser Normal to Oily is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few
key components:

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic Enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Volcanic Ash–nature’s natural exfoliate. Gently exfoliates and polishes the skin while
stimulating circulation to produce a healthy glow to the skin.

Echinacea Angustifolia (Cone Flower) Extract: a microbial herb Native Americans


used for more than 400 years to treat infections and wounds and as a general “cure-
all”; promotes connective tissue vascularization and increases collagen synthesis
and viscosity.

Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract: a herb that has been shown to have anti-
irritant, soothing, and antioxidant properties.

Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil: a natural herb found to be relaxing and it


has been reported to have anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects. It is used in cosmetic
preparations for its significant medicinal value. Its anti-bacterial, antiseptic, and anti-
fungal benefits soothe inflamed skin and foster regeneration of skin cells. Because it
regulates sebum production, it is useful for all skin types.

Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract: a plant native to the South


Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient

44 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum
moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the
skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the


activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin
ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating
wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage
and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the
sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Retinyl Palmitate: It is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of


the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis,
known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger,
plumper skin cells. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Yeast Extract: a dietary source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex)
aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the


extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant
than Glycerin.

Triethanolamine: a Surfactant. A Surfactant is a wetting ingredient that lowers


water’s surface tension allowing the product to spread more easily over the skin and
is used when a mild product is required for the skin.

Directions for Use


Morning and evening, massage 3-in-1 Cleanser onto a moist face, throat, and upper chest
area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 45


3-in-1 Cleanser Normal To Dry
Normal to Dry Cleanser is formulated for those who experience very little to
no oiliness throughout the day over the entire face area or ‘T’ zone. Generally
this skin type tends to have medium to small size pores (due to lack of oil
production) around the nose and cheek areas. As we age skin becomes drier.
A good rule of thumb is, unless skin is very oily; use this formula after age 30.

The Science Behind the Product


This cleanser produces a foaming emulsion that gently exfoliates and
rejuvenates the skin without altering its pH balance. Made with SenePlex, this cleanser is
packed with natural oils dry skin so desperately needs. It contains lots of moisture and is
enriched with many vitamins to hydrate and nourish the skin.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


3-in-1 Cleanser Normal to Dry is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few
key components:

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic Enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Seed) Oil: a moisturizer and emollient agent to


improve the skin elasticity and suppleness, containing natural Tocopherol to minimize
oxidation and lipid pre oxidation.

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil: non-greasy oil easily absorbed, and
helps to leave the skin soft and satiny smooth.

Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil: a plant derived emollient that mimics
the lipid content of the skin. It helps stabilize and maintain the structure of the
skin’s complex inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage and
promoting the skin’s soft, smooth, healthy appearance.

Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil: a very rich, moisturizing treatment for skin, with
natural sunscreen properties. It is a very stable oil that contains lecithin and more than
20 percent essential unsaturated fatty acids. The age of skin is partly determined by
its content of soluble collagen. A recent study found that ‘avocado oil’ significantly
increases the water-soluble collagen content in the dermis while offering protection
from ultraviolet rays.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera): most known for moisturizing, soothing,
and healing. Recent studies indicate that Aloe Vera gel has the ability to enhance
and accelerate cellular growth.

Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract: a herb that has been shown to have anti-
irritant, soothing, and antioxidant properties.

that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Cholecalciferol: Vitamin D Bioactive vitamin D or calcitriol is a steroid hormone that


has long been known for its important role in regulating body levels of calcium and
phosphorus, and in mineralization of bone. More recently, it has become clear that
receptors for vitamin D are present in a wide variety of cells, and that this hormone
has biologic effects which extend far beyond control of mineral metabolism.

Yeast Extract: a dietary source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex)
aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

Magnesium Aluminum Silicate: a mineral beneficial to skin.

extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant
than Glycerin.

Titanium Dioxide: an inert earth mineral used as a thickening ingredient and sunscreen
in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have
no risk of skin irritation.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Glycerin: a solvent, an emollient, and humectant that helps keep moisture in the
cream and helps the product to spread better across a surface – reducing drag and
pull. – Non-toxic, non-irritating and non-allergenic to the skin.

Decyl Glucoside: a mild non-ionic surfactant used in cosmetic formularies including


baby shampoo and in products for individuals with sensitive skin. Many natural
personal care companies use this cleanser because it is plant-derived, biodegradable,
and gentle.

Cocamidopropyl Betaine: a surfactant, cleansing ingredient and foam booster.

Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate: derived from milk and coconut oil. It is a mild secondary
surfactant and provides an elegant, soothing feel.

Directions for Use


Morning and evening, massage 3-in-1 Cleanser onto a moist face, throat, and upper chest
area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

3-in-1 Cleanser Dry


SeneDerm Dry Cleanser is formulated especially for those with dry skin.
Generally, this skin type can be identified by no oiliness seen on the surface
of skin, feelings of tightness or itching and may show signs of flaking, fine
lines or roughness. Generally speaking, this skin type tends to have very
small pores. Although with age, skin becomes drier, and all skin types may
eventually become dry with time. Dry skin needs special moisturizing and
cleansing to improve its condition. SeneDerm Dry Cleanser boasts soft
‘pillow-like’ sponges to gently exfoliate and an invigorating fragrance to
awaken the senses and leave the face feeling fresh all day and night long.

Directions for Use
Morning and evening, massage 3-in-1 Cleanser onto a moist face, throat, and upper chest
area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Experience a clean and moist, fresh feeling without the
drying or tightening sensation commonly found in suds-based cleansers.

SeneDerm 3-in-1 Cleanser Dry is to be used in conjunction with SeneDerm Daytime


Moisturizer Dry and SeneDerm Evening Moisturizer Dry … maximizing moisturizing and
layering SenePlex Complex into the skin all day and all night.

SeneDerm with SenePlex Moisturizers


SeneDerm with SenePlex Complex DayTime Moisturizer supplies atmospheric moisture to
the skin, maintains moisture content within the skin and provides a sun protection factor.

SeneDerm with SenePlex Complex is formulated with a delivery system that enables the
SenePlex Complex to penetrate the skin, therefore, making possible the amazingly proven
results seen by this unique anti-aging system. SeneDerm with SenePlex Complex Evening
Moisturizers is a richer, more concentrated formulation of the daytime moisturizers without
sun protection.

Your skin is capable of absorbing more benefits of products on the skin’s surface as you sleep.
The evening moisturizers are more concentrated to deliver higher percentage of SenePlex
Complex to your skin as you rest. Additionally, a richer, thicker formulation prevents the
atmosphere from dehydrating your skin while you sleep.

Advanced Anti-Aging Moisturizers, such as Climate Control and SeneSerum-C, add more
intense moisture to dry skin with additional beneficial ingredients.

Climate Control with SenePlex

An anti-aging moisturizer for sensitive and dry skin types, Climate Control
is a proprietary formulation of two separate and extremely effective
delivery systems, combined into one advanced technology, “DualSense”.
It enhances the anti-aging effects of SeneDerm SkinCare Systems and can
provide extra moisture for those times when your skin needs it most.

The Science Behind the Product


Climate Control synergistically combines our amazing anti-aging SenePlex Complex
with another remarkable complex, SelPlex. SenePlex is the amazing anti-aging complex
contained in the SeneDerm SkinCare Systems. SelPlex is an additional, incredible complex
formulated specifically as a soothing and highly moisturizing fluid, that when combined,
delivers SenePlex Complex deeper into the layers of the skin.

50 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


What is SelPlex?

SelPlex is a “self” suspension fluid, which is the Matrix (physical structure) that holds the
ingredients needed to complete the product formulation. This highly advanced suspension
fluid is formulated in SeneGence fashion to be highly effective and is a mixture of both
nature and science. SelPlex contains the very best scientific ingredients and humectants
that help make your skin moister in a blend of specifically selected herbal oil extracts, which
are mixed with vitamins and tocopherols that soothe the skin. SelPlex does not contain
emulsifiers so that the penetrating qualities of these essential oils help to evenly disperse
SenePlex Complex into the deepest layers of the skin when combined.

What is the DualSense Delivery System Technology?

Climate Control starts working only when you are ready for it to start working. This highly
advanced anti-aging moisturizing formulation is designed with a remarkable dual delivery
system technology, DualSense. This revolutionary technology keeps two different but
essential delivery systems separated until you are ready to begin using the product, and,
therefore, preserving the highest levels of product effectiveness.

How does DualSense Delivery System Technology work?

The two different delivery systems of Climate Control consist of the clear liquid top layer,
SenePlex and a gelatinous blue matrix containing our SelPlex Complex combined with a
high dosage of Sodium Hyaluronate (additional humectants) as the bottom layer. The delivery
system of the bottom layer SelPlex, in which lies a mixture of unique ingredients and raw
materials, allows for penetration of the SenePlex actives when combined, delivering to the
skin much needed essential fatty acids that are crucial in healthy cellular development and
cannot be synthesized by the human body. The delivery system of SenePlex, the top layer, is
a liquid solution which delivers all the beneficial ingredients to the cells when applied to the
skin. The actives impact the growth of living cells and increase the cellular renewal process.

When ready to use, vigorously shaking the bottle mixes the two delivery systems together
by activating the active ingredients of SenePlex. Thus, two become one – the DualSense
Delivery System provides a mechanism and a vehicle for the fresh actives of SenePlex
delivery system to be available for penetration into the deepest layers of the skin, as well as
providing the skin particular essential acids it cannot synthesize itself.

Why does DualSense Delivery System Technology Work?

It is well known throughout the cosmetic and skin care industries that when contained within
a mixture of other ingredients, the effectiveness of “actives” diminishes with time. It is also
known throughout the scientific communities of the cosmetic industries that the emulsifiers
in the suspension fluids are suppose to deliver the actives into the skin. Emulsifiers are
ingredients that help assist in the production of an emulsion, or the “blend” of ingredients
that are seemingly unable to be mixed together. Emulsifiers are made of molecules, the size
of which is measured in molecular weights. Molecular weights of the majority of emulsifiers
are much too large to penetrate the skin, therefore unable to deliver actives and other
beneficial ingredients into the layers of the skin.

The actives in SenePlex Complex are not activated until vigorously shaken and evenly
distributed throughout the SelPlex suspension delivery system. SelPlex “self” suspension

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 51


delivery system is formulated using herbal oil extracts mixed with vitamins and tocopherols.
Both SenePlex and SelPlex delivery systems are beneficial to the skin and can stand alone
as delivery systems in separate products. However, by combining these two delivery
systems together into one, the combined affects of this unique DualSense Delivery System,
is remarkable.

The DualSense Delivery System Technology aids in providing more moisture and other
beneficial ingredients contained in the ‘self’ suspension fluid by penetrating into the deepest
layers of your skin as it distributes the fresh and newly activated ‘actives’ of the SenePlex
Complex. This process alone increases the effectiveness of the SeneDerm with SenePlex
Anti-Aging SkinCare System.

Who should use SeneDerm with SenePlex Climate Control Moisturizer/SelPlex?

Those with sensitive and very dry skin types may experience the beauty of our anti-aging
system by using Climate Control. Sensitive skin types and very dry skin types may use
Climate Control Moisturizer before applying SeneDerm DayTime or Evening Moisturizer or
SenePlex EyeCreme.

Sensitive skin tends to lack moisture at the cellular level. Lack of moisture causes dryness,
which in turn, causes irritation, creating a “heating sensation” in sensitive skin. Additional
humectants help to increase moisture content. As moisture spreads, so too does SenePlex.
The herbal oil extracts soothe irritations of the skin as the moisturizer relieves the dryness.
The “heat sensation” is eliminated. Thus…Climate Control!

Within eight weeks of usage, the cellular renewal cycle begins to increase in the skin, making
proper moisture content and beautiful skin a reality. Climate Control is also perfect for those
who experience dryness of skin as a result of changing climates from one season to the
next. Exposing skin to varying climates and inconsistent diets while traveling may contribute
to temporary dryness as well. Climate Control is perfect for the times you “listen to your
skin” and hear your skin asking for a bit more moisture.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Climate Control is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:

SelPlex: a blend of herbal oil extracts, vitamins and tocopherols that soothe the skin.

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic Enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil: an effective herbal remedy to treat


eczema and skin conditions.

Simmondsia Chinensis: Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) acts
as a moisturizer and emollient agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness,
containing natural Tocopherol to minimize oxidation and lipid pre oxidation.

52 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


Rosa Mochata Seed Oil: or rosehip seed oil is derived from cold pressing hips of
the rare forest shrub (Rosa affinis rubiginosa or Rosa moschata) found growing in
southern central Chile in the shadow of the Andes Mountains. This member of the
rose family has flowers that are pink in color, and when the petals fall, the shrub
develops vivid, orangey: red seed pods called rosehips. This rosehip oil has been
used by local people for its soothing and moisturizing properties. The oil was found
not only to help halt the advancement of aging but to actually lessen the appearance
of aging and scarring, while restoring natural skin tone and color.

Santalum album (Sandalwood) Oil: assists with chapped, dry or inflamed skin and
has wonderful moisturizing and hydrating properties. The toning effect is useful
when fighting oily skin.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: acts as a base; an oily liquid made from coconut oil.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the


activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin
ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating
wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage
and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the
sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the
skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract: a plant native to the South


Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient
products. This powerful anti: oxidant provides free: radical protection and maximum
moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.

aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the


extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant
than Glycerin.

Butylene Glycol: a humectant that retains scent and preserves against spoilage.

Phenyl Trimethicone: improves emolliency and water repellency and detackifies


Skin care products.

DMDM Hydantoin: prevent molds, mildews, and bacterial spoilage.

The Science Behind the Product


Urbanization

Where has the pure air gone? Atmospheric pollution peaks are
increasingly common. Today, there are cities where this pollution
is already part of everyday life, to the extent that the sun cannot
easily breaking through, even in the height of summer.

The effects of pollution are intensified depending on the


concentrations of pollutant substances and the frequency and duration of exposure. They
range from simple irritation of the mucus membranes to respiratory diseases, skin cancers
or disorders affecting the nervous or digestive systems.

Pollution can have dramatic impacts on the skin. It can alter the skin’s moisture-regulating
capacity due to free radicals generated by pollutants. When put to such a harsh test, the

54 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


skin barrier can lose its integrity and dry out. Asphyxiated or even intoxicated, the skin can
lose its radiance and take on a muddy complexion. The first signs of inflammation quickly
appear through redness and tingling. Last, but not least, it should be noted that pollution
can also be responsible for the significant rise in the number of sensitive or reactive skin
types amongst urban populations.

Cigarette smoke is another pollutant that is equally harmful to the beauty and health of the
skin. Smoking isn’t only dangerous for the lungs! Cigarette smoke contains heavy metals
such as cadmium, which generate free radicals on the surface of the skin and can alter its
structure.

Because of the hole in the ozone layer, the concentration of


U.V. (ultra violet) radiations reaching the surface of the Earth is
constantly increasing. Now, ever-present U.V. radiations are no
longer just a summer hazard. They partner in damage with free
radicals and can threaten the body’s biological stability and
its integrity.

SeneShield

To combat these hazards we have formulated SeneSerum-C with an urbanization-defending


blend of ingredients, called SeneShield. SeneShield includes a natural plant sorbitol and
yeast extract, creating a non-occlusive, transparent shield for skin that protects and helps
reduce aging.

After Radiation

S.M.A.R.T. Ingredients

Today’s advanced ingredient technologies allow for more effective physical benefits to skin.
S.M.A.R.T. Ingredients actually help fight the aging process of cells by Soothing, Moisturizing,
supporting Anti-aging, Restructuring, & enhancing the Touch of skin. That means ingredients
of today can actually help to repair the damage of cells caused by toxins and reverse the
damage, helping to correct damage caused by urbanization.

Some of the S.M.A.R.T. ingredients included are:

Biosaccharide Gum-1, a moisturizing and skin soothing ingredient produced by the


fermenting plants: maize sorbitol and soya peptone. It delivers amazing effects such as:
• Soothing and reducing skin sensitivity
• Moisturizing from the 1st hour post-application and lasting for up to 8 hours
• Anti-aging support from stimulation of epidermal sirtuin-1 molecules
• Restructuring through stimulation of epidermal differentiation
• Touch – makes skin as soft as silk to the touch.

Loricrin Increase

56 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


Loricin is a major protein component of cells of the epidermis, or outermost layer of skin.

Sirtuin Increase

Sirtuins are a class of proteins that influence cellular processes, like aging and inflammation.

Involucrin Increase

Involucrin is a protein component of skin that contributes to cell formation.

The restructuring effect presents a double activity:


• Physical - filmogenic effect, skin feels enhancement & moisturizing properties.
Made for all ages, all types of skin.
• Biological – stimulation of longevity proteins, regulation of inflammation markers
and epidermic differentiation, via the interaction of its glycan structure with
keratinocytes receivers.

C-Beads – Encapsulated, Stabilized Vitamin C

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 57


C-Beads presents a smoothing and anti-wrinkle effect to skin that consist of a more advanced
and effective form of stabilized Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) and made of elements
which help to repair previous damage of cells.

Vitamin C is used for cell replenishment. The human body cannot produce Vitamin C for
itself. Generally, you must eat food or take vitamins as a source to replenish Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is also an anti-oxidant that helps fight off ultraviolet free radicals.

The Vitamin C used in SeneSerum-C with SenePlex is stabilized, meaning it really works
and is ‘active’ within the SeneSerum-C mixture as opposed to using unstabilized Vitamin C
blends that do not work.

Vitamin C works as an essential factor for the normal formation, maintenance, and structural
stability of collagen. Collagen is the key component to most tissues. It is the main protein
of connective tissue. It is the main component of extra cellular matrix that supports most
tissues and gives cells structure from the outside. Its effects include:
• Anti-Oxidant activity, inhibiting lipid peroxidation.
• Clarifying and Brightening Effect – clarifying and brightening activity, inhibiting
melanogenesis. Provides a more even skin tone.
• MMP inhibition (reduction of free radicals) which protects against cell damage.
• Collagen synthesis – stimulation of collagen production.
• Collagen protection
• Improves penetration

• Prevention of UV-B and UV-A damage

No UV-A W/O ‘Adv. C Ingredient’ With ‘Adv. C Ingredient’

58 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


• Doubles collagen synthesis by 100%
• Beneficial for acne prone skin types too

Vitamin C is the key ingredient that helps amino acids, which in turn effect the production
of collagen. The actives in SenePlex Complex+ and the other beneficial vitamins including
stabilized Vitamin C are absorbed by the skin.

Grape Juice Extract Blend

The Grape Juice Extract Blend included in SeneSerum-C acts


as a natural preservative. It also contains malic acid, which is
considered an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) to help exfoliate the top
layers of skin, promote moisture restoration and help penetration of
other ingredients. These actions will help correct discoloration and
improve skin’s texture in general.

SenePlex Complex+

SenePlex Complex+ works to increase cellular renewal and combat signs of aging. It is a
mixture of unique ingredients and raw materials contained within a delivery system that
allows for penetration and delivery of the SenePlex Complex+ actives into the second layer
of the skin, the dermis, increasing cellular renewal.

The use of SeneSerum-C with SenePlex and its delivery of beneficial ingredients through the
C-Beads helps accelerate the rate, depth, and extent of penetration of beneficial ingredients
to the skin to achieve more efficient and even absorption. Therefore, based upon the facts
listed above we can conclude that SeneSerum-C with SenePlex Complex+:
• Contains stabilized Vitamin C and helps to increase collagen production for
firmer skin.
• Enhances the effects of SenePlex Complex+.
• More efficiently and evenly delivers a variety of active, anti-aging ingredients to the
skin for faster, more luminous results.
• Increases skin’s natural ability to form an effective, protective bacterial and fungicidal
layer that helps decrease the aging of the skin.
• Helps to inactivate carcinogenic chemicals and free radicals from the skin’s surface.
• Helps to increase ability of the skin’s protective layer to shield against harmful
ultraviolet rays of the sun and free radicals.
• Includes Vitamin A, Vitamin E and a blend of moisturizers that effectively make skin
soft and supple.
• Helps rough, dull skin become smoother and more luminous.

Spirulina Maxima (Algae Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun,
and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum
corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A): fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening
of the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis,
known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger,
plumper skin cells. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the


activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
anti-oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin

content of oily and acne prone skin with sun protection.

The Science Behind the Product


Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 1%. Topical salicylic acid is used to help
clear and prevent pimples and skin blemishes in people who have acne. Topical
salicylic acid is also used to treat skin conditions that involve scaling or overgrowth of skin
cells such as psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the
body), ichthyoses (inborn conditions that cause skin dryness and scaling), dandruff, corns,
calluses, and warts on the hands or feet.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Day Time Moisturizer Oily to Acne is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few
key components:

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 61


SenePlex Complex: the Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal and naturally
exfoliates, moisturizes and nourishes the skin.

Bisabolol & Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract Complex: a very powerful
anti-irritant that prevents irritation and redness caused by environmental and
chemical damage.

Hydromanil Complex: comes from ingredients that include the seed of the tara tree
that grows in a very dry climate in the Andes Mountains in Peru. The seeds have a
unique ability to retain moisture even after years of being in the dry environment.
The manufacturer has been able to extract the hydrating components of the seed
and the clinical use shows immediate, intermediate and long term increases in skin
hydration. Clinical studies have shown a 10% concentration of Hydromanil produces
a 21% moisture boost in the skin after 4 hours. Studies have shown that the skin
continues to have significantly greater hydration after three weeks.

Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Oil: Lubricates, boosts collagen and elastin production
of the skin and regenerates the hydrolipid barrier that is constantly subject to
aggressions mainly from the sun. It photo-protects the skin against UV radiation,
particularly UVB that causes erythema.

Tetrapeptide 21 & Tripeptide 1: a blend of peptides that minimizes the appearance


of wrinkles and increases collagen production and skin smoothness.

Epilobium Angustifolium (Willowherb) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract: used for


their potent anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and free radical-scavenging effects.
Therapeutic products for various skin conditions such as those for eczema,
psoriasis, seborrhea, fungal infections, and rosacea have incorporated willowherb
as a functional active ingredient.

Arginine : an Amino acid that has antioxidant properties and can be helpful for
wound healing; used because it is extremely gentle.

Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil: a natural anti-oxidant. This ingredient is considered
a must for emolliency in skin care with a superior moisturizing effect on the upper
layer of the skin and can aid in reducing scars.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: acts as a moisturizer and emollient agent
to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness.

Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil: a very rich, moisturizing treatment with natural
sunscreen properties. It is a very stable oil that contains lecithin and more than 20
percent essential unsaturated fatty acids. The age of skin is partly determined by its
content of soluble collagen. A recent study found it significantly increases the water-
soluble collagen content in the dermis while offering protection from ultraviolet rays.

Butyrospermum Parki (Shea Butter) : a natural moisturizer and plant lipid. Lipids
are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture evaporation from the
skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface.

62 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (stabilized Vitamin C) : helps increase collagen
production & diminish wrinkles.

Panthenol (pro Vitamin B) : Besides the wrinkle reducing effects that panthenol
provides to skin, it has been proven in numerous studies that it can be used for acne
treatment and prevention.

Tocopheral (Vitamin E): essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells
and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant and has been shown
to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. It is a dynamic weapon
against premature aging and combating wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop
the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s
also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays once it’s absorbed.

Directions for Use


For external use only. Do not use in combination with additional topical acne medications,
other than the SeneDerm Oily to Acne system. Apply to face and neck in the morning, after
cleansing thoroughly. If excessive drying or peeling occurs, start with one application daily,
gradually increase to twice daily, or as directed by a doctor.

DayTime Moisturizer Normal to Oily


Don’t avoid using moisturizer because you have oily skin generally caused by
larger facial pores or even daily stress. You’ll just end up with dehydrated skin.
And although oily, this skin type still needs to be fed essential nutrients and
protection from the harmful elements of the environment.

The Science Behind the Product


An oily skin day moisturizer should contain some ingredients that will control
the activity of the sebaceous glands, or sebum control. It is now possible to
“reprogram” this type of skin. Blackheads are not caused by dirt but by sebum
blocking the hair follicles. They attain their color when the sebum oxidizes on exposure to
the air. SeneDerm DayTime Moisturizer with SenePlex Complex for oily skin contains jojoba
oil and Squalene to control sebum production and reduce oil production of the skin.

The botanicals contained in this product are unique filtering ingredients, which help provide
environmental protection. They are a key element for creating the sunshield effect for
your skin.

DayTime Moisturizer Normal to Dry
Even if skin is considered “normal”, it still requires moisture to maintain its health.
Dry skin either lacks oil and/or is dehydrated. The goal of a great product for skin
in this state is to deliver vital oils and vitamins, extra moisture, and to provide a
way to bind moisture to the skin throughout the day. If skin is not shielded from
the environment, this skin type is highly likely exposed to constant and steady
transference (loss) of moisture from the skin to the atmosphere.

The Science Behind the Product


The DayTime Moisturizer combines ingredients known as humectants, which
actually draw moisture from the air and bind it to the skin. The SeneGence DayTime
Moisturizer with SenePlex Complex for dry skin does just this. It attracts moisture from the
environment. Moreover, it contains high levels of SenePlex Complex to seal in the moisture
and encourage cellular growth.

The anti-oxidant and botanical rich treatment of this product to your face helps hydrate
and moisturize deep into the layers of the skin. Once again, the botanicals contained in this
product are unique, filtering ingredients. They provide environmental protection and are a
key element for creating the mechanical sunshield effect for your skin.

SeneDerm with SenePlex Evening


Moisturizers
The Evening Moisturizers contain a more concentrated formulation of SenePlex Complex.
These rich ingredients penetrate deep into the skin to provide moisture, hydration, and
lubrication while you sleep. While at rest, the skin is most susceptible to the penetration
of nutrients and treatments. During sleep, movements of the muscles in the face are at
a minimum allowing the skin to remain soft and absorbent to products on the face. The
SeneDerm Evening Moisturizer aids cell production and skin regeneration.

What does this mean? Well, it takes about 28 days for a cell to be born and to make the
journey from the bottom most layer of the skin to the top layer, the epidermis. By the time a
cell reaches the skin’s surface, it has lost most of its water content and appears dry and thin.
The “old” cells that reach the surface fall off by themselves or are sloughed off during the
process of cleansing or exfoliation. This entire process slows down due to age, ultraviolet
light exposure, sickness, improper nutrition, drugs, and so on.

SeneDerm Evening Moisturizer with SenePlex Complex for both dry and oily skins supports
this most important cell regeneration process with its ingredients as you sleep.

Evening Moisturizer Oily to Acne (US Only)

cells such as psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the
body), ichthyoses (inborn conditions that cause skin dryness and scaling), dandruff, corns,
calluses, and warts on the hands or feet.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Evening Moisturizer Oily to Acne is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few
key components:

SenePlex Complex: the Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal and naturally
exfoliates, moisturizes and nourishes the skin.

Hydromanil Complex: comes from ingredients that include the seed of the tara tree
that grows in a very dry climate in the Andes Mountains in Peru. The seeds have a
unique ability to retain moisture even after years of being in the dry environment.
The manufacturer has been able to extract the hydrating components of the seed
and the clinical use shows immediate, intermediate and long term increases in skin
hydration. Clinical studies have shown a 10% concentration of Hydromanil produces
a 21% moisture boost in the skin after 4 hours. Studies have shown that the skin
continues to have significantly greater hydration after three weeks.

to improve the skin’s elasticity and suppleness.

Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil: a very rich, moisturizing treatment with natural
sunscreen properties. It is a very stable oil that contains lecithin and more than 20
percent essential unsaturated fatty acids. The age of skin is partly determined by its
content of soluble collagen. A recent study found it significantly increases the water-
soluble collagen content in the dermis while offering protection from ultraviolet rays.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 71


Butyrospermum Parki (Shea Butter): a natural moisturizer and plant lipid. Lipids are
the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture evaporation from the skin

Moisturizing the Eye Area


The important point about the skin around the eye is that it is unusually thin, and is not
firmly tethered to underlying structures. For example, this means that if the skin around the
eye is pulled or tugged when applying or removing eye makeup or even normal blinking
and smiling, it is very easy to stretch it and cause small wrinkles. After birth, and as the
skin ages, its elastin and collagen begin to deplete and the appearance of the skin starts a
deterioration process.

SeneDerm EyeCrème
The SeneGence SeneDerm EyeCrème with SenePlex Complex represents
some of the most advanced skin technology known today. Not only does
its content contain our Anti-Aging SenePlex Complex, it also contains a
variety of natural oils of varying molecular weights for maximum penetration.
SeneDerm EyeCrème melts at skin temperature by forming a silk-like
coating that reduces drag when applying additional eye makeup, such as
shadows, and it fills in fine lines and wrinkles to eliminate shadowing in the lines and wrinkles,
making the skin area appear smoother.

The Science Behind SeneDerm EyeCrème


The skin around the eyes is skin that moves the most on your body besides the skin around
your lips. You’re constantly blinking; you naturally squint trying to see things, so there is
constant movement. Looking at a cross section of skin you see the top layer and several
other layers until you get to the bottom where cells are manufactured. These cells slowly
move up to the top. It’s normally-depending on age-a twenty to twenty-eight day cycle for
cells to grow from the bottom up to the top. Because skin is moving, that means the top layer
moves at a faster rate than the bottom layer, where there is a sheering type action occurring.

The goal here is to increase lubricity at each one of these layers so that cells could move
easily because they are lubricated (like constantly adding oil to a machine so that it does
not wear out). In order to deliver a lubricant to one layer and then another layer beneath,
the lubricant’s molecules must be different sizes to travel down to the lower layers; its
sizes have to be relatively small. SeneDerm EyeCrème has an array of different types and
molecular sizes of lubricants to reach the different layers. SeneDerm EyeCrème is not just
for smoothness; it’s to improve the condition of skin around the eye because that’s where
skin first becomes wrinkled due to the constant movement.

78 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


Key Ingredients and Benefits
EyeCrème is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic Enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil: non-greasy oil easily absorbed, and
helps to leave the skin soft and satiny smooth.

Simmondsia Chinensis: Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) acts
as a moisturizer and emollient agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness,
containing natural Tocopherol to minimize oxidation and lipid pre oxidation.

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil: Used as an emollient it acts as a barrier


and healing agent; charged with vitamins A, D and E, Sun flower oil is also rich in
minerals and unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic and oleic acids).

Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil: a very rich, moisturizing treatment for skin, with
natural sunscreen properties. It is very stable oil that contains lecithin and more than
20 percent essential unsaturated fatty acids. The age of skin is partly determined
by its content of soluble collagen. A recent study found it significantly increases
the water: soluble collagen content in the dermis while offering protection from
ultraviolet rays.

Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui) Seed Oil: referred to as the Candlenut; used for its
soothing properties.

Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil: a plant derived vegetable oil that has rapid skin
penetration and leaves a velvety feel.

Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil: a natural selective estrogen receptor modulator (or
phytoestrogen), mimics the effects of estrogen to counteract the negative effects
of estrogen loss on the skin; proven to improve skin hydration, smoothness,
and firmness.

Zea Mays (Corn) Oil: an emollient rich in essential fatty acids (required for cellular
repair) and Tocopherols.

Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract: a plant native to the South


Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient
products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum
moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the
skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Yeast Extract: a dietary source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex)
aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 79


Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the
activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
anti: oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin
ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating
wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage
and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the
sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Retinyl Palmitate: It is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of


the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis,
known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger,
plumper skin cells. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Cholecalciferol: Vitamin D Bioactive vitamin D or calcitriol is a steroid hormone that


has long been known for its important role in regulating body levels of calcium and
phosphorus, and in mineralization of bones. More recently, it has become clear that
receptors for vitamin D are present in a wide variety of cells, and that this hormone
has biologic effects which extend far beyond control of mineral metabolism.

Squalene: Deactivates the free radical known as singlet oxygen, the free radical
that is generated by exposure to the sun’s UV radiation. Squalene can also absorb
and bind fat: soluble toxins, helping to excrete them from the body. These multiple
functions of Squalene make it an excellent nutritional support product for the skin.
It helps to soften and diminish tiny lines. It helps to soothe dry, irritated skin and
creates a barrier to protect your skin against the harsh environment.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Cyclomethicone: a silicone that feels silky on the skin introduces moisture and is a
water: binding agent that holds up well, even when the skin becomes wet.

Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate: a plant derived carbohydrate used to thicken


a solution.

Aluminum/Magnesium Hydroxide Stearate: helps to stabilize emulsions by


thickening and stabilizing the oils.

Directions for Use


Use SeneDerm EyeCrème in the evenings before bed. Using smallest finger, gently stipple
EyeCrème to skin just below bottom lashes and onto eyelids from bottom of lashes to
eyebrow. Oily eyelids do not require EyeCrème.

SeneDerm Collagen Night Pak


SeneDerm Collagen Night Pak by SeneGence is a break-through
anti-aging sleep treatment product that harnesses the power of
100% natural marine collagen, revitalizing caffeine, and SeneGence’s
proprietary anti-aging complex, SenePlex Complex+ to seal in
moisture while you sleep, and to create a protective veil that helps
to prevent drying and damage that occurs overnight and can lead to
unwanted signs of aging.

The Science Behind the Product


SeneDerm Collagen Night Pak with SenePlex Complex+ is formulated with rich, natural,
plant-based marine collagen that will help to improve skin regeneration, help stabilize and
maintain moisture levels throughout the night, and help to rebuild the skin’s collagen matrix
during sleep. Collagen Night Pak can aid in delaying the skin’s aging process by intensifying
skin’s elasticity and working to visibly decrease wrinkles.

Your skin naturally loses moisture during the sleeping process, and can even become
damaged and wrinkled by your pillow. When gently mixed with any formula of SeneDerm

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 83


Evening Moisturizer, Collagen Night Pak creates a cushion like buffer that helps decrease
folds in skin caused by surface pressures. It also acts as a light mask to prevent the loss
of beneficial ingredients of the moisturizers you apply each night. Night Pak actually helps
rebuild and strengthen your skin’s natural collagen matrix to reveal healthy, younger looking
skin upon waking.

Two separate phases of cream and gel give maximum efficiency and efficacy. SenePlex+
is now visibly seen as a spiral matrix with the mineral portions of SenePlex Complex+
seen as gold specs. The blue gel contains natural components, which synergic operation
answers the requirements of mature skin with propensity for loss of elasticity. Collagen
Night Pak protects from aggressive influence of external factors (free radicals), and offers
skin cells revitalization and nutrition. Rich in marine collagen, which improves processes of
regeneration in the epidermis and helps to rebuild the skin’s collagen matrix, Collagen Night
Pak works to improve and helps to stabilize moisture levels. This effect gently strains the
skin and intensifies its elasticity and works to visibly decreases wrinkles.

SeneDerm Collagen Night Pak with SenePlex Complex+ is suitable for all skin types.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


SeneDerm Collagen Night Pak is made of a combination of ingredients including beneficial
botanicals and minerals. Here are a few key components:

Natural Marine Collagen: from the sea algae, works to restore and rebuild the
collagen produced by your skin.

Caffeine: rejuvenates and revitalizes, helping to reduce puffiness and under-


eye bags.

Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the


extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant
than Glycerin. It is the key water-maintaining substances in human skin.

SenePlex Complex+: Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Bambusa Vulgaris Extract (Golden Bamboo): a rich source of natural Silica,


containing over 70% organic Silica. Silica is lost in the skin as we age. Silica
stimulates chondroblasts providing strength and resilience to collagen and elastin. It
may protect the skin against bacteria and fungus, helping avoid various skin troubles
and also contains abundant antioxidants and vitamins, a rich source of flavone,
phenolic acid, lactone, and polyose.

Pisum Sativum (Pea) Extract: keeps specific enzymes known as proteases from
degrading skin proteins such as collagen and elastin which are responsible for giving
skin its firmness and elasticity. It can therefore protect collagen and elastin against
the damaging effects of proteases activated by aging and through different types
of skin abuse (UV, chemical, immunological, etc.)Used in skin care products, pea
extract acts as an anti-enzyme complex and gives the skin its firmness and elasticity.
A clinical study has demonstrated significant improvement in skin elasticity (+16.7%)
after just three weeks of treatment.

84 Section IV: SeneDerm with SenePlex Anti-Aging SkinCare System


Arnica Montana Flower Extract: made-up of many components, including
flavonoids, Silicic Acid, cartonoids and essential oils. The extract from this plant
serves as a fungicide and as an immune-stimulant. Medically, Arnica is used externally
as an application for bruises, sprains, stings or wounds. Also used after traumatic
injuries. In body care Arnica provides a layer of warmth and helps to soothe tired and
tight muscles.

Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract: Proven effective in boosting the
immune function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects
of the sun. White tea extract is prepared from the unopened buds of the camellia
sinensis (green tea) plant; it is a powerful anti-oxidant.

Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of
enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant
and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments.
Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles
by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to
protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s
ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Directions for Use

As we age, our skin cycle slows down and natural exfoliation doesn’t occur as often as it
does in youth. This effective facial buffer is just what you need to speed up cell turnover and
reveal new skin.

This proprietary formula contains particles of natural Vanuatu Volcanic Ash excavated from
a specific area of Mt. Yasur, the active volcano of Vanuatu. When analyzed, the ash particles
were shown to contain over 70% titanium and 30% iron, magnesium and calcium. This is
a perfect combination for exfoliating skin without irritating it, making this product an ideal
alternative to harsh microdermabrasion treatments.

86 Section V: SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex

skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Sodium Hyaluronate: Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size than


Hyaluronic acid, causing it to easily penetrate the skin’s surface, and is able to
retain a relatively large amount of water — up to 1,000 its own weight. This means
it can penetrate to lower layers of the skin, attract and retain water, and promote
nutrient absorption.

Phenoxyethanol: an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.

Panthenol: Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new healthy tissues.

Caprylyl Glycol: plant derived skin-conditioning agent used as a preservative.

SeneDerm Solutions LashExtend Lash


Lengthener
LashExtend grows lashes 25% longer and fuller in only two weeks.
This product was formulated for those customers who are clamoring
to grow longer, fuller natural lashes and, in exchange, throw away
false eyelashes worn because of ever-thinning and breaking lashes.

Science Behind the Product:


Only recently has it been possible to market a cosmetic product
which can make the eye lashes grow in a manner that is substantiated
by controlled, published, peer-reviewed studies. Hair growth in-vivo
DATA proves a 25% increase in hair growth, for thicker and longer
eyelashes with one application a day to lashes, after only 2 weeks
of use. Refer to the Product Test Results, Clinicals, and Conclusions
section of this manual for more detailed information.

90 Section V: SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex


SeneGence’s LashExtend is formulated with patented SenePeptides™. SenePeptides are a
series of isolated active peptides with anti-aging hair growth properties that stimulate gene
expression causing increased keratin production, which makes hair follicles grow faster,
thicker, and longer. They are combined into a formulation base of glycerin and water.

LashExtend is NOT formulated with drugs like prostaglandin or prostaglanoids made to treat
ocular conditions found in other lash growth products. Some experts say these ingredients
may have long-term side effects.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Unlike some of the other formulations offered in the market, LashExtend is safe to use
as there are no drugs and no concerns of long-term side effects in our formulation…and
we have clinical studies to substantiate these statements (See the Product Test Results,
Clinicals, and Conclusions Section of this manual).

SenePeptides-17: stimulates hair growth.

Glycerin: a solvent, an emollient, and humectant that helps keep moisture in the
cream and helps the product to spread better across a surface-reducing drag and
pull. Nontoxic, non-irritating and non-allergenic to the skin.

Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract: Proven effective in boosting the immune
function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects of the sun.
White tea extract is prepared from the unopened buds of the camellia sinensis (green
tea) plant; it is a powerful anti-oxidant.

Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract: A herb that has been shown to have
anti-irritant, soothing, and anti-oxidant properties.

Directions for Use


You may apply Climate Control, SeneSerum-C, and Day or Evening Moisturizers to eyelid
before applying LashExtend. Ensure application of LashExtend to the very base of lashes so
that the solution may flow down into and between the shafts of the eye lash.

Apply clear formula both morning and evening until desired length has been achieved (at
least 25% longer lashes). Once the desired affect has been achieved apply twice a day two
to three times per week to maintain long luscious lashes. If using colored formula, apply in
the morning as you would your eyeliner.

Note: SeneDerm Solutions LashExtend formulations and SenseCosmetics EyeSense


formulations are completely different and cannot be mixed together to create a single
eyeliner. Each should be used separately.

SeneDerm Solutions LipVolumizer
Lip VOLUME and TEXTURE do matter. Clearly delineated
plumpy lips are synonymous with youth and sensuality.
A seductive feature, the smile illuminates the face.
LipVolumizer Increases lip volume up to 20% and
increases lip moisture up to 54% within one month of
daily use.

The Science Behind the Product


Excessively thin lips are sometimes a source of frustration for certain women since the
symbolic value of luscious pouting lips is great.

Continuous movement, subjected to repeated stress (cigarette smoking,


pouting, ultra-violet radiation, dry air, etc.) gravity and chronological aging
all contribute to why the lips are deformed and change shape. With age,
the harmony of the mouth is impaired. Both the upper and lower lips
droop and appear less full. Thus, lips seem less sensual.

Aging of the lip zone is characterized by increased water loss and volume,
the inability to produce collagen, and therefore a decrease in dermal
density. Vertical wrinkles begin to appear. The lip area is fragile in nature
and needs protection and internal synthesis (support structure) in order
to overcome this eventual decline.

Naturally dry due to the fineness of the external barrier and absence of moisturizing glands,
the vermilion of the lips (external covering of lip area) is constantly subjected to drying.

We’ve strengthened the formulated mechanism to increase moisturization to help eliminate


drying and cracking and also mixed it with the ingredients needed to help reinforce the
internal matrix of the lip area to increase volume. By mixing natural ingredients like the
Portulaca Pilosa or ‘Kiss-Me-Quick’ plant with specific peptides that help boost the collagen
matrix production and other ingredients to increase moisturization of lips and blending them
with SenePlex complex to increase cellular renewal we have formulated ingredients shown
to achieve the following results:

Increased Lip Volume


+8.6% for all test participants up to +19.6% for those with thinnest lips

Increased Lip Moisturization


+50.6% for all the dermis

Restored Density of Lips


+8.5%

92 Section V: SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex


Increased Firmness and ability of the skin to withstand impacts
+13.3% and + 14.9% respectively

Increased Fringe Protection


+15.1% in volume curve of lips for 69% of test participants and 10.5% increase
in softness for 83% of test participants

SeneDerm Solutions Anti-Wrinkle Treatment


SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex Anti-Wrinkle Treatment contains a
combination of ingredients shown to reduce light and medium wrinkle depth an
average of 34% (up to 63% in some cases) after 4 weeks of treatment.

One of the most striking signs of skin aging is the intensity of frown and wrinkle
lines of the forehead, between the eyes, the nasal area reaching from the base
of the nose to the corner of the month, the chin, upper lip, and neck areas. This
occurs in time and is affected by certain biochemical, genetic, and physiological
factors enhanced by environmental exposures. However, secondary factors
such as repeated facial movements caused by contraction of the muscles during
varied facial expressions can cause exaggerated and unnecessary emphasis
and intensify light and medium wrinkles found in these areas of the face.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is formulated with ingredients that reduce the intensity of wrinkle lines
(and therefore the depth) while at the same time stimulate cell production and restore proper
moisture content of cells to produce fuller, more plump cells in areas that are recessed.

SeneDerm Solutions Spot-On Blemish &


Acne Treatment
The effective solution to help reduce the appearance of blemish and acne spots
on skin. Formulated with a powerful anti-acne agent, this targeted “spot remover”
works directly on unsightly blemishes to clear them up quick.

The Science Behind the Product


Active Ingredient: Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) 10%. This hardworking pimple fighter has been
proven effective in treating acne by killing the Propionibacteria acnes bacteria responsible
for outbreaks. However, irritation is a common problem when BPO is not dissolved or
delivered effectively.

In response to this problem Dimethyl Isosorbide (DMI) was designed to help dissolve actives
such as BPO in formulations and prevent its re-agglomeration (act or process of gathering
into a mass). This increases the efficacy of BPO by limiting its particle size to better target
the pores and eliminate the source of acne. Further, by keeping the particles from re-
agglomerating, it reduces skin irritation. It is generally known that actives are only as effective
as the vehicles used to deliver them. DMI is designed to aid penetration into the epidermis
by increasing the polarity of the surface skin layers to carry the active BPO to the pores of
the skin in order to kill the bacteria that cause acne, where it can act more effectively.

In fact, the ingredient was shown to be a better delivery vehicle for BPO than Ethoxydiglycol
(EDG) a commonly used competitive material, as determined experimentally and in a
theoretical model comparing the polarity of the delivery vehicle to the solute, in this case BPO.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 97


It was found that more than double the amount of BPO can be dissolved in Dimethyl
Isosorbide than in such competitive delivery vehicles. In addition, Dimethyl Isosorbide
ensures BPO has maximum contact time with the pores and acne-causing bacteria.
However, it was not shown to promote penetration into the bloodstream. DMI, a methylated
sorbitol derivative, enhances the activity of BPO while reducing its skin irritation potential.
This material increases the effectiveness of actives in formulations.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Octiperox: an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal

moisture with the purest form of natural moisture retention ingredients known
today. This light and velvety oil from the nut of the Nangai tree will help reduce
the signs of aging, making skin luminous, glowing, and deeply hydrated.

98 Section V: SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex


The Science Behind the Product
As you move closer the equator, and conditions grow hot and arid, skin becomes dryer
and more wrinkled. As you move away from equator and towards the poles, skin becomes
moister because of the humidity in the air. Humidity gives our skin precious water.

Water is the most important component in skin, and is necessary for 99.9% of all reactions.
The biggest way you lose water is through the skin as you perspire. The older you become, the
larger the pores in your skin become, and therefore more water is lost through perspiration.
Loss of water leads to unwanted signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin texture.

With the goal to maintain appropriate moisture levels in skin, we reviewed and surveyed
high-end cosmetic preparations, and they all had 2 things in common:
1. Water
2. Triglycerides- specifically caprylic/capric triglycerides

Caprylic/Capric triglycerides are derived from coconut oil and glycerin, and come in the
form of an oily liquid. The triglycerides are mixed esters composed of caprylic and capric
fatty acids. Caprylic/capric triglyceride has a number of useful properties in the formulation
of cosmetics and skin care. It creates a barrier on the skin’s surface, decreasing the amount
of moisture lost through the skin. Therefore, the triglyceride prevents dryness and also acts
as a conditioning agent.

Fractionated Coconut Oil vs. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride

There is much confusion about the difference between coconut oil and caprylic/capric
triglyceride. Fractionated coconut oil is created by melting coconut oil and then letting it
cool very slowly. The different kinds of fat in the oil separate, based on their different melting
points. This is a physical separation process- no chemical reactions occur. Fractionated
coconut oil typically refers to the liquid portion of the coconut oil that has been separated
from the harder fats.

To fully understand the difference between caprylic/capric triglyceride and fractionated


coconut oil, you must know what triglycerides are. Triglycerides are made up of 2 components-
glycerin and fatty acids. Fatty acids are chains of carbon and hydrogen, and vary in length.
In a fat, the glycerol group holds three fatty acids together, like a hand with three fingers.
This is where the name triglyceride comes from.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 99


Caprylic/capric acids are saturated fatty acids naturally present in coconut oil. However,
to isolate the triglycerides from coconut oil, you have to first separate the fatty acids from
the glycerol group in the raw oil. This separation is done through steam hydrolysis, where
intense heat and pressure is applied to break apart the triglyceride molecule. Then, after the
triglycerides are separated, the oil must go through another process called esterification, to
add the glycerol group back to the fatty acids. These processes create a purified version
of the oil, with different physical properties from the original oil it came from. It feels less
greasy, is highly stable, and absorbs quickly into the skin. It does have the tendency to
solidify, however, at low temperatures.

Nangai Oil is unique because it does not require any chemical process to extract the
triglycerides, unlike coconut oil. Pure caprylic/capric triglycerides are naturally present in
Nangai Oil, and do not require processing or manufacturing in order to create the purest,
most beneficial product to moisturize your skin. This is why we can say that the triglycerides
present in Nangai Oil are all-natural. These natural triglycerides form a barrier on skin that
stops water from evaporating, and at the same time, it does not feel greasy or heavy.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Nangai Oil: a natural oil derived from the Nangai nut that helps skin maintain moisture.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the
skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract: a skin-conditioning agent used in cosmetics


and beauty care products because of its ability to act in oxidative stress and improve
skin conditions.

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

100 Section V: SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex


Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and
skin conditioner.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Directions for Use


For best results, use after cleansing and before moisturizing at night. Apply a few drops
to fingertips and rub until Nangai oil is clear (can be hardened by cold temperature and is
warmed by finger tips); gently spread across surface of skin. Dry skin may use twice a day,
both day and night.

SeneDerm® Solutions NailExtend


Keep nails in top condition and help repair damage with NailExtend.
NailExtend, a nail strengthener and lengthener, was developed to treat a
variety of conditions, including weak, brittle, sensitive, or peeling nails and
even those damaged from acrylics and silk or gel wraps. Its unique delivery
system utilizes protective ingredients, including SenePlex Complex®, vitamins,
growth enhancing peptides and powerful moisturizers, to strengthen, lengthen
and protect nails.

SeneDerm Solutions NailExtend is formulated to help repair existing nail


damage including cracking and splitting. With daily use, future damage can
be prevented as new nails grow back stronger, and results can begin to be
visible after just a few weeks of use.

The Science Behind the Product


Nail Structure

The nail unit as a whole is composed of three


main parts: the nail plate, nail bed and nail
matrix, as seen right. The nail plate is a hard
keratin structure that protects the end of the
finger. The condition and appearance of the nail
plate is well recognized as being an indicator of
the overall health.

Nail cells are produced in the matrix (or nail root)


and “nourished” from the underlying nail bed
until the nail plate leaves the end of the finger.
This “free” nail plate is the most challenged and

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 101


exposed part of the nail unit and is often in the greatest need of cosmetic attention as it is
prone to breakage and splitting.

The nail plate itself is comprised of flattened corneocyte cells and has three distinct layers.
The dorsal (uppermost) layer is 2-3 cell layers thick and contains the oldest, most damaged
cells. The intermediate layer makes up about 3/4 of the nail material, and the ventral (lower)
region is 1-2 cells thick and contains the youngest, softest cells.

The keratin nail plate is highly cross linked, containing approximately 10.5% cystine. This

sulphur containing amino acid is responsible for holding the nail protein structure together and
giving it the structural robustness it needs to perform its functions. This protein structure is
porous and highly water absorbent – increasing water content results in increased flexibility.

The nail plate also contains about 1% lipid, which is thought to reside between the corneocyte
cells. When this is depleted, for example by solvents in nail polish removers, nail brittleness
often results. The nail structure can be affected by exposure to hydration/ dehydration,
solvents and detergents. It has been reported that repeated hydration/dehydration causes a
condition known as onychoschizia, or lamellar dystrophy. This causes the nails to become
dry, brittle and weak and to separate at the free edge.

This condition has been largely attributed to decreased nail plate moisturization, possibly
arising from a change in the protein structure and its ability to bind water and/or decreased
water retention in the areas between the corneocytes where the lipids reside. It has been
suggested that good condition (absence of lamellar dystrophy) can be achieved by hydration
followed by the application of a topical agent which prevents water loss.

NailExtend ingredients, when combined together, make dramatic improvements in the


structure of the nail. It increases strength of the nail, and increases moisture binding properties
which keep nails flexible. Add those ingredients to a peptide solution that stimulates Keratin
production, and you have a fantastic nail strengthener and grower.

102 Section V: SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex


The first picture on the left is an undamaged nail. The dorsal layer is a few cells thick and is
composed of flattened corneocyte cells, which can clearly be observed; the second (middle)
picture is a picture of a nail after 3 weeks of application of NailExtend ingredients. The nail
treated shows only minor areas of cell lifting and corneocytes are also visible; the third
picture on the right is a picture of a nail without NailExtend ingredient application. The nail
has lost the corneocyte cells and the fibrous intermediate region has been exposed. This
demonstrates that the NailExtend ingredients give superior protection to the top of the nail
surface, preventing damage to the structure of the nail.

A closer look on the left shows the nail untreated. The right picture shows the nail after being
treated with NailExtend.

SenePlex

The Beauty is in the Blend


SenseCosmetics with SenePlex Complex includes a full range of color shades that makes
skin on the surface of your face more beautiful. The SenseCosmetics color line is a unique
combination of essential properties of our patented long-lasting color technology blended
with our SeneDerm with SenePlex Complex Anti-Aging SkinCare formulations.

Remember, makeup looks only as good as the skin beneath it! And the skin beneath it is
what SeneDerm is all about. But even using the best skin care products, such as SeneDerm,
cannot do the job alone.

You must also help your body; you can help by getting adequate sleep, drinking plenty
of water, proper nutrition, vitamins, exercise, and stress free moments with massage and
facials. Furthermore, skin changes, so your choice of products may need to be adjusted.
For example, in the summer, your skin is generally drier on the surface and oilier underneath.
In the Winter, your skin is often dry all the way through. Around holidays, for some reason,
your skin tends to be oilier, and if you often travel on airplanes, the recycled air will dry out
your skin.

Treat your skin as your best friend, not as your enemy or a nuisance. The two of you will be
going through life together. Understand it. Be kind and gentle with it. Give it only the best.
Keep it healthy and happy. LISTEN TO IT. If you take care of your skin, it will glow for you.
We can never have that baby skin again, but with knowledge and proper care, we will love
the skin we can create.

MakeSense Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer


The perfect base for a flawless face, MakeSense Silk minimizes pores, fills
wrinkles and offers anti-aging protection. Use alone for naturally beautiful skin,
or use as primer before MakeSense Foundation for a perfect finish.

The Science Behind the Product


MakeSense Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer is beneficial to the skin in six distinctly
different ways. When used as directed it helps make skin look younger as it:
1. Primes the complexion by relaxing and filling fine lines and wrinkles
before foundation application.
2. Firms and tightens by helping to enhance collagen production of
skin.
3. Minimizes the appearance of pores and wrinkles.
4. Evens skin tone and discoloration caused from harmful UV ray exposure and
helps to naturally repair damage.
5. Hydrates and nourishes skin with natural ingredients such as Lavender, Blue
Seaweed, Orchid, and Algae
6. Helps to reduce signs of aging with SenePlex Complex, a patented compound
that increases cellular renewal.

Key Ingredients & Benefits


MakeSense Silk contains many beneficial ingredients, including:

Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the


extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant
than Glycerin. (It is the key water-maintaining substances in human skin. Harsh living
environment and aging can cause the decrease of HA content in skin, and as a result
the water maintaining ability of the skin is weakened and the skin looks dry and rough.
One of the main causes of skin senility is also the decrease of polysaccharides,
such as HA. The special structure characteristic of HA makes it highly moisturizing
and it has a water content regulating function; additionally, its solution has high
viscoelasticity and lubricity. When HA solution is applied on the surface of skin, it
can form an air permeable layer and keep the skin moist and smooth. The small
molecular weight HA can penetrate into dermis layer, fully combine with water,
promote skin blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption and maintain normal

106 Section VI: SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


metabolism, and as a result, it plays a role of wrinkle removing, improving one’s
appearance and improving the health of the skin.

Orchis Mascula (Orchid) Flower Extract: used as a preparation of emollient


products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum
moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A): Vitamin A, it is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity
and thickening of the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role
in RNA synthesis, known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation
to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the
skin and the body, This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Jojoba: Closely resembles the skin’s natural waxes and oils. This oil aids in the
prevention of moisture loss.

Spirulina Maxima Extract: Hydrating, skin-conditioning, and toning agent.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract: made-up of many components, including


flavonoids, Silicic Acid, cartonoids and essential oils. The extract from this plant
serves as a fungicide and as an immune-stimulant. Medically, Arnica is used externally
as an application for bruises, sprains, stings or wounds. Also used after traumatic
injuries. In body care Arnica provides a layer of warmth and helps to soothe tired and
tight muscles.

Pisum Sativum (Pea) Extract: keeps specific enzymes known as proteases from
degrading skin proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are responsible for
giving skin its firmness and elasticity. It can therefore protect collagen and elastin
against the damaging effects of proteases activated by aging and through different
types of skin abuse (UV, chemical, immunological, etc.). Used in skin care products,
pea extract acts as an anti-enzyme complex and gives the skin its firmness and
elasticity. A clinical study has demonstrated significant improvement in skin elasticity
(+16.7%) after just three weeks of treatment with pea extract.

Panthenol (Vitamin B): Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new


healthy tissues.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): an inert earth mineral used as a thickening


ingredient and sunscreen in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation
and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.

Tocopheryl (Vitamin E): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes
in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant and has
been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. Vitamin E is
a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles by neutralizing

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 107


free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin
against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays
once absorbed into the skin.

moisturization. The Cymbidium Grandifloum (Orchid) Flower Extract is very effective
as a sunscreen.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the
skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the


activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
anti-oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin
ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating
wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage
and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the
sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Retinyl Palmitate: It is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of


the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis,
known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger,
plumper skin cells. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 109


that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Yeast Extract: a source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex) that aids
in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Cyclomethicone: a silicone that feels silky on the skin introduces moisture and is a
water-binding agent that holds up well, even when the skin becomes wet.

Propylene Glycol: organic compound used as a ‘carrier’ or ‘holder’ of active


ingredients that also softens skin.

Directions for Use


MakeSense Foundation with SenePlex smoothes over your skin with ease and provides a
flawless finish.

After applying SeneDerm Moisturizer with SenePlex, dot MakeSense Foundation with
blending brush or sponge to each area of face and then blend evenly. Blend up and out to
hairlines, extend down to throat and inward towards nose and over eyelids. Notice how the
foundation glides onto the skin giving an even, professional finish without the heavy feel
of makeup.

To remove MakeSense Foundation, use specifically formulated Fooops! SenseCosmetic


Liquid Color Remover. (see instructions for Fooops! in this section of the manual)

• Helps protect skin with a mechanical sun shield.
• Helps moisturize and maintain skin’s moisture content and luminosity throughout
the day.
• Stays on all day with a long-lasting color technology.
• Helps make skin more beautiful with SenePlex Complex+
• Provides another layer of SenePlex Complex.

It also includes SeneShield, which fights the effects of urbanization exposure, helping to
reverse the signs of aging by:
• Reducing the dehydrating effect caused by pollution and free radicals
• Reducing photo aging and wrinkle reduction
• Inhibiting enzymes activated by UV exposure or inflammation which contribute to
the breakdown of collagen
• Adding antioxidants to detoxify

Key Ingredients and Benefits


MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation is made of a combination of ingredients. Here
are a few key components:

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic Enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 111


Carrageenan : a natural material that is extracted from the red seaweed plant found
in the Atlantic Ocean. It is used for gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties and
is absorbed into skin quickly. Carrageenan moisturizes faster than Hyaluronic Acid
which must be used for 2 weeks to reach the moisturization levels that Carrageenan
reaches within 24 hours.

Sodium Chloride: natural sea-salt used as a binding agent.

Aribidopsis Extract: a small flowering plant used to help repair damaged skin DNA.

Lecithin: naturally occurring plant source that protects cells from oxidation and
replenishes and repairs skin with its essential fatty acid content. Damage from oxygen
radicals is a main factor in aging and it can come from environmental pollutants, UV-A
induced reactions in skin and from the body’s own stress responses. In addition,
oxygen radicals are the inevitable side-effect of energy production in mitochondria
(parts of cells that conserve energy) of cells. The accumulation of mitochondria is
considered an important element of aging. These radicals damage DNA by oxidizing
its nucleotide bases to for 8-oxo-guanine. This blend shortens the time for nucleus
DNA repair from 24 hours to 2 hours.

Thiotaine (Ergothioneine): a synthetic version of naturally occurring amino acid


normally found in high concentrations in tissues of the body exposed to high levels
of oxidative stress (free-radical damage). It protects the skin from oxidative and DNA
damage. Thiotaine is an antioxidant, protecting the mitochondrial membrane against
oxidation. It also transfers fatty acids into the mitochondria (the power stations of
our cells) to help use oxygen efficiently and to produce more energy. It also protects
DNA from the oxidation of guanine.

Lycium Chinese Fruit Extract, (Goji Berry): a bright red berry from a shrub native to
southeastern Europe and Asia, prized for its high levels of certain phytonutrients likely
to help prevent or treat health conditions caused by oxidation -- cellular damage due
to accumulation of toxins and waste products.

Vassinum Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract: Has astringent and moisturizing


properties; also used as a skin conditioner.

Vaccinum Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract: Rich in flavonoids, citric acid and
vitamin C. Cranberry extract has antioxidant, purifying and antibacterial properties
and is useful as a natural treatment of acne.

Titanium Dioxide: an inert earth mineral used as a thickening ingredient and


sunscreen in cosmetics. It protects skin from UV-A and UV-B radiation and is
considered to have no risk of skin irritation.

Glycerin: a solvent, an emollient, and humectant that helps keep moisture in the
product and helps the product to spread better across a surface-reducing drag and
pull. Non-toxic, non-irritating and non-allergenic to the skin.

Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the


extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective than Glycerin.
It is the key water-maintaining substance in human skin. Harsh living environments

112 Section VI: SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


and aging can cause the decrease of HA content in skin, and as a result the water
maintaining ability of the skin is weakened and the skin looks dry and rough. One of
the main causes of skin senility is also the decrease of polysaccharides, such as HA.
The special structure characteristic of HA makes it highly moisturizing, and it has a
water content regulating function. Additionally, its solution has high viscoelasticity
and lubricity. When HA solution is applied on the surface of skin, it can form an air
permeable layer and keep the skin moist and smooth. The small molecular weight
HA can penetrate into dermis layer, fully combine with water, promote skin blood
microcirculation and nutrient absorption and maintain normal metabolism, and as a
result, it plays a role of wrinkle removing, improving one’s appearance and improving
the health of the skin.

Isobutylmethacrylate/Bis-Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone Acrylate Copolymer:


a film former that exhibits outstanding adhesion, water resistance, and color
retention properties.

Polymethylsilsesquioxane: a silicone ingredient used most often as a film former


that creates a lubricating, smooth, silky feel and increases the skins ability to
repel water.

Orchis Mascula (Orchid) Flower Extract: used as a preparation of emollient


products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum
moisturization. The orchid extract is also very effective as a sunscreen.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Extract: acts as a moisturizer and emollient


agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness, containing natural Tocopherol
to minimize oxidation and lipid pre-oxidation.

Spirulina Maxima Extract: Hydrating, skin-conditioning, and toning agent.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract: made-up of many components, including


flavonoids, Silicic Acid, cartonoids and essential oils. The extract from this plant
serves as a fungicide and as an immune-stimulant. Medically, Arnica is used
externally as an application for bruises, sprains, stings or wounds. Also used after
traumatic injuries. In body care, Arnica provides a layer of warmth and helps to
soothe tired and tight muscles.

Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract: Proven effective in boosting the
immune function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects
of the sun. White tea extract is prepared from the unopened buds of the Camellia
Sinensis (green tea) plant, it is a powerful anti-oxidant.

Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A): Vitamin A is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity
and thickening of the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role
in RNA synthesis, known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation
to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the
skin and the body. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 113


Yeast Extract: a dietary source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex)
aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

Panthenol (Vitamin B): Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new


healthy tissues.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): helps increase collagen production &


diminish wrinkles.

Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of
enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant
and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments.
Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles
by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to
protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s
ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Disteardimonium Hectorite: an organically modified magnesium silicate and a


natural mineral

Magnesium PCA: Magnesium PCA is a white to off-white powder that is very


soluble in water/methanol. PCA occurs naturally in human skin as part of the natural
moisturizing factors (NMF) that maintain a healthy epidermis and whose concentration
decreases with age. It is used mainly in skin care products including gels, creams,
lotions and foundations. May also be used in natural cosmetics.

Copper PCA: A synthetic skin-conditioning agent composed of the copper salt of


PCA (Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid).

Zinc PCA: moisturizes the skin and regulates the skin’s sebum production, thereby
controlling excess oil production. Several research studies have shown that zinc is
effective for helping to treat acne and eczema.

Sodium Benzoate: soluble food grade preservative.

Potassium Sorbate: soluble food grade preservative.

Phenoxyethanol: an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.

LipSense Liquid Lip Color


The premier product for SeneGence is patented
LipSense Liquid Lip Color. LipSense is an amazing
departure from conventional lipsticks and lip colors
found on the market today.

LipSense comes in a wide variety of shades and textures: Frosts, Mattes, and Shimmers.
See the current Beauty Book for a texture description of each LipSense Lip Color shade and
color offering. LipSense lip colors are perfect to mix and match; LipSense is versatile in that
you can use LipSense shades to create a number of effects:

Highlighter Shades: LipSense Liquid Lip Color is also offered in illuminating shades
specifically designed to highlight any one of the LipSense colors. These colors create
versatility and drama when added to any shade or simply used alone they can be worn
separately or combined with any of our beautiful colors for a look that adds a luminescent
effect to all lips!

Mica Shades: Multi-dimensional colors that create depth for richness and texture.

120 Section VI: SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


Solid Pigment Shades: Color perfection for a solid shade expression of deeper, sheer, or
soft sheen.

LipSense is initially sold as a set, which includes LipSense Liquid Lip Color, a moisturizing
Gloss, and an Ooops! Remover. Users must have a remover in the event they need to
remove the product.

The Science Behind the Product


This unique product is waterproof and does not kiss off, smear off, rub off, or budge off!
And, just as important it does not dry out your lips. In fact, it restores the moisture content
of your lips when used properly. LipSense Liquid Lip Color can last anywhere between 4
and 18 hours.

LipSense is a non-wax liquid lip color that stays on your skin. LipSense provides a natural
shield from the sun. The proprietary formulations and color pigments in LipSense help create
a mechanical covering for the lips. That means the skin on your lips are protected from the
sun’s rays by the color pigments. That is just one of the reasons your lips become so smooth
and soft with consistent use of LipSense.

Cosmetic grade Denatured Alcohol is nothing close to Isopropyl Alcohol–or rubbing alcohol.
In fact, you need Denatured Alcohol to apply LipSense to lips, while rubbing alcohol instantly
removes LipSense from the skin. We do not recommend the use of rubbing alcohol on the
skin because it dries out the skin. LipSense is formulated with Denatured Alcohol because:
• It is thinner than water and suspends the tiny particles within the formula.
• It immediately evaporates from the skin upon the delivery of the technology to the
skin. (The “tingling” sensation felt on the lips, when some wearers first begin to
use the color, is the evaporation process of the Denatured Alcohol felt within the
dry cracks of the lips. This sensation disappears as lower layers of skin’s moisture
content are restored by the use of the moisturizing gloss.)

Tiny Particles: The particles that help the color pigments to molecularly bind to the skin
(see Ingredient listing). Over time, the particles begin to detach from the skin’s surface. The
rate at which this occurs varies tremendously and is based upon the pH-balance of each
person’s skin and the color they’ve chosen to wear for the day.

Color Pigments: Each tube of color has a varied formulation and mixture of color pigments
to arrive at a specific color. Some colors naturally last longer than others because of the
different body chemistry of each wearer, plus some colors are thicker or richer in color
pigmentations, while others are sheer and thinner.

Layering LipSense: Layering LipSense is a must due to the fact the color breaks down with
the pH balance of the skin.

1st layer: touches the skin’s pH and will begin to break down first and fastest.

2nd layer: protected from the bottom, away from the skin’s pH, by the first layer.

3rd layer: protects the second layer from the top down and prevents sheering of second
layer of color by keeping away friction, saliva, and the natural environment.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 121


The third layer breaks down just like the first layer, but from the top down. The second layer
is sandwiched between the first and third and is protected by both for the longest period
of use.

Mica: LipSense Lip Colors formulated with Micas do not tend to wear as long as the solid
matte shades of LipSense. Micas create shine and shimmer. They reflect light and are made
of particles that are larger than color pigments. Micas and may flick off the skin with regular
skin movements. Talking and scraping lip movements like drinking from a cup can facilitate
this process. You can assume up to an hour of less wear when wearing a Mica color.

Glossing: It is important to know the long-lasting properties of LipSense are enhanced by


any of the LipSense moisturizing glosses. The gloss products also help to keep the lips
moist and plump.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


LipSense Long-Lasting Liquid Lip Color is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are
a few key components:

Denatured Alcohol: used as a delivery system for the color technology; creates a
germ and bacteria-free environment.

Paeonia Suffruticosa Root (Tree Peony) Extract: a natural calming plum flower herb.

Hypericum Perforatum (St. John’s Wort) Extract: also known as St John’s Wort, a
natural herb used to elavate mood and treat depressions.

Tilia Cordata (Linden) Flower Extract: a natural flower extract rich in flavonoids and
a powerful anti-oxidant.

Isodonis Japonicus Extract: Fragrant plant extract that contains terpenes, shown
to have medicinal properties to soothe skin.

Mica: an earth mineral used to give products sparkle and shine.

Titanium Dioxide: an inert earth mineral used as a thickening ingredient and sunscreen
in cosmetics. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered to have
no risk of skin irritation.

Note: Just as important as what is in LipSense, is what is not! LipSense is formulated


with no wax, lead, or animal by-products.

Directions for Use


It is important to remember that most people are used to applying their lip color in a stick
form. When selling LipSense Liquid Lip Color, it is extremely important that you have taken
the time to properly demonstrate the product and instruct the customer on the proper
technique of applying a liquid color pigment.

122 Section VI: SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


Application of three layers of color is recommended for the greatest staying power. The
LipSense applicator connected to the lid of the LipSense cap of the tube has three features
for application:

Tip: Pointed to apply LipSense as a lip liner.

Longest Side: Used to apply LipSense to full lips.

Shorter Side: Used to apply LipSense to thin lips.

For best results, LipSense products must be applied to clean, dry lips. For a more defined,
finished look, use LinerSense before applying the lip color. LinerSense is our beautiful liquid
lip liner available in many colors that blend with all the LipSense color hues.

LipSense needs to be shaken horizontally prior to application.

LipSense is applied by using a layering technique. After placing color onto the wand,
begin your application at the corner of your mouth, (usually) using the longest length of the
applicator. Keep your lips apart, and follow the natural shape of your lips starting at the outer
corner of the mouth. With one continual stroke, apply one layer of color from one corner
to the other corner of the bottom lip, then one layer of color to the top lip. Apply the color,
moving the applicator in one continuous direction versus going back and forth like you
would with lipstick.

Let each layer set for a few seconds before proceeding to the next. It is not recommended
to apply more than three layers of color. When the application of the third layer of color is
complete and the color has set, apply one of the LipSense Moisturizing Glosses over the
final layer. Do not press lips together until the moisturizing gloss has been applied onto the
last layer of lip color. After applying the gloss, you may press your lips together to smooth
in the moisture rich gloss and enjoy the glorious look and feel of this long-lasting, advanced
color technology!

LipSense is removed by using Ooops! Color Remover or liquid Fooops SenseCosmetics


Color Remover.

LipSense Gloss
Moisturizing Glosses not only cover and protect naked
lips but also improve the longevity (staying power)
of LipSense Liquid Lip Color. It provides exceptional
protection from the elements and helps repair dry,
damaged, chapped and/or sensitive lips.

When selling this new color technology to the first-time buyer, you may want to initially
include a Glossy Gloss, Pearl Gloss, or Matte Gloss with the first time set; thus, color
transference will not occur.

The Science Behind the Product
Shea butter, a natural ingredient is used as the key ingredient for the many textures of
LipSense Glosses. The moisturizing properties are delivered to the delicate lip tissue while
the synthetic beeswax seals the moisture in and helps to prevent moisture loss throughout
the day.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


LipSense Glosses are made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): The scientific name for shea butter, considered
as a plant lipid. Lipids are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture
evaporation from the skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface. Lipids are
considered as a natural moisturizer.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the


activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
anti-oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin
ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating
wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage
and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the
sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Propylparaben: Has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties that help to prevent


mold in products. It is non-toxic and non-irritating to the skin.

Synthetic Beeswax: A highly refined thickening agent used for its emollient
properties that creates a coating over the lips to help seal in moisture.

Directions for Use


Apply any LipSense Gloss to lips after LipSense Liquid Lip Color has been applied.
Moisturizing gloss should be reapplied throughout the day at any time that the lips tend to
feel dry. Reapply as needed. Reapplying the gloss will also increase the staying power of
the lip color.

Apply to lips BEFORE BEDTIME TO PROTECT AND MOISTURIZE WHILE SLEEPING.

When used with LipSense Liquid Lip Color, LipSense Glosses are removed by using liquid
Fooops SenseCosmetics Color Remover.

wand and gently rub the applicator on the area you want to erase. Then, wipe it clean with
a tissue or cotton round. You may finish by reapplying your LipSense color in that area, if
you need to.

To completely remove color: Note, LipSense will be easier to remove if you have been
wearing your color for a few hours. First, take a tissue or cotton round wetted with warm
water, and wipe off any gloss you may have on. With your Ooops! wand, apply the product
generously all over lips. Let Ooops! sit on your lips, on top of the color, for about 30 seconds.
This gives the Ooops! formula time to help break down the color. With a tissue or cotton
round wetted with warm water, begin to wipe the Ooops! and the color off. Repeat as needed
to get every last bit of color removed. Finish by wiping lips clean with a damp cotton round.
After removing your color, you may choose to follow with moisturizing LipSense Gloss,

EyeSense
EyeSense® contains the same long-lasting properties of LipSense.
It is also waterproof and does not smear off, smudge, or rub off!

Please refer to the current SeneGence Beauty Book for selection offering.

The Science Behind the Product


The science behind EyeSense is essentially the same as the science behind LipSense Liquid
Lip Color with one difference…EyeSense last even longer on skin than LipSense! The reason
is that the long-lasting color technology applied to the face does not generally receive the
same amount of ‘assault’ movement as do the lips. In other words, generally there is no
physical movement or friction rubbing the color off other areas of the face from the top of
the product down to the skin layer like that inflicted upon the lips as lips move to and fro,
back and forth, and are in contact with saliva and other liquids.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


EyeSense is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:

130 Section VI: SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


Denatured Alcohol: used as a delivery system for the color technology; creates a
germ and bacteria-free environment.

PPG- 20 Methyl Glucose Ether: helps increase smoothness of application and


humectancy performance of product.

Dimethicone: silicone oil used as a skin protectant.

Hydroxyethylcellulose: a modified cellulose (chief constituent of the fiber of plants)


used as a binder, emulsion stabilizer and thickener.

Silica: used as a thickening agent in cosmetics.

Directions for Use


EyeSense is applied with a sable brush for complete control.

Shake first. Before applying to the eyes, gently blow onto the color on the brush for
approximately three to five seconds. This aids in the evaporation of the liquid ingredient and
allows for quick drying. Begin to apply the color, starting at the inside corner of the eye; with
one continual stroke, line in one direction. On lower lashes–place brush on skin underneath
the eyelashes and move the color towards the hairline. Repeat this process for the top eyelid
with brush touching skin just above base of lash line.

If you desire a fine line, lightly touch the brush to the skin around the eye. For a thicker more
defined look, press firmly.

EyeSense shades are removed by using liquid Fooops SenseCosmetics Color Remover.

BrowSense
The BrowSense® delivery system is unique and

and is considered to have no risk of skin irritation.

Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of
enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant
and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments.
Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles
by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to
protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s
ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract: made-up of many components, including


flavonoids, Silicic Acid, cartonoids and essential oils. The extract from this plant
serves as a fungicide and as an immune-stimulant. Medically, Arnica is used externally
as an application for bruises, sprains, stings or wounds. Also used after traumatic
injuries. In body care Arnica provides a layer of warmth and helps to soothe tired and
tight muscles.

Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract: Protects collagen from being broken
down. Studies have shown it also works to reduce UV induced inflammations.

Directions for Use


Put a small amount into the palm of your hand or onto a cotton pad and then spread over
your entire moistened face. Let it set about 20 seconds before removing with a warm, wet
washcloth. Your skin is now ready for deep cleaning with SeneDerm 3-in-1 Cleanser.

138 Section VI: SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


SenseCosmetics Brush Cleaner
SenseCosmetics Brush Cleaner contains a mix of scientific and naturally cleansing
ingredients to thoroughly clean your artistry tools. It’s safe to use on synthetic or
natural hair bristle brushes, and contains conditioning ingredients to help keep
brushes soft and supple.

The Science Behind the Product


45% of people never clean their makeup brushes. You wash your face daily.
But if you’re cleansing and moisturizing only to follow up with a sticky, oil laden
brush, you’re brushing dirt and grime right back on your face. You can protect
your beautiful skin and preserve your artistry tools by washing your makeup brushes
regularly. SenseCosmetics Brush Cleaner contains a mix of scientific and naturally cleansing
ingredients. And, it’s safe to use on synthetic or natural hair bristle brushes.

5 reasons to clean your brushes at least once every week:


1. Dirty brushes cause breakouts and irritation due to bacteria, oil and dirt
accumulated on them.
2. Dirty brushes negatively affect color payoff of your SenseCosmetics.
3. Dirty brushes do not allow product to be well-blended or applied with precision.
4. Cleaning your brushes keeps them in good shape and prolongs their life - which
protects your investment.
5. Dirty brushes can cross contaminate your products and cause them to spoil.

Directions for Use


Squeeze small amount of Brush Cleaner directly into a clean cup. Swirl brush around in
cleaner for 20 seconds (or longer if needed). Remove brush and rinse well until water runs
clean. Lay brush flat on a clean towel to dry.

Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare

SeneDerm with SenePlex BodyCare


The BodyCare line is made up of a proprietary blend of botanicals including SenePlex
Complex. Simple to use simply:
• Body Wash to cleanse without drying skin.
• Body Scrub to exfoliate while delivering rich oils.
• Advanced Hydration Body Lotion & Hand Cream with Shea Butter to moisturize
and protect.
• Shea Butter Body Cream
• Detoxifying & Moisturizing Mask

The skin on your body is thicker than that on your face and needs richer, more intense
moisturizer, as well as denser exfoliants. From head to toe, the SeneDerm with SenePlex
BodyCare System will help make skin on your body beautiful and will give you the radiant
skin you’ve always wanted.

Body Scrub
Exfoliating the skin on your body is important to keep skin smooth and healthy
because it allows for better moisture absorption. SeneDerm with SenePlex
Body Scrub will help make skin on your body beautiful and provide you with
the ability to soften and smooth the thickest parts of your skin through the
applications of a natural oil complex, as well as help exfoliate more difficult
areas of the skin’s surface such as the bottoms of your feet, elbows and hands.
It can also be used gently on your face, but great care must be used not to
apply the product with too much pressure from your fingertips. When used on
your face, a follow-up cleansing can be done with SeneDerm 3-in-1 Cleanser
if you wish to reduce the residual feeling that the extra emollients provide.

SeneDerm Body Scrub is gentle, yet highly effective and is made for all skin types.

The Science Behind the Product


As dead skin cells are constantly rising to the surface layer, so too should your desire be
to exfoliate and remove them. Exfoliation helps to speed up the process of skin flaking
and shedding, by taking off the uppermost, dead layer of cells to expose the finer, more
translucent tissue underneath.

140 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


Volcanic Ash, one of our exfoliating ingredients, is collected from the island of Vanuatu. It
is one of the nucleus components of our cleanser product line. This volcanic ash has the
amazing ability to attract impurities; particularly impurities related to cigarette smoking. As
well, the girth of the volcanic particle helps to remove from the surface of the skin, unwanted,
dry, dead cells.

The volcanic ash is crushed into a granular form of varying degrees of fine powder and
particles depending upon which product you are using. Volcanic ash in fine powder form has
the ability to absorb oil or water in much greater masses than the weight of the powder itself.
Meaning, that 1 pound of powdered ash could probably absorb 2 pounds of oil (helping to
remove surface cells and impurities).

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Here is a partial list of some of the ingredients in the SeneDerm Body Scrub:

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Volcanic Ash: from Vanuatu, nature’s natural exfoliate. Gently exfoliates and polishes
the skin while delivering minerals, stimulating circulation to produce a healthy glow
to the skin. Sometimes used to thicken a formulation.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): The scientific name for shea butter, considered
as a plant lipid. Lipids are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture
evaporation from the skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface. Lipids are
considered as a natural moisturizer.

Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter: from a cocoa bean; used as a fragrance
ingredient, occlusive skin-conditioning agent, skin protectant, and emollient.

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: used to treat a wide variety of skin problems including
bruises, burns, rash, scabies, skin infections, and wounds.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera): most known for moisturizing, soothing,
and healing. Recent studies indicate that Aloe Vera gel has the ability to enhance
and accelerate cellular growth.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the
skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and
enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Cymbidium Grandiflorum (Orchid) Flower Extract: a plant native to the South


Pacific, which has long been a source of excellence for the preparation of emollient
products. This powerful anti-oxidant provides free radical protection and maximum
moisturization. The orchid extract is very effective as a sunscreen.

Glyceryl Stearate: derived from palm kernel or soy oil; an emulsifier that assists in
forming neutral, stable emulsions. It is also a solvent, humectant, and consistency
regulator in water-in-oil and oil-in-water formulations.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 141


Retinyl Palmitate: It is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of
the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in RNA synthesis,
known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger,
plumper skin cells. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

Tocopheryl (and Tocopheryl Acetate): Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the


activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an
anti-oxidant and has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin
ailments. Vitamin E is a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating
wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage
and to protect the skin against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the
sun’s ultraviolet rays once absorbed into the skin.

Yeast Extract: a dietary source of folic acid (a member of the vitamin B complex)
aids in formation of new healthy tissues and promotes new cell formation.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the


extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant
than Glycerin.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Mineral Oil: helps maintain skin’s moisture content.

PEG-100 Stearate: serves as an emulsifier with soothing effects on the skin.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: a surfactant used for the removal of oily residues.

Phenoxyethanol: an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.

Butylparaben: anti-fungal and suspension fluid.

Directions for Use


Use SeneDerm with SenePlex Body Scrub on cleansed, damp skin. Refresh your skin in the
shower or bath two to three times a week. Squeeze a small amount into the palm of your
hand and gently rub onto your body. Rest your thumb against your skin (this ensures that
you don’t use the full power of your arm) and use very light, circular movements. Pay extra
attention to rough patches on heels, elbows and knees. Do not use exfoliating products near
your eyes and do not rub skin so hard it changes color.

142 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


Body Wash
The SeneDerm with SenePlex Body Wash is a gentle but rich, cleansing
foaming gel that moisturizes the entire body. While traditional soaps can dry
and crack the skin, the Body Wash conditions and restores pH balance.

The Science Behind the Product


Gentle but thorough cleansing lets you wash frequently without over drying
or stripping. SeneDerm Body Wash is made of an Aloe Vera juice base for
soothing skin and a molecule that has, on one end, an oil molecule to attract
and bind to the oil base impurities. The other end of the same molecule is a liquid molecule
to mix and bind to water. Once applied, the molecule binds to impurities with one end and
water lifts (water attracts water) and washes away the entire cleansing molecule removing
the oil based impurities that attached to one end of the molecule; in doing so, SeneDerm
Body Wash cleanses without using harsh detergents.

Because of the amount and quality of humectants in the Body Wash, it will moisturize your
skin, even if you forget to! That is why your skin does not feel tight and dry after you towel off.

The Body Wash formulation is highly concentrated and is formulated to be ‘aerated’.


Meaning: when you apply just a dollop of product onto a wet Body Poof, the water and air
held within the Body Poof expands the product. Truly – just ‘a-dab-will-do-you’ and your
entire body surface!

Key Ingredients and Benefits


SeneDerm with SenePlex Body Wash is made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a

lavish texture and aromatherapy (makes a great shaving lotion or bubble bath).

Advanced Hydration Body Lotion


Introducing the world’s finest skin care for your body, true “Beauty for the
Body.” SeneDerm Advanced Hydration Body Lotion delivers the same anti-
aging and moisturizing benefits to the skin on your body as SeneDerm
Anti-Aging SkinCare delivers to facial skin for a more beautiful complexion.
SeneDerm Advanced Hydration Body Lotion is a rich, non-sticky cream that
delivers intense, advanced moisturization and anti-aging benefits. With just a
touch of a gentle scent from natural oils, this lotion firms and brings vibrancy
to your body’s skin, which is exposed to daily environmental stresses.

144 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


The Science Behind the Product
SeneDerm Advanced Hydration Body Lotion offers intense moisturization from concentrated
Sodium Hyaluronate (HA), and the benefits of exotic French Plum Oil blended with SenePlex
+. Additionally, this advanced formulation helps to keep the skin on the body vibrant, firm,
and supple with a unique combination of natural extracts.

Loaded with HA, which is a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the extracellular
matrix, this lotion offers unparalleled moisture deliverance to the skin of the body. HA is a
humectant about 100 times more effective than Glycerin. It is the key water-maintaining
substance in human skin. Harsh living environments and aging can cause the decrease of
HA content in skin, and as a result, the water maintaining ability of the skin is weakened
causing the skin to look dry and rough. One of the main causes of skin senility is also the
decrease of polysaccharides, such as HA.

The special structure characteristic of HA makes it highly moisturizing and act as a water
content regulator. Furthermore, its solution has high viscoelasticity and lubricity. Sodium
Hyaluronate holds more water than any other molecule in the body and is necessary to
keep collagen hydrated and youthful. Hyaluronate supports the structure of connective
tissue by acting as a water magnet to maintain extracellular fluidity. HA forms a viscous
fluid with exceptional lubricating properties necessary for the vital functions of many parts
of the human body including the skin, heart valves, aqueous/ vitreous humor of the eye and
synovial fluid (joint lubricant). The skin contains over 50% of the body’s HA. Considering that
skin is over 70% water and renews itself more readily than most other bodily tissues, HA
is absolutely vital for its structure and daily maintenance. It’s constantly involved in cellular
renewal and repair because of daily exposure to solar radiation, pressure, heat, trauma and
wound healing.

The moisture evaporation rate constant of Sodium Hyaluronate is less than that of other
moisturizers. This indicates that it possesses strong water retention properties. When HA
solution is applied on the surface of skin, it can form an air permeable layer and keep the
skin moist and smooth. The small molecular weight of HA can penetrate into the dermis
layer, fully combine with water, promote skin blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption,
and maintain normal metabolism. As a result, it plays a role in wrinkle removal and improving
the health of the skin.

The unique blend of natural oils in the formulation help to strengthen and maintain the
integrity and firmness of skin exposed to the harshness and toxins of the atmosphere.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Key Ingredients and Benefits SeneDerm Advanced Hydrating Body Lotion is made of a
combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:

Sodium Hyaluronate: one of the most powerful moisturizers and humectants known,
it provides smoothness and softening to the skin, excellent anti-wrinkle effects,
promotes growth of new skin cells after peelings, and supports wound healing.

Prunus Domestica (French Plum) Seed Oil: also known as Prune Kernel Oil, it is
gaining worldwide attention for its nutritive role both within cosmeceutical and skin

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 145


care applications. French Plum Oil demonstrates the dramatic ability to nourish,
moisturize and improve skin elasticity. It has a light texture, quick absorption and
delicate fruity/almond-like aroma that naturally adds a slight touch of scent to high
end formulations. French Plum Oil can be effective in treating dry and cracked skin,
eczema, psoriasis, acne and sunburned skin. It is the perfect choice for inclusion in
formulations for revitalizing maturing skin.

Bambusa Vulgaris Extract (Golden Bamboo): the richest source of natural Silica,
containing over 70% organic Silica. Silica is lost in the skin as we age. Silica
stimulates chondroblasts providing strength and resilience to collagen and elastin. It
may protect the skin against bacteria and fungus, helping avoid various skin troubles,
and also contains abundant antioxidants and vitamins. It is a rich source of flavone,
phenolic acid, lactone, and polyose.

Pisum Sativum (Pea) Extract: keeps specific enzymes known as proteases from
degrading skin proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are responsible for
giving skin its firmness and elasticity. It can therefore protect collagen and elastin
against the damaging effects of proteases activated by aging and through different
types of skin abuse (UV, chemical, immunological, etc.). Used in skin care products,
pea extract acts as an anti-enzyme complex and gives the skin its firmness and
elasticity. A clinical study has demonstrated significant improvement in skin elasticity
(+16.7%) after just three weeks of treatment with pea extract.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter: Shea Butter is considered a plant lipid. Lipids
are the oil and fat components of skin that prevent moisture evaporation from the
skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface. Lipids are considered a natural
moisturizer. In addition to moisturization, this natural cream is often used to treat
many skin problems, including blemishes, wrinkles, itching, sunburns, small skin
wounds, eczema, skin allergies, insect bites, frost bite, and other skin conditions.

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: acts as a moisturizer and emollient


agent to improve the skin elasticity and suppleness. It contains natural Tocopherol
to minimize oxidation and lipid peroxidation. Jojoba Oil has many dermatological
benefits when used topically, including reducing skin inflammation and fighting acne.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A): fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and
thickening of the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin A plays an important role in
RNA synthesis, known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation
to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the
skin and the body. This process of cell renewal and exfoliation helps to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin irregularities. Medical studies indicate
that Vitamin A is effective in slowing down skin aging and in reducing the number
and depth of wrinkles. A regression of pigmented spots has been demonstrated in
medical studies with regular use of Vitamin A.

DL Panthenol (Vitamin B): essential for formation of new healthy tissues.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): stabilized time-released Vitamin C; helps


increase collagen production & diminish wrinkles.

function of skin cells and protecting them against the damaging effects of the sun.
White tea extract is prepared from the unopened buds of the camellia sinensis (green
tea) plant; it is a powerful anti-oxidant.

Magnesium PCA: occurs naturally in human skin as part of the natural moisturizing
factors (NMF) that maintain a healthy epidermis and whose concentration decreases
with age. It is used mainly in skin care products including gels, creams, lotions and
foundations.

Zinc PCA: moisturizes the skin and regulates the skin’s sebum production, thereby
controlling excess oil production. Several research studies have shown that zinc is
effective for helping to treat acne and eczema.

Hand Cream with Shea Butter
SeneDerm with SenePlex Hand Cream is the perfect no mess, no-fuss size for
the ultimate skin care on the go. Purse size Hand Cream with Shea Butter is
formulated with extra rich shea butter that doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on the
skin. A little hand cream lasts a long time throughout the day as it ‘reactivates’
with water and rubbing. Just apply in the morning and when washing the palm
of hands, simply wet the skin on top of hands and rub, redistributing the cream
without reapplying.

The Science Behind the Product


Hands typically seem to be much dryer than the rest of skin on the body because hands
are usually more often exposed to water, cold, heat and extreme elements such as sunlight.
Even the simple task of handling paper draws moisture from skin. Our hands require more
moisturizing care by adding moisture and, just as important, covering the skin with a
protective coating that helps to ‘seal in’ the moisture when applied.

Hand Cream with Shea Butter is packed with moisturizers and natural lubricants to help
soothe skin, as well as botanicals that help protect hands from sun exposure. These
botanicals actually help to eliminate sun spots. Lastly, it contains plant extracts that protect

SeneDerm Self-Tanning Bronzing Coconut


Milk
Spritz on your freshly-back-from-the-beach healthy glow with SeneDerm Self-
Tanning Bronzing Coconut Milk. Year round, you can look as though you spent
all day basking in the sun, without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays.

Sunless tans are beneficial because:


• They are completely safe- no laying in the sun and exposing your skin
to UV damage.
• They take less time than a real tan.
• You can spritz on specific areas or you can get a sunless tan all over.
• Your entire body can receive the anti-aging benefits of SenePlex
Complex, while you self-tan.
• Regardless of the climate or season, you can be gorgeously golden.

The Science Behind the Product


Please refer to Important Scientific Information about Sunless Tanners in this section of the
manual. Your skin will love the instant tan, without the distress caused by harsh rays of the
sun. The tanning ingredients in Self-Tanning Bronzing Coconut Milk are:

DHA (Dihydroxyacetone)

The DHA that we use in our Bronzing Coconut Milk is derived from environmentally-friendly
plant sources. It provides a water-resistant, long-lasting tan. DHA reacts with the proteins of
your cells which, in turn, darkens the shade of the cell.

Benefits of DHA:

Natural and water resistant: the tan gradually fades as the dead cells of the horny
layer flake off.

Fast and long lasting: the color change is visible within a few hours and lasts over
3-7 days. Repeated applications every 2 to 3 days maintain the intensity of the tan.

Light/medium/Dark: Control your tanning shade: skin coloration is proportional to


the number of applications and concentration of DHA.

156 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


Erythrulose

Erythrulose is a natural keto-sugar which reacts with free primary or second amino groups
in the upper layers of the epidermis. This reaction produces a color comparable to the
appearance of a natural sun tan. Erythrulose produces a less intense, but longer lasting tan
than DHA. This is why the combination of Erythrulose and DHA is ideal in a self-tanning
product. This ingredient also helps to overcome known disadvantages of self-tanning, such
as streaking and skin drying. When combined with DHA, Erythrulose leads to a more reliable
and pleasing self-tanning experience.

When combined with DHA, Erythrulose produces a longer-lasting tan than just DHA on its
own.

Algotan (Water & Hydrolyzed Algin & Magnesium Sulfate & Manganese Sulfate)

Algotan is a blend of ingredients that induce tanning without UV. At the same time, Algotan
protects cells against UV damage and helps protect the skin’s immunity against UV.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 157


Usually UV triggers the production of endothelin, a messenger promoting melanin
production. Algotan acts like endothelin without the need for UV.

Endothelin activates tyrosinase, which ultimately increases melanin production.

158 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


At 0.04% Algotan protects the DNA against UV alteration.

Moisturizer (face or body) to avoid uneven color. Let skin dry completely before dressing.
Wash hands immediately after application. Re-apply several times a week to maintain color.

Important Scientific Information about Sunless Tanners


There are approximately 5.4 million new cases of skin cancer diagnosed yearly. Ultraviolet
(UV) radiation is damaging, there is no mistaking it. Fortunately for the sun worshippers
among us who want to remain tan-looking while avoiding harmful UV rays, the American
Academy of Dermatology recommends self-tanning lotions as a safe alternative to the
real thing.

Skin Protection is a Must


The most important thing to remember when tanning with self-tanners is that the tan does
not adequately protect your skin against the sun. Although Bronzing Coconut Milk does
contain the ingredient Algotan for some sun protection, there is no SPF protection claim
for this product. When using self- tanning products, be sure to continue use of the same
amount of SeneSun SPF 30 SunScreen used as if there were no tan at all.

DHA
Self-Tanning Bronzing Coconut Milk contains Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). According to the
American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective self-tanning products contain
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. The tan is a chemical reaction between
the DHA and the amino acids and proteins in the outer layer on the skin surface. It is not a
dye, stain or paint. The reaction is non-toxic and skin safe, without the damage associated

162 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


with UV exposure. The tan is temporary and will fade gradually over 3 to 10 days if you do
not continue to apply the product.

Skin Sensitivity
Some people may be sensitive or allergic to this DHA ingredient. Try a test run with a dab on
a small section of skin before covering the entire body. If there seems to be an uncomfortable
reaction, discontinue use at once.

Water Exposure
Although Self-Tanning Bronzing Coconut Milk is water-resistant, long exposure to water,
with or without chlorine, will fade a sunless tan; outer skin cells soak up water, and dilute
the tanning effect. The longer skin is exposed to water, the faster skin will fade. Using the
product regularly over a period of time will saturate the coloring of the skin better with the
coloring ingredient affecting maximum layers of skin’s protein layer, and the sunless tan will
last longer in water.

The Shade of Scarring


The color of scars will be affected by the coloring of the sunless tan, but still the end affect
is a bit unpredictable. Mostly, scars darken very little or not at all. Please note that stretch
marks are scars! Stretch marks that are a few years old will be disguised by sunless tanners;
new ones may not absorb the product and may look more prominent (if this gets you down,
keep in mind that stretch marks and scars don’t tan in the sun, either). Freckles and moles
will also darken along with the rest of skin. In fact, some colorless moles may become
significantly darker.

Caution if Pregnant
If you’re pregnant or nursing, experts recommend checking with your physician before
applying a sunless tanner. According to the American Pregnancy Association, DHA is
considered safe for pregnant woman. However, their editors also say, “The only concern
is whether the active ingredient, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), is able to penetrate the skin.
Studies do not confirm that it can, but some health care providers encourage women to wait
until after the first trimester, just to play it safe.”

SeneDerm® SeneSun SPF 30 SunScreen
(Available in the U.S. only)
SeneSun SunScreen SPF 30 is an effective spritz-on sunscreen that is light
and non-sticky. Unlike other sunscreens, SeneSun SunScreen is barely
noticeable when applied as it does not feel thick, oily, or muddy. You know
what we mean… other sunscreens seem as though they make you even
hotter in the sun – like you applied a thick smothering blanket layer across the
surface of your skin. Protect yourself while making your skin more beautiful
with SenePlex Complex. SeneSun SunScreen SPF 30 is oil-free, and you
barely know it’s there.

The Science Behind the Product


The sun’s rays make us feel good, and even provide our skin an important vitamin, Vitamin
D. However, the rays of the sun also can cause major damage to our skin. UV ray exposure
and sunburn are a leading cause in premature signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles, age
spots and discoloration.

We often think of good health in conjunction with glowing skin, but a glowing, bronzed color
that is obtained from the sun or from tanning beds can accelerate the effects of aging, and
even lead to serious skin health issues, such as skin cancer.

Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging.
Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When
these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into
place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily -- taking longer to heal.
What you are left with is fine lines and wrinkles, instead of plump, hydrated skin.

It is crucial to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays everyday- whether it is clear and
sunny outside, or cloudy. Even on a cloudy or overcast day, up to 80% of the sun’s UV
rays can pass through the clouds! Additionally, UV rays can pass through glass, so it is
important to protect your skin indoors as well. Sitting next to a window, or driving in a car,
harmful rays can hit your skin. It just makes sense to add sunscreen to a part of your daily
morning routine.

Protect your skin with SeneSun SunScreen, which provides SPF 30 protection. Not only
will it protect your skin from harmful UV rays, but it also provides another layer of anti-aging
protection with SenePlex Complex.

Besides the inclusion of advanced anti-aging ingredients, SeneSun SPF 30 SunScreen is


also unique because it is oil-free, and does not feel sticky or heavy on the skin. Children
don’t mind having SeneSun SunScreen applied because it sprays on easily and does not
feel heavy. Men and women love it because they do not have to worry about the sunscreen
transferring to or damaging clothes.

Protect your precious skin from the sun and deter the signs of aging with effective SeneSun
SPF 30 SunScreen.

The Science Behind the Product

Forms of Fragrance

Parfum
Parfum is the strongest concentrated form of fragrance. It provides a pure scent experience
and lasts many hours, or all day, after being applied. As such, this form of fragrance is the
most valuable and sought after in the marketplace. Women’s fine fragrances are traditionally
manufactured as Eau de Parfum or Eau de Toilette strength. Parfums should be applied at
the pulse points (neck, wrists, behind ears, etc.). The heat of the body at these points will
assure a well-balanced fragrance application.

Eau de Parfum
Eau de Parfum is found in many of the fine fragrance collections; it assures a long-lasting
application, although it is not as concentrated or as long-lasting as Parfum. It should be
smoothed or sprayed, just before dressing, all over the body from the feet up.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 167


Eau de Toilette
Eau de Toilette is a much more diluted form of Parfum and even Eau de Parfum. Eau de
Toilette should be used as the base upon which to lay a foundation of scent, and is so
diluted that you can spray several times all over your body within the same day and not
gather too much fragrance on your skin and clothing. The majority of fragrances sold in
mass distribution markets are Eau de Toilettes.

Cologne
Cologne is diluted even further in strength compared to Eau de Toilette. Cologne is the
lightest form of fragrance. Cologne is made for splashing liberally all over the body. It is the
perfect solution to use as a refreshing touch-up throughout the day. It does not provide a
long-lasting fragrance application.

Fragrance Classifications
Fragrances can be classified into several families by the themes of the fragrances. Here are
just a few:

Floral: fragrances that are dominated by the scent of one or more types of flowers.

Fresh/Green: light, fresh character of botanical or citrus notes often combined with
more feminine scents (flowers and fruits).

Fruity: An old fragrance family that until recently consisted mainly of “freshening” eau
de colognes due to the low tenacity of fruit scents. Development of newer fragrance
compounds has allowed for the creation of fruit-forward fragrances.

Chypre: fragrances made of sandalwood, bergamot, oak, patchouli and labdanum.

Orientals or Ambers: a large fragrance class featuring the scents of vanilla and
animal scents together with flowers and woods. Scents bring to mind images of the
Far East.

Gourmand: scents with “edible” or “dessert”-like qualities. These often contain


notes like vanilla and tonka bean, as well as synthetic components designed to
resemble food flavors.

The Making of Parfum


Perfume is made from about 78% to 95% of specially denatured ethyl alcohol and a mixture
of fragrant essential oils and aromatic compounds used to give a pleasant smell. The amount
and type of oils and compounds dictate what strength category in which it is identified.

168 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


Aromatic Compounds
• Parfum: 20%-40% aromatic compounds.
• Eau de Parfum: 10-30% aromatic compounds.
• Eau de Toilette: 5-20% aromatic compounds.
• Eau de Cologne: 2-3% aromatic compounds.

Essential Oils
• Parfum: 20- 40% essential oils (most expensive form of fragrance).
• Eau de Parfum: 10 to 20% essential oils.
• Eau de Toilette: 5 to 15 % essential oils.
• Eau de Cologne: 3 to 8% essential oils (least expensive form of fragrance).

For those who crave super subtlety, Eau de Fraiche (or body splash), with 1 to 3% essential
oils, is the lightest dilution of fragrance.

Structure of a Scent
Fragrance notes are used to describe the various scents within a fragrance. Fragrance
develops at different stages based on the notes. Here is a summary of the 3 different notes.

Top Note: creates scents that form a person’s initial impression of a perfume. The top note
provides the “Wow” factor of a fragrance, as it can be somewhat bold. The aromas that
contribute to top notes evaporate quickly. Top notes last for 5-30 minutes after application.

Middle Note (Heart Note): emerges as the top note fades. The middle note imparts the true
personality and character of the fragrance. Scents from this note stage become evident
anywhere from 2 minutes to 1 hour after the application of a perfume. Middle notes last
several hours after top notes dissipate.

Base/Bottom Note: tenaciously holds the entire fragrance until the previous impression/note
disappears. The compounds of this layer are usually not identified until up to 30 minutes
after the application of the perfume, and can last up to 24 hours after middle notes dissipate.

Abundance Parfums
On the surface, fragrance seems simple: a scented liquid that you spritz onto your skin with
the simple, straight-forward goal of ‘smelling good’. Yet, scent conjures potent reactions
and memories. Fragrance is invisible, yet all-powerful and may arouse a spectrum of moods.

The right fragrance can make you FEEL alluring, confident, and comfortable, but how often
has the right fragrance made you LOOK that way too?

Abundance Fresh Parfum is a Fresh/Green fragrance that has refreshing scent notes,
including:

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 169


Top Note: light, sparkling and quickly evaporates.
• Mandarin Oil
• Lemon Oil
• Petitgrain

Middle Note: soft floral heart lasts hours.


• Orange Blossom
• Osmanthus
• Dewy Freesia

Bottom Note: deepens in intensity throughout the day.


• Patchouli
• Driftwood
• Ozonic Musk

Abundance Fresh unfolds as a tranquil wave filled with dewy orange blossom, sweet
osmanthus and blue freesia buds float towards a wedge of salted driftwood.

Abundance Lush Parfum is a Fruity/Floral fragrance with exotic and luxurious scent notes,
including:

Top Note: smooth, fruity and quickly evaporates.


• Orange Oil
• Passionfruit
• Coconut Milk

Middle Note: exotic floral heart lasts hours.


• Carambola
• Pikake Jasmine
• Tiare Petals

Bottom Note: deepens in intensity throughout the day.


• Soft Hibiscus
• Vanilla Orchid
• Tropical Musk

Abundance Lush is inspired by an exotic paradise where luscious notes of juicy passion
fruit, coconut milk and exotic carambola billow from a colorful bouquet of tropical jasmine,
hibiscus and vanilla flowers.

Abundance Bloom Parfum is a Floral fragrance with feminine, warm notes of blooms and
fruit, including:

Top Note: light, sweet and quickly evaporates.

170 Section VII: SeneDerm BodyCare


• Blood Orange
• Lush Pear
• Sweet Quince

Middle Note: enveloping floral heart lasts hours.


• Blushing Freesia
• Rose Bloom
• Patchouli

Bottom Note: deepens in intensity throughout the day.


• Rhubarb
• Glowing Amber
• Light Musk

Abundance Bloom is sweet and delicate with a touch of intrigue; this beautiful mélange
of lush pears, blooming freesias and pink rose petals dance under an alluring cloud of
mysterious patchouli, glowing amber and light musk.

As Abundance Parfums “mature” on your skin, the scents grow richer and more memorable.
By including SenePlex Complex, your skin improves as well. You’ll experience the anti-aging
benefits of SenePlex while creating a lasting fragrance impression.

Always wait for the true scent/aroma of the Parfum to emerge after it is applied. This may
take 5-10 minutes. Do not judge it immediately after it is applied. Fragrances can smell
different on different people as the oils combine with everyone in a slightly different way.

Keep your bottle of Abundance away from direct heat and out of sunlight to maintain its
beautiful color tint.

Key Ingredients and Benefits


Abundance Parfums are made of a combination of ingredients. Here are a few key components:

SenePlex Complex: Kinetic enzyme that increases cellular renewal.

Essential Parfum Oils- the finest and purest oils sourced for each fragrance. Read
about each fragrance note above.

Glucosamine HCI: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Algae Extract: hydrates, protects skin from the sun, and softens the skin. It is
essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances
the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract: a skin-conditioning agent used in cosmetics


and beauty care products because of its ability to act in oxidative stress and improve
skin conditions.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 171


Panthenol: Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new healthy tissues.

Tocopheryl Acetate: Vitamin E, essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes


in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells, is also an anti-oxidant and has
been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments. Vitamin E is
a dynamic weapon against premature aging and combating wrinkles by neutralizing
free radicals to stop the chain reaction of molecular damage and to protect the skin
against oxidation. It’s also believed to protect skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays
once absorbed into the skin.

Synthetic Urea: a compound topical antiseptic, buffering agent, humectant, and


skin conditioner.

Denatured Alcohol: used as a delivery system; creates a germ and bacteria-


free environment.

Directions for Use


Mist fragrance on insides of wrists, neck, and décolletage for beautiful, long-lasting scent.
Repeat throughout the day as needed. Make sure you do not rub wrists together, as this
crushes the scent layers.

Section VIII: Product Claims &
Ingredients

From time-to-time, you may find it necessary to validate our product claims. You may offer
copies of our Independent Clinical Test Results (found in this manual) and the following
official SeneGence statement regarding the validity of our product claims to any person who
questions our product.

Product Claims
SeneGence Stands Behind its Product Claims – 100%
We believe everybody is entitled to his/her own opinion.  But from our standpoint at
SeneGence International, we believe actual independent laboratory clinical test results
are far more significant than personal opinions; particularly since those opinions may be
based primarily on an unsubstantiated analysis of the ingredients/content of the products
taken out of context as opposed to scientific test results on actual people and scientific
measurement procedures.

Clinical Test Results


The primary component of the SeneDerm SkinCare system, SeneDerm Evening Moisturizer
Normal-to-Dry with SenePlex Complex, was tested by an Independent Testing Laboratory that
was NOT on the payroll of SeneGence International, nor the formulator, nor the manufacturer
of the product.  The Independent Laboratory Testing and Clinical Studies occurred over
an eight (8) week test period study with a study group of twenty (20) female test subjects
varying in age from 18 to 55 years old, with differing skin types from dry skin to normal skin
to oily skin.

The published test results of the Independent Testing Lab confirmed the preliminary findings
of the formulator, but more importantly, the Independent Testing Laboratory was able to
quantify the actual test numbers and clinical findings.  Those published results of the
Independent Testing Lab showed that in ALL THE AREAS TESTED, ALL TEST SUBJECTS
SHOWED SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS. The clinical conclusions in this study provided
results showing that the SeneDerm SkinCare product used in the tests was highly effective
in increasing cellular renewal.

Additional results proved that the SeneGence product substantially improved the skin’s
qualitative appearance across six important aesthetic measurements; improving skin
moisturization, skin firmness and elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, increasing
luminosity and clarity, and increasing skin thickness. The overall reduction of fine lines
and wrinkles was 55.7 %; the test subject with the least improvement was 46 % fewer

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 173


wrinkles and the subject with the greatest improvement had 60.8 % fewer wrinkles and fine
lines. SenePlex Complex is the key ingredient to every crème SenseCosmetics and each
SeneDerm SkinCare product. In essence, SeneGence products and skin care regimen are
formulated to not only make a demonstrable improvement in the appearance of your skin,
but to also clinically improve its health by promoting increased cell renewal. And, according
to scientific testing – IT WORKS!

Protection from Sun


Furthermore, if potential consumers were properly informed, all would learn when using the
SenseCosmetics & SeneDerm SkinCare system their skin is protected from harmful rays
from the sun without the use of unnecessary chemicals ... A claim which is also substantiated
with independent laboratory tests. We think that is REMARKABLE!!  This and many other
reasons is why we know these products are truly revolutionary ... AND THEY REALLY WORK,
SUBSTANTIATED BY Independent Lab testing!

Published Results
We believe in our products so much that we publish for today’s discriminating consumer the
actual Independent Laboratory test results in our SeneGence Beauty Books and promise to
all customers this unconditional money back guarantee ... try our products for an eight (8)
week period just like the test subjects did.  If at the end of that period you are unsatisfied
with the products, our SeneGence Distributor from whom you purchased the products will
either exchange the products for you or give you a refund of the purchase price (minus a
10% restocking fee), provided that you return the unused portion of the products.

Color Technology
When selling and demonstrating SeneGence products, it is important to remember that the
long-lasting capability of the products will ultimately depend on who is using the products
and how they are applying the products.

Depending upon an individual’s body chemistry, LipSense liquid lip color typically lasts
anywhere from 4 to 18 hours. EyeSense, BrowSense, and LashSense also have the same
longevity. Some medications can affect the long-lasting capability of the products.

SeneDerm Solutions Products


SeneDerm Solution products are substantiated with laboratory and clinical test results
whenever possible. While the testing facilities, testing methods, and verification and
confirmation methods are varied with each product the journey of learning how the many
ingredients work with, in, and through skin is fascinating. However, there is one thing you
can count on to remain consistent throughout the entire product line and that is the end
result will always be the same – the product claim is true…as each product really works!

Mix & Match

Finding the Right MakeSense Foundation Shade

192 Section IX – Product Tips


To choose the perfect all-around MakeSense Foundation shade, apply a small sample of the
shade to the jaw line of your face between the ear and chin. If it is the correct shade it should
disappear and blend perfectly. If makeup can be seen, it’s the wrong color. Does it look too
yellow? Try a cooler shade. If it looks too pinkish, go for a warmer tone.

Pearlizer
Glow
Mix Pearlizer with any shade of MakeSense Foundation to create a glowing natural look.

BrowSense Kit
Famous Beverly Hills brow aesthetician, Anastasia, sells a brow kit. To create a Brow Kit
use BrowSense, ShadowSense and Pearlizer; apply to Brow. Brush Pearlizer under brow for
great look. For application use a smaller SenseCosmetics detail brush from brush collection.

Blend to Texture BlushSense

matte and Pearlized. Add a drop of Pearlizer to any shade of BlushSense.

Soften ShadowSense
Mix a drop of Pearlizer together with ShadowSense shade. Remember to allow each shade
layer to slightly ‘set’ and dry before applying next shade layer.

Top Coat Shadow


Apply ShadowSense shades. Allow to set. When dry, using blending brush, lightly stroke a
layer of Pearlizer across eyelid or on middle of eyelid to pop color.

Moisturizing Tint
Mix MakeSense Pearlizer with DayTime Moisturizer for a truly beautiful ‘al-natural’ glow.

Everyone’s skin turns a few shades darker in the Summertime, even if you’re diligent
about applying sun protection. If you’re tan and want to cover only imperfections, apply a
MakeSense Concealer or a MakeSense Foundation shade that’s at least one shade darker
than your regular color. Using a SenseCosmetics Blush Brush blend onto skin a SeneDerm
Translucid Loose Bronzer in place of liquid foundation.

Natural Concealing
Blending is the key! After applying first layer of MakeSense Foundation and selecting the
correct shade for a specific need (names of concealer will make selection simple), dot
concealer in the areas needed; pat gently using a cosmetic sponge or blending brush. If
area is still discolored, layer a dot of foundation over the concealer and gently pat until
the two are blended together. Set with your chosen shade of SeneDerm Translucid Loose
Powders and go!

Eliminate Dark Circles


Dark circles can be the result of lack of sleep, stress, staring at the computer for long
periods of time, not drinking enough water, working late hours and heredity. All of these can
be minimized and controlled (except for heredity).

To conceal darkness and bags under the eyes, place the concealer on the shadow running
the length just beneath the bag, not the bag itself; otherwise you’ll end up highlighting,
rather than hiding the problem.

Look Younger
Remove years from your face by applying a slightly lighter concealer or MakeSense
Foundation shade to the downward turning lines at the corner of your mouth.

BlushSense
Versatile Shading
Use MakeSense Blender (white) to soften the shade of any BlushSense to create a natural look.

LipSense Substitute
Use ShadowSense as the first lip shade layer to help create a rich matte lip look.

ShadowSense
Shadow for Blush
Many ShadowSense shades may be used as Blush for cheeks.

Tattoo Peek-a-boo
Use natural skin shades of ShadowSense to help hide tattoos.

LipSense
Layering
Always demonstrate the layering process of LipSense at each and every demonstration to
make sure customers understand the importance of layering. The best way to do this is to
use a Highlighter, Ice or Shimmer Shade as the third layer.

Tacky Lips
Be sure to keep your lips apart while applying LipSense, and resist the urge to press your
lips together like you would with regular lipsticks. Pressing the lips together is not necessary
to disperse the color, and it may create a tacky feel to you.

That Tingling Sensation


You may feel a slight tingling sensation, and if so, it is just an indication that your lips are
quite dry. Once you apply the Moisturizing Gloss, any tacky or tingling feeling will subside

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 195


immediately. After using the products for a few weeks, your lips should become beautifully
conditioned and all tingling should subside. Just be sure to reapply moisturizing gloss
throughout the day to keep the color fresh and your lips conditioned.

Customize Blending Shades


Create your own custom shades by layering a combination of different colors. LipSense
Classic Colors, Highlighters, and Shimmers blend together so easily and beautifully, you can
create a versatile wardrobe of lip color like no other. WE ARE THE ONLY Liquid Lip Color in
the market today that can blend colors together for a one–of–a–kind custom color and look
for each user.

Customize Mixing Products


Mix LipSense with powders to give pearly glow. Bronzing powders grab to moist skin. Water
down with Pearlizer.

LinerSense
Line Lips & Eyes
Use LinerSense as eyeliner to expand eye look choices.

Ooops! Remover
De-Spotter
Dab Ooops! Remover onto any LipSense spots spilled on clothing. Let set and wipe with
warm water just before it dries completely.

EyeSense
Beauty Mark
Use EyeSense shades to draw a natural looking-perfectly-placed beauty mark on cheek or
throat. It won’t budge.

196 Section IX – Product Tips


BrowSense
No-More-Grey
Use the bristled brush end of BrowSense to comb through grey brows. Thrust brush into
BrowSense solution and cover with BrowSense.

LashSense
Wand Application
The wand of LashSense is curved. When applying LashSense turn the curve away from the
eye. This will allow you to reach even the tiniest of lashes to make lashes look thicker.

Translucid Loose Powder


Powder Perfect
Carry Translucid Loose Powders in the Dispensing Brush in your purse to use to absorb
excess oil and perspiration throughout the day.

Versatile Textured Looks


Translucid Loose Powder in Bronze Dust are versatile and can be used to add texture,
dimension, and depth to other color cosmetics applications such as:
• Eye Shadows
• Blushes

Perking Pale Cheeks


To add dimension, use Translucid Loose Powder in Bronze Dust. The reddish brown tones
help counteract the ruddiness brought on by colder air. When applying use a large blending
blush brush, tap areas of your face that naturally pick up color from the sun: your forehead,
nose, cheeks, and chin.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 197


Evening Glam
Don’t forget to brush the top of your shoulders and your décolleté with the Bronzing Powder
to give your skin a warm dewy glow.

LipDimension
Use as highlighters for your lips to give them extra dimension. Apply Bronzer before lip color
dries and prior to application of moisturizing gloss.

SeneDerm BodyCare

Body Wash
Demoing Body Wash
At your demos, drop a dollop of Body Wash onto the Pooof, then dampen the Pooof with
some water from a glass. Rub the Body Wash and Pooof across your arm. Guests will be
amazed at the amount of lather. Let dry naturally and let guests feel how smooth and moist
your skin feels.

Body Scrub
Exfoliation Tips; Mechanical versus Chemical
There are two main types of exfoliates: mechanical and chemical.

Mechanical exfoliating is skin treatment where the upper layers of dead skin cells are
sloughed off by a loofah sponge, brush, or by other means. Mechanical exfoliating products
contain minuscule pieces of grit that, when rubbed on your skin, dislodge the dead skin
cells. The SeneGence preferred grit comes from volcanic ash and various other mild and
natural ingredients within the skin care line.

Chemical exfoliating does the same task as their mechanical siblings but by using a variety
of acids in place of the grit. Chemical exfoliating products usually contain alpha-hydroxy
acids, beta-hydroxy acids, or salicylic acids and literally burn and peel the surface cells from
the skin. We do not encourage harsh exfoliation of this type.

198 Section IX – Product Tips


Face Exfoliation
Exfoliate at least once a week to remove dead skin cells which will help your products
(including your sunscreen and moisturizers) penetrate deeper into the epidermis and become
more effective.

Moisture is a Must
If you exfoliate your face regularly with a mask or scrub, keep moisturizer on your face at all
times as the moisturizer helps to minimize moisture loss.

Exfoliation and Contact Lenses


Please, use care exfoliating, if you are a contact lens wearer, particularly rigid gas permeable
varieties. The tiny particles of an exfoliate can lodge underneath the lens and scratch your
cornea! Keep your eyes shut while rinsing, and rinse well, as the particles can run down your
face into your eyes from your forehead, even if you’re cautious. This may seem self-evident,
but you can’t be too careful with your eyes!

Oily Skin Exfoliation


If you have oily skin, you can gently exfoliate about 3-4 times a week. In the Summer,
exfoliating needs to be kicked up a notch because the sweat acts like a layer of glue which
will cause dead skin cells to stick together and coat your face and body.

Cellulite Exfoliation
Women with cellulite should try to exfoliate the thighs daily, if possible. Alternatively, use an
exfoliating hand glove when washing, in order to stimulate the blood circulation and dispose
of toxic waste products.

A Little Mechanical Help for the Body


The skin naturally exfoliates by shedding its dead top layers, however you will exfoliate
“mechanically” by using our Body Pooof and Body Scrub in areas that are difficult to naturally
exfoliate like knees, elbows and where-ever dry skin tends to build up.

Scale Away Dead Skin


Brush dry skin before getting into the shower or bath. You can use a loofah, exfoliating
gloves or a body exfoliating brush. Start at the soles of the feet and work your way up.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 199


Hands and Feet Exfoliation
SeneDerm with SenePlex Body Scrub softens hands and feet beautifully between manicures
and pedicures because the emollients make it so moisture-rich.

Self- Tanning Exfoliation


Exfoliate prior to applying your self-tanner for an even and natural glow.

Bikini Area Exfoliation


Exfoliating regularly will help prevent ingrown hairs and promotes smoother skin.

Too Much Exfoliation


Never over exfoliate with excessively abrasive exfoliating products, or you run the risk of
bursting the delicate blood vessels under the skin. If the vessels burst, your skin may appear
permanently flushed. This condition, known as telangiectasia, must then be treated using
laser surgery.

Male Exfoliation
One of the reasons men’s skin may tend to look more youthful than women’s is because
men tend to exfoliate daily when they shave.

Advanced Hydration Body Lotion


Base for Body Beauty
Use Advanced Hydration Body Lotion as the ‘base’ layer of SenePlex for your body. Once
applied, layer Shea Butter Body Cream, onto skin for longer lasting beauty for your body

Hand Cream
Hand Massage
Treat someone special!  Give your partner a mental makeover with a hand massage! Hold
your hand with your partner’s palm facing upwards, and your thumbs opposite each other,
resting on the center of your partner’s palm. Knead their palm with your thumbs and work

200 Section IX – Product Tips


your way up the soft pad at the base of the thumb and the palm itself. Massage the thumb
and each of the fingers one at a time, pulling gently on each one as you go. While the hands
are often ignored, this feels fabulous and helps alleviate tension. What a pleasure when you
only have a few moments to show someone you care!

Shea Butter Body Cream


Shea Butter Body Spa
During Summer, the air conditioning, sun and chlorine wreak havoc on skin and it is screaming
for moisture. Try this:

Instead of removing SenseCosmetics with Fooops, use SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Cream.
Gently massage a generous amount into skin, all over your face and throat and watch make-
up melt away. It’s true! (Remember the commercial for good old-fashioned cold cream?)
Without first rinsing; gently place a warm wash cloth on your face. Let the steam and stress
fade away. Rinse and repeat using a clean warm wet wash cloth until the color is no longer
seen on the wash cloth.

For normal to oily skin types–you need not cleanse any further. Simply apply nightly
moisturizers – Climate Control, SeneSerum-C, and Evening Moisturizer.

For normal to dry skin types–you may choose to follow with washing your face with 3 in 1
Cleanser (or not). , and moisturize with your choice of evening moisturizers–Climate Control,
SeneSerum-C, and Evening Moisturizer. Your skin will feel amazing! This is one of Joni’s
favorite ways to pamper her skin at the end of a long day!

Seal in Moisture for Damaged Hair


A small dollop size drop of SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Cream with SenePlex can be applied
to damp, clean hair as a deep leave-in treatment for dry and extremely damaged hair. Comb
through, place a shower cap on and run your blow dryer over the cap for approximately five
minutes. The heat allows the hair follicles to open up and receive the nutrients. Leave on for
20 minutes and wash thoroughly, with very warm water followed by a cool water final rinse.

Massage Cream
SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Cream with SenePlex is a wonderful massage lubricant as it
works deep into the tissue to repair skin damaged from dryness, cuts, old scars and over-
exposure due to outdoor elements.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 201


Manicure Miracle
To keep your hands and nails looking great you have to keep them protected; SeneDerm
Shea Butter Body Cream with SenePlex works wonders on thin or brittle nails and protects
them from the sun and chlorine. Of course, NailExtend is the perfect product to use to
achieve healthy nails.

Must for Men


For the man in your life–don’t forget to set a jar by his bed side for night time application that
will help alleviate extremely dry and rough skin conditions.

Pedicure Pretty
Prepare feet for pretty Summer sandals the easy way. Treating rough, dry feet by applying
SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Cream with SenePlex and massaging the cream well into
skin of clean, moist feet every night will alleviate the pain (and appearance ) of dry feet. You
would do well to ALSO start the day with a dab! Finish with Nailextend - it works on toes too!

Softening Cracked Heels


Cracked heels are uncomfortable and not very pretty during the Summer months. They
really show in strappy, feminine sandals. During the Winter you can hide them, but cold
weather and indoor heat sap moisture away, nonetheless. Regardless of the season, your
best bet is to exfoliate daily while you’re in the shower; pumice stone or foot files (they’re
like nail files, only bigger) are great for softening calluses. Then carefully pat them dry and
immediately apply SeneDerm Shea Butter Body Cream with SenePlex. It targets problem
areas such as your heels and toe calluses. Before bed, slather it on and slip into a pair of
socks for intense healing while you sleep.

202 Section IX – Product Tips


Section X – Product Q & A

General Product Line


Q) Does freezing of the product cause any loss of efficacy or other damage
to the product contents?
A) As long as the product has not separated, it is fine to use. Breakage of glass or plasitc
containers is what you will probably find, since the product expands when frozen, and
the glass has no “give”.
Q) In what order are the products applied to the skin?
A) The order depends upon the products being used. Generally, “Solutions” items go first,
followed by Climate Control, moisturizers, then foundation. There is a daily regime
chart inside each Beauty Book that outlines application order for each user.

SenePlex Complex
Q) What are the core building blocks of increased cellular renewal &
moisture content?
A) SenePlex Complex – a Kinetic ezyme that increases cellular renewal.

Q) Do the gained benefits (Makes skin more beautiful AS LONG AS YOU USE
PRODUCT) reverse themselves when product is discontinued; if so at
what pace?
A) The actives can only work when applied; therefore if one discontinues the use of
the products, the actives are not present. Cells are no longer exposed to the actives;
therefore the cellular renewal cycles revert back to their standard original growth
rate. The period of time will be determined by individual users standard growth cycle;
perhaps two; three … or four months.

Q) Clinical conclusions: Increase in cellular renewal, reduce wrinkles and


lines, skin moisture & hydration, skin firmness. Aren’t these all relating to
the same thing?
A) Absolutely. More moisture means more natural collagen and elastin – which means
increased elasticity and firmness; more fluid in the cells for light to reflect for greater
luminosity; less dead flat skin with grey Keratin – leading to the removal of dark
shadows and weighted layers of dead skin that create indentations or wrinkles.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 203


Skin Conditions
Q) Will any product help cure eczema?
A) We do not make cure claims. However ... Climate Control and/or Nangai Oil is very
soothing for this condition. We recommend consultation with doctor before use.

Terms
Q) What does Hypoallergenic mean?
A) Marketing concept; Hypo – “No one is allergic to the ingredients of this product.“
(Impossible to make such claims but accepted by the public as a quality
standard description).

Q) Is the product Acnegenic?


A) Acnegenic: ‘acnegenic’ is a term of trade or industry marketing term and not well
defined as a scientific standard. This is similar to the claims of some cosmetics that
they are ‘hypo-allergenic’ which term has been the subject of litigation and review
by government agencies have determined to be so undefined as basically not to be
a measurable standard at all. SeneGence refrains from using such undefined terms,
which sound pseudo scientific but really are not.

Q) What does Non comedogenic mean?


A) Does not clog pores.

Q) What is the Shelf Life of the products?


A) All skin care, body care, and hair care products are at least three years with the
exception of the following: Shea Butter Body Cream–2 years. Acne line has a separate
date, listed on each product.

Ingredients
Q) Do SeneGence products contain the acids and poisons from Vanuatu?
A) There are no acids NOR poisons from Vanuatu in our products.

Q) Do we need to consider whether shea nut butter is in the category of nut


allergy potential?
A) Each customer would need to consult with his/her doctor if there is a concern
before use.

204 Section X – Product Q & A


Q) Do you know if we have any fish oil or products in any of our products?
A) No, we do not have fish oil of any kind within the ingredients of our products.

Q) I see that some items contain parabens.  What are they and what are they
used for?
A) Parabens are a preservative. They are wax-free, animal-free parabens, and they are
safe to use. We do not make items you must refrigerate after use so we’ve included
the safest, most advanced, and versatile preservatives to ensure the actives are not
contaminated. The use of natural extracts and actives in body lotions, washes etc.
dictates the uses of preservatives to ensure the integrity of the product when stored.

Q) Are Parabens bad?


A) Parabens are anti-microbial. Although Parabens have been a subject of preoccupation
in some circles, SeneGence does not have reason to be concerned about their
inclusion in some SeneGence products. Parabens are quite common. Consumers will
find them on the ingredient lists of many other cosmetic products.
Parabens are not on the FDA’s list of prohibited ingredients, and have not been flagged
by the FDA for any safety issues. Please go to the link below for more information,
and let us know if you have further questions about this issue. http://www.fda.gov/
Cosmetics/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm397393.htm
Q) What is urea and why is in most of the products. Where does it come
from? What purpose does it serve in the products?
A) Urea–Component of urine, though we use the synthetic versions. In small
amounts urea has good water-binding and exfoliating properties for skin; in larger
concentrations it can cause inflammation (Source: Skin Pharmacology and Applied
Skin Physiology, January-February 2002, pages 44–54).

Q) Is our product Natural?


A) It is not 100 % natural; therefore we do not claim a “natural product.” However, by
far the majority of the ingredients are all natural. There are some scientific ingredients
needed to boost the effects of some of the natural ingredients and to make them ‘gel’
together so they work and do not separate. There are no harmful ingredients and no
animal by-products within our ingredients of choice. The Ingredient Glossary in this
manual describes the ingredients within each of the products.

Q) Is our product Vegan?


A) Yes. There are no animal by-products in our products. We use Synthetic Beeswax in
our glosses.

Q) Do you test on animals?


A) Absolutely Not.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 205


Q) Is our product Cruelty- Free?
A) Neither we nor our suppliers do any animal testing on our products, and thus we
consider our products to be cruelty-free.

Q) Do our products contain animal ingredients?


A) Absolutely Not.

Q) What kind of grain is the ethyl alcohol derived from; are there any
animal derivatives?
A) MGP Ingredients alcohol is derived from Corn, Wheat and Milo. There are no
animal derivatives.

Sun Protection
Q) What is the difference between a mechanical shield and a
chemical shield?
A) A chemical shield requires certain chemicals that will react with the UV light and
block the rays from the skin. A mechanical shield has nothing to do with chemicals.
It is a protective covering; like placing a garment over your skin for protection from
sun exposure.

SeneDerm SkinCare
Q) How long does each product last before having to purchase a refill?
A) Skin care usage is based upon the hygiene habits of the user. Here is a
general estimation:
Cleanser – 1 to 6 months
Daytime Moisturizer – 1 ½ to 4 months
Evening Moisturizer – 2 to 4 months

3-in-1 Cleanser
Q) How do I know which 3-in-1 Cleanser to recommend?
A) Here are some general rules of thumb:
Women over age 30 tend to have Normal to Dry or Dry Skin

206 Section X – Product Q & A


If you can see large pores across cheeks and nose that generally indicates an
abundance of certain hormones that can create extra oil production,the cleanser for
oily skin would be appropriate.
If you see a ‘porcelain’ looking complexion that generally means an abundance of
a different set of hormones that cause drier skin, and therefore a consumer should
choose Normal to Dry to Dry based upon how tight and dry skin feels on a daily basis.

Climate Control
Q) When in your skin care regime do you apply Climate Control?
A) Climate Control should be applied directly to clean skin before any other
moisturizing product.

Q) What is the shelf life of Climate Control?


A) The actives in climate control are not activated until one vigorously shakes the clear
actives into the blue delivery system. Unshaken, and therefore un-activated, the shelf
life of the product is years.  Once activated, the actives will be active somewhere
between 3 to 6 months.

Q) How do I begin to use Climate Control?


A) Spritz about ten sprays onto arms or legs and rub in. Shake Climate Control vigorously
until solution turns entirely light blue.

SeneSerum-C
Q) When do I use SeneSerum-C?
A) After Climate Control and before Day or Evening Moisturizer.

DayTime Moisturizers
Q) Can I use the Daytime Moisturizer at night?
A) Yes, however Evening Moisturizer offers a longer lasting protective layer from free
radicals to skin while sleeping.

Q) Can men use Daytime Moisturizers?


A) Yes. In fact it is perfect for them as it also serves to protect skin from the harmful
effects of the environment.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 207


Evening Moisturizers
Q) How much product should I use?
A) A nickel size dollop on each cheek should suffice. Be sure to apply to décolletage.

EyeCrème
Q) Is EyeCrème applied to both the upper lid and skin below the eye?
A) You may apply EyeCrème to both areas. However if eyelids are oily it will probably
be unnecessary.

Q) When do I apply EyeCrème?


A) EyeCreme is the heaviest (largest molecular weight) product we have so you apply it
as the last step.
Day; after DayTime Moisturizer and before color cosmetics of any kind.
Evening; After Evening Moisturizer.

EyeLuminator
Q) Can I use EyeLuminator at night?
A) Yes, but why would you? It’s a highlighter. It is best used as a part of your
makeup routine. It is best applied under the eye area after application of
MakeSense Foundation.

SeneDerm Solutions

LashExtend
Q) Once my eyelashes have grown, how often do I use LashExtend Clear?
A) Apply to base of lashes twice a day two to three times per week to maintain your new
longer lashes. Or use LashExtend Black or Brown as eyeliner a few days a week.

208 Section X – Product Q & A


LipVolumizer
Q) Once the desired increase in lip volume and moisture has been achieved
how often shall I use LipVolumizer?
A) To maintain results use twice a day two to three times per week.

Q) Can I use LipVolumizer with LipSense?


A) Yes. However, for some individuals LipSense may not last quite as long when using
LipVolumizer as the lip moisturizing gloss for LipSense. It depends upon the pH
balance of one’s skin.

Q) Can I use LipVolumizer as a gloss without LipSense?


A) Yes.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
Q) Once the desired decrease in wrinkle depth has been achieved how often
shall I use Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?
A) To maintain desired results use twice daily.

Q) When should I apply Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?


A) Apply Anti-Wrinkle Treatment after cleansing skin and before application of any other
skin care product.

SenseCosmetics with SenePlex


General

Q) What is the shelf life of the liquid products?


A) All of our liquid products have at least a three year shelf life (minimum) (except as
otherwise stated herein).

Q) How well do the color products hold up to perspiration?


A) For general use, the color line is resistant and some are considered to be waterproof.
The MakeSense Foundation may run with profuse sweating.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 209


MakeSense Original Foundation/Pearlizer
Q) What are the active sunscreen ingredients in your foundation?
A) There are a number of ingredients that afford sunscreen capabilities (e.g. algae or
orchid…). If you are questioning the “Active” ingredient that is a considered sunscreen
ingredients, you are probably referring to the ingredient that the FDA has classified/
approved/monogrammed as sunscreen. Titanium Dioxide would be the ingredient
found in our foundation. We would say our products act as a mechanical shield.

Q) What is the SPF of the Original Foundation?


A) When used in conjunction with the SeneDerm DayTime Moisturizer it is a mechanical
shield equivalent to 30 SPF.

Q) If using MakeSense foundation, can different cosmetic lines be used over


the top with/without chemical warfare? If yes, will it apply well? (Customer
wants to purchase only the Foundation)
A) Yes. However, we cannot guarantee that results will be the same as we have no way
of knowing the ingredients of the other products a consumer may try to use. And
most certainly the mechanical shield will not necessarily equate to that of a waterproof
SPF 30.

Corrective Color Concealer/Blender


Q) How do I know which concealer to use?
A) The title of the product tells you how to advise others to use the product. e. g..:
“Green Gets the Red Out”

Q) When do I apply concealer?


A) Sandwich any blender/concealer between layers of MakeSense Foundation. Apply
Foundation and let it adapt to skin tone; if still needed apply a thin layer of chosen
Concealer. Let it adapt to Foundation and cover imperfection. If after a moment, you
can see the Concealer shade, apply a very light layer of MakeSense Foundation on top
of the Concealer.

BlushSense
Q) Can I apply BlushSense directly onto my skin, even without the use of
MakeSense Foundation?
A) Yes. BlushSense is good for your skin and will deliver a natural looking blush tone
to cheeks.

210 Section X – Product Q & A


Q) Can I use the darker shades of BlushSense as a contouring shade?
A) Yes.

Q) Can I mix BlushSense with LipSense to create a custom shade?


A) Yes.

ShadowSense
Q) Why do the eye shadows burn some eyelids?
A) Eye Lids tend to be extremely sensitive and, most often quite dry. Before
application of Foundation or any other SenseCosmetic, use EyeCrème on the eyelid.
This will moisturize and protect sensitive eyelids.
In some cases, burning sensations on the eyelid simply mean the shadow has grown
bacteria within the tube due to exposure to bacteria transferred from skin to the
applicator, then from the applicator to inside of the tube. Discontinue use of shadows.
Throw them away. It’s time to purchase new tubes.
In rare cases some women may not be able to use the product on their eyes as they
are sensitive to SenePlex or micas contained within the formulas.

LipSense/LinerSense Liquid Lip Color


Q) How long does each product last? Especially if you are using 3 layers with
the lip color.
A) When one color is used every day the lip color lasts 4-6 months; however most
customers purchase more than one color which extends the longevity of the product;
gloss 3-4 weeks but again most customers purchase different glosses.

Q) What preservative is present in LipSense?


A) There is no preservative in LipSense. It is self-preserved. The liquid delivery system
naturally kills germs and bacteria.

Q) Does the product contain Lead?


A) SeneMyth Debunked Once and for All! Periodically during the past few years we
at SeneGence have received inquiries into whether our products contain lead. They
do not.
These inquiries seem to stem from an internet rumor which began around 2003,
concerning the false allegation concerning lead in various lipstick brands. Although
LipSense (to our knowledge) was never mentioned in the internet rumor, the inquiry to
us on the subject nevertheless began about that same time. If you hear this rumor, or

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 211


receive questions or concerns on the subject of whether LipSense or any SeneGence
product contains lead as an ingredient, please assure your customers categorically
THAT IT DOES NOT AND NEVER HAS.

Q) Does SeneGence have any LipSense or Lip Gloss that are both free of
wheat and gluten?
A) Yes, our Lip color and gloss do NOT contain wheat or gluten.

Q) Do we have any formaldehyde in LipSense?


A) No Formaldehyde.

Q) Why does my LipSense not stay on and peel off?


A) The color technology works a little differently on each user due to different pH factors.
Also, the long-lasting color technology can be impacted by medications a consumer
may be taking. You may find some shades work better on your lips than others. Make
sure you use only three layers of color. If the color is too thick it may peel off.

Q) Is our lip color Kosher?


A) The present certificate for Kosher LipSense are past their effective date, however,
nearly all of our stock of lip colors and all of our glosses were manufactured while
the kosher certification was in effect. We are not pursuing another Kosher product
certification due to the amount of money involved per color (a lot for each and
every color!).

Q) The lip colors appear to be slightly different shades from time-to-time.


Why?
A) Just like in wall paper, tile and fabric, it is not unusual to have some variation in color
from one product run to another because the color pigments we use are from natural
sources. Our formulators try earnestly to match each run to the prior for consistency
but there can be minute variations.

LipSense Gloss
Q) Is there an SPF for the glosses?
A) No.

Q) Which glosses contain mica?


A) Any gloss that is shiny, Pearlized, or Glittered may have mica.

212 Section X – Product Q & A


Q) Why does our lip gloss have paraffin in it? It also has shea butter in it but
how can the shea butter penetrate the wax to heal our lips?
A) Shea butter has a lower molecular weight(that means the molecule is smaller) than
paraffin...so it does not have to penetrate paraffin, it’s there on the skin “ahead” of the
wax. The reason for the petrolatum/paraffin is to create a barrier to prevent moisture
(water) from leaving the lips.

Ooops! Remover
Q) Do my customers have to purchase an Ooops! Remover every time they
purchase a LipSense shade?
A) No. However, it is essential and a recommendation of SeneGence that the Distributor
sells an Ooops! to each ‘first time buyer.’ A LipSense customer must have a color
remover in the event it is necessary to remove the color from lips. It can also be helpful
in attempting to remove spilled lip color on clothing.

EyeSense
Q) EyeSense seems to ‘burn’ my eyes. Why?
A) EyeSense original formula is formulated with Denatured Alcohol that evaporates
from the brush into the atmosphere. The sensitive nerve ending on the eyes feels the
evaporation process. It is not burning.

BrowSense
Q) BrowSense seems to be difficult to remove when I wash my face. Why?
A) You MUST remove BrowSense with Fooops SenseCosmetics Color Remover or Pads
as it ‘unbinds’ the color technology from the skin. If Fooops is not used it may be
possible the color that binds to the skin will remove the top layer of skin when rubbed
off with pressure.

LashSense
Q) Does our mascara contain mercury?
A) No.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 213


Translucid Loose Powders
Q) What makes SeneDerm Translucid Powders different?
A) SeneGence has a patent-pending method of processing high quality grade, fine, clean
talc that makes it non-clogging (non- comedogenic), extremely fluffy and light; almost
as if it were water, fluid and translucid.

Q) Can you tell me why talc was used in the formulation?


A) Talc absorbs perspiration and provides a mechanical shield. We use the finest source of
talc so that it does not clog pores.

Q) I heard Talc clogs pores.


A) There are approximately 3000 different grades and types of talc in the world market. All
talcs are not created equal. Some do, some do not. Ours do not.

Q) Why?
A) Talc is a very safe, natural-absorbing mineral. That is why it is used to absorb moisture
on babies’ bottoms. One would never use a pore-clogger (comedogenic) on a baby’s
bottom! It is so safe that Board Certified Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons use
talc in their surgeons’ gloves. The key cause of pore clogging in humans is improper
cleansing of the skin.

Q) Do the powders act as a mechanical shield if worn without


the foundations?
A) Yes, though we can-not put an SPF rating to it and we do not recommend usage as
a stand- alone sunshield. It is meant to add another layer of protection to the shield
you already have on as a lotion or foundation on your face. The minerals and Titanium
Dioxide along with other beneficial ingredients within the formula combine together as
a mechanical shield.

Q) Do I remove the sponge out of the Powder and Bronzer Brush?


A) There is a sponge located where the black portion of the cap on the brush meets the
gold around the clear portion of the tube ... it’s up inside the black portion of the brush
dispenser. Please do NOT remove this sponge as it is part of the delivery system. If it’s
not releasing the product, shake the brush dispenser a few times to prime the powder
and get the product moving.

214 Section X – Product Q & A


Fooops! SenseCosmetic Color Remover
Q) How important is it to use Fooops Color Remover prior to 3-in-1 Cleanser?
A) It is essential. Fooops is a moisturizing ‘unbinder’ of the color technology and will
loosen the technology so that it can be removed with a warm, wet wash cloth. If
Fooops is not used it is probable that the color technology remains upon skin and
limits the cleansing process.

Body Care
Q) Does the body care (used together) have any SPF properties?
A) No. Using the SeneDerm Daytime Moisturizer with original MakeSense Foundation will
achieve a mechanical shield equivalency SPF 30 sun protection.

Q) How long does each product last?


A) That depends totally upon usage: Body Wash–2 to 4 months, Body Scrub–2 to 4
months, Advanced Hydration Body Lotion–1-2 months, Hand Cream–1-2 months.

Body Wash
Q) Can I use Body Wash without a Body Poof?
A) Yes. However, you will use more product than is necessary because the product was
formulated to ‘aerate.’ The product expands with air and when used with a Poof a
quarter size dollop will cleanse and moisturize your entire body.

Q) Can I use the body wash as a bubble Bath?


A) Yes.

Body Scrub
Q) Do I need a different product to use as a scrub for my feet and hands?
A) No. Body Scrub has plenty of exfoliates and essentials oils to soften and smooth the
skin on these over- exposed areas of the body.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 215


Advanced Hydration Body Lotion
Q) Can I use Advanced Hydration Body Lotion on my hands as a hand
Cream?
A) You can – but it will not be as effective. SeneDerm Hand Cream specifically protects
hands from exposure and constant moisture loss.

Hand Cream with Shea Butter


Q) Does the Hand Cream contain a sunscreen?
A) Hand Cream with Shea Butter does not contain a chemical sunscreen. Instead it
contains botanicals that help to protect skin by filtering rays from the sun. However, it
has no SPF rating.

Shea Butter Body Cream


Q) Can the Shea Butter Body Cream be used on the face?
A) Yes it can.

Q) What is the purpose of the body butter?


A) The purpose of the body butter product is to eliminate dry dehydrated skin instantly.

Section XI: Product Test Results,
Clinicals and Conclusions

SeneDerm SenePlex
Complex
Summary
SeneDerm SkinCare products are blended with natural botanical extracts, marine algae,
vitamins, liposomes, and essential oils to encourage new cellular growth. This is a powerful
combination of vitamins to protect the skin from cell-destroying free radicals. Our skin care
products incorporate the latest discoveries backed by clinical studies with documented
results. The use of UGL Complex increases the rate of the epidermal skin cell renewal
which in turn, improves skin properties including anti-aging effects. Our skin care treatment
with SeneDerm products containing SenePlex Complex also significantly reduced skin
pigmentation and consequently improved skin clarity and luminosity. But possibly the most
important clinical fact was that after 8 weeks of testing, EVERY SINGLE PERSON tested
showed a significant reduction in the number of facial fine lines and wrinkles with the overall
average reduction being 55.7% FEWER FINE LINES AND WRINKLES THAN THEY HAD
PRIOR TO BEGINNING THE CLINICAL STUDY.

Test Results
The following information contains results of independent laboratory tests and clinical
studies performed over an 8-week period on twenty female subjects ranging from 18 to 55
years of age with varying oily, normal, and dry skin types. SeneDerm Evening Moisturizer
was used in these tests. Remarkably, ALL areas tested showed significant improvement on
ALL the test subjects.

Cellular Renewal
The product treatment was shown to be highly effective in increasing cell renewal with an
average increase in cell renewal rate of 23.3%. Additionally, statistical analysis has revealed
that the difference seen between treatment and control groups are significant at 95%
confidence limit level.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 217


Test results for Cellular Renewal can be reviewed on TABLE 1 and 2 below.

218 Section XI: Product Test Results, Clinicals and Conclusions


SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 219
Firmness and Elasticity
Indentometry method measures firmness at deeper layers in the skin (including the full
epidermis and dermis). A force is applied perpendicularly to the test area (the cheek area of
the 20 subjects) and the depth of the indentation is measured in millimeters. As the elastin
network becomes more developed, the ability of it to resist elasticity increases and the
depth of indentation decreases. After eight weeks usage, approximately 52% reduction in
the indentation depth was noted. Test results showed a 51.9% increase in the firmness of
the skin.

Test results for Firmness & Elasticity can be reviewed on TABLES 2A and 2B below.

220 Section XI: Product Test Results, Clinicals and Conclusions


Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Changes in skin texture were assessed by taking Siflo Replicas of the canthus area and
analyzing the replicas with a computer image analysis system. As the results indicated,
significant reduction of 23.2% FEWER FINE LINES AND WRINKLES was observed after just
two weeks of product treatment. As the treatment continued, greater reductions of 38.8%
and 55.7% were observed at week 4 and 8 post treatment respectively.

We find it remarkable that EVERY test subject benefited by having fewer fine lines and
wrinkles after the eight week clinically measured tests; as a group average, the OVERALL
REDUCTION IN FINE LINES AND WRINKLES WAS – 55.7 %.

Test results for Fine Lines and Wrinkles can be reviewed on TABLE 3 below.

222 Section XI: Product Test Results, Clinicals and Conclusions


Luminosity
Luminosity consists of transparency and color factors that are commonly known as skin tone
and degree of redness. Determination of skin luminosity is particularly useful in determining
the efficacy of “skin conditioners” and cosmetics. Luminosity studies have been utilized to
measure the degree of intracellular metabolism, water content, and oxygen levels. Eight
weeks of treatment with SeneDerm™ Evening Moisturizer resulted in a 48.7% improvement
in skin luminosity.

Test results for Luminosity can be reviewed on TABLE 4 below.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 223


Skin Density
The density or thickness of the skin was also studied via ultrasound measurements at the
site of the subjects’ cheek area to evaluate the effect of the cosmetic product being studied.
After 4 weeks of testing, it was determined that the average skin density had increase by 6
% and by the end of the 8 week clinical study the skin thickness for the average of the test
group had increased by 12.1%.

The test results for Skin Density are shown in TABLE 5 below.

224 Section XI: Product Test Results, Clinicals and Conclusions


Moisturization and Hydration
Moisture content was assessed via impedance measurements on the cheek area of subjects
with moderately dry skin conditions. As early as two weeks of treatment, a significant
average increase of 20.4% was observed. Increased moisturization and hydration continued
throughout the treatment period with improvements of 32.6% at 4 weeks and 54.2% at
8 weeks.

Test results for Moisturization and Hydration are shown on TABLE 6 below.

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 225


Clinical Conclusions
The laboratory testing in this study provided results showing that the SeneDerm product used
in these tests was highly effective in improving skin moisturization, skin firmness, reducing
lines and wrinkles, and increasing cellular renewal. Ultrasound analysis also revealed an
increase in skin thickness as well as tissue density with the product treatment which lead
to the improvement in skin firmness. Eight weeks of product treatment also significantly
reduced skin pigmentation and consequently improved skin clarity and luminosity.

LipVolumizer
Summary
LipVolumizer Increases lip volume up to 20% and increases lip moisture up to 54% within
one month, with daily use.

Test Results

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 227


By mixing natural ingredients like the Portulaca Pilosa or ‘Kiss-Me-Quick’ plant with specific
peptides that help boost the collagen matrix production and other ingredients to increase
moisturization of lips and blending them with SenePlex complex to increase cellular renewal
we have formulated a lip volumizer designed to achieve the following results:

Increased Lip Volume


+8.6% for all test participants up to +19.6% for those with thinnest lips

Increased Lip Moisturization


+50.6% for all the dermis

Restored Density of Lips


+8.5%

Increased Firmness and ability of the skin to withstand impacts


+13.3% and + 14.9% respectively

Increased Fringe Protection


+15.1% in volume curve of lips for 69%
of test participants & 10.5% increase in
softness for 83% of test participants

The majority of test volunteers experience at least


a 10% increase in lip volume while those with the
thinnest lips experience up to a remarkable 20%
lip volume increase after daily use for one month
twice a day.

Note decrease in vertical wrinkles on lips with one month’s daily use, twice a day.

Conclusion
With Lip Volumizer we’ve strengthened the mechanism for moisturization to help eliminate
drying and cracking and mixed it with the ingredients needed to help reinforce the internal
matrix of the lip area to increase volume.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
Summary
One of the most striking signs of skin aging is the intensity of frown and wrinkle lines of the
forehead, between the eyes, the nasal area reaching from the base of the nose to the corner
of the mouth, the chin, upper lip, and neck area. This occurs in time and is affected by certain
biochemical, genetic, and physiological factors enhanced by environmental exposure.

228 Section XI: Product Test Results, Clinicals and Conclusions


However, secondary factors such as repeated facial movements caused by contraction
of the muscles during expression can cause exaggerated and unnecessary emphasis and
intensify light and medium wrinkles found in these areas of the face.

SeneDerm Solutions with SenePlex Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is formulated to reduce light


and medium wrinkle depth an average of 34% (up to 63% in some cases) after 4 weeks
of treatment.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is formulated with ingredients that reduce the intensity of wrinkle
lines (and therefore the depth) while at the same time stimulate cell production and restore
proper moisture content of cells to produce fuller, plumper cells in areas that are recessed.

Test Results
The goal of the test was to prove the combination of complex ingredients down-regulate
muscle action either directly or by attenuating the activity of the innervating neurone while
another results in a decrease of their excitability and a consequent relaxation of muscle
contraction. Both mechanisms are complementary and work together as an effective
muscles relaxant and to prove the wrinkle reduction efficacy.

The macro-roughness of the silicon replica, which corresponds to the contour of the eye
area was obtained from twenty-seven (27) volunteers. The treatment lasted four (4) weeks
with application twice a day. The fragments of selected wrinkles were clean, with no makeup,
hairs, or cracks.

Test results for Wrinkle Depth are seen right. in a real


map of the surface structure.

Wrinkle reduction averaged about 34% and reached


up to 63% in some cases.

Conclusion
Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is formulated with a “Calming Complex” of
peptides and unique, natural ingredients acting synergistically together to
calm muscle action by easing the activity of certain innervating neuron,
significantly reducing the intensity of frown and wrinkle lines while another
formulation ingredient causes relaxation of the muscle contraction in the
area where Anti-Wrinkle treatment is applied.

Section XII: Glossary of Ingredients &
Terms

Delivery Systems
A delivery system is exactly what ‘delivery system’ says. It is an ingredient or combination
of ingredients or even a method that ‘deliver’ other beneficial ingredients upon or into a
specific place or region. For example, in an aerosol hairspray, the delivery system is the
aerosol form. Delivery system for shampoo is a liquid water base.

The delivery systems within each of the SeneGence products vary but the end results
have much in common. They each deliver to the specified area of the skin through liquids,
creams, gels, oils, and lotions products with ingredients that really work to help make skin
more beautiful.

Ingredients and Affects


Ingredients are immensely versatile. Take for example “Ingredient A”. ‘Ingredient A’ has a
general description regarding how it performs and what effect it may have for a particular
use. However, mix “Ingredient A” with another ingredient and “Ingredient A” performs in a
completely different manner and has a completely different effect upon the particular use
for which it was first intended. Now multiply that unknown, times the number of additional
ingredients listed within any Ingredient Listing, and you can imagine the complexity of trying
to explain exactly what “Ingredient A” does, what effect it has, and how it performs in that
particular solution in a single sentence.

Additionally “Ingredient A” performs in a completely different manner when applied onto


different surfaces, substances, internally, externally, cooked, ingested, inhaled, squashed,
stamped-on, or burnt! It is doubtful any one ingredient works, reacts, or performs the same in
every SeneGence Product. And it is highly probable that these specific ingredients may have
a different outcome/effect on different consumers because of differences in the chemical
makeup of their bodily systems. For example, the degree of body acidity in different people;
in other words, their ph balance.

Glossary of Ingredients & Terms


The Ingredient Listings in the section below are listed in a simple manner whenever possible
as found in many different reference sources, often through medical sites on the web and as
they apply regarding skin care usages.

230 Section XII: Glossary of Ingredients & Terms


While there are various claims of the health benefits which may be provided by many of these
specific ingredients, nothing herein is intended to convey guaranteed health or medical
benefits or cures from their use.

The Glossary of Ingredients and Terms also serves as an opportunity to teach. Some of
the explanations for various ingredients listed have educational, historical, medical, and
theoretical content that may be of interest and amusement to the reader.

The goal of providing a Glossary of Ingredients is to hopefully give the reader a pretty good
indication that the product they are learning about is made of very good ingredients that are
also good for their skin, health, and over-all well being.

Copper PCA: A synthetic skin-conditioning agent composed of the copper salt of
PCA (Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid).

Corallina Officinalis (Blue Seaweed) Extract: helps prevent aging by hydrating,


tightening, and toning the skin. Also provides sun protection.

Cosmeceuticals: Within the cosmetics and personal care industries, the use of the
term “cosmeceuticals” describes creams and lotions from which the skin may derive
benefits such as nutrients and vitamins, etc. What most people do not know is that
the nutrients and vitamins contained within these creams and lotions are often made
of molecules that are too big to penetrate through the skin. No matter how much
money you spend on such products-they do not work! The term cosmeceutical is
often used as a marketing pitch to sell products. There are no rules that instruct
companies to tell the unaware masses that their products may contain only a tiny
bit of the nutrients and vitamins upon which they claim to be a cosmeceutical; nor
do they have to tell you the molecules of these ingredients are too large to penetrate
the skin. SeneCeuticals™-SeneDerm™ with SenePlex™ and the long-lasting color
technology of SenseCosmetics™ with SenePlex™ are made of ingredients of varied
molecular weights. Some molecules are small enough to deliver the benefits of
SenePlex Complex into the bottom of the second layer of skin while other molecules
are just large enough to offer the skin’s surface a layer of protection from free radicals
in the atmosphere and prevent skin’s moisture loss.

environment and aging can cause the decrease of HA content in skin, and as a result
the water maintaining ability of the skin is weakened and the skin looks dry and rough.
One of the main causes of skin senility is also the decrease of polysaccharides,
such as HA. The special structure characteristic of HA makes it highly moisturizing
and it has a water content regulating function; additionally, its solution has high

SeneGence Product Knowledge Guide_071017 251


viscoelasticity and lubricity. When HA solution is applied on the surface of skin, it
can form an air permeable layer and keep the skin moist and smooth. The small
molecular weight HA can penetrate into dermis layer, fully combine with water,
promote skin blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption and maintain normal
metabolism, and as a result, it plays a role of wrinkle removing, improving one’s
appearance and improving the health of the skin.
