And now back to the chemistry:
Eye Revive works because of the chemistry that enables our Silk Microcapsule technology: ingredient stabilization and ingredient delivery.
Step 1. We leverage silk's propensity to refold into fibers to surround and encapsulate the actives, here vitamin C and caffeine, forming our Silk Microcapsule technology. Silk, in this gel-like state, keeps the actives stable and at their most potent.
Step 2. Ingredient delivery. Like the process of drug delivery, our technology relies on the chemical process of diffusion: the process by which smaller molecules (VitC and caffeine) make their way out of the silk matrix and into the skin. This process is facilitated when a user (you!) gently blends the product into the skin, in essence mechanically breaking the Silk Microcapsules open and releasing their actives, selected to minimize appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles.
The entire process of silk stabilization and delivery would not be possible without the principle of affinity chemistry. Remember? Like likes like. Silk prefers binding with collagen over either vitamin C or caffeine. When silk contacts the skin, it is willing to leave its first friends (VitC and caffeine) for its BFF collagen.
