What is Mevalonic Acid?
Mevalonic Acid is an essential molecule used by cells to support every biological cycle in the body. Skin cells, for example, use Mevalonic Acid to produce CoQ10, squalene, Vitamin K and skin lipids—all elements that are critical to skin repair and renewal.
How does Mevalonic Acid work?
Each cell contains RNA, a molecular code that broadcasts instructions to the cell—essentially defining its purpose in life. Back to our skin cell example, if the coding of a cell’s RNA tells it to produce collagen, Mevalonic Acid boosts the RNA’s broadcast “signal” to help focus the cell’s manufacturing machinery on collagen production. Mevalonic Acid also helps support cellular metabolism, so each cell has access to the energy it needs to function at its best.
Do Mevalonic Acid Levels Decline with Age?
As the body ages, especially when challenged by disease, injury and chronic environmental assaults, molecules made from Mevalonic Acid like Squalene, CoQ10, skin lipids become less available. Signs of declining Mevalonic Acid, and the resulting decline in cellular health, are consistent with the typical hallmarks of aging – from arthritis to wrinkles and dry skin.
Can Mevalonic Acid be Applied Topically?
Until recently, synthesizing Mevalonic Acid was extremely time consuming and costly. AMEVA’s patent-pending technological breakthrough allows AMEVA to offer two new topical formulas with potent levels of Mevalonic Acid: AMEVA Multipotent Serum and AMEVA Skin Activating Moisturizer. These unique formulas are designed to optimize all visual and textural markers of skin health to help skin look and feel more youthful.
What is the Environmental Impact of AMEVA’s Mevalonic Acid Production?
AMEVA’s exclusive technology allows carbon negative production of Mevalonic acid, upcycling plant-based manufacturing and agricultural by-products, like saw dust and farm waste.
Why is Mevalonic Acid Uniquely Effective in Skincare?
The small molecular size of Mevalonic Acid allows it to penetrate surface layers of the skin efficiently and effectively. In comparison, retinol is twice as big, squalene is four times larger, and collagen is two hundred times larger.
