Clayton Shagal is based on three key componets: Collagen, Elastin, Moisture. Collagen locks in moisture hydrating both the outer and inner layer of skin. As skin ages it can lose its collagen fibrils. Clayton Shagal works to retain moisture in the collagen fibers keeping them nourished. Elastin is the main protein in elastic fibers, connecting the tissue and outer layer of skin. Elastin plays a key role in skin hydration, binding the collagen together, helping to keep the moisture locked in. With age Moisture in the skin decreases creating a need to replenish the skin. All of these componenets are treated when using Clayton Shagal products, making your skin appear young and healthy.
