GAMMA PGA – Our Universal Ingredient

GAMMA PGA is a remarkably potent hydrating compound that represents a major breakthrough in the science of skincare.  It is ten times more hydrating than Hyaluronic acid and far more elastic than collagen.  In Asia, Gamma PGA is commonly recognized for its specific skin care benefits.  It is 100% natural, bio degradable and non-toxic.  In fact, it is even edible.

Originally discovered in marine jellyfish, Gamma PGA, also known as Natto Gum, Plant/Phyto Collagen or Gamma Poly Glutamic Acid, is derived from NATTO, a Japanese soybean-based health food item dating back more than 1000 years. 

Gamma PGA has many features and benefits:

 

UMO Facial Spa
UMO combines innovative Asian technology with proven skin enhancing ingredients in the UMO Facial Spa for skin rejuvenation.   The latest skincare advancements of Gamma PGA, Ions and Ultrasonic Nano Mist™ work with customized facial treatments to deeply hydrate, soothe and even out skin tone and texture.  The result is more vibrant, radiant skin without any surgery, needles or downtime.

How the UMO Facial Spa Works

The UMO Facial Spa creates an Ultrasonic Nano Mist so ultra-fine that it easily penetrates deeply into the skin, carrying with it the dissolved Gamma PGA and any other booster active ingredients like chamomile, tea tree and zinc, to where they can provide the most beneficial long lasting results.

The Nano Mist is seven times smaller than water droplets from a traditional steamer.  A synergistic effect is created when the vibrating nano water molecules combine with the potent ionic Gamma PGA formula, resulting in penetration into the skin’s deepest layers.  Negative ions are created which have important skin benefits like eradicating free radicals, balancing acidic body tissue fluid, and aiding in the excretion of waste through the pores to promote accelerated cell removal.

As the Ultrasonic Nano Mist penetrates the skin it also has an affect on the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF).  This is a group of chemicals in the Stratum Corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) that has the ability to bind and hold water molecules in and around the Keratin cells.  With age, the NMF ceases to work as effectively and the skin becomes more dry and cracked.  The UMO formulas are designed to enhance the skin’s natural moisturizing capability and help the Stratum Corneum stay smooth and intact.

UMO Hand Spa
UMO blends innovative Asian technology with centuries old Acupressure to create a hand treatment designed to restore youthful plumpness, brightness and suppleness to the hands.  The UMO Hand Spa uses ultrasonic pulse energy (a form of acupressure) to increase microcirculation (the blood flow through very small blood vessels such as capillaries).  Increased microcirculation contributes to both skin color and suppleness.  Additionally, the ultrasonic vibrations aid the absorption and penetration of the active ingredients for a long lasting and highly effective treatment.

How the UMO Hand Spa Works

The UMO Hand Spa is a very comfortable and relaxing treatment.  Hands are placed in a chamber filled with water, Gamma PGA, and customized ingredients depending on the nature of the treatment.  A synergistic effect is created when the vibrating water molecules combine with the potent ionic Gamma PGA formula, resulting in optimal penetration to the skin’s deepest layers. 

As the skin is penetrated, the ingredients also have an affect on the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF).  This is a group of chemicals in the Stratum Corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) that has the ability to bind and hold water molecules in and around the Keratin cells.  With age, the NFM ceases to work as effectively and the skin becomes more dry and cracked.  The UMO formulas are designed to enhance the skin’s natural moisturizing capability and help the Stratum Corneum stay smooth and intact.

After ten minutes, when hands are removed, you can see immediate visible results of softer, plumper and supple hands.

UMO 24 Karat Gold Facial Treatment - The Gold Standard in Skincare

This unique skin 100% natural and luxurious rejuvenating experience utilizes a proprietary new technology of Gamma PGA, Ions, and Ultrasonic Nano Mist combined with pure 24 Karat Gold to deliver glowing, radiant skin.

Throughout history, Gold has been revered for its luxurious and beautifying properties.  Dating back to the time of Cleopatra, pure gold was used as a tool to maintain youthful skin.  Historians have long maintained that Cleopatra slept in a gold mask every night.  In ancient Rome, gold salves were used for the treatment of a variety of skin problems.  Gold was also regarded as the key to youth in ancient Chinese medicine, as the queen of the Ch’ing dynasty used a gold massage roller on her face everyday.

For all its apparent benefits, however, until now Gold has not been commonly used for modern day skin treatments because it is very difficult to dissolve and penetrate the skin.  Traditional delivery systems are not effective.  UMO discovered a unique and effective delivery system with a proprietary ingredient carrier to harness the power of gold and all its benefits for the skin. 

Golden Benefits

Lifts and Firms:  Gold slows down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin.  It stimulates cellular growth of the basal layer to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells and provide a tightening effect.

Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles:  Delivered with the Gamma PGA, this superior hydrating formula locks in moisture for softer, more supple skin.

Reduces the Appearance of Sun Damage and Age Spots:  Since 1929 Gold has been successfully used to treat rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation.  Gold’s anti-inflammatory properties also decrease skin inflammation, thereby slowing down melanin secretion and reducing age spots.

 

Eradicates Free Radicals:  Gold fights off damaging free radicals to help prevent premature aging of the skin.

Provides a Golden Glow:  Creates luminous, radiant skin

THE UNIQUE DELIVERY SYSTEM THAT MAKES IT WORK:

GAMMA PGA- POLYGLUTAMIC ACID

Gamma PGA hydrates and prepares the skin and helps the gold penetrate.

ULTRASONIC NANO MIST

The UMO Facial Spa Nano Mist is ultrafine and coupled with its Ionic charge, it easily penetrates deeply into the skin, carrying with it the dissolved Gamma PGA and 24 Karat Gold.  The Nano Mist is up to 7X smaller than water droplets from a traditional steamer.  The Nano Mist also softens the epidermal layer of the skin, creating an optimal environment for moisture absorption.
