Allow your skin to rest, relax, revive and rejuvenate as under the shade of the date palm trees.
Life from 2,000-year-old date palm seed
By Steven Erlanger, The New York Times, June 13, 2005
"The wind ruffles the leaves of the date sapling in its planter, and Dr. Elaine Soloway quickly shields it. "There’s only one plant like this in the world, and I’m still worried about it," she says. Methuselah — that is the sapling’s name — is indeed unique. In 2005, Soloway, from Kibbutz Ketura in the Arava, germinated it from a 2,000-year-old date seed found at Masada.
For the past two millennia, since approximately the time of the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Romans, in 66-73 C.E., the seed lay dormant, until Soloway and her team breathed life into it, making it the oldest seed ever to germinate….."

DARK CIRCLE REDUCTION and ROSACEA RELIEF
Affecting microcirculation via constriction of blood vessels to optimize blood and serum flow and prevent of their local accumulation.
Alpha 2 Adrenergic Receptors Activation and Vasoconstriction
The adrenergic receptors are metabotropic (i.e. influencing metabolism) G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR). Many types of cells possess these receptors, and the binding of an agonist (activator) will generally cause a sympathetic response.
An agonistic effect on the alpha-2 adrenergic receptor of smooth muscle cells may result in a vaso-constrictive effect — meaning, the blood vessels in which these cells and receptors are present will constrict and limit the pooling of blood which may result in improved, homogenous appearance of the skin in that area and reduction of the dark circles and rosacea symptoms.
IBR-CalmDeAge® showed a significant activity as an alpha-2A adrenergic receptor agonist, potentially affecting the capillary blood vessels constriction.
A modified Het-Cam Irritation model was used to evaluate irritation reduction in pre-irritated tissue.
The key measure is the time to appearance of irritation symptoms.
IBR-CalmDeAge® at 3% reduced pre-induced irritation by SLS by at least 50%.
The alleviation of dark circles and rosacea was demonstrated in vivo
IBR-CalmDeAge®, an extract from palm date (Phoenix dactylifera) seeds. IBR’s extraction process preserves the inherent botanical capital of the date seed, delivering to the skin.
