Telomeres and the Science of Reversing the Signs of Aging

Since the turn of the century, major developments in cellular biology and other sciences have made a direct impact on the cosmetics and beauty field. The way researchers understand the aging process and the cellular science behind it have parlayed into techniques of potentially slowing, even reversing signs of aging. It may sound like science fiction, but it begins with the telomere, a natural portion of the chromosome that contains DNA code. It brings homeostasis, or balance, to the chromosome. Continue reading
