How Topical Products Work
Your skin is the largest organ of your body, designed to protect against external harms, regulate body heat, and manage nutrient levels and water loss. It’s composed of 3 layers:
- The epidermis, the outermost layer, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone.
- The dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.
- The deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made of fat and connective tissue.
For a topical product to work it not only has to penetrate the skin but get absorbed too.
Skin Penetration represents the amount of a topically applied ingredient that exists between the top layer and bottom layer of your skin, during penetration the body does not yet absorb the ingredient, and it cannot affect the body systems.
Skin Absorption occurs when the topically applied ingredient penetrates the skin barrier.
The active ingredients in Steel Fit + Tone™ are permeable, meaning they both penetrate and are absorbed by skin cells where they are processed and circulated.

Proven Active Ingredients
Unislim: Patented slimming and body contouring ingredient that helps reduce localized excess fat (Patent # FR 0306063). A hydroglycolic solution combining Coffea arabica and Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis), Unislim™ speeds up the depletion of lipids and blocks their entry into adipocytes.*
Collagen: The main structural protein in human connective tissues, most notably in our skin. When added into cosmetic products, collagen can help build back elasticity in skin that depletes due to aging, diet, and environmental stressors. Collagen encourages the renewal of cells, with the result being firmer, plumper, more youthful-looking skin.*
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38: A popular cosmetic material for anti-wrinkle and anti-aging properties, this peptide helps to rebuild the skin from the inside where needed, soothing wrinkles and skin; particularly on the forehead and crow’s feet. In-vitro studies have found a matrikine-like effect that stimulates the synthesis of six major proteins, including collagen I, II, IV, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid, and laminin 5.*
Gotu Kola: A common ingredient for skincare, Gotu Kola combines amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and phytochemicals to help the skin combat signs of aging and protect itself from free radical damage. Gotu Kola also improves blood circulation, helps keep skin tighter and firmer, and boosts the formation of collagen and skin tissues.*
Glaucine: Functioning as an anti-aging ingredient, this amino acid can improve moisture retention, increase collagen production, and promote skin repair and regeneration.*
Coenzyme A + L-Carnitine: Induces a “One Way Fatty Acid Pump” to release fat cells.*
Caffeine: A lipolysis promoting agent, breaking down fat, and other lipids while helping to stimulate the skin.*
Forskolin: Made from the root of a plant in the mint family, Forskolin accelerates lipolysis through the activation of hormone-sensitive lipase.*
Shea Butter: Rich in vitamin E, this intensive butter nourishes to combat dryness and flaking, quickly absorbing into the skin.*
Cocoa Butter: A rich natural fat derived from the cacao beans contained inside the pods of the Cocoa/Cacao Tree. When used topically, Cocoa Butter naturally soothes dry, sensitive skin while reducing and preventing the appearance of scars and unwanted marks. Cocoa butter is also believed to have photo-protective properties that protect against harmful UV radiation.*
Aloe Vera: Offers many benefits and is suited for all skin types, mainly dry, damaged, broken, sensitive, and irritated skin. Aloe Vera offers anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, humectant, and soothing, anti-itch qualities for the skin.*
