About the science, the active ingredient in Altar™ is SBD-4. SBD-4 is a patented extract from the root of the plant Angelica sinensis, which grows in the high altitudes of China, Japan, and Korea. SBD-4 has been demonstrated to do some rather remarkable things. One, it increases the microcirculation of the skin. The results of that are obvious, increased delivery of oxygen, increased delivery of nutrients and increased removal of unwanted metabolites through waste.

Two, SBD-4 is extremely rich in hyaluronic acid, which binds up to 100 times its weight in water, so it’s extremely hydrating.

Three, it’s extremely rich also in arginine, the amino acid that’s very important in maintaining and protecting and repairing the skin barrier. That’s the Reader’s Digest version of the science.

"Altar® has a tremendous role in treating some very difficult skin conditions, and I would include aging in that. Aging, dry skin, people with eczema, psoriasis, those people who are suffering from radiation dermatitis, and even those people who are having an adverse reaction topically to chemotherapy. Why? Well, those things all have three things in common, a breakdown in the skin barrier, dehydration, and some compromise in the microcirculation albeit different. Obviously, people with diabetes have a different microcirculation problem related to arterial sclerosis than say someone with psoriasis in which case it might be shunting."- Dr. Glassman, www.vampireskintherapy.com
