After suffering scratches, cuts and injuries our skin has the ability to regenerate. This skill is to replace the top layer of cells, after having repaired the membranes and fibers system. After this process we may notice a pigmentation of the interested area (post-inflammatory pigmentation).
To support this mechanism properly we need to improve the fibrous skin structure, stimulating fibroblast activity as well as antibacterial and anti-inflammatory function.
glycosaminoglycan located in the dermis, it is part of the fundamental substance in which fibroblasts are submerged. Its structure is jelly and with the ability to call back and retain a great amount of water. In that way it fills the cavities of the dermis and gives firmness to the skin.
on our skin it is like an humectant gel that we have on the stratum corneum and protects from dehydration. Collagen is a structural protein and constitutes the main fibrous element of skin, tendons and cartilages. It is responsible for the mechanical protection of the organism from the skin, well-being and skin condition and for maintaining tissue elasticity and tone with wrinkles minimalization.
Vitamin E :
also known as tocopherol, it has an important antioxidant function and protects the body against the effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. Cell membrane contains lipids whose actions help to prevent oxidation. Tocopherol is a fat soluble vitamin well conveyed in the lipid composition of the skin as such, where it operates as a membrane stabilizer protecting the same against damage by free radicals. Vitamin E and A molecular complexes are particularly stable in cosmetic formulations, so that they’re definitely effective in anti-ageing treatments.
is extracted from the grape seeds and possesses significant antioxidant properties due to the presence of polyphenols and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It protects skin from free radicals, weathering and then from premature aging.
Natural Moisturizing Factor. It’s made up of several amino acids, urea and lactic acid (in the form of sodium salt), sugars and salts in low concentration; all of them are constituent elements of the water-soluble compound within the hydrolipidic film that covers the entire surface of the skin and are capable of retaining water in the horny layer, mantaining our skin naturally hydrated. The role of the NMF has been underrated for a long time, but its components are highly efficient humectants and allow an adequate hydration of the stratum corneum. Modern cosmetics consider necessary the use of this natural moisturizing complex in skin care products as its hydrosoluble structure makes its removal easy, maintaining its functional action.
Leontopodium alpinum meristem cell culture:
plant stem cells facilitate the cutaneous rejuvenation thanks to their regenerating totipotency (or cell potency), in other words they stimulate every cell of the body and enable the natural tissue repair process. Among the most employed species we get the Leontopodium Alpinum, whose staminal cells have a double function: they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and help decrease cell ageing by preventing the hyaluronic acid degradation.
Syringa Vulgaris (Lilac) Leaf Cell:
its stem cells exert a supervision on the control mechanisms regulating sebum production through the 5α-reductase inhibition (local testosterone activator), the reduction of inflammation and bacteriostatic action against propionibacterium acnes.
