VEGETABLE STEM CELLS OF CELERY: This precious extract contains Sparc proteins that stimulate the production of new collagen and promote the optimal organization of collagen. It improves skin density and visibly reduces the depth and number of wrinkles as well as protects the skin’s natural collagen and DNA from damage caused by oxidative stress.
CROSS LINKED HYALURONIC ACID: A gel based cross-linked hyaluronic acid biotechnologically engineered mixed with UREA. This type of Hyaluronic acid is more resistant to the enzymatic action of hyaluronidases; therefore, it dissolves very slowly, remaining intact on the skin’s surface for a more prolonged period. This increases the hydrating capacity of the acid as well as its protecting and lifting action.
HYDROLYZED GRAPE SKIN: The skin protects grapes from overexposure to UV, from attacks by pathogens, and from adverse weather conditions and environmental pollution. Red grape biophenols work on inhibiting the activity of membrane metalloproteinases (MMP2) in different cell lines. MMP2 (also called collagenase or gelatinase A) are one of the causes of the degradation of collagen and other skin proteins (such as insoluble elastin). Without these essential proteins, elasticity and skin tone are lost therefore leading to the onset of wrinkles.
NICOTINAMIDE: Niacinamide (vitamin B3) is a very stable vitamin that offers a wide range of topical benefits. It has an opacifying and depigmenting power and helps DNA self-repair in human keratinocytes while regulating the production of sebum.
RAPHANUS SATIVUS (RADISH) SPROUT EXTRACT: This extract works on protecting the chromatin conformation in the nucleus through an epigenetic mechanism to activate rapid DNA self-repair. This radish extract therefore functions as both direct and indirect antioxidants.
ACETYL TETRAPEPTIDE 2: This active ingredient contributes to reverse the signs of aging and drastically improve the quality and appearance of mature skin by promoting the synthesis of collagen and elastin. It also improves the firmness and tone of the skin by reinforcing cellular cohesion for a more youthful appearance.
MEDIUM HYALURONIC ACID PM: A key characteristic of this polymer is its ability to bind a large amount of water molecules within the skin. In the extracellular base substance, the highly hydrated hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastic fibers in dermal cells.
