6% Free and liposomedglycolic acid, ergothioneineand Vitamins C + E encapsulated in liposomes,Eryngium maritimun stemcells , boswellic acid, hyaluronic acid and soy extract.
Apply the cream on facial skin with a gentle massage until completely absorbed. It can be applied in the morning, at night or as often as required.
Glycolic acid (GA) is an active ingredient (alpha-hydroxy acid) of natural origin, obtained from sugar cane, with high moisturizing, refreshing and regenerating properties.
The formula is completed with a unique combination of assets that give:
Antioxidant Properties (thanks to ergothioneine and vitamins C + E encapsulated in liposomes)
Regenerating properties (plant stem cells due to Eryngium maritimun)
Soothing and moisturizing properties (from boswellic acid, hyaluronic acid, soy extract ...)
The plant Boswellia serrata, also known as “Shallaki”, has been widely used since ancient times as anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
Boswellia serrata contains triterpenoids, called boswellic acids, which are powerful inhibitors of 5–lipoxygenase. This enzyme gives rise to inflammatory and allergic pathways.
L-ergothioneine is recognized as a low-molecular-weight, powerful and stable antioxidant consumed by humans in their diet that accumulates in cells subjected to high levels of oxidative stress. It is a natural amino acid of plant origin present in the skin. The skin has specific receptors for Ergothioneine, which are present in fibroblasts and keratinocytes (receptor OCTN-1) . In the skin, it is part of the defense system together with vitamins C and A, thus providing a synergistic effect on the protective function of the skin. Recently, it has been shown that Ergothioneine has a high antioxidant and anti-radical power.
A plant stem cell is a cell with the ability to multiply and differentiate in order to create new plant tissues.
Commonly known as sea holly, it is a plant native to European coastlines that grows preferably in sandy soils, which makes it extraordinarily adaptive and environmentally resistant.
• Regenerating action
Up to 19% increase in new basal membrane keratinocytes after three days of application.
• Stimulates the formation of epidermal growth factors
Favors keratinocyte regeneration and promotes fibroblast proliferation.
• Restructuring action
Stimulates the formation of new collagen by 37% and of three types of proteoglycans; perimembrane- by 33%, transmembrane- by 40% and matrix proteoglycans by 38%.
Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid obtained from sugar cane, grapes and beetroot. Due to its very low molecular weight, its skin penetration is very high. It is a very versatile active ingredient and its uses in dermatology include, apart from aging, keratinization disorders, pigmentation changes, acne, folliculitis, and actinic and seborrheic keratosis.
Although its exact mechanism of action remains unknown, it has been shown that glycolic acid improves these disorders through thinning of the horny layer, promotion of epidermolysis, dispersion of melanin in the basal layer, and increased collagen synthesis in the dermis.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in all living organisms, it is a universal component of the spaces between tissue cells (extracellular space) and makes up the matrix. It is a glycosaminoglycan with a key function in skin hydration due to its water-retaining capacity.
