Perturbations of skin barrier and a slow down of its regeneration are typical signs of mature skin. REFORCYL®, which is approved by Ecocert, helps regenerate the barrier function of mature skin.
The plant Gynostemma pentaphyllum from the Far East activates LXR and stimulates the synthesis of epidermal lipids; the skin barrier is restored from within.
The Western plant Cistus incanus strengthens the reduced antioxidative defence system found in mature skin. Reactive oxygen species are neutralised, thus preventing further damage of the skin barrier.
The amino acid Glutamin acts as metabolic fuel and re-activates the decelerated metabolism of ageing skin cells. REFORCYL® shows a five-fold efficacy against the appearance of mature skin; hydration, firmness, wrinkle depth, elasticity and skin smoothness are all markedly improved.
The efficacy of REFORCYL® has been proven in several studies:
* Activation of LXR in human primary Keratinocyes (in-vitro study)* Activation of key enzymes involved in epidermal lipid synthesis (in-vitro study)
* Improvement of hydration, firmness, elasticity and smoothness of skin (in-vivo study)
* Visible improvement of wrinkle depth in eye area (in-vivo study)
REFORCYL® is designed for mature skin and is suitable for any kind of anti-ageing product. It is water soluble and can be easily incorporated into cosmetic formulations such as gels and emulsions.
