Key Active Ingredients for the anti ageing effect
Acetyl octa peptide-3
Of synthetic origin, it is an analogue of the end of SNAP-25 N terminal, elongation of ARGIRELINE, peptide, also called “Botox-like”.
Mechanism of action is during transmission between neurons, the fixation of the neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) is accompanied by a depolarization of cells leading to muscle contraction (expression wrinkle). Fixation of the peptide on the receptor inhibits depolarization* and leads to muscle relaxation giving off the anti ageing effect.
The depth of wrinkles caused by over-stimulation of the facial muscles is reduced. This is a topical alternative to injections that will give a more rested and relaxed look alike face.
*Depolarization: the depolarization of a cell refers to the transition passage of the potential of the membrane from a negative value, called rest, to a positive value.
EXTRACT OF ACMELLA OLERACEA
Acmella oleracea extract
This medicinal plant is composed mainly of Spilanthol which has a myorelaxant property, that is to say which slows the cutaneous micro-contractions undergone daily and involuntarily, resulting in the formation of expression lines.
This active also induces a stimulation of the contractile force of the fibroblasts (increased cell / collagen fiber interaction) which will reorganize and strengthen the collagen network.
The skin is relaxed, smoothed and firmed resulting in the appearance of anti ageing.
