Key Active Ingredients
THE 5 GROWTH FACTORS
EGF, IGF, FGF2, VEGF, FGF1
When we get older, our skin loses elasticity and volume. The onset of wrinkles does occur and once they appear they get deeper over time.Yet the skin does retain the ability to repair itself and regenerate itself.
The problem lies in the decrease, over time, of the production of some signaling proteins responsible for triggering this repair process.
EGFs (Epidermal Growth Factor) will signal that it’s time for your skin to start regenerating. The advantages are:
– Improves the tonicity of the skin, soften the skin, reduces the appearance of scars and lesions, induces the formation of a new epidermis. Like EGF, FGF1 and FGF2 (Fibroblast Growth Factor) are proteins that work directly with cells to induce them to repair and rejuvenate themselves.
The benefits are that it will reduce wrinkles, improve skin hydration, induce the production of collagen and elastin fibers as well as glycosaminoglycans.
VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) has an angiogenic effect on the skin (that is to say, promotes the production of new blood vessels).
Its advantages are that it will promote cellular oxygenation, smooth the microrelief and improve the radiance of the complexion and the diffusion of light.
– IGF (Insulin-like Growth Factor), also known as somatomedin, is a peptide hormone whose main action is to induce the proliferation of fibroblasts, to stimulate the synthesis of collagen and proteoglycans-2.
Somatomedin is close to proinsulin and actually contains two substances: IGF-1 and IGF-2. It is dependent on growth hormone.
(Cell Repair Peptide)
Acetyl hexapeptide-51 amide
Inspired by the type of jellyfish “Hydra”, an animal known to be immortal, scientists have discovered that these organisms reproduce their cells without genetic error in DNA, thanks to the actions of a specific peptide in the cell nuclei (FOX).
Human cells have a similar peptide (FOXO3A), associated with longevity in humans.
It protects the DNA and stimulates its repair, to reverse mutations and cellular aging.
Activated in the presence of cell damage to repair or destroy the cell, it also prevents DNA mutations on the daughter cells.
Scientists have reproduced the activity of FOXO3A in the skin, via this asset.
This action helps protect and reduce damage to DNA due to surrounding factors, reduce cell senescence and delay the visible signs of ageing.
