KEY BENEFITS

Green Tea extract was shown to inhibit two key subtypes of MMP (collagenase and elastase) at surprisingly low concentration.

Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) of green tea, Sesame oil and the Complex of Vitamins E + C from Shea Butter act like a shield preventing collagen breakdown and DNA damage neutralizing free radicals from environmental factors such as UV Radiation, air pollution and smoking. UV radiation also causes thinning of the epidermis.

Organic Cistus Ladanifer hydrosol enriched with Hyalouronic Acid, alleviates wrinkles, since one of its effects is to “plump up” skin cells and erase fine lines due to its ability to increase fibroblasts vivability to produce more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Enhances consistency and density of skin tissue, restoring elacticity. Provides moisture and helps skin retain it for up to 24-hours.

Sesamin is the most prominent lignan compound found in sesame seeds, in synergy with Rice Bran oil which is rich in inositol and gamma oryzanol, confer antioxidant and antiinflammatory effects while noutish skin’s natural barrier.

Balanced Matrix Metalloproteinases Expression

Skin matrix is a framework that holds the skin together and consists mainly of collagen and elastin. The skin matrix is responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties, including firmness, strength, suppleness and elasticity. On one hand, skin matrix is continuously synthesized by fibroblasts by producing Collagen and Elastin. On the other hand, whenever it is damaged, malformed or worn out, skin matrix is broken down by the enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) and then recycled. If breakdown/recycling stops, damaged matrix will accumulate, leading to skin imperfections.

In a healthy, youthful skin, the synthesis and degradation of the matrix are in balance: so for best results, we should control MMPs while stimulating collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid biosynthesis. Inflammation increases the levels of MMP enzymes whereas anti-inflammatory agents have the opposite effect. Pain and inflammation are the body’s way of saying “help”. While it is important to understand the underlying causes, painkillers can help to calm down excessive and harmful inflammation and take the body out of ‘emergency’ mode.

Solution Steps:

  1. Antioxidants to Fight Reactive Oxygen Species (Free Radicals) Damage that stimulate the synthesis of MMP.
  2. Inhibition of MMP enzymes.
  3. Increase Fibloblasts’s Activity.
  4. Boost the anti-inflammatory activity.

Cistus Ladaniferus

Cistus Ladaniferus

On the peninsula of Halkidiki, according to legend, during a council in Mount Olympus, the 12 Gods decided that the Rockrose plant (aka Cistus) was to heal warriors wounded in battle. This decision annoyed the goddesses, as they were confident that the plant with delicate pink blossoms would be more appropriate for enhancing beauty, internally and externally. The result of the council was to attribute to Cistus both characteristics, therapeutic and cosmetic. Unquestionably, the ancient-world herbs were very popular. Especially the resin of Cistus, called labdanum, was famous in the Mediterranean region both as a cosmetic and as treatment for skin infections. The Rock-rose flower water, derived from the distillation of its branches, is an excellent skin regeneration substance. Its high energy content is said to enhance mental activity.
