Bye, Bye, Bye! To Blemishes
January 31, 2019
Blemishes are due to numerous factors : androgenic hormones, environment, stress, lack of sleep, makeup, and many more.. Skin becomes unbalanced, resulting in hyper seborrhea (oily skin). Through lipase activity and P. acnes consumption, this increase of sebum leads to too much irritating fatty acids causing blemishes, scars, the skin to appear dull and more. To prevent blemishes, we can act on these different stages of the blemishes cascade: reduce sebum quantity, reduce lipase activity, inhibit P. acnes, soothe the skin.
PHLOROGINE™ BG PF is extracted from Laminaria Saccharina, a brown algae rich in phlorotannins that creates a barrier limiting herbivore eating and bacterial infections. The active reduces the sebum production, inhibits the lipase activity and detoxifies cells.
Clinical results: Reduces sebum excess by -29.3% in 28 days.
INCI: Aqua/Water (and) Butylene Glycol* (and) Laminaria Saccharina Extract *Plant Based, Renewable
CONTACTICEL™ is an extract of a microscopic red algae that lives on the surface of larger algaes in the sea, protecting their hosts from natural attacks.
It effectively reduces the sebum rate on skin exposed to a highly polluted atmosphere (ozone, microparticles, heavy metals), and also reduces squalene oxidation and has anti-inflammatory effect.
Clinical results: - 34% sebum after 56 days, at 1%.
INCI: Aqua/Water (and) Butylene Glycol* (and) Codium Tomentosum Extract Plant Based, Renewable
LIPACIDE™ C8G is a biovector of glycine that helps the skin maintain a well-balanced ecosystem. It helps to restore an acidic pH, fights the germs involved in acne prone skin and reduces sebum production for a well balanced skin.
Clinical results: Tested on the scalp, it effectively reduces oiliness, desquamation and irritation.
INCI: Capryloyl Glycine
Extracted from a protective tree from Madagascar, Harungana madagascariensis, traditionally used in leaf decoctions against asthma & skin disorders and leaf juice for wound healing. SUBLIGANA™ works on three pathways : inhibits P. acnes, protects against lipid peroxidation (which inflames the skin) and has a strong soothing effect.
Clinical results: -34% of whiteheads on acne prone skins after 28 days.
INCI: Glycerin - Aqua/Water (and) Harungana Madagascariensis Extract
A cocktail of Ceylon cinnamon, rich in tannins for an astringent effect, and glycine Aminovector™, to protects the skin’s ecosystem. On the skin, SEPICONTROL™ A5 reduces sebum production, microbial growth, free fatty acid release and controls inflammation. It acts better than salicylic acid on acne prone skins’ inflammation.
Clinical results: -78% comedones and -20% sebum after 8 weeks.
INCI: Capryloyl Glycine (and) Sarcosine (and) Cinnamomum Zeylanicum Bark Extract
