SILAB Cosmetics. The beauty of healthy skin.

AGREYNIST. Foil the natural processes of hair greying

AGREYNIST is an anti-free radical and pro-pigmenting active ingredient obtained by combining the efficacies of black oat (Avena strigosa) and spiny restharrow (Ononis spinosa), enabling the original colour of grey hair to be restored. It regulates the biological pathways causing hair to grey by combating oxidative stress and favoring repigmentation of the hair fibre.

Also, the structural quality of hair is improved. The number of grey hairs decreases in volunteers of Caucasian and Asian panels. With its detoxifying action, AGREYNIST is recommended in all care products for grey hair.

ERISIUM. Target cellular proteostasis for an anti-ageing performance

An anti-ageing active ingredient, ERISIUM maintains cellular proteostasis by preserving the health of the Endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This protein balance, which guarantees a firm and radiant skin, is altered during agwing. Obtained from co-products of rice (Oryza sativa L.), ERISIUM reactivates the protein repair pathway, i.e. the UPR pathway (unfolded protein response), which reduces the ER stress. It limits the inflammaging process and restores the matrix dynamics. Tested on mature skin (Caucasian and Asian), it improves the quality of the dermal matrix, attenuates wrinkles and revives complexion radiance.

ACNESIUM. The daily care for acneic skin

ACNESIUM is a natural active ingredient developed to attenuate the clinical signs of slight to moderate acne in adults. Produced from the pericarps of pomegranates (Punica granatum), it restores the homeostasis of acneic skin by targeting its four principal abnormalities: colonisation by C. acnes, deregulated activity of the sebaceous gland, inflammation and hyperkeratinisation. Its clinical efficacy has been demonstrated under control by dermatologists: decrease of GEA score (Global evaluation acne) and reduction of the number of lesions. Combining rapidity of action and efficacy, this high-tolerance care improves the skin’s general aspect and thus the patient’s quality of life.
