MossCellTec No. 1 – Enhances cell nucleus function for resilient skin

Published: 15-May-2018

Moss tissue culture to improve cell nucleus health and fortify the skin

With MossCellTec No. 1, Mibelle Biochemistry offers an anti-ageing treatment that is based on a novel concept: cell nucleus health.

MossCellTec No. 1 supports cell nucleus health by improving the expression of protein markers that:

  • structure the nuclear envelope
  • enable the efficient transport of molecules into and out of the nucleus

Together, both allow for a proper communication between the nucleus and cytoplasm, which is essential for the cell functioning.

However, they are impaired by ageing. Therefore, preserving the cell nucleus health represents a novel strategy in the fight against ageing.

MossCellTec No. 1 has been developed from an extract of the cells of the Physcomitrella patens moss.

It is the first active ingredient on the market that is based on Biotechnologically produced moss which is obtained in a reproducible and sustainable way by tissue culture.

Mosses are among the first land plants to conquer the earth. Their extremely high resilience to a changing environment makes them of considerable interest in regard to fortifying our skin.

In vitro and clinical studies have shown that MossCellTec No. 1 helps the skin to adapt to fast climatic changes. This results in a significant increase in skin hydration, homogeneity and barrier function despite changing climatic conditions in just two weeks, as well as a reduction in wrinkle depth after just four weeks.

Therefore, by maintaining an efficient transport of the molecules into and out of the nucleus and by preserving the organisation of the nuclear envelope, the communication inside the cell is optimised and cells can adapt more quickly to the ever-changing environment, making our skin more resilient.

MossCellTec No. 1 is COSMOS approved.
