An active plant shell to protect skin against light damages:
LightWaves Defense [JS+M]


Naolys, the French company specialised in plant cell culture presents a protecting active plant shell: LightWaves Defense [JS+M], made of Indian Jasmine cells containing a mangosteen extract to protect skin from damages induced by UV, blue light and infrared light

LightWaves Defense [JS+M] is made of whole plant cells of Indian jasmine (Jasminum sambac) containing not only their own active molecules but also γ-mangosteen extract to increase their activity. It combines two cutting-edge technologies: a controlled cell culture that boosts the synthesis of the active molecules inside whole plant cells, and, the delicate integration of a molecule inside those native cells.

According to in vitro test studies, LightWavesDefense [JS+M] showed a skin protection against three types of light radiations, UV, blue light and infrared light at three levels: cell DNA, extra-cellular matrix and microcirculation. Actually LightWavesDefense [JS+M] allows

  • to preserve longer the integrity of cell DNA,
  • to reinforce the production of three key components in the dermis (hyaluronic acid, collagens, elastin) and
  • to limit redness by decreasing the vasodilation (decrease of nitric oxide).

All the in vitro test studies have been run with exposure to the three types of light radiations: UV, IR and blue light.

A clinical study on 20 women using the product with two applications a day showed an improvement on ageing signs after 28 days of treatment (it improves radiance, suppleness, firmness, smoothness – declaration of the panel).

All tests were performed with a dispersion containing 20% cells, at a concentration of 0.5%.

Lightwaves Defense [JS+M] is not allergenic, preservative free, and can be used for any skincare applications (bodycare, face care, colour cosmetics), in any type of galenic. COSMOS registration and ISO 16128 certificate on request for any liquid form.
