To cope with an aggression, several biological systems (cutaneous, immune, vascular) cooperate to revitalise cellular interactions indispensable for cutaneous regeneration. The fibroblast in particular plays a pivotal role by interconnecting the three systems via the secretion of a pool of growth factors. These factors are placed under the term “fibroblast regenerating complex”.
Even though this dynamic process of regeneration exists for the entire lifetime, original in vitro modelling studies from SILAB Research, in collaboration with two prestigious international research laboratories, demonstrated that it is altered with ageing.
Regenerating anti-ageing effect
Based on these discoveries, SILAB developed REGENIXIR®, an anti-ageing natural active ingredient that provides a rapid and global regeneration to mature skin.
To that end, it revitalises the interconnectivity of the three biological systems:
- the cutaneous system: matrix restructuring and epidermal renewal are improved;
- the vascular system: formation of a vascular network is restored;
- the immune system: pro-regenerating macrophages population is increased.
Its cosmetic benefits are multiple. Tested at 2.5% in an emulsion in Caucasian and Asian panels, REGENIXIR® enhances the skin quality as of 21 days of application:
- improved skin biomechanical properties with a significant increase of the skin firmness, tonicity and elasticity;
- reduced appearance of the crow’s feet wrinkles;
- attenuated under-eye circles;
- revived complexion radiance (effects on reflection, pink colour, olive colour and luminosity).
All these benefits continue after 42 days of treatment and are perceived by the volunteers themselves.
A yeast with health benefits
REGENIXIR® meets the market and consumers requirements in terms of efficacy and safety, whilst also being natural.
Indeed, in the framework of developing this natural active ingredient, SILAB has focused on the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Widely used in the food industry, this biotech material is also recognised by the medical and scientific community for its countless properties: richness in nutrients, capacity to stimulate energy production and immune defences, etc.
SILAB has therefore put the health benefits of S. cerevisiae to beneficial use by extracting oligo-glucans that can restore the interconnectivity of the cutaneous, immune and vascular systems for a regenerating anti-aging effect.
Combining high efficacy, transversality and safety, REGENIXIR® is an innovative natural active ingredient enabling the rapid and overall regeneration of mature skin to restore its quality.
