As skin ages, collagen and elastin fibers, that form the extracellular network, become disordered, unstructured and sparse. The dermis loses density and skin shows aging signs:
The skin elasticity decreases and wrinkles appear.
The microrelief structure becomes more anisotropic resulting in a loss of softness and velvety touch.
Keeping the skin inner structure organized is essential for a younger looking skin.
An exciting area of advanced cosmetic ingredients are plant stem cells which are undifferentiated cells
Citrustem™ (Citrus aurantium stem cell extract) is an orange stem cell which is a rich source of effective antioxidants, such as neohesperidin and naringin.
Citrustem™ helps to:
- Organize and redensify the dermal structure
- Restore the extracellular network improving cells adhesion
- Recover the quality of youthful skin
Under the cell extract treatment, the synthesis of collagen and other key elements of the extracellular matrix grow.
In a clinical study, a group of 20 women between 41 and 55 years old applied a 3% formula of Citrustem™ twice a day for 56 days against a placebo formula. After this period, they observed, among other beneﬁts, a 17.5% increase in skin elasticity.
Citrustem™ stem cells are included in Estilad™ Anti-aging Stem Cell Serum, Eye Contour, Skin Booster Stem Cell Serum and Moisturising Stem Cell Serum.
