DSM Debuts Corneocare

November 6, 2013

Holistic approach to skin care.

DSM Personal Care recently launched its innovative Corneocare approach. According to the company, it promotes a holistic view to epidermal skin care and reveals the importance of a healthy, functioning epidermis in preparing the skin for a beautiful future. Building on recent insights into market trends and unmet consumer needs, DSM announces new developments relating to Corneocare ingredients. The highly potent skin energizer Revitalin PF has extended the portfolio; and breakthrough findings are reported for the all-natural Alpaflor Edelweiss. 
 
DSM’s unique Alpaflor Edelweiss extract succeeded in showing the importance of a strong barrier function for skin comfort and skin aging prevention. Recent in vitro data have already demonstrated how it stimulates key proteins in the epidermis responsible for the barrier structure, leading to a new level of skin protection and regeneration. DSM can now share exciting new in vivo results confirming how Alpaflor Edelweiss strengthens the skin’s natural protection barrier, making it more resistant to external stress factors.
These findings are complemented by a four-week consumer study which shows that Alpaflor Edelweiss provides a pleasant and youthful skin sensation. These combined results reflect DSM’s ongoing commitment to translate scientific findings at the genetic and molecular levels into tangible consumer benefits.
 
In response to people’s aspirations to truly fulfill their beauty potential, DSM’s next challenge was to understand in greater depth the mechanisms that underlie a glowing complexion. Maintaining a youthful, vibrant glow requires high levels of skin cell energy, and Corneocare contributes to a fresh, vibrant skin complexion by working on the most important skin energy mechanisms in the epidermis. Like many other biological processes, the skin’s energy levels follow an internal clock, known as the 24-hour circadian rhythm. During daytime hours in particular, levels of energy in the cells drop. This results in a loss of glow in the afternoon which skin can only recover during the night.
 
For the first time in the cosmetic industry, DSM researchers have used innovative Extracellular Flux Analysis technology to measure energy levels in mitochondria – the powerhouses of the cells. These tests confirmed that Revitalin PF, with its energizing actives produced by fermentation baker’s yeast, boosts the two fundamental bioenergetic processes: glycolysis and mitochondrial respiration. Revitalin PF therefore ensures the highest possible energy levels and a youthful, glowing complexion – all day long.
