Silab Debuts Cohesium

November 30, -0001

Cohesium, the latest active ingredient from Silab, reinforces the cohesion of the upper layers of the epidermis by tightening the intercellular junctions, thus restructuring the barrier function and guaranteeing good moisturization in personal care products, according to the company. Numerous studies have shown that the intercellular junctions and, in particular, the tight junctions regulate the permeability of the paracellular spaces and limit “water leakage.” To reinforce these junctions, the company has developed Cohesium from ophiopogon tubers, a plant that can withstand drought thanks to the presence of mucilages, substances well known for their hydrophilic properties. It is ideal for restructuring and moisturizing products. More info: www.silab.fr
