Silab Introduces New Ingredients

October 21, 2005

In order to improve skin resistance and limit the appearance of fine lines, Silab has introduced Elastonyl, an anti-stretch mark and anti-wrinkle ingredient that protects and repairs elastic and collagen tissue. Elastonyl combats the degradation of elastic tissue by inhibiting the expression of proteolytic enzymes such as MMP-1, MMP-2 and cathepsin L. This new ingredient favors the organization of the fibril network by stimulating the synthesis of collagen and fibrillin.
The company’s Exfolactive is a peeling booster that helps skin restore its exfoliation capacities by stimulating the activity of skin enzymes involved in the natural process of peeling.
A new concept of hydration, Aquaphyline, regulates the process of epidermal hydration by maintaining the ideal equilibrium between irrigation and retention. It improves water circulation from the dermis to the epidermis by stimulating the synthesis of aquaporins-3 and increases the epidermal water binding capacity.
