Stone Extract by LIBoil

February 14, 2006

Stone Extract by LIBoil
Used for Anti-Aging
l LIBiol introduced a new stone extract derived from hematite. Hematite can be found raw or polished and is widely used for the creation of jewels. The stone extract is rich in iron (an oligo-element not largely used in cosmetics until today) and has been tested on human fibroblasts to evaluate its anti-aging properties.
Tests have shown Héma’Tîte has a dose-dependent action, which is four to 16 times more powerful than TGF ß, a benchmark growth factor that stimulates pro-collagen synthesis. This active will increase the maturation of the pro-collagen (and so increase the synthesis of functional collagen), by stimulating the activity of prolylhydroxylase, according to the company. This active ingredient helps to optimize production of good quality and functional collagen by filling in wrinkles in-depth, for a plumping-up effect on the skin. More info: +33 4 72 22 98 00.
