Gatuline In-Tense Fights the Signs of Aging

October 3, 2007

Gattefossé recently introduced its new active ingredient, Gatuline In-Tense. The material is said to reinforce the architecture of the dermis and fight the signs of aging. By stimulating the biomechanical functions of the fibroblasts, Gatuline In-Tense enhances density of the skin, leading to a reduction in roughness.

Gatuline In-Tense is a concentrated oily extract taken from the upper part of the spilanthes acmella plant (asteraceae family). It is the richness in alkylamides which gives all its strength to the active ingredient. These amides have proved to be excellent markers of reproducibility and activity.

Gattefossé collects the flower buds of mafane used for Gatuline In-Tense in South Africa. Concerned by the environment, Gattefossé is in full agreement with current expectations of its customers in regards of the ethics and the environment protection. Only the flower buds of the mafane are collected. The integrity of the plant is thus preserved, in order to allow a continuous development in time.
