A New Cell Scaffold That Rejuvenates the Skin

March 4, 2008

KiOsmetine-CG is a clinically proven, high-added-value ingredient from vegetal origin. This patented biopolymer has demonstrated the following benefits: restores elasticity and firmness, enhances dynamic and static moisturizing processes, protects against external factors, stimulates metabolic and defense performance. 

Insights on the mechanisms underlying the rejuvenating role of KiOsmetine-CG were recently obtained thanks to two 16-week clinical studies. The first study gave results on five key parameters tested on the forearm, evidencing elasticity and smoothing.
   
The second study evidenced an anti-wrinkle effect. KitoZyme is developing biopolymers in close collaboration with industry experts from laboratories (Dermscan, Idea, BIOalternatives) and major universities (Dermatopathology Department of the University Hospital of Liège). They are designed to address customers’ desires for vegetal potent actives. More info: www.kitozyme.com
