Cohesium from Silab Tightens the Skin Junction

November 17, 2008

Cohesion of the various epidermal layers is crucial to ensure homeostasis of the barrier function, limit excessive water loss and thereby guarantee good moisturization of the skin. Silab has developed Cohesium, an active ingredient purified from the tubers of Ophiopogon. According to Silab, Cohesium triggers the formation of tight junctions, increases the levels of Natural Moisturizing Factors in the stratum corneum, improves the cohesion of the upper layers of the epidermis and restructures the skin’s barrier function.
