Soliance Debuts Slimming Ingredient

February 12, 2013

Over time, internal and external factors affect body shape. Age, hormones, low physical activity and an unhealthy diet are some of the factors that lead to an increase of fat storage and loss of shape. To combat the appearance of increased fat, Soliance selected a special microalgae, Dysmorphococcus globosus, to extract an ingredient with slimming properties: Pro-DG.

According to the company, Pro-DG provides a dual action: the inhibition of lipids storage by stopping triglyceride synthesis; as well as the stimulation of lipolysis by stimulation of cAMP rate and glycerol release. It targets adipose tissue and can be applied on the thighs or the abdomen. A dosage of 3% is recommended in cosmetic formulas.
