Description

Benefits

Skin Care

Used in body care, color cosmetics and facial care applications.

  • Ex vivo studies show that lipigenine may help boost skin lipid synthesis (ceramides, cholesterol, fatty acids)
  • May help favor lipid transportation and secretion by promoting lamellar bodies ex vivo
  • May help target cholesterol synthesis (boosts HMG-CoA reductase enzyme expression ex vivo) – in stress condition, lipigenine may help recover lipidic homeostasis
  • Displays soothing property
  • Provides visible results on stratum corneum protection after detergent stress and on skin beautification (radiance, hydration, tonicity, elasticity)
Sun Care

Used in after-sun applications.

  • Ex vivo studies show that lipigenine may help boost skin lipid synthesis (ceramides, cholesterol, fatty acids)
  • May help favor lipid transportation and secretion by promoting lamellar bodies ex vivo
  • May help target cholesterol synthesis (boosts HMG-CoA reductase enzyme expression ex vivo) – in stress condition, lipigenine may help recover lipidic homeostasis
