The skin is the biggest organ of our body, which acts as a protective barrier between us and the environment. The cosmetic industry is continuously researching new technologies and active ingredients that help to diminish the effects on the skin of both intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging is determined by our own metabolism, happening inevitably and it is characterised by smooth, dry, pale and finely wrinkled skin. In contrast, extrinsic aging is due to environmental factors that affect the skin such as pollution, free radicals, stress and ultraviolet (UV) radiation and it is associated with skin thickening, severe wrinkling and pigmentary changes.
Exposure to environmental insults, as well as the natural process of aging, contributes to the generation of multiple reactive species. These free radicals cause cellular damage by direct reaction with DNA, proteins and lipids. DNA damage contributes greatly to these age-associated skin changes and DNA lesions caused by UV radiation trigger photoaging of human skin.
Lipotec has introduced a new cosmetic active aimed at preventing this damage. Preventhelia® Solution is a molecular ingredient designed to neutralise the harmful effects of free radicals, thus producing a preventative effect against premature aging. As a photoprotectant active incorporated into formulations for daily use, Preventhelia® Solution is able to reverse and prevent the damage caused directly or indirectly by UV irradiation to DNA and proteins.
