Living in a city is like exposing oneself to the sum of most aggressive environmental factors: harmful light rays, stress, unbalanced food, pollution… No wonder women and men alike feel the need to supplement their skin with smart actives capable of boosting their cells and reinforcing their natural defense system.
COMPENSATING THE LACK OF VITAMIN D
Homo urbanicus now spends on average 80% of his time indoors. The result? Strong deficiencies in Vitamin D, the very one that plays a fundamental role in skin homeostasis and cellular differentiation. Developed by Technoble R&D, a white peony flowers extract rich in kaempferol glycoside, turns out to have similar virtues to those of the sunshine vitamin. WhitepeoD activates the Vitamin D Receptors Activation and thus stimulates the production of tight junctions (occludin/claudin), leading to an improvement of the barrier function. Moreover, tests have shown that the product helps reduce trans-epidermal water loss of dry, rough skin in individuals suffering from a lack of vitamin D.

ANTI-POLLUTION, SKIN BRIGHTENER
Extracted from Japanese sunflower sprout, Sunfler is an innovative skin-brightener. It inhibits the pigmentation induced not only by UV rays but also by pollution. The product has been extensively tested in vivo and in vitro at 1 %.
• Inhibitory effect on melanin synthesis and tyrosinase activity induced by UV and pollution (PAH)
• Inhibitory effect on expression of Frizzled gene (60% ) and the β-catenin mRNA (40%) induced by pollution- genes involved in excessive production of melanin induced by pollution.
• Inhibition on skin pigmentation caused by UV radiation (in vivo)
PROTECTION AGAINST OXIDATIVE STRESS
Made from an organic certified Damas Rose, Rosaqueen protects and promotes skin defenses against oxidative stress. The different tests have shown that it enhances anti-oxidative functions (catalase, superoxide dismutase), limits lipid peroxidation, and promotes detoxification of cells (proteasome activity).
