A physical barrier between the inside and the outside, the skin is one of the most responsive organs to external aggressions, particularly to UV radiation. This latter strongly impacts the heart of skin cells, the DNA, leading to structural and functional alterations of the different skin layers.
Solastemis™ acts at the heart of the epidermis mechanics, by protecting the DNA of keratinocytes from UVA rays and boosting endogenous DNA repair system. It preserves the stem cells of the epidermis ensuring proper homeostasis for the skin’s first line of defense. It also offers a shield for the dermis by protecting key matrix proteins (collagen, elastin) from degradation.
Photoaging associated symptoms are visibly corrected: wrinkles are reduced, the microrelief is smoothed, the skin complexion appears brighter, more even and healthier.
Solastemis™ is derived from chayote (Sechium edule), a fruit cultivated and manually harvested on Reunion Island (French oversea territory), in the majestic Cirque of Salazie.
The extraction with a NaDES solvent makes an eco-designed and fully natural ingredient (99.85% content of natural origin according to ISO16128) associated with high biological performances.
