The product combines hyaluronic acid (HA) complex with salvia haenkei patented extract, Haenkenium, which aims to provide an antioxidant effect, protect the skin form premature ageing, contrast photoageing, restore barrier function and skin hydration and alleviate skin irritation.
According to IBSA Italia, it combines two different molecular weights; the high molecular weight HA creating a protective effect and the low molecular weight contributing to optimal skin hydration.
The salvia haenkei, also known as prawn sage, helps to provide protection from free radicals, the company claims. IBSA Italia also states that the product is suitable for use after aesthetic treatments including bioremodelling, dermal fillers and peels and can be incorporated into a patient’s everyday skincare routine.
Iveta Vinklerova, sales and marketing director said, “This new discovery may have a bright future in both beauty and medicine. Clinical research revealed prawn sage extract’s ability to slow down cellular ageing.”
As well as Hyaluronic Acid and Ectoin, it contains Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM), an organosulfide with important photoprotective, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties:
- with a cytoprotective effect on keratinocytes after exposure to UVB rays and counteracts UVA damage to fibroblasts;
- acting as an ROS scavenger;
- regulating the production of pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1 alpha and reducing UV-induced erythema.
