LABORATORY SKIN CARE®, INC. (LSC) has developed a novel method for co-engineering resveratrol together with its patented Hydroxysomes® dermal delivery platform.
Resveratrol is found in diverse plant species, most notably the skin of grapes and other berries. Found in red wine as source of the “French paradox”, this polyphenol shows significant biological activity and a number of benefits. 1
• Potent antioxidant, capable of both free radical scavenging and inhibition of oxidative enzyme activity
• Activates the longevity protein SIRT1 2
• Protects skin against damages caused by UVA radiation 3
The International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) recognizes resveratrol as an effective skin conditioner and antioxidant. Hydroxysomes® Resveratrol is stable in formulations. This powerful antioxidant has strong anti-inflammatory effect in the skin 4. In dermatological studies resveratrol has been shown to effectively help firm and lift the skin, and reduce age spots 5. It provides antioxidant protection to the skin, allowing it to detoxify and look healthy.
As skin ages or is damaged by many factors such as UV radiation, oxidation, physical damage or other signs of aging, a powerful antioxidant such as Hydroxysomes® Resveratrol provides continuous long lasting protection with its sustained release dermal delivery.
Hydroxysomes® Resveratrol also delivers calcium to the skin which enhances the effect of resveratrol. Delivering resveratrol and calcium simultaneously provides integrated anti-aging properties for younger looking skin.
ANTI-AGING EFFECTS OF CALCIUM: Calcium restores the skin’s normal balance by repairing the barrier function and maintaining the barrier integrity of stratum corneum (SC). A healthy skin barrier improves firmness, cellular cohesion, and hydration, allowing skin’s youthful appearance. Calcium plays a significant role in skin differentiation, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
