At In-Cosmetic Paris 2016 Lessonia launched a new active ingredient based on marine glycobiology – Fucoreverse™ which has been clinically proven to significantly reduce the depth of wrinkles.
It all begins with algae from the French Iroise Sea – truly unique molecules in a unique habitat. Algae living in the Iroise Sea have developed a defense system enabling it to resist the extreme conditions such as storms, ocean currents and very high tides. The fucoidan structure in the cell walls of the laminaria plays a protective and restorative role in rebuilding the tissues after a storm. The capacity of these molecules to protect and repair cells was the source of inspiration for Lessonia.
In-Vitro testing demonstrated that Fucoreverse stimulates Type 1 collagen synthesis and fibroblast proliferation. The fucoidans blocking the enzymes responsible for the deterioration of the extracellular matrix as well as the pro-inflammatory cytokines which damage the collagen.
Panel testing demonstrated a reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles. After 28 days of a twice daily treatment of a cream using 1.5% of Fucoreverse, 70% of volunteers observed a very significant reduction in the main wrinkles compared with placebo.
Fucoreverse is a water soluble active that is preserved with benzyl alcohol and dehydroacetic acid. It is china compliant.
