ARGANYL PW LS 9830 is a titrated extract of sustainably sourced leaves of the Argan oil tree. The argan tree (Argania spinosa) is an endemic tree from South West Morocco. The flavonoids contained in the leaves of the argan tree have been isolated, purified, and concentrated to produce ARGANYL® PW LS 9830.

For many years, the cosmetics industry has focused on intrinsic skin aging proposing regular solutions to reverse various age-related effects. Nevertheless, signs of aging are largely resulting from “environmental” sources, meaning all the external factors that affect our skin’s quality and youthfulness. These factors are numerous (pollution, UV exposure, etc…), omnipresent in our everyday life, and inevitable. They trigger a series of oxidative reactions and have dramatic impacts on our skin, causing accelerating skin aging. Arganyl®, an active ingredient derived from Argan leaves, is proven to be effective against these external stressors.

ARGANYL PW LS 9830 acts at two levels:

  • by inhibiting free radicals: highly produced during the skin aging phenomenon, they also provoke a stimulation of MMP production by fibroblasts. The anti-free radical activity of ARGANYL™ limits this process.
  • by inhibiting MMPs and collagenase
