PhytoCellTech Argan- Revitalizing dermal stem cells to improve skin density
Dermal stem cells were identified only recently and were found to be able to renew themselves and to differentiate into dermal cell types like fibroblasts. However, with age, they become less active and decrease in number. As a result, elastin and collagen production drops, the skin loses its elasticity and firmness, and wrinkles appear. PhytoCellTech Arganis are made from stem cells of the Argan tree, one of the oldest tree species in the world. PhytoCellTech Argan was developed to improve the regenerative capacity of dermal skin cells. It is encapsulated in liposomes to improve its absorption by the skin. PhytoCellTech Argan was the very first active ingredient that is capable of both protecting and revitalizing human dermal stem cells to fight skin aging, right at the source. Studies show that PhytoCellTech Argan improves skin density, reduces wrinkles depth and improves skin firmness.
DermCom- Mimicking the activity of natural growth factor to repair the skin matrix.
DermCom is based on Crocus Chrysanthus bulb extract, can slow the aging process by stimulating communication between skin cells. DermCom was shown to stimulate Keratinocytes to secrete growth factors that could enhance the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the dermis. Its activity on fibroblasts was comparable to that of transforming growth factor (TGF-B), which activates the synthesis of ECM proteins (collagen and elastin). Study results show that DermCom significantly increased skin firmness.
