THE EXPOSOMIAL URBAN PHOTO-STRESS
Addressing the combined effect of UV rays and pollution
UV, pollution, psychological stress, lifestyle, … We are exposed, throughout our life span, to a large number of factors impacting our health. Most of the ingredients address one stressor at the time. But recent studies have shown that combined exposure to UV rays and pollution, the Urban Photo-Stress, produces negative synergies. Since the Urban Photo-Stress will not stop in the coming years, we have to prepare and adapt our skin.
THE BIO-INSPIRED SOLUTION
Leveraging a resilient and adaptogen microalgae
Adopting a biomimetic approach, we were inspired by a resilient and adaptogen red microalgae, Porphyridium cruentum, capable of protecting itself to survive in extreme environments for millions of years. By exploring the defense mechanisms of red microalgae elaborated millions years ago and shared with humans, we have designed Renouvellance™ able to activate the skin’s natural defenses response and shield cells to better face external stressors. Obtained thanks to our sustainable patented technology, Renouvellance™ contains a high content in 2 synergic compounds: PHYCOERYTHRIN, a pink antioxidant pigment able to absorb light energy and boost natural defenses & EXOPOLYSACCHARIDES, a marine polymer able to chelate heavy metal and maintain cell’s structure.
We have demonstrated through in-vitro and ex-vivo assays that Renouvellance™ has a powerful protective effect against the Urban Photo-Stress: reduces the formation of sunburn cells, protects cells against DNA damage caused by in UV rays and urban pollutants, reduces oxidative stress and improves skin’s homeostasis.
Renouvellance™ reduces the formation of Sunburn Cells by 88%*
With SPF 30 cream - 100%* less Sunburn Cells
With 1.8% Renouvellance™ - 88%* less Sunburn Cells
Significative: * p<0.05 (95%) - Protocol: Test on Reconstructed Human Epidermis irradiated with UVB & UVA. Measurement of sunburn cells.
