Aging brings into play several physiological processes which modify and alter the skin’s functions and structures. These are induced by extrinsic factors, such as UV radiation and pollution, but also intrinsic factors specific to each individual. All cutaneous structures are affected by these changes, from the epidermis to the hypodermis.
The hypodermis, the deepest layer of the skin, undergoes changes in its structure. The quality and quantity of adipose tissue in the body, also in the face, changes with age. Adipocytes, the cells constituting this tissue, are particularly affected by these transformations. Facial morphology changes and imbalance of volume is observed, with sagging of the skin visible in the lower part of the face, loss of firmness, hollows beneath the eyes: the Adip’aging concept. This is characterized by decreased subcutaneous tissue related to adipocyte atrophy, together with a decline in new lipid storage. The two most affected areas are the V-shape: facial contours, and the Y-shape: eyes and neck.
The dermis and epidermis, the outermost structures, also undergo age-related changes. Cell communication and cell metabolism become slower, with weakened structural cohesion. Wrinkles and fine lines start to appear, as a result of these changes.
To overcome these transformations, it is essential to act on adip’aging, by targeting the hypodermis thanks to the regulation of age-related micro-inflammatory phenomena which disrupt adipgenisis, and the stimulation of the production of new intracellular lipids. This new strategy, together with strengthening the upper layers of the epidermis, is the key to restoring plumper, youthful and balanced skin.
ReVYskin is an aqueous extract obtained from subcritical water extraction (SolaGreen Superfluids Technology) from organic goji berries (Lycium barbarum) and stabilized in organic vegetable glycerin. Solagreen Superfluids Technology is a Unique High-Performance Technology, allowing to combine complementary eco-extractions: subcritical water and supercritical CO2 to sublimate the best of what Nature offers.
Goji berry belong to the Salonacea-family, like tomatoes or eggplant and is a little red berry with an elongated shape measuring around 2cm, growing on a shrub from 1 to 3 meters in height. Also known as ‘fruit of eternal youth’, the Goji berry is the superfruit par excellence thanks to its richness in antioxidants. It is sometimes given the name of red diamond. The properties of goji berries mostly concern their high nutrient content (polysaccharides, polyphenols, minerals, trace elements…) and their complementary. Both energetic, protective, regenerating, revitalizing, remineralizing, restructuring and natural defences stimulators, the extraction for cosmetic purposes make them suitable for many applications all targeting the fight against the signs of aging and the increase in beauty expectancy.
ReVYskin has a global action to harmonize V and Y shapes:
