The company says that the formula aims to reduce skin ageing by acting on the ‘global functioning of the skin cell’, which in turns helps to promote intracellular activity and energy, ultimately speeding up the detoxification and replication process.
It is also said to be highly compatible with other active ingredients, which means it can be combined to create a highly complex and effective anti-ageing skin care product.
Compatible with other actives
In particular, the company says that it can be combined with ingredients such as Alariane and Kalpariane, two active anti-ageing ingredients marketed by the company and extracted from Alaria esculenta, a brown seaweed harvested off the coast of Brittany, North-West France.
The company says that clinical trials have proved that BioFA can help to decrease protein oxidation, by stimulating the proteasome activity in the skin’s cells as well as boosting mitochondrial membrane potential when there is oxidative stress.
The trials also showed how the ingredient tackles cell detoxification by increasing the activity of proteasome subunits on younger cells, which means it is particularly effective at reversing damage to cells before it is too late.
Targeting cell recycling
Meanwhile, protein recycling is also targeted by the ingredient because it helps to stimulate the recycling of oxidized proteins by stimulating the Thioredoxin reductase activity and rate.
Ultimately, the ingredient is said to increase the overall health and viability of skin cells, leading to a healthier skin appearance, with a visible reduction the puffiness and wrinkling associated with physical ageing.
The company is launching the product worldwide and the distribution of the ingredient will be handled by UK-based Adina Cosmetics Ingredients.
