Reducing the visible signs of ageing by tackling cell senescence is the claim of Sederma’s new ingredient, Juvinity.

Juvinity is designed to delay both nucleus and metabolic senescence (ageing), the France-based ingredients company explained.

Nucleus ageing refers to the ageing of structures and processes related to the nucleus such as DNA damage and telomere shortening, a spokesperson for the company explained.

“Metabolic senescence relates to the decrease of the cell metabolism in terms of energy, synthesis level and cell vitality,”​ the spokesperson told

Ensure telomere length

According to the company, the ingredient can help protect the nucleus structures from oxidation and damage and ensure the maintenance of telomere length.

The telomeres are the ends of chromosomes that shorten with repeated replications, and therefore with age, and their degradation has been implicated in many theories of ageing.

In addition, Sederma said its in vitro ​tests suggest the ingredient can reduce oxidative stress and rebalance mitochondrial activity.

“Juvinity delays metabolic senescence by stimulating the respiratory chain to ensure optimal level of ATP (energy) and increasing the extracellular matrix macromolecule synthesis,”​ the spokesperson said.

The company also claims that in vivo​ tests show Juvinity helping to reduce the signs of ageing on the face and décolleté, smoothing wrinkles and restructuring the skin.

Preventative and corrective

Sederma claims that its ingredient has both corrective and preventative effects so can be used in both products for younger consumers concerned about ageing, as well as more mature consumers.

The ingredient is oil soluble and preservative free and can be used in all anti-ageing products, Sederma claimed.
