Pro-Derm: Stem Youth Night Cream
Centenarians have always intrigued scientists. The discovery of special enzymes called sirtuins in these individuals with exceptional longevity inspired our team of researchers to develop StemYouth Night Cream.
Sirtuins regulate cell longevity and are responsible for cell survival. Pro-sirtuin rice extract, argan plant stem cell extract and five other major plant-based or biotechnology-derived ingredients attack the visible signs of ageing.
The onset of visible signs of ageing is slowed. The skin becomes smoother and the epidermis is plumped. Wrinkles are considerably diminished. The skin regains its elasticity and tonicity.
Features and Benefits:
- Reduces and delays visible signs of ageing (e.g. wrinkles, skin sagging)
- For men and women 35 years old and over
- For all skin types, including highly-sensitive skin
- Excellent in combination with skin care treatments containing an AHA, fruit acids, salicylic acid or retinol base, or any other preparation that speeds up the natural exfoliation process
|How to use||In the evening, following a thorough skin cleansing, apply a small amount of StemYouth Night Cream to the face and neck, and massage in gently.|
*Contains no parabens – No synthetic fragrances – No dyes or mineral oil. Not tested on animals.
Orsirtine® is a botanical rice extract that stimulates the expression and production of longevity proteins in skin cells. By boosting the production of sirtuins, Orsirtine® increases skin’s youthfulness and helps fight the signs of ageing by:
Promotes skin structure repair.
Located at the level of the dermis, the extracellular matrix is a gel that forms a network around the fibroblasts. It is composed of water, various polysaccharides and structural proteins that give the skin its remarkable properties.
Belonging to the family of tiny glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), lumican is the “strong link” in the assembly of the collagen network. It is found in the extracellular matrix of the dermis, where it bonds to the collagen fibrils, forming an interconnected bundle of functional fibres. Allowing this tiny molecule to play a key role in the anti-ageing process not only involves stimulating collagen synthesis, but also optimizing its organization in order to ensure its full supporting role. Lumican decreases over time, causing the extracellular matrix to become fragile and resulting in a loss of firmness.
Dermican is a peptide that stimulates collagen and lumican synthesis, optimizing the mechanical properties of the skin.
This cutting edge weapon produces a repulping effect, leading to firmer skin.
Promotes DEJ repair.
At the cellular level, skin ageing leads to epidermal thinning, combined with a flattening of the dermo-epidermal junction (DEJ). This decreases the amount of nutrients available, leading to a slowdown in the skin’s natural repair process. The DEJ maintains cellular cohesion and fulfills metabolic needs, ensuring young-looking skin and a healthy complexion.
Chronoline™ is a biomimetic tetrapeptide that stimulates the production of major components at the DEJ, providing optimum structural support:
In short, Chronoline™ reinforces collagen anchoring. Like tens of thousands of micro-velcro fibres, this active ingredient inspired by surgical lifting techniques tightens the skin, repositions tissue and restores volume, resulting in redefined facial contours and visibly smoother features.
Plant-based collagen and elastin protector.
This natural polyphenol extract from the leaves of the argan tree helps combat the skin’s loss of firmness and elasticity by protecting the macromolecules that make up the dermis, and collagen in particular, using two distinct processes:
Arganyl™ reinforces the skin structure, resulting in smoother and firmer skin.
Plant-based free-radical captor.
The olive tree is the ancient and traditional tree of all Mediterranean civilizations. Its leaves contain oleuropein, oleuropeoside and flavonoids, which serve as powerful free-radical captors.
A plant-based precursor to NMF
This plant protein, an extract of Voandzeia subterranea, can stimulate the synthesis of Profilaggrin, a precursor molecule of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF). Filaggryl® optimizes water reserves in the epidermis by activating the moisture receptors at the surface of the epidermis and the production of extracellular and intracellular moisture receptors.
Plant-based moisture receptor
Much like a magnet, this blend of plant-based polysaccharides captures and retains water longer than traditional moisturizers.
Anti-inflammatory and free-radical captor.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is an edible fruit from the Lythraceae family. It likely originated in Iran and is recognized for its therapeutic qualities.
The oil is extracted from the pomegranate seeds. Containing more than 60% punicic acid, a molecule belonging to the family of polyphenols, the oil has exceptional anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is therefore used more and more to delay the effects of skin ageing. It is also hydrating and nourishing.
GRAPE SEED OIL
Plant based, regenerating and restructuring
Rich in vitamin E and linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid, Grape Seed Oil has regenerative and restructuring properties for the skin. This light oil is easy to apply and suits all skin types.
Revitalizing and nourishing, plant based, certified organic.
This fine and precious oil is extracted from the nut of the fruit of the argan tree (Argania spinosa), a rare species native to South-West Morocco. The oil contains mainly essential fatty acids, phytosterols and vitamin E.
Known and used for centuries for its medicinal qualities, Argan Oil is appreciated not only for its nutritional properties, but also for its cosmetic applications. South Moroccan women have always used it for hair and body care.
It prevents skin sagging, a major sign of premature skin ageing and delays the formation of wrinkles. It also keeps skin from drying, helping it retain its suppleness through smoothing, softening and revitalizing action. Its protective properties make it particularly useful in the treatment of localized skin problems and the preparation of skin creams. It helps with wound healing and scarring, soothes irritated skin and reduces redness.
Nourishing and protective, plant based.
This vegetal butter is obtained from the nuts of the shea tree or Butyrospermum parkii, a large tree that grows in the savannas of many West and Central African countries. It has a very high unsaponifiable fraction compared with classic shea butter—i.e. 13% compared with the usual 5% to 8%—giving it unique properties.
More than a simple emollient, it protects the skin from climatic aggressions, pollution and especially UV rays. It also has excellent anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
WILD MANGO BUTTER
Soothing, promotes healing, plant based.
As the name suggests, this active ingredient is extracted from a wild mango, Irvingia gabonensis, more specifically the seed contained in the mango pit.
This particular butter contains triglycerides and an unsaponifiable fraction, providing excellent lipid-replenishing and moisturizing action with hydrating, softening and soothing results. Rich in vitamin E and phytosterols, it offers in-depth protection, nourishment and repair.
This great vegetal emollient extracted from olive oil is added for its closeness to the composition of the hydrolipidic film at the surface of the epidermis. It helps maintain healthy and well-hydrated skin.
OLIVEM® 1000 – Liquid crystal emulsion
This liquid crystal vegetal emulsion extracted from olive oil is hypoallergenic and ultra-hydrating. Like a highly-hydrophilic gel, the liquid crystals have a tremendous capacity to retain water, considerably increasing the hydrating power of StemYouth Night Cream.
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL
Lavender’s healing, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make it effective in the treatment of dry and irritated skin. It is also recommended for delicate and sensitive skin.
GERANIUM BOURBON ESSENTIAL OIL
With its tonic, healing and antiseptic properties, geranium essential oil soothes and revitalizes dry skin.
ROSEWOOD ESSENTIAL OIL
Powerful regenerative, stimulating and tissue firming properties. Anti-wrinkle effect. Restores the skin’s elasticity.
