Greentech_CIRCALYSGREENTECH launches CIRCALYS®, an innovative natural active ingredient that efficiently reduces the impacts on skin and mood of fatigue induced by modern off-beat life.

New lifestyle habits are disrupting the natural rhythm. These changes in society are causing increasing fatigue for up to 45 percent of the population, especially for women. The circadian rhythms are like an inside clock. When off-beat life disturbs it, it influences almost all biological processes leading to a tired skin and impacting the mood.

CIRCALYS® Revitalizes Skin

CIRCALYS® is a potent active ingredient titrated in andrographolide, a molecule identified by Greentech scientists to counteract circadian disruption and revitalize skin. Inspired by Ayurveda, CIRCALYS® was developed from Green Chiretta (Andrographis paniculata), a major detoxifying plant in Ayurvedic traditional medicine.

CIRCALYS®: a chrono-detox feel good energizing active ingredient designed through chronobiological and psychobiological concepts. China & COSMOS-approved, 100 percent natural origin (ISO 16128).

The new natural active ingredient modulates skin rhythms, by restoring a “young” invigorating clock gene expression profile in old/tired skin cells and by acting on circadian modulators related to key cellular pathways.

Reduces Cell Damages

It extends cell longevity, reduces cell damages, promoting skin revitalization. CIRCALYS® also stimulates key signaling pathways connecting skin and brain, also influenced by circadian clock. It boosts oxytocin, endocannabinoid and endorphin signaling pathways to relax and protect skin from modern life impacts.

CIRCALYS® efficiently reduces the impacts on skin and mood of fatigue induced by modern off-beat life. Tested on night/shift workers during 28 days in a double blind clinical study, CIRCALYS® was proved to significantly reduce visible signs of fatigue: eye bags, dark circles and under-eye wrinkles. Volunteers also found their skin more radiant, comfortable and rested.

Thanks to three scientifically recognized psychological tests, the use of CIRCALYS® in a cosmetic formula was also proved to significantly modulate the impacts of fatigue on mood: boosted feeling of well-being, reduced perceived stress and negative affect («yoga-like» effect).
