Nowadays, skin faces a growing and worrying phenomenon; more and more cities are concerned by pollution peaks due to the gradual increase of people living in urban areas and to the development of manufacturing companies. The skin is constantly exposed, additionally to sun rays, to various pollutants and particulate matter (PM) that increase cutaneous inflammation and contribute to accelerate cutaneous aging.

In light of this alarming observation, ID bio has decided to carry out new studies on its latest active ingredient Cell’intact® (INCI : Aqua (and) Polygonum Fagopyrum Seed Extract).

An ex vivo evaluation has been realized on skin explants to prove its effectiveness in presence of a pollutant (benzo[a]pyrene).

The ingredient enables to:

• reduce the proinflammatory answer by acting on interleukin-8 (IL-8), a marker protein that overreacts in case of pollution and leads to cutaneous discomfort Cell’intact at 3% enables to reduce by 26,2% the IL-8 release against polluted control
>> The skin is less reactive and cells are « zen », relaxed

• rebuild and reinforce the architectural epidermis network via the protection of tight junctions’ proteins (Claudins-1 and -4) to avoid premature aging
>> Skin is more resistant to aggressions (exhaust gases, industrial smokes, tobacco, etc) and aging signs are kept away

Those results show the large scope of intervention of the active ingredient that creates a complete and natural shield against pollution and environmental attacks. A preventive and restorative action ideal in protective cares for face and body. ID Bio will present new results on Cell’intact® during an Innovation Seminar on November 3rd at 17:15 at in-cosmetics Asia in Bangkok (November 3rd to 5th), Booth D27.
