The skin is protected naturally by a hydro-lipidic film. However, this is subjected to oxidative stress, which generates free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS).
In the meantime, glycation alters the elasticity of the skin through collagen crosslinking and leads to uneven skin tone through the accumulation of advanced glycation end-products (AGE). It is these processes of lipid peroxidation and glycation that trigger a vicious circle of ageing. Plantasens® Olive Active HP is an anti-ageing active ingredient derived from olive that acts as a protective shield. It protects against UV-induced lipid peroxidation by scavenging reactive oxygen species. It also prevents the formation of AGEs and limits collagen crosslinking. It thus helps to maintain the skin’s natural balance and smooth appearance, and its elasticity. Through those mechanisms, Plantasens Olive Active HP aims to sustainably preserve the skin’s natural beauty for longer.
Ageing is a fact of life; but whatever your age, it is important to look and feel at your best.1 While the skin’s natural ageing process cannot be stopped, the right skin care regimen can help slow it down significantly.
The skin is protected naturally by a hydro-lipidic film. However, this is subject to oxidative stress. In a chain reaction, free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are formed which attack the lipids on the skin’s surface and the cell membrane of both the epidermis and dermis. This impairs the skin’s natural balance and causes the surface to lose its smooth appearance.2
