HYDRATING MASK — COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN
Glycation is a chemical reaction responsible for skin aging. The addition of sugars on the dermis proteins (elastin and collagen) changes their structure and so their activity: fibers clump together, they harden and lose their suppleness. This is how wrinkles appear. Our Collagen and Elastin Hydrating line fights against this glycation phenomenon: the anti-glycation activity of the Arginine PCA helps restore the skin biomechanical properties and makes it more supple, elastic and luminous.

ARGININE PCA (D-GLYCARGINE)
It’s a combination of two amino acids: L-pyrrolidone carboxylic and arginine. This active can significantly limit the glycation of proteins and fix the glycated proteins. The Arginine PCA helps restore firmness and fight yellowing skin.
Concentrated in amino-acids and strengthening tissues, the marine elastin helps slow down skin aging process and keep skin elasticity.
Main component of the dermis conjonctive tissue and capable to fix several times its weight of water, Collagen is used for its hydrating* properties but also as a cells growth activator to improve skin elasticity.
