Lipotec is thrilled to announce that REPROAGE™ peptide has been honored with Bronze at the recent Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Awards presented within the in-cosmetics® Global show taking place on April 4th – 6th in London.
The award recognizes the development of a novel active ingredient that combines innovative science and product features in a way that demonstrates substantial benefits to manufacturers and end-users. REPROAGE™peptide is one of Lipotec’s latest developments targeting cell reprogramming to achieve a rejuvenated effect on the skin.
The epidermis is one of the most active tissues in terms of regeneration thanks to the ability of the stem cells from the basal layer to divide and renew themselves. This process is controlled by specific transcription factors that are regulated at the epigenetic level. With age, the regenerative potential and the overall function of epidermis are reduced, resulting in development of aging signs. REPROAGE™ peptide may induce cellular reprogramming in the epidermal basal layer through the modulation of epigenetic elements, helping to reactivate basal cells and their regenerative abilities and leading to an improved appearance of mature skin.
Two in vivo assays, performed using 2% peptide solution twice a day during 56 days, showed a general improvement in skin complexion and more radiance with 1.5% increase in luminance as well as a rejuvenated skin with epidermal self-renewal activity increased to the level of a skin 17 years younger in the 50-55 years old volunteers and up to 41.3% decrease in skin roughness.
