COHELISS®: the stretching program to restore the skin’s firmness and resilience

H&PC Today

 

 

COHELISS®is a firming and anti-gravity active ingredient specifically developed by SILAB to stimulate the mechanical and biological functions of the skin cells in response to mechanical stress in order to restore the natural stretching effect.

Pioneer in the field of mechanobiology

Efficacy on volunteers

COHELISS® specifically fights against slack skin, a major concern for consumers.

The firming action of COHELISS® has been demonstrated through an original in vivo model developed to measure the skin’s response of key zones of the face with or without mechanical stress [3]. With COHELISS® at 4%, the skin tone significantly increases by 19% (P < 0.05) and skin tension by 16% (P < 0.05). With its smoothing and anti-wrinkle effect, COHELISS® limits the appearance of gravity and expression wrinkles. The total wrinkled surface at the crow’s feet and nasolabial fold is reduced by 15% and 26% respectively (P < 0.01) [4].

A firming and anti-gravity ally, COHELISS® tightens the fibrous network and gives the skin resilience and tone.

[3] After 28 days of twice daily applications and in comparison to the placebo group, COHELISS® formulated at 3% improves the skin’s capacity to return to its initial state by 12.6%.

Natural and biomimetic

The Nature, source of inspiration

Rich in arabinoxylans purified from French rye seeds (INCI Name: Secale cereale Seed Extract), COHELISS® is the result of a nondenaturing industrial process.

A biomimetic active ingredient, COHELISS® transposes to the skin the natural properties of arabinoxylans, molecules responsible for the cohesion and mechanical resistance of the rye.

COHELISS® stimulates the natural resources of the skin in order to restore its mechanical properties and return its natural lifting properties to normal.

COHELISS® is a patented active ingredient, easy to formulate and compliant with global cosmetic regulations (Europe, United-States, Japan and China). It is available in aqueous solution (recommended amount: 1 to 4%) as well as in preservative-free powder (recommended amount: 0.05 to 1%).
