Dill Compound

Lys’Lastine V

(INCI: Water (aqua) (and) Butylene Glycol (and) Peucedanum Graveolens (Dill) Extract (and) Xanthan Gum) is manufactured by BASF. It was developed in collaboration with CNRS to renew skin elasticity through the reinduction of LOXL synthesis. LOXL was found by the two to be the key to regulating the assembly of microfibrils and tropoelastin (soluble elastin) that make up elastin. While microfibrils and soluble elastin continue to be synthesized throughout life, LOXL dramatically decreases from the age of 18. The insoluble nature of the assembly is required for its functionality. Increased levels of LOXL in the skin causes the assembly of microfibrils and tropoelastin, leading to improved mechanical properties of the reconstructed skin.
