Figure 7. Elastin content in human skin explants with or without a topical application of the active ingredient at 0.5%; image quantification analysis

Interestingly, application of the active on skin explants stimulated both tropoelastin (see Table 5 and Figure 6) and elastin synthesis (Table 6 and Figure 7); compared with untreated explant at D11, the active ingredient statistically increased the synthesis of tropoelastin by 56% and elastin by 189%.
