Cosmetic Innovations to Beautifully Face Modern Life’s Dictates
By: Olga Gracioso, Sederma
Posted: March 27, 2013
The routine of modern life is hectic, with running to business appointments, school, shopping and dancing. Combined with lack of sleep, this constant running around takes a toll on the skin and our body, especially the legs. Sederma has designed two innovative cosmetic ingredients for those who want to preserve their beauty despite of their rhythm of life.
Prodigiously Refreshed Skin
Lack of sleep creates stressful conditions in the body that raise the level of internal toxins, glycotoxins being one. Glycotoxins deregulate the skin’s natural systems responsible for the repair and protection processes that occur during sleep. Consequently, this deregulation contributes to impaired cell function, tissue disruption, damaged microvessels, etc.
Sederma has created an active that promotes a visible reduction in the cutaneous signs of fatigue: dark circles, under eye bags, dull complexion and drawn features. By supporting specific detoxifying systems (glyoxalase and proteasome), Prodizia™ can both protect and repair the proteic structures damaged by glycation. Furthermore, Prodizia™ helps regulate melatonin levels of glycation-stressed skin cells, ensuring an optimal repair process during sleep. This, along with its ability to help fight against glycation during the day and repair proteic structures damaged by glycation during the night, makes it perfect for a 24-hour treatment.
In a two-month clinical study, volunteers noted a significant reduction in the visible tired look of their face after just 10 days of applying a cream containing Prodizia™, as shown in Figure 1. By the end of the study, there was an overall 44% reduction. Thanks to Prodizia™, the skin looks refreshed like after a good night’s sleep.
A Vivifying Feeling of Elegance
Fashion, elegance and seduction are all essential dictates of beauty that lead to the same conclusion—a stylish woman must be wearing high heels and stilettos. In addition to the constraints of an active woman's life—lots of walking, sitting or standing for a long time, heat and travelling—it is a challenge to maintain sexy and relaxed legs.
Sederma has created Legance™ to fight against leg discomfort and premature aging. Legance™ is based on a vegetal extract of Zingiber zerumbet obtained by supercritical CO2, an eco-friendly production mode. By inhibiting the inflammatory phenomena leading to lipid storage and water retention, Legance™ restores a more dynamic circulation in the legs and relieves the sensation of tiredness.
Two substantial in vivo studies, one based on 24 volunteers and another one on 27 volunteers and conducted by a phlebologist, have demonstrated the efficacy of Legance™ for slender legs and ankles, attenuated spider veins and relaxed legs. The mechanism of action was elucidated through extensive in vitro tests.
With Legance™, leg's appearance and comfort are improved. Living under the pressures of the Carrie Bradshaw syndrome—running to business appointments, school, shopping, dancing—is not a problem anymore!
