At in-cosmetics 2015 in Barcelona, Contipro will debut a multifunctional peptide that opens and activates proteasomes in cells for an anti-aging effect. Recelline (INCI: Phosphate Buffered Saline (and) Sh-Oligopeptide) offers a comprehensive solution to a number of signs of aging due to its focus on the natural process of cell regeneration. It deals not only with aging consequences, but also with their causes at a basic level.
Proteasomes are protein structures with enzymatic activity responsible for degradation of damaged proteins that are often accumulated in aged skin. Higher protein turnover rate has positive impacts on cells exposed to various types of oxidative stress such as UV radiation or chemical oxidants. Due to the fact that proteasomes play a key role in many cellular processes, multiple beneficial effects on the skin can be observed after their activation including improvement of wrinkles, skin texture, elasticity, gloss etc. Therefore, the active can address the main causes of aging in one active, reducing the need for a number of ingredients.
Also, it fights both intrinsic and extrinsic aging at one time. It offers high performance at a low concentration, and it is water soluble. It is recommended at 1-5% in day creams, night creams, eye creams and serums for a lightening, anti-aging and anti-wrinkle effect.
