Wrinkles seem to be an inevitable result of skin aging. Anti-aging ingredients generally address wrinkling through optical effects or by enhancing extracellular matrix production and skin moisturization. But skin sagging and wrinkling also result from loss of the underlying fatty tissue that supports the skin. Volpura® EP, an active ingredient based on Echinacea purpurea, addresses skin aging by bolstering fat production to volumize the hypodermal layer residing immediately beneath the dermis. This activity is beneficial in anti-aging products for use on the face and hands (diminished fat pads with aging) and body contouring.  Volpura® EP also has powerful anti-inflammatory benefits and is an environmentally-friendly ingredient that’s produced with a nearly “net-zero” carbon footprint.
