With skin relying on mitochondria for cell energy, Silab has introduced an active, Algophagyl (INCI: Chlorella Sorokiniana Extract), which helps preserve the equilibrium and correct functioning of mitochondria.
Mending the functioning of mitochondria is done by activating three defense layers:
- The quality control of mitochondria
- The mitochondrial dynamics
- The mitophagy (the selective degradation of mitochondria by autophagy, which is the consumption of the body’s own tissue as a metabolic process occurring in starvation and certain diseases)
Chlorella sorokiniana is a microalgae that protects the mitochondrion by enabling it to adapt to its environment and boosting its metabolism.
The ingredient was tested on Caucasian and Asian volunteers and results showed an overall improved quality of skin.
Lasting or severe stress can cause mitochondria to malfunction, which can be harmful to the skin. However, Algophagyl proves to be beneficial in all energizing and revitalizing treatments and helps leave the skin glowing.
This patented ingredient is rich in glucans and galactans and is compliant with cosmetic regulations in Europe, the U.S. and Japan.
