The newest ingredient from BASF’s Sustainable Argan Program is clinically proven to plump and firm the skin through collagen production and optimized adipogenesis. With intrinsic aging, the most noticeable signs of lipoatrophy (adipose tissue loss) occur in the face. Coupled with the deterioration of the ECM (extracellular matrix), there is a visible loss of volume throughout the face, particularly in the cheeks, around the nasolabial fold, and in the lips. This volume loss leads to an exaggerated appearance of wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and accentuated facial folds. By boosting both collagen I production and adipogenesis, we see a significant increase in facial volume. Argassential™ is created through a unique supercritical CO2 extraction process of the argan pulp that is able to capture the active fractions responsible for rejuvenating skin volume. Argassential™ improves collagen I synthesis, maturation, and deposition while simultaneously stimulating adipocyte differentiation and lipogenesis. Through this multi-action stimulation, Argassential™ is clinically proven to plump the skin and lips, improve firmness and elasticity, and bring back a younger appearance.
