This ingredient helps revive skin's radiance and strengthen oxygenation under conditions of chronological aging or digital pollution, improving the skin’s quality and restoring a healthy glow.
The ingredient was tested on the skin of Caucasian and Asian volunteers who were exposed to pollution for a minimum of 10 years. Formulated at 2.5% in an emulsion, the ingredient:
- Reinforced the skin barrier, as shown by a decrease in transepidermal water loss of 11.5%;
- Smoothed skin's microrelief and reduced crow’s feet wrinkles by 16.4%; and
- Increased the uniformity of the skin by 28.9%.
Oxygeskin was proven to reinvigorate the skin using a model based on the ability of blue light to reduce skin’s capacity to mobilize the oxygen sensor HIF-1α (-44%). However, at 0.25% on irradiated keratinocytes, Oxygeskin increased HIF-1α content by 26%.
Tested at 1% on human skin explants irradiated with blue light, Oxygeskin also increased the organization of elastin and fibrillin-1 fibers by 92%, protecting the dermis from digital pollution.
