The biotechnological ingredient not only protects and rejuvenates skin exposed to severe cold conditions, but also reduces wrinkles for a younger complexion.
For 30 days, volunteers with signs of dry skin and winkles spent one hour a day outdoors in cold weather conditions.
They applied a cream with 1% of Antarcticine marine ingredient C on one side of their face and a placebo on the other side, twice a day.
Participants experienced an increase in moisturization after one week, a decrease in the transepidermal water loss (TEWL) level by 12.1% after 15 days and up to 14.7% after 30 days. The red complexion, which results in human skin from being exposed to the cold, was also notably reduced.
Both wrinkle depth and volume decreased by 10.6% and 9.3%, leaving skin smoother at the end of the treatment.
