(INCI: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (and) Dunaliella Salina Extract) Scientific research shows that glycation (a chemical reaction caused by the excess sugar we ingest, oxidative stress and UV radiation) is one of the main causes of skin ageing. During glycation sugars are added to key structural proteins of the skin such as, collagen and elastin resulting in irreversible changes to their structure and function, which accelerates the skin ageing in a process (Glyc-Aging™). Microalga Dunaliella salina is nature’s own photoprotective mechanism that withstands harsh solar irradiation. IBR-SolAge™ is a sustainable and circular economy (uses by-products from nearby salt factories) active from purified pink algae extract, uniquely designed to fight Glyc-Aging™. It bio-mimics alga’s adaptation to solar stress and is produced using green extraction technology to maximise bioavailability and efficacy. This colourless carotenoid, standardised in phytoene and phytofluene is a unique oil-soluble multifunctional active that can prevent the formation of AGEs, detoxify existing ones and reduce the AGE-mediated signalling in solar stressed skin at low dosage (1%). It reduces the accumulation of AGEs in the skin, improves skin elasticity, reduces skin roughness and prevents the appearance of wrinkles and UV spots. Ideal for sun care, after sun, daily defence, anti-redness, make-up and oil-based formulations.
