Giving a red card in the infrared, the thermophilus ferment combats IR-Aging. Thermus thermophilus was among the top four finalists in the 2014 Awards R & DC & T in the category Best New Ingredient.The Thermus thermophilus is a Gram-negative bacterium which lives and grows at a depth of 2000 m, with a temperature of 75 ° C, and 200 bars pressure. TheThermus thermophilus ferment derives from biotechnology.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the positive effects as an anti-aging active and it meets the expectations of a new generation of photo-based protection against UV radiation and protect IR. It seems to be, by far, the most complete active ingredient to combat photoaging. Prevents visible signs of photoaging (spots, wrinkles, dryness) Protects cell structures from UV damage. Enhances skin integrity.
Improves hydration via the protection of the mitochondrial integrity known to be particularly damaged by IR radiation (ATP synthesis and mitochondrial water content increased by 123%)
Lessens the inflammatory conditions (PGE2: -54%, IL-6: -53%, IL-8: -61%, vs IR-irradiated control)
Prevents the denaturation of matrix macromolecules in order to limit wrinkle formation (Collagen I: +70%, Fibrillin-I: +28% vs IR-irradiated control)
