Osmogeline is a red algae extract that helps to that fights against environmental stressors and revitalize stressed skin by moisturizing and smoothing the cutaneous surface within 3 days. Algae is chosen due to its ability to withstand many environmental stresses such as UV, dehydration or osmotic shock. Pollutants and sun exposure creates an imbalance in the overall metabolism of the skin, giving it a dull, uneven, and aged appearance. Osmogeline works in 3 key ways:
- Fighting against redness and uneven skin tone
- Stimulating and protecting the barrier to give a smooth and soft appearance to the skin
- Protecting the dermal matrix.
Osmogeline is a gel that gives a particularly soft touch to finished formulations and is great in face serums and daily protection moisturizers.
Reduces the inflammation response by 64% after 24 hours
Prevents cellular lipid oxidation by 82% after 4 hours
Osmogeline demonstrated its ability to reverse the effect of UV exposure at the gene expression level. Two counter-regulated genes detected in this assay include MMP1 and MMP3, enzymes implicated in the degradation of the dermal matrix, which leads to wrinkles and sagging. By limiting the activation of these genes after radiation exposure, a youthful appearance to the skin can be maintained.
