Kappaphycus Alvarezii Extract
An extract coming from red algae that's rich in milk sugar polysaccharide called galactan. According to the manufacturer, it can stimulate the telosomic protein expression thus limiting the shortening of telomeres.
Telomeres are like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces: they give a protective ending to the DNA strands. The problem is that they get shorter and shorter with chromosome replication and after a while, they cannot protect the DNA strands anymore so DNA gets damaged and our cells cannot do their job. Based on this theory, it's believed that limiting the shortening of telomeres can maintain skin cell longevity and delay the skin aging process.
The in-vitro (in the lab) tests by the manufacturer showed that 0.5% Telesomyl on pre-senescence human fibroblasts reduced stress-induced telomeres shortening by 65%. The in-vivo (on people) tests showed that after 42 days, Telesomyl improved the appearance of the dermal matrix by 30.2%, smoothed the skin’s surface around the crow’s feet area, and improved the perceived age of the panellists by 3 years.
