Gladback™ is a purified and standardized fraction of Poria cocos for mature and/or menopause skins. It is a multi-functional active ingredient which increases skin thickness, radiance and microcirculation, and it also reduces the appearance of wrinkles typical of aging. Poria cocos is a well-known fungus in Asian traditional medicine where it is used as a purifying, antioxidant and softening agent. In GladbackTM, the part used st the sclerocia (mycelium), which is rich in polysacchrides (pachyman) and triterpenes. It is rich in Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen.
*TRYLAGEN® is a combination of active peptides and proteins that can fight the processes that affect the quantity and quality of collagen as we age. It acts on collagen via 3 main functions:
A) Collagen boosting- During aging, the synthesis of collagen gradually declines. The active ingredients in TRYLAGEN® boost the synthesis of collagen types I, III and IV, helping to compensate for our decreased production as we age.
B) Collagen organization- The process of fibrillogenesis results in the formation of collagen bundles that are responsible for the strength and resilency of the skin. TRYLAGEN® controls collagen fibril dimensions by uniformising their diameter and spacing them regularly. This provides a better cohesion and stabilization of collagen fibers, and gives suppleness to the skin.
C) Collagen protection - After a certain age the degradation of collagen speeds up, due to an increase in MMP (matrix metalloproteinases) levels. Collagenases, a specific type of MMP, cleave fibrillar collagen into smaller fragments, which are then susceptible to further proteolysis. TRYLAGEN® inhibits the production of human MMP-2 and MMP-3, therefore avoiding excessive collagen damage in aged skin. Its anti-collagenase activity protects collagen from degradation
