Abstract

Pro-Xylane™ is a new anti-aging molecule for the skin developed by L'Oreal. It is a "green" product: in fact the first ingredient is xylos, a natural sugar from beachwood sourced from western Europe, and the synthesis has only two optimised steps in which water is used as solvent. Studies performed with the Episkin model have shown that in the epidermal-dermal junction Pro-Xylane™ stimulates the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) production, the sythesis of type VII collagen and the CD44 expression. In female subjects ages 50-65 after two months treatment with Pro-Xylane™ there was an improvement of the face wrinkles and immunohistological studies revealed an increase of condroitin 6-sulfate in the wrinkle trough.

Article
New anti-aging cosmetic proposals are linked with our updates on wound healing. New antioxidants strongly reduce ROS generation in epidermis and dermis, so blocking dermis degradation. Growth factors actively stimulate dermal remodeling phase (the key to reverse the visible signs of aging) and peptides carry enzymatic cofactors, usually copper, and reduce subconscious muscle movement over time.
