Creme ADN Metamorphique
Exceptional firming care, Crème ADN Métamorphique combats sagging and cutaneous ptosis. Its active ingredients stimulate synthesis of the extracellular matrix’s main components (collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid) to redensify the dermal layer and strengthen the skin’s deep architecture. It thus works against gravity to rebalance facial volume and restructure the oval of the face. Its natural contour is rebalanced and redefined.
This cream’s firming active ingredients work together to improve the skin’s biomechanical properties, bringing back elasticity and firmness. In addition, the tightening action creates a real lifting effect in two phases: instantly, the facial features are made firmer; in the long term, the skin is tightened and plumped up, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out.
Finally, Crème ADN Métamorphique will protect the epidermis from skin aging with a combination of active ingredients aimed at protecting the DNA of the cells from the harmful effects of environmental stress.
Recommended for sagging Skin Instants© that lack structure and tone.
- Plantain seed extract
Plantain is a perennial plant native to Europe that is found in very diverse habitats. It is a sign of healthy soils. At the structural level, it will stimulate the expression of two major constituents of the extracellular matrix: decorin, involved in collagen network organization, and fibrillin-1, an essential component of the elastic network of the dermis. It thus strengthens the skin’s deep architecture and restores superficial skin volumes damaged by aging. It also stimulates hyaluronic acid synthesis to plump up the skin. Facial volume is more balanced, its oval is redesigned and the skin is firmed.
- Peony extract
The peony is a plant found in various regions from Europe to the Far East. Its roots are rich in oligosaccharides. This extract fights premature skin aging by regulating and controlling cell communication. By blocking harmful exchanges between the dermis and hypodermis, it helps preserve adipocytes, thereby increasing the skin’s thickness and density to restore facial volume.
- Rye extract
Obtained from rye seed, this extract helps firm and smooth the cutaneous tissue, tighten the skin and increase its tone. It stimulates the synthesis of retractable components (fibers that can retract like fibroblasts) generating tension forces essential for regulating the dermis’s mechanical resistance. It thus tightens the fibrous network, thereby restoring the skin’s “bounce.” It has a long-lasting firming effect.
- Goji berry extract
Goji berries are superfruits known for their anti-aging and stimulating properties. Their extract revitalizes the stem cells, known as mesenchymal cells (i.e., from the connective tissue), which are capable of regenerating the skin. These cells produce exosomes, small vesicles surrounded by a membrane containing messenger molecules such as RNA, proteins and lipids. These exosomes can rejuvenate fibroblasts by stimulating the synthesis of extracellular matrix components such as collagen and elastin. The skin is firmed, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and skin sagging. The oval of the face is protected and redefined.
- Shrubby Everlasting extract
Shrubby everlasting extract is rich in oligosaccharides. It stimulates the synthesis of periostin, a regenerative extracellular matrix protein whose synthesis slows down over time. It thus regenerates the structure of collagen fibers and improves dermal matrix density. The skin regains its firmness and tone to reduce face sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. The contours of the face are redefined and enhanced.
- Cassava extract
Cassava (Manihot Esculenta) is a perennial shrub from the Euphorbiaceae family, native to South America, more specifically the southwest of the Amazon Basin. The sugar extracted from cassava creates molecular networks that anchor, spread and rapidly form a viscoelastic film on the skin surface to improve the skin’s micro-surface. This active ingredient has an immediate surface impact, significantly lifting and improving the appearance of wrinkles while pulling up the cheeks to resculpt the facial contour.
- Marine exopolysaccharide from the Iroise Sea
This active ingredient is secreted by a planktonic microorganism found in the Iroise Sea. It stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis to improve skin’s firmness and elasticity. It also has a tightening effect on the network of collagen fibers for an immediate, long-lasting lifting effect (starting after 15 minutes). Skin is smoother and wrinkles are filled.
DNA protective platform
- Antioxidant Tripeptide
This is a synthesis peptide with two functions: it protects and repairs damaged DNA. By inhibiting formation of carbonylated proteins, it provides photoprotection for dermal keratinocytes and fibroblasts. It protects skin cells from DNA degradation due to UV rays and strengthens DNA repair system capacity. Therefore, this antioxidant tripeptide is a comprehensive protective active ingredient that minimizes the effects of intrinsic and extrinsic aging.
- Smithsonite extract
A mineral extract from Smithsonite stone, this active ingredient is rich in zinc, a trace element essential for growth and immune response. By stimulating metallothionein, a protein involved in the natural DNA defense process, it will effectively protect cellular DNA. The skin is thus deeply protected against environmental stress over the long term. This extract will also protect keratinocytes from UVB rays. Finally, it inhibits glycation, a slow natural process that leads to the rigidification of collagen and elastin proteins in the dermis and, as a result, a loss of elasticity and premature skin aging. The skin thus retains all its suppleness and firmness.
