Scientific results:

 

In vitro study

Macaderm™ :

- Increases collagen IV synthesis by 46 %.
- Enhances integrins synthesis by 54%

 

Ex-vivo study

Macaderm™ increases in the stratum corneum the expression of genes encoding for:

- Proteins involved in cell-cell junctions
- Proteins engaged in the corneocyte maturation
- Enzymes synthesizing the extra cellular matrix molecules
- Cross-linking enzymes in charge of the cohesion between the cell and the extracellular matrix

 

These results contribute to :

- Improving the density of the basement membrane lattice
