Fighting glycation for rejuvenated skin

Mibelle’s new natural ingredient combats glycation, a process which has a negative impact on skin health.

In our ageing society, the increasing incidence of metabolic diseases such as diabetes poses substantial problems. The rising prevalence of diabetes is attributed to obesity linked with a sugar-rich diet. In the skin, a high presence of free sugar molecules causes glycation, a process where proteins and sugars are cross-linked to form advanced glycation end products (AGE). The formation of AGEs has a negative impact on the elasticity of the skin as cross-linked collagen and elastin fibers are stiffened. Furthermore, the yellow-brownish colour of AGEs leads to a change in skin tone towards a more yellow appearance. Additionally, AGEs lead to constant inflammatory processes which exacerbate the ageing effect of high sugar concentrations in the skin. Here we show a cosmetic approach with different testing methods to help prevent the formation of AGEs and to ameliorate the downstream effects of glycation in the skin using an extract of Ziziphus spina-christi leaves.
