Let your skin blossom
Oil-based extract from the South American lapacho tree, Lubrizol Life Science Beauty’s Lapagyl advanced botanical ingredient promises to slow aging of facial skin.
Lapagyl advanced botanical ingredient is an oil-based lapacho bark extract that promotes a slower ageing process and an increased skin longevity, which leads to a radiant, younger and improved appearance.
As we age, the telomeres that protect our skin cell chromosomes shorten, which causes cellular senescence and skin ageing. This botanical ingredient works by helping to delay the shortening of telomeres which forestalls the signs of ageing skin.
In vivo testing demonstrated the efficacy of Lapagyl advanced botanical ingredient. In a clinical test of 30 female volunteers, the subjects used a cream containing 3% ingredient on half their face and a placebo cream on the other half twice a day for 28 days. The depth of crow’s feet wrinkles decreased 21.6% while skin radiance and moisturisation increased, 24.4% and 17.9%, respectively.
A test with 2% Lapagyl advanced botanical ingredient showed improvement in the firmness of the upper eyelid and reduced eyelid drooping.
The source of this ingredient is the lapacho tree, the national tree of Paraguay. It was known as the “tree of life” by the Incas, who revered it for its healing properties. LLS Beauty obtains the bark from a 100% women-owned family company that works closely with small producers and growers. The supplier also provided baby lapacho trees to farmers to plant them for future growth while supporting reforestation. The extraction process itself is sustainable and the ingredient is COSMOS approved and of 100% natural origin content.
Ageing cannot be stopped, but the outward signs of it can be slowed. Lapagyl advanced botanical ingredient will let users retain their youthful looks longer by delaying the onset of the appearance of aging.
This botanical ingredient is ideal for use in daily skin care products, in oil-based formulations for complete care of mature skin or as part of a natural cosmetic formulation with the aim to improve skin longevity.
