Gattefossé fights gravity

Gattefossé has developed EleVastin, a 100% biobased ingredient which it describes as an “all-natural solution designed to fight gravity-induced skin sagging"

Gattefossé has developed EleVastin, a 100% biobased ingredient which it describes as an “all-natural solution designed to fight gravity-induced skin sagging”. The new product strengthens the elasticity of the skin, giving it the support needed to cope with this downward pressure and restore volumes of the lower face, it is claimed.

EleVastin first boosts the synthesis of key proteins for the assembly of functional elastic fibres, elastin, fibrillin-1 and fibulin-5. It also protects the elastic fibres from degradation by inhibiting the proteolytic activity of MMP-12. Through this mechanism of action, the company said, “it ensures an increase of the density of elastic fibres, coupled with an augmented skin elasticity”.

This was tested using spheroids treated with 0.1% EleVastin in Gattefossé’s cell culture laboratory against an untreated control, which proved the recovery of proper tissue elasticity. Further tested at 1% on 37 volunteers, it proved its ability to reduce drooping of the lower face. Various assessment methods demonstrated its performance on skin elasticity and facial contour redefinition. In addition, the impact of gravity on the lower face was significantly reduced by 49%.
