Marine Bamboo TG is an enriched fraction of fucosterol and phyco-carotenoids extracted from the brown seaweed, Himanthalia elongata. In the alga, these marine substances are involved in the fight against the negative side effects of aging and sun.
Marine Bamboo TG protects against collagen destruction and maintains fibroblast activity by inhibiting MMP-1 and reducing the damage caused by Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). It also promotes collagen and elastin synthesis in aging cells.
In-Vivo studies show that after 28days, 3% Marine Bamboo TG versus placebo cream offers:
- Firmness +8%
- Tonicity +12%
- Reduction of TEWL
- Blurring effect.
