ALGAKTIV Zen is an exclusive microalgae blend with a revolutionary dual action
The skin is our largest sensorial organ; it communicates and reflects our wellbeing. The skin is deeply interconnected with the neurological system. Two neuronal reactions are the foundation of this inner connection – the neurological stress response and the circadian rhythm control.
Stress activates the sympathetic-adrenal-medullary (SAM) axis, which is responsible for the release of catecholamines. These stress mediators affect the epidermal balance by altering skin immunity, disrupting the barrier function and compromising genome integrity.
The circadian rhythm is controlled by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis through the release of corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH) and subsequently, glucocorticoids. These mediators impact skin homeostasis by causing skin atrophy, decreased epidermal thickness and other well-known signs of fatigue such as puffy eyes and dry skin.
ALGAKTIV Zen is an exclusive microalgae blend with a revolutionary dual action; its synergistic molecules restore the homeostasis of the skin by protecting the skin from inner stress signals and restoring its natural circadian rhythm.
Chronic stress, sleep deprivation and fatigue alter both the HPA and SAM axis, which causes the appearance of a tired and stressed skin. ALGAKTIV Zen inhibits these two key neurotransmitters creating a relaxed skin appearance and eluding premature ageing signals.
Based on the latest skin neuroscience, ALGAKTIV Zen creates a vast world of new cosmetic and skin care opportunities.
And this is just the beginning…the creative and aspiring magic world of cosmetics will uncover many more inspiring concepts...the ALGAKTIV team is looking forward to that!
This active will be officially launched at inCosmetics Paris 2016 and presented at the Innovation Zone, including a special session on skin neuroscience on Tuesday at 3 PM. Come join us!
