Macaderm™ acts as a skin firmer by improving epidermis cohesion and structure.
Macaderm™ compounds stimulate keratinocytes through 2 paths. It
helps to increase the synthesis of collagen IV by 46% compared to
The basement membrane has therefore a lattice structure to which other components and adjacent cells can affix themselves. Moreover, it improves the integrins synthesis by 54% compared to control.
Located at the surface of the keratinocytes, these molecules are promoting cellular adhesion with the extra cellular matrix and the basement membrane. They also ensure the chemical and mechanical communication between cells. As a consequence, the skin is rejuvenated.
Naturex’s latest genomic study confirms the efficacy of Macaderm™
on cellular cohesion and skin firmness. This ingredient stimulates
the metabolic paths of genes involved in junctions between cells,
antimicrobial protection and homeostasis of the dermal tissue.
