Fighting Skin Inflamm’Ageing with Magnolia
MAXnolia is a water-dispersible active powder based on magnolia bark extract.

Magnolia bark contains two potent anti-inflammatory substances, magnolol and honokiol which synergistically inhibit the activation of NF-ĸB, a key mediator in both inflammatory and ageing processes.

With age, the immune system becomes less effective and inflammatory activity increases. This can lead to chronic inflammation characterised by a slow but continuous production of free radicals causing wrinkles and sagging skin. The term “inflamm-ageing” describes this close relationship between inflammation and ageing.

Because of the low solubility of magnolol and honokiol in water, Mibelle Biochemistry has developed a technique to make a magnolia preparation which is both water-dispersible and rich in these active compounds. MAXnolia, the resulting product, is a powder suitable for topical application.

The soothing and anti-ageing effects of MAXnolia were confirmed by several in vivo studies.

MAXnolia was shown to:
• reduce facial skin redness
• improve the hydration and visco-elastic properties of the skin notably on the crow’s feet area.

Thus, MAXnolia is a potent active ingredient to fight skin inflamm’ageing.
