New from ID bio is Evolu'age, a 'well ageing' active sourced from Okinawa.
The Japanese island has four to five times more centenaries than Western populations: 80 for every 100,000 inhabitants.
Food is considered to be a factor with getto (Alpinia speciosa) leaves at the heart of the Okinawa diet.
Evolu'age is an extract of getto leaves; used at 2% in a study of 25 urban women between 40 and 60 years old, the ingredient was found to smooth skin texture and enhance skin glow in just 28 days.
It enhances a healthy connection between the epidermis and dermis via the improvement of dermal-epidermal junction anchoring, while boosting DEJ markers, such as laminin 5.
