Protectami proven to improve elastin synthesis

Alban Muller’s Protectami ingredient has been proven in vitro to increase elastin synthesis.

The purified extract of Padina, a brown algae from the Mediterranean Sea, is an anti-pollution and anti-ageing active that has recently been shown to reduce the enzymatic activity of proteases and elastase, thereby boosting elastin synthesis.

The test shows an increase in cytokeratins and desmosomal proteins with Protectami improving cell communication between keratinocytes.
