Triple action to fight urban pollution with Depolluphane EpiPlus

Full Skin Protection against Pollution

Depolluphane EpiPlus consists of an organic cress sprout extract and an artichoke extract that are combined with a smart polysaccharide complex in order to protect the skin against pollution.

Environmental pollution is one of the main contributing factors towards skin ageing and a dull complexion.

Pollution causes the formation of free radicals in the skin that lead to cell damage, inflammation and accelerated skin ageing.

In addition, recent research has shown that pollution influences the epigenetic signature of cells. Consequently, it is also important to prevent these long-term effects of pollution.

The cress sprouts that are used in the production of Depolluphane EpiPlus contain sulforaphane.

This is a molecule that promotes cellular detoxification and the production of antioxidant enzymes. The smart polysaccharide complex shields the skin from environmental pollution and strengthens the skin barrier to ensure a more resilient skin.

In a placebo-controlled clinical study, it shielded the skin against atmospheric pollution and facilitated the removal of microparticles. The artichoke extract prevents epigenetic changes that are caused by pollution in skin cells.

Working together, these components protect the skin from the immediate, short-term and long-term effects of pollution.
