Hormonal ageing is becoming increasingly recognised as a skin care category focused on addressing the transformations that occur when hormone levels decline during menopause and later stages of life. Menopausal ageing includes concerns like skin dryness, collagen loss, slower regeneration and repair processes, and consequently accelerated formation of facial wrinkles.
Vytrus Biotech leverages its biotechnology expertise to develop specially formulated actives within this category, which not only draw inspiration from the natural world but also explore novel concepts in cosmetic science to target the signs of hormonal ageing.
The biotech company proposes a plant biotechnology strategy based on Signalling lipids from wild olive stem cell membranes for the stimulation of Mitochondrial Synapses. This becomes particularly relevant as our bodies undergo a natural ageing process marked by a decrease in the generation of new mitochondria and a reduced capacity to form Mitochondrial Synapses (MS), that ultimately contribute to a decline in both cell vitality and functionality. The active ingredient Olea Vitae™ tackles the depletion of MS associated with Energetic Ageing, by restoring the charging potential of cell internal batteries (mitochondria) and enhancing their energy production capacity.
Within plant lipids from plant stem cell membranes, in addition to the diverse fatty acids prevalent in vegetable oils, a variety of intricate lipids can be found, such as phospholipids, sphingolipids, glycolipids, sulfolipids, ceramides, free sterols, fatty alcohols, sterol and wax esters, among others, with some of them being particularly abundant.
The revitalising effect of Olea Vitae™ on mature skin is greatly enhanced by the lipid replenishment strategy, thanks to its abundant presence of a specific lipid raft—sphingolipids. These essential sphingolipids serve as the fundamental constituents of ceramides, well-known for their essential role in strengthening the skin's protective barrier. This, in turn, results in a reinforced stratum corneum and re-densified skin, as evidenced by clinical evaluation findings.
Olea Vitae™, recognised at in-cosmetics Global 2019 for the Gold Best Ingredient award, introduces a pioneering approach to rejuvenating ageing cells by revitalising their energy levels through the stimulation of cellular mitochondrial synapses. As a result, this active functions as an energetic rejuvenator, effectively restoring the skin's vitality by enhancing cellular energy levels to a more youthful state.
Are you currently engaged in the development of cosmetic formulations aimed at promoting well-ageing and rejuvenation in skin care treatments? Explore Olea Vitae™, a 100% natural active ingredient derived from wild olive tree stem cells that unveils a plant-based approach to fight energetic ageing, tested in volunteers in their menopause and postmenopause stages. This innovative ingredient is designed to facilitate cellular revival and revitalise mature skin by replenishing its hydration and structural integrity.
