The skin, a reflection of our emotional state
As a mirror of our emotions, the face is particularly stressed and reveals stressful situations. The tension of facial muscles and the secretion of stress mediators in the skin are responsible for the premature appearance of expression wrinkles and a dull complexion.
In order to meet the needs of stressed skin, SILAB has chosen to beneficially use the power of minerals from watercress to target the behavioural and biological consequences of stress.
A “botox-like” mineral elixir promoting skin well-being
MYOLINE® has a myorelaxing action in vitro by acting on the neuromuscular junction. This efficacy is reflected in vivo by a “botox-like” effect. As of 5 days of treatment, the first expression lines of young skin are smoothed, and the wrinkles of mature skin are blurred with an effect comparable to that obtained with a retouched photo ("soft focus" effect).
MYOLINE® also influences the secretion of well-being mediators: the oxytocin and endocannabinoid pathways of the skin are stimulated to improve skin homeostasis. The volunteers' perception of stress is reduced, and the quality of their skin is improved: the barrier function is thus restored, hydration increased, and the radiance of the complexion enhanced.
The watercress: a local, traced and secured supply
Faithful to its responsible strategy, SILAB has favoured local, traced, secure and environmentally friendly sourcing. The company is part of an upcycling approach by processing watercress of quality not used for the food sector. The authentication of the raw material was carried out using the molecular barcoding technique, thus securing the supply.
SILAB is committed to supporting the watercress farm in the construction of an industrial dryer, thus making it possible to control the quality of the raw materials supplied and to diversify the farmer's activities. MYOLINE® is a patented active ingredient recommended at the amount of 0.5 to 2.0%. Available in aqueous solution, it is easy to formulate. It complies with regulations on biodiversity, displays a natural content of 99.2% (ISO 16128) and meets with international cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, China, Japan, etc.).
