Modern consumers increasingly take a more holistic approach to their health. They try to counteract the negative effects of city life and stress with sports, a healthy diet and conscious time-outs. In the same way, skin needs to be taken care of.
When it comes to the aging of skin, three factors are crucial – time, external and internal stress. All three factors lead to cells increasingly going into senescence, a condition in which they no longer do anything beneficial to the skin, but can still release harmful substances, causing e.g. inflammaging.
Living in urban environments amplifies the main factors for accelerated skin aging. External stress factors such as air pollution, UV radiation, dry air from heating systems, among other conditions have just as many negative effects on skin as the psychological stress consumers are exposed to in everyday life.
CutiGuard CLR™ is based on an extremophilic red alga, Galdieria sulphuraria. This alga occurs in Iceland’s hot sulfur springs in extremely hostile environments. In order to survive, it uses horizontal gene transfer and thus adapts optimally to the prevailing conditions. The algea are grown locally and sustainably in Germany. In a sustainable fermentation process, CLR transfers the adaptivity and resilience of Galdieria sulphuraria to a highly effective active ingredient that protects the skin in stressful environments.
CutiGuard CLR™ takes a refined approach to the first signs of skin aging. It acts strongly against cell senescence. CutiGuard CLR™ reduces wrinkles and significantly improves skin smoothness as well as the evenness of skin color – three crucial factors for a healthy and young appearance.
