Magnolia: Magnolia has been used in traditional Chinese
medicine for over 2,000 years. It is extracted from the bark of the magnolia
tree and has outstanding antioxidant properties. Since oxidative stress is one
of the main causes of skin aging, Beiersdorf goes for this traditional
ingredient and can prove its stress-reducing effects on cultured skin cells.
Creatine is converted into an energy-rich form by the skin cells. When more
energy is needed, the cell can quickly take the energy back from it.
As a result, skin cells supercharged with energy due to adding creatine are
perfectly equipped to handle energy-depleting stress attacks and can also cover
increased energy needs when the skin needs to repair itself. Using products
containing creatine improves the skin’s structure and reduces fine wrinkles.
Hyaluronan: Beiersdorf researchers have
processed this important source of moisture so that in a cream, it can
penetrate to just the right depth in the skin and once there, help accumulate
moisture and fill in small wrinkles.
antiaging ingredient arctiin is found in highly concentrated form in the fruit
extract of the regionally cultivated Arctium lappa “nuda” plant. In cell
cultures, arctiin exhibits extremely positive effects on the production of new
coenzyme plays a key role in the process of extracting energy from nutrients
that is necessary for skin metabolism in the cells. The level of Q10 in the
skin decreases with age; if it is introduced to the skin in a cream, the skin’s
energy level can increase measurably.
