Skin care ingredient producer, Rahn, will be addressing thermal ageing at in-cosmetics Global 2017, with the launch of Defensil-Soft. The company is represented by Siyeza Fine Chemicals in South Africa.
The pain receptor TRPV1, which is expressed in the sensory neurons and keratinocytes of the epidermis, regulates the skin’s comfort zone. Elevated levels of TRPV1 may lead to increased skin sensitivity and unpleasant sensations caused by sunburn or chemical peels for example. Heat stress caused by IR-light can also activate TRPV1, which induces typical ageing processes such as enhanced collagen degradation. This modern form of pre-mature skin ageing caused by heat stress is also known as thermal ageing.
An innovative active ingredient
Defensil-Soft is a neuro-balm, which blocks TRPV1 and upgrades the skin’s comfort zone. The active ingredient is based on the edible mushroom, Albatrellus ovinus, also known as the northern truffle.
Defensil-Soft is certified to the COSMOS-standard and Ecocert approved. When applied on skin, it provides zen-like soothing and anti-ageing effects. It reduces skin discomfort and irritation within minutes, increases the heat-pain tolerance of normal and ultra-sensitive skin, prevents IR-ageing by protecting from IR-induced heat stress and improves skin’s tolerance towards irritants in cosmetics formulations.
