The signs of skin ageing

Skin ageing is expressed by the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, a less radiant complexion, and a loss of firmness and elasticity of the skin.
This is due to the slowing down of the metabolism of the epidermis over time, depending on the genetic make-up and lifestyle of each individual. The slowing down of the skin’s metabolism is also caused by the aggression of the epidermis by external, environmental factors that accelerate ageing, such as exposure to ultra-violet rays, stress, lack of sleep, pollution, etc.

What are the symptoms of mature skin?

Mature skin has visible symptoms, but can also show more subtle signs.

Skin cells renew themselves more slowly with age, slowing down the production of lipids on the skin’s surface and the restoration of its lipid barrier.
As a result, the epidermis can become drier and its ability to heal is weakened.
The production of collagen, which is responsible for the skin’s elasticity, also decreases over time. As a result, the lower layers of the skin become less structured, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the surface.

Our ingredients for mature skin formulas

Treating the symptoms of skin ageing is not enough. It is preferable to slow down the appearance of these symptoms thanks to a healthy lifestyle: practising sport, good nutrition, stopping smoking, and protecting the skin from UV rays all help.

As for skin care, the ideal is to preserve the good health of the skin by moisturising it regularly, and by trying to restore the skin’s lipid barrier. For this, our emollient ingredients of natural origin are particularly effective. Phytosqualan, Insapolive or Biophytosebum (which replaces silicones in cosmetics) contain squalane or squalene of olive origin, and offer moisturising and repairing functions. Our vegetable oils, such as argan oil, as well as our cosmetic butters, such as shea butter, have great moisturising properties, and for some, antioxidant properties, for example, or regenerative properties, providing additional protection for the skin.
