Matrikines anti-wrinkle complex helps reverse the chronological ageing as attested by the regulation of senescence markers and reduce the cutaneous photo damage by restructuring the fragile network of the papillary dermis. Matrixyl® has received the in-cosmetics 25 years of Innovation Award in 2015.

Restores skin’s metabolism of youth. New study reconfirms previous findings

Karl lintner: the history of Martrixyl


The natural skincare ingredient that nourishes and moisturizes the skin and keep it as it best

Every day, indoor and outdoor stress negatively affects the skin’s natural hydration, causing it to dry out much faster.  The key needs of skin exposed to urban stress are fast-acting and long-term hydration with targeted care for problem areas. Used daily, the skincare ingredient PENTAVITIN® provides powerful hydration to all facial areas. Regular use of the natural skin bioactive PENTAVITIN® brings tired and dry skin back to life, giving consumers a confidence boost and a smile on their face. Consumer test panels confirm reduction in flakiness and itchiness caused by dry skin and skin becomes visibly smoother.

Biodiversity is crucial for healthy looking skin

Healthy looking or normal skin harbors an increased diversity of microbial species compared to damaged skin. Our modern lifestyles have resulted in the loss of a large part of the microbial diversity on our skin. Changes in the normal bacterial diversity can contribute to the development of inflammation or other skin disorders. New studies reveal that DSM’s PENTAVITIN® not only nourishes and moisturizes skin, but also increases bacterial diversity.

Niacinamide is a derivative of Vitamin B3 that suppresses melanin from reaching the surface of the skin and protects the skin from further UV damage. Too much melanin (which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that is responsible for both its color the skin’s absorption of UV rays) can result in age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation. According to a study done by Proctor and Gamble, data revealed that 5% Niacinamide applied to the face for 12 weeks resulted in reductions of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness, and skin sallowness (yellowing). In addition, elasticity (as measured via cutometry) was improved.


* Vitamin A * An active acne and anti-aging ingredient

Retinol is Vitamin A in its whole molecule form, which can be broken down into thousands of smaller components, including Retinoic Acid (or Tretinoin, the active ingredient in Renova and Retin-A). It belongs to the family of chemical compounds known as retinoids and is one of the most important vitamins for the appearance of the skin because of its small molecular structures. These tiny molecules have the ability to penetrate the outer layers of the skin and work to repair the lower layers where collagen and elastin reside, according to Vitamin A is thought to renew and regenerate skin cells and stimulate new collagen production; to have antioxidant properties; and to serve as a skin exfoliator, unclogging pores and effectively treating and preventing acne.


In fact, vitamin C has been hailed as an anti-aging gem for some time now. According to research, vitamin C has been shown to help protect and repair skin cells. Not only does the nutrient wipe away free radicals, but it can also remove the DNA damage that the radicals form.

The visible benefits of this super vitamin? Wrinkle and hyperpigmentation reduction, protection against photoaging and collagen stimulation.


According to, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a water-soluble, non-irritating, stable derivative of Vitamin C. It has the same potential as vitamin C to boost skin collagen synthesis but is effective in significantly lower concentrations and can be used at concentrations as low as 10% to suppress melanin formation (in skin-whitening solutions). It is also important to note that Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate may be better choice than Vitamin C for people with sensitive skin and those wishing to avoid any exfoliating effects since many Vitamin C formulas are highly acidic (and therefore produce exfoliating effects).


While you can get your daily dose of vitamin C from food sources like oranges, grapefruits, and strawberries there is significant proof that topical application of vitamin C serums may enrich your skin even further. The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology published research that concluded, “appreciable photoprotection can be obtained from the combination of topical vitamins C and E.” And another study determined that spreading a vitamin C serum over your skin might correct aging-associated structural changes that occur over the years.

TOCOPHERAL (vitamin E)

A 2005 Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology article gives the application of topical vitamin E credit for reducing erythema, sunburn cells and chronic UV-B-induced skin damage. Topical vitamin E for skin was more effective than the oral dosage. Combinations of vitamins C and E together make an even better case for photoprotective effects.


Works as a natural skin emollient, lubricant and cleanser. For centuries, native Americans used it to treat ailments such as wounds, burns, sores and cuts. A 2005 article in Pharmacological Research documents jojoba oil as having anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties as well. Furthermore, because its structure and function resembles that of the lipid content of skin, it is also classified as a Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). As an NMF, it helps keep the intercellular structure of the epidermis intact and effectively  keeps bacteria out, facilitates the skin’s healing process, prevents dermal irritation and regenerates the skin.

Research conducted at the University of Michigan proves that this ingredient quickly penetrates the skin, so quickly, in fact, that the pores are able to stay open and continue functioning properly. The skin’s rapid absorption of Jojoba Oil is what classifies it as noncomedogenic-meaning it doesn’t clog the pores to cause blackheads or pimples to form. In turn, by keeping the pores wide open with full absorption capabilities, it’s also believed to enhance the delivery of other cosmetic ingredients.

Most skin care experts highly regard Jojoba Oil as an effective skin conditioner, softener and smoother because because of its close resemblance to the natural sebum secreted by human glands. In fact, its moisturizing abilities are essentially doubled, because in addition to the skin’s fast absorption of its sebum-like molecules, it also forms a lipid layer on the skin that helps retain moisture levels. n addition, its straight chain molecular composition gives it superior stability, preventing it from ever oxidizing or deteriorating.
