Soon, anti-wrinkle cream that will 'trick' human skin cells to regenerate

   Jan 2, 11:29 am

London, Jan 2 (ANI): A leading cosmetic company will soon be coming out with a new range of anti-ageing cream that will 'trick' human skin cells into regenerating themselves.

The products, meant for smoothing out wrinkles and repairing damaged skin, have been created by experts in 'glycobiology', the science of using naturally occurring sugars to improve health.

L'Oreal expects that its shot at harnessing the technology, registered as Glycanactif, will prove a popular addition to the 2billion pounds British cosmetics market.

Artificial chemicals have been developed to mimic the behaviour of natural chemicals, which penetrate the surface and stimulate the regeneration of skin cells, the Daily Mail reported.

These natural chemicals become less active with age, so it is expected that the cream would cause a manufactured stimulus to the skin to apparently improve its condition and appearance as if the body was much younger.

Reportedly, the researchers have found improvements in skin's elasticity, thickness and smoothness.

"There is still much more to cell signalling and the ageing process, but all the cosmetics we had before were acting on the surface," Bruno Bernard, research director at L'Oreal, said.

"Now we are able to create a rejuvenating effect on the deeper levels of the skin," Bernard added. (ANI)
