The extract of Agarikon mushroom (Fomes Officinalis)
LARICYL® LS 8865 is obtained from Fomes officinalis, a mushroom also commonly called Polyporus officinalis. This bulky basidiomycete grows on the bark of larch trees, is shaped like a rounded cone, and is covered by a hard,cracked rind with yellow or brown spots. In the old French Pharmacopeia Fomes officinalis extract was known and used as an elixir of long life. This miracle herb has:
Cutaneous Astringency Effect
- This effect, immediately perceptible as a local sensation of cutaneous tightening, can produce an improvement of the skin’s tone, or firmness.
- As we age, our skin’s elasticity decreases. Cellular activity slows in the epidermal basal layer, the skin’s defense against environmental attack is compromised, cell turnover and vitality decrease and the skin loses its firmness.
- The fight against loss of skin tone is preferably based on prevention, by helping the skin to defend itself against external attack. Another approach is to apply actives that stimulate epidermal cellular renewal or strengthen the dermal extracellular matrix, e.g. LIPODERMOL® LS 8656 or FIRMIDERM® LS 9120.
- Lastly, one may use astringent actives such as LARICYL® LS 8865 that produce an immediate tightening effect.
Pore Tightening Effect: In addition to its perceptible astringency, LARICYL® LS 8865 tightens pores, which is particularly useful for oily skin of the forehead and nose.
The Extract Of Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)
Clinical studies on Horse Chestnut have proven the effectiveness of horse chestnut and its active ingredient – escin – on improving the health of the skin. Apart from improving the health of veins and capillaries, it also improves circulation in the skin, and since it strengthens the capillaries – it helps to prevent “capillary fragility” which leads to leaking from the capillaries into the tissue, which causes oedema. Puffiness and edema, caused by capillary leaking, is prevented and corrected with the application of this compound and the triterpene glycoside contains anti-exudative and vascular astringent, which reduces the lysosomal enzymes activity, which normally is found in people with problems with their veins and circulation. It also assists in reducing the breakdown of glycoacalyx (mucopolysaccharides) in the capillary walls. It acts as an antioxidant, to inhibit the enzymes collagenase and elastase, which results in healthier collagen and supportive skin structures, leading to a healthier, younger looking skin, while the excellent anti-inflammatory action further promotes a clear healthy skin – making it a clear favorite for use in anti-aging skin care products. Ours is extracted from the nut of the horse chestnut tree, Aesculus hippocastanum and is classified as a biological product.
