Aging is a complex process caused by multiple factors, both hereditary and environmental. Skin cells are constantly exposed to strong oxidants and free radicals – known as reactive oxygen species (ROS) – and oxidative stress caused by external and/or internal sources. The skin is naturally endowed with an antioxidant machinery that is not fully efficient as seen most obviously in aging.
A new study testing the fermented papaya product Immun’Âge® on skin aging has just been published. The goal of this study is to determine whether taking Immun’Âge® could improve the physiological skin antioxidant mechanisms and key ‘skin gene expression’ thus boosting anti-aging effect on the skin.
The results of this study suggest that the antioxidative properties of Immun’Âge® provide benefits against skin aging as they trigger a consistent biological and gene-regulatory improvement at skin level. The skin moisturization mechanisms improve and the skin becomes smoother and regains elasticity. It counteracts the environmental factors that accelerate skin aging.
