Gardenia and rose skin care products. Collagen is the basic skin ingredient which is responsible for its firm and youthful appearance. Like most structural elements of the skin, it is constantly renewed. With the beginning of ageing, acceleration of the collagen degradation processes is observed, which determines the skin’s sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. Many environmental factors such as UV rays, smoking, chlorinated water, free radicals and inflammatory processes activate collagenases. They are enzymes responsible for the degradation of collagen. The gardenia stem-cell extract acts on three basic levels:
- It stimulates collagen synthesis. - It slows down the processes of collagen degradation. - It inhibits the synthesis of collagenases The efficacy of collagen synthesis stimulation is comparable in its effect to the activity of vitamin C.
