As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin decreases and enzymes like matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) increase, leading to signs of aging such as roughness or reduction of firmness. Actifcol™ behaves as a strong anti-oxidant that reduces the damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as lipid peroxidation. It assists with type I collagen synthesis and boosts PLOD1 levels, which contributes to protein quality, while reducing carbamylation, the degradation of protein, which “may be considered a hallmark of aging”.
