stevisse™ is an organic stevia leaf-based extract, obtained using subcritical water extraction technology, offers a gentler and more natural alternative to retinoids for similar rejuvenating results without the negative side effects.
Mechanism of Action
stevisse™'s retinoid-like mechanism has shown in vitro to promote cellular resistance to oxidative stress, prevent the degradation of essential ECM proteins and to inhibit one of the skin’s pro-inflammatory pathways. Retinoids reduce the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), which contribute to the degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. They can also activate a specific transcription factor that, in turn, activates the skin’s antioxidant response. The topical application of retinoids is also associated with undesirable effects related to skin inflammation, which causes many consumers to avoid use. Stevia can be considered a gentler and more natural alternative to retinoids, offering a similar rejuvenating effect without the negative side effects.
In vivo, stevisse™ has shown in vitro helped to minimize the appearance of wrinkles associated with aging. Visible attenuation of wrinkles associated with aging (-87.3% in wrinkle area, 28 days), as showed in vivo.
