Silab targets the mitochondrion to revitalize skin

The mitochondrion is the only generator of cellular energy. Chronic or acute stress can cause its dysfunction, which then gives rise to harmful effects on the skin. In order to protect this key cellular component, Silab is launching Algophagyl, an energizing active ingredient capable of preserving the equilibrium and correct functioning of mitochondria by activating three defensive levers:

  • the quality control of mitochondria;
  • the mitochondrial dynamics;
  • the mitophagy. 

Because microalgae are the basis of life, Silab’s Research is focusing on the metabolic and adaptogenic properties of the microalga Chlorella sorokiniana in order to ensure the protection of the mitochondrion by enabling it to adapt to its environment and boosting its metabolism. When healthy, mitochondria produce the necessary energy for cell regeneration and for establishing a dynamic and effective skin barrier,” said Silab in a release.

Algophagyl (INCI name: Chlorella sorokiniana Extract) is obtained from the microalga Chlorella sorokiniana, industrially manufactured in Silab biotechnologies production unit. The heterotrophic culture of this microalga, which means grown in darkness, obliges it to synthetize molecules of specific interest with high added value. Algophagyl is a patented active ingredient rich in glucans and galactans, available in aqueous solution (recommended amount: 0.5 to 2%) and compliant with the main cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, Japan).

Tested on Caucasian and/or Asian volunteers, Algophagyl improves the quality of the skin. Reloaded with energy, the skin is radiant, the complexion luminous,” claims the company.
