ID bio helps to fight pollution with Cell’intact

During the recent in cosmetics tradeshow in Barcelona, ID bio has unveiled new studies carried out on its latest active ingredient extracted from buckwheat seeds, Cell’intact. These complementary results answer the consumers’ request to fight against urban pollution and the consecutive cutaneous aggressions.

Nowadays, we are facing a growing and worrying phenomenon; more and more cities are concerned by pollution peaks due to the gradual increase of people living in urban areas and to the development of manufacturing companies,” says the company.

ID bio has decided to carry on new studies on its latest active ingredient Cell’intact [1]. An ex vivo evaluation, has been realized on reconstructed epidermis to prove its efficiency in presence of a pollutant (benzo[a]pyrene).

The results of this study show that Cell’intact enables to:

  • reduce the proinflammatory answer by acting on interleukin-8 (IL-8), a marker protein that overreacts in case of pollution and leads to cutaneous discomfort. “Cell’intact at 3% enables to reduce by -26,2% the IL-8 release against polluted control. The skin is less reactive and cells are zen, relaxed,” claims ID bio.
  • rebuild and reinforce the architectural epidermis network via the protection of tight junctions’ proteins (Claudins-1 and -4) to avoid premature aging. “Skin is more resistant to aggressions (exhaust gases, industrial smokes, tobacco, etc.) and aging signs are kept away.

According to ID bio, those results show the large scope of intervention of the active ingredient that creates “a complete and natural shield against pollution and environmental attacks.
