With Matribust , a patented natural firming active ingredient, designed specifically for the neck and décolleté area, Silab targets the modifications affecting the matrisome in case of skin sagging.
Indeed, the neck and décolleté area is fragile and exposed to the effects of time, gravity and external stresses and therefore often shows evidence of the early signs of aging.
According to Silab, Matribust is capable of revitalizing skin structures responsible for firmness by:
- regulating the matrisome of sagging skin at the level of the dermis and the DEJ;
- acting on the organization and density of dermal fibers, protecting them from fragmentation ;
- revitalizing the structure of the DEJ .
After 84 days of twice daily use on Caucasian volunteers and compared to the placebo, Matribust tested at 2.5% in an emulsion significantly increases elastic recovery (+22.9%), net elasticity (+18.0%) and tone (+12.5%) in the neck. These benefits have also been demonstrated in the décolleté.
A subjective evaluation confirms these results: the volunteers consider that their skin is firmer (95%), sags less and is improved overall (100%).
To develop Matribust, Silab added value to jojoba oil cakes, a by-product from the extraction of jojoba oil.
Silab chose the supply from a producer in the Negev desert, in southern Israel, who has been controlling the quality and traceability of its entire production for 25 years according to environment-friendly agricultural practices.
Furthermore, the implementation of an industrial process, based on a targeted enzymatic hydrolysis, has allowed to extract original active molecules from the oil cake: methylgalactinol and galactotriose type galacto-oligosaccharides.
Matribust is available in aqueous solution (recommended amount: 0.5 to 2.5%) and is compliant with international cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, Japan, China, etc.).
