8 NATURAL LIFTERS IN THE SKIN: The secret to youth
After more than 10 years of research, L'Oréal Paris has identified the existence of 8 natural lifters deep within the skin, which help skin look youthful, firm and wrinkle free. However, from the age of 40 their production decreases; wrinkles settle and the face gradually loses its firmness.
Located in the dermal-epidermal junction and the outer-most layer of the dermis, the 8 natural lifters play both a biological and structural role: They work by creating a horizontal and vertical network to re-tighten the skin and re-plump from within, which helps strengthen tone and cohesion.
These lifters can be grouped according to three main functions:
THE TAUTENING LIFTERS to help firm the skin and to help it regain its tone:
1. COLLAGEN I
THE RE-PLUMPING LIFTERS to plump the skin from within:
5. CHONDROITIN S
THE STABILISING LIFTERS to ensure cohesion between the different layers of the skin:
