Robustyl®


Description:

The strength of robusta coffee for a more robust skin!

DEFINITION:
Robustyl® is obtained as a hydroglycolic extract from green coffee beans (Coffea canephora or robusta), with no added preservatives.

MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Coffea robusta ows its name to its ability to withstand its environment thanks to its high concentration in xanthic bases (caffeine) and polyphenols. The development of Robustyl® aims to boost skin physical resistances and to fight against microbial aggressions. Thus, it ensures a good robustness and the protection of the skin barrier:
- helping form well-structured tissue with greater expression of the genes coding for differentiation markers (cytokeratin, caspase 14 and transglutaminase),
- facilitating mechanical communication (i.e. cohesion) between cells by stimulating synthesis of an adhesive protein, desmoglein, and relocate it to the junction anchors,
- developing the skin's defenses against bacteria by increasing expression of a gene coding for an antimicrobial peptide (psoriasin).

Defense-stimulating care
