Iselight’s active chemical rejuvenates the skin and reduces the signs of aging.

Skin aging is a natural process caused by many factors, such as sun exposure, pollution, dietary habits, stress and, of course, aging itself. Our skin begins to show visible signs ag aging at about 40 years, with a loss of elasticity, wrinkles, dryness and dark spots around the face and hands.


What causes these signs to appear?

The signs of aging are formed by increased melanin and excess lipofuscin within the cell. Lipofuscin is a response to cell aging, in which the organism loses some of its capacity to “clean” or recycle cells, leading to excess “waste” caused by free radical molecules.

This demonstrates that the human organism has a natural disfunction in cell regeneration, causing aging spots to appear. We can safely say that aging is not caused simply by external factors.


As this is a natural process, how can you choose the best treatment? 

Since this is a biological issue, studies show that stimulating autophagy (a natural cell recycling process) is one way to help treat signs of aging. The main purpose of this mechanism is to degrade macroproteins and damaged organelles, generating substrates and energy create new components.

Autophagy gained further notoriety after Japanese researcher Yoshinori Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2016 for his discoveries on autophagy to better understand illnesses such as Parkinson’s and dementia.

However, autophagy is not enough to prevent the formation of lipofuscin. Proteasome is another sophisticated mechanism of our cells, and it’s just as important as autophagy, due to its ability to renew smaller, damaged proteins.

After researching the best ways to improve cellular metabolism and act upon the root cause of aging signs, our company developed Iselight, whose action mechanism can stimulate both autophagy and proteasome activity.

Iselight is a natural, plant-based active chemical that is free of preservatives. It is composed of a synergetic combination of Myrothamnus flabellifolia extract, a resurrection plant commonly used in traditional African medicine, and Coffea arabica extract, an importance source of antioxidants obtained through upcycling.


What are the results from using Iselight?

Thanks to its innovative mechanism, Iselight shows high performance results, including:

·       Improved homogeneity in facial skin tone by 42% after 28 days;

·       Reduced contrast between the spot and the skin by 37% after 28 days;

·       Improved homogeneity in hand skin tone by 63% after 56 days;

·       Reduced average size of spots on the hands by 26% after 56 days;

·       Up to 50% improvement in skin texture uniformity (anisotropy);


Why bet on cosmetic products for aging?

It is estimated that, by 2050, there will be two people over the age of 65 for every person aged zero to four years. Since 2017, the number of people aged 60 or more has grown by 3% every year – and this age group already represents 13% of the global population.

With this increase in life expectancy, skin rejuvenation solutions, that contribute towards the well-being and quality of life of the elderly, are now highly sought after by consumers.
