Bounce back skin recovery serum formulation
This skin care serum formulation helps to rebalance skin from the visible effects of daily stress. Its “memory form” texture engages the senses by quickly recovering when pressed.
Stress triggers cortisol release in the skin. Small amounts of cortisol help handle stress, but excessive amounts of cortisol can damage the skin, causing unwanted visible signs of ageing like lines and wrinkles, less elasticity, and reduced barrier functionality. With BEL-EVEN®, DSM has designed and patented a new cosmetic active ingredient that inhibits in vitro 11β-HSD1. BEL-EVEN® was specifically developed for skin care applications by using a rational design approach. It locally rebalances the negative, long-term effects of stress on skin and visibly reduces signs of a stressful lifestyle.
The human skin naturally responds to periods of stress with the formation of more cortisol through a particular enzyme; 11β-HSD1. This release of cortisol, the so-called stress hormone, is a normal and healthy adaptation reflex. However, cortisol can turn into an enemy of the skin if it remains in excess over a long period of time.
BEL-EVEN® selectively inhibits the enzyme 11β-HSD1, particularly in keratinocytes, but also in fibroblasts, leading to rebalanced cortisol levels. This well-defined mechanism helps your skin to manage the undesired effects of a stressful lifestyle and skin elasticity, density and barrier functionality will improve.
