Phytosphingosine SLC is a novel sphingolipid derivative with unique anti-aging properties. Smoothes the appearance and reduces deep wrinkles of chronologically and photo-aged skin by restoring the dermal-epidermal junction and inducing the production of pro-collagen 1 in the papillary dermis.
Phytosphingosine SLC consists of the naturally occurring skin-identical molecule phyto-sphingosine (PS) with an attached salicylic acid moiety. It presents many features that combat the signs of aging on different levels of the skin.
Due to its ceramide character it acts on the stratum corneum by inducing both lipid synthesis and differentiation of keratinocytes to result in the strengthening of the skin barrier. Further, Phytosphingosine SLC possesses an anti-inflammatory potential. Especially on photoaged skin, Phytosphingosine SLC has shown to both stimulate the synthesis of procollagen and fibrillin, thus supplying building blocks to the ECM. Along this line, Phytosphingosine SLC reduces the expression of MMP-1 in photodamaged skin which prevents further ECM degradation.
