Water (and) Bifurcaria bifurcata extract (and) acetyl-tyrosine
BRONZ’ALG® combines a calibrated aqueous extract of the brown seaweed Bifurcaria bifurcata with acetyl-tyrosine that enhances the penetration of the algal extract into the skin.
BRONZ’ALG® is able significantly to up-regulate the major genes of melanogenesis pathways.
In addition BRONZ’ALG® guarantees efficient skin protection against free radicals and both UVA and UVB radiation, that helps maintain a harmonious tan and improve the skin’s own natural UV protection.
BRONZ’ALG® is able significantly to up-regulate the MITF promoter and the melanogenic enzymes tyrosinase –tyrosinase-related protein-1, but also to influence different genes of the Wnt/catenin and endothelin/protein kinase pathways implicated in melanin formation, all that makes more compelling the pro-pigmenting capability of BRONZ’ALG®.
This benefit for increasing melanin synthesis has been confirmed by in vitro studies. After 6 days application, with 0.5% BRONZ’ALG®, the synthesis of melanin increases by +30% compared to the control.
Photographs from histological staining observations illustrate
- the increasing of melanin content in cells whatever the tested concentration in active, thereby BRONZ’ALG® increases skin pigmentation independent of exposure to the sun,
- the good preservation of tissues after topical application, that proves the cutaneous acceptability of the product.
The results of the clinical tests on volunteers indicated that BRONZ’ALG® accelerates UV-tanning and revives dull skin for a healthier glowing complexion.
In addition BRONZ’ALG® protects the skin against free radicals and both UVA and UVB radiation, that helps maintain a harmonious tan and improve the skin’s own natural UV protection.
