pro YOUTH® is a rich youth-prolonging 100% plant-derived complex specifically designed for younger skins that need to prevent the wrinkles formation. It is aimed at inhibiting the 3 main irreversible processes of ageing: glycation, collagenase and oxidation.
Its main ingredient – Akebia Quinata – contains myo-inositol (titrated), an active compound with antiglycating properties which protects proteins of the connective tissue the layer where all the upper substrates of the epidermis lay upon.
pro YOUTH® also stimulates a marked action on fibroblasts thanks to the action of extracts with hormone-like effects, activating the production of Collagen and Elastin, and Integrin Alpha 2 and Beta 1.
In a cream containing 2% pro YOUTH, in-vivo tests shows a short-term moisturizing activity: +23% in skin hydration after 1 hour. It has also been demonstrated a long-term moisturizing activity: +21% and +27% in skin hydration after 15 and 30 days and -11% in TEWL after 30 days

• Soluble in water, ethanol, glycerin, propylene glycol
• 100% plant-derived and palm-free.
• It blocks the free radicals and fights their action, thereby preventing cell apoptosis, damages to DNA and the metabolism.
• It restores the tissue defenses and protection thanks to immune stimulation and modulation. The structural protection is assured also thanks to plant agents that can block the Glycation reactions.
• It facilitates the oxygenation and nutrition of the tissue through vascular protection and venotonic action.
