Venuceane™ New studies reveal efficiency against IR-Ageing

New studies performed in 2013 on Venuceane™, Sederma’s anti-ageing active that offers Ultraviolet (UV) protection, demonstrate it to be also highly efficient against InfraRed (IR)-Ageing.

Both UV and IR induce skin damage but in different ways. An efficient IR protection requires specialised strategies that involve an adaptive response to increased heat (specific to IR radiation) and the counteraction of IR-induced ROS production. Venuceane™ has successfully been demonstrated to do just this:
-  Improves hydration via the protection of the mitochondrial integrity known to be particularly damaged by IR radiation (ATP synthesis and mitochondrial water content increased by 123%)
-  Lessens the inflammatory conditions (PGE2: -54%, IL-6: -53%, IL-8: -61%, vs IR-irradiated control)
-  Prevents the denaturation of matrix macromolecules in order to limit wrinkle formation (Collagen I: +70%, Fibrillin-I: +28% vs IR-irradiated control)

Venuceane™ is an anti-ageing active that meets expectations for a new generation of photo-protection based on UV and IR protection. It seems to be, by far, the most complete active ingredient to effectively fight against photo-ageing.

Derived by biotechnology, Venuceane™, is a ferment that is rich in multifunctional and stable enzymes. In addition, it also complies with Chinese regulations for cosmetics ingredients.

By giving a Red Card for InfraRed, Venuceane™ fights IR-Ageing.
