ANTARCTICINE®marine ingredient shields and regenerates the skin exposed to extreme cold as well as assists in reducing wrinkles for a firm and young complexion. In vivo it showed a 13.5% increase in moisturization after applying a cream at 1% to the skin exposed to cold weather conditions for one hour a day during 15 days. After 30 days, wrinkle depth and volume decreased by 10.6% and 9.3% respectively.
MATMARINE™ blue ingredient helps decrease sebum levels to reduce skin shininess, the appearance of pores and active follicles. An in vivo study applying a BB cream containing 2% ingredient resulted in an immediate 28.3% reduction in gloss right after the application and a prolonged effect lasting through the day.
