ACTIZYME® advanced botanical ingredient

Gentle exfoliation to light up the skin

Fungi-derived protease that enhances cell renewal specifically in the skin surface without the irritation and barrier damage

Mechanism of action

It mimics the activity of endogenous cathepsin D, showing a very similar activity-pH profile, with an optimal proteolytic effect below pH 5.0, for a controlled and adequate desquamation without side effects

Cosmetic Benefits

Enhancement of cell renewal tested in vivo. Moreover, further studies confirmed a brightening effect, per the increase of skin luminance and individual typological angle values (30 days, 2%).
