Description :
Oligolin™: multi-functional rejuvenation of the skin by flax seeds oligosaccharides for a firmer and better hydrated skin. With ageing, structural changes affect globally the different skin compartments. The epidermis is altered and becomes thinner, the dermo-epidermal junction flattens and the dermal structure becomes scarce. Skin loses its capacity of tissue regeneration and restructuration, loses its firmness and becomes dry. Looking for a global and multifunctional rejuvenating cure, we have designed Oligolin™ from the ancestral and sustainable flax crop, used for centuries for its oil and the manufacture of linen, and with traditional benefits for wound healing. Oligolin™, a hydrolyzed flax seed extract concentrated in oligosaccharides, has been proven to modulate the key parameters promoting skin tissue regeneration and restructuring. These oligosaccharides enable to regenerate the epidermis (thickness, involucrin, filaggrin) and the DEJ (collagen IV). In the dermis they activate the fibroblasts (proliferation and migration) for ECM restructuring (Collagens I and III, lumican, GAGs, hyaluronidase and heparanase inhibition). In vivo, on human volunteers, this overall skin regeneration restructuring effect results in an improvement of skin firmness and hydration for a multifunctional anti-ageing benefit.
