  • Tannic Acid: a breakthrough new antioxidant. Interest and experience in skin treatments. Tannic Acid: a breakthrough new antioxidant. Interest and experience in skin treatments.

    Publié le par Julien -

    Tannic Acid (TA) is an outstanding ingredient, a polyphenol issued from nature and stabilized for the first time by ALPHASCIENCE.

    TA has protective capacity superior to reference antioxidants such as BHA, BHT, alpha tocopherol and trolox[1]. It also inhibits hydroxyl radical formation from Fenton Reaction by complexing Fe3+[2].

    TA has vascular properties: it binds to vascular elastin, improves resistance to degradation and reduces in vivo calcification[3]. It protects the endothelium of small blood vessels and the capillaries[4]. TA is efficient to treat bruises: the chelation properties help avoiding iron deposit in the skin following vascular injuries and its antioxidant activity protects cell membranes and cellular integrity.

    TA inhibits collagenase-induced degradation of collagen via extensive hydrogen bonding augmented by hydrophobic interactions and prevents the free access of collagenase to active sites on the collagen chains[5].

    TA is effective against skin tumors: protection against chemically induced skin tumorigenesis in mice with a reduction of 66 % of induced tumours[6], inhibition by 85% of the ODC marker of skin tumor promotion[7].

    TA inhibits advanced glycation end products formation[8] and has antifungal and antibacterial activities[9], which could explain the link between its presence in the bark of Sequoia and exceptional lifespan of Sequoia.

    To sum up, TA presents unique topical and cosmetics aplications: bruises and redness, anti-aging, anti-pollution, free radical protection and scavenging, vasoprotection and regulation of pigmentation.

  • Alphascience developed the most advanced technology to stabilize antioxidants in high concentration Alphascience maîtrise la technologie la plus avancée de stabilisation des antioxydants en haute concentration.

    Publié le par Julien -

    Antioxidants such as Vitamin C in its natural form (L-Ascorbic Acid) are unique to protect and correct against skin aging. They are also highly instable.

    How do fruits manage to keep Vitamin C and their antioxidants stable and active?

    By observing nature and thanks to our knowledge of chemical interactions between antioxidants and Vitamin C, we developed unique and stable complexes.

    The same as in fruits, our serums are unique molecular combinations of Vitamin C with potent antioxidants (Tannic Acid, Ginkgo Biloba, Ferulic Acid...) to achieve a dynamic stabilization of the complex.

    Results: our serums protects effectively against pollution and oxidative stress with unique results on the skin.

    Les antioxydants comme la Vitamine C sous sa forme naturelle (acide L-ascorbique) sont les meilleurs protecteurs et correcteurs du vieillissement, mais ils sont aussi très instables.

    Comment les fruits parviennent à garder stable et actifs la vitamine C et les antioxydants? 

    C'est de cette observation de la nature et grâce notre maîtrise des interactions chimiques entre les antioxydants et la Vitamine C, que nous avons développé des complexes totalement stables.

    Comme dans les fruits, nos sérums sont des combinaisons moléculaires de la Vitamine C avec de puissant antioxydants (Acide Tannique, Ginkgo Biloba, Acide Férulique...) afin d'assurer une stabilisation dynamique de l'ensemble.

    Résultat: nos sérums ont une action très puissante contre la pollution et les facteurs de stress oxydatifs avec des résultats exceptionnels sur la peau!
