The most famous orchid for our taste is a long epiphytic climbing plant with waxy ephemeral flowers, which grow spontaneously in tropical forests in Central America, where they are pollinated by a single type of bee. As its culture has been developped out of this area, its pods with the well known aroma are obtained through human pollinization, making them very expensive. Therefore a synthetic aroma was created in the 19th century. Aztecs first used vanilla to flavour their cocoa drink, today it has become a universal ingredient in food and perfume industries. Besides vanilline showed anti-oxydant and antimicrobial properties proven by studies. In Central America, the traditional medicine would recommend it to cure impotence and neurasthenia.
Because skin is tired sometimes, it is necessary to help it to get back its energy and vitality by strenghtening its elementary functions. To get a skin more radiant, more beautiful, more resistant.
Improves skin metabolism. Helps to stimulate cell regeneration and all cell functions in the epidermis.
Increases epidermis cell regeneration and reinforces the protective skin barrier.
Limits the creation of free radicals due to the physiological processes and free radicals induced by UVB.
• INCI name of cells: vanilla planifolia leaf cell extract
• Aspect: liquid
• Form: cells (20%) in glycerin or sunflower oil (80%)
• Concentration: starting at 0.5%
Full Energy Vanilla relaunches cell energy in epidermis by increasing cell energetic production, that is creating through respiration in cell mitochondriae. It contributes to boost chemical reactions (oxidations), that supply ATP, the source of elemental energy for cells, by maintaining the global energetic balance respect (energetical homeostasia), meaning that it keeps a balance between degradation processes (catabolism) and synthesis processes (anabolism). Those processes are inclined to unbalance with ageing. Besides, it minimizes the production of free radicals, that lead many cell desorders in short and long term. Indeed they can limit the cellular activity at the level of the mitochondrial respiration. In the same time, it helps to balance the regeneration of epidermis in terms of production of keratinocytes, a process that decreases with ageing.
Thanks to those actions, skin cells can get back a level of activity to fill their functions, including those limited by ageing.
