What is it: It is a sugar protein hybrid made from xylose, a sugar extract found in Beech tree that defends skin against moisture loss, and strengthens skin matrix. Xylose is known to stimulate the production of glycoaminoglycans, the molecules responsible for defending skin against water loss. Pro Xylane, a patented ingredient, was first discovered and developed by Lancôme, owned by L’Oreal.
How it works: As we age our skin’s cellular matrix looses water thus its elasticity which means that cell on its own loses its capacity to produce collagen which is the main stuff behind the youthful skin. That is when skin needs an extra dose of protein to boost its structure. Pro Xylane does that. According to L’Oreal Labs, Pro Xylane is one of the best and well-known extracts that strengthen the skin’s cellular structure. By penetrating the extra-cellular matrix that supports skin structure, Pro-Xylane can restore skin’s overall health and suppleness. It stimulates the production of skin’s natural matrix made up of protein and sugar that support the cell structure. This also helps pull in more moisture to the skin cells thus improving the firmness and elasticity of the skin.
How best to use it: This active is FDA approved and has no known side effects. Pro Xylane gets easily absorbed by the skin improving its texture within seven days of application. Since our skin rejuvenation takes place the best at night, so it is a good idea to use a Pro Xylane based cream at night which gives it ample time to work on the skin.
