The proteoglycan revolution
They have become the new beauty hit, with no turning back. KUMIKO introduces them as the star component of its Matcha Intense Recovery, in one of the highest concentrations on the dermo-cosmetic market. A powerful elixir that, together with Matcha Tea, delays aging with its antioxidant, moisturizing, firming and dermal matrix restructuring properties.
Proteoglycans entered the scene, with powerful effects that revolutionize those who verify their anti-aging results. As never before, this is a true beauty elixir, which KUMIKO presents in exclusive, highly concentrated 5% vials, combined with glycosaminoglycans, which accelerate the production of hyaluronic acid, providing greater hydration to the skin. In addition, together with 5% vitamin C, plus vitamin E and Matcha Tea extract, they help prevent the effects of free radicals and promote the synthesis of new collagen.
Indeed, proteoglycans are the main extracellular structural components of the skin, together with collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. We often associate the problem of skin aging with a lack of collagen, but we are unaware of the fundamental role of proteoglycans in the dermal matrix. Over the years, the skin loses this structure and the body stops producing it naturally. This is why topical application of proteoglycans helps to combat premature aging and, of course, delays it.
KUMIKO works with the proteoglycans that are most similar to those found in our body, which are those of marine origin. This similarity achieves that the rearrangement of the fibers and the restructuring of the dermal matrix is really achieved, generating a noticeable and lasting effect, in a short time.
Cata Aguirre, CEO and founder of KUMIKO, explains why proteoglycans are a unique product with proven success: "In addition to their immediate visible effect of brightening the face, they improve the formation of collagen fibers, which becomes an anti-aging shock factor. They are also antioxidant, moisturizing, firming and improve dermal structure and epidermal elasticity, promote cell renewal and act against loss of firmness, wrinkles and fine lines".
The fact that they are united in an exclusive formula with Matcha Tea extract, rich in polyphenols, makes them act by preventing the formation of free radicals at the cellular level, that is, they interrupt the chain reaction produced and repair the existing damage. This property makes them an ideal component for restoring skin elasticity, preserving moisture and freshness of the complexion, strengthening the outer protective layer, producing a tightening effect and stimulating skin metabolism. If we add to proteoglycans, the action of glycosaminoglycans, plus vitamins C and E, it is certainly a product with surprising benefits for rejuvenated skin.
