DSM Confirms Efficacy of Regu-Scence Made From White Asparagus

August 10, 2015

Following the discovery of the pine cone extract, we've got more news from Cosmetics Business on another anti-aging ingredient.

Specialty chemicals supplier DSM has confirmed that its Regu-Scence ingredient has been found to be extra effective, following new research into the molecule.

Regu-Science, an extract taken from pure white asparagus from the Navarra region, was shown to be highly effective as an anti-ageing ingredient, delaying the cellular ageing process by stimulating the skin’s own autophagy abilities.

A test carried out on pigmented epidermis equivalents indicated the efficacy of Regu-Scence at 3% to enhance the appearance of a more even skin tone. In vitro, this ingredient has shown a significant down-regulation of tyrosinase (responsible for hyperpigmentation) marker by up to 65% and of the recently discovered Melan-A (a type of melanocyte) marker by up to 30% in a 9-day test.

What products do you think Regu-Scence would be most effectively used in? Let us know below!

Is it the white asparagus? or the soil in the Navarra region in which it grows that makes it special? Does the Regu-Scence disappear once the asparagus is allowed to photosynthesis?
