With advancing age, skin loses its resistance and elasticity; it cannot escape its number one enemy--wrinkles. According to Silab, new data reveals these changes are due to the deterioration of a critical zone of the upper dermis that is closely linked to the dermo-epidermal junction: the papillary dermis.

Papilactyl D (INCI: Cyperus esculentus (tiger nut) tuber extract) is a new ingredient, launched recently at in-cosmetics, that combats this preferential target of intrinsic skin aging. Silab produced the ingredient from the African plant tiger nut and the ingredient reinforces the structure of the papillary dermis that is involved in the majority of the cutaneous tissue’s elastic properties: resilience, deformability and elasticity.

The company explained that the dermis harbors a diversity of matrix molecules organized in a highly dynamic structure that determines the biomechanical properties of the tissue. This macromolecular combination is divided into two dermal compartments, the papillary dermis and the reticular dermis, separated by a vascular plexus.
