Product Description

What is it?

PhytoSerene is an extremely pure beta-sitosterol, a natural micro-nutrient plant fat which is found in the cells and membranes of the tree. Chemically very similar to animal fat cholesterol, this plant sterol is totally different in its biological function, but because humans do not synthesize sterols in the body (and elimination rate is fast), it is
necessary to replace daily losses.

What does it do?

PhytoSerene helps cell protection by being a constitutive part of their membranes, and affecting their fluidity. It therefore protects the cell like the bark defends the tree. As a global results, PhytoSerene improves the defensive capacity of the skin barrier, and cell vitality.

Biological target

As skin ages or is damaged by external stresses, it looses the integrity of its barrier function, and cannot effectively protect the dermis against irritating factors.
Dehydration and redness appear then, leading to an acceleration of skin aging.

Mechanism of action

Scientific research has shown that betasitosterol appears to have a vitamin-like action on the functioning of the immune system. It also reduces the release of some pro-inflammatory cytokines, inhibits STAT1, and increases anti-inflammatory IL10 while inhibiting the translocation of NF-kB to the nucleus.

Ingredient benefits

PhytoSerene is a component similar to endogeneous structural cell lipid that demonstrated a capacity to reduce skin redness after exposure to a chemical aggressive agent. It also improved skin barrier effect by diminishing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss.
