Small molecule that has a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-glycation action able to counteract the natural skin aging process by inhibiting the reactions caused by free radicals and preventing the formation of cross-links in collagen.
The glycation process is one of the mechanisms by which our skin, and all our organs, grow older. It is the adherence of glucose molecules to proteins in our body, including collagen and elastin. This bond with sugar makes the structural proteins less functional, more rigid, and activates a cascade of oxidative and inflammatory reactions that, day after day, accelerates the aging process of all our tissues, including the skin.
The daily cosmetic use of Carnosine counteracts these reactions by acting as a powerful anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, keeping the skin visibly younger and more compact.
This little protein is found naturally in meat, but as an ingredient in supplements and cosmetics is synthesized in the laboratory, identical to the natural one.
