Reconnect with your origins for healthier skin
Heptapeptide that strengthens vulnerable urban skin by promoting microbiota balance, diversity and an increase in beneficial bacteria, characteristics of a healthy skin in higher contact with nature. fensebiome™ peptide helps reinforce the skin’s microbial and physical barrier function and prevents dehydration.
Translucent solution containing 0.05% Acetyl Heptapeptide-4.
Water (Aqua), Acetyl Heptapeptide-4, Caprylyl Glycol.
fensebiome™ peptide can be incorporated into formulations to strengthen the double barrier function of the skin and prevent dehydration, as well as in prebiotic and probiotic-inspired skin care intended to reinforce skin exposed to urban conditions and sensitive skin types.
Discomfort, dehydration and scaling are characteristics of sensitive skin lacking an effective defense system. These traits are common among urban individuals. A reduced exposure to nature, linked to modernization, has been shown to increase the risk of inflammatory skin conditions. The underappreciated link between nature and skin health involves the skin microbiota, which provides vital functions to the skin. Research has shown that people in close contact with nature and uncontacted populations, similar to our ancestors, present a high bacterial diversity and an increase in anti-inflammatory bacteria, associated with a healthier and more protected skin.
fensebiome™ peptide helps boost the skin’s own defense system by favoring the presence of beneficial bacteria and by improving the skin immune response and the physical barrier integrity. On urban skin, it promoted a healthy microbiome similar to that of our ancestors living in closer contact with nature. A reinforcement in cell cohesion and a barrier protective effect were also observed.
