Seppic completes its anti-aging offer for mature skin with a new biomimetic anti-sagging ingredient: Sagacious [1].

Inspired by nature

To create this innovation, the French manufacturer took its inspiration from nature; more precisely from the behaviour of plants in the international space station. Indeed, to maintain their integrity in zero gravity, plants growing in the station synthesize specific molecules from the glycolipids family, SQDGs (sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerols).

Seppic has successfully extracted this family of molecules from Himanthalia elongata seaweed [2] using an eco-designed and patented process dubbed “Coeur d’algue” (French for “heart of algae”).

A global action on all skin layers

According to Seppic, Sagacious acts on all skin layers. “The skin becomes significantly firmer and the signs of facial sagging are less visible,” said the company in a statement.

Clinical tests have shown that Sagacious improves skin firmness, eight times more than the placebo and decreases the visibility of nasogenian folds (efficacy clinically proven after 28 days of application).

Its mode of action has been evaluated in vitro also, demonstrating a restoration of mechanical properties of fibroblasts close to the value of a fibroblast 28 years younger, thanks to a stimulation of key molecules at the level of the different layers of the skin:

- At the dermo-epidermal junction for a better cohesion between epidermis and dermis;

- In the dermis for a better biomechanical and tensile properties of fibroblasts;

- At the dermo-hypodermal junction for a better cohesion between dermis and hypodermis.

With Sagacious, Seppic thus propose to adopt a new approach for a global anti-aging strategy.

Sagacious is an innovative active ingredient, thanks to its biomimetic sourcing and its eco-designed process patented by Seppic which allows for the first time to extract glycolipids from Himanthalia elongata seaweed. All this for proven and visible effectiveness from one month on the signs of facial sagging,” concluded Audrey Bonnard, Active Product Manager at Seppic.

Sagacious complies with Chinese regulations. It is also Cosmos and Natrue approved with a 100% naturalness rate according to ISO 16128.
