The Benefits of Senolytics in Beauty Products

In the dynamic realm of skin care and cosmetics, continual advancements redefine the beauty landscape. Among these innovations, the integration of senolytics into beauty products has emerged as a game-changer.

Senolytics Reshaping the Beauty Industry

In the dynamic realm of skin care and cosmetics, continual advancements redefine the beauty landscape. At HSH Chemie, we're passionate about taking part in innovative trends within the beauty and skin care industry. Among these innovations, the integration of senolytics into beauty products has emerged as a game-changer. In our portfolio for Personal Care we provide a wide variety of active ingredients that greatly enhance skin health and help giving the skin a youthful look.


Senolytics: A Weapon Against "Zombie Cells" in the Skin

Fibroblasts in the dermal layer of the skin play a crucial role in producing collagen and healing wounds. However, as time passes, these fibroblasts encounter difficulties due to elements such as UV light and pollution, leading to damage and aging. They have three options: continue to divide and propagate the damage, undergo a process known as programmed cell death (apoptosis), or opt for a third route: cellular senescence, frequently referred to as 'zombie cells.'

Senescent cells neither divide nor die but block apoptosis and promote inflammation by releasing cytokines, influencing nearby cells to become senescent as well. In young tissue, the immune system clears senescent cells, but in aged or stressed skin, they accumulate, leading to chronic inflammation, collagen loss, and reduced skin elasticity. This accumulation is a hallmark of aging, driving interest in senescent cell elimination as an anti-aging therapy.

A new approach called senolytics targets and removes senescent cells in the skin's tissues, revolutionizing the way we treat aging. Senescent cells, often referred to as "zombie cells," accumulate over time, contributing to inflammatory reactions and skin aging. They usher in the loss of elasticity, the emergence of fine lines, and an overall weary appearance. Senolytics are specialized substances designed to zero in on these aging cells, paving the way for revitalized, youthful skin.

Alpine Rose: A Senolytic Sensation

The source of this remarkable ingredient is equally captivating. The alpine rose (Rhododendron ferrugineum) is a robust alpine plant thriving amidst the stunning Swiss Alps. Its extraordinary ability to flourish at high altitudes has led to the development of ingenious strategies to fend off dehydration, free radicals, and pathogenic threats. This inherent resilience serves as the foundation of an amazing ingredient, promising to bestow the same tenacity and adaptability to your skin.

Harvesting Excellence: Alpine Rose Sourced Sustainably

In partnership with local organic farmers in the Swiss Alps, our partner makes sure that the alpine rose petals are being hand-picked. This commitment to quality ensures that the essence of this natural wonder is harnessed for skincare excellence.

This sustainable practice ensures leaf regeneration each year. Through this officially controlled wildcrafting method, leaves can be extracted from plants experiencing natural environmental stressors like significant temperature variations and intense UV exposure.

Proven Efficacy: Transforming Skin Health

The effectiveness of this ingredient is solidified through rigorous in vitro and ex vivo testing. In vitro studies have unveiled a significant reduction in senescent fibroblasts without impacting healthy counterparts. The advantages extend to ex vivo results, including:

  1. Reducing Redness
    The active ingredients in alpine rose has demonstrated the ability to reduce skin redness, fostering a more uniform complexion.
  2. Enhancing Skin Elasticity
    Users experience improved skin elasticity, countering the signs of sagging skin.
  3. Shielding Against Oxidative Stress
    This ingredient safeguards skin proteins from oxidative stress, a principal contributor to premature aging.
  4. Scalp Benefits
    Senolytics effects don't limit its prowess to the face; it has shown promise in reducing scalp redness, alleviating itching, and enhancing overall scalp condition.

Unveiling Beauty's Secret: Alpine Rose

The herbal formulas that have undergone these trials may not be pharmaceutical products. However, their production still adheres to rigorous safety and quality standards. ISO 22000 and GMP-certified facilities are used in their manufacturing processes.

Likewise, specific HACCP and HARPC procedures are followed to help ensure that quality is maintained in each batch. Physical and chemical parameter checks and HPTLC chromatographic fingerprinting are also undertaken to confirm ingredient stability and microbial profiles, among other product characteristics.


Elevating Skincare Routine

For those seeking skincare solutions that transcend surface-level treatments, ingredients with senolytics effects offer a transformative experience. This unique capability to clear senescent cells, coupled with robust antioxidant effects, renders it an invaluable addition to beauty products.

A great way to enrich your cosmetics

The quest for ageless beauty is an ever-evolving journey, and ingredients with a senolytic effect have emerged as a pivotal player. The senolytic properties, derived from the resilient Alpine rose, promise to redefine your skincare experience.
