After the successful development of our first range of dermocosmetic products (sold under the brand Lhov), our team developed a dermocosmetic ingredient, called the gold nanoflowers. Combined with light therapy, these cosmetic ingredient will help in the recovery of damaged and sensitive skin.
In health projects, gold nanoparticles are greenly produced using plant extract from the Reunion Island. For the development of dermocosmetic formulations, a novel ingredient was created, called nanoflowers, which consists in 50nm sized gold nanoparticles. They are not absorbed through the skin but they form a protective barrier. These cosmetics have already gone through intensive toxicity assays and show a protective effect on the skin through anti-oxidant and anti-apoptotic activities. All these activities are essential for a skin to recover and to be protected after damage caused by radiotherapy.
