The epidermis and the dermis, which are the two main layers of the skin, are tightly bound together. This boundary surface shows a papillary structure in young skin that maximizes the surface area of connection between the two skin layers. This is important for an effective transfer of nutrients from the dermis to the epidermis, which lays further outside.
In aged skin, this junction area becomes flatter as a result of a modification in the quality and quantity of elastin and collagen.
It was shown in clinical testing that Snow Algae Powder can increase this connecting area by 30.5%. Therefore, the junction area between the dermis and the epidermis recovers its original papillary architecture. Furthermore, the skin regains its vitality and is therefore rejuvenated.
