Glycation and skin aging – the new hot topic

Glycation plays a key role in skin aging and can cause unwanted effects such as dull skin, inflammation, sagging and the appearance of fine lines. It’s also a process that accelerates with time and weakens the skin’s defense against the impact of free radicals, creating a vicious circle.

New in-vivo studies show that DSM’s organically grown and ethically sourced alpine plant extract ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB significantly reduces glycation, and glycation-related signs of skin aging in all facial areas after 4 weeks. These findings have been visualized using color facial glycation mapping (visible AGEs reduction in all facial areas and especially on jaw line and forehead with 3% ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB).


Consumers are looking for trending and proven effective skin care ingredients to incorporate into their hair care routine. With the right ingredients, new hair & scalp care formulations can target and address consumers’ top concerns, while enabling a more resilient and sustainable future.
