The holistic skin rejuvenator


Epseama is the first active ingredient in the market that targets a long non-coding RNA to fight the three main causes of aging: photoaging, chronoaging, and inflammaging. It boosts the expression of nc886, a long non-coding RNA which expression decreases dramatically with age in women after 40-years-old.

By boosting nc886, Epseama inhibits the production of MMP-9, a collagenase that degrades collagen IV, and increases the production of collagen IV, VII and XVII that are key components of the dermis-epidermis junction. As a consequence, Epseama helps the skin recover its resistance and elasticity.

Epseama is made from an extract of Laminaria japonica, a brown seaweed known as the "superfood of the sea" thanks to its composition rich in vitamins and minerals. This algae is farmed on the shore of South Korean island through sustainable and responsible aquaculture practices.

Epseama has won the silver prize of the BSB Innovation Awards in the category "Active Ingredients" at in-cosmetics 2019.

Epseama manages to reduce difficult-to-remove nasolabial wrinkles by 19% in volume and 10% in roughness in only one month (clinical trial on 19 women over 50 years-old).

It also reduces pigmented spots and improves skin hydration.
