Our health depends on the way we live
« The state of our skin is a reflection of our health. The biological factors responsible for the aging process are complex and determined by various parameters: personal issues, environmental pollution (sun, cold, wind, air pollutants), passing years, tobacco, alcohol and often unbalanced nutrition. The aging of skin being inevitable, DermoPlant provides natural solutions to premature aging or to prevention of dermal and epidermal diseases, as well as to treating skin marks ».

Dermoplant helps you age in beauty.
Starting with the age of 27 the skin fibers begin to suffer damage, losing firmness and elasticity and determining the appearance of wrinkles.
The efficiency of an anti-aging cosmetic product is measured by its content in active principles which allow to:
- Enhance the collagen and elastin
- Maintain the degree and high quality of the hyaluronic acid to fight premature or genetic skin aging.
To understand the needs of the skin one has to know its structure made up of 3 layers: the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis.
The structure of skin
Explanation by Dr Camélia HERISANU
I The Epidermis
Is composed up to 85% of keratinocytes, cells which are constantly renewed every 4 to 6 weeks through a shedding process.
The remaining 15% is comprised of:
- melanocytes: which synthesize the melanin (natural pigment responsible for the color of our skin)
- Langerhans cells: the guards of the skin which detect and capture foreign bodies
- Merkel cells: the sensors of the skin.
II The Dermis
The most important layer of the skin
The main components of the dermis are:
- fibroblast cells which synthesize two types of protein fibers: the collagen & the elastin;
- the extracellular matrix;
- the sebaceous glands responsible for the secretion of sebum;
- the sudoriferous glands responsible for the secretion of sweat.
The collagen makes skin firm and resistant and helps damaged tissue heal.
The elastin gives skin elasticity and flexibility.
The substance surrounding the collagen and the elastin is the “extracellular matrix”, made up of complex sugars such as the hyaluronic acid.
The hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan considered “water sponge”, being able to capture and contain up to 1,000 times its weight in water, playing a key role in skin healing and acting as antioxidant against UV rays. Its main action consists in maintaining the moisturizing which gives the smooth and firm aspect to the skin.
III The Hypodermis
The prevailing cells in the hypodermis are the adipocytes considered the protective layer against mechanical or thermal shocks.
