A proprietary lupin seed extract, trade named Collageneer, that serves as a multi-benefit firming active by stimulating synthesis of a high-quality collagen in the skin. It has remarkable anti-inflammatory abilities, anti-cancer qualities, and it effectively increases skin elasticity to firm and remodel the facial contour. This extract is specially synthesized to yield an ester known as lupeol, a pharmacologically active pentacyclic triterpenoid. Lupeol is extracted from the coatings of sweet white lupin seeds in a patented process and holds the trade name Collageneer.
Lupeol is an active molecule that increases the synthesis of Collagen 1 and HSP 47 (Heat Shock Protein), a “chaperone” protein that facilitates collagen production. A clinical study showed the firmness of the skin improved by 92% and the sagging of the facial contour reduced by 72% after 42 days.1 It also shows promise for treatment of skin damage, including thermal, chemical and radiation burns.2 Another study showed a 30% increase in the concentration of skin cells compared to the untreated control.2 Lupeol has shown promise as a chemopreventative, meaning it may help slow the development of cancerous skin cells.3 Last but not least, lupeol is a potent anti-inflammatory and may help reduce visible signs of skin conditions such as eczema and acne.45
