Ecoffea by Chemyunion: A coffee extract to rejuvenate mature skin

Offering antioxidant properties, Ecoffea was developed by Chemyunion to improve skin micro-surface, protecting mitochondrial function and promoting corneocyte regeneration, being an effective active ingredient for the anti-aging products formulation.

Mitochondrial function is gradually reduced in view of chronological aging or photoaging, and this concept has been supporting the basic theory of aging for years. As a result of reduced cell activity, corneocytes (cells composing the horny layer) change in size, with a 20 to 40% increase in diameter, causing an increasingly aged appearance, which is clearly noticeable over the years,” explains Chemyunion.

Ecoffea is an organic green coffee cake glycerinated extract (Coffea arabica) with mitochondrial protection properties, reducing residue release and providing the green coffee benefits to the skin, which have already been scientifically confirmed, with excellent anti-aging properties.

According to Chemyunion, Ecoffea increased 3 times the activity of the enzyme aconitase, indicating that mitochondrial function, which is gradually lost with age, can be restored by the active ingredient, stimulating cell renewal and thus minimizing the skin aging process. “With greater efficacy in mature skin, Ecoffea restored the phenotype of corneocytes in approximately 13 years, and is a vegetable active ingredient that can be used in creams, gels or serums,” claims the company.
