Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is a molecule that is present in all living organisms. It acts as a precursor to essential coenzymes and is also one of the four monomers used in the synthesis of cellular RNA. It is known as Nature’s activator as it stimulates cell activation.
A shortage of adenosine affects cellular repair and reproduction, which directly affects the body, accelerating the ageing process. It energises and hydrates the cells, helping prevent and reverse the ageing process.
A fibroblast stimulator, it increases their size and the synthesis of proteins. In this way, it improves the skin’s response ability, contributing to a noticeable improvement as skin becomes fuller thanks to the increase in fibroblasts.
It improves skin condition in general and combats wrinkles, sagging, dryness and age spots. It also plays a crucial role in the transport of macromolecules across cellular membranes, facilitating penetration of larger molecular agents.
it is particularly effective on wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), frown (forehead) and expression lines.
As skin ages, collagen fibres reduce, which produces a rippling of the dermis (wrinkles) and thinning of the vascular tissue. Adenosine increases the size and number of collagen fibres, improving their quality. As such, it is recommended not only for mature skin but also for young skin and especially sun-damaged skin, preventing sun-related ageing. The improvement to tissue directly affects its ability to retain its natural moisture mantle, helping keep skin hydrated. Adenosine is suitable and beneficial for all skin types (dry, greasy, combination, dermatitis…). In the case of greasy skin, the most notable improvement is on pores and sebum production.
