These types of substances accelerate the turnover of skin cells, remove lesions, restore steadiness, elasticity and have "true" moisturizing characteristics. They not only accelerate the cellular exchange, or remove the dead cells as it often hails the pharmaceutical industry, but they improve the renewal of the skin strongly, increasing the collagen, elastin and the inside hydration, stimulating the production of proteins moisturizers and sugars.
They can be used for improving the penetration of substances through the derma. They are used mainly for anti-wrinkle effect: it opposes the aging of the skin, with the use the derma returns to have the thickness and turgidity of that of a juvenile. It stimulates the fibroblast directly and therefore the collagen, elastin and mucopolisaccaridi that maintain the young and elastic skin.
