    COLLALIFT®18 BC10014

    The Wrapping Beauty from African Mahogany

    Extracted from Khaya senegalensis, Collalift®18 transfers the structuring properties of the bark to the skin: by stimulating Collagen XVIII, which wraps the inner skin layers, Collalift®18 creates a sheathing effect to the entire skin structure for an invigorated and harmonious beauty.

    African Mahogany, Khaya senegalensis, is a tropical tree known for its strength and stability. Its majestic silhouette, reaching the sky, instantly evokes a sense of power and longevity. The enveloping bark protects a wood that is valued for its elegance and beauty. The teams from Beauty Creations wished to transfer these benefits to the skin by drawing inspiration from this treasure of nature. BASF’s scientists discovered that Collalift®18, extracted from the bark, has the property to stimulate the synthesis of collagen XVIII.

    Collagen XVIII is an important structural component of the skin basement membranes which interfaces between the various skin layers. As structural component of these membranes, it gives them tone and strength. This is also the only heparan sulfate collagen with biological activity that is present in all layers of the skin.

    We instinctively felt that by acting on this new biological target, we could obtain a beneficial effect for the skin.
    Through more than five years of exploratory research, the teams from Beauty Creations made a crucial innovation after discovering that the synthesis of Collagen XVIII declines with age.

    We also demonstrated that Collalift®18, an Ecocert-approved extract sourced in Burkina Faso, stimulates the production of this special collagen, both at the dermal-epidermal junction and in the basement membrane of adipose cells.
    We then knew that Collalift®18 would be a powerful anti-ageing ingredient due to its multi-dimensional action from the skin surface to its depth.
    Collalift®18 truly rejuvenates the skin, invigorating it from within. Skin regains its harmony on the surface (reduced wrinkles and pores) and its vitality is stimulated from deep within.

    Because we value your beauty, the teams at BASF Beauty Creations present Collalift®18, our latest innovation directly inspired by nature.
