is a physiological process occurring with the loss of melanin pigments
production and deposition within the hair shafts. Many studies report the
oxidation as the main biological factor underlying this defect of pigmentation. Even though
the overall appearance and biomechanical properties of hairs are reported to be
altered, there is a lack of information about molecular modifications occurring
in greying hair shafts.
The desquamation process attenuates with age and dead cells accumulate on the surface of the skin. The complexion becomes dull and microrelief irregular. SILAB proposes EXFOLACTIVE®, an exfoliating active ingredient obtained from an organic supply chain of nopal (also called prickly pear) flowers that reactivates the endogenous processes of desquamation.
