Y-aminobutyric acid (GABA) was discovered in the extract of mammal’s brains, and identified as a inhibitory neurotransmitter of certain signals, decreasing the activity of the Nervous Central System (NCS).
GABA acts as a mediator in the neuronal system and in the development and differentiation of neuronal cells. In addition, further studies have revealed that GABA has multiple physiological effects, including hypotensive and diuretic. In vivo, the glutamate decarboxylase (GAD), an enzyme dependent on vitamin B6, is responsible for synthesizing GABA in almost all living species.
Naturally present in the human body GABA has relaxing function, aids against anxiety, stress, and fear. It is also very well known as a supplement, being used as a potent sleep inductor and natural tranquilizer.
GABA is also obtained from the natural fermentation (biofermentation) of corn.
AMINOBUTYRIC ACID (GABA) ON THE SKIN
When topically applied on the skin, GABA promotes relaxing activity, making it a great ally in softening expression lines and aging sings. It promotes the synthesis of collagen and elastin and ensures the maintenance of the cutaneous barrier’s homeostasis.
By stimulating the beta-defensin -2 enzymes, hyaluronan synthase, and filaggrin, GABA exerts the role of stimulating the skin’s microbiome balance.
NATURAL LIFTING TREATMENT
HOW DOES IT WORK?
On our skin’s surface there are GABA receptors, responsible for controlling the relaxation and tension of the expression muscles. When applied to the skin, these receptors are activated and momentarily interrupt the signals that make the muscles contract.
Although aminobutyric acid relaxes the muscles at once, granting the lifting effect, long term care is necessary to obtain all the benefits.
As an important ally against expression lines, aminobutyric acid has scientifically proven action according to the efficiency assessment conducted by Bloomage Biotech.
After 12 weeks using the product, the reduction in expression lines became evident as well as a 10% increase in the skin’s elasticity.
RESULT: A more uniform skin, less dilated pores, reduction of expression lines and wrinkles
MAIN ACTIVITIES OF GABA
- Regenerating action, revitalizing, and soothing;
- Stimulates the natural production of Hyaluronic acid from the fibroblasts;
- Prevents aging signs and expression lines;
- Hydrates the skin;
- Has clearing effect;
- Improves the visual aspect of the pores;
- Balances the skin’s microbiome.
GABA STIMULATES THE NATURAL SYNTHESIS OF HYALURONIC ACID OF THE SKIN
GABA promotes the proliferation of fibroblasts and the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which improves the humidity and elasticity of the skin, granting firmness.
GABA REPAIRS DAMAGED SKIN
On the epidermis, GABA repairs the cutis barrier, because it promotes the proliferation of epidermis cells and the production of involucrin and glutathione.
Consequently, GABA reduces the texture irregularities of the skin, caused by external factor like dryness, radiation and pollution, and after all it reduces the fine lines of the skin.
