The triterpenes of Centella Asiatica, and more particularly, asiatic acid, stimulate collagen and elastin biosynthesis, help to improve wound repair with a better reepithelialisation and normalisation of perivascular connective tissue allowing an improvement of the venous wall tone and elasticity. It stops the formation of fibres that trap fat cells in cellulite and improves the flexibility of the connective tissue.
Fucus is able to inhibit the inflammatory process. The thallus of fucus contains organic iodine, which mobilizes retained fluids from some parts of the body, stimulates blood circulation and removes toxins. Oedema is one of the cause of cellulite; thus, active principles which reabsorb oedemas are of great use to treat this condition. Ivy saponins have demonstrated anti-elastase and anti-hyaluronidase activities, useful for the protection and for the treatment of vein insufficiency. Ivy is also known for its high silicium content thus supporting collagen synthesis.
