Ageing better with Typology.

Feeling comfortable with one's age means feeling good in one's skin, regardless of how old one is. At Typology, we don't prevent skin from ageing. We offer effective products that are true to themselves, without over-promising. Skincare that doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is.

Comfortable in one's age.

Our products help to protect the skin, this physical barrier that shields against the external environment. With age, the skin barrier, the superficial layer of the epidermis covered by a protective film known as the hydrolipidic film, degrades due to, among other things, a slowdown in cell renewal. The epidermis thins and water evaporates increasingly. The deterioration of the skin barrier gradually leads to a loss of firmness, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and pigmentation spots.

To say that we can prevent skin ageing would be a falsehood. However, we can reduce some of its signs. How? By providing the skin with hydrating actives, such as hyaluronic acid. Already present in our bodies, with half of it residing in the dermis, it ensures skin hydration so that it remains supple and smooth. Its content decreases over the years, leading to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the surface of the epidermis. The application of hyaluronic acid topically forms a film on the skin surface that limits dehydration. Moreover, certain actives have the ability to stimulate the natural production of hyaluronic acid, like polyglutamic acid.

Other factors impair the barrier function, such as UV rays, pollution or even tobacco. By generating an overproduction of free radicals, compounds that degrade collagen and elastin fibres, the lipids of cell membranes and sometimes even DNA, the skin ages more quickly. This phenomenon is called oxidative stress. To counter these effects, we offer treatments rich in antioxidant active ingredients, such as the vitamin C which neutralises free radicals.

Skin ageing is also characterised by a decrease in melanin-producing cells, a pigment that protects against UV rays. Every ten years, their concentration decreases by 8 to 10%. With age, the skin becomes more vulnerable. Additionally, the morphology and distribution of these cells change, causing irregular pigmentation on the surface of the epidermis: the well-known pigmentation spots. Several active ingredients are effective in reducing them, such as tranexamic acid or alpha-arbutin.

One of the key manifestations of skin ageing involves the alteration of the structure of fibroblasts, which then synthesise less collagen. However, this fibrous protein is essential for skin firmness. The retinol, the collagen and certain peptides are active ingredients capable of stimulating collagen production at the dermis level in order to prevent skin sagging.

As you will have understood, we do not prevent skin ageing, we can only reduce some of its signs. Within our LAB range, two new treatments have been introduced to prevent and/or support skin ageing.

The firming and smoothing serum, a treatment that targets early onset and/or recently established wrinkles.

Although it may not be immediately apparent, cellular degeneration begins around the age of twenty; this marks the onset of skin ageing. Biological factors, such as the gradual decrease in the body's production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, or elastin, account for this. However, environmental factors such as excessive alcohol consumption and smoking, unprotected exposure to the sun, pollution and even stress further accelerate this process.

In light of this, it is advisable to take care of one's skin even before the first wrinkles appear. Thus, around the age of twenty-five, it is pertinent to apply a firming serum morning and evening, such as this new Typology product. It contains two active ingredients with recognised and proven benefits.

  • The Vitamin C (10%): this molecule is known for brightening the complexion, reducing pigmentation spots, and slowing down the photo-ageing of the skin. Naturally present in the skin, Vitamin C helps to neutralise the free radicals generated by exposure to the sun, pollution, smoking... the skin is thus better protected from these external aggressions responsible for photo-ageing.

  • Vegetable Collagen (1%): This is a plant-derived fragment of type I human collagen that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin and increases the production of fibroblasts for firmer and smoother skin. Moreover, it works in synergy with vitamin C for optimised effectiveness.

The wrinkle and blemish serum, a concentrated formula to be applied before bedtime.

Acne-prone skin and skin ageing are not contradictory. Hormonal fluctuations and excess sebum can cause blemishes at any age. To combat wrinkles and blemishes simultaneously, this serum combines the following three active ingredients.

  • The retinol (0.3%): a derivative of vitamin A, this compound is considered one of the most effective in counteracting the degradation of the skin's support fibres. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for smoother and more elastic skin.

  • The bakuchiol (1%): a recent active ingredient in the beauty world, it is extracted from the seeds and leaves of the Psoralea corylifolia (Babchi). Better tolerated than retinol, it is often recommended for sensitive skin. Thanks to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, bakuchiol helps to reduce blemishes. This molecule targets the bacteria that resides in sebum (Propionibacterium Acnes) and limits the production of pro-inflammatory molecules. Moreover, it works in synergy with retinol to limit the degradation of collagen and elastin fibres, thus facilitating the repair of blemished skin while preventing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

  • Plant-based polypeptides : Synthesised by endemic Australian plants, these polypeptides work in synergy with retinol to promote collagen synthesis. They help to reduce the depth of wrinkles and to densify the skin. These peptides also contribute to maintaining a thick epidermis, which plays its role as a shield against the external environment.

It should be noted that this serum is preferably applied in the evening due to the photosensitising nature of retinol. It is also generally recommended for skin that is already accustomed to retinol, as its concentration is quite high.
