Based on a Crocus chrysanthus bulb extract, DermCom
can reverse the aging process by stimulating the communication between skin cells.
With age, the communication process between skin
cells, which is mediated by growth factors, is reduced.
This strongly affects the extracellular matrix (ECM), the
structural network of the skin and leads to a reduction
of its firmness, elasticity and density.
DermCom was shown, in a series of tests, to stimulate
keratinocytes to secrete growth factors that could
enhance the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the
dermis. This effect on fibroblasts was comparable to
the one of the transforming growth factor (TGF-β), a
natural growth factor involved in ECM synthesis.
