Ingredients List Q-Z

Regestril (Patented Process)

      REGESTRIL™ a new anti-stretch mark active that prevents and reduces the appearance of stretch marks.

      Regestril which was composed of the dry green bean extract of Phaseolus lunatus that contained a small protein with a molecular weight of 8,000 Daltons which inhibited tryptase and chymase. Rutin, a well known flavonoid, possessed antioxidant properties of value in inflammatory stress: in the presence of rutin, activated mast cells no longer released histamine. Moreover, they identified a new property of rutin: inhibition of leukocytic elastase.

      This strengthened the protective properties with respect to the extracellular matrix. They showed that the combined action of anti-proteolytic activity by the green bean extract (Phaseolus lunatus) and rutin with the tissue repair properties of the two peptides Pal-GQPR and Pal-GHK led to visible and measurable reduction of stretch marks.

      Both biophysical measurements and dermatological appreciation confirmed the validity of the approach.

      Prevents and rubs away stretch marks

      Stretch marks are caused by distension of the skin – structural change to the skin involving inflammatory reactions and progressive destruction of the connective tissue.

      Regestril prevents and reduces stretch marks by slowing down this degradation, as it contains inflammatory inhibitors, and by activating the gene involved in de novo matrix synthesis, promoting repair of damaged matrix.
