Retinal Alternative, Juventide®Technology

  • is more effective than retinol in reducing the visible signs of aging without irritating or drying the skin.
  • is an alternative to retinol that provides clinically proven benefits against skin aging.

This unique technology captures and preserves the exceptional regenerative power of the starfish Asterias vulgaris, the secret of which we have unlocked through years of research. Juventide® is the heart of all L’ÉTOILE COSMÉTIQUES products, helping to keep skin looking young and healthy.

As such, Juventide® helps reduce the damage caused to the skin by natural aging and environmental factors such as UV radiation and air pollution.

Clinical studies have scientifically demonstrated that Juventide® is more effective than retinol in reducing the visible signs of aging without irritating or drying the skin. Unlike retinol, Juventide® has no adverse effects and can be used day or night without fear for the most sensitive skin.

From a natural source, Juventide® is hypoallergenic and non-toxic. This bioactive formulation has an excellent safety profile at the topical level and is perfectly suited for long term use.

Mimetic action of retinol

Retinoids, such as retinol, are the gold standard of topical anti-aging products. The application of retinol is effective in reducing the signs of intrinsic aging and repairing sun-damaged skin. Cell regeneration, exfoliation and dermal collagen synthesis are all stimulated by the application of retinol.

However, the positive clinical results obtained with retinol are offset by several side effects (Kockaert & Neumann 2003), including erythema, peeling, dryness and pruritus. Factors determining the efficacy and safety of retinol are its concentration, stability, encapsulation method and formulation. Despite the constant efforts of formulators to limit the adverse effects of retinol, many users discontinue treatment before achieving the desired results.
