In this dual approach to antiaging, intrinsic factors are first addressed by slowing cell proliferation in skin via a technology based on dormins-in this
case, extracts from dormant Narcissus tazetta bulb. Then, to protect against extrinsic aging, colorless carotenoids are employed to absorb UV radiation and prevent oxidative stress damage.
When addressing skin aging we need to take into consideration both intrinsic and extrinsic aging factors.
Intrinsic aging is the natural and programmed aging while extrinsic aging is a result of accumulated damage.
We chose to address the programmed aging factor by affecting the rate of cell proliferation as being done in the phenomena named DORMANCY where growth functions and cell proliferation rate are affected, slowed down to slow down aging, keeping cells in their younger stage and preserving the cells youth capital. Keeping younger by slowing down is based on the Hayflick's limit theory which was claimed and later also proven that cells have limited capacity to replicate and as they advance through the number of replications, they age, it is believed that slowing down cell proliferation preserves the cell youth capital, thereby delay the aging process.
For handling Extrinsic aging which is according to Harman's free radical theory of aging, where organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage with the passage of time. As the name suggests, antioxidants like the colorless carotenoids prevent free radicals and oxidation damage as well as UV generated oxidative damage leading to premature aging.
The article discusses in more details the two approaches and ways to combine them into active ingredients and products to achieve a global effect to slowdown aging.
