Proteum 89+ is the third-generation proteoglycan patented by MartiDerm. It is smaller in size and has greater penetration power than conventional proteoglycans, and encourages the production of endogenous proteoglycans, such as Decorin (the most abundant proteoglycan in the skin, which is involved in both collagen formation and the organisation and function of connective tissue in the skin) and Versican (a proteoglycan that is present in the basal layer of the epidermis and is associated with the elastic fibres of the dermis, which favours water retention and the organisation of the extracellular matrix).
Proteum 89+ also protects against the harmful effects of UV radiation caused by a reduction in ATP and 8-isoprostane expression following exposure to UV radiation, thus playing a very important role as a biological sunscreen.
Thanks to its anti-wrinkle effect, it quickly restores skin firmness and elasticity that have been lost over time. Proteum 89+ also plays a very important role as a biological sunscreen, increases cell energy and promotes hyaluronic acid production.
Proteum89+ is currently contained in the products of the Black Diamond range, in Skin Complex+ ampoules and in Proteum Serum.
