Endocare is a dermatological face care brand that aims to regenerate aged and damaged skin. And it is the result of intense research in the field of skin repair.
Dr. Rafael Abad, a radiotherapist at the Ramon y Cajal Hospital in Madrid, studied different substances to regenerate the skin after radiation therapy. During this research the secretion of Cryptomphalus aspersa - SCA was discovered.
Cryptomphalus aspersa is a snail that in response to environmental aggressions produces a regenerating secretion that has allowed its survival over thousands of years.
Due to this high regenerative power the brand incorporated the patented SCA complex in all formulas. SCA is a unique bioconcentration fluid, rich in growth factors, that activate fibroblasts. It is obtained from the secretion of Cryptomphalus aspersa, a powerful natural source of dermic regeneration and antioxidant activity. Visibly reduces wrinkles and restores skin elasticity.
The activation of fibroblasts, the most important cells of the dermis responsible for the production of collagen and elastin, is caused by different mechanisms:
- SCA rejuvenates senescent fibroblasts.
- SCA induces the proliferation of fibroblasts, young and senescent.
- SCA renews and mounts the Extra-Mobile Matrix (ECM) to maintain the integrity of DERMIS.
- SCA shows a powerful antioxidant capacity.
The regenerative power of each Endocare product is defined based on the SCA index ranging from 2 to 50, quantifying the activation capacity of skin regeneration.
