MASTIC luxury collection includes all-natural vegan skincare products, carefully formulated for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin.
The star ingredient LAKESIS is made in France by CODIF Technologie Naturelle. Lakesis is COSMOS approved and ECOCERT organic certified. Precious Lakesis oil is made from crystallized resin tears collected from the mastic tree (Pistacia Lentiscus), native to the island Chios in Greece.
Lakesis by CODIF awakes the youth proteins of the skin and acts as a re-firming, toning, plumping, and anti-ageing agent. It is preservative-free and provides a plump effect on the dermis. The results after 28 days of treatment with Lakesis are amazing! Human fibroblasts 54 years of age regain characteristics of 37-year-old fibroblasts. After 28 days of use, the dermis is re-densified, skin firmness and thickness are improved. The skin appears younger and thicker. The contours of the face become redefined.
Lakesis, Klotho, and Fibroblast Growth Factors
KLOTHO forms a complex with fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptors that help restore collagen and elastic fibres density.
Fibroblast growth factors (FGF) comprise 22 members that signal through FGF receptors (FGFRs) and regulate a broad spectrum of biological functions such as cellular proliferation, survival, migration, and differentiation. Klotho protein binds to fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) and functions as a regulator of FGF signalling. Activated FGFRs mediate signalling by recruiting specific molecules that bind to phosphorylated tyrosine at the cytosolic part of the receptor triggering several signalling pathways leading to specific cellular responses, essential for the repair and regeneration of tissues.
