Function: Promotes body volume by a cosmetic lipofilling-like effect.
Definition: Sarsasapogenin extracted from the roots of Asian botanical Anemarrhena asphodeloïdes, in an oil-soluble excipient. PRESERVATIVE FREE
Properties: VolufilineTM stimulates adipocyte differentiation and proliferation, and promotes lipid storage leading to an increase of adipocyte volume in the fatty tissue.
Characteristics: The mechanism of action of sarsasapogenin is elucidated by DNA-array technique. Sarsasapogenin activates the differentiation pathway (PPARY.COPS3, COPS5), stimulates lipid incorporation through the glucose/fructose pathway (adipophilin, SLC2A5, GLUT5) and promotes fatty tissue setting among the extra cellular matrix (LOX, ECM2).
Point of interest: Sarsasapogenin is a phytosterol with no hormonal activity.
