The Active Defense System

Active Defense System (ADS)

The Active Defense System (ADS™) is a plant active, mint leaf extract, rich in polyphenols. Its active molecule, eriocitrine, moderates signs of skin sensitivity by acting on different mediators implicated in the phenomenon of irritation of the skin (redness, tingling feeling, heating).

Action mode of the ADS

ADS, a powerful soothing active, helps strengthen the natural resistance of the skin. Its action was proven during in vitro / in vivo testing / and the results show that :

• ADS stops the release of certain key mediators of irritation*.
• ADS is statistically proven to significantly decrease the tingling sensation due to the aggression by the lactic acid, which demonstrates the soothing effect of ADS.*
