Vitamin C is the anti-ageing vita-
min par excellence. It concentrates
a great anti-oxidising, collagen-re-
generating, illuminating and bal-
In its intention to offer the most
advanced and avantgarde cosmetics,
Germaine de Capuccini goes one step
further: Based on the latest research on
skin ageing, it combines the powerful
action of Vitamin C (VC-IP derivative)
with the Ume Extract, capable of in-
hibiting the action of glycation.
What is Glycation or the A.G.E.?
Glycation is a chemical reaction
that day by day ages us and that is
related to the excess of sugar that we
This reaction is also promoted by
oxidative stress and UV radiation.
The A.G.E. (Advanced Glycation End
Products) are molecules generated by
the glycation process.
What is its effect on the skin?
With age, the glycosylated proteins
accumulate in the cells and end up de-
stroying the support cushion of the skin
(formed by collagen and elastin).
The glycation reaction
occurs in two stages:
• 1. Union of sugar with the protein.
• 2. Appearance of the A.G.E..
When the A.G.E.
accumulate on the skin:
• The collagen and elastin fibres de-
generate, the skin loses suppleness
and firmness, colour and uniformity.
• A pallid tone of the skin appears
known in Japan as "kusumi effect"
Glycation is a slow and irreversible
process, so it is advisable to fight it
before, little by little, it damages the
support structure of the dermis and
consequently the skin's ageing process
is accelerated: flaccidity, expression
lines and wrinkles, dark and matt tone.
The specific formula of Timexpert
C+ (A.G.E.) combines the following
ingredients to preserve and alleviate the
ageing caused by glycation on the skin:
