Optimization of the biomechanical properties of the skin

Natural silicon supply for cutaneous restructuring

Anti-aging (prevention) + regenerating (repair) – face and body

Metabolic normalization and optimization of cellular communications


The weather, the environment, our lifestyle, our own metabolism are potential sources of premature aging of the skin. They lead to visible consequences such as dehydration, loss of elasticity, age tasks …

Aging causes a collapse of the skin structure as well as a decrease in cellular communications and a slowing down of the metabolic functions of all the cells that make up the skin.

Research has highlighted a major event of this degradation: the loss of a constituent element of the skin, silicon.

A true skin cement, silicon is involved in the organization of connective tissue and has the ability to normalize many skin metabolisms. Silicon is an essential element to keep skin hydrated, elastic and showing little signs of fatigue.

The goal is to reload the silicon skin to ensure optimal structure and operation.


Principle of action

EXSYMOL has identified a source of plant-derived silicon to compensate for natural losses of silicon in the skin, according to the principles of SILANOLS technology.

PHYKOSIL offers multiple benefits through different approaches:

  • He’s an architect: restructuring the skin
  • It’s a coach: normalization and optimization of metabolic activity
  • It is a bodyguard: by combining with certain constituents of the skin, they protect them from different stress

General characteristics

PHYKOSIL (INCI name: ASPARAGOPSIS ARMATA EXTRACT) is an active ingredient obtained from the micro-grinding of cells of a red alga rich in biologically active silicon.

The expert’s opinion

PHYKOSIL is more than just an excerpt

The presence of intracellular silicon varies within ASPARAGOSIS ARMATA depending on its maturity.

These are the young seedlings that contain the most biologically active intracellular silicon.

After the harvest of the seedlings (from a microbouting in basin), the intracellular liquid is recovered by successive microbrilling.

During this phase, the silicon is stabilized during the cell burst by the carrageenans contained in this same alga.

PHYKOSIL is multi functional because it meets the needs of the skin first

Its multi functionality is unlimited and tested and approved for many years all over the world by all types of cosmetic products: cosmetic, dermo, solar and all types of application: face, body, eye contour, anti stretch marks …

Combine PHYKOSIL and another active ingredient: the ultimate cosmetic approach

PHYKOSIL prepares the skin to optimize the effectiveness of any other active ingredient and maintain long-term results.

PHYKOSIL respects the functioning of the skin

Sa logique: le respect des métabolismes naturels de la peau, principe de normalisation métabolique.

Its goal: to restore the physical and functional properties of young skin
