The skin is a dynamic organ that contains different cells that are activated when the tissue is under attack by invading external aggressors (such as pathogens and pollution). As your skin is the first line of defence against irritants like time, sun exposure and stress, the condition of your skin’s defensive system is critical for self-repair.
Langerhans cells (present in the epidermis) play a crucial role in skin’s protection, triggering a defence system against stressors in order to achieve skin's highest beauty potential. When the function of Langerhans cells declines due to UV rays, dryness and emotional stress, it can cause skin concerns such as a loss of firmness, wrinkles and dark spots may appear.
After more than 20 years of research, Shiseido has discovered the effect the skin’s defensive system has on the health of the skin and created a complex that successfully supports Langerhans cells.*
