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, pollution). As your skin is the first defense against irritants like time, exposure and stress, the condition of your skin’s defensive system is critical towards self-repair.
Langerhans cells (present in the epidermis) play a crucial role in skin’s protection, triggering defenses against stressors 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 to appear such as loss of firmness, and wrinkles and dark spots appear.
After more than 20 years of research, Shiseido has determined the effect skin’s defensive system has on the condition of the skin and created a complex that successfully supports Langerhans cells.*
