The Olive Leaf

Native to the Mediterranean basin, the leaves of the olive tree have had a long human use history dating back to Egyptian times with continued use in folk medicine and to current day applications.

Olive leaf extractions are known for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial properties and other bio-activities.

The leaves contain a complex variety of bioactive substances including phenolic compounds,
triterpenic acids, iridoids, and sugars. Among these some major constituents include: oleanolic and maslinic acids, oleuropein, oleuropeoside, ligustroside, hydroxytyrosol and their glucosides, and mannitol. These compounds impart a wide range of benefits for topical skin care.

DL Linefade™ Product Information

DL Linefade™, a vegan bio-active complex, is derived from 100% renewably-sourced plant-based materials. Reverses the age-related appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin by targeting a key protein, collagen IV, which anchors the epidermis to the dermis.

The proposed mechanism of action involves PPAR-α and its related retinoid pathways, as referenced in ‘PPAR-α agonist-containing olive leaf-derived complex induces collagen IV in human skin models.’ Int J Cosmet Sci. 2021 Oct 18.

Clinically Proven to Reduce the Signs of Aging

In vitro cell culture studies demonstrated significant increases of collagens I and IV (+221% and +319% respectively). Ex vivo human skin explant studies have shown increases in ceramides and collagen IV (+25%, +52% respectively).

Using VisioTOP-300 + AEVA-V3 imaging and analysis techniques, a twenty-subject single-blinded randomized split-face study was conducted over 45 days; and showed statistically significant improvements in both crow’s feet wrinkles and facial sagging.
