Marinwort is a cosmetic ingredient composed of 5 kinds of algae developed to help remove cellulite; a product of Ichimaru Pharcos of Japan.
Accumulation of excessive subcutaneous fat, retention of body fluid, and denaturation of corium are processes that occur in the body forming cellulite. To reduce this excessive accumulation of fat or triacylglycerol, it is necessary to decompose it into fatty acids and glycerol by the action of lipase. The resulting fatty acids are then disposed of in the form of energy. The lipolytic enzyme lipase plays a key role in this process. Lipase is activated in adipose cells through cyclic AMP by the stimulus of some hormones such as adrenaline.
Since lipase is activated through c-AMP, substances that are capable of providing c-AMP externally or inhibit phosphodiesterase which decomposes c-AMP can be used to activate lipase in any specific area of the body.
Marinwort IP-11 AGL has been found to effectively activate lipase. That is, it helps prevent the excessive production of lipid in skin which causes cellulite.
