How menopause affects the skin

Oestrogen is an essential ingredient in maintaining healthy skin. It activates oestrogen receptors in key skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to promote healthy skin and a vibrant looking appearance.

As oestrogen levels decrease during menopause, the skin loses a large amount of collagen over a short space of time.

  • 30% loss of skin’s collagen within the first five years of menopause1
  • 1% loss of skin’s collagen in each subsequent year1
  • 1% decline in skin thickness in each postmenopausal year1

This is the reason why as you approach and go through menopause, you’ll probably notice some big changes to your skin. Increased dryness, sagging, dullness, more wrinkles; it’s all normal. The good news is, you can take control and redefine how your skin ages.

How Emepelle® Restores Vitality to Menopausal Skin

The Emepelle regime contains a host of active ingredients including retinol, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. But what makes Emepelle totally different to even the best traditional anti-ageing creams is that it also contains MEP Technology®.

MEP Technology: A Breakthrough Innovation for Menopause Skincare

MEP Technology® is a new kind of ingredient that rejuvenates menopausal skin. It encourages the skin to behave as if the oestrogen were still there. MEP doesn’t add oestrogen to the body. Instead, it helps key skin cells work the way they did before menopause, when they were being stimulated by oestrogen. This process helps restore lost collagen and vitality. Resulting in younger-looking skin that’s hydrated, brighter and firmer.

MEP Technology® and Emepelle® Clinically Proven Benefits

MEP Technology® and Emepelle® have been thoroughly tested in clinical studies by leading dermatologists. Here’s what they found.
