EXO-T™ is an exopolysaccharide from Kopara (microorganisms mat) living in unique ecosystem in the rims of French Polynesian atolls. EXO-T™ has demonstrated a higher activity than retinoic acid in the stimulation of the desquamation markers. It is a potent inducer of differentiation markers in keratinocytes. EXO-T™ protects the collagen network and thus contributing to skin regeneration. It improves skin smoothness leading to an even skin complexion. EXO-T™ also helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks and age spots.

Who never heard about the beautiful islands of French Polynesia. The sandy beaches, the turquoise lagoons, the tropical forests, the exotic fruits and flowers, the black tahitian pearls… a hidden paradise of beauty! Located in the Pacific Ocean near Tahiti, Moorea is known as the “Magical Island”. A true paradise, Moorea is in fact an atoll. The shallow salt waters of Moorea lagoon are the site of the accumulation of organic matter of microbial origin that forms mats called “Kopara”.

Kopara are ecosystems constituted of laminated layers produced by microorganisms that grow through colorful vertical gradients according to their needs in oxygen, sulphide, and light. Kopara are mainly constituted of pure microorganisms, free of other organic deposits. To protect themselves from UV, pH and salinity variations, Kopara produce exopolysaccharides (EPS) as a protective shield.
