Cellulite and how to minimize it is a hot topic and just about anyone can understand why. Not only can cellulite be unsightly—even sometimes showing through our clothes—it can make us feel like we’re getting old although even young people often have some degree of cellulite. Cellulite is such an important topic to our readers that our blog, “Cellulite: What It Is and How to Minimize It” turns out to be our most-read blog this year.
In this article, let’s look at a number of key natural high tech compounds, oils and other ingredients that when formulated together in a product we love—Modere CellProof Body Firming Foam—produce a lightweight, silky formula designed to visibly smooth and tighten the appearance of cellulite and dimpled skin on areas like the neck, thighs and abdomen.
First is award winning BioCell Collagen™ CG which provides hydrolyzed(1) collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. This signature cosmetic-grade ingredient restores hydration and leaves skin looking smooth and nourished.
Hydrolyzed collagen type II is derived from cartilage, bone, and other types of connective tissues in animals and humans. This type of collagen is most well-known for its ability to support firmer skin.
Peptides are strings of amino acids known as the building blocks of all proteins and most especially, certain proteins like collagen and elastin that are needed by the skin. Using a product like Modere CellProof Body Firming Foam that contains peptides leads to firmer, younger looking skin.
Chondroitin sulfate, a chemical found in human and animal cartilage, and which supports connective tissue, is often combined with hyaluronic acid as it is in CellProof Body Firming Foam.
Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule in combatting aging of the skin:
”Skin aging is a multifactorial process consisting of two distinct and independent mechanisms: intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Youthful skin retains its turgor [fullness], resilience and pliability, among others, due to its high content of water. Daily external injury, in addition to the normal process of aging, causes loss of moisture. The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid (HA) that has unique capacity in retaining water.” — Eleni Papakonstantinou et al in Hyaluronic Acid: A Key Molecule in Skin Aging
Advanced revitalizer MACALINE® Maca is developed by Expanscience Laboratoires in Paris La Défense, France. MACALINE® is a water-based active ingredient extracted from organic maca leaves and sustainably sourced out of Peru, the country most known for maca production. Maca is an ancient root plant superfood.
MACALINE® is rich in polyphenols(2) and is a slimming, firming and lymph(3) draining active ingredient. It helps restore a slender silhouette by boosting the shedding of fat.(4)
MACALINE® Maca also works to encourage proper microcirculation so important for skin’s radiance and firmness.
Another advanced revitalizer and high-tech natural compound PRO-SVELTYL® made by Silab out of Saint-Viance, France, is derived from sacred lotus or more colloquially, the water lily. Rich in flavonols,(5) it reduces fat storage, prevents tissue inflammation and preserves the fiber architecture of the skin. It acts as a strong anti-cellulite agent and improves the functionality of adipose tissue.
Both MACALINE® maca and PRO-SVELTYL® work to firm, tighten and smooth the appearance of cellulite and dimpled skin.
Peppermint oil in this product improves circulation while it calms, softens and tones the skin.
Aloe vera moisturizes skin while its antioxidant properties fight free radicals (mutated cells) that cause signs of aging.
Abyssinian oil derived from the Crambe abyssinica plant is a most excellent moisturizer with potent anti-aging properties: easily absorbed by the epidermis, it actively works to smooth wrinkles and lines and nourish dry, dehydrated skin.
Through the action of lipolysis—the breakdown of fats and other lipids by hydrolysis to release fatty acids—pomegranate in Modere CellProof Body Firming Foam is an active, effective anti-cellulite agent.
Finally, meadowfoam acts as an emollient, sealing in moisture to keep skin soft and supple. Meadowfoam is an oil derived from the seeds of the meadowfoam plant (Limnanthes alba) and is composed primarily of fatty acids and antioxidants both of which are absolute requirements for skin’s radiance and more youthful appearance.
Reviewing this information on only eight principal ingredients out of close to 40 in this product, it might be easy to see how Modere CellProof Body Firming Foam can effectively work on cellulite. For optimal results, pair CellProof with award-winning Liquid BioCell, the super-nutraceutical scientifically shown to nourish skin from the inside. This exclusive 360° approach delivers patented Collagen/HA Matrix® Technology in both a topical (CellProof) and an ingestible form (Liquid BioCell), for visibly radiant skin.

(1) A hydrolyzed compound means that it is brokendown by chemical reaction with water.
(2) Polyphenols are plant compounds that boost digestion, brain and heart health. They are known to help protect against Type 2 diabetes and potentially certain cancers. They do this by acting as antioxidants that neutralize harmful disease-causing free radicals through cell damage.
(3) Lymph is a colorless fluid containing white blood cells which bathes the tissues and drains through the lymphatic system into the bloodstream.
(4) MACALINE® also acts on fibrosis (thickening and scarring of connective tissue) in the hypodermis.
(5) Flavonols are polyphenols (see first footnote) shown to help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the brain and heart, prevent blood clots, and fight cell.
