Based on groundbreaking developments in biotechnology, the natural regenerative powers of plant callus, and by collaborating with world-leading laboratories in Korea, Racinne delivers innovative and exceptional beauty products that aim to reveal and enhance people's natural beauty.

With the conviction that science and beauty are deeply intertwined, Racinne's scientists have undertaken a rigorous process of scientific discovery, selecting and combining the most powerful plant callus extracts, functional peptides and clinically-proven active ingredients to create exceptional skincare products that give exceptional results. In clinical tests, Racinne's products have been shown to increase suppleness, improve luminosity and the texture of skin.

In each of our products, Racinne ensures that a powerful blend of key active ingredients are integrated to provide high functionality with measurable benefits to the skin. With Racinne, highly advanced active ingredients are derived from nature and backed by scientific research to deliver unique and results-oriented skincare for our customers.


Racinne's SH-DP-9

SH-DP-9 is a synthetic neuropeptide exclusively developed for Racinne and represents the next step in advanced biotechnology.

As a breakthrough in skincare science, SH-DP-9 is a powerful anti-aging synthetic neuropeptide based on the fine selection of 60-plus peptides, a formula that effectively helps activate collagen and elastin production to correct fine lines and large pores. The SH-DP-9 formula also promotes cell density to resist against environmental free-radicals, facilitates nutrient absorption and stimulates blood circulation for youthful suppleness with a confident brilliant glow.

Utilizing "Advanced SH-DP-9 Synthesis" to integrate SH-DP-9 into its Ultimate Youth Power Series, Racinne is one of the few luxury brands in the beauty industry to use a synthetic neuropeptide in its products and is an example of Racinne's conviction to deliver innovative and exceptional beauty products to enhance people's natural beauty.

Callus Cultivation Technology

Racinne's Stem Cell Cultivation

As we age the stem cells in our epidermis lose their ability to regenerate, resulting in cataplasia, that is, the degenerative reversion of those skin cells. Dermis tissues face an even worse fate in mature years as they die off and drastically reduce in number, preventing our skin from healing while also causing our skin to lose elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and dark spots.

Plant callus extracts are crucial to fighting the visible signs of aging, as they possess the ability to regenerate and differentiate into diverse cells types. Callus cells are those that cover a plant's wounds. These cells help plants recover from tissue damage. In the beauty industry, callus extracts can be used to repair damaged skin and help the skin retain its elasticity. When such extracts are applied to skin, skin cells are energized, which helps to restore the skin's youthful and healthy glow. Unlike conventional plant extracts, plant callus extracts do not contain pesticide residues or contaminants, which is a further benefit.

Racinne utilizes revolutionary "Callus Cultivation Technology," a powerful formula exclusively developed by Racinne based on rare plant callus cells. By utilizing these highly active agents for strong antioxidant activity, Racinne's products promote the skin's elasticity, effectively strengthening the ability of skin cells to retain moisture while preventing signs of aging. Using rare plant callus extracts along with other effective active ingredients enables Racinne's products penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin to promote regeneration, improving dull, dehydrated and aged skin.


Racinne's Peptides

Peptides are little chains of amino acids that are not quite long enough to be deemed a protein. Peptides are important in various ways and can be used as hormones, neurotransmitters, and natural pain relievers. The skin contains natural peptides, which contribute to the structural strength of the skin and keep it plump and firm. There are different types of peptides with different functions in cellular signaling to instruct our cells which specific pathways should be activated and which specific goals should be accomplished. For this reason, peptides are particularly effective as skin care ingredients which will help reduce wrinkles and improve skin quality.


Neuropeptides (peptides occurring in the nervous system) are small, protein-like molecules that help neurons communicate with each other. Neuropeptides are a specific kind of complex peptide (short-chain polypeptides) containing up to 30 or 40 different amino acids and are found in the central and the peripheral nervous system that act by affecting neurotransmitters in the skin. Acting as messengers in the body, these molecules perform specific functions and serve as an activation point for cellular function in skin. This process reduces inflammation, increases collagen and elastin, repairs damaged skin and aging skin (wrinkles), and also increases blood circulation.

SH-Decapeptide-9 (SH-DP-9)

Racinne developed the Advanced SH-DP-9 Synthesis to integrate powerful neuropeptides into our Ultimate Youth Power Series to correct fine lines, minimize large pores and restore a youthful glow. Used topically, SH-DP-9 is quickly absorbed by the blood stream and mimics the actions of neuropeptides to activate collagen and elastin production, promote cell density, facilitate nutrient absorption, and stimulate blood cell circulation in your skin.

Neuropeptides are secreted from the brain and nerve cells when our skin is injured, and act on cell surface receptors to repair damage. As we grow older, our ability to produce neuropeptides weakens, causing wrinkles and pigmentation. SH-DP-9 (sh-Decapeptide-9) is a synthetically produced peptide consisting of amino acids arginine, glycine, leucine, lysine, phenylalanine, proline and tyrosine.

The integration of these neuropeptides into skin care products is considered revolutionary within the beauty industry, and Racinne has utilized advanced biotechnology to create a synthetic neuropeptide formula to deliver an innovative and effectively-proven anti-aging product.

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline) is a peptide consisting of six amino acids that works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause repeated facial expression wrinkling (crow.s feet, laugh lines, etc.).

This molecule is a non-toxic, non-irritant compound that modulates the excessive stimulation of the facial muscles , relaxing facial tension and it also reduces the depth of already formed wrinkles.

An anti-aging peptide comprised of six amino acids attached to a fatty acid group inhibits the formation and progression of expression related fine lines and wrinkles.

Copper Tripeptide-1

Copper tripeptide-1 stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Also known simply as copper, this mineral is an important trace element for human nutrition. The body needs copper to absorb and utilize iron, and copper is also a component of the powerful antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase. The synthesis of collagen and elastin is in part related to the presence of copper in the body. There is research demonstrating that copper is effective for wound healing and for anti-aging due to its inhibitory effect on matrix metalloproteinases and stimulation of fibroblasts that build healthy collagen.
