Forms Light Skin-compatible Film to Reduce Environmental Stressors

The skin’s surface lipids become highly impacted when exposed to environmental stress. This stress alters the skin barrier function, facilitating the penetration of irritants and increasing transepidermal water loss (TEWL). As a result, the skin becomes dry and presents sensitivity associated with redness and a stinging sensation. In addition, a compromised skin barrier function can lead to a burning sensation upon application of cosmetic products.

There is a growing need for a gentle, soothing texture agent that reduces the skin’s sensitivity to aggressions and enables the use of skincare and cosmetic products without worrying about uncomfortable side effects. Gattefossé’s Emulium® Dermolea MB, its latest O/W plant-origin emulsifier, a true ally of sensitive skin. Composed of plant lipids close to the skin’s surface and rich in anti-inflammatory pentacyclic triterpenes and sterols, Emulium® Dermolea MB forms a light, skin-compatible film proven to reduce the impact of environmental stressors on the skin. It provides long-lasting relief by strengthening the skin barrier function, hydrating, and protecting the skin.

Is multifunctional, making it possible to develop a wide range of cosmetic applications suitable for all skin types and climates. It can emulsify oil phases up to 40% and create thin sprays to thick butter suitable for skin care, sun care, makeup, and hair/scalp care. It is in the form of pellets, making it easy to formulate.

Skin sensitivity is an increasing issue worldwide. We have developed an ingredient that enables the formulation of textures with proven soothing benefits. Gattefossé’s lipid chemists have used their expertise in functionalized plant waxes to obtain a high-performance O/W emulsifier. COSMOS-approved, suitable for vegan formulations, and fully substantiated in vitro, in vivo, and ex vivo, this new ingredient will meet the currentexpectations of formulators and consumers.

“We are delighted that Emulium® Dermolea MB is among the shortlisted functional ingredients of the in-cosmetics global innovation zone awards. We cannot wait to launch this product at the show officially!” said Lysiane Teyssier, product marketing leader, PC textures & applications at Gattefossé.
