Givaudan Unveils New Active that Reduces Appearance of Stretch MarksGivaudan Active Beauty introduces Centella CAST, the natural remodeling partner crafted by green fractionation from one of the most well-known medicinal plants, Centella Asiatica.

Acting on the mechanisms responsible for the formation of stretch marks, this ingredient of choice acts on four different levels to restore skin elasticity, density, and firmness, reducing the appearance of stretch marks for all consumers.

Improve Skin’s Collagen Content

This light and delicate emulsion will reduce the appearance of stretch marks, improve overall skin’s collagen content and fade the color of stretch marks over time.

Centella CAST has been clinically tested on women and demonstrates significant epidermal and dermal improvements at four different levels:

  • Epidermal thickness at the center of stretch marks (+39%)
  • Skin elasticity (+62%)
  • Skin microcirculation (+162%)
  • Skin appearance (+42%)

“Skin damage in stretch marks is normally focused on the dermis, where we can observe disruption of the normal elastic fiber network, altered collagen fiber, loss of fiber organization and orientation, and erythema. As a result, the skin appears less firm and malleable, with stretch marks visible.”

Centella CAST efficiently counteracts these issues and helps skin regain elasticity and firmness. Thanks to these multiple mechanisms, it may also be applied head to toe featuring a global firming, anti-sagging effect,” stated Giada Maramaldi, global category manager for Active Beauty.

Often considered as an unavoidable side effect of pregnancy, stretch marks or straie can develop on the skin at any age for both women and men. Up to 86% of Americans experience stretch marks during puberty and one in two women during pregnancy. This global skin condition, which is not physically dangerous or disabling, can lead to self-confidence issues. For example, 71% of women in France say to be concerned about the appearance of stretch marks.

This ingredient was highlighted at NYSCC Suppliers’ Day which took place in New York from 3-4 May.
