Induchem's Neodermyl® Recognized with in-cosmetics' 2013 Best Ingredient Gold Award

Published on 2013-05-02. Author : SpecialChem

Induchem was praised by the entire cosmetic industry for its new ingredient Neodermyl® at in-cosmetics held recently in Paris.

The in-cosmetics' Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award honours the development of novel actives or functional ingredients that successfully combine scientific superiority, formulation benefits for manufacturers and efficacy for consumers when compared to other products currently available on the market.

Over 70 ingredients from leading suppliers were judged this year by a panel of industry experts including:

  • Mrs Claudie Willemin, L'Oréal, Présidente of Société Française de Cosmétologie (SFC),
  • Dr Shuliang Zhang, PhD, Clinical Site Leader, Unilever Research & Development Shanghai,
  • Dr Prithwiraj Maitra, PhD, Center of Excellence Leader: Cleansing, Hair and Color Cosmetics, Johnson & Johnson,
  • Dr Angela Eppler, PhD, Senior R&D Scientist at Pfizer Consumer Healthcare.

The judges awarded the Gold prize to Induchem for its scientific innovation, the use of green chemistry and the demonstrated efficacy of the ingredient that offers real benefits in formulation.

Neodermyl® is a pure source of bio-renewable energy that has been created through rational design by Libragen, Induchem's advanced biotechnology R&D center on active ingredients. This molecule is the first one on the market to reactivate both collagen and elastin synthesis in the skin, and to re-energise senescent fibroblasts by supplying them with an activated source of cellular energy. This results in a fast and sustainable production of Collagen III, Collagen I, Tropoelastin and Elastin, which leads to visible improvement of skin texture and reduction of wrinkles' depth in two weeks. In just 15 days Neodermyl® gives equivalent results as one needle injection of collagen by a plastic surgeon (-15% wrinkle depth reduction), while improving skin's elasticity and firmness.

"Our R&D and marketing teams have worked incredibly hard together to create Neodermyl®, a product we are extremely proud of. With more than 67 years of expertise in the cosmetic industry, Induchem has been well known for the quality and reliability of its ingredients. Over the past years, our scientific research has enabled the launch of pioneering molecules such as "anti-UV vaccine" (Uvaxine®), the first biomimetic peptide acting on a delta-opioid receptors (Rubixyl®) and a needle-free hyaluronic filler (NovHyal® Biotech-G). We are honored that the cosmetic community has recognized our company's innovation with this prestigious award. The year 2013 thus far has been a very productive year and we look forward o the future" said Fabrice Lefèvre, Scientific Marketing Manager, Induchem.
