Ingredients Taking Centerstage in Skin Care Segment

Recent Launches

Preserving Natural Beauty with Renewable Biotechnology

Greenaltech has recently launched ALGAKTIV® UpLift, the latest skincare ingredient based on the shells of Haematococcus pluvialis. It is a purified fraction of microalgae polysaccharides that lift the skin from head to toe.

With sustainability at its core, H. pluvialis is grown combining glacial water and 100% geothermal energy to create the purest nutraceutical Astaxanthin. The ingredient is sourced from Iceland 'The Land of Fire and Ice' - known for its volcanic and glacial terrain. It is the next generation of green ingredients for skincare.

New Approach for Formulators to Promote Healthy Aging Skin

CELYSCENCE™ by Clariant is a holistic and nature-derived solution for counteracting senescent-associated skin damage and promoting healthy aging skin. The new ingredient targets this major contributor to the skin aging process to recover healthy skin and improve hydration, brightness.

Demonstrating its scientifically proven effectiveness on areas including the aging-sensitive yet often neglected décolleté, CELYSCENCE™ delivers a new approach for formulators to innovate and differentiate in the healthy aging skin care space.

COSMOS-approved Active Reenergizes Fatigued Skin

Greentech CIRCALYS GREENTECH has recently introduced CIRCALYS®, an innovative COSMOS-approved active ingredient that efficiently reduces the impacts on skin and mood of fatigue induced by modern off-beat life.

CIRCALYS® is a potent active ingredient titrated in andrographolide, a molecule identified by Greentech scientists to counteract circadian disruption and revitalize skin. Inspired by Ayurveda, CIRCALYS® was developed from Green Chiretta (Andrographis paniculata), a major detoxifying plant in Ayurvedic traditional medicine.

CIRCALYS®: a chrono-detox feel good energizing active ingredient designed through chronobiological and psychobiological concepts. China & COSMOS-approved, 100 percent natural origin (ISO 16128).

Remastered Concept for a New Collagen Era

LipoTrue introduces new collagen era with Col-Frag remastered™, a type I collagen fragment produced in Wild plants as biofactories. This sustainable technology allows LipoTrue to obtain a molecule identical to a fragment of the human collagen type I sequence, with the proper post-translational hydroxylations required to be fully functional.

Col-Frag remastered™ acts as a building block and booster for collagen synthesis, and tightens the dermis and epidermis while preventing senescence. It revealed a synergistic effect and a superior efficacy to Ascorbyl Glucoside in reducing wrinkles, providing a facelift and enhancing skin brightness.

COSMOS-approved Ingredient Reduces Gravity-induced Skin Sagging

Gattefossé launches EleVastin™, a truly natural origin active ingredient to reduce gravity-induced skin sagging. The ingredient strengthens the elasticity of the skin, giving it the support needed to cope with this downward pressure.

The efficacy of EleVastin™ has been demonstrated using various models of increasing complexity. The ingredient boosts key proteins involved in the synthesis and maintenance of functional elastic fibers: elastin, fibrillin-1 and fibulin-5. It also protects elastic fibers against their degradation by elastases.

Through this mechanism of action, it ensures an increase of the density of elastic fibers coupled with an augmented skin elasticity. These last outcomes have been obtained using an advanced spheroid model developed in our cell culture laboratory.

Customizable Beauty Pearls

Solabia presents Emul’Spheres®, 100% customizable beauty pearls (Crazy Spheres® range) that can incorporate the lipophilic ingredients of your choice (botanical oils, oily macerates, emollients, oily active ingredients, etc.) into an emulsifier-free emulsion to keep only what is essential: the care of your skin.

In response to growing consumer demand for more natural, safer and environmentally conscious beauty, Solabia Group Research has created Emul’Spheres®, a new oil-rich pearl technology which incorporates an emulsifier-free emulsion into a delicate pearl.

Respectful of your skin and the planet, Emul’Spheres® are real pearls of softness, which combine naturality with elegance, comfort and efficacy.

Emulsifier that Meets Your Naturalness Criteria

Heliosoft™ by Lucas Meyer Cosmetics is a mild and soft O/W lamellar emulsifier, composed of 100% natural origin ingredients from sunflower and rapeseed. Heliosoft™ brings softness to your formulas, while taking care of the most sensitive skin.

Heliosoft™ is a smart combination that allows the formulation of fluid to thick textures with a unctuous softness upon application and leaves a comfortable sensation on the skin.

Heliosoft™ has been proven to quickly restore the barrier function of damaged skin, keep the skin hydrated for up to 8 hours, and can enhance bioavailability and penetration of active ingredients for improved efficacy.
