SEPPIC_Tan _BoosterSEPPIC’s brand of cosmetic active ingredients, wesource™, has developed LUMIPOD™, a smart melanin activator for a safe tan. LUMIPOD™ is a tan booster that stimulates melanin synthesis and its transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes, without UV.

Stimulates Melanin Synthesis


The new active ingredient, esterified Aminovector™, is a defined molecule, 100 percent from natural origin, COSMOS-approved, with stable and reproducible composition and strong performance.

In vivo tests have shown that LUMIPOD™ at 1 percent provides a better efficacy than acetyl tyrosine (market reference), with significantly visible results from 4 days (6 percent of tanning variation measured by ITA - Individual Typology Angle - on volunteers) and long-lasting effect (15 percent of variation maintained 15 days after the last product application).

This new active ingredient is a nice example of innovation that illustrates SEPPIC expertise and ability to answer consumers' need for naturality and efficacy. SEPPIC teams design, develop and create ingredients with the highest respect for people and the environment, advancing the science of ingredients for all,” said Anne-Sophie Dutailly, wesource™ marketing product manager.
