Achromaxyl™ ISR Biofunctional is a skin lightening botanical extract with clinically proven efficacy on brightening skin color and age spots. This product is a patented skin-lightening active ingredient for cosmetic products. It is composed of fermented and hydrolyzed proteins extracted from the Brassicaceae family.
Acnacidol™ BG is a unique active ingredient aimed at re-establishing the physiological balance in acne-prone skin. It is composed of 10-hydroxydecanoic acid (10-HDA), sebacic acid and decanediol. The target molecule of Acnacidol™ BG, 10-HDA, is a synthetic bio-mimetic version of a hydroxyl acid naturally present in Royal Jelly. During clinical studies, Acnacidol™ BG provided excellent results for seboregulation. Additional in-vitro tests on Propionibacteriumacnes demonstrated excellent anti-bacterial activity.
Aqua-Osmoline™ is a purified Ceratonia Siliqua (Carob) Seed Extract rich in amino acids and peptides designed to improve skin glow and hydration, by targeting water channeling. It targets several key water-related molecules to help sustain skin’s moisture and glow over time, and to help resist the appearance of premature aging.
Aquarize IS™ is an anti-aging skin-moisturizing rice extract with clinically proven efficacy on short-term and long-term hydration of the skin. The uniqueness of this biofunctional ingredient is its ability to combine anti-aging and moisturizing properties, providing the skin with an “In and Out” hydration across the different layers. Clinical studies performed with Aquarize IS™ show short-term and long-term moisturizing benefits.
ATPeptide™ IS is an energy-boosting peptide specially designed to revitalize aging skin as well as smooth cellulite prone skin. It is a patented synthetic tripeptide designed to enhance cell energy rebound and boost cells' metabolism. It helps the skin to recover from physiological changes or environmental stresses.
Capauxein™ is a corn extract that may boost hair regeneration and targets cell adhesion, communication and hair elongation. Based on ex-vivo results, Capauxein™, part of the BiotHAIRapy™ line of biofunctional ingredients, may help enhance communication and cell signalin by improving the expression o fproteins involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion such as fibronectin, laminin and integrins.
Dermostatyl™ IS is a skin-lightening peptide obtained bysynthesis, which acts as an antagonist to a-MSH. The binding of a-MSH to its receptors mediates skin pigmentation. It competessfor a-MSH binding to its receptors, thereby decreasing melanin synthesis. Dermostatyl™ IS induces a decrease in the melanin content in epidermal cells.
D’Orientine™ S is a date palm kernel extract with clinically proven anti-wrinkle efficacy. Its free radical scavenging properties protect skin from environmental sources of aging and wrinkling. It is a patented, plant-derived active ingredient extracted from the date-palm kernel (Phoenix Dactylyfera).
Ederline™ S is an apple seed extract with clinically proven wrinkle reduction properties that helps to rejuvenate aged skin. It is a lipidic apple seed extract which counters skin aging deficiencies, such as hormone decline, by acting as a substitute. Ederline™ S is obtained through the extraction of the unsaponifiable fraction of the oilseed, which is known for its regenerating compounds including phytostimulines (phytohormones), ursolic acid (known for its soothing properties), phytosterols, tocopherolvitamins, and waxes.
GP4G IS™ is a unique plankton extract that energizes and protects skin from environmental stress, and enhances maintenance and repair. It is designed for energizing and regenerating skin care products. It is also offers a new way to increase cellular defenses against UV stress. This product suggested for use in day creams for DNA protection and repair; anti-photoaging cosmetic skin care; sun product.
Heliostatine IS™ is a patented active ingredient extracted from green peas and is designed for tan prolongation, skin protection, anti-aging and photo-aging cosmetic products. By increasing melanin synthesis, Heliostatine IS™ improves the skin’s natural physiological protection thereby prolonging the natural healthy glow and radiance of the skin.
Phytoquintescine™ is an innovative extract designed to help boost the skin's natural process to address oxidative stress, to preserve from environmental damage and premature signs of skin aging. This product is suggested for use in anti-aging products, anti-pollution and anti-stress products, radiance enhancing, sun care and products for sensitive skins.
Prolixir S20™ is a patent-pending dimer tripeptide specifically designed to target the Ubiquitin-Proteasome (Ub-P) System and to help achieve successful aging through a sustained proteasome efficacy and less protein damage.
Protectagen™ is a rice extract found to boost proteins linked to stem cell functions ex-vivo to optimize hair growth cycle. It helps boost markers of hair follicle stem cells associated with hair regeneration. This product may help preserve against harmful sun exposure, evidenced by the lower expression of P53 markers ex-vivo.
Quintescine™ IS is a glutathione-biomimetic antioxidant peptide that protects against glycation damage, protects skin from environmental stresses, and prevents loss of skin resiliency. It is a patented biological antioxidant peptide that increases the skin's antioxidant defenses, providing protection against all kinds of oxidative stress and reducing glycation damage.
Suberlift™ is a clinically proven botanical instant smoothing tensor that provides lift and firming to skin. It is a natural extract of the cork oak (Quercus suber), which contains the active ingredient suberin.
Thymophytane™ IS is a unique rice extract designed to reinforce the skin's physical and biological barrier functions and to preserve the youthful appearance of skin. It is a patented vegetal active ingredient for anti-aging and sensitive skin care products, obtained by selective extraction of the proteic fraction of rice (Oryza sativa) grains.
Vegetal Ceramides BGG™ is a skin barrier enhancer that is clinically proven to improve skin moisturization. It is derived from a rice extract containing a mixture of sphingolipids (ceramides) and phospholipids. Botanical Butylene Glycol is incorporated in place of synthetic Butylene Glycol. Ceramides play an important role in the structure and quality of the stratum corneum. Ceramides represent the main components of the intercellular lipid cement (40%).
Vegetal Ceramides BGS™ is a skin barrier enhancer that is clinically proven to improve skin moisturization. It is derived from a rice extract containing a mixture of sphingolipids (ceramides) and phospholipids. Ceramides play an important role in the structure and quality of the stratum corneum. Ceramides represent the main components of the intercellular lipid cement (40%).
Vital ET™ is a new and unique bio-functional form of Vitamin E. It delivers proven anti-erythemal and anti-inflammatory benefits. The properties of Vital ET™ can be used in the formulation of products for the prevention and remediation of sunburn, for acne, and treatment products targeting the effects of ageing and environmental stress.
