Oléos has launched Organic Diam Oléoactif (INCI:
Cocos Nucifera Oil (and) Oak Root Extract), an active
lipid complex that helps reduce inflammaging. This
ingredient was shown in vitro to reduce the secretion
rate of the inflammatory cytokine TNF-α, and to
scavenge free radicals. In vivo, it helped to prevent
the appearance of skin redness. Derived from cork
oak and coconut, Organic Diam Oléoactif is 100%
natural and 70% organic.
With skin relying on mitochondria for cell energy, Silab
introduced an active, Algophagyl (INCI: Chlorella Sorokiniana
Extract), to help preserve the equilibrium and correct the
functioning of mitochondria. Chlorella sorokiniana is a
microalgae that protects the mitochondrion by enabling it to
adapt to its environment and boost metabolism.
DSM has launched Beauactive (INCI: Hydroxystearic
Acid), a new active manufactured using green
technology. The ingredient corrects noticeable age
spots resulting from UVB stress. It also reduces the
appearance of facial pores by helping skin generate
more collagen. In vitro, Beauactive was shown to
activate the master cell regulator PPARα, which
benefits skin in a variety of ways.
