December 21, 2011

ReGeniStem Red Rice wins accolades at Incosmetics Asia.

Lonza has been commended with the Gold Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award for its ReGeniStem Red Rice at Incosmetics Asia. This sustainable anti-aging active, derived from a meristematic culture of Himalayan Red Rice, finds application in skin care products.

According to the company, in vitro testing showed that the functionality of the ingredient comes from its ability to influence the epigenome of several genes important to skin barrier. In vivo efficacy testing proved its ability to increase moisture in the skin while enhancing its overall appearance. It claimed the top spot for its high material efficiency, sustainability and innovation.

Dr. Tim Schlange, head of Personal Care from Lonza Ltd, said, “We’re delighted to have won this prestigious award. A great deal of hard work goes into re-searching and developing our ingredients and so to gain recognition for our product from leading professionals within the industry is fantastic.”

The new award, which has been introduced this year, recognizes the development of a novel active or functional ingredient that combines innovative science and product features that demonstrate benefits to manufacturers and end-users when compared with existing ingredients.
