BASF Beauty Care Solutions is promoting several novel skin care ingredients for the personal care market. For instance, Slim-Excess (INCI: Water, butylene glycol, sodium chloride, hydrolyzed carrageenan and xanthan gum) helps reduce the appearance of cellulite in two weeks, according to clinical trial results. In a two-week study, Slim-Excess, a disaccharide of marine origin, inhibited lipogenesis and activated lipolysis. After two weeks, there was a visible decrease in cellulite, along with an increase in skin firmness. According to BASF Beauty Care Solutions, the decrease in cellulite observed by panelists was more significant with a Slim-Excess and caffeine formula than with a caffeine-only formula. Eighty-one percent of subjects found that the Slim-Excess and caffeine product left their skin increasingly firm after only one month of application.
Lys'lastine V (INCI: Water, peucedanum graveolens (dill) extract, xanthan gum), is an elastin enabler that helps renew skin elasticity through the reinduction of LOXL synthesis. The presence of LOXL substantially improves the elasticity of reconstructed dermis, according to BASF Beauty Care Solutions. In fact, 95% of women found their skin to be more elastic and 81% of women found their facial architecture improved.
