AAK Personal Care snapped up an Award of Merit at this year’s PCHi China Personal Care & Cosmetics Innovation Awards (CPCCI) for its Lipex Shea Tris bioactive ingredient for functional skin care. Sourced from sustainable shea butter, this concentrate of triterpene esters is obtained by advanced processing methods and can provide skin restoring, soothing and protecting properties. It prevents collagen breakdown and protects against environmental stress.
“Shea butter triterpenes are known to reduce the effect of environmental stress,” said Jari Alander, AAK’s technical director. “Our studies have found that Lipex Shea Tris also protects skin against the damaging effects of UVR that lead to premature aging.”
Suitable for all skin types and a wide range of cosmetic product formats, Lipex Shea Tris improves elasticity and firmness, provides protection and can produce a luminous skin tone resulting in smoother, younger looking skin.
The award was presented at a Grand Awards Ceremony in Shanghai during PCHi. The CPCCI Awards are sponsored by Ringier Trade Media with its Happi China magazine and Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions with the PCHi trade show.
