Five Actives Target Beauty

June 11, 2007

Beauty is famously in the eye of the beholder. This reality is reflected in LS’ Entielles, a new range of naturally-derived actives from Laboratoires Sérobiologiques, the active ingredients business of global specialty chemicals supplier Cognis. The range is based around five distinct interpretations of femininity, originating from the five continents and illustrates the diversity among the conceptions of beauty. It also enables manufacturers to satisfy consumer demands for natural-source personal care products with biological active ingredients that offer proven benefits and safety.

LS’ Entielle Ressource is an advanced plant extract from the African camphor bush (tarchonanthus camphorates) that can significantly reduce the production of free radicals under stressful conditions. It also provides detoxifying and soothing effects. LS’ Entielle Allure is an advanced extract of lovage (also known as levisticum officinale) which skin to give it a youthful look.

LS’ Entielle Harmonie enables manufacturers to offer products that give an overall sense of relaxation. It consists of extracts of spiked ginger lily (hedychium spicatum), a plant that grows naturally in India.

The fourth ingredient is LS’ Entielle Spiritualité, a fragrant extract of white sandalwood (michelia alba) that belongs to the magnolia family. This natural ingredient is suitable for calming products.

The final ingredient in the range, LS’ Entielle Volupté, has been developed from an Amazonian pepper plant (schinus terebinthifolius). This spicy and sensual active significantly increases the dopamine release of neurons.
