Silab Lifting Product Uses Sugar, Oats

June 11, 2007

Firmer, more toned, smoother skin: that is what women want as the years pass. Daily care products that are immediately and visibly effective are in strong demand in today’s market. Osilift, a sugar-based tensor ingredient, is Silab’s new spearhead.

An elastic, flexible molecule, Osilift is a purified fraction of branched natural polyoses obtained from avena sativa (oats). This very-high-molecular-weight network of complex sugars linked by intra- and inter-chains hydrogen bonds adheres to the surface of the skin in a continuous, cohesive “lifting” film. Easy formulability, strong lifting power and exceptionally long-lasting: Osilift can be incorporated into all tensor and remodelling face and body care products. More info: www.silab.fr.
