Pilisoft LS Ideal for Sensitive Skin

July 14, 2008

Shaving and depilation are time-consuming procedures that must be repeated on a regular basis—so it’s not surprising that consumers want solutions that are gentle, quicker to perform and leave skin smoother for longer. Pilisoft LS 9760 is a mild, preservative-free, plant-based active ingredient from Laboratoires Sérobiologiques (LS), the active ingredient business of Cognis Care Chemicals, that enables manufacturers to offer precisely these benefits.

According to the company, it is ideal for post-depilatory and aftershave products that not only soothe the skin, but keep it soft, too. This botanical extract contains gymnemic acids, which play a major role in the inhibition process of hair follicle activity. More info: www.laboratoires-serobiologiques.com
