Mibelle Biochemistry Launches PoreAway

December 7, 2011

Matifying pore refiner is based on mastic extract.

PoreAway, a matifying pore refiner new from Mibelle Biochemistry—who is celebrating its 20th anniversary, by the way—is based on a premium extract of mastic, a plant resin that is known for its anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. Mastic is exclusively obtained from the Pistacia lentiscus tree, which is endemic to the Greek island of Chios. Mastic has been recognized since the ancient time for its therapeutic properties, notably to clean teeth and freshen the breath thanks to its anti-microbial properties.

Despite its purifying and astringent effects the application of mastic in cosmetic has been limited due to its insolubility in water. Mibelle Biochemistry has now developed a preparation of mastic, embedded in a smart vector system, that enables it to use this highly potent resin for the very first time in a convenient preparation for cosmetic applications, according to the company. Clinical studies with PoreAway conducted on Caucasian and Asian skin resulted in a significant reduction of pore size and a rapid elimination of skin impurities and a smooth, matte finish.
