Innovations from Solabia Ideal for Hair and Skin

January 23, 2013

Rep’Hair by Solabia is a hair restructuring agent and a ceramide-like molecule that is obtained via green chemistry processes without solvent, from two saturated vegetal fatty acids, behenic acid (C22) and stearic acid (C18). It smoothes the cuticle, improves hair resistance and gives a gloss, according to the company.

Another interesting ingredient is Fucogel, a soothing moisturizer and sirtuins-1 activator. This polysaccharide is rich in fucose, modulating cell communication and epigenetic mechanisms, said the company. It decreases skin reactivity, so it is ideal for sensitive skin care. The ingredient also increases cellular longevity for anti-aging applications.

Viniderm by Solabia is also suggested for anti-aging. It is a grape juice made in France enriched with antioxidant polyphenols. It has a curative effect to reduce the signs of aging, said the company.
