Tego Cistus is a standardized plant extract highly enriched in polyphenols from the pink rock rose. Cistus incanus spp. tauricus grows in Europe and parts of the Middle East and has a historical use in traditional European medicine.

On a molecular level, Tego Cistus provides broad DNA protection activity. It delivers strong anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects, shields the skin surface and helps to protect the skin against external aggressions, such as UV light and pollution.

Tego Stemlastin is a standardized micro algae extract of a particular red alga, produced in a natural, eco-friendly way. The alga Cyanidium caldarium is able to survive under extreme environmental conditions. Therefore, the extract delivers a special intracellular composition of extremolytes such as mineral nutrients, amino acids and algae polyphenols.

In addition, Tego Stemlastin is enriched in gamma amino butyric acid (GABA). Tego Stemlastin protects and maintains epidermal stem cell capacity for rejuvenated skin activity. On a molecular level, it boosts elastic fibers leading to highly supple skin and reduction of skin elasticity fatigue.

Overall, Tego Stemlastin retains a youthful appearance and reduces the signs of chronological aging, according to the company.

In other news, Tegosoft AC from Evonik combines the trend for natural based products as well as lighter textures in the skin care segment. Sensory panel tests proved that this emollient imparts a light and non-oily skin feel. It is also 100% vegetable-based.
