Poet’s Narcissus Fuels New Plant Active from Naolys

September 27, 2013

Naolys, a French company that specializes in plant cell culture, recently launched a new active plant cell with a brightening activity from the Poet’s narcissus (narcissus poeticus). Inside Light Poet’s narcissus are whole plant cells that regulate the melanin production at different levels, therefore limit the skin pigmentation, said the company.

In vitro tests show a decrease of the transformation of the phenylalanin in tyrosine, a decrease of the activity of the tyrosinase and a decrease of the transfer of melanosomes in keratinocytes. In addition, a clinical study shows a decrease of spots by 10% and contrast by 11% on the face (mexametric measurement of melanine index–28 days of treatment).

All tests were performed with a concentration of 0.5% of a dispersion made of 20% cells and 80% vegetal glycerin. Inside Light Poet’s narcissus is not allergenic, preservative free, and can be used in any formulation from skin care to make-up applications.
