A Natural-Looking Tan derived from marine micro algae

February 7, 2014

To address the demand for a natural tan, Symrise rolled out SymBronze 1659. According to the company, the new, natural ingredient is derived from a sustainable and renewable source: the marine water microalgae Isochrysis galbana var T.ISO. It reliably enhances the pigmentation of the skin. The proven efficacy includes sunless self-tanning and an accelerated tan during UV exposure.

SymBronze 1659 can be used in many cosmetic applications like sunless self-tanning creams as well as products to prepare the skin for the bikini season. It significantly decreases the tanning time, said the company. Without exposure to UV rays, SymBronze 1659 provides a most natural looking tan. The effect actually lasts longer and looks much more natural than that of traditional self-tanners on the market. In after-sun products, it prolongs the tan. In combination with sun filters, its safe base-tan helps minimizing the risks associated with long-term sunbathing.

“Symrise has built a strong expertise in natural and safe skin toning over the past years,” said Dr. Marielle Le Maire, global product director, cosmetic ingredients at Symrise. “With SymBronze1659 we are also extending our range of naturals and sustainably-sourced ingredients. We see plenty of potential in this versatile approach and will come up with more inspiring ideas in the future.”
