Skinolance, Evonik's first microbiotic skin care product, uses the cell-free lactobacillus extract to promote the natural balance of the skin flora by stimulating the growth of certain beneficial bacteria. This has a positive effect on the barrier function of the skin helping to protect against roughness and dryness. These effects on the skin flora and skin appearance were verified in a clinical study.
Hairflux is an affordable ceramide blend for hair and scalp care, which can also be marketed in China (CFDA listing). The olive-based ceramide has a soothing effect on irritated scalps, and makes damaged hair much more resistant due to the gentle manufacturing process that preserves the natural ingredients, said the company. The product is suitable for use in hair tonics, care products for the scalp as well as rinses and shampoos for damaged hair.
TEGO Pep UP, a new tetrapeptide from Evonik, also has a CFDA listing. The active ingredient increases the collagen production of the skin and the fiber production in the extracellular matrix, which results in reduced wrinkle depth and more defined facial contours as visual effects. The product’s lifting effect is of interest for anti-aging and other formulations.
Evonik will also present TEGO enlight, a product developed for natural skin brightening. It contains a phytic acid salt obtained from rice bran and an extract of white mulberry fruit. Both components have brightening properties that complement each other favorably, and the product can be used for the treatment of age spots, and for general skin brightening.
In other news, with the introduction of Rheance One, the first ever glycolipids product, Evonik opens up a new frontier in all-natural cosmetic raw materials that offer both gentle and effective skin and hair cleansing. As a compound made up of sugar and fatty acids, glycolipids can be found in many instances throughout nature. Rheance One will be presented for the first time to a broad trade audience during the in-cosmetics 2018 tradeshow in Amsterdam.
These product innovations from Evonik will be on display at stand H 20 during in-cosmetics.
