Natural and artificial blue light damages skin and induces premature aging. Nature’s answer to blue light are carotenoids, which shield blue light and protect against blue-light induced oxidative stress. Besides the photo-protective activity, topically applied carotenoids can optimize our skin color, shifting pale and dull skin tones to a livelier appearance. Lipoid Kosmetik’s new active ingredient Carotolino is based on the unique combination of carrot root extract, carrot seed oil and beta-carotene, all united in a basis of canola oil in order to provide perfectly stabilized carotenoids.
In other news, Lipoid Kosmetik presents Jackfruit organic Herbasol, also at the show. A vegan lifestyle stands for conscious living and healthiness, but also for youth, confidence and fashion. Therefore, veganism is not only a major food trend, but it is also taking over the cosmetic industry.
Although a vegan lifestyle is extremely healthy, plant-based food lacks some important nutrients, such as creatine, an energy metabolite for skin. In order to compensate for creatine deficiency in vegan skin cells, Lipoid Kosmetik developed the cosmetic ingredient Jackfruit organic Herbasol Extract Glycerine SB. In fact, Jackfruit is popular in the vegan cuisine. Here, we show that our Jackfruit extract can also improve cellular creatine uptake into skin, and consequently complements a vegan diet.
Taken together, Jackfruit organic Herbasol Extract Glycerine SB not only symbolizes vegan lifestyle, but also supplements creatine shortage known from vegan skin. Our Jackfruit extract specifically addresses the needs of plant-based eaters, and is therefore a perfect tool for the fast-growing market of vegan skin care.
Lipoid Kosmetik also will present additional data on the botanical active Hydro-Gain. Sufficient water content in the stratum corneum is the prerequisite for healthy, appealing and non-irritated skin. The most effective strategies to reduce water loss are improving the skin’s barrier function and enhancing the skin’s water-holding capacity.
Hydro-Gain is Lipoid Kosmetik’s powerful,100% natural, COSMOS-approvedmoisturizing cocktail that strives for optimal water retention. Hydro-Gain combines moisturizing lipophilic extracts from birch bark and barbary fig oil with regenerating hydrogenated lecithin. Based on this unique combination of active substances, Hydro-Gain strengthens the skin barrier,
improves water retention, provides short- & long-term moisturization and shows deep-down hydration efficacy.
In essence, Hydro-Gain simultaneously improves both, the tightness of the lipid- and protein-based permeability barrier as well as the amount of water-binding molecules, and thereby minimizes water loss and increases skin hydration. This holistic approach to overcome dry skin makes Hydro-Gain the idea ingredient for innovative moisturizers, said the company.
