The new research broadens the efficacy and appeal of Matmarine biotech ingredient, a fermentation-based extract sustainably sourced through biotechnology from a marine microorganism. In the latest round of in vivo testing, 31 Caucasian men applied a cream with 3% ingredient on half their face and a placebo cream on the other half twice a day for seven days. In one week, the number of pores decreased 10.5% and skin hydration increased 12.4%. Furthermore, the ingredient also resulted in an immediate moisturizing effect that lasted the entire day.
Matmarine biotech ingredient decreases MC5-R levels and delays sebocyte differentiation, according to Lubrizol. In different ethnicities, it helps improve the appearance of combination and oily skin while keeping it hydrated. Applied in a BB cream, the biotechnological ingredient also showed an immediate mattifying effect that was maintained the entire day.
The fact that Matmarine biotech ingredient helps reduce excess sebum on the skin, while preventing skin dehydration, makes it an ideal solution for the care of oily and acne prone skin, according to Lubrizol.
