"Gatuline Skin-Repair AF offers a novel and promising strategy to fight inflammation. By focusing on the final resolution of inflammation rather than on decreasing it, chronic inflammatory skin disorders, especially those appearing with age can be durably controlled. This active ingredient will be suitable for all facial or body care products supporting inflamed, damaged or sensitive skins," said Laurie Canel, product marketing leader – Active ingredients.
Local and organic sourcing
Derived from locally sourced Cotton thistle (Onopordum acanthium), Gatuline Skin-Repair AF is an organic certified hydroglycolic extract. Its phytochemical signature (sesquitertene lactones, caffeoylquinic acid derivatives) supports its high level of efficacy.
The plants are grown in the heart of France, on a farm strongly involved with the respect of nature and biodiversity, following principles of an ecological farming method called conservation agriculture (minimum tillage, permanent soil cover with crop residues and live mulches, crop rotation and intercropping). As part of its CSR policy, Gattefossé is committed to help its partner in the development of durable agricultural practices.
