The ingredients are designed to give formulators more choice in the development of anti-aging skin care products by targeting environmental factors such as UV exposure and pollution, while also supporting cellular functions associated with the aging process.
The launches build on the existing Natrience Biofraction range, which was announced last year, and includes a Hydrator, Destresser and Brightener.
The new range is vegetable-derived, with the Protector ingredient based on flaxseed, the Antioxidizer based on soybeans and the Detoxifier being corn-derived – which means the ingredients fit the ever-growing trend for natural formulations.
Each ingredient has been developed through focusing on key cellular activity, aiming to boost skin protection and in turn promote healthier, younger-looking skin, ISP claims.
The Antioxidant ingredient focuses on the soybean extract glycine max to help preserve and invigorate enzymes that eliminate free radicals, in turn helping to maintain healthier cellular activity in the skin.
Antioxidizer, Detoxifier, Protector...
This ingredient may in turn be effective in helping in the reduction of DNA skin damage, ultimately slowing signs of photo-aging, ISP claims.
The Detoxifier ingredient is based on a soy-derived biofraction, designed to minimize markers associated with biological aging, in turn helping to cleanse unnecessary cell proteins and boost collagen production and cellular rejuvenation.
ISP says that in-vitro and ex-vitro results demonstrate that the Detoxifier may help boost skin’s metabolic activity, including expression of proteasome proteins, elimination of damaged proteins and maintenance of collagen levels.
Targeting the skin's cellular process
Likewise, the Protective ingredient is based on flaxseed extract linum usitatissimum, which also focuses in on the skin’s cellular process by optimizing cellular differentiation, helping to maintain skin elasticity and moisturization.
The Protective ingredient is said to be suitable for daily products, and also boosts cellular cohesion, resulting in an improved integrity of the stratum corneum.
ISP will be showcasing the new range of ingredients at the in-cosmetics show in Milan, Italy, from March 29 – 31. The company's stand number is G28.
