If one was talking some years ago about anti-aging the general understanding was that an anti-aging product should reduce wrinkles. To fulfil today’s consumer needs a cosmetic product has to address the different causes of aging. As these consumer expectations are constantly increasing during time there is an ongoing need for new innovative raw materials, especially for active ingredients that combat the various signs of agingThis talk is intended to give an overview of products based on hyaluronic acid and peptides that combine different activities to provide a holistic concept for a better lookHyaCare® is a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid which is an effective, skin-identical anti-aging moisturizer. HyaCare®50 is a tailor made 50 kDa hyaluronic acid that shows increased permeation through the skin. Thereby its activity is optimized and it rejuvenates the skin by improving its viscoelastic properties and significantly decreasing deep wrinkles. Based on a novel innovative production method, HyaCare® Filler CL will be presented, a crosslinked hyaluronic acid which delivers an instant wrinkle-filling effect and improves skin’s appearance.Evonik’s tetrapeptides provide anti-aging, anti-inflammation or whitening properties based on skin’s own signals. The amino acid sequence of TEGO® Pep 4-17 is present in several human ECM proteins and therefore has an extremely powerful inherent anti-aging activity. TEGO® Pep 4-17 shows superior collagen, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin boosting activity and minimizes the appearance of all kinds of wrinkles and reduces skin roughness.Alongside wrinkle reduction anti-aging products claim to even skin tone. This effect can now also be achieved by another skin-derived peptide. TEGO® Pep 4-Even is the first tetrapeptide which treats hyperpigmentation. Several in vivo studies on people of different skin colors show that TEGO® Pep 4-Even is an anti-aging ingredient that can provide a radiant, even skin tone for all types of skin.
