Givaudan impressed judges with its Neurophroline, an active ingredient, which is the first generation of cosmetic products that is able to block the production of cortisol. Developed from wild indigo seeds and used in Ayurvedic medicine, this active also claims to promote the release of endorphins.

The judges said the simplest factor that they judged on was whether they would incorporate this ingredient into their own brands. You can be very innovative but if nobody would use the product, it is irrelevant. We are glad the judges deemed our innovation useful and so we are happy to have won,” commented Fabrice Lefèvre, Marketing and Innovation Director for Givaudan Active Beauty.

Meanwhile, Agrimer took the top prize for Best Functional Ingredient with its Seaweed Caviar. Made from marine polysaccharides, these 3D ‘shell-less’ pearls serve as vectors for active ingredients. The beads melt on the skin without the need to remove any residue.
