Sensityl is a patent-pending active cosmetic ingredient developed from microalgae in Givaudan’s Marine Biotechnology Centre of Excellence based in Brittany, France, which fuses nature and scientific expertise to offer consumers dual benefits on beauty and well-being.
According to Givaudan, Sensityl is the first of its kind ingredient to positively influence consumers’ mood after just one month of use, owing to its powerful soothing benefits.
Exploiting new neuroscience protocols, researchers have shown that volunteers using Sensityl expressed a real positive change in how they felt about their facial skin moving from negative feelings to positive ones, due to the ingredient’s soothing benefits compared to a placebo.
“Capitalising on our leading understanding of the effect of fragrances on the brain in our state-of-the-art Sensory Centre of Excellence in Ashford, Givaudan expands its research in cosmetics and well-being with the launch of Sensityl. It will revolutionise the beauty market by developing products acting on people’s mood thanks to its exceptional soothing benefits,” highlighted Laurent Bourdeau, Head of Givaudan Active Beauty.
In line with Givaudan’s sustainability approach, Sensityl also innovates responsibly thanks to state-of-the-art biotechnological processes that preserve resources.
“We are very proud of this unique cosmetic breakthrough originating from our research on marine biotechnology, one of the most innovative sustainability pillars of Active Beauty. It reflects our deep willingness to offer our customers not only new, but also natural and sustainable products that meet consumers’ needs,” said Maurizio Volpi, President of Givaudan’s Fragrance Division.
