Givaudan Active Beauty has released new clinical data for Vetivyne, their vetiver inspired skin youth booster, and Yogurtene Balance, a yogurt powder and prebiotic combination. According to the manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients both actives contribute to “the beauty and well-being of consumers.”
Rich in yogurt constituents and prebiotics supporting the skin friendly bacteria, Yogurtene Balance was tested clinically in a rinse-off application (bar soap). Givaudan Active Beauty researchers discovered the active has a positive impact on skin microbiota composition after only 15 minutes by modifying it towards the typical composition of a younger skin microbiota. The assay revealed also a significant 2.6 times increase of skin hydration versus placebo.
Givaudan’s researchers performed a new clinical test with Vetivyne, an anti-ageing active upcycled from vetiver roots. The results revealed that Vetivyne avoids dysbiosis by preserving the Actinobacteria abundance, which is typically decreasing when the skin is ageing, therefore protecting the skin microbiome composition over time.
A recent Givaudan Active Beauty’s worldwide consumers study shows that consumers are familiar with the importance of the skin microbiome . Interestingly, 69% of them are aware that there are microorganisms on the human skin and know that it’s important to keep the balance for skin health. Consumers have increased their knowledge about skin microorganisms and they are also willing to try cosmetic products with skin microflora concept. 70% of them identified microbiome associated products to health and wellness benefits which is a consumer quest that we observe globally.
“Skin microbiome is one of the fastest growing trends in the beauty industry as it is a major scientific new area. This is why we keep investigating new benefits from active ingredients and connect them to the consumers’ expectations. Balancing the skin microbiota is essential to get a healthy and beautiful skin and protecting its composition is crucial,” said Mathias Fleury, Category Manager Actives.
