Givaudan and Nikko Chemicals were awarded gold at in-cosmetics Asia “Innovation Zone Best Ingredient” in the active and functional category respectively.
Givaudan’s Revivyl awarded as ’Best Active Ingredient’
Following a Gold award at in-cosmetics Latin America in September, Givaudan Active Beauty continues to impress industry experts with its active ingredient Revivyl. The holistic skin renewal accelerator was awarded Gold for the Best Innovation Ingredient in the ‘Active Ingredient’ category at in-cosmetics Asia in Bangkok.
“This award is a clear demonstration to the beauty market that our Applied and Advanced Research on skin microbiome is avant-gardist. It also confirms our strong willingness to constantly bring innovation and inspiration to our customers and help them develop new exciting products,” said Laurent Bourdeau, Head of Active Beauty.
Revivyl is a naturally sourced multifunctional active ingredient that reactivates the production of new skin while protecting the skin’s microbiome. The efficacy has been demonstrated through four full clinical trials and its microbiome protection property has been established with the analysis of 24 billion DNA data, claims Givaudan.
“We are extremely honoured to receive this award for an active answering two fast growing trends in our industry: skin microbiome and ageing populations. This industry award celebrates our capabilities to craft new active ingredients from nature and to leverage them through exclusive in-house technologies,” added Fabrice Lefèvre, Innovation and Marketing Director.
Nikko Chemicals’ wins with Aron Nt-‐Z
Besides Givaudan, Nikko Chemicals received the Gold Award in the “Best Functional Ingredient” category for its new absorbent powder Aron Nt-‐Z.
Aron Nt—Z is an absorbent polymer that has specifically designed for use in skin care. “It holds water more than 20 times of its dry weight and forms various cosmetic products such as viscous emulsion and gel,” claims Nikko Chemicals. When applied on the skin the polymer releases the water thus adding “a unique sensation of watery touch with an elastomer-like finish.”
According to Nikko Chemicals, the key benefits to end‐users are the combination of watery touch with a matte, elastomer‐like finish. Aron Nt-‐Z is therefore particularly interesting for improving the aesthetics of water‐in‐oil formulas that might have a heavy texture due to high load of chemical sunscreens and oils.
