Natural ingredients

Founded in 10993, IES Ingredients specializes in the distribution of raw materials for the cosmetics, fragrances and flavours industries, with a stronc focus on natural ingredients.

At the latest edition of the Cosmet’Agora tradeshow in Paris, IES Ingredients displayed a fresh and gentle stick with pro-aging effects thanks to the energizing benefits of the PEPHA-TIGHT microalgae extract. This action is completed in the long term by the organic extract of Edelweiss ALPAFLOR EDELWEISS CB, which reduces wrinkles by acting on glycation (In-Vivo tests on forehead, upper lip & jaw line). To perfect this moment of pleasure, the formula also includes VALVANCE Look 100 and TILAMAR PDO to obtain a moisturizing texture with a soft touch.

Formulated on an aqueous base, this stick is 100% of natural origin according to the ISO 16128 standard and the rigorous selection of ingredients (without listed preservatives) has allowed IES Ingredients to validate a criterion A test challenge (14 days, ISO 11930 standard).
