The French supplier of cosmetic actives has been doubly honored by the Chinese beauty industry by receiving two Awards in two weeks for its regenerating anti-aging active ingredient, Regenixir.

Designed to stimulate the skin’s capacity to synthesize its own “growth elixir”: Regenixir received two different prizes: the Ringier Technology Innovation Award in the Effective Ingredients category [1] and the ICIC Award in the Technology Innovation Ingredient category [2].

Brigitte Closs-Gonthier, Deputy general manager for innovation, considers that these awards are the result of Silab’s innovation strategy and investment policy (20% of sales is devoted to R&D each year): “We are very pleased to receive these two distinctions, which highlight the high level of scientific expertise in our Regenixir product. For this anti-aging active ingredient of biotechnological origin, we acquired new technological expertise through the establishment of partnerships with two prestigious international research laboratories.

For this development, Silab set up a novel modeling study made possible by the integration in-house of skills required to develop innovative vascularized models and innovative models of immune cells. The company thus demonstrated for the first time that the interconnectivity of the cutaneous, vascular and immune systems, required in the skin regeneration process, is weakened during aging. By revitalizing cellular interconnectivity, Regenixir enables the rapid and overall regeneration of mature skin.

For Silab, which achieves 60% of its sales through exports, this recognition testifies to its ability to offer comprehensive solutions that meet the needs of consumers in the global cosmetics industry.
