Vegan-friendly solution for sweet aging

Every day we receive news about Global Warming, we see images of its consequences all over the Planet, the number of both animal and plant species in danger of extinction only increases and governments are still far from promoting laws that really help stop climate change. In this framework, it is the ordinary people who work to raise awareness of the damage we are doing to the Earth, and the one that carry out significant movements to save it, emphasizing the importance of taking personal actions towards a sustainable future.

Within this ecological awareness, veganism is quickly gaining a global interest, shifting from niche to mainstream. Therefore, vegan products have extended beyond the diet, reaching even the beauty industry, and are used by consumers of all kinds.

Cosmetic formulations are starting to include more vegan and environmentally friendly alternatives to renown skin care ingredients. An example of them are retinoids - very effective anti-aging agents but with undesired side effects. Traditionally used as a skin smoothing and anti-wrinkles remedy, stevia can be considered a gentler and more natural alternative to retinoids.

Native to South America, stevia plant can also be found in other places such as the Bordeaux region, known for its incredible natural richness. This region is also the birthplace of PHENOBIO™ subcritical water technology, an extraction methodology recently incorporated to Lipotec™ Active Ingredients’ portfolio, that helps obtain eco-conscious enriched botanical extracts as it allows to recover a broad spectrum of the plant’s phytoactives without using harmful chemical solvents that may damage the environment.

In a world in which every small gesture in favor of the environment counts, eco-friendly technologies are a necessity and the only possible future. Applying the PHENOBIO™ subcritical water technology to organic stevia leaves from the Bordeaux region, STEVISSE™ advanced botanical ingredient, was created as a vegan-friendly ingredient with a retinoid-like mechanism that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles.

In vitro, it promoted an improved skin response against oxidative stress and prevented the degradation of key ECM proteins, while reducing skin inflammation. The clinical test performed showed a reduction up to 87.3% and 85.2% in wrinkle area and length respectively after 28 days of treatment, visibly attenuating the crow’s feet wrinkles and providing a younger-looking appearance.

Part of the Lipotec™ Active Ingredients’ Active Organics® inspired by nature range, STEVISSE™ advanced botanical ingredient offers a similar rejuvenating result to retinoids but without the negative side effects.

It can be incorporated into facial formulations willing to slow down the aging process, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles as well as organic and vegan formulations looking for a wrinkle reduction effect while caring for the planet.
