Evolva, a biotechnology firm from the Basel Area, is launching a line of active ingredients for the personal care industry. Evolva will be presenting the two active ingredients resveratrol and L-arabinose at the in-cosmetics trade fair for manufacturers of ingredients and personal care products, which is taking place March 28-30 in Barcelona.
With its Responsible Care program, the ingredients manufacturer is looking to tap into the personal care industry for the first time, further details of which can be found in a press release. “The entire team is excited about introducing Evolva’s Responsible Care concept to the personal care industry, thereby addressing a new and interesting market segment for us”, comments Christian Wichert, CEO of Evolva, in the press release.
The concept is based around the two ingredients Juneo and Larally. The former is a natural resveratrol of the highest purity. The plant substance, which is produced through a fermentation process, has a rejuvenating and antioxidant effect. It is therefore an option for new body care products with a focus on areas such as oxidative stress, skin aging and hair protection, while also ensuring environmental compatibility.
The naturally occurring simple sugar Larally could play a key role in influencing and maintaining the balance of the skin's microbiome, with scientific studies having empirically proven this effect. At present, a patent is pending for Larally. Both products enable manufacturers of personal care applications to create novel and sustainable consumer products capable of “delivering benefits perfectly in line with today’s mindful consumer expectations”. Customers will find Evolva at booth AH94 of the in-cosmetics trade fair.
