The anti-aging segment is expected to lead growth, expanding 6.5% through 2025, generating demand for well-aging technologies. The report has one caveat, however: consumer perception of ingredients can be negatively harmed if illegitimate claims are attached to them. Marketers beware, do your homework! Further the idea of anti- aging, which is a very negative, needs to go into the archives. Aging well needs to be the spotlight! We have put up a couple blogs many months ago, that you may find of interest, here are the links: https://www.privatelabelskincareflorida.com/blog/2019/2/6/aging-beautifully-fight-it-or-embrace-it : next: and finely: https://www.privatelabelskincareflorida.com/blog/2019/2/13/part-3-aging-beautifully-changing-fighting-and-creating-and-embracing.
Meanwhile, the development and application of ingredient technology is being reshaped by trends that have emerged amid the pandemic, many of which will last well beyond the end of the crisis.
Plant-based extracts have seen a 30% increase in the last few months! Consumers have seen the results with self-care during this pandemic and want a bit of luxury in their life. Plant-based ingredients are the focus of most of our R&D here at Private Label Skincare Florida.
We are mid-development on color refreshing shampoo and conditioners, that will change forever, the way we think about our hair coloring options. We are working to get these new shampoos and conditioner out both in solid and liquid forms. The first new “Red” totally plant-based may prove to be the best natural color ever produced. In the next few weeks, we should have the formulas set. Like our Purple Shampoo and conditioner, which has rave reviews, we will be adding many colors to our line in both solid and liquid forms.
Well-aging & Acne Fighting Inside Out
Sabinsa (Manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients) has released the results of its first human clinical study on the anti-acne benefits of LactoSporin, the probiotic metabolite derived from its probiotic LactoSpore probiotic. A second published study, in vitro, reportedly demonstrated the anti-aging potential of this topical ingredient. The company has concluded that LactoSporin is appropriate for skincare applications. This may very well be the answer to the “Maskne” Link: https://www.privatelabelskincareflorida.com/blog/2020/10/13/maskne problems consumers are very well aware of.
The first study was conducted as a randomized, open-label, comparative study in 64 human volunteers with mild to moderate acne. The research reportedly demonstrated the efficacy of LactoSporin 2% w/w cream in reducing the severity of acne in human volunteers in as little as three days, with the effects comparable to benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel. The three-week study measured improvement in skin condition based on a dermatologist’s visual assessment and instrumental measurements of acne spots. According to the company, notable improvement in all the assessed parameters was observed in both the LactoSporin and benzoyl peroxide groups.
LactoSporin also spurred a notable decrease in sebaceous secretion. It was also found to be stable at an acidic pH and temperature range of 70°-90°C, with antimicrobial activity against various pathogenic bacteria, including Cutibacterium acnes.
Finally, the cream was found to be safe and non-irritant in a repeated patch test conducted in 25 healthy individuals, prior to the anti-acne study.
LactoSporin also reportedly prevented hyaluronic acid fragmentation, a leading cause of skin moisture loss, by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme hyaluronidase. The ingredient may keep the skin moisturized and firm due to increased expression of transforming growth factor-beta and hyaluronan synthase in skin fibroblasts.
A New Sugar-derived Fiber
The development of Jojoba Desert’s (Manufacturer) JD Hydro Boost began when Technion researchers performed an enzymatic process on sugar found in oranges, transforming it into an edible fiber with unique properties relevant to beauty. The resulting material was a polysaccharide and an oligosaccharide with unique functional features, according to the supplier.
The fiber penetrates the epidermal layers of the skin, aids in the rejuvenation of skin cells and promotes the activation of collagen secretion. Consisting of 80% low molecular weight (average 700 Da), material, repeated clinical and ex-vivo studies have demonstrated the fiber’s ability to penetrate the epidermal layers of the skin, promoting the activation of the extra-cellular-matrix mechanism, reformation and secretion of collagen-1.
To produce JD Hydro Boost, the company uses cane sugar. The material provides a deep moisturization effect, aiding in the repair of skin cells, reduction of wrinkles and balancing of the skin microbiome. It is appropriate for leave-on applications such as face/body creams, gels, masks, ampoules, and patches, as well as rinse-off solutions, including dry scalp shampoos or moisturizing body washes.
JD Hydro-Boost is INCI- and Chinese-INCI-registered and a COSMOS-approved formula (having the combination of fiber and sugars, in one ingredient). It is also non-GMO and vegan.
With these innovations also comes a plethora of other incredible advances, so stay tuned for more parts to this blog.
