Consumers want beauty and skincare products that not only let them feel and look better, but also protect the environment. Biotechnology offers the ideal solution to create performance ingredients while preserving the environment.
At Lubrizol Life Science, the beauty team uses natural molecules with specific cosmetic benefits that are obtained from living microorganisms not harvested from nature. The process is very safe, sustainable and generates a low amount of waste. The outcome is results-driven ingredients with low environmental impact.
For example, two recent ingredients in the LLS Biointec™ line include:
- Lumicease™ blue ingredient – Obtained from one of the most UV-resistant microorganisms, Lumicease™ blue ingredient helps prepare, protect and repair the skin from solar and artificial blue light-induced damage, minimizing the main signs of digital and photoaging.
- Cellynkage™ marine ingredient – This is an exopolysaccharide extracted from the Halomonas eurihalina microorganism to protect the cell vitality and balance that is lost during aging. It improves skin thickness, dermal density and microrelief structure (+113%) in menopausal women, for an overall rejuvenated complexion.
