Restoring coral reefs and facial harmony

Posted by Bianca McCarthy, Ph.D. on 06/14/2022

Day-to-day psychological stresses have made consumers hyperaware of their physical and emotional states. In fact, when we asked consumers in the U.S. and U.K. how prolonged periods of psychological stress affected their skin, sagginess, wrinkles and dull skin were among the most common replies.

Despite compounding stress and emotional disharmony from the pandemic and other issues, the American Psychological Association reports that most consumers – around 71% – remain hopeful about their future. This is due, in part, to their adoption of various restorative rituals to offset the side effects of stress and to safeguard their well-being.

Recently, Lubrizol Life Science – Beauty (LLS Beauty) has introduced Telophi™ biotech ingredient to help consumers combat the beauty challenges that arise from stress and restore their emotional and facial harmony.

Telophi™ biotech ingredient is sourced from the extraordinary coral reef ecosystem off the Florida Keys, U.S.A. This is a region home to abundant and diverse marine life where microorganisms like Bacillus sp. play a vital role in maintaining the community’s health and harmony.

LLS Beauty scientists identified that Bacillus sp. has the unique ability to inhibit the growth of Vibrio coralliilyticus and Vibrio owensii – the main coral pathogens that cause diseases like the bleaching of coral. Indeed, when the scientists created Telophi™ biotech ingredient, they found it had an even greater protective effect against these two coral pathogens. In other words, Telophi™ biotech ingredient itself is beneficial for coral and can contribute to maintaining the harmony of the ocean.

In appreciation of the region from where the Bacillus sp. for Telophi™ biotech ingredient is sourced and to help continue to restore the ocean’s harmony, LLS Beauty has donated to the Coral Restoration Foundation in the Florida Keys, the biggest nonprofit organization dedicated to coral reef rejuvenation.
