Posted by Bianca McCarthy, Ph.D. on 12/05/2023

Retinoids have long been the go-to solution for those seeking flawless, radiant skin. However, their side effects, including skin irritation, have been a major concern. Lubrizol Life Science Beauty (LLS Beauty) has an innovative solution that promises to revolutionize your skincare routine: Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient, offering retinoid-like benefits without irritation.

Made from organic stevia leaf extract, Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient offers a new path to beautiful, healthy skin, providing an array of retinoid-like benefits without the unwanted side effects. Recent in vitro tests have shown that Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient surpasses traditional stevia extracts in terms of antioxidant efficacy, thanks to its innovative extraction method using proprietary Phenobio™ subcritical water technology. Consumers can enjoy improved antioxidant protection for their skin, warding off damage caused by free radicals and environmental stressors.

Achieving a More Even Skin Tone

The journey to beautiful skin doesn't end with antioxidant protection and reduced inflammation. Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient evens skin tone, diminishes dark spots and enhances overall complexion homogeneity. After just 28 days of use, this advanced botanical ingredient visibly improved skin tone and minimized the appearance of dark spots.

Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient also boasts impressive anti-wrinkle results, reducing wrinkle area by up to 87.3% and wrinkle length by 85.3%. It was also found to decrease skin inflammation by a remarkable 57.8% compared to retinoic acid, offering a gentler experience akin to bakuchiol. This is fantastic news for those with sensitive skin or seeking a milder alternative to retinoids.

Sustainability Matters

Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient not only benefits the skin but also the environment. It is derived from organic stevia leaves using the innovative Phenobio™ subcritical water technology. This extraction process significantly reduces environmental harm compared to traditional methods. By eliminating hazardous chemical solvents and reducing energy and water consumption, it aligns with ECCOCERT® and COSMOS environmental standards, making it an eco-friendly choice for the conscious consumer.

Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient by Lubrizol Life Science Beauty represents a significant breakthrough in the skincare world. It offers retinoid-like benefits without irritation, evens skin tone, reduces inflammation and promotes a more youthful, radiant appearance. And for the first time, Lubrizol is also using blockchain technology to track the ingredient journey from the cultivation of the raw material (stevia leaves) to the final product delivered to the customer (Stevisse™ advanced botanical ingredient). This prevents modifications and ensures a fully transparent traceability process from field to bottle.
