The nutricosmetic ingredients support collagen production and address dark spots on skin.
French ingredients supplier Activ’Inside (Bordeaux, France) is introducing two new beauty ingredients at its Booth #6014 at the SupplySide West trade show, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2022, in Las Vegas. The new ingredients are Skinax2 and Belight.
Skinax2 is the company’s first nutricosmetic ingredient designed to improve the body’s natural collagen production for improved skin glow and elasticity. It comprises grape flavonol monomers, bioactive superoxide dismutase (SOD), coated vitamin C, and zinc “to deliver a synergist blast of antiaging and collagen-boosting potential,” the firm’s press release states. The company says Skinax2 stands out because “while most nutricosmetic ingredients focus on secondary antioxidants as a main defense for the skin, Skinax2 takes things a step further by also introducing primary antioxidants for a more holistic source of skin protection.”
Belight is also a nutricosmetic ingredient, this one developed for addressing dark spots on the skin. “Human trials found that the synergistic combination of grape monomers, licorice extract, vitamin C, and grape viniferin improved melanin regulation in as little as 10 days,” the press release states. “Dermatologists evaluating Belight found that it was able to efficaciously reduce dark spots related to age, sun exposure, and pregnancy.”
Activ’Inside will also promote its clinically studied brain health ingredient Memophenol at SupplySide West. The ingredient has been shown to restore memory, boost concentration, extend mental endurance, and boost overall cognitive performance.
