The upgrade allows users to search by active compound.
Layn Natural Ingredients (Irvine, CA) has announced a significant upgrade to its Botanical Ingredient Library. The upgrade allows users to search by active compound. Prior to this, users would be able to filter botanical ingredients by application (human, pet, or animal agriculture), primary function (natural sweetener, health & nutrition, preservation/shelf life, etc.), and secondary function (antioxidant, brain health, healthy aging, gut health, etc.).
“With decades of extraction experience and a focus on developing standardized extracts, we understand the intricate world of natural botanicals and the diverse active compounds contained within,” said Elaine Yu, president of Layn Natural Ingredients USA, in a press release. “The unique molecular structure of each active compound helps define the technological and metabolic functions they perform. Our proprietary and precise extraction processes and rigorous testing methods help to ensure exact and standardized levels of these specific compounds. With the enhanced functionality of the Ingredient Library, visitors can readily navigate to these crucial compounds and the botanical sources they originate from. This reflects our dedication to providing our valued customers with the flexibility and precision they need to explore and source functional botanical extracts and provides another tool to help brands to make well-informed decisions.”
Layne explains that the key benefits of the Ingredient Library’s for its customers include precision searching for more targeted and precise exploration of potential formulations, in-depth information on each botanical extract such as its sourcing, functionalities, and key actives, as well as enhanced formulation guidance that facilitates the development of products tailored to specific functional needs and applications.
