PhytoGaia calls STGaia “the first of its kind in the market.”
PhytoGaia (Staten Island, NY) will highlight its latest tocotrienol-based ingredients at the SupplySide West trade show, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2022, in Las Vegas (Booth #7325). One new ingredients is STGaia, a combination of squalene and tocotrienol complex.
PhytoGaia calls STGaia “the first of its kind in the market.” The company says, “STGaia is a new and novel synergistic combo of natural squalene and tocotrienol complex…specifically developed for oral and topical skin beauty (skin nutrition and antiaging).”
Squalene, derived from shark liver, is already a popular ingredient in topical cosmetic products. The combination with tocotrienols is especially beneficial, as tocotrienols have “significant” science demonstrating skin nutrition and antiaging properties, the firm says.
“While squalene and tocotrienols are used widely and individually in topical and oral cosmetic products, they are not in a natural synergistic combination yet,” the company’s press release states. “As such, STGaia is the first natural plant-based extract with these two synergistic phytonutrients together as a complex.”
PhytoGaia’s tocotrienols are extracted from sustainably sourced palm fruits without the use of solvents or chemicals. They are available in a variety of forms, including oil suspension, water-dispersible powder, and a self-emulsifying liquid suspension.
