NEW MICROBIAL ANTIOXIDANT

FIGHTING MICROBIAL-INDUCED PHOTOAGEING

IMPROVING SKIN TONE, FIRMNESS, ELASTICITY AND WRINKLES

About the active

Helping your microbiota photoprotect itself to counterattack skin photodamage.

PHOTOBIOME™ is a prebiotic active from plant stem cells that stimulates the skin bacteria to release its own natural photo-defense molecules to photoprotect itself and fight the skin photoageing process.

Mechanism of action

The new Sun-Microbiota-Skin axis
A new category of Microbial Antioxidant
New microbiota pathway to fight the skin photoageing

The concept

The interaction between sun radiation and microbiota can either have a positive or detrimental impact on our skin health and appearance.

Vytrus unveils a new role of skin microbiota in photoageing under the concept of the Photobiome Factor, which involves a certain bacteria community characterized by its capacity to synthesize and release certain molecular components metabolized by the interaction of the microbiota with solar radiation.

The active PHOTOBIOME counteracts and protects the microbiota and the skin cells from the photo-oxidative stress of harming sun radiation and make the Photobiome Factor bring beneficial molecules to the skin cells

The plant

The plant origin is compound of stem cell cultures of Pomegranate and Cotton. The Pomegranate culture is rich in selective cell membrane lipids (main ones: phospholipids, glycolipids, glycerides and free fatty acids). The cell culture is also rich in its polyphenol fraction (plant chromophores), especially ellagic acid as a precursor of urolithins. The Cotton culture is a cell lysate rich in protective cellular factors including a sophisticated cocktail of plant chromophores and antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and photoprotective polyphenols such as gentisic, salicylic, p-coumaric, transferulic, caffeic, and kaempferol acids, quercetin and rutin. The two plant cell cultures have also been enriched with two components of plant origin (sugars) that play a key role as potent protectors and strengtheners of microbial cell membranes.

VITAMIN D ENRICHED SKIN

DEWY & DEEPLY HYDRATED SKIN

A NEW D-APPROACH FOR SUN CARE

About the active

Optimizing vitamin D topically for a turgent, radiant, and luminous skin.

NECTARIA LITHOPS™ is an active ingredient that biophysically optimizes the skin microenvironment and vitamin D levels on the skin and brings a new concept, the D-Skin. This is a deeply hydrated and dewy skin, more strenghtened, revitalized, and volumized.

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

Biophysically optimizing the vitamin D synthesis on the skin
Increasing hydration & water reserves in skin deepest layers
Strong spatial organization of cell membranes
Improving skin microcirculation & oxygenation

The concept

The concept of D-Skin begins with a biophysical mechanism of action: an active ingredient that optimizes the skin microenvironment and improves the water level of the skin deepest layers by having a vitamin D enriched skin. This approach increases skin dewiness and cheeks' volume, improves oxygenation, microcirculation, the tone, and the texture of the skin.

Thanks to the optimization of vitamin D levels, we achieve a D-Skin: Dewy, Deeply hydrated, D-lighted, a D-Approach for Sun Care, Vitamin D enriched.

Deeply hydrated and structured skin that shines from the inside out!

The plant

Lithops pseudotruncatella, a succulent plant native to the deserts of southern Africa, known as “Living Stones”, is specialized in managing water, space, and light to survive in very extreme conditions.

A very long-lived plant in the most extreme climate: it can live up to 95 years!

To maintain healthy cells and water levels during periods of extreme drought, this plant uses a secret weapon: the structuring of sugars. This structuring together with a peculiar metabolism allows Lithops to capture the light necessary for its photosynthesis without compromising its water balance.

Applications


Hydrating, densifying & structuring formulations

Volume, luminosity and dermal filler applications

Night treatments to improve skin tone & texture

Sun care: vitamin D enrichment, after-sun repairing formulations

PHOTO-PROTECTION AGAINST SOLAR RADIATION

BIO-BASED PROTECTION AGAINST PHOTO-INDUCED AGEING

BROAD SPECTRUM PROTECTION

About the active

Defensive molecules to protect the skin from global sun radiation.

ARABIAN COTTON™ is an active enriched in defensive plant molecules that protect and repair cell structures against sun damage. It provides photoprotection against UV, IR, and VIS radiation, and fights against photo-ageing with a broad-spectrum antioxidant effect.

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

Photoprotection effect
Enhancement of cell viability
ECM boosting activity
Modulation of inflammatory response in Human Epidermal Progenitor Cells

The concept

Photoinduced aging or photoaging is the result of an accumulation of damage (photo damage) that modifies the cutaneous appearance to a greater or lesser extent.

The most recent trend in photoprotection is to study the existence of a complementary process, whereby the natural photobiological compounds (ARABIAN COTTON™) would show the ability to act on the photodynamic targets (as secondary filters), protecting the cell metabolism and inhibiting inflammatory and degenerative processes whose result is known as photoinduced aging.

The plant

Gossypium herbaceum, the Arabian Cotton, is an extremophile native plant from semi-arid regions of sub Saharan Africa and Arabia.

Due to the hard environmental conditions, Arabian Cotton has developed a great diversity of defensive molecules (phenols and flavonoids) that help the plant cell to protect and repair its structures against sun damage.

Applications
