Vytrus unveils plant exosomes for skin & hair care rich in Exosomic Peptides™

News
June 18, 2024

Exosomes, also known as Ectosomes or Small Extracellular Vesicles (sEVs), are naturally secreted by cells and surrounded by a lipid membrane. These vesicles contain crucial biological components such as DNA, RNA, proteins, and various bioactive compounds.

Contrary to the growing interest in synthetic or biomimetic exosomes, which are engineered to mimic natural exosome functions but differ structurally, Vytrus Biotech focuses on natural plant exosomes structurally intact. Their similarity to mammalian exosomes allows them to effectively penetrate human cells, facilitating Cross-kingdom communication, while also enabling their customization to meet specific cosmetic needs.

Vytrus Biotech envisions exosomes as “natural biological communicators”, essential in transmitting vital biological information. In cosmetics, they provide numerous benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects, improved aging, immunomodulatory properties, enhanced healing and hydration, synthesis of key extracellular matrix proteins (collagen, elastin), skin protection, microbiota modulation, regeneration, and skin homeostasis.

In its aim of advancing the latest cosmetic science, Vytrus’ research has led to the discovery of Exosomic Peptides™ within these plant exosomes, introducing a new cosmetic ingredient that offers significant anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-wrinkle benefits.

Through its biotechnology platforms, Vytrus has effectively produced and characterized real plant exosomes from Curcuma longa and Centella asiatica plant stem cell cultures, obtaining a high exosome concentration vs traditional plant sources reaching levels of billions of exosomes/ml. Curcuma longa exosomes have very interesting applications in the improvement of skin hydration and regeneration, as well as the hair density increase and delay of hair loss. Whereas Centella asiatica has the potential to encapsulate and protect compounds of interest such as growth factors, proteins, and peptides.

Baolift™: Your Skin Workout

News
April 15, 2024

Vytrus has created a 100% natural ingredient that activates the molecular mechanisms of exercise in the skin, improving muscle tone for a lifted skin appearance.

This innovative product has been selected as a nominee for the Innovation Awards at in-cosmetics Global 2024, the premier international event for personal care ingredients. It will be featured by the Vytrus technical team at their booth, 2F58 in New Hall 2 next to the Innovation Zone, from April 16-18 in Paris (France).

Leveraging advanced plant biotechnology, BAOLIFT™ is a pioneering a new approach to skincare by simulating a fitness regimen at a cellular level, enhancing skin’s molecular mechanisms to deliver an efficient V-lifting effect and a rejuvenated appearance. By mirroring the benefits of a physical workout, BAOLIFT™ targets the enhancement of skin resilience and vitality, offering users a path to ‘Fit-Skin’ through a unique cosmetic solution.

The Workout Factor: a new biological approach in the skin well-ageing

Exercise transforms our bodies improving muscle tone and enhances the physical performance and our well-being as we age. Imagine if similar benefits could be achieved for your skin, solely through cosmetics.

Vytrus has developed a pioneering approach to skincare by mimicking a physical exercise for the facial skin, based on understanding the coordinated exercise response involving the exercise secretome: the Workout Factor. This is characterized as the key axis to harness the biochemistry of exercise and help simultaneously stimulate epidermal and muscular workout factors, promoting enhanced communication through the Skin-Fascia-Muscle axis. This new biological axis is a bidirectional communication network where the skin cells activate muscle cells, which in turn transfer exercise benefits to the skin through the Fascia (the interchanger).

BAOLIFT™ is a 100% natural active ingredient from the stem cells of baobab (Adansonia digitata). Originated in Africa, baobab tree stands out for its mechanical resistance, long life and high nutritional value. Considered as as a superfood in sports and wellbeing due to its substantial calcium and quality protein content.

This active represents a significant leap forward in the integration of biotechnology and fitness-inspired skincare, offering  cosmetic formulators new pathways to formulate firming, strengthening and anti-sagging formulations for face, eye contour and body care with a sustainable solution based on plant biotechnology:

  • Products for a fit & shaped skin
  • Formulations to reduce under eye bags
  • Strengthening & toning formulas to reduce sagging
  • V-lifting treatments

In a significant step towards greater Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and diversity, Vytrus has launched its diversity plan through the Next Diversitat Program, supported by the European Union’s Next Generation funds. The company, known for its prominent role in the cosmetics industry, aims to go beyond its traditional business operations by actively engaging with and contributing to the community it coexists with.

Recently, Vytrus fulfilled one of its key social commitments by evolving its CSR and ESG (Environment, Social Responsibility, and Corporate Governance) project. This evolution is designed to prepare the company to face current and future challenges and respond to the growing demands of society. Thanks to the Next Diversitat and Empresa Program, in collaboration with the Catalan Association of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (PIMEC) and the Catalan Entities of Social Action (ECAS), Vytrus has established a Diversity Plan in partnership with the social entity Prohabitatge.

Prohabitatge, an organization committed to ensuring the right to housing and promoting residential inclusion, has become a strategic ally for Vytrus in its quest to actively contribute to social commitment for the health and well-being of people. This demonstrates how the company not only focuses on its role in the cosmetics industry but also embraces social commitment in the broader community.

The newly established Diversity Plan marks a crucial milestone in raising awareness and managing diversity within the Vytrus organization. This plan will not only guide the integration of new individuals into the team but also focus on inclusion and address the diverse needs of individuals, positioned as one of the fundamental pillars upon which the company bases its corporate social responsibility.

Last November, following the official signing of the Diversity Plan, Vytrus conducted comprehensive training for the entire team on diversity within the company. The session, led by Lluís Mas, Coordinator of the Transversal Projects Area of ProHabitatge, addressed fundamental aspects of a diversity project, how it is implemented, and its objectives. These include ensuring equal treatment and opportunities, integrating diversity management in a cross-cutting manner, promoting the inclusion of individuals belonging to vulnerable groups, and adapting internal and external communication from a perspective of respect and recognition of diversity. Additionally, the company’s Diversity Management Committee has been established, and a designated person has been appointed, with the voluntary participation of Vytrus’ human team.

With this ambitious Diversity Plan, Vytrus reaffirms its commitment not only to excellence in the cosmetics industry but also to building an inclusive and socially responsible company.

Vytrus received the I Feel Good Best Formulation Award 2023 for its active ingredient Photobiome™

News
September 19, 2023
Vytrus Biotech, the company specializing in active ingredients derived from plant stem cells, has received the award for the best formulation of the year 2023 at the I Feel Good tradeshow for its latest formulation "SUNRISE CLOUDS", which contains the active ingredient PHOTOBIOME™, the microbiota's photoprotector.

The active ingredient has been awarded for its innovation  at the Best Formulation Awards 2023 at the French trade fair I Feel Good, the national trade fair for personal care ingredients in France. The awards ceremony took place on Tuesday, September 19th at the fair held in Paris, France, where the award was presented to the Vytrus Biotech sales team.

After its accolade at  in-cosmetics Korea Best Ingredient Award 2023, the BSB Innovation Awards, I Feel Good Awards Best Formulation 2023 and being among the top 10 finalists in the world at the in-cosmetics Global Fair Innovation Awards last March, this recognition for Photobiome™ once again reinforces its effectiveness, innovation and scientific level among the latest innovations launched on the market globally.

The new active ingredient Photobiome™ opens the door to a new category of Microbial Antioxidants by helping our skin’s microbiota to photoprotect itself, protecting and nourishing bacteria, modulating the release of their own natural photodefense molecules that improve the signs of the photoaging process in the skin.

The new Sun-Microbiota-Skin axis

Vytrus has been researching in the field of skin microbiota for 10 years and has discovered metabolic pathways for applications such as acne, biological deodorant, interaction with the brain and pleasure hormones, as well as skin aging linked to the aging of the bacterial populations that inhabit our outermost skin layer.

Now Vytrus unveils with Photobiome™ its latest scientific advances in the field of microbiota and describes a new biological approach:  the Sun-Microbiota-Skin axis, elucidating the important role of the microbiota in relation to the effects of solar radiation on the skin, either for or to the detriment of skin tissue. The active ingredient combats skin photoaging due to excessive sun exposure by photoprotecting the skin microbiota.

The story of an innovation inspired by nature

Photobiome is a 100% natural active ingredient from pomegranate stem cells (Punica granatum) and cotton from desert and semi-arid regions of the Near and Middle East (Gossypium herbaceum). Through a new biotechnological platform for cell fusions, Vytrus combines two plants with high antioxidant power and resistant to extreme temperatures. In this way, Vytrus obtains a synergistic effect of preventing skin ageing caused by the sun by photoprotecting the skin microbiota.

Biotechnology crosses frontiers in sun care and healthy aging

Photobiome represents a new paradigm in the sun care and good ageing markets and a step forward and a scientific breakthrough in the field of microbiota. This new category of biotechnology-based active ingredients offers cosmetic formulas new ways to protect and repair skin photodamage with a sustainable solution based on plant biotechnology:

  • Preventive and Treating Antioxidant Formulations
  • Photoaging treatment: products for wrinkles (crow’s feet, nasolabials, eye contour)
  • Preventive and repairing sun formulas
  • Treatments to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation
