About the active

Unique haircare skinification approach to improve hair & scalp Tensegrity.

ELAYA RENOVA™ is a natural active that boosts hair tensegrity, an arquitecture-inspired concept which considers scalp, hair follicle, and hair shaft where all parts are interconnected and the whole hair system is revitalized with a plant strategy.

recognitions and Cetificates

Mechanism of action

Revitalizing and reinforcing the whole scalp & hair structure
Protein carbonylation prevention and protection from oxidative stress and high temperatures
Boosting whole hair structure of CMC, proteins
Delivering nutrients to hair fibers and enhancing penetration

The concept

Tensegrity is a concept inspired by arquitecture. It explains how changes applied to an area will also exert effects at a distance because everything is interconnected.

A skyscraper must have a good tensegrity (strong enough, but also flexible enough to resist the wind at high altitude). Following this analogy, a healthy hair must have a good tensegrity (strong enough, but also flexible enough to be manageable, soft, easy to comb and maintaining its natural movement).

This integral vision of tensegrity has been transferred to the hair structure, launching the new cosmetic approach of TrichoTensegrity, appealing to the importance of scalp and hair structure and its influence on hair mechanical properties and biology behavior. Hair shaft and scalp are intimately interconnected as a continuum and each part is interdependent from the others.

The plant

ELAYA RENOVA ™ is made from plant stem cells of the wild olive tree sprouts (Olea europaea var. silvestris) through the technology of Plant Cell Biofactories.

Olive trees are characterized for their resilience against drought and high temperatures, their vitality and their longevity. Specifically, this ancestral Mediterranean plant has been chosen because it is an expert in lipids maintains more genetic diversity, providing the whole hair system with a revitalizing capacity through this active.

recognitions and Cetificates

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.

recognitions and Cetificates

Mechanism of action

Odour fingerprint modulation
Microbiota protection & rebalance
Quorum Sensing inhibitors
Metabolism shift from lipids to polysaccharides

The concept

The concept of Biological Deodorant is defined by a hybrid approach based on two strategies. On the one hand, a Biological strategy: plant anti-Quorum Sensing molecules that prevent the formation of bacterial communication and unwanted biofilms involved in generating bad smell. On the other hand, a Prebiotic strategy: DEOBIOME NONI™ represents an innovative prebiotic cocktail based on sugars that modifies the metabolism of commensal microbiota of the skin from lipids to polysaccharides, avoiding the production of malodorous molecules.

The plant

DEOBIOME NONI™ is made from plant stem cells of Morinda citifrolia, known as the Noni plant, a native species from Southeast Asia (Indonesia) and Australia.

With more than 150 actives described, the Noni plant is used in more than 40 types of ailments worldwide, antitumor, anthelminthic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory, immuno-stimulant, several skin diseases, urinary tract disorders, fever, etc.

About the active

Stimulating the microbiota-skin-brain axis to feel better and look prettier.

An innovative prebiotic treatment that stimulates the skin microbiota to produce an in-situ postbiotic cocktail that stimulates the synthesis of cutaneous oxytocin. The oxytocin generated in the keratinocytes connects with the sensory neurons and communicates with the brain turning into a well-being response that ends up in a healthier, stronger and prettier appearance.

recognitions and Cetificates

Mechanism of action

Microbiota-Skin-Brain axis ignition
Positive activation of brain pleasure areas
Better self-perception and positive emotional parameters
Oxytocin like effect
Protection & balance of the microbiota

The concept

The concept of in-situ postbiotic is based on a simple fact: who better than our own commensal symbiotic microbiota to take care of our skin? The skin microbiota continuously captures nutrient elements from its surroundings, transforms them and generates an in-situ postbiotic mantle, rich in bioactive metabolites that can interact with the epidermal cells and sensory neurons nerve endings.

If you properly nourish and take care of your microbiota, it will be more in homeostasis and the in-situ postbiotic will be full of healthy and beneficial molecules for the skin.

The plant

Kannabia Sense is made from plant stem cells of Cannabis sativa, a herbaceous plant indigenous to eastern Asia, very popular for its pharmacological activities (terpenes & phenols) and psychotropic properties (cannabinoids). The plant is known to contain many compounds, amongst them tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD).

However, Vytrus Biotech centres its attention on a specific signalling lipidic fractions of the first generation of Cannabis sativa stem cells which are guaranteed and certified to be free from THC & CBD.

About the active

Quorum Quenching molecules to modulate bacteria communication and rebalance.

QUORA NONI™ is an active from plant stem cells to avoid the attack of skin harmful bacteria. It respectfully inhibits virulent biofilm formation to treat acne-prone skin, achiving microbiota rebalance and perfecting the skin surface.

recognitions and Cetificates

Mechanism of action

Anti-Quorum Sensing effect
Broad spectrum bacteriostatic & fungistatic effect
Protection & rebalance of the skin microbiota
Anti-inflammatory and no biocide action

The concept

The bacteria communication system (virulence) happens because bacteria speak with each other using signals (Quormones), forming biofilms. Plants are constantly attacked by microorganisms and they have developed several strategies to block and hack these communication signals, avoiding their organization into the virulent biofilm forms by doing a real biochemical war. They have designed a genuine and smart system to fight against microbial communication called Quorum Quenching that uses Anti-Quormones molecules.

Vytrus Biotech has created a natural active that uses these plant Anti-Quorum Sensing signals, disarming the bacteria by hacking their communication systems, just like plants do, and rebalancing the skin microbiota.

The plant

QUORA NONI™ is made from plant stem cells of Morinda citifrolia, known as the Noni plant, a native species from Southeast Asia (Indonesia) and Australia.

With more than 150 actives described, the Noni plant is used in more than 40 types of ailments worldwide, antitumor, anthelminthic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory, immuno-stimulant, several skin diseases, urinary tract disorders, fever, etc.

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.
