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.

Recognitions and Certificates

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.

About the active

Sculpting curves at will while improving the skin structure.

The natural active SARCOSLIM RE-SHAPE™ is an active ingredient that introduces the concept of Liposculture: reducing your fat while using intercellular energy released on fat burning to tighten and reaffirm tissue.

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

Global lipolytic effect
Protection, repair and synthesis of dermal fibers
Activation of cell metabolism
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity

The concept

It consists of is a skin remodeling system that helps reduce fat while taking advantage of intercellular energy to tighten and firm the issue. The skin acquires a younger and firmer aspect from the ‘inside’.

The plant

Sarcocapnos crassifolia is an endemic small plant found in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, very rare and unknown. It inhabits fissures in rocks up to 2,100m in height, and it is known as the ‘Rockbreaker’ because it is the first to colonize the naked rocks, being an extremophile plant: it has a high resistance to heat, cold and drought. Since it is a plant close to extinction, the only possibility to work with it is through plant cell cultures. Sarcocapnos has a unique metabolic profile and Vytrus has found the way to use this plant power to create a new skin remodeling system.

Plants use this fat burning (mobilization) signals under specific conditions (when seeds have to germinate, or also for storage on leaved when there is a lack of water under dry conditions). Vytrus applies this mechanism of action to cosmetics.

Applications


Reduction of rebel volumes and anti-cellulite treatments

Anti-eye bags and double chin treatments

About the active

Anti-stress plant molecules to improve your skin well-being through a mindfulness effect.

TURMERIA ZEN™ is a natural active with great regenerating properties to fight the harmful effects of stress on the skin. It improves skin hydration and wrinkles on stressed profiles thanks to the capacities of the Turmeric plant

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

Billion-level concentration of exosomes with applications in the improvement of skin hydration and regeneration
Neutralization of stress-related inflammation
High wound healing properties and anti-stress wrinkle efficacy
Highly skin hydration effect
Dermal structure & cutaneous function protection

The concept

Our emotions have a direct effect on our skin. Stress, tiredness or lack of sleep can cause several problems: our immune system is disturbed, making the skin more vulnerable and causing inflammation and dehydration; more wrinkles appear while the existing ones become deeper. There is a loss of elasticity, a delay in wound healing, damage to skin structure and a decrease in barrier function.

Stress has an impact on skin and general appearance that goes from dryness or wrinkles to more serious skin conditions. Vytrus has developed an active that works on the harmful effects of stress on the skin and improve skin health in stressed profiles.

The plant

The Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a tropical and subtropical plant characterized by the existence of very ramified, cylindrical and orange rhizomes, modified roots that act as storage and resistance organs. They grow endlessly and have excellent regenerative properties.

Curcuma longa is one of the most studied plants in biomedicine, having a huge potential, with more than 230 different compounds described, more than 400 pre-clinic assays and more than 3.000 publications sowing its multiple properties (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antimicrobial, DNA protecting, etc.).

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.
