Vytrus, winner of Cosmetorium Awards 2018

October 2, 2018

Vytrus Biotech takes first place in the 2018 Cosmetorium Awards, which were awarded during the Cosmetorium trade fair, organized by the Spanish Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SEQC), last September 26 in Barcelona.

Vytrus was chosen as the winner from among 10 previously selected finalists. The contest rewarded innovation in the formulation of finished products, where ingredients, textures, claims and packaging were evaluated.

Vytrus presented the formula “Perfect Touch, Skin rebalancing and Vitalizing Serum”, which features the company’s latest ingredient: QUORA NONI: an active ingredient made from stem cells of the Noni plant, which hacks the bacterial communication mechanism to protect the skin’s microbiome and balance it. The active, made with highly innovative and sustainable technology, presents a new mechanism of action against acne. Perfect Touch serum protects the skin against microbiota imbalances and gives it a healthy and impurity-free appearance, tightening pores and fading redness. Perfect Touch is made following a sophisticated strategy: more natural, more intelligent and more respectful of the skin and the environment.

The Cosmetorium fair, held in Barcelona, brings together the main national players in the sector, experts in the formulation, manufacture and distribution of cosmetic products, and one of its objectives is to encourage the advancement of cosmetic science and technology in our country. The awards competition sought to support the efforts and the most innovative ideas in cosmetic formulation of the exhibiting companies.

Vytrus was also selected, out of more than 600 applicants, to present a paper at the prestigious IFSCC (International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists) congress, which took place last September in Munich. The paper, also on the QUORA NONI active, was presented by the company’s scientific director, CEO and co-founder, Dr. Oscar Expósito.

During 2017-2018 Vytrus has been winner and finalist of several national and international awards, of which the first prize for the active CAPILIA LONGA PPF, best hair ingredient in the Beauty Industry Awards 2017, and its position as one of the 10 finalists in the prestigious Innovation Zone Awards 2018 of the In Cosmetics fair, with the active QUORA NONI PRCF.
