Symrise combats aging and stress.
* Symrise has added two groups of active ingredients derived from plant extracts to its portfolio. IBR-TCLC is based on colorless carotenoids in tomatoes, which are extracted before the tomatoes can convert them into a red pigment. IBR-CLC is also based on the extraction of colorless carotenoids, but from algae.
The activity profile of these colorless carotenoids have antioxidant, UV-protective, anti-inflammatory and anti-mutagenic properties. Having fewer double bonds makes IBR-CLC and IBR-TCLC significantly more stable than classic carotenoids. The products are suitable for use in anti-aging, UV-protection and personal care products.
Another product, IBR-dormin, has introduced a completely new approach toward maintaining youthful skin, using extracts from the bulbous plants of the genus Narcissus. IBR-dormin calms the cells, and the slower rate of division gives them more time to fully develop their protective functions. Skin that is protected and which takes more time for cell division stays younger longer. IBR-dormin is formulated for anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, personal care and after-sun products. This extract also acts as a whitening agent via yet another mechanism.
