Carotolino – Blue Light Protection and a Vivid Look 
 
Natural and artificial blue light damages skin and induces premature aging. Nature’s answer to blue light are carotenoids, which shield blue light and protect against blue-light induced oxidative stress. Besides the photo-protective activity, topically applied carotenoids can optimize our skin color, shifting pale and dull skin tones to a more lively appearance.
 
Lipoid Kosmetik’s new active ingredient Carotolino is based on the unique combination of carrot root extract, carrot seed oil and β-carotene, all united in a basis of canola oil in order to provide perfectly stabilized carotenoids. Carotolino shows efficacy in:
    • shielding blue light
    • neutralizing blue light-induced ROS
    • and supporting a healthy and vivid skin color
In essence, Carotolino incorporates the best of carrots including stabilized carotenoids. It reduces blue light-induced skin damage while at the same time adds a vivid look. This makes our botanical active a trendy ingredient that synergistically targets the protection and liveliness of modern skin.

Hydro-Gain – The Barrier and Hydration Booster
Sufficient water content in the stratum corneum is the prerequisite for healthy, appealing and non-irritated skin. The most effective strategies to reduce water loss are improving the skin’s barrier function and enhancing the skin’s water-holding capacity.
 
Hydro-Gain is Lipoid Kosmetik’s powerful,100% natural, COSMOS-approved moisturizing cocktail that strives for optimal water retention. Hydro-Gain combines moisturizing lipophilic extracts from birch bark and barbary fig oil with regenerating hydrogenated lecithin. Based on this unique combination of active substances, Hydro-Gain:
    • strengthens the skin barrier
    • improves water retention
    • provides short- & long-term moisturization
    • shows deep-down hydration efficacy.
In essence, Hydro-Gain simultaneously improves both, the tightness of the lipid- and protein-based permeability barrier as well as the amount of water-binding molecules, and thereby minimizes water loss and increases skin hydration. This holistic approach to overcome dry skin makes Hydro-Gain the perfect ingredient for innovative moisturizers.

Jackfruit Pro – Vegan Food for Vegan Skin Care 
 
A vegan lifestyle stands for conscious living and healthiness, but also for youth, confidence and fashion. Therefore, veganism is not only a major food trend, but it is also taking over the cosmetic industry.
 
Although a vegan lifestyle is extremely healthy, plant-based food lacks some important nutrients, such as creatine, an energy metabolite for skin. In order to compensate for creatine deficiency in skin cells of vegans, Lipoid Kosmetik developed the cosmetic ingredient Jackfruit Pro. In fact, Jackfruit is popular in the vegan cuisine. Here, we show that our Jackfruit extract can also improve cellular creatine uptake into skin, and consequently complements a vegan diet.
 
Taken together, Jackfruit Pro not only symbolizes vegan lifestyle, but also supplements creatine shortage known from skin of vegans. Our Jackfruit extract specifically addresses the needs of plant-based eaters and is therefore a perfect tool for the fast-growing market of vegan skin care.

Cranberry Pro - Natural Biofilm Control
Biofilms are complex habitats of microorganisms on human skin. Microbes can hide inside the protective matrix of biofilms, where they have a reduced vulnerability to antimicrobial agents. This fact challenges the cosmetic industry to identify selective biofilm balancer, which specifically weaken biofilms of troublemaking bacteria, and support biofilms of advantageous microbes.
 
With Cranberry Pro, Lipoid Kosmetik presents a novel cosmetic tool that targets cutaneous biofilms. Cranberry Pro has anti-adhesive and anti-biofilm forming activity, but is non-biocidal. It selectively represses biofilm formation of disadvantageous microorganisms, while promoting beneficial microorganisms in biofilms. Thereby, Cranberry Pro controls biofilms naturally.
 
Cranberry Pro can be used as stand-alone active ingredient to control cutaneous biofilms, or complementary to antimicrobial agents.

Vinegar is a highly beneficial, multi-functional ingredient known for centuries. In particular our hair profits immensely from vinegar, as it is pH-balancing and naturally cleansing. Therefore, vinegar-based ingredients are optimally suitable to fight damaged, dull and unruly hair.
 
Lipoid Kosmetik developed an exquisite selection of superior, COSMOS-approved VNGR+ extracts, which reduce hair damage, while leaving smooth hair with a stunning shine. VNGR+ are extracts from plant material with vinegar and glycerin as extraction system. The extraction with both, vinegar and glycerin, creates powerful, virtually alcohol-free tinctures. Being optimized for formulation compatibility, performance and efficacy, VNGR+ extracts are the ideal addition for the daily hair perfection.

Cider VNGR+ is an extract from mallow flowers and nettle herbs with Swiss organic apple cider vinegar and glycerin.

Rice VNGR+ is an extract from chrysanthemum flowers and polygonum roots with rice vinegar and glycerin.
