Lipoid Kosmetik AG teams up with MyMicrobiome to bring clarity to ‘Microbiome-friendly’ cosmetic developments

Lipoid Kosmetik is proud to announce that three of its cosmetic active ingredients got acknowledged with the quality seal ‘microbiome-friendly’ according to the MyMicrobiome Standard 18.10.
The scientifically tested and certified microbiome-friendly products from Lipoid Kosmetik are: 

  • Yogurtolin®: Prebiotic and Refreshing Care for Sensitive Skin
  • Cranberry Pro: Natural Biofilm Control
  • us NeoTMWidely Applicable Antimicrobial System 

The number of cosmetic products with microbiome claims is raising and consumers start recognizing the importance of the skin microbiome. Consumers, however, often lack the scientific knowledge to make purchasing decisions. Hence, a uniform standard or label that gives consumers orientation and trust was eagerly awaited.
MyMicrobiome 18.10 is the world’s first standard that certifies microbiome-friendly products. It is based on a scientific and independent examination of the products’ influence on all aspects of the skin microbiome including microbial balance, diversity, and growth behaviour. The standard uses a conclusive and transparent seal of approval bringing clarity to consumers.

Yogurtolin® - Prebiotic & Refreshing Care for Sensitive Skin
Yogurt, as a probiotic food, is a success story well known to consumers – it is healthy, nutritious and tasty. Lipoid Kosmetik has rediscovered yoghurt’s beneficial properties and associations for sensitive skin.

Lipoid Kosmetik’s Yogurtolin® shows the following properties:
• Prebiotic functionality
• Strengthening and regeneration of the skin barrier
• Calming and soothing of sensitive skin
• Instant sensation of skin refreshment
Taken together, yogurt itself already triggers positive consumer associations. These are the perfect starting point for cosmetic concepts. Our new active ingredient Yogurtolin® is a powerful prebiotic yogurt concentrate derived from Swiss milk. It is perfectly suited for sensitive skin care to restore the microbial and physical skin barrier, and sooth and refresh irritated skin.

PhytoCodine® - Natural Messenger Peptides to Reprogram Skin Structure
A person’s perceived age is determined by physical traits on face and neck. These traits mostly reflect the integrity of the extracellular matrix, which provides structure, homogeneity and elasticity to skin.
Matrikines are dermal messenger peptides that instruct skin cells to reorganize and build-up the extracellular matrix. So far, synthetic matrikines have been used in cosmetics. Now, Lipoid Kosmetik investigated and isolated – for the first time – natural matrikine-like peptides from cedar nuts and presents them in a novel anti-aging concentrate: PhytoCodine®. PhytoCodine® mimics the activity of matrikines that naturally occur in our skin, and has the following benefits:
Renewal of extracellular matrix
• Improvement of dermal surface & texture
• Support of facial density & elasticity
• Rejuvenating effect of mature skin
Taken together, PhytoCodine® is the world’s first concentrate of plant-derived, natural matrikine-like peptides. It reprograms fibroblasts to build-up extracellular matrix components characteristic of younger looking skin and thereby, PhytoCodine® directly contributes to a person’s perceived age.

Carotolino - Blue Light Protection and a Vivid Look
La lumière bleue naturelle et artificielle abîme la peau et induit le vieillissement prématuré. Les caroténoïdes sont la réponse protectrice de la nature au stress oxydatif induit par la lumière bleue. En plus de leur activité photo protective, les caroténoïdes appliqués en topique optimisent la carnation, transformant un teint terne et pâle en une bonne mine.
Le nouvel ingrédient de Lipoid Kosmetik Carotolino est basé sur une association unique d’extrait de carotte, huile de carotte et beta carotene, sur un support d’huile de canola, afin de stabiliser les caroténoïdes. Carotolino est efficace pour:
  • Protéger de la lumière bleue
  • Neutraliser les espèces réactives de l’oxygène induites par la lumière bleue.
  • Apporter un teint éclatant, en bonne santé.

En résumé, Carotolino contient le meilleur des carottes, dont des caroténoïdes stabilisés. Il réduit les dommages cutanés induits par la lumière bleue et dans le même temps apporte un teint éclatant. Notre actif végétal est un ingrédient tendance qui cible la protection et la vitalité des peaux confrontées à l’environnement moderne.

Hydro-Gain – The Barrier and Hydration Booster
Pour avoir une jolie peau, saine et sans irritations une quantité suffisante d’eau dans le stratum corneum est nécessaire. Les stratégies les plus efficaces pour réduire la perte insensible en eau sont d’améliorer la fonction barrière et d’augmenter la capacité de la peau à retenir l’eau.
Hydro-Gain est le cocktail humidifiant 100% naturel, approuvé Cosmos de Lipoid Kosmetik qui vise à une rétention d’eau optimale. Hydro-Gain combine des extraits lipophiles d’écorce de bouleau blanc et d’huile de figue de Barbarie avec de la lécithine hydrogénée régénérante.
Ce mélange unique de substances actives:
  • renforce la barrière cutanée
  • améliore l’hygroscopie à court et à long terme
  • apporte une hydratation en profondeur efficace
En résumé, Hydro-Gain renforce simultanément la barrière hydrolipidique et augmente la quantité de molécules qui retiennent l’eau. L’actif minimise la perte insensible en eau et augmente l’hydratation de la peau.

Jackfruit Pro – Vegan Food for Vegan Skin
Le mode de vie vegan est fondé sur le bien être et la conscience de la vie mais il est également synonyme de jeunesse, mode et confiance en soi. Le véganisme n’est plus seulement une tendance majeure de l’alimentation mais aussi plus récemment de l’industrie cosmétique.

Bien que le mode de vie vegan soit extrêmement sain, l’alimentation stricte à base de fruits et légumes ne permet pas l’apport de certains nutriments essentiels tels que la créatine, un metabolite qui apporte de l’énergie à la peau. Pour compenser ce manque, Lipoid Kosmetik a développé l’extrait de Jackfruit Pro. Le fruit du jacquier est déjà largement utilisé dans la cuisine vegan. Nous avons montré que notre extrait de jacquier améliore l’absorption de la créatine par la peau et vient donc compléter un regime vegan.

En résumé, le Jackfruit ne symbolise pas seulement le style de vie vegan, il pallie également la carence en créatine dans les peaux des vegans. Notre extrait de jacquier répond tout particulièrement aux besoins des personnes se nourrissant exclusivement de plantes. En conséquence il est l’ingrédient ideal pour le marché croissant des cosmétiques vegan.

De la Canneberge pour votre peau
Les biofilms sont des habitats complexes de microorganismes sur la peau humaine. Les microbes peuvent se cacher à l’intérieur de la matrice protectrice des biofilms, où ils ont une vulnérabilité réduite aux agents antimicrobiens. Ce fait incite l’industrie cosmétique à identifier et sélectionner des composés phytochimiques équilibrants qui affaiblissent spécifiquement les biofilms de bactéries à l’origine de troubles et qui soutiennent les biofilms de microbes présentant des avantages.
Avec son extrait de Cranberry Pro, Lipoid Kosmetik présente un nouvel outil cosmétique qui cible les biofilms cutanés. L’extrait exerce une activité anti-adhésive et anti-biofilm mais n’est pas biocide. Il réprime de manière sélective la formation de biofilms de microorganismes défavorables, tout en favorisant les microorganismes bénéfiques. Ainsi cet extrait de canneberge bio équilibre naturellement le microbiome de la peau. 
L’extrait de Cranberry Pro peut être utilisé comme ingrédient actif autonome pour contrôler les biofilms cutanés, ou comme complément d’agent antimicrobiens.

Optimisés pour leur performance et leur efficacité, les extraits VNGR+ sont les partenaires idéaux des soins quotidiens du cheveu.

Natipide® Eco – Natural Carrier for Cosmetic Actives
L’encapsulation d’actifs est de plus en plus utilisée dans les soins dermo-cosmétiques, répondant au besoin de produits multifonctionnels toujours plus sûrs et plus performants.

Natipide Eco est un nouveau système de transport innovant pour actifs cosmétiques hydrophiles, fabriqué exclusivement à partir de matières premières naturelles. La formule concentrée pré-liposomale permet la réalisation de liposomes stables de 200nm, simplement en la dispersant dans l’eau.
