The ingredient, Tego Turmerone, is a distilled fraction of turmeric oil extracted from the root of the Indian spice plant.

Originally released a couple of years ago when Evonik Industries introduced a new range of plant extracts, the company claims it is now re-launching the active as it has new data to support its use.

According to the company, the extract has significant anti-oxidant properties and can be used for a wide range of cosmetic applications.

Products designed to even skin tone and increase radiance can benefit from the extract, Evonik claimed, citing an in vitro​ study that showed the ingredient induces the cell’s own defence mechanisms against oxidative stress.

In addition, it said that an in vivo ​study showed that the ingredient in facial skin care products can reduce wrinkle appearance.

Ecocert approved

The extract has been manufactured using a molecular distillation process and the patent applied for by Evonik has been approved by Ecocert.
