France-based ID Bio has launched a new range of organic natural extracts that have been developed using a system of titration to determine the exact composition of the ingredients.

The new TitrExtract line comprises four ingredients which have all been 100 percent certified by ECOCERT and have been bibliographically analysed according to individual molecules or molecule families.

The company says that by developing the ingredients using the titration system it has been able to ensure the precise reproducibility of the ingredients, ensuring both product quality and efficacy.

Currently the line up includes a red vine extract that has been titrated in flavonoids, a ginseng extract titrated in saponosides expressed as ginsenosides, a marshmallow extract titrated in a pectic substance expressed as neutral carbohydrates and uronic acid, together with a spearmint extract titrated in carvone.

Building a comprehensive product portfolio

Company sales manager Oliver Fournier told ComseticsDesign-Europe that the current portfolio is expected to be developed on a yearly basis, with new titrated ingredients aimed at developing an extensive choice of products and combinations.

Ginseng was chosen as one of the key extracts for its revitalizing qualities and the company says the ingredient could be used in shaving fluid, day creams, tonic shower gels, capillary hair masks or as a make-up remover.

The red vine extract targets skin care formulations due to its ability to regulate and stabilise collagen production and the recommended applications are to treat red skin conditions, tonifying gel, stringent scrub, eye contour cream and fluid formulations for legs.

Spearmint of antioxidant and detoxifying properties

The spearmint extract has been formulated for its anti-oxidant and cellular detoxifying properties, making it ideal for repairing after sun care, gels for younger skins, detoxifying skin cleansers and protective after-shave lotions.

Finally, the marshmallow extract has been developed around its bio-adhesive and remoisturising properties, making it ideal for hand care products, cleansing gels, repairing face masks, moisturising creams, baby creams and hair conditioners.

The company rolled out the ingredients at the recent in-cosmetics event in Milan, where it was showcasing the new range as part of the Cosmetics Valley pavilion.

Last month ID Bio confirmed that it had received ISO14001 certification to recognise the environmental initiatives that it has incorporated into its manufacturing processes, saving on energy and reducing waste.
