According to the company, TEGO Arjuna S, derived from the bark of the Arjun tree improves skin resiliency & dermal density while restoring the natural sebum levels of postmenopausal skin and re-enforcing skin barrier performance.
“To the best of our knowledge, there are no 3rd party rights covering the usage of TEGO Arjuna S in cosmetic formulations," a company spokesperson told CosmeticsDesign-Europe.com
Moreover, Evonik explains that the active enhances skin nutrition by increasing skin blood microcirculation, which in turn contributes to an improved microvascular network leading to better skin nutrient supply and promotion of cellular turnover.
Tried and tested
According to the company, In vivo studies evaluated the efficacy of the active by measuring the sebum content, the blood microcirculation as well as the dermal density, whereby after 4 weeks of application, the skin appeared to be reshaped and less mature.
“The active has a comparable activity without influencing hormone metabolism. The distinct improvement of blood microcirculation also implies the use of this product in scalp care applications.”
Hormonal ageing can change the skin’s structure
Menopause or ‘hormonal ageing’ can change the structure and composition of the skin, as low estrogen levels result in weakening of collagen and elastin fibers. With decreased skin elasticity, the skin loses its property to extend and bounce back to the initial state, therefore the skin is thinner and becomes more fragile.
Evonik also introduced a new sustainability initiative, Move 360° at the three day event that offers its customers further insight into the company's commitment towards more eco-optimized, economically viable and socially responsible products.
