The Swedish company will be using Evolva’s ‘Veri-te resveratrol’ in its Reserol supplement products, which uses a dissolvable oral film strip system to deliver functional ingredients into the body via the inside of the cheek.
Reserol is a marketed as a beauty-from-within product, claiming to boost skin elasticity, reduce age spots and wrinkle depth, and improve smoothness.
The addition of Evolva’s Verit-te ingredient is the first of further launches of additional Reserol products in the coming months. Nutrinovate distributes Reserol via two large pharmacy chains in Sweden, and says it is in talks with retail outlets in the UK as part of a planned expansion.

Developed in Sweden, FFT is the result of 10 years of research and development, says the company, and is protected by a number of global patents.
“We see Functional Film Technology as a game changer in the food supplement business. It is a perfect carrier for ingredients like Veri-te™ resveratrol, where maximising absorption is important”, Nutrinovate CEO Magnus Nillson-Val says.
“From our perspective, the range of new products is huge. Evolva will definitely be a preferred partner for our future business development projects.”
Resveratrol is a polyphenol found in several types of plants, including red grapes, blueberries, and nuts. The ingredient plays a defense mechanism role to help protect against environmental stressors, say the companies.
They assert that mounting evidence from published studies show it can also help promote healthy ageing in humans and animals.
“This published research and clinical data suggests that resveratrol can aide in healthy ageing through maintaining bone health, cardiovascular health, blood glucose control, healthy cognitive function, skin youthfulness and oral health.”
“Evolva is very pleased that Veri-te™ was chosen as the source of resveratrol for these products. we are excited to be such a central part of this innovative product,” Evolva SVP of Health & Wellness Angela Tsetsis said.
