Lipotec adds two new ingredients to the actismart range
Barcelona-based Lipotec has added two new naturally-derived ingredients to its actismart range, tapping into the trend for exotic botanicals from different parts of the world.

The portfolio of ingredients was launched as a means of bringing international ingredients to formulators wanting to add effective ingredients that give a strong selling point for brands.

The initial focus for the product range was on botanical extracts from the Asia Pacific region, but the two new ingredient offerings now focus on two oil-based botanical extracts from trees found in distinct parts of the world.

Tapping into the properties of miseltoe

The first launch is derived from an ancient botanical worshipped by druids – mistletoe. Actismart Miseltoe taps into the ancient medicinal knowledge that believes the plant has skin protection and wound healing properties, not to mention a cure for a variety of illnesses.

Digging deeper on research into the plant’s qualities, the development team at Lipotec says that the extract it has produced is characterised by polyphenols, which use oleuropein as a standard to restore damaged skin.

The skin repair process is achieved through the increase of type IV collagen through the skin’s main basement membrane component, and in ECM components after damage, all serving to accelerate regeneration.

Citrus tree from Yuzu

This type of citrus tree is one of the most cold resistant in the species, and in Japanese tradition, it is believed that taking a yuzu bath during the winter solstice warms the body and fights cold, as well as serving to heal chapped skin.

Lipotec’s Actismart Yuzu is also characterised by polyphenols and depends on naringenin as a standard to boost key skin lipids and proteins to boost barrier protection and help prevent damaging effects from the cold, as well as dehydration.

The development team at Lipotec expects to add further to the portfolio of Actismart ingredients in the future in an effort to bring botanical extracts from all corners of the world that serve to both protect and beautify the skin.
