Symrise has launched a probiotics-based ingredient expressly with the aim of providing additional protection to sensitive skin.

Called SymReboot L19, it is said to restor the skin’s instinctive defenses and helps boost the natural defense mechanism thanks to the probiotic-like action.

The ingredient launch taps into one of the most significant trends in the industry right now, which is focused on skin protection and microbiome.

Tapping into this trend, the Cosmetics Design team is holding its inaugural Cosmetics Design Summit which is a two-day programme focused entirely on microbiome and skin protection. If you are interested in learning more or even participating, please click here to find out more.

SymReboot wins a BSB prize

The ingredient has already scooped second place in the BSB Innovation awards for active ingredients category, which the Symrise development team believes is an endorsement of its claims that it can open up new horizons for probiotic-based skin care formulations.

“At Symrise, we work with the leading supplier of probiotic ingredients, the Swedish company Probi,” ​said Imke Meyer, Senior Global Product Manager Actives at Symrise.

“At the same time, we are specialists in sensitive skin and its needs. Our processed probiotic SymReboot L19 strengthens the barrier function and soothes sensitive skin.”

The ingredient’s capabilities

SymReboot has been designed to succeed in maintain the bacterial structure throughout the manufacturing process, while preserving important benefits for the skin.

According to the development team, the metabolites of the mildly heat-treated microorganisms contained in the ingredient serve to activate the skin’s natural defense mechanisms and thereby soothe the skin and strengthen the skin barrier, boosting its instinctive defenses.

According to Symrise, the ingredients has been tested and substantiated in vivo, and in an extensive series of vitro tests.
