Two actives shortlisted for award
Vytrus Biotech has been selected as a finalist for its two new cosmetic ingredients in the category ‘Best Ingredient Award 2020’ at in-cosmetics Global.
Vytrus Biotech team launched two new active ingredients in 2020 that naturally address the care of the skin microbiota: Kannabia Sense and Deobiome Noni.
The first of its actives – Kannabia Sense – is an innovative prebiotic ingredient made from Cannabis plant stem cells that stimulates the production of oxytocin through the skin, activating the brain pleasure centres. This process, respectful with the skin microbiota, induces a better self-perception and positive emotional parameters, ending up in a healthier and prettier skin.
While Kannabia Sense represents a step ahead in Neurocosmetics, well-ageing, and skin care, the second ingredient shortlisted – Deobiome Noni – is a biological deodorant ingredient from plant stem cells that efficiently reduces body malodour while sustainably respecting the skin microbiota. The active is ready to be applied in body, axillary, foot, and scalp odour treatments (roll-on, sticks, creams…) and microbiota rebalancing formulations.
Òscar Expósito, CEO, CSO and co-founder of Vytrus Biotech, said: “I could not be happier and prouder of the great things that our team does and their contribution to the cosmetic world. It would be great to be a winner, but we are satisfied enough with this recognition to our work and passion."
These awards will be revealed and presented on 6 October at the in-cosmetics Virtual Event organised by Reed Exhibitions.
