Natural active for all ages and skin tones
Givaudan Active Beauty has launched Mangixyl, a powerful microbiome-friendly cosmetic ingredient with proven efficacy targeting oily skin through sebum regulation.
Created from responsibly sourced mango leaves and designed with inclusive beauty in mind, this sustainable innovation encapsulates Givaudan's Company Purpose of ‘creating for happier, healthier lives with love for nature’.
The mango leaves are sourced in collaboration with the Association Bendia, based in the village of Koro, Burkina Faso, in the heart of West Africa. Run by volunteers, this women-led initiative empowers women to find employment by matching them with suitable job opportunities in the leaf-harvesting process. After harvesting, the mango leaves undergo a green fractionation process to produce Mangixyl.
This fully natural, microbiome-friendly active ingredient regulates sebum production (down to 15.9% after one month depending on complexion) to relieve the discomfort caused by oily skin – a widespread concern for consumers around the world. Givaudan's double-blind tests versus placebo studies, encompassing three different skin ethnicities (African, Asian and Caucasian) have also shown a 49.5% improvement in sebum quality. Mangixyl is a universal, genderless ingredient that is suitable for all age groups and skin tones.
