Sericoside for ‘cellular reprogramming’ of skin

Givaudan Active Beauty has unveiled Sericoside, a botanical active that is designed to improve skin texture and density by reducing wrinkles, fatigue and roughness

Givaudan Active Beauty has unveiled Sericoside, a botanical active that is designed to improve skin texture and density by reducing wrinkles, fatigue and roughness. It is made by fractionation from the roots of Terminalia sericea or clusterleaf, a deciduous tree that grows in the miombo forest of Central and Southern Africa.

“Through cellular reprogramming, Sericoside acts on multiple aspects of skin regeneration, activating many endogenous resources like antioxidant defences to reduce undereye bag and dark circles while also firming the skin,” said personal care category manager Giada Maramaldi.

The company tested Sericoside at 0.5% on volunteers for a month, finding a 19.8% improvement in skin tonicity and a 16.5% fall in signs of fatigue. In addition, 45% of the panel experienced a perceptible improvement in dark circles and a reduction in the volume of under-eye bags.

Based on these results, Givaudan Active Beauty has developed a two-in-one eye-contour cream called Dream Contour. In this, Sericoside is formulated with Escin, a natural ingredient from horse chestnut, and Eliorelys from cherry tree blossoms, “to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles and restore a youthful look”.
