Givaudan takes on ‘maskne’

Masknyl is Givaudan Active Beauty’s answer to the skin issues associated with wearing a face mask. This is a phytoactive ingredient derived from sophorin (phytomelin) and is activated by the skin’s own microflora to address issues like redness, inflammation and hyperpigmentation. It is claimed to:

  • Visibly reduce red spots and heal skin inflammation in 24 hours (in particular where a surgical mask has been worn), by -34.2% versus placebo
  • Control and reduce hyperpigmentation and brown spots in just four days (-3.5% versus placebo)
  • Improve skin comfort and texture, with 74% of panellists saying that their skin was softer and less tight

Sophorin is a flavonoid with well-documented benefits in terms of antioxidant action, soothing and wound-healing. Hitherto, its used in cosmetics has generally been at limited dosages due to its poor solubility. Givaudan has used glycosylation to improve its bioavailability for use in Masknyl.

Givaudan has also developed Mask Tonic to reduce redness and control hyperpigmentation arising from mask-wearing. This is suitable for all skin types from three years old and is of 92% natural origin. It incorporates PrimalHyal 300 and Unitamuro H22 Green. “Application of this light emulsion provides a delicate sensation of freshness, leaving skin perfectly hydrated even when covered,” the company said.
