Roquette Beauté has launched a 100% plant-based soothing ingredient for skin and scalp designed to preserve the diversity of the skin microbiome.
Unveiled at in-cosmetics Global in Paris, Beauté by Roquette DE 006 (INCI Dextrin) is COSMOS and NATRUE approved, as well as suitable for vegans.
Tests found Beauté by Roquette DE 006 reduces the pro-inflammatory marker (IL-1 alpha) and transepidermal water loss (TEWL) induced by chemical and mechanical aggression.
The new ingredient is also claimed to significantly reduce redness induced by chemical aggression, as well as soothe skin and scalps and preserve the diversity of the skin microflora.
“The addition of Beauté by Roquette DE 006 to our product range is a great demonstration of our pledge to bring innovative plant-based solutions to the cosmetics industry that meet consumers expectations for safer products with the right balance of nature and technology,” said Bénédicte Courel, Roquette Beauté general manager.
“For us, sustainable beauty is all about skin health and nutrition. We focus on high-quality, versatile and sustainable plant-based ingredients and develop multifunctional solutions providing high performance and an amazing sensorial experience,” she added.
