Clariant takes inspiration from plant hardiness with Galactinol Advanced

Clariant has unveiled Galactinol Advanced, a sugar-based skin care active inspired by the hardiness of plants.

To endure and revive from harsh conditions such as prolonged dehydration, a 'resurrection plant' produces a protective sugar called galactinol.

Clariant said this compound is essential to several intrinsic defense mechanisms to reduce damage and contribute to recovery when conditions improve.

The compounds for Galactinol Advanced are obtained from common agricultural byproducts via biocatalysis, which is a clean synthesis process that avoids toxic reagents and organic solvents. Using white biotechnology eliminates any need to harvest wild plants in order to obtain rare galactinol.

Galactinol Advanced is said to offer formulators a solution for boosting skin defense systems and strengthening skin resilience in the context of diverse care serums and creams.

It is claimed to activate antioxidant mechanisms and helps repair DNA damage, protein quality and functionality are optimized, and hydration is improved through enhanced hyaluronic acid production.

Clinical tests on photo-exposed women demonstrate that within 28 days, crows-feet area wrinkle volumes decreased by -19%, elasticity improved by +18.2% and firmness by +5.5%.

“These comeback stars of nature inspired us to bring similar properties to the skin, to mitigate the accelerated damage that can come from rising UV exposure and weather extremes,” said Alexandre Lapeyre, head of marketing & business development of Clariant Natural Ingredients. 

“Our new active successfully delivers on key resilience targets, triggered by boosting the beneficial properties of skin microbiota and human skin cell Its unique way of working on contemporary stress impacts and its eco-compatible process combine to make Galactinol Advanced a highly-relevant product contributing to sustainable beauty.”
