Greentech has won an award in China for its Hebelys anti-ageing active ingredient.
The French company received a Ringier Technology Innovation Award, one of the most recognized awards in the active cosmetic ingredient industry in China.
Hebelys, designed to address the skincare needs of women aged over 50, is made from a ferment of
Sphingomonas sp., a golden extremophilic microorganism which is able to survive in stressful environment due to a high metabolic plasticity.
Greentech says Hebelys tackles the root of skin aging, by limiting oxidative stress and cell senescence pathways leading to the formation of senescent “zombie” cells.
Furthermore, it says, Hebelys, rejuvenates dermal matrisome, “promoting a healthier cellular environment”.
The Ringier Awards recognize innovative and promising active ingredients for the Chinese market.
They are evaluated by a jury on four criteria: efficacy/scientific data, safety, cost-effectiveness and sustainability.
