Givaudan takes wraps off RetiLife synthetic retinol alternative

Givaudan has launched RetiLife, said to be the first active ingredient of its kind to offer a sustainable alternative to synthetic retinol with similar anti-wrinkle efficacy.

RetiLife is made from 100% naturally sourced retinol, and as such is said to be a sustainable solution to chemically synthesised retinol.

Through the use of micro-organisms, pure retinol is produced in a natural carrier during a fermentation process from plant sugars and combined with natural antioxidants to ensure its protection, even at a very high concentration.

With 100% natural-origin content, including sunflower oil as a carrier, the composition of RetiLife avoids synthetic ingredients such as BHT/BHA or polysorbate. Its molecule is identical to its chemical counterpart.

“Throughout the years, Active Beauty has broken cosmetic boundaries by launching active ingredients that outperform competitors,” said Maurizio Volpi, President of Givaudan Fragrance & Beauty.

“With the launch of RetiLife, a unique hero cosmetic biotech innovation, we focus on creating consumer-preferred products that leverage our capabilities in line with our purpose.”

RetiLife will be introduced during in-cosmetics Global taking place in Barcelona on 28-30 March.
