Geltor has taken the wraps off Caviance, a type II collagen polypeptide offering skin rejuvenating benefits for topical beauty applications.
Vegan and cruelty-free, the California company says Caviance is said to be the first type II sturgeon collagen biodesigned for skin rejuvenation and soothing benefits.
Initial in vitro studies have shown Caviance stimulates cellular regeneration, boost six different types of collagens, offer antioxidant strength, and wound healing benefits.
"Our objective was to find a protein sequence for skin rejuvenation benefits. Inspired by nature and the evolutionary excellence of the sturgeon species, we found the specific sequence of collagen type II to be rich in signaling domains, suggesting key skin renewal benefits,” said Geltor chief technology officer and co-founder Nick Ouzounov, Ph.D.
“Caviance is a unique bioactive ingredient that has shown the desired performance factors for topical applications.”
The new ingredient is a biodesigned protein made with precision fermentation that is 100% animal-free, certified vegan and cruelty-free, and meets strict clean beauty standards.
