Vytrus Biotech has received the bronze Best Ingredient Award 2023 at in-cosmetics Korea for its Photobiome microbiota photoprotector active ingredient.
The ceremony took place on 12 July at the trade show held in Seoul, South Korea, where the award was presented to the Vytrus Biotech sales team.
Photobiome is a 100% natural active ingredient from stem cells of pomegranate (Punica granatum) and cotton from desertic and semi-arid regions of the Near East and Middle East (Gossypium herbaceum).
Through a new technological platform of Phyto-Cell Fusions, Vytrus combines two plants with high antioxidant power and resistant to extreme temperatures.
In this way, Vytrus obtains a synergistic effect of prevention of skin ageing caused by the sun through photoprotection of the cutaneous microbiota.
“Photobiome opens the door to a new ingredient category of microbial antioxidants by helping skin microbiota photoprotect itself by protecting and nourishing bacteria, and modulating the release of its own natural photo-defense molecules that improves the signs of the photoageing process on the skin,” said the Barcelona firm.
