When Technology enhances Nature.

Latest products
As a forerunner, SILAB is recognized worldwide as a specialist in the engineering of natural active ingredients and in the development of advanced phytotensors for the cosmetic industry. Driven by its high scientific expertise, SILAB launches several products each year to answer the current and future needs of its customers.

REGENIXIR®, regeneration and cellular interconnectivity

REGENIXIR® is a regenerating anti-aging active ingredient of biotechnological origin. By restoring the capacity of aged fibroblasts to interact with their environment, it enables a transversal action on the interconnectivity of the cutaneous, vascular and immune systems, which is weakened during aging.

The quality of the skin is improved: wrinkles and under-eye circles are reduced, vascularization defects are attenuated and the complexion radiance is revived. With its global action, REGENIXIR® thus favors the rapid regeneration of mature skin.


PEPTILIUM®, the excellence of natural biopeptides for an anti-aging effect
PEPTILIUM® is a global anti-aging active ingredient composed of natural biopeptides purified to 95%, obtained from a co-product of a superfruit, the cranberry. Combining high efficacy, transversality and safety, the active ingredient targets the three compartments of the skin: it strengthens the epidermal barrier function and boosts complexion radiance; it improves the quality of the dermal-epidermal junction and of the dermal matrix for an anti-wrinkle action. Compared to retinol, PEPTILIUM® has a more intense and more rapid efficacy while having no side effects.

EXFOLCATIVE®, boosts natural peeling

Obtained from an organic supply chain of nopal (also called prickly pear) flowers, EXFOLACTIVE® reactivates the endogenous processes of desquamation, weakened by aging. Based on an approach in vitro and in vivo, it boosts the natural exfoliation capacity of the skin and promotes cell renewal for an optimal barrier function. The skin is smoothed and hydrated, the complexion is more radiant and uniform. Acne scar marks are also visibly attenuated. EXFOLACTIVE® can be used in all daily face and body care for its gentle and effective exfoliating action.
