Published: 8-Mar-2024

ICHIMARU PHARCOS Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Motosu City, Gifu Prefecture, President: Yoshihiko Ando) is thrilled to announce that our revolutionary MILLTECT, a natural active ingredient for oral care, has been honoured with the Allē Award for Most Significant Toiletries/Oral Care Active

The Allē Awards, presented by Cosmetics & Toiletries, recognise excellence in the cosmetics and toiletries industry, celebrating sustainability, multifunctionality, novelty, claims support, utility, etc.

MILLTECT (INCI: Codium Fragile Extract) is a cosmetic ingredient for oral care products of completely natural origin that focuses on biofilms formed in the oral cavity. Biofilms formed by oral se dental caries, periodontitis, and halitosis by producing acid and malodorous substances and inducing inflammation. By binding to the tooth surface, MILLTECT inhibits the adhesion of bacteria in the early stages of biofilm formation.

Synergistic effects with cetylpyridinium chloride, a typical antibacterial ingredient used in oral care products, have also been confirmed.

Ichimaru Pharcos states: "With this award, we hope to further expand sales in the global market as a cosmetic ingredient with the potential to prevent various health problems caused by the deterioration of the oral environment.

We are very grateful for the award and will take this as inspiration to develop even more innovative natural cosmetic ingredients as one of the leading manufacturers in the field."
