Mibelle Biochemistry has won the in-cosmetics Asia Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Gold Award for NovoRetinTM
Mibelle Biochemistry has won the in-cosmetics Asia Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Gold Award for NovoRetinTM. The ingredient was first introduced at in-cosmetics Global in Paris earlier this year. NovoRetinTM is a plant-based retinol alternative demonstrating exceptional benefits for impure skin and strong anti-aging effects. By inhibiting CYP26 enzymes that degrade retinoic acid, NovoRetinTM is able to increase the amount of naturally occurring retinoic acid, the active form of retinol, in the skin.
Based on mastic, an aromatic resin from the bark of a tree that grows on the Greek island of Chios, NovoRetinTM is an innovative plant-based natural alternative to retinol.
Clinical studies conducted on Caucasian and Asian women showed that NovoRetinTM not only significantly increases skin elasticity and density, but also has an immediate anti-wrinkle effect. In acne-prone skin, NovoRetinTM reduces retentional lesions, such as blackheads, pore size and shininess, while increasing skin hydration at the same time.
Thus, NovoRetinTM serves as ideal natural retinol alternative for cosmetics formulations. NovoRetinTM is COSMOS and NATRUE approved.
