Naolys introduces Unwind Sacred lotus and Serene Skin Sage

14-Apr-2022

During InCosmetics Global last week in Paris, Naolys, specialist in plant cell culture presented two active ingredients providing skin well-being: Unwind Sacred lotus and Serene Skin Sage

Launched in June 2021, Unwind Sacred lotus is made of Sacred lotus (nelumbo nucifera) active plant cells, the Indian or sacred lotus that symbolises regeneration and enlightenment.

Unwind Sacred lotus will decrease consequences of stress in skin to get a more radiant skin.

De-stress

Indeed Unwind Sacred lotus has a general relaxing effect on the skin, acting on vital factors in the skin’s well-being (neuromediators and a neurohormones) that transmit or decrease stress in the skin and decrease the effects that stress may induce such as irritation and oxidation.

The sacred lotus active cells have the following effects at the cellular level in the epidermis:

  • relaxing, by modulating the release of melatonin and 3 neuromediators: Substance P, CGRP and acetylcholine
  • soothing, by decreasing the release of 3 inflammation mediators
  • antioxidant, by decreasing oxidative stress (the formation of free radicals)

As a result, a clinical study carried out on 20 women aged 25 to 65 years-old showed an overall improvement in skin tone in terms of radiance (+28%), luminosity (+26%), and homogeneity (+19%) after 28 days of treatment (2 applications/day).

All tests were carried out with a concentration of 0.5% (20% cells in 80% plant glycerine).

Unwind Sacred lotus is not allergenic, preservative free, and can be used in any type of skincare (face care and body care - cream, lotion, serum) or colour cosmetics (foundation, BB cream, etc.) in any type of formulation, liquid or solid.

Unwind Sacred lotus suits any type of skin - Cosmos approvals and ISO 16128 certificates for all liquid forms available on request.

Launched in April 2022, Serene Skin Sage is made of whole plant cells of sage (salvia officinalis), a famous European medicinal and fragrant species, used in tradictional medicines since Antiquity. Serene Skin Sage will enhance the skin barrier function to get a more radiant skin.

Fortress skin

As the epidermis contains different types of defense systems, Serene Skin Sage boosts three aspects of the skin barrier: the physical barrier, by reinforcing the corneous layer; the chemical barrier by rebalancing the antimicrobial arsenal, and the immune-modulatory barrier by reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Therefore It provides the following effects on the epidermis:

  • Regenerating and restructuring: through increased cell renewal – increased KI67, loricrin and synthesis of lipids (ceramides and free fatty acids)
  • Protective: due to increased expression of three anti-microbial peptides (LL-37,Betadefensin 2 and psoriasin)
  • Balancing: through regulation of the microbial balance in the skin microbiota
  • Soothing: thanks to a decrease in TNF-alpha and IL1 alpha

As a result, a clinical study carried out on 20 women from 20 to 65 years-old showed an overall improvement in skin tone in terms of radiance (+30%), homogeneity (+21%) and redness (-26%), after 28 days of treatment (two applications a day).

Serene Skin Sage is not allergenic, preservative free, and can be used in any type of formulation from skincare - daycreams, daily treatments, essence and serums, masks, etc. - to make-up applications - foundation, primer, BB creams, eye contour, pressed powder, etc.) in any type of formulation, liquid or solid.
