Beraca unveils new natural ingredient for mature skin

Due to its high content of minerals and vitamins, the bacuri butter claims to slow down the signs of skin aging and restore the skin’s metabolic function.

Beraca took inspiration for its latest launch from a strong and ever-growing consumer trend: the quest for youthful, healthy-looking skin. Deep within the moisture-rich forests of Brazil, the company found a new solution to revitalize mature skin, which will be launched at in-cosmetics Latin America 2016 – the bacuri butter.

According to Beraca, it is a highly nourishing ingredient that increases energy production at the cellular level and delivers deep skin hydration. It is rich in minerals such as magnesium, zinc and calcium and contains vitamins D2, E and K. The ingredient is also a source of tryptophan amino acid, which, in the presence of light, is metabolized into biologically active compounds such as serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is associated with a sense of wellbeing.

"Unlike most synthetic anti-aging ingredients, the bacuri butter not only reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but acts directly on cell metabolism by improving the skin’s barrier function and reducing transepidermal water loss. The result is an energized, well nourished skin,” says Juliana Frutoso, business manager at Beraca.

Clinical trials performed in female volunteers over 45 years of age who underwent treatment for 15 days revealed a 30% improvement in the integrity of the skin barrier, an 8% reduction in transepidermal water loss and a 15% increase in skin’s moisture levels with bacuri butter at concentrations of 2% and 4%. "The tests have shown that the bacuri butter is a groundbreaking innovation for the cosmetic industry due to its multiple benefits for mature skin,” says Frutoso.

The ingredient also plays an important role in the social and economic development of the Amazon region. It is sourced from local communities that already used the bacuri pulp for the production of sweets, ice creams and juices, but discarded the seeds. By identifying the potential of the butter extracted from the bacuri seeds for the cosmetic industry, Beraca empowered the communities to turn waste into an extra source of income.
