Berkem wants to help skin to face its daily environment

Berkem, a plant extraction chemistry specialist addressing the needs of the nutrition, cosmetics and health markets, has investigated the way human skin fights environmental aggressions. On the based of these observations, the ingredients supplier has launched the “Global 24h” concept.

As a barrier between the environment and our body, skin is constantly exposed to many aggressions (UV, cold, pollution, etc.) that weaken it. All day long, the environment put a severe strain on skin, which has to permanently adapt itself. Thus the day skin faces and protects against various stresses and the night it recovers and regenerates. “Constituting the first defence line of our body, skin requires special attention and appropriate care,” explains Berkem.

To help the skin in this mission, Berkem leverages its expertise in plant extraction and its wide portfolio of polyphenol-rich actives.These powerful antioxidants are important for protecting the skin, especially against external stress, as well as for enhancing its regeneration.

Protecting and repairing

In order to exemplify how it is possible to help the skin to protect itself, Berken has presented a new concept called Global 24h at the latest Beyond Beauty Paris tradeshow. The concept combines two skin cares: one for a day protection phase and one for a night repair phase. The two products have opposite textures but complementary functions for an uninterrupted defence:

- Protect’day care: an airy and light day cream which contains the “Berkemyol Potentille” active ingredient. These stabilized potentilla polyphenols provide the skin with necessary elements to effectively fight against oxidative stress and defend itself.

- Repair’night cream: a night cream with a rich and creamy texture. “Ko’zen active ingredient is a quince leaf extract that soothes damaged skin, decreases inflammatory reactions and calms irritation. The skin is regenerated and revitalized,” claims Berkem.
