Givaudan: A natural active ingredient to protect the skin from digital stress

To protect the skin from digital stress, Givaudan Active Beauty has sourced a gardenia fruit extract from China. Acting as a natural shield, it prevents the blue light emitted by screens from disrupting the skin’s melatonin production cycle.

Dubbed Synchronight, this new active ingredient comes from an extract of dried fruit of gardenia, sourced in the Guangxi region, in China. Designed to protect the skin, it acts as a shield against digital stress, in particular the blue light emitted by electronic devices. Thus protecting the skin against external aggressions linked to today’s digital lifestyles, it allows melatonin to play its natural role in regulating the sleep-wake cycle.

To illustrate the formulation possibilities linked to Synchronight, Givaudan has designed a night cream named, “My Blue Guard High Performance.”

Synchronight, which is activated by the microbiome, stimulates skin rejuvenation and preserves the natural skin melatonin release cycle, resulting in younger skin and better sleep,” explains Givaudan in a statement.

Developed at Givaudan’s Green Fractionation Centre of Excellence in Avignon, France, this new active ingredient is obtained using the NaDES technology [1] patented by Naturex (a company which is now part of Givaudan) that allows the extraction of some phytochemicals that are not always fully soluble in lipid or water phases.

Our accomplished scientific team in skin research and microbiomics identified a unique opportunity to bring this ingredient to life. Creating a natural ingredient with the strength to fight the effects of digital stress and improve sleep quality is a turning point for innovation in the beauty space today. We look forward to collaborating with our customers to create new meaningful beauty products that bring moments of delight throughout the day and night,” says Laurent Bourdeau, Head of Givaudan Active Beauty.
