Silab’s new active protects the skin against pollution

Silab joins the fight to protect the skin against pollution. The French company specialising in the creation, manufacture and marketing of active ingredients dedicated to the cosmetics and dermocosmetics industry is launching Mitokinyl, an anti-pollution natural active ingredient derived from a yeast species (Pichia heedii) and rich in glucomannans and able to combat harmful environmental stress via a unique regulation pathway.

Silab Research is the first laboratory to identify the central role of mitokines in an optimum antipollution strategy. Thanks to a sophisticated intracellular communication mechanism, these mediators, released by mitochondria under the effects of pollution, connect the skin to its environment and initiate an appropriate anti-stress response,” says the company in a release.

In an in vitro study on reconstructed epidermis, Mitokinyl showed its ability to regulate the two major biological pathways of pollutant stress response: the synthesis of mitokines (prohibitines) is normalized and the aryl-hydrocarbon receptor is deactivated.

Furthermore, the new patented active forms an effective, stratified, functional barrier. Eventually, in vivo studies have demonstrated its ability to optimize complexion tone and radiance in Caucasian and Asian volunteers.

Mitokinyl is recommended in all antipollution facial and body skincare products at a concentration of 1 to 3%. It complies with European, U.S., Japanese and Chinese cosmetic regulations.

Victoria’s Secret or the failure of a conservative positioning?

In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to (...)
