April 17, 2018 - In-cosmetics Global exhibition, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
During the in-cosmetics 2018 exhibition, SILAB, leader in the engineering of cosmetic natural active ingredients, received the 3rd prize of the « Innovation Zone - Best Ingredient Award », organized by Reed Exhibition, for its innovative active ingredient ECOBIOTYS®.
Bio-inspired by the regulating capacity of Nectarobiota®, the floral nectar microbiota, ECOBIOTYS® is resulting from a SILAB’s approach which is unprecedented in the cosmetic industry: use the microbiota of plants in order to develop an active ingredient able to act on the skin microbiota.
Obtained from the yeast Metschnikowia reukaufii, isolated from the nectar of the porcelain flower Hoya carnosa, ECOBIOTYS® specifically rebalances the microbiota of mature skin by reinforcing the immune and mechanical barriers of the skin and acting on the distribution of bacterial communities. The quality of the skin barrier is thereby improved and the complexion is enhanced.
Awarded by a panel of worldwide experts from the cosmetic industry, this prize distinguishes the development of a new active principle that combines innovation and substantial benefits for the end-users.
