Pierre Forman, process project unit and environment manager, SILAB, and Laurie Verzeaux, scientific communication project leader, SILAB, present together the conference: “Water, a valuable resource for SILAB“.
SILAB’s core business is the extraction and purification of natural molecules. As water makes up 70% of our body and our skin, it is quite naturally that SILAB uses it as its principal extraction solvent for its natural cosmetic active ingredients. Precious, sometimes rare but renewable, still vulnerable, water holds all SILAB’s attention. Diversification of activities and optimization of process contribute to limit water consumption while a rigorous water control maintains its quality. To extend its sustainable commitments, SILAB acts beyond its own site by investing in preservation of aquatic ecosystems in its territory.

Sensory, olfactory and taste receptors, discovered in the skin a few years ago, are involved in skin regeneration. SILAB advanced research team demonstrates a modulation of these receptors with aging. Reviving sensory receptors into the skin is thus an innovative strategy to boost cutaneous regeneration weakened during aging. Natural molecules extracted from a co-product, the coconut flour, display in vitro and in vivo benefits. Molecular identification and in silico experimentations were then carried out to decipher the mechanism of action of the resulting natural active ingredient, SENSORIALINE®, a sensory awakening for regenerated skin.
