Mitochondria and their influence on the skin: a major research topic at SILAB

Depending on their state of health, the mitochondria will affect the future outcome of cells and tissues. They are viewed as energy factories that enable cells to carry out their vital biological functions. They therefore dynamically adapt their size, shape and distribution within the cell. These organelles result from the equilibrium between the opposing processes of mitochondrial fission and fusion.

SILAB manufactures its cell cultures in situ

 Friday 12 June 2015

Friday, June 5, 2015 - Saint-Viance, Corrèze

The manufacturer of natural active ingredients for the cosmetic industry is inaugurating its production unit dedicated to biotechnologies; this will be the sixth inauguration organized by the company since it was founded 30 years ago.

These new industrial facilities, which represent an investment of €5 million (with self-financing), have been built upstream of the three current production lines dedicated to cosmetic active ingredients. They will be reserved exclusively for large-scale cell culturing, for yeasts and micro-algae for example. Over the years, SILAB’s historic understanding of the plant world has been supplemented by unique expertise related to the production and use of unicellular organisms made using biotechnologies. This strong strategic approach, launched approximately ten years ago, offers practical solutions to consumers’ changing needs, market demand and legislation on naturalness, efficacy and safety. Yeasts and micro-algae are environmentally friendly natural raw materials that respect biodiversity. Rich in active molecules of interest, they are then used by the company as raw materials to manufacture its purified active ingredients that have been proven safe.
