Title: Complementary Polysaccharides for Skin Care
  • Article

Unipex Innovations has introduced a biotech line of exotic polysaccharides from French Polynesia. Exossine includes the environmentally-friendly Exo-H and Exo-T that are said to complement each other.

Exo-H (INCI: Water (aqua) (and) butylene glycol (and) alteromonas exopolysaccharide extract) restores the natural hydration process. According to the company, the active maintains an optimal barrier function and hydration due to its action on natural factors and lipid synthesis. Exo-T (INCI: Water (aqua) (and) butylene glycol (and) vibrio exopolysaccharide extract) organizes the epidermis structure for better skin tone. The active induces desquamation and differentiation for optimal skin regeneration and smoothness.

The two complementary actives are preservative-free, natural exopolysaccharides. They are recommended for formulation in: smoothing products, cosmeceuticals, antiaging products, dry skin care, daily maintenance products, spa care, skin repair products, anti-stress products, moisturizing care, men's products, body care and lightening treatments.
