Gattefossé is focusing on red fruit for its launches at in-cosmetics 2013. The company will add cherry and cranberry waters to its Original Extracts line of vegetal waters, which now complies with the COSMOS standard.
Original Extract Cherry Bio and Original Extract Cranberry Bio are 100% certified-organic, transparent waters obtained with a novel, mild extraction process, followed by evaporation and condensation. These waters are alternative sources of water that are suitable for the formulation of organic or natural skin care, hair care, makeup and toiletries. As traditional water has been removed from the organic calculation in the COSMOS standard, formulating with these waters is an easy way to increase the percentage of overall organic material.
Original Extract Cranberry Bio (INCI: Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Water) is a 100% cranberry water containing the volatile components, trace elements and mineral salts found in the fresh fruit.
Original Extract Cherry Bio (INCI: Prunus Cerasus (Cherry) Fruit Water) is a 100% cherry water with anti-aging benefits. Tested in vitro on human cells versus distilled water, it boosts transforming growth factor ß (TGFß) synthesis with a dose-effect. Directly involved in extra cellular matrix remodeling, TGFß represents a reliable and original pathway to revitalize the skin and to successfully target wrinkle smoothing.
Antioxidants in the Skin by Roger McMullen is the first book to offer a comprehensive account of antioxidants in personal care and addresses the cellular level of human skin. A section of the book outlines the properties of several botanical extracts important in skin care and a survey of antioxidant products in skin care formulas covering various product categories.
