Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection, clay-vectorised HA for skin perfection

Ct Givaudan Schweiz Ag 04 25 Lead

Givaudan Active Beauty creates Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection, redefining hyaluronic acid (HA) for skin perfection.

Givaudan Active Beauty reinvents hyaluronic acid with the launch of Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection, a sustainable and patented vectorized complex of bentonite clay and high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid.

Crafted by white biotechnology and powered by a modification of the electrostatic charges at hyaluronic acid molecules' surface, the triple-action ingredient accesses the skin’s deep layers via an electrical attraction to provide well-aging benefits, long-lasting hydration, and mattifying effects.

Hyaluronic acid is perceived as the gold ingredient for skin care, leading the beauty market as the hero molecule most mentioned and requested by consumers when talking about innovation, trends, and efficacy1. However, while consumers are aware that hyaluronic acid can penetrate the skin, they may not know that high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which offers the greatest hydration benefits, does not spontaneously penetrate the skin2.

Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection complex changes this paradigm by proving HMW hyaluronic acid that can reach deep epidermal layers, which previously seemed impossible!

Amandine Scandolera, head of biological evaluation for Active Beauty, said:

Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection is an exclusive combination of hyaluronic acid and bentonite clay, inspired from ionophoresis3. Thanks to a patented and proprietary process, bentonite clay can be activated to efficiently entrap molecules of HMW hyaluronic acid in the interstitial space of specific lamellar structures. Hyaluronic acid molecules will thus benefit from an electrical attraction from the skin’s deep layers to a depth of 75 microns.

Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection completes the range of hyaluronic acid solutions for beauty brands due to its impressive in-depth skin-perfecting properties. The ingredient’s efficacy is supported by clinical tests such as:

  • Long-lasting hydration (more than 24 hr in just one application), a benefit that significantly smoothens the skin;
  • Well-aging, enabling a decrease of fine lines in the crow’s feet area by 27.3% after one month; and
  • A mattifying effect with a significant reduction of skin’s shininess by 27.4%.

Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection not only demonstrated long-term benefits after prolonged use of the product (28 days) but also showed significant well-aging and mattifying benefits after just one application. In addition to these skin-perfecting benefits, with both of its constituents recognized for their textural properties, Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection also acts as a sensory booster, bringing softness to the formula through its satin feel.

Would you like to give it a try? Our Active Beauty team has specially formulated an inspiring concept, S3D® STEP UP, to highlight the benefits of two ingredients, Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection and Neoporyl™.
