JD Phyto-Or 1%™ Offers Natural Active Skin Repair for Even Skin Tone

Jojoba Ct2211 Lead

Natural active ingredients continue to play an increasingly significant role in personal care and there are a variety of ingredients available to meet this need. However, there is one substance that has proven to be a game changer in this area: pure phytoene.

Phytoene is the main precursor in the biosynthesis of all carotenoids. Extracted from different sources, it can be utilized as an ingestible, preventing signs of aging from the inside out. Phytoene is designed to strengthen the body from within and affect the skin's appearance and resilience.

Jojoba Desert recognized phytoene's inherent advantages in topical application when this active sustainable substance was proven to provide impressive improvement on skin condition.

In a collaboration with renowned supplier Lycored, Jojoba Desert has created JD Phyto-Or 1%,TM a novel anti-aging and high-performing active for glowing skin, featuring both JD Jojoba oil and the concentrated phytoene.

The concentrated phytoene is extracted from non-GMO fungi in a controlled fermentation pathway, resulting in a concentrated active ingredient. This active provides exceptional benefits for skin and hair, allowing for reduced vulnerability to oxidation, as well as the prevention of oxidative stress-induced damage and inflammation stimulated by UV irradiation and pollution.

It is a clear, low-viscosity, oil-soluble yellow liquid available for a wide variety of skin care applications.

Clinical Study

A clinical study was conducted to determine the efficacy of JD Phyto-Or 1%TM in protecting and maintaining the natural hydrolipid skin barrier and evening skin tone and complexion.

The test was administered with JD Phyto-Or 1%TM in 1.5% concentration, and the clinical study included 33 females (average age 50) who applied the formulation twice per day for 28 days total.

In this test, skin tone was measured using a Mexameter® MX 18 to evaluate the Melanic index, while transepidermal water loss (TEWL) was measured with a Tewameter® and soothing effect was evaluated after irritation with a 10% lactic acid solution.

By the conclusion of the 28-day study, the results showed:

  • A 10% improvement in skin tone brightening (see table 1 and picture 2).
  • A 9% reduction in skin redness (see table 3 and picture 4).
  • A 17% improvement in TEWL (see table 5).

JD Phyto-Or 1%TM was shown to inhibit formation of melanin pathways, decrease cytokines, decrease ROS (reactive oxygen species) and the appearance of redness and brighten and illuminate the skin, thereby evening the skin tone.

JD Phyto-Or 1% TM has also been proven to protect and maintain the natural hydrolipid skin barrier, replenish the skin's antioxidant reserve and reduce skin sensitivity.

This novel anti-aging active ingredient makes a marked difference in the skin when applied on a regular basis.
