IFF-Lucas Meyer Cosmetics targeted anti-aging body care in its recent launch, Morpholyss (INCI: Glycerin (and) Water (aqua) (and) Nephelium Longana Seed Extract). The active is meant to reduce adipose tissue to ultimately improve the body’s shape.
Aging bodies are subject to loss of skin firmness and substance, along with “lipo-aging,”—fat gain resulting from the natural aging process, according to the company. Morpholyss addresses this to ultimately reduce fat tissue thickness while reducing thigh and waist size via the following mode of action:
- Inhibiting PAI-1;
- Reducing preadipocyte differentiation;
- Decreasing angiogenesis; and
- Limiting ECM disorganization.
Derived from longan seeds, the ingredient is recommended at 0.5-2%. It is Cosmos-registered and China-compliant.
