As previously reported, Sederma's BB-Biont (INCI: Glycerin (and) Water (Aqua) (and) Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4) is a biomimetic peptide designed to smooth the appearance of pockmarks. The ingredient recently received the "I Feel Good Award 2022" for innovation, recognizing the company's peptide expertise, Sederma reports.
The ingredient is positioned as a gentle alternative to aesthetic medicine, improving the skin tone and surface by rebalancing the its holobiont; the holobiont is described as the supra-organism between the human body and the microbiome. BB-Biont is designed to slow the growth of Cutibacterium acnes and deconstruct its biofilm to avoid inflammatory skin damage.
