Winnox Cosmeceutics Sdn Bhd – Scalp Biotics Technology
Hijab wearing is a common practice among Muslim populations in countries like Malaysia. Recent consumer research indicates scalp concerns arising amongst Hijab wearers, including odor, oiliness, itch, dandruff and hair thinning. In relation, a study was initiated to gain a deeper understanding of the scalp microbiome profiles of female Hijab and non-Hijab wearers, associated with potential scalp health concerns. In response, a novel resolution was developed – the Scalp Biotics Technology. This hair tonic incorporates potent prebiotics to rebalance the scalp microbiome profile of Hijab wearers, maintaining overall scalp health.
Winnox Cosmeceutics Sdn Bhd – Vitamin C Derivative and Resveratrol Hyperpigmentation Solution
Skin hyperpigmentation has been a concern of ASEAN consumers and is associated with skin imperfections and aging. The demand for anti-hyperpigmentation solutions in this market has therefore increased with the emergence of the derma segment in recent years; but the underlying root cause of skin hyperpigmentation has been under intensive research without a concrete solution as of yet. In relation, a new technical insight uncovered the presence of internalized melanin in dermal fibroblasts other than epidermal melanocytes, leading to intractable hyperpigmentation. The Vitamin C Derivative and Resveratrol Hyperpigmentation Solution was therefore developed to target this by leveraging the synergy between these ingredients – with proven in vitro, ex vivo and clinical efficacy.
