Premium Organic’s Alpin Heilmoor Extract (AHE) has won the “best in cosmetics” award with the International V-Label organization.
According to the company, the jury emphasized the “innovative sustainable sourcing approach and excellent application possibilities” of AHE. This is the third award for the multifunctional bioactive after two previously reported BSB Innovation Awards (Innovation and Environment) earlier this year.
Building on the success of APE, Premium Organic introduced a new application area: oral and dental care. The active enhances oral epithelial barrier, prevents gingivitis, and potentiates wound healing and tissue regeneration after minor injuries to the oral mucosa. It also prevents cell senescence which promotes healthy gums due to the maintenance of cell proliferation and self-renewal.
At a clinical level, AHE reportedly showed great improvement in oral hygiene by reducing tooth shade, dental plaque and halitosis. Moreover, no relevant skin, gingiva or mucosa reactions suggestive of irritation or allergy were detected.
COSMOS- and NATRUE-certified, the ingredient is optimal for multi-faceted, vegan and natural cosmetic and personal care products, especially but for darker formulations.
