NAGASE Personal Care will start sales of Glucosyl Naringin, an anti-aging cosmetic ingredient that promotes the production of elastin, an extracellular matrix protein involved in the maintenance of skin elasticity and the formation of elastin fiber. Launch is scheduled for March 31.
Naringin is a citrus-derived flavonoid. Although it has long been highly regarded for its wide-ranging characteristics, application in cosmetics has been a challenge due to its low water solubility. HAYASHIBARA, NAGASE Group developed Glucosyl Naringin by combining glucose with naringin using enzyme technology, which significantly improved water solubility and made application for a wide range of purposes as a new plant-derived functional cosmetic ingredient possible. It was discovered that Glucosyl Naringin promotes the production of elastin and the formation of elastin fiber which something not seen in other raw materials. Elastin is involved in the maintenance of skin elasticity. Therefore, it is expected that Glucosyl Naringin will be effective in reducing wrinkles and skin sagging.
Glucosyl Naringin will be exhibited at the in-cosmetics® global Booth H10, one of the world's largest cosmetic ingredient exhibitions, scheduled to be held in Barcelona, Spain from March 31.
