Triple action from skin's surface to deep epidermal layers with an exclusive and innovative clay-vectorised high molecular weight biotech HA
Givaudan Active Beauty reinvents hyaluronic acid with the launch of Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection, a sustainable and patented vectorised complex of bentonite clay and high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid (HA). Crafted by white biotechnology and powered by a modification of the electrostatic charges at HA molecule’s surface, the triple-action ingredient accesses the skin’s deep layers via electrical attraction to provide well-ageing benefits, long-lasting hydration and mattifying effects.
Reaching the deep epidermal layers
Hyaluronic acid is perceived as the gold standard for skincare, leading the beauty market as the hero molecule most mentioned and requested by consumers when talking about innovation, trends and efficacy (1). However, while consumers are aware that HA can penetrate the skin, they may not know that high molecular weight HA, which offers the greatest hydration benefits, does not spontaneously penetrate (2). Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection complex changes this paradigm by proving that it is possible for HMW HA to reach deep epidermal layers which previously seemed impossible!
Amandine Scandolera, Head of biological evaluation for Active Beauty, said, “Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection is an exclusive combination of HA and bentonite clay, inspired from ionophoresis (3). Thanks to a patented and proprietary process, bentonite clay can be activated to efficiently entrap molecules of HMW HA in the interstitial space of specific lamellar structures. Hyaluronic acid molecules will thus benefit from an electrical attraction from the skin’s deep layers, to a depth of 75 microns.”
Impressive in-depth skin perfection supported by clinical tests
Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection completes the range of hyaluronic acid solutions for beauty brands thanks to its impressive in-depth skin perfecting properties, supported by clinical tests:
- Long-lasting hydration (more than 24 hours in just one application), a benefit that sig- nificantly smoothens the skin
- Well-ageing, enabling a decrease of fine lines in the crow’s feet area by 27.3% after one month
- Mattifying effect, with a significant reduction of skin’s shininess by 27.4%
Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection not only demonstrated long-term benefits after prolonged use of the product (28 days), but also showed significant well-ageing and mattifying benefits after just one application. In addition to these skin-perfecting benefits, with both of its constituents recognised for their textural properties, Cristalhyal™ e-Perfection also acts as a sensoriality booster, bringing softness to the formula through its satin-touch.
