With its fully integrated R&D, Production and Marketing, SILAB is the sustainable partner for the development of your next innovative, trend catching skin care and hair care active products


World leader in the engineering of natural active ingredients

The beauty of healthy skin. SILAB Cosmetics markets a catalog of more than 100 cosmetic natural active molecules, with scientifically proven functional properties complying with international regulations. They are recognised on the global beauty market for their high level of scientific innovation.

The care of compromised skin. SILAB Softcare, a department fully dedicated to the care of compromised skin, has a strong commitment to health. Intended for the dermo-cosmetic and dermatological markets, its active ingredients respond to cutaneous disorders by reactivating the biological mechanisms of healthy skin according to three principles of excellence: Efficacy, Safety and Naturality.

Latest product innovation

As a forerunner, SILAB is recognised worldwide as a specialist in the engineering of natural active ingredients and in the development of advanced phytotensors for the cosmetic industry.

Driven by its high scientific expertise, SILAB launches several products each year to answer the current and future needs of its customers.

LACTOBIOTYL, a postbiotic concentrate for a preserved microbiota and a revived radiance

LACTOBIOTYL is a postbiotic active ingredient targeting dry skin, obtained by the bioguiding of a plant probiotic Lactobacillus arizonensis.

It improves the integrity of the skin barrier, activates epidermal renewal while preserving the equilibrium of the cutaneous microbiota. Tested on volunteers’ face and hands, it restores hydration and luminosity to dry skin.

COHELISS, the stretching program to restore the skin's firmness and luminosity

Pioneer in the field of mechanobiology of the dermis and epidermis, COHELISS restores the skin natural stretching effect by stimulating its mechanical and biological cells functions in response to mechanical stress.

Composed of arabinoxylans obtained from rye seed, COHELISS tightens the dermis fibrous network and activates epidermal renewal. The skin thus regains its elasticity and tone.

The gravitation folds and expression lines are attenuated. The microrelief is smoothed and the complexion radiance is revived.

SENSORIALINE, sensory awakening for regenerated skin

Derived from coconut flour, SENSORIALINE is an active imbued with sensoriality targeting epidermal regeneration. Founded on strong scientific expertise (in vitro biological models, metabolomic study, molecular modeling), it activates the olfactory and taste receptors in the epidermis (becoming deregulated during aging), thereby favoring a robust, effective barrier function.

It boosts hydration of the skin and revives complexion radiance. SENSORIALINE is recommended for skin care products that regenerate mature Caucasian and Asian skin.

Worldwide Recognised Expertise

Mastering Natural with 100% natural raw materials, eco-friendly industrial processes as well as bioactive molecule’s characterisation and assessment of its biodegradability and safety.
