Plants have developed a complex biochemistry to synthesise an incredible number of secondary plant metabolites to fight bacteria, viruses, insects and even animals.
As such, an advantage of developing natural cosmetic actives is that we can use the cornucopia of active molecules from the plant kingdom. The challenge is just to find the right plant for the corresponding application.
Seboclear-MP (INCI: Propanediol, bioflavonoids) was developed to act on impure and acne-prone skin. As this is a challenging field with multiple variables, a special set of effective molecules had to be found.
Diprenylated isoflavones from Maclura cochinchinensis can regulate multiple key enzymes and pathways, which are important for the . . .
