SEPPIC presents, at In-Cosmetics Asia, new results for OLIGOGELINE PF, a key active ingredient for skin protection faced to microparticles.
OLIGOGELINE PF is a cosmetic active ingredient containing carrageenans extracted from a red seaweed (Chondrus crispus); and marine minerals.
This red seaweed grows at a few meters deep, exposed to extreme conditions (UV, desiccation at low tide, waves), concentrates carrageenans for a better water retention avoiding desiccation.
OLIGOGELINE PF works as a second skin, forming a natural non occlusive shield to protect from pollution effects.
New results reveal that after emulsion application with 3% OLIGOGELINE PF, then application of 1 micron urban microparticles, then standard rinsing with water only, 78% of microparticles are removed.
Protection is about 43% versus non treated skin. Results are significant versus placebo.
