Univar to distribute novel nature-based ingredient

Univar B.V., a subsidiary of global chemical and ingredient distributor Univar, has been appointed as distributor of the Phyt-N-Resist cosmetic active in Europe and the MEA.

Created by Deinove, Phyt-N-Resist is a 100% pure phytoene formulation concentrated in organic jojoba oil. A colourless carotenoid obtained through the fermentation of natural sugars by the extremophile bacterium Deinococcus geothermalis, it acts against skin ageing by reducing oxidative stress, as shown in in vitro, ex vivo and clinical studies.
