Controlling sebum and cleansing pollution

Clariant and its Active Ingredients business unveiled new data confirming the effectiveness of food-origin plant extracts active BioDTox in activating the skin’s natural detoxification process, controlling sebum and cleansing pollutants on the skin so that they can be easily eliminated. The result is a brighter complexion and better protection against environmental stress damage.

Through detailed understanding of BioDTox’s mode of action, Clariant Active Ingredients has identified that the active ingredient enhances the skin cell detoxification process by activating the Nrf2 pathway, which in turn breaks down toxins, protecting against oxidative stress damage and limiting skin disorders. Immediately, sebum is controlled and pores are cleaned. 

Clariant Active Ingredients verified the performance through new in-depth tests focused on regulation of sebocytes activation in which various life conditions such as oily-skin and acne-prone skin models were mimicked leading to control of lipid content. Further tests included apoptotic protection against oxidative stressors. Clariant Active Ingredients also identified the ingredient’s ability to aggregate pollutants in order to ease their elimination by increasing the particle size, thus reinforcing the cleaning ability of the active.

BioDTox is made of three extracts from specific chosen species known for their potential in revitalising the detoxification process. Citrus bioflavonoids are powerful antioxidants against free radicals because they act as radical scavengers. Aloe, whose skin benefits are well-established, contains polyphenols which have strong anti-oxidant properties. Broccoli is an abundant source of sulforaphane, a well-known activator of the phase II detoxification enzyme.
