Sederma was awarded in China with the PCHi Fountain Award for Moisturising/Hydration Active Ingredient for Crystalide, its bio-highlighter peptide designed to make the skin clear, uniform and glowy just like a piece of crystal.
This innovation from Sederma, especially developed to achieve long-term translucent glass-like skin, was recognised as a marriage between technology and trend.
“Crystalide was inspired by the Korean ‘glass skin’ trend. Everybody loves that type of skin, but the selfie trend is really hot in Asia and that’s why glass skin has become such a big thing here,” said Chris Kuk, technical marketing manager of Croda, who received the award on behalf of Sederma.
Crystalide belongs to a third generation of cosmetic peptides that offer the best activity/structure relationship possible for an increased bioavailability and efficiency. A full range of studies demonstrated this unique peptide’s ability to exert a holistic activity in the epidermis, from the deep layers to the skin surface: It induces the chaperone protein α-crystallin to preserve skin transparency while its soft-polish effect reveals a uniform glow. Crystalide has also been demonstrated to exert an epigenetic regulation leading to a harmonious skin maturation and improvement of the skin surface quality.
“This award is a fantastic recognition of the Sederma’s Laboratory of Prospective and Applied Chemistry know-how in cosmetic peptide development,” said Olga Gracioso, Sederma marketing director.
