Silab unveils Apioskin natural plumping active ingredient

French cosmetic chemicals developer Silab has taken the wraps off Apioskin, a natural plumping active ingredient with hydrating properties.

The new product is purified in Apiogalacturonans (APG) from giant duckweed (Spirodela polyrhiza), which is said to contain a unique pectin giving it its capacity to bind water.

Silab claims Apioskin activates the biological levers of cutaneous hydration (aquaporins, osmolyte transporter, natural moisturizing factor).

“Tested in vivo at 3% in Caucasian and Asian volunteers, the active ingredient thus provides a flash and long-lasting hydration to dehydrated skin, superficially and in depth (from the stratum corneum to the upper dermis),” the company said.

“The skin is thus beautified as of 21 days of application: dehydration lines are smoothed, facial volumes are redefined, and complexion radiance is revived. 100% of the Caucasian volunteers reported that their skin was more hydrated, softer, more comfortable, and more luminous,” it added.

Apioskin is a patented active ingredient recommended in all plumping skin care products at a dose of 0.5 to 3%.

Available in aqueous solution, Silab says Apioskin is easy to formulate, complies with biodiversity regulations and has a natural origin content of 99.2% (ISO 16128).
