Seppic’s beauty care markets & digital manager Marine Pasquier discusses anti-sagging marine ingredient Sagacious (Propanediol, Himanthalia elongata extract), a concatenation of innovations from biomimetic inspiration, to the responsible harvesting and traceability of seaweed, to the innovative 'Cœur d'algue' extraction process
Experiments on plant growth in the International Space Station showed that plants do not grow properly in microgravity.1
The shape disorders have been linked to under- and over-regulation of proteins. More specifically, plants in microgravity over-express UDP-sulfoquinovose synthase to help maintain plant integrity, and this enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerol (SQDG).
Seppic had the idea that such SQDG families were chemical structures of interest for developing a solution to help maintain the architecture of the skin and fight against skin sagging.
