Universal skin-illuminating prebiotic molecule

Givaudan Active Beauty has developed an ingredient that features a skin and prebiotic mode of action that acts holistically on specific skin bacteria, targeting common pigmentation pathways to provide skin brightening and enhance skin radiance, whether the users are in Africa, Asia, Europe or elsewhere

ABSTRACT

For beauty products to be truly inclusive, they must work for all skin types and conditions, and in every region of the world. Givaudan Active Beauty has developed Illuminyl™ 388, which features a skin and prebiotic mode of action that acts holistically on specific skin bacteria, targeting common pigmentation pathways to provide skin brightening and enhance skin radiance, whether the users are in Africa, Asia, Europe or elsewhere. To test the universality of this innovative treatment, Givaudan undertook a series of clinical studies to measure efficacy on four different ethnicities.

What is considered beautiful can differ dramatically by country and continent, but the pursuit of beautiful skin is universal. If the beauty industry is to deliver universally efficient and inclusive skincare products effectively, it must explore skin physiology and conditions across diverse populations. By understanding the behaviours, biology, environment and lived experiences of beauty consumers worldwide, we can embrace diversity and inclusivity in skincare innovation, while celebrating regional differences, traditions and needs.
