World leader in the engineering of natural active ingredients
SILAB’s reputation is based on excellence. An expert in skin biology and in the mastering of plants and biotechnologies for more than 30 years, this independent French group provides major names in cosmetic and dermo-cosmetic industry with patented and effective active ingredients.
The beauty of healthy skin. SILAB Cosmetics markets a catalog of almost 100 cosmetic natural active molecules, with scientifically proven functional properties complying with international regulations. They are recognized on the global beauty market for their high level of scientific innovation.
The care of compromised skin. SILAB Softcare, a department fully dedicated to the care of compromised skin, has a strong commitment to health. Intended for the dermo-cosmetic and dermatological markets, its active ingredients respond to cutaneous disorders (atopic dermatitis, etc.) by reactivating the biological mechanisms of healthy skin according to three principles of excellence: Efficacy, Safety and Naturality.
When Technology enhances Nature.
Always at the leading edge of innovation, SILAB is recognized worldwide as a specialist in the engineering of natural active ingredients and in the development of advanced phytotensors for the cosmetic industry. Thanks to its innovation strategy, SILAB launches several products each year to answer the current and future needs of its customers.
ECOBIOTYS®, from Nectarobiota® to skin microbiota: the power of bio-inspiration
The cutaneous microflora provides the skin with protection and immunity. However, SILAB’s innovative research work revealed that aging can cause an imbalance of skin microbiota, thus compromising skin integrity.
In order for mature skin and its microbiota to recover a perfect symbiosis, SILAB presents ECOBIOTYS®, an active ingredient bio-inspired by the regulating capacity of floral nectar microbiota, the Nectarobiota®. Rich in biopeptides from the yeast Metschnikowia reukaufii, isolated by SILAB from the nectar of the porcelain flower Hoya carnosa, this smart active ingredient is able to:
- restore the functional performance of the skin’s immune and mechanical barriers;
- regulate cutaneous ecology of mature skin, acting on the distribution of bacterial communities.
Thanks to its rebalancing and protective actions on the skin microbiota, ECOBIOTYS® improves skin quality and enables mature skin to recover a radiant complexion.
Developed according to an eco-design approach, ECOBIOTYS® is a patented active ingredient, available in aqueous solution (recommended amount: 1 to 2.5%), and compliant with international cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, Japan, China).

NEUROFENSE®, the neuro-soothing natural concentrate
SILAB presents NEUROFENSE®, an overall natural neuro-soothing active ingredient derived from the roots of red sage, a Chinese medicinal plant that is highly resistant to the cold, to relieve Caucasian and Asian sensitive skin that excessively reacts to external stimuli (climate, environmental and chemical pollution, etc.).
Thanks to its transversal action, NEUROFENSE® targets the three biological components of skin sensitivity, enabling to:
- neutralize neuronal hyper-reactivity by inhibiting TRPV1, the key receptor for sensitive skin;
- restore the quality of the cutaneous barrier;
- reduce skin inflammation.
With its multiethnic efficacy, NEUROFENSE® significantly improves the tolerance threshold for sensitive skin exposed to the cold or pollution. Skin redness is thus attenuated, sensitive skin recovers comfort and protection.
Developed according to an eco-design approach, NEUROFENSE® is a patented active ingredient, available in aqueous solution (recommended amount: 0.5 to 2%), and compliant with international cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, Japan, China).
