Lipotec wins Best Ingredient Award with Actigym
The ceremony took place on day two of the in-cosmetics show and celebrated the product, derived from marine biotechnology, for its skin toning properties.
Lipotec claims that Acigym redefines areas sensitive to sagging due to ageing or insufficient physical activity such as abdomen, arms and thighs, by mimicking the effect of endurance exercise.
It induces adiponectin release from adipose tissue, enhancing metabolism of type I muscle fibres and mitochondrial activity.
Having conducted in vivo tests, Lipotec can affirm that the product works alone or in combination with exercise for best benefits, and can address a variety of modern consumers' lifestyles and applications.
It was coming…
Having won the Silver Award in Asia in 2013 and the Bronze Award at in-cosmetics this year in Hamburg it is a great next step for the company.
“We are absolutely delighted to have won the Gold Award at in-cosmetics Asia with our product ACTIGYM,” says Dr Juan Carlos Escudero, General Manager of Lipotec.
“The market in Asia is very dynamic and we feel it's important to test new products in this region. If it's successful in Asia it will be successful across the rest of the world.”
