Lipotec wins Best Ingredient Award with Actigym
Lipotec’s marine ingredient Actigym took home the Gold award for Best Ingredient at this year’s in-cosmetics Asia, held in Bangkok.

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.”

Best of the rest

The Best Ingredient Award honours the development of novel actives or functional ingredients that combine scientific excellence, formulation benefits for manufacturers and efficacy for consumers.

This year the judging panel comprised of renowned experts in the sector including: - Alain Khaiat, Seers Consulting - Karl Lintner, President of KAL’IDEES SAS - Jack Ferguson, founder of Skinnovation Ltd - Marc Pissavini, Director of Basic Applied Research at Coty-Lancaster Group.

Silver went to DSM Nutritional Products Asia Pacific with Valvance, a breakthrough range of sensory and visual modifiers designed to deliver immediate perceived effects in both look and feel.

Taking joint Bronze were BASF with Tinosorb, an innovative organic particulated UVB and UVAII absorber and Ichimaru Pharcos, who became the first Asian company to win an Innovation Zone award, for its natural whitening ingredient CinderellaCare, which can reduce kinesin expression in melanocytes.
