The products commonly used in the cosmetic industry to treat oily skin and acne are focused on the regulation of sebum secretion by modulating the activity of the 5α reductase at the hormonal level. SOLABIA Research offers a new complementary mechanism of action based on the inhibition of the sebum oxidation. Indeed, this oxidation is responsible for the decrease in the oxygen rate that induces bacterial proliferation of Propionibacterium acnes (an anaerobic bacterium). SEBOXYL® is an organic press juice from the leaves of blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) and raspberry (Rubus idaeus) bushes, stabilized with organic glycerin. Rich in polyphenols, molecules well-known for their anti-oxidizing, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties; these 2 Super-Leaves present a particular interest and are complementary due to their levels of, respectively, condensed tannins or OPC and hydrolysable tannins.
Unlike anti-acne products commonly used in the cosmetic industry, this alternative strategy has a unique upstream effect on the resultant inflammatory response generated by microbial stress, thereby preventing the appearance of imperfections and improving skin aspect.
SEBOXYL® is organic certified by ECOCERT Greenlife and is China-approved (China INCI list 2007).
