Givaudan Active Beauty has published new exclusive clinical data for Vetivyne™, the vetiver inspired skin youth booster, and Yogurtene® Balance, a unique yogurt powder and prebiotic combination, with both contributing to the beauty and well-being of consumers.

External influencers like lifestyle and diet affect our skin microbiota and it is now proven that ageing is also impacting its evolution. Balancing the skin microbiome composition is therefore critical to counteract ageing and enhance the beauty of our skin.

Yogurtene® Balance, an active rich in yogurt constituents and prebiotics supporting the skin friendly bacteria, helps to rejuvenate the skin microflora while improving skin hydration.
This performance was clinically proven in a rinse-off application (bar soap), demonstrating the impact of Yogurtene® Balance on skin microbiota composition after only 15 minutes by modifying it towards the typical composition of a younger skin microbiota. The assay revealed also a significant 2.6 times increase of skin hydration versus placebo.

If balancing the skin microbiome composition is essential, ensuring its protection is also a major challenge. Even if we cannot see the over 1000 species of microbes that live on the upper layer of our skin,

Givaudan Active Beauty researchers performed a new clinical test with Vetivyne™, an anti-ageing active upcycled from vetiver roots. The results revealed that Vetivyne™ avoids dysbiosis by preserving the Actinobacteria abundance, which is typically decreasing when the skin is ageing, therefore protecting the skin microbiome composition over time.

Mathias Fleury, Category Manager Actives said: “Skin microbiome is one of the fastest growing trends in the beauty industry as it is a major scientific new area. This is why we keep investigating new benefits from active ingredients and connect them to the consumers’ expectations. We are delighted to regularly bring our customers new possibilities grounded in solid science. Balancing the skin microbiota is essential to get a healthy and beautiful skin and protecting its composition is crucial. These new microbiome based rinse-off and leave-on applications will offer additional product development opportunities for our customers.”
