Berkem unveils its new Skin'Calm active ingredient

Skin'Calm, an extract of acacia robinia flower, designed to soothe sensitive skin damaged by stress or mask wearing.

Skin'Calm acacia flower extract is rich in sugars and polyphenols, both of which help fight against certain skin disorders by soothing the skin*, rebalancing the pH and correcting imperfections. Developed by Berkem, Skin'Calm is a highly anticipated ingredient for cosmetics professionals who want to offer products with a "maskne" effect.

An asset that meets current market expectations

According to a study by NPD Group, sales of facial care for acne or blemishes increased by 32% between 2019 and 2020. An increase that can be explained in particular by the stress and the wearing of the mask related to the health situation, known as the "maskne effect". The Skin'Calm active ingredient is aimed directly at this market.

Certified China Compliant, French Sourcing, Ecocert and 100 % of natural origin, it is used as an ingredient for soothing face care, body care, facial blemish reduction and facial balance creams.

"Skin'Calm acacia flower extract is a 3-in-1 ingredient that meets the high expectations of the cosmetics market. It acts on the skin's balance, has both soothing and anti-imperfection properties.says Charlène Martin, BtoB product manager for plant extraction.

About the "Maskné": Wearing a cloth or surgical mask creates a warm, humid and occlusive environment for the skin. This, along with friction, leads to an increase in sebum production. The appearance of redness, pimples and acne are called the "maskne effect".
