Clariant unveils CycloRetin, a natural active ingredient for skin care

At in-cosmetics Global 2024, held in Paris from April 16 to 18, Clariant is showcasing CycloRetin, a natural active ingredient for skin care. Present in the prince of ginseng (Pseudostellaria heterophylla) - a plant prized in Chinese medicine for its many benefits, from treating fatigue to boosting vitality - CycloRetin activates the benefits of retinol while being naturally gentle.

CycloRetin's heterophyllin B molecule is a cyclic peptide that boosts skin matrix production, improving collagen and reducing the signs of aging. With efficacy comparable to that of retinol and bakuchiol, CycloRetin promotes youthful-looking skin. Water-soluble and requiring minimal concentrations, the active ingredient is environmentally friendly. Two formulas containing this ingredient - Firming Mask and Mask Mist - will be presented at in-Cosmetics 2024.

"While exploring the benefits of cyclic peptides in our laboratory, we discovered the exceptional potential of the prince of ginseng to restart the skin matrix production cycle. Highly effective, even in low concentrations, peptides play a crucial role in maintaining the appearance of youthful skin."explains Julie Droux, Global Technical Marketing Manager for Clariant Actives and Natural Origins.
