Givaudan unveils RetiLife, an innovative 100 % naturally derived retinol from biotechnology

Givaudan today announces the launch of RetiLife, an anti-aging molecule and a revolutionary development for the cosmetics industry. This new active ingredient is the first retinol to contain exclusively natural ingredients, creating a sustainable solution to chemically-synthesized retinol.
RetiLife is the result of biotechnological advances made by our experts. Through the use of micro-organisms, pure retinol is produced in a natural carrier during a fermentation process of plant sugars, then combined with natural antioxidants to ensure its protection, even at very high concentrations. RetiLife is the first product of its kind to offer a sustainable alternative to synthetic retinol, with equivalent anti-wrinkle efficacy.

With a composition of 100 % of natural origin, including sunflower oil as a carrier, RetiLife avoids synthetic ingredients such as BHT/BHA or polysorbate. Its molecule is identical to its chemical equivalent.

Maurizio Volpi, President of Givaudan Parfums et Beauté, said: " Over the years,
