For over 10 years, Seppic has been offering natural solutions for nutraceuticals and oral beauty. With the launch of Sepitone, Seppic confirms its nutricosmetic expertise and offers a solution to achieve a natural healthy glow.
Consumers are increasingly interested in oral solutions for beautiful skin. In recent years, nutricosmetics has grown from a niche market to a full-fledged market of nearly $7 billion1.
Beautiful and healthy skin can be defined by different parameters, such as the uniformity and color of the complexion, as well as the smoothness of the skin. A diet rich in antioxidants can improve all three factors. Made without additives or preservatives, Sepitone is a natural ingredient, obtained from fermented wild blueberry extract, offering a unique richness in proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins exert a powerful protection against oxidative stress, whose beneficial effects on collagen, skin elasticity and blood circulation have been described in the scientific literature.
The effectiveness of Sepitone was demonstrated on a panel of 60 women with dull skin in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, during which beneficial effects were observed on: skin color, skin tone uniformity, skin roughness and harmonization of skin microcirculation2.
Léa Marchal, Product Marketing Manager states: "This new active ingredient, launched at Vitafoods 2021 in Geneva, combines effectiveness and naturalness. It is an example of Seppic's expertise in nutricosmetics. Seppic's teams design ingredients driven by science and responding to consumers' search for naturalness."
