Clariant unveils first indoor pollution controller for skin care
Eosidin improves general atopic-prone skin condition & soothes hypersensitive skin caused by indoor pollution.

MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND: Clariant introduces the first product capable of controlling atopic-prone skin and hypersensitivity triggered by indoor pollution, to the personal care industry.

New active ingredient Eosidin, a well-characterized extract of green citrus unshiu, tackles immuno-modulation and shows outstanding results in clinical studies on the atopic-prone skin.

Eosidin originates from the protected reserve of Jeju Island in Korea. The extract is enriched in highly potent molecules: Synephrine, Hesperidin, and Naringin, which play a major role in regulating the immuno-modulation and decrease hypersensitivity conditions. By targeting eotaxin and eosinophils recruitment in the skin, which are key factors in the skin's immune response, Eosidin is able to reduce atopic-prone skin conditions.

The new innovation from Clariant's active ingredients business has a unique mode of action and is proven to control each step of the atopic-prone skin process triggered by indoor pollution. In a test formulation based on 2 percent Eosidin, all results are already significant after 4 weeks.

A dermatologist evaluated the decrease of atopic-prone skin condition and confirmed a -44 percent after 8 weeks. Volunteers also evaluated their itching index (VAS) and it was dramatically decreased by -65 percent after 8 weeks. Hydration increased by +54 percent, and transepidermal water loss (TEWL) was reduced by -30 percent showing an improved skin barrier function after 8 weeks. 95 percent of the clinical volunteers noticed a decrease of skin itchiness and 86 percent decrease in skin dryness.

Eosidin is water soluble and easy to formulate for typical face and body formulations, such as face and body creams, serums, lotions, masks, toners and facial mists. The ingredient has no impact on formulation colour or smell and is China compliant.

"Eosidin offers a truly innovative opportunity to respond to the global anti-pollution trend and answer unmet skin needs from end consumers unaware that indoor pollution is the root of their concern. Eosidin is the ultimate solution to counter indoor pollution and bring back good immuno-modulation, and opens up new concepts for Personal Care finished products targeting itchiness, atopic-prone skin, irritation and hypersensitivity," said Alexandre Lapeyre, global technical marketing manager, Clariant active ingredients business.
