Four new cosmetics ingredients
Italian company Indena has created four new cosmetics ingredients: Esculo-side, Visnadine, Ferutinin and Ginkgo Biloba Terpenes Phytosome. According to the company, Esculo-side, extracted from horse chestnut branches, protects capillaries and preserves the integrity of perivascular tissue. Visnadine, extracted from Ammi visnaga, is endowed with skin blood perfusion-increasing properties and strong antiphosphodiesterase activity.
From Ferula hermonis, Ferutinin increases skin hydration, smoothness and elasticity, while reducing sebum production. And from Ginkgo biloba, Indena has extracted a fraction containing terpenoids such as bilobalide and ginkgo-lides, which are potent inhibitors of platelet-activating factor-mediated inflammatory response, making it ideal for sensitive skin facing allergens and pollutants.
