We launched AvenaPLex, our brand new active lipid complex that repairs, renews, and protect’s the skin’s lipid barrier, at in-cosmetics Global 2019. AvenaPLex is an anhydrous, oat-derived cosmetic ingredient that boasts a remarkable profile, with proven ability to:
- Increase skin essential ceramide levels
- Rapidly repair the skin lipid barrier to reduce TEWL
- Significantly increase the performance of key gene markers, including up-regulating Hyaluronan Synthase 3
- Rapidly absorb into skin, resulting in a non-greasy feel
These claims are the result of a 40% polar lipid content; a powerful mix of rapidly penetrating sterols, ceramides and free fatty acids.
To demonstrate the efficacy of AvenaPLex, we formulated a Recovery Body Butter. This Recovery Butter has been created as part of a new formulation package that demonstrates the use of our ingredients in a product line centred around the prep and care required by the skin before and after a big occasion. The Recovery Butter has been specifically formulated to support and replenish the skin in the period following the big occasion.
The Recovery Butter has a rich, luxurious texture, melting effortlessly into the skin upon application to deliver the benefits of AvenaPLex. Within a few minutes, skin feels quenched with moisture and satisfyingly smooth to the touch. The inclusion of 1% AvenaPLex in the formulation means that the Recovery Butter works to rapidly repair damaged skin and supplement lipids lost through exposure to environmental aggressors and overuse of harsh, oil-stripping body care products.
