Reinach, 28 March 2023 — Evolva (SIX: EVE), a pioneer in the field of natural molecules and industrial biotech, will launch its “Responsible Care” program for the personal care industry at the trade fair in-cosmetics in Barcelona, Spain, on 28-30 March 2023. As announced in connection with the company’s mid-term plan, personal care represents a new industry segment which Evolva intends to address with proven molecules from its Health Ingredients’ product portfolio, Resveratrol and L-Arabinose. Designed and produced via its unique precision-fermentation platform, these active ingredients are available at scale at the highest quality and purity levels and without drawing from the planet’s natural resources.

Research backed-evidence

Recent extensive research by Evolva unlocked an innovative spectrum of science-backed claims. Accessing the formulator for cosmetic consumer products to new levels of customization for skin and hair beautification is supported by Evolva’s proprietary scientific studies. Specifically, Evolva at in-cosmetics will be featuring an exclusive line of two responsible ingredients and their powerful science: JUNEO and LARALLY.

JUNEO - The Beauty Powerhouse is the nature-based responsible Resveratrol of highest purity with many multi-funtional benefits also on skin and hair as evidenced by new scientific studies. With proven benefits such as detoxifying, protecting, rejuvenating and repairing damaged cells, new application fields in the areas of oxidative stress, skin aging and hair protection are being addressed in an environmentally responsible way.

LARALLY – The Skin Microbiome Influencer is a high-purity natural responsible bioactive
L-Arabinose. It can play a key role in influencing and safeguarding the balance of the skin’s microbiota. Recent extensive research by Evolva confirms topical LARALLY works for the very first time as a bioactive for the microbiome ecosystem on the human skin, qualifying Larally™ as powerful skin microbiome influencer (patent pending).

Both products enable personal care manufacturers looking for novel and sustainable solutions to design innovative consumer products delivering benefits perfectly in line with today’s mindful consumer expectations: Modern, nature-based solutions combining responsible ingredients, with proven benefits and claims backed by science.

At the Evolva stand (AH94), customers can get in touch with the Evolva experts to learn about the exclusive line of responsible ingredients and their powerful science enabling to unlock customagic consumer experiences. Evolva has created a number of responsible product concepts for the event and will promote them under the headline: Think customagic!
