Along time and year, the skin is facing multiple aggressions. We are surrounded by external aggressors such as UV, pollution, tobacco smoke. The way we live, eat and work also impacts the skin condition. A visible and complex problem to handle is irritation, which is a major concern all around the world.
To prevent irritation and reduce atopic-prone skin conditions, Clariant Active Ingredients has developed natural actives for skin care products.
MultiEx BSASM™: extreme skin soother
When the skin suffers from aggressions, multiple irritation cascades take place. Very often, they enter into vicious circles, making them difficult to control. When stressed, the skin overproduces cytokines, such as interleukine-8 (IL-8) well known for their potential aggressiveness to the skin, very often leading to irritation.
At the same time, the Nf-Kb pathway, one of the most important irritation pathway, is activated and leads to the overproduction of these chemokines and cytokines. A global control of these targets should lead to soothing activity.
To keep under control the processes leading to skin irritation, Clariant Active Ingredients has developed MultiEx BSASM™.
This natural active is a unique combination of 7 natural plant extracts well-known and traditionally used in Asia to obtain a fast and particularly efficient soothing effect: Centella asiatica, tea, chamomile, licorice, rosemary, skullcap and Japanese knotweed.
This original mix has proven its activity in order to reduce extreme irritation after only 4 weeks, in a very powerful manner.
