Evonik: A range of active ingredients to combat stress-related skin problems

Multinational specialty chemical manufacturer Evonik has selected with its portfolio of active ingredients for cosmetic products a series of substances that could help combat stress-related skin problems and gathered them under the title “De-stress your skin.”

Environmental influences as well as physical and emotional stress can stress out the skin. If the load is too heavy, or continues for too long, the concentration of stress hormones such as cortisol in the body rises. This can compromise the skin barrier, and collagen levels are reduced while sebum production and the number of free radicals increase. The visible consequences include wrinkling, acne, and reddening of the skin,” explains the company.

Along with stress reduction through relaxation, the “De-stress your skin” range of active ingredients help alleviate these skin problems, claims Evonik.

The range includes:

  • Ceramide mixtures such as SK INFLUX® and SK INFLUX® V to restore the skin barrier, thus contributing toward improving skin moisturization, and support regeneration of dry skin.
  • Phytosphingosine, to visibly improves skin blemishes like pimples and acne and prevents further outbreaks of blackheads.
  • TEGO® Turmerone to protect the skin against free radicals and oxidative stress, thus reducing wrinkles, ensuring an even-toned complexion, and lending a radiant glow to the skin.
  • TEGO® Cosmo C 100 to aid revitalization and strengthen the skin’s defense mechanisms, protecting it from further irritation.

With this palette of active ingredients, the cosmetics industry can target the most important stress-related skin problems,” says Dr. Tammo Boinowitz, head of the Personal Care Business Line. “They help regenerate and revitalize the skin, improve its visual appearance, and offer anti-oxidative protection.
