Greentech announces the launch of its new active for problem skin

Greentech will present at the in-cosmetics 2018 trade show in Amsterdam a plant based active ever more innovative. After its latest remarkable initiatives in terms of 360° protection of the skin, Soliberine®, against photo-aging including blue light and Urbalys®, protecting against pollution in all its forms, Greentech takes care of oily skin, a complex topic and a major need in constant progress.

Acne-prone skin: a complex phenomenon

Beyond the imbalances of adolescence, adult skins suffer more and more from these imperfections. Indeed, acne affects up to 85% of 12-24 year olds and 12% of women and 8% of men over 25 years. The shape, appearance and location of acne can be different: presence of more pronounced inflammatory lesions more on the upper face or back for men and in the lower face for women. Depending on the intensity and severity of the pathology, the person can be touched and impacted psychologically. This pathology is aggravated by various factors: the hormonal environment, but also stress, sun, nutrition (rich in carbohydrates in particular), or pollution.

Acne is an inflammatory disease of the pilo-sebaceous follicle. Four associated factors are responsible:

  • Hyperseborrhea (which corresponds to an overproduction of sebum resulting from hormonal activity) and dysseborrhea (qualitative alteration of sebum, modification of its composition and in particular oxidation of squalene which then becomes acnegenic and comedogenic)
  • Increased microbial proliferation of Propionibacterium acnes (now named Cutibacterium acnes)
  • Hyperkeratinization (excessive multiplication of the cells of the follicular canal wall which causes a plug, prevents sebum from evacuating and leads to the formation of comedones)
  • Inflammation and associated hyperpigmentation

In addition, these components are linked. In fact, oxidized sebum constitutes an ideal nutrient medium for certain bacteria and in particular P. acnes causing its multiplication. However, P. acnes itself has deleterious effects inducing overproduction of sebum, hyperkeratinization and inflammation. Thus the acne phenomenon behaves like a vicious circle, each component increasing the other one.

Innovation at the heart of Greentech strategy

Pioneer in plant biotechnology, Greentech has drawn on its knowledge in terms of botany, plant molecules and skin biology to develop its new active.
Resulting from a wide screening of plants, selected from the literature, on the different components of acne, ACNILYS® was born. Extracted from Rhodomyrtus tomentosa berries, it contains different molecules of interest.

Acnilys® has been tested in vitro thanks to innovative tests. An in vivo study completed the results and showed the effectiveness of our new active from 28 days.
