For more than 10 years, Seppic has been committed to offer natural and efficient solutions for nutraceuticals and edible beauty. With the launch of SEPITONETM,, Seppic once again confirms its expertise in Beauty-from-Within and offers a new solution to achieve a natural and healthy glow.
As the awareness of the close relationship between dietary interventions, beauty and health is increasing, consumers are more and more interested in edible solutions in their quest of a beautiful skin. In the last few years, beauty-from-within has grown from a niche category to a consistent market of almost 7 billion US dollars1.
A healthy glowing skin can be defined as the combination of different parameters including the skin color, skin evenness and skin softness. These three factors can be beneficially influenced by an antioxidant-rich diet. Made without additives or preservatives, SEPITONETM is a natural ingredient, obtained from fermented wild bilberry extract, offering a unique richness in proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins offer a powerful protection against oxidative stress, and research has confirmed their beneficial effects on collagen, skin elasticity and blood circulation2.
SEPITONETM efficacy was demonstrated on a panel of 60 women with dull skin during a randomized, double-blind and placebo controlled clinical trial, during which beneficial effects were observed on the skin color, the evenness of the skin tone, the skin roughness and the harmonization of the skin microcirculation (publication pending peer review).
Lea Marchal, Marketing Product manager says: “This new active ingredient, first introduced at Vitafoods 2021, in Geneva, allying efficacy and naturality, is the new example of Seppic expertise in Beauty-from-Within. Seppic teams design ingredients driven by science with the most care for people’s health and desire for naturality.”
