   Fucogel® - The SMART(est) reference in the cosmetic active ingredients market



SOOTHINGOwing to its unique ability to reduce sensory nerve fiber hyperresponsiveness, by inhibiting activation of the ASIC receptor pathway in response to an irritant, Fucogel® immediately relieves neurogenic inflammation (reduction in the release of substance P). Hence, just 5 minutes after application, Fucogel® has a neuro-soothing effect on fragile, sensitive skin, by reducing stinging sensations 

MOISTURIZING: Owing to the hygroscopic properties of fucose and its polysaccharide structure, Fucogel® increases the synthesis of epidermal and dermal hyaluronic acid which decline with age. It has a pleasant moisturizing effect on the skin. 

ANTI-AGING: Owing to its high fucose content, Fucogel® interacts with keratinocyte lectins to modulate keratinocyte communication within the epidermis, and thus acts on protein synthesis. Fucogel® thus helps fight against aging by stimulating the synthesis of collagen 1 and proteins contributing to the skin’s longevity: sirtuin 1 (patented). It is thus able to preserve vital cell processes controlled by sirtuins, such as DNA repair and resistance to oxidative stress.  

RESTRUCTURING: Owing to its ability to stimulate sirtuin 1, Fucogel® also promotes epidermal renewal, with its potential demonstrated by the stimulated expression of three proteins, loricrin, involucrin and SPRR2 markers for differentiation. Fucogel® thus helps fight against aging by compensating for the natural decline in cell renewal. By restoring barrier quality, Fucogel® can bring comfort once again to fragile, sensitive skin prone to irritation. 

TOUCHIn cosmetics, wellbeing is procured by comfortable skin, but also by the pleasure derived from applying a product. Fucogel® thus has the advantage of combining both sensory and active properties. Through its softness, which goes hand in hand with feelings of comfort, wellbeing, and pleasure, Fucogel® offers a genuine emotional experience. 

Fucogel® - The special upgrade for every cosmetic formulation

Fucogel® is an active ingredient which is perfectly suited for the preparation of all cosmetic formulas combining effectiveness and sensory appeal. Its beauty benefits bring amazing results to the skin and is therefore a universal reference among active ingredients. Fucogel® is perfectly suited for face, body, hair, sun care, and makeup products for all ages and all skin types, from babies’ skin to mature skin. Successful applications include gel, gel-emulsion, emulsion, serum, powder and foam. Formulating with Fucogel® has numerous benefits, with the overall aim of procuring wellbeing, it offers an effective, rapid response to fundamental skin needs. 

Fucogel® is an extremely performing active ingredient for damaged hair as well since it’s a high-molecular-weight “coating” polysaccharide. Due to these coating properties, it smooths dry or brittle hair cuticles, under rinse-off and leave-on conditions. It thus effectively helps make hair beautiful, enhancing its softness and sheen. Its neuro-soothing properties also relieve painful sensations like itching, inherent in dry, sensitive scalps.
