Exilva shows anti-wrinkle effect in face creams
(29.09.15) Exilva is Borregaard’s innovative new Microfibrillar Cellulose that shows anti-wrinkle performance in face creams.
Tests conducted by a well-known German institute for research, development, testing and analysis for cosmetic products, document that so called blemish balm creams (BB Creams) containing Exilva show a significant decrease in the average depth of roughness and arithmetic mean roughness. Consumers can experience increased smoothness, and decreased skin roughness for up to 4-5 hours after application of the face cream.
“Exilva enables producers of face creams and skin care products to more effectively provide products with a high anti-wrinkle performance. At the same time, it positively affects the product´s environmental footprint. Exilva is the next generation of sustainable performance ingredients for personal care and cosmetic products”, says Executive Vice President for Exilva, Paul Romberg.
Exilva, a Microfibrillar/Microfibrillated Cellulose (MFC), is characterised by its ability to form stable three-dimensional networks of microfibers in cosmetic systems and is a unique solution for high quality products. The secret behind Exilva’s excellent performance is its unique combination of characteristics from soluble polymers and insoluble particles, enabling it to both physically and chemically interact with its surroundings.
