Personal care applications add active ingredient


 

DuPont Industrial Biosciences said it has created the DuPont™ GENENCARE® OSMS MI, a natural active ingredient for personal skin care applications.

The ingredient helps regulate the water balance within skin cells and prevents damage from heat and UV radiation, the company said. GENENCARE® OSMS MI is a vitamin-like ingredient that can increase the skin cell metabolism (oxygen consumption and energy stock level) and improves skin tautness, according to the company's tests.

“We're excited to make available the new GENENCARE® OSMS MI to DuPont customers,” said Piera Pericu, global personal care segment leader within Home and Personal Care division.
