AnnonaSense CLR™ provides the skin with means to establish a sustainable homeostatic balance, improving skin health and well-being. The potent adaptogenic action of AnnonaSense CLR™ supports the skin’s endocannabinoid system by activating the CB2 receptor. Through this action, it reduces inflammatory processes induced by TRPV1. Histamine-, as well as TNFα/Substance P-induced stress is down-regulated and the expression of a vital detrimental receptor in skin, IL-31RA, is decreased. AnnonaSense CLR™ makes the skin less sensitive and more balanced, even itch is perceivably reduced. Skin appearance is improved and the perception of well-being and quality of life is enhanced.
Belides™ ORG is a natural skin-lightening agent, derived from organic daisy flowers (Bellis perennis). It is suitable for any skincare concept providing even and luminous complexion and radiant skin. Belides™ ORG’s action is based on a potent, multifaceted reduction in the activity of melanocytes. Belides™ ORG influences different cellular pathways involved in melanogenesis, encompassing the reduction of cellular signaling, tyrosinase transcription, tyrosinase activity and melanosome transfer. These actions lead to even pigmentation and make age spots less visible.
CutiBiome CLR™ is a synergistic complex of lipophilic extracts from Manuka, Black Pepper and Magnolia. It provides essential support for the natural balance between skin and its microbiota in difficult situations, like acne and dandruff. The active reduces the film forming activity and significantly inhibits the growth of virulent phylotypes of Cutibacterium acnes. It strongly reduces inflammation involved in acne and dandruff. In vitro and in vivo studies show that it strongly reduces inflammation involved in acne and dandruff. On people suffering from acne, the use of CutiBiome CLR™ leads to a dramatic and perceivable reduction of sebum production, comedones, pustules and pimples. CutiBiome CLR™ was also shown to reduce expression of 5α-reductase and the production of inflammatory mediators. In vivo studies showed potent reduction of dandruff. CutiBiome CLR™ supports the scalp microbiota to return to its normal healthy state, more effectively than Piroctone Olamine.

Based on a synergistic combination of extracts of Hieracium pilosella and the flowers of Bellis perennis, JuvenEye CLR™ addresses the most important dermatological processes in the formation and persistence of dark circles. It activates vital processes which allow for the breakdown of heme, which is both dark-colored and plays an important role in the etiology of dark circles. JuvenEye CLR™ also activates dermal draining, through its ability to increase the production of VEGF-C. Excess fluids, electrolytes and immune cells are drained away more effectively. With JuvenEye CLR™ melanin deposition in the skin is reduced and overall skin health is improved. In in vivo studies where JuvenEye CLR™ was compared with a corresponding placebo-formulation it could be seen that JuvenEye CLR™ clearly reduces the visibility of dark circles. Both the color and the surface area of dark circles were reduced significantly.
