Applications & Uses

Mode Of Action

DSM researchers discovered that, in vitro, BEAUACTIVE® activates the master cell regulator PPARα which triggers multi-target effects for better skin. Upon UVB stress BEAUACTIVE® hinders the production of both sunburn cells and the stress marker p53 which can increase skin pigmentation. BEAUACTIVE® also helps the skin to make more collagen, a key structural factor in the prevention of conspicuous facial pores.

Multi-Target Mode of Action
  1. In the in silico model, BEAUACTIVE® docks into PPARα, a master cell regulator whose activation influences multiple targets.
  2. BEAUACTIVE® improves cell protection by reducing the production of UV-induced sunburn cells.
  3. BEAUACTIVE® decreases UV stress marker p53 leading to reduced production of melanin. It is therefore effective at correcting age spots.
  4. BEAUACTIVE® decreases UV-induced MMP expression and increases Collagen I and III to help in the reduction of conspicuous facial pores.

Technical Details & Test Data

Test Data

In vivo

Eight-week placebo-controlled, double blind study

  • 37 volunteers (aged 38–65, mean 53.4 yrs) received product with 1% BEAUACTIVE®
  • 38 volunteers (aged 34–65, mean 54.4 yrs) received the placebo formulation
  • Volunteers had to apply their respective test formulation to the wholeface twice daily (mornings and evenings) for 8 weeks
  • The assessment methods used were: 1. High resolution photo (VISIA CR) and 2. Image analysis (pores and age spots)
