MYOLINE® is a natural relaxing active ingredient derived from the mineral richness of watercress. Its “botox-like” and well-being boosting effects make it a suitable solution for skin subjected to psychological stress.

The skin, a reflection of our emotional state

As a mirror of our emotions, the face is particularly stressed and reveals stressful situations. The tension of facial muscles and the secretion of stress mediators in the skin are responsible for the premature appearance of expression wrinkles and a dull complexion.

In order to meet the needs of stressed skin, SILAB has chosen to beneficially use the power of minerals from watercress to target the behavioral and biological consequences of stress.

A “botox-like” mineral elixir promoting skin well-being

MYOLINE® has a myorelaxing action in vitro by acting on the neuromuscular junction. This efficacy is reflected in vivo by a “botox-like” effect. As of 5 days of treatment, the first expression lines of young skin are smoothed, and the wrinkles of mature skin are blurred with an effect comparable to that obtained with a retouched photo ("soft focus" effect).

MYOLINE® also influences the secretion of well-being mediators: the oxytocin and endocannabinoid pathways of the skin are stimulated to improve skin homeostasis. The volunteers' perception of stress is reduced, and the quality of their skin is improved: the barrier function is thus restored, hydration increased, and the radiance of the complexion enhanced.

The watercress: a local, traced and secured supply

Faithful to its responsible strategy, SILAB has favored local, traced, secure and environmentally friendly sourcing.

The company is part of an upcycling approach by processing watercress of quality not used for the food sector.

The authentication of the raw material was carried out using the molecular barcoding technique, thus securing the supply.

SILAB is committed to supporting the watercress farm in the construction of an industrial dryer, thus making it possible to control the quality of the raw materials supplied and to diversify the farmer's activities.

MYOLINE® is a patented active ingredient recommended at the amount of 0.5 to 2.0%. Available in aqueous solution, it is easy to formulate. It complies with regulations on biodiversity, displays a natural content of 99.2% (ISO 16128) and meets with international cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, China, Japan, etc.).


SILAB develops, manufactures and markets purified, patented natural active ingredients with proven efficacy to the world's leading names in the cosmetics and dermocosmetics industry. Its products, designed to care for both healthy and fragile skin, are easy to formulate and respectful of the environment. By remaining true to its founding values of independence, excellence, and quality, SILAB has been a world leader in the engineering of natural active ingredients since its creation over 35 years ago.
