In this year, the BSB awards have recognized three novel ingredients from Symrise – all from renewable resources and addressing multiple sustainability aspects. This demonstrates how Symrise pioneers in those areas that consumers look for when buying cosmetic products for hair, body, and sun care.

SymProt’in™ Oat, a biotech and environmentally friendly hair repair ingredient

With SymProt’inTM Oat, Symrise has introduced a natural, biotech hair care ingredient primarily consisting of organic oat peptides from France using biotechnology. Due to their low molecular weight and specific amino acid composition, they can reach the cortex region and restore hair structural integrity.

SymEffectTM UV: Effective sustainable SPF booster

SymEffect™ UV expands the functionals portfolio of Symrise. The synergistic mixture of renewable ingredients enhances the effectiveness of organic and mineral UV filters. It also improves the sustainability profile of sunscreens because of its natural raw material base. With this product launch, Symrise is responding to the trend towards sustainable sun care.

SupervisomeTM EPH: a 100% bio-based next generation skin tone protector

The 100% natural and readily biodegradable solution SupervisomeTM EPH is based on organic yarrow. Globally approved and standardized, this easy-to-use water-soluble powder can achieve radiant complexion in just one month without imparting any color or odor to finished formulations.

The independent consulting agency BSB has been presenting the renowned European BSB Innovation Awards since 2003. It celebrates the expertise and innovation in the world of cosmetics. Many ingredients from the Symrise Cosmetic Ingredient product portfolio have received awards in the past years.
