Abstract

Retinol has a long tradition in cosmetics as an ingredient for acne-prone skin and in the anti-ageing field. Its effectiveness is undisputed. Retinol is well known and in demand among consumers. Since consumers are showing increasing interest in the ingredients of cosmetics and the trend is moving towards sustainability, more and more natural cosmetic active ingredients are in demand. For retinol, an active ingredient from the tropical plant Maclura cochinchinensis comes into question here, which has retinol-like effects and is very mild to the skin. In addition, Maclura extract has other positive properties for the skin that retinol does not have.
