Supporting the previous study results on Ganeden’s patented probiotic (beneficial bacteria) derived, cosmeceutical ingredient, Bonicel once again improved skin hydration & elasticity and reduced the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, redness and roughness in humans.
"We are thrilled that once again, a third-party, placebo controlled study demonstrates that Bonicel is so effective as a combination anti-aging beauty ingredient. Not only does it moisturize and increase skin elasticity, it also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; it's impressive that one ingredient can do all that,” said David Keller, Vice President, Scientific Operations, Ganeden Biotech.
This is good news for beauty manufacturers looking for natural, science-backed ingredients to launch products in this $60 billion dollar U.S. industry that experienced double digit growth last year.
“We are seeing a lot of introductions in ‘probiotic' topical skin care products, but few, if any, have research demonstrating they work at time of application. We’re excited that we have science showing that Bonicel does,” Keller said.
Bonicel also meets the strict standards of the burgeoning natural and organic personal care industry such as non-GMO, gluten-free and natural. The $9 billion natural and organic personal care category is experiencing consistent year-over-year growth.
Bonicel can be used in lotions, creams, gels, powders, scrubs, masks and cleansers. Unlike most probiotic ingredients used in topical formulations, including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, Bonicel, naturally derived from the well-documented probiotic strain GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), is easy to include in formulations.
Bonicel is produced naturally during the fermentation process of GanedenBC30, the company’s proprietary probiotic strain. Ganeden utilizes proprietary processes to optimize the metabolic activity of the fermenting organism producing maximum levels of the organism’s metabolites.
