DEINOVE, GREENTECH launch antiaging ingredient


In France, DEINOVE and GREENTECH have launched HEBELYS, a jointly developed cosmetic active ingredient produced by the fermentation of Sphingomonas.

HEBELYS acts on the p16 IINK4A, a key protein involved in premature cellular aging. Testing has also shown that HEBELYS protects against oxidation by stimulating collagen, elastin, and fibrillin synthesis.

HEBELYS is the first active ingredient resulting from the collaboration between DEINOVE and GREENTECH. DEINOVE selected the strain, developed the production process to achieve optimal fermentation performances, and supervised the in vitro tests intended to characterize the extract. GREENTECH developed the formulation process, and validated the stability and the safety, as well as the efficiency, by additional ex vivo tests.

HEBELYS will be presented during the In-Cosmetics trade show in Amsterdam later this week.
