Givaudan Active Beauty unveils PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller, a cosmetic alternative to dermal fillers, at in-cosmetics Global 2018

Scientists developed a new sustainable hyaluronic acid derivative to protect and rejuvenate the skin

The majority of aesthetic dermal fillers is based on hyaluronic acid (HA) and requires local injections with possible complications. Despite their cost, these fillers cannot restore skin’s natural protection.

Givaudan Active Beauty has developed PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller, a new topical hyaluronic acid (HA) acting like an aesthetic filler by penetrating deeply into the skin and filling wrinkles, while stimulating the skin’s anti-pollution defences.

PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller

Four clinical tests have demonstrated the consumers’ benefits of PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller. 

With a single application, it fills small wrinkles (-8.7%) in 60 minutes, with further improvement in 6 hours.

After 1 to 2 months it reduces nasogenian wrinkles (-13%) and improves skin texture for 77% of the volunteers.

Meanwhile, it reactivates the metabolism of aged skin cells to restore the antioxidant skin defences against daily UV rays and pollution. It also boosts skin antioxidant capacities up to +34%.

Romain Reynaud, R&D Director, said: “Our scientific team of skin biology experts have leveraged our leading expertise in hyaluronic acid (HA) to create this new fully acetylated HA. Developed in our Science & Technology Centre of Excellence, PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller goes beyond the current HA-based active ingredients already existing in our industry today. We’ve opened a new way of innovation for premium anti-ageing products.”

PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller is a patent-pending active ingredient delivering anti-ageing benefits while improving the texture of the skin overall. This innovation will help women and men minimise their wrinkles and enjoy smooth skin full of vitality.

To support the launch of this innovation, Givaudan’s experts have created S3D® Pro’Fill: “The time reversing filler”, a new product concept featuring PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller.

Inspired by the clinical formulation used during the evaluations of PrimalHyal™ Ultrafiller, S3D® Pro’Fill fluid texture instantly penetrates into each wrinkle resulting in an immediate blur effect.

Come experience this new lightly perfumed cosmetic active during a visit to our booth, and see the powerful results for yourself!
