As a versatile, effective concept for ageing and acne prone skin, Retinol has a long tradition in cosmetics. Modern consumers are happy to purchase cosmetics containing retinol.  They are very aware of skin health, prefer multifunctional effects and are looking for substantial active concepts like retinol can offer.

As consumers increasingly look for milder products that are friendly to the skin barrier, the demand for retinol alternatives is growing.

However, they need to handle the downsides of retinol. In order to be active it has to be converted to retinoic acid in the skin. It can cause irritation, may reduce skin hydration and induce photosentitivity, which limits its use to night cosmetics.

Furthermore it is of synthetic origin and may cause instabilities in formulations.



Retinol-like activity that goes beyond that of retinol

Binding of retinoic acid to its receptor activates numerous genes in keratinocytes, fibroblasts and sebocytes. They control sebum regulation, the quality of the stratum corneum and the synthesis of collagen. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is an anti-ageing molecule with anti-acne properties.

Like retinol, SEBOCLEARTM-MP activates the retinoic acid receptors and has anti-ageing effects. It reduces wrinkles and increases skin skin firmness and elasticity. In particular, when it comes to sebum control the effects of  SEBOCLEARTM-MP go beyond those of retinol.

Sebum is produced by the sebocytes located in the sebaceous glands. The released sebum migrates to the surface of the skin. Excess sebum leads to impure and oily skin, promotes proliferation of Cutibacterium acnes and triggers inflammation. Retinol and SEBOCLEARTM-MP reduce sebum production which is the first step in controlling oily skin. In addition, SEBOCLEARTM-MP even counteracts inflammatory processes and rebalances the disturbed skin microbiota. Furthermore, it inhibits the enzyme 5-a-reductase which is also involved in excess sebum production.
