Phyto-Biotics Acai®

The stem cell trend is here to stay. Research shows that plant stem cells can slow down aging of the skin by defending against extrinsic stress. Phyto-Biotics Acai® capitalizes on specific activity of phenolic metabolites produced by the Acai palms to provide a plant-derived stem cell ingredient that imparts antioxidant, protectant and powerful anti-aging benefits for an everlasting appearance. Active Concepts has chosen to use a novel approach, which focuses on biotic stress, embodied by the sustainable practice of co-culturing of plant stem cells to produce secondary metabolites. This technology also induces cellular differentiation and provides potent cosmetic benefits to any formulation.

  • ORAC Assay

    Phyto-Biotics Acai® exhibited potent antioxidant activity comparable to 100M Trolox®. The antioxidant capacity of Phyto-Biotics Acai® increased as the concentration increased, as a result we can assure that its ability to minimize oxidative stress is dose dependent.

  • IL-6 ELISA Assay

    Phyto-Biotics Acai® exhibited anti-inflammatory effects on LPS-treated fibroblasts. As expected, the changes in IL-6 production using Phyto-Biotics Acai® appears to be dose dependent. This decrease in IL-6 production indicates a reduced inflammatory environment which could decrease the signs of aging and reduce the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. For these reasons, we can assume Phyto-Biotics Acai® is suitable for cosmetic applications designed to provide soothing and anti-aging properties.

  • Moisturization Assay

    As evidenced in a 4 week efficacy study of Phyto-Biotics Acai® on skin, moisture levels were improved by 51.17% after 24 hours and by 102.48% after 4 weeks when compared to the untreated control. When compared to the base cream Phyto-Biotics Acai® improved moisturization by 12.08% and after 4 weeks Phyto-Biotics Acai® improved moisturization by 27.25%. Results indicate that Phyto-Biotics Acai® is capable of increasing moisturization when compared to both the untreated control as well as the base lotion.
