Clay is one of the oldest skin care treatments still used today, thanks to its many cosmetic and wellness benefits, which include impurity removal, smoother skin, improved cellular metabolism and reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation. The results of clay treatments can also lead to enhanced emotional well-being and self-perception.

Lubrizol Life Science Beauty (LLS Beauty) recently launched Uniclay biotech ingredient, a new sustainable skin care solution developed by Lipotec™ Active Ingredients. Obtained from a microorganism isolated from clay, it mimics the multiple beneficial effects of clay on the skin, helping create cleaner, smoother and healthier skin in different ethnicities.

With the growing trend in clean beauty and consumers of all skin types looking for simple ways to enhance their well-being, Uniclay biotech ingredient is an ideal choice to meet those goals as brings the benefits of clay treatments in an eco-conscious, sustainable way.

Sustainably sourced near a wetland in Catalonia, Spain, the ingredient has shown multiple benefits in in vivo and in vitro efficacy studies. In vivo a 6.6% decrease in red spots was observed after 28 days of treatment at 2%. In only 14 days of applying a cream containing 3% ingredient an increase by 9.5% and 13.5% in smoothness and softness respectively was shown, as well as a 50.7% reduction in porphyrins, for enhanced skin purification. The improvement was observed in all ethnicities.

A third clinical test was carried out using the Mirror Testtechnique, with participants answering questions about their appearance while standing in front of a mirror at the beginning and end of the study. Responses were evaluated for vocal intensity and tone, demonstrating stress level about their reflection, and words used to describe their appearance. Compared to results with a benchmark clay mask, enhancement of well-being and self-perception was similar when using the Uniclay biotech ingredient. 

Based on these studies, incorporating Uniclay biotech ingredient into skin care creams for face and body provides consumers with an ideal solution for not only enhancing the skin of all types of ethnicities, but also in boosting well-being and self-perception in an eco-friendly way.
