Clariant Actives and Natural Origins has launched Rootness Mood+ (INCI: Not Provided), an active skin care ingredient derived from the roots of Sanguisorba officinalis that concentrates the effects of light into an eco-responsible extract.
According to the company, Rootness Mood+ can enhance sunlight benefits, reactivate the skin’s natural radiance and improve skin complexion through the triggering of skin photoreceptors. It can also increase the effect of vitamin D in the skin by upregulating vitamin D downstream pathways.
Julie Droux, global technical marketing manager for actives and natural origins, commented: “Our modern lifestyles make us forget the need to spend time outdoors and this has direct effects on skin appearance. Rootness Mood+ can buffer against the effects of seasonal variations and reduced sun exposure, cosmetically reproducing light’s benefits on the skin, offering a way to improve skin beauty and complexion."
