Greentech designed an active to fight underarm odor while maintaining skin microbiome homeostasis. Probiophyte Fresh inhibits the proliferation of the underarm bacteria Brevibacterium epidermidis from the genus Corynebacteria but respects proliferation of Staphylococcus epidermidis, a bacteria that produces bacteriocins essential to counteract pathogens. The active is recommended to improve the effectiveness of deodorant, foot sprays or lotions without compromising the epidermis. Additionally, the company launched a range of oily actives named the GreenSofts. These constitute a line of functional active ingredients that will offer solutions for several beauty categories. Through this venture, Greentech developed Soft Butters, GreenSofts that combine properties of Soft Butters with higher feel sensory and auto-emulsion capacities. The GreenSofts can be easily included into formulations such as cleansing creams, cream-oil body washes, in-shower body lotions and more to help offer a silky and soft touch formulation. They also can boost the biological activity.
