Givaudan Garners Gold for Dermal Filler


Givaudan Active Beauty received the Gold Award for “Best Innovation Ingredient” at in-cosmetics Latin America 2018, for its anti-aging active ingredient PrimalHyal Ultrafiller.

Though most aesthetic dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, PrimalHyal Ultrafiller was developed with a sustainable hyaluronic acid derivative, 100% acetylated. In vitro, ex vivo and four clinical studies versus placebo showed that PrimalHyal Ultrafiller delivered wrinkle-filling benefits in 1 to 6 hours, along with long term skin improvements. It also prevented collagen degradation and boosted the skin’s own defenses against ROS.

“We have pushed the boundaries of scientific innovation while crafting this new active ingredient,” added R&D director Romain Reynaud. “Thanks to our cross-functional collaboration with Givaudan, we were able to offer PrimalHyal Ultrafiller which is one of the most powerful HA on the market due to its extraordinary clinical benefits.”
