Givaudan Active Beauty has launched a new patented bio-active ingredient acting on keratin infrastructure called ResistHyal™ that will revolutionize the hair care market. It also meets consumers’ expectations for multifunctional products. Givaudan will present it at in-cosmetics Global 2017.

By analyzing the growing consumers’ categories, like Millennials, Active Beauty’s research team crafted ResistHyal™ to offer a powerful multifunctional and cost effective solution to dull, coarse hair with 7 unique properties crucial to activating the beauty of one’s hair:

ResistHyal™ - Moisturizing Properties

ResistHyal™ has been designed on the basis of hyaluronic acid water buffering properties. It contains an optimized ratio of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acids, which create a specific local molecular moisturizing film around the hair fiber.

Amandine Scandolera, Cell and Molecular Biology Manager, said:

“ResistHyal™ is the result of an enriching collaborative work combining the mastery of the complexity of the formula and the challenge of applying Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in hair care. Thanks to Active Beauty’s expertise in HA, ResistHyal™ is an open plat- form to let brands create new innovative end-products & rituals for haircare. Knowing that 96% of consumers want to continue to use the product after the clinical tests, I would say that is the best reward we could expect”.

ResistHyal™ is China compliant, safe, non-irritating, non-allergenic, and very easy to formulate in all haircare formulas. It will enable cosmetic brands to differentiate themselves on the market by bringing performance, combined with natural and multifunctional claims to the consumer.

Under Control Spray – Featuring ResistHyal™

Givaudan Active Beauty has introduced its “Under Control” spray to beautify, protect and moisturize every strand of hair, while maintaining its natural volume from the roots to the tips.

Featuring ResistHyal™, the first bio-active hair enhancer acting on keratin infrastructure to enhance all hair beauty features at once, Under Control Spray is perfect combination of functions for protecting and beautifying the hair.

Regular users of hair straighteners or hair dryers, Under Control Spray will transform all of your “bad hair days” into “perfect hair days” by ensuring that all areas of concern are treated.
