Plants naturally utilize and bind water in their cells as a mechanism of survival. This cellular water or plant essence offers the ability to harness a nutritional, isotonic solution capable of nourishing the skin and hair in personal care applications. FSS BiEau® Actif botanical waters combine advancements in sustainable beauty and leading edge science to provide brands essential ingredients to support their unique aspirations. Innovative development of botanical waters promote the natural balance of the skin, scalp, and hair while utilizing natural plant properties to work in conjunction with the skin.
Botanical waters offer brand-differentiating properties including unique origin stories, sustainability appreciation, and efficacious beauty benefits that work with your hair and skin care for a healthy complexion.
FSS BiEau® Actif Tri-Mushroom is a vital botanical essence sustainably sourced from Ganoderma lucidum, Inonotus obliquus, and Cordyceps sinensis, designed to encourage an isotonic environment while reducing inflammation and promoting antioxidant protection for the skin. Ganoderma lucidum, Inonotus obliquus, and Cordyceps sinensis, are three mushroom species commonly utilized to optimize skin health and are recognized as an abundant source of nutrients including glutamine. In the body, glutamine downregulates inflammatory pathways, diminishes oxidative stress, and acts as a precursor for antioxidant molecules such as glutathione. FSS BiEau® Actif Tri-Mushroom utilizes a novel approach to sustainability while capitalizing on the presence of glutamine, from three mushroom species, to rejuvenate the complexion with potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
FSS BiEau® Actif Tri-Mushroom utilizes cellular plant essence to deliver isotonic nutrients and harmonize skin and hair. Skin is the largest organ of the body and is composed of approximately 60% water. As a protective barrier, the skin is our best defense against external aggressors. However, the skin’s permeability can be influenced by a variety of environmental attributes including pollution particles, cosmetic actives, temperature fluctuations, and water exchange. A delicate balance exists between water introduced onto our skin, using cosmetics, cleansers etc, and the water present in our skin and cells. Water exchange occurs through the cell membrane through the process of osmosis. Deionized or demineralized water can be traditionally used in the creation of cosmetic ingredients, but this water typically lacks minerals and natural components that our skin craves. Isotonic solutions offer an environment most beneficial and least disruptive to skin cells while enhancing affinity with the skin due to a mineral content close to that of skin cells. Isotonic materials maintain the size, shape, and integrity of skin cells. Some cosmetic solutions are hypotonic or hypertonic and can damage skin cells by drawing out cellular water, thereby drying out the skin, or even forcing water into the cells and causing cell deformation. Isotonic solutions maintain a natural environment and healthy balance for the skin and hair.
Hailed as healthy for the planet, mushrooms maintain a low carbon footprint and a sustainable life cycle. Packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, mushrooms promote healthy beauty inside and out. Glutamine is an amino acid present in mushrooms that lends to its ability to provide potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits in beauty products to encourage a rejuvenated aesthetic. Grown in house, cultured mushroom cells diminish the demand for mushroom harvesting while allowing the manufacture of various ingredients including mushroom botanical water. The renewable nature of mushrooms prompt their incorporation into beauty applications across skin, hair, and body care formulations.
Mushrooms are approximately 90% water and are able to absorb and hold water from their surroundings. This internal cellular water typically resides in the vacuoles, cytoplasm, and cell walls of the mushrooms and contains an abundance of biologically active components. The solar energy has been utilized to effectively evaporate and isolate the nutrient-rich water of Ganoderma lucidum and Inonotus obliquus and Cordyceps sinensis to produce a bioactive cellular water capable of promoting antioxidant protection and anti-inflammatory properties.
Glutamine is an amino acid present in a variety of foods and in our bodies. Mushrooms are a rich, natural source of glutamine. One of the unique benefits of glutamine as a skin care ingredient is its ability to promote antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Glutamine is involved in many metabolic activities including glutathione and protein synthesis as well as energy production. In the body, glutamine downregulates inflammatory pathways, diminishes oxidative stress, and acts as a precursor for antioxidant molecules such as glutathione. Antioxidants are powerful free radical scavengers working to protect and reduce potential damage to cells. Reactive oxygen species, ROS, can modify DNA resulting in cellular damage and in regards to skin care contribute to fine lines, wrinkles, and accelerated signs of aging. Inflammation is another driving force behind the skin aging process, leading to a breakdown of the extracellular matrix and consequential skin wrinkling. Downregulation of inflammatory pathways can alleviate inflammation damage including collagen and elastin degradation, as well as a breakdown of the skin’s barrier function.
FSS BiEau® Actif Tri-Mushroom is a vital botanical essence capable of decreasing inflammation while offering antioxidant protection. FSS BiEau® Actif Tri-Mushroom utilizes a novel approach to eco-conscious cosmetic active development while capitalizing on the presence of glutamine from three mushroom varieties, including Ganoderma lucidum and Inonotus obliquus and Cordyceps sinensis, that work together to promote a healthy complexion. FSS BiEau® Actif Tri-Mushroom can be used in a variety of cosmetic and personal care formulations aimed to nourish and rejuvenate while encouraging an isotonic environment beneficial for optimal health of the skin and hair.
