Gattefossé releases new susbtantiation data on the resolution of inflammation

Lyon – October 15, 2020

Every day our skin is subjected to multiple aggressions such as sun or environmental pollution. Along with time assaults, they cause inflammation and skin damages. The resolution of inflammation has been so far underestimated in skin care strategies, although it is the prerequisite condition to effective tissue repair.
In collaboration with Ambiotis, Gattefossé uncovered a different program of inflammation resolution in aged skin as well as a deficiency of the synthesis of pro-resolving mediators(1).

Increased ability to resolve inflammation Gattefossé has identified Gatuline® Skin-Repair AF as its best ingredient to help the skin resolve inflammation. The active ingredient boosts the synthesis of specialized pro-resolving mediators and therefore, prevents chronic inflammation induced with age, called inflamm’aging. Better armed to combat inflammation, the skin regenerates more efficiently. Keratinocytes differentiation is enhanced to ensure an optimal recovery of the barrier function. The return to cutaneous homeostasis of stressed or damaged skin is thus accelerated.

Local and organic sourcing Derived from locally sourced Cotton thistle (Onopordum acanthium), Gatuline® SkinRepair AF is an organic certified hydroglycolic extract. Its phytochemical signature (sesquitertene lactones, caffeoylquinic acid derivatives) supports its high level of efficacy.

The plants are grown in the heart of France, on a farm strongly involved with the respect of nature and biodiversity, following principles of an ecological farming method called conservation agriculture (minimum tillage, permanent soil cover with crop residues and live mulches, crop rotation and intercropping). As part of its CSR policy, Gattefossé is committed to help its partner in the development of durable agricultural practices.

“Gatuline® Skin-Repair AF offers a novel and promising strategy to fight inflammation. By focusing on the final resolution of inflammation rather than on decreasing it, chronic inflammatory skin disorders, especially those appearing with age can be durably controlled. This active ingredient will be suitable for all facial or body care products supporting inflamed, damaged or sensitive skins”. Laurie CANEL, Product Marketing Leader – Active ingredients
