Avocado perseose, a biomimetic patented active ingredient targeted to the needs of infants’ skin

        Introduction: Our in vivo and in vitro investigations of infants’ skin, focused on the stratum corneum and epidermis, have provided some evidence concerning its development, organization and biological signature: barrier function in maturation, water handling capacity in fluctuation, inflammation signals and cellular ressource to preserve. In order to accompany the development of infants’ skin, we have developed an active ingredient from avocado cake, according to optimised, secured and ecodesigned process, in compliance with our sustainable policy. The patented natural ingredient, avocado perseose (AP), is a rare 7-carbon sugar (perseitol and mannoheptulose) concentrate whose molecular structure is in total affinity with the skin. Indeed, among other sugars, only AP presented such range of activity and also a good tolerance.
