Sederma, who creates, makes and sells active ingredients as part of the Croda Group, has just been awarded in China with the PCHi Fountain Award for Outstanding Active Ingredient for CitystemTM, its pollution-defence product.
Its superior performance in pollution protection has been recognised as a perfect solution to fulfil Chinese consumer needs in their day-to-day fight against visible and invisible pollution damage to the skin.
“Citystem has been developed to offer the most adapted response to skin pollution-induced concerns expressed by consumers all over the world. We are delighted to see that our efforts have paid off” said Olga Gracioso, Sederma’s Marketing Director.
This natural active ingredient provides a new approach to pollution effects on skin, with visible proven results: the complexion looks refreshed and purified, the skin grain is refined for a soft and smooth feel.
Gracioso added: “This award is a fantastic recognition of the know-how developed at IRB by Sederma to unlock nature to power cosmetics of the future”.
Additionally, to further the fight against pollution, CitystemTM is developed from Sederma’s eco-designed HTNTM plant cell culture process. It complies with the Chinese regulation for cosmetic ingredients.
