Independent European manufacturer and distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients for the personal care industry, Cornelius, has announced it is now distributing PEPTILIUM®, the latest anti-ageing skincare solution from its principal partner, SILAB.  

PEPTILIUM® is a plant-based ingredient derived from the upcycled by-product of cranberries, offering formulators the richness and diversity of its natural biopeptides to provide a cross-functional anti-ageing performance. Natural peptides, like those found in PEPTILIUM®, are valuable allies in anti-ageing cosmetics and are favoured among personal care formulators for their outstanding efficacy. 

PEPTILIUM® is rich in natural biopeptides which are purified to 95%, providing a high-performance ingredient that is safe and obtained from a traceable and responsible supply chain that respects sustainable development practices. 

Sarah Smith, Principal Relationship Manager at Cornelius, commented: “With natural anti-ageing products continuing to grow in popularity, PEPTILIUM® is genuinely a next-generation ingredient that is proven to work on a wide range of skin types. The pandemic has placed copious amounts of stress on consumers, and PEPTILIUM® is an innovative solution that enables them to feel good in their skin again while boosting radiance. 

“Having demonstrated its efficacy in clinical studies, PEPTILIUM® presents a fantastic opportunity for brands looking to expand their natural anti-ageing skincare range for 2021 and beyond to deliver quality and innovation through their ranges.” 

(The figures hereafter (22% and 17%) are from the study on Caucasian panel, so I’ve rewritten this sentence to correspond to reality): 

With cosmetic benefits evaluated on both Caucasian and Asian skins, the patented ingredient showcased a 22% reduction in wrinkles and a 17% increase in radiance after only 21 days. Further clinical studies at 21 days and 42 days demonstrated a faster and stronger radiance and anti-wrinkle response in comparison to retinol without the negative side effects.

Sarah further commented: “Cornelius is proud to be working with the cutting-edge technology from SILAB that not only has excellent clinical results but is sourced in a traceable and responsible way. The company’s reputation for excellence, research, development and high-quality natural ingredients is why PEPTILIUM® is an outstanding choice for brands that specialise in high-performance skincare. Trust has never been more important for consumers – they want assurance that their purchases will do what they claim while respecting the planet. With PEPTILIUM®, supplied by Cornelius, formulators can access a proven ingredient for their new product development and really capture attention on the crowded personal care and cosmetics aisles.”
