Biesterfeld and Sytheon strengthen their collaboration in Europe

Biesterfeld Spezialchemie is extending its sales partnership with Sytheon Ltd. to Germany, Russia and Benelux. As a result of the very successful sales cooperation in Spain, Biesterfeld is strengthening its partnership with Sytheon in Europe and expanding its extensive product portfolio by adding a unique range of proprietary and patented active ingredients for the cosmetics industry

The portfolio focusses especially on nature-inspired active ingredients. The highly defined products are designed for maximum safety and effectiveness. The fields of competencies mainly target problem skin (acne & hyperpigmentation), skin aging, sun protection and skin hydration.
Sytenol® A is the natural alternative to retinol, with much better skin tolerance, hydrolytical stability and absence of phototoxicity. As an active ingredient, it acts as an anti-oxidant and is ideal for acne-prone skin and anti-ageing products.
Synastol® TC is a water-soluble active ingredient suitable for certified natural cosmetics products. The raw material, based on a famous ayurvedic plant Terminalia Chebula, is a global anti-aging active thanks to its anti-glycation and glycation reversal properties.
The portfolio's HydraSynol™ IDL and HydraSynol™ DOI isosorbides are oil-soluble moisture boosters issued from green chemistry. Using different pathways (stimulation of Aquaporins-3 for HydraSynol DOI and of the filaggrin process for HydraSynol IDL), they help to build up the skin's natural protective barrier and re-establish the natural water homeostasis of the skin.
Synoxyl® HSS is an effective photo stabilizer for photo-sensitive ingredients such as dyes, fragrances and UV filters. Particularly, it was demonstrated to have an in-vivo SPF boosting effects of at least 50% for both organic & inorganic sunscreens.
Synovea® HR is a safe & effective brightener that works on 8 targets of the melanogenesis pathway. It is also available in a synergistic liquid blend, Asyntra® SL that combines hexylresorcinol and Synovea® EL (INCI: Ethyl Linoleate), a lipid-soluble form of Linoleic acid well described in the literature for reducing hyperpigmentation.

"Sytheon's highly effective and high purity active ingredients have enriched our existing portfolio, which is already extensive and interesting. We are very pleased that we can now extend our existing collaboration with Sytheon to another five countries. Our sales team has the expertise needed, to tell our customers about the many different ways in which these active ingredients can be used", explained Bettina Heick, Market Manager Personal Care, Biesterfeld Spezialchemie.
Francois Marchio, Managing Director Sytheon, added: "In Biesterfeld, we have found a European partner that knows and understands how to promote high tech products, and has the technical expertise for supporting customers development projects."
