CLR Berlin will present its latest innovation, CutiBiome CLR (INCI: Octyldodecanol, Leptospermum Scoparium Branch/Leaf Oil, Piper Nigrum Fruit Extract, Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract) at in-cosmetics Global in Barcelona this year.
The skin microbiota plays a largely positive, but sometimes detrimental role for skin.
Loss of skin health
CutiBiome CLR was developed to anticipate on the ambivalence of members of the skin microbiota implied in the loss of skin health, for instance Cutibacterium acnes. C. acnes is a commensal species, important for skin health. Certain genetic variants (phylotypes) of C. acnes play an important negative role for skin, though, for instance phylotype I-A1.
Growth of pimples reduced dramatically
CutiBiome CLR fully abolishes the film forming activity and significantly inhibits the growth of C. acnes I-A1. Sebum, comedones, pustules and pimples are reduced dramatically, as was confirmed by instrumental determinations and the volunteers who participated in this study themselves. Other in vivo studies showed potent reduction of dandruff. Four weeks of three times weekly use of a hair tonic with CutiBiome CLR lead to similar results to Piroctone Olamine, but clearly outperformed it in reducing scalp oiliness, sensitivity and itch.
