New natural, botanical ingredient from Givaudan Active Beauty tackles oily skin

Givaudan Active Beauty has launched Mangixyl, a powerful microbiome-friendly cosmetic ingredient with proven efficacy targeting oily skin through sebum regulation.

Created from responsibly sourced mango leaves and designed with inclusive beauty in mind, this sustainable innovation encapsulates the Company Purpose of ‘creating for happier, healthier lives with love for nature’.

Sustainably sourced

The mango leaves are sourced in collaboration with the Association Bendia, based in the village of Koro, Burkina Faso, in the heart of West Africa. Run by volunteers, this women-led initiative empowers women to find employment by matching them with suitable job opportunities in the leaf-harvesting process.

After harvesting, the mango leaves undergo a green fractionation process to produce Mangixyl. This fully natural, microbiome-friendly active ingredient regulates sebum production (down to 15.9% after one month depending on complexion) to relieve the discomfort caused by oily skin – a widespread concern for consumers around the world. Our double-blind tests versus placebo studies, encompassing three different skin ethnicities (African, Asian and Caucasian) have also shown a 49.5% improvement in sebum quality. Reflecting Givaudan Active Beauty’s commitment to inclusive beauty, Mangixyl is a universal, genderless ingredient that is suitable for all age groups and skin tones.

Secure supply chain

Head of procurement Fine Fragrances & Active Beauty, Maxence Billas, says: “Mangixyl is a great example of how we work closely with communities to source ingredients in a responsible way, with maximum respect for people and the environment. This approach not only helps us to support these communities; it also makes our supply chain more secure and gives our customers access to high-quality, responsibly sourced products at a time when sustainability and traceability are top of mind for consumers.”

Head of Active Beauty, Laurent Bourdeau, says: “The creation of Mangixyl shows how we combine a high level of scientific innovation with trending consumer insights to develop products that are not only good for people, but also good for the planet. Our Purpose remains our guiding star as we continue to develop sustainable new products for our customers and their consumers.”

The local agent for Givaudan Active Beauty is The Care Co.

Natural botanical actives

Mangixyl joins our growing portfolio of natural botanical actives, and features in a marketing concept called S3D Womango. This lightweight, mattifying day cream for all consumers also contains Bamboosilk A, Curbilene and CristalHyal. Thanks to its three levels of action, S3D Womango immediately reduces shine, balances the skin’s moisture levels and sebum production all day long, and reduces excess sebum over time without over-drying.
