Prolevis, Croda’s new skin care ingredient

Croda launches Prolevis for instantly smoother skinCroda, a global speciality chemical company, has launched Prolevis, a new high molecular weight protein hydrolysate. The ingredient is said to be able to instantly smooth the skin, visibly reducing the appearance of surface wrinkles and imperfections.

Picture perfect skin

While consumers are increasingly aware of the ageing effects of their daily routines, for many the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles is too late. The rising popularity of the selfie is also placing increasing scrutiny on appearances. Photo-shopped images are seen to be driving the desire for picture perfect skin at all times, and consumers everywhere are looking to minimise the micro-signs of ageing.

Ideal for anti-ageing claims

During testing, up to 75 per cent of consumers highlighted that Prolevis gave them instantly smoother looking skin making it an obvious choice for skin care formulations.
