For 2022, the influential Pantone® Color Institute has defined PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri as the color of the year. It’s a new violet-infused blue, a courageous color that displays sprightly the advent of increasing technologies in our daily lives and encourages bold inventiveness.

As an ingredients designer, we have selected our cosmetic active ingredient of the year based on Pantone®’s color, its meaning and our own understanding of new consumer insights in beauty.

Indeed, our surveys reveal that during the intense periods of isolation and health uncertainties, consumers have heavily relied on the digital and scientific fields, leading to an interest in technologies, even in cosmetics.

Therefore, our cosmetic active ingredient of the year 2022 is CELTOSOME™ Eryngium maritimum.

A MATCH WITH THE VERY PERI COLOR

On the Brittany coast, grows the Eryngium maritimum, also called the Sea Holly. It’s the sapphire of Brittany’s dunes: adorned with a violet blue flower, it’s a precious plant and it’s protected. Indeed, the plant shows a strong adaptability to survive in a sandy environment with a high salinity; but due to high human presence in sea shore, it has now to be protected and cannot be picked up.

A MATCH WITH THE VERY PERI COLOR

BEYOND COLOR, A BIOTECH-BASED ACTIVE INGREDIENT

Thanks to its inventiveness and its appetite for technologies, BiotechMarine laboratories make it possible to explore the abilities of the Sea Holly and to offer it to the cosmetic industry.

They have creatively developed the CELTOSOME™ technology. It allows the cultivation of dedifferentiated plant cells in bioreactor in a sustainable way, without harvesting the plant and impacting biodiversity. Moreover, dedifferentiated cells behave like a ‘molecule factory’, waiting for the appropriate culture conditions to synthesize targeted active ingredients, in potentially different compositions to the original plant.
In this way, we obtain a concentrated active ingredient, CELTOSOME™ Eryngium maritimum, with a specific composition in phenolic acids and flavonols, for skin renewal and firmness.

This is how our biotechnology unlocks the potential of plant treasures to empower beauty.
