Syensqo unveils range of biomimetic natural ceramides ‘Cerafy’ for skin care

Following the recent acquisition of JinYoung Bio, a specialty cosmetic ingredients supplier based in South Korea, Syensqo launches Cerafy, a range of biomimetic natural ceramides for skin care and hair care applications.

The launch of Cerafy demonstrates Syensqo’s commitment to rapidly grow its Beauty Care business and portfolio toward more natural specialty skin care solutions.

Cerafy Pure NPo, the first product in the range, is a pure ceramide 3 solution that addresses the decrease in natural ceramide levels within the skin. It helps protect skin against dryness and prevents premature aging by revitalizing the skin’s barrier function.

“Ceramides are pivotal in maintaining the skin’s integrity, acting as a protective barrier in the outermost layer of the skin to lock in moisture and shield against environmental damage,” said Léa Seidenbinder, Global Skin Care Marketing Manager at Syensqo. “With Cerafy, we enable formulators to develop responsible and personalized skin care routines that help restore, protect and maintain the skin's beauty and health.”

Cerafy is produced through a unique fermentation process that aligns with the focus of Syensqo’s Renewable Materials and Biotechnology Growth Platform. The platform leverages biotechnologies as an enabler to develop renewable carbon-based and safe chemistry to accelerate the transformation toward sustainable and circular solutions.

Natural ceramides are also key active ingredients for hair care and skin cleansing formulations. To that end, Syensqo will focus its research and innovation efforts on further developing the Cerafy range over the coming months.
