Univar B.V., a subsidiary of US-based chemical distribution, Univar, is all set to distribute French biotech firm, Deinove’s, Phyt-N-Resist nature-based cosmetic active in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions.
Phyt-N-Resist is a 100% pure phytoene formulation concentrated in organic jojoba oil. A colourless carotenoid obtained through a process of fermentation of natural sugars by the extremophilic bacterium Deinococcus geothermalis, Phytoene helps fight against skin aging by reducing oxidative stress and accelerating skin regeneration. Its efficacy and safety have been successfully demonstrated by in vitro, ex vivo and clinical studies, the companies said.
“We are very pleased that Univar, a leading speciality distributor in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, has chosen Phyt-N-Resist to enhance their portfolio and diversify into cosmetic actives,” said Ms. Coralie Martin, Deinove’s Marketing Director.
“Phyt-N-Resist expands our offering of actives, while complementing our distribution portfolio of functional speciality ingredients,” said Ms. Arnita Wofford, Univar’s head of marketing for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
