  • DEINOVE launches the production of a new batch of Phyt-N-Resist® to meet the needs of its distributors and future customers.
  • Several projects for the development of cosmetic products containing the first DEINOVE’s active made of Phytoene are underway.

DEINOVE (Euronext Growth Paris: ALDEI), a French biotech company that uses a disruptive approach to develop innovative antibiotics and bio-based active ingredients for cosmetics and nutrition, announces the production of a new industrial batch of Phyt-N-Resist®, its first proprietary cosmetic active ingredient, to meet the needs of its distributors and future customers.

Phyt-N-Resist® is a colorless carotenoid with clinically proven antioxidant and regenerative properties. This first 100% pure Phytoene is an anti-aging active ingredient whose mechanism of action reveals a prime target for cell regeneration: laminin, a protein that links the different types of collagen and contributes to the adhesion of the epidermis to the dermis.

DEINOVE has developed an exclusive process for the bioproduction and extraction of Phytoene. 100% naturally-sourced and vegan, produced exclusively in France, it is derived from fermentation of plant sugars by the extremophile microorganism Deinococcus geothermalis. Phyt-N-Resist® has been sampled by nearly a hundred cosmetic brands and incorporated into various skincare formulations, demonstrating its potential in several strategic markets. The partners for distribution of this active ingredient are Solvay in the Americas and Asia, and Univar in EMEA.

"Phyt-N-Resist® has been tested in different formulations and several tangible projects for the development of cosmetic products containing this active ingredient have been identified. Our distributors work closely with these brands located in different geographical areas. This new industrial batch is essential to address market needs and supply future customers" says Coralie MARTIN, Marketing Manager at DEINOVE.
