Pleiotanicals® are unique products designed around the benefits of “pleiotropic” multifunctional bio-molecules derived from natural sources. These molecules are rendered from their source using Biocogent’s proprietary HEDI® process technology. This process makes it possible to create a product containing all cellular and membrane bound constituents, essentially creating a “liquid whole plant” with unsurpassed performance.
Supercritical Fluid Extract (SCFE) of Echinacea Purpurea
Volpura® is a sculpting and volumizing ingredient produced from Echinacea Purpurea through a Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) process that renders meaningful levels of the most lipophilic compounds found in the plant. Its efficacy smoothing expression lines and wrinkles is illustrated with high quality images. Volpura® is recommended for firming and plumping facial products. Also suitable for body care applications (hands, breast, etc.). Available in both water and oil miscible bases.
Proprietary extraction of Epimedium Sagittatum
An anti-blemish ingredient that limits the burden of biofilm-resident C. acnes, which is particularly abundant in blemished skin. Biofilm is a secreted matrix that protects embedded bacteria from germicidal exposures, induces comedone formation, and increases inflammatory tissue damage. Additionally, Grandiciin® directly counters inflammation, thereby providing an extra layer of protection against tissue damage and scarring in severely blemished skin.
Ocimum Sanctum (aka Tulsi) Leaf Extract
A proprietary extract of Ocimum sanctum (a plant used in Ayurvedic medicine), also known as Holy Basil that has been optimized to concentrate key active components that target the damaging effects of pollution in skin. This highly enriched extract significantly reduces the secretion of key inflammatory mediators from epidermal keratinocytes when stressed with IFN-γ/MDP or particulate (pollution) matter (PM 2.5).
Açai Fruit Extract, Pomegranate Fruit Extract
The HEDI® extraction used to prepare this efficacious super-fruit extract permits the isolation of pleiotropic actives that have both antioxidant and protective activity. Ellagicin® helps prevent damage caused by environmental and proteolytic induced stress on some of the structural elements of the skin.
Clove Flower Extract
A proprietary extract of clove flowers that contains natural gallate-based pleiotropic compounds such as Tellimagrandin I and Casuarictin. It showed remarkable anti-aging performance throughout series of efficacy tests. Tellirictin® inhibits oxidative stress, prevents ECM damage caused by Elastase and MMP’s, and inhibits Tyrosinase activity as efficiently as Arbutin.
Green Tea Extract
Proprietary isolate produced using HEDI® technology that captures both, hydrophilic and hydrophobic ingredients found in green tea leaves including anti-oxidant polyphenols and Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). Scavenox® contains 600-700% of the key compounds found in standard brewed tea. Helps prevent damage caused by environmental and proteolytic induced
stress. Scavenox® performs as a consistent long-lasting source of antioxidant and skin soothing activity.
