ReskiLab cooperated in the development of a new cosmetic ingredient based on biotechnologically produced moss cells for a novel anti-aging and moisturizing concept with the Swiss company Mibelle Biochemistry. A new product for skin care will be introduced on 16th April 2018, right before the „in-Cosemtics global“ trade fair that will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The new MossCellTec™ Technology was used to develop the active ingredient for MossCellTec™ No. 1. According to in vitro studies, this active ingredient improves cell nucleus health by helping to transport molecules in and out of the cell nucleus, which is important in helping skin adapting to climactic changes. The ingredient in MossCellTec™ No. 1 is on the fair’s Award Shortlist for Best Active Ingredients. Professor Ralf Reski will be in Amsterdam on 16th of April to give a talk about moss biotechnology.
