Plant Advanced Technologies (PAT) will present HydraQueen Exudactive, its new active cosmetic ingredient, at the Cosmet’Agora trade show on January 16 and 17, 2024, in Paris. Dedicated to repairing the skin barrier, this plant active ingredient inaugurates the launch of the company’s new Exudactive line.

The French company specializing in the discovery and production of rare – usually inaccessible – active plant compounds for cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and fine chemicals markets is launching HydraQueen Exudactive, a new moisturizing active ingredient dedicated to the restoration of the skin’s barrier function and the protection of sensitive skin. It has also demonstrated antioxidant and anti-radical activities, as well as antipollution and energizing benefits.

A bounty of secondary metabolites
Extracted from meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) roots, a traditional European medicinal plant known for its many biological properties, HydraQueen Exudactive was developed using PAT’s aeroponic growing and plant optimization techniques. According to the company, this multiplied by 82 the active ingredient’s content in secondary metabolites.

In vivo and in vitro efficacy tests have demonstrated the numerous benefits of this natural active ingredient for the skin. According to PAT, HydraQueen Exudactive helps to: restore the fragile balance of the skin’s barrier function (+52% on D14); to defend the skin against pollution (TEER +17% on stressed mature skin), dehydration and environmental stress; to maintain internal hydration (+60% on day 14) and to protect against external irritants; and to repair and strengthen sensitive skin.
