Pro-Xylane, 7 Years in the Making
Pro-Xylane's Remarkable Anti-Ageing Properties
A Green Chemistry Breakthrough
Pro-Xylane is the first active ingredient to be derived from a green chemistry process and remains a major player when it comes to L'Oréal Laboratories' cutting edge technology. Its origins stem from the synthesis of xylose, a natural sugar sourced from beech trees, hence its eco-friendly reputation.
So, what does 'green chemistry' involve?
- use of a renewable, primary raw material (beech wood),
- synthesis that's limited to a fixed number of steps (two in the case of Pro-Xylane) in order to reduce waste,
- use of water as the solvant.
