A spice to mimic the properties of botox
Created from Zanthoxylum bungeanum, commonly known as Sichuan pepper, Zanthalene is a spice-derived cosmetic ingredient capable of acting on neuromuscular communication within the skin structure, providing soothing benefits.
According to a Consumer Marketing Insights (CMI) study for Givaudan, 86% of consumers are currently interested in beauty products containing natural ingredients that help soothe skin discomfort while smoothing it out for a botox-like effect.
Zanthalene is extracted from the fruit husks of the Sichuan pepper using super critical CO2. Its effectiveness has been proven in several clinical studies.
