The Natpure® Xtra range of botanical actives from Sensient are obtained using the patented PhytoClean™process and have been selected to meet market demand for traceable, safe and standardised extracts for the formulation of clean cosmetic products.
The PhytoClean™ process uses sub-critical water, altering the polarity of water to mimic solvent polarities such as ethanol and acetone. This yields efficient extraction of a broad range of biologically active metabolites with no co-solvent use and limited energy consumption.
Natpure® Xtra Longevity is one of three extracts currently in the range, and is derived from camellia sinensis leaves, ethically sourced from farms in the Nandi Hill (Rift Valley) region of Kenya; an area favorable for tea growing due its altitude, cold climate, and volcanic soil.
Natpure® Xtra Longevity stimulates skin’s defense against oxidative stress to maintain youthful looking skin due to the presence of relatively high concentrations of active molecules such as caffeine, EGCG, catechins, and polyphenols.
Extensive substantiation testing has shown that Natpure® Xtra Longevity helps to repair a disrupted skin barrier and oxidative damage caused by pollution and UV radiation, making it ideal for use in environmental protection and skin rejuvenation applications.
