Two wins for Sederma’s Crystalide

After having received the PCHi Fountain Award for Moisturising/Hydration Active Ingredient in February, Crystalide just won the 2019 Ringier Technology Innovation Award under the skin care category.


New and improved

Inaugurated by Ringier Trade Media in 2006, this contest aims to reward individuals and companies who have introduced and developed a new idea, a new methodology, a new product or a new technology for manufacturing production efficiency, cost effectiveness, user convenience, which might result in energy saving and more responsible clean manufacturing in the industry.

‘This award is a fantastic recognition of the intense efforts our teams make to conceive distinctive and high quality concepts while minimising social and environmental impacts,’ says Olga Gracioso, Sederma marketing director. Sederma is a Croda company.

This innovative RSPO mass balance bio-highlighter peptide, especially developed to achieve long-term translucent glass-like skin, was recognised as the perfect marriage between technology, trend and sustainability.


Crystalide belongs to a third generation of cosmetic peptides that offer the best activity/structure relationship possible for an increased bioavailability and efficiency. A full range of studies demonstrated this unique peptide’s ability to exert a holistic activity in the epidermis, from the deep layers to the skin surface: It induces the chaperone protein α-crystallin to preserve skin transparency while its soft-polish effect reveals a uniform glow. This IECIC approved peptide has also been demonstrated to exert an epigenetic regulation leading to a harmonious skin maturation and improvement of the skin surface quality.
