Barley TONIQ® is Full Circle’s new ultra-soothing active, made from by-products of beer production.
This ingredient has been developed to provide to reduce skin redness and soothe irritation, even at low concentration levels. This is due to its richness in polysaccharides, proteins, polypeptides, minerals and amino acids which help to maintain hydration and support overall skin health.
A specific in vivo study demonstrates how Barley TONIQ®, used in a concentration range between 1% and 3%, helps to reduce skin erythema in 30 minutes after a single application, even at the lowest use level. Furthermore the study shows how the active continues to soothe skin and reduce redness by up to 23% even two hours after the application.
Barley TONIQ® is ideal for sensitive and reactive skins. It is particularly recommended in a wide variety of skincare and body care applications.
And besides, if also Platone wrote: “He was a wise man who invented beer”, why we should not be equally wise using beer for cosmetic?
