Get to know ours: 5 unique cosmetic developments of Russian scientists

Date: February 24, 2024 Time: 09:02:22

It is generally accepted that the Russian cosmetics market is exclusively developments borrowed from large foreign brands: the same formulas and ingredients, only our spill. However, it is not. We’ve compiled five household insights that inspire high hopes for our beauty industry.

This super essence was developed at the end of the Soviet Union by the technologists of the Arkhangelsk algae plant, the only company in Russia that is engaged in the extraction and deep processing of algae. Essence continues to be a bestseller. A 450 ml jar contains 110 kg of raw arctic algae, which grows in the wild waters of the White Sea near Solovki. For cosmetics, it is important that this algae is from the cold sea: unlike its “colleagues” from the southern seas, it accumulates more active substances that moisturize and restore the skin, relieve inflammation, and give a lymphatic drainage effect. Laminaria extract can be added drop by drop to creams, facial and hair masks, toners, scrubs, spa baths, to obtain a pleasant marine aroma and a draining effect. And even gargle with a sore throat.

“The history of seaweed extract began in the 1990s. The Moscow Research Institute of Cosmetology recommended the product as an additive in the cosmetics and perfumery industry, and the All-Russian Research Institute of Fragrances developed formulations for cosmetic products using algae extract: soaps, shampoos, toothpastes. The efficiency of the extract gave it a long life.”

You will not surprise anyone with collagen in cosmetics, but scientists of the Department of Collagen Preparations and Products of the Moscow State Medical University. Sechenov succeeded in creating a protein as close in structure to a human as possible, and even in the last century, research has been going on since 1969. Native triple helix collagen has been used for plastic surgeries and various medical devices, such as sheets for to heal wounds. They are still used at the Emergency Medicine Research Institute. Sklifosovsky, hospitalize them. Burdenko, Institute of Surgery. Vishnevsky. And then Elena Istranova, a candidate of medical sciences, created a line of cosmetic products Medical Collagene 3D based on native collagen. All products are produced in Russia at two sites: at Dmitrov at the “Green Dubrava” pharmaceutical plant and at our own production in Moscow.

“Tri-helix collagen provides hydration, nutrition and lift. And it also affects fibroblasts, connective tissue cells that stimulate recovery and renewal. In other words, the synthesis of your own collagen is launched. As a result – a pronounced anti-aging effect, smooth and moisturized skin.

Botox-effect patches are a patented development of the Russian company Microneedle Industrial, residents of Skolkovo and winners of the Startup Village 2019 competition for technology startups. The main difference from conventional tissue patches is that the composition does not act on the surface, but rather penetrates through the layers of the skin. This is possible thanks to biosoluble hyaluronic acid microneedles.

“Our needles go beyond the stratum corneum, reach the level of the basement membrane and dissolve in the deep layers of the epidermis, inaccessible to superficial cosmetics, due to skin enzymes. In addition, Blom microneedles contain two types of hyaluronic acid (low molecular weight and medium molecular weight), which has a high dissolution rate. At the same time, unlike cosmetic salon procedures, the use of biosoluble microneedling is absolutely painless and safe for home use.”

The world’s first botulinum toxin in liquid form was developed at the pharmaceutical company Innopharm and is produced at the Center. Chumakov, known for its KoviVak and polio vaccines. The peculiarity of the drug is in the liquid form – it is more convenient for doctors and reduces the risk of errors, which is always present when diluting the dry form of botulinum toxin. And the injections are painless. In 2022, for obvious reasons, the drug experienced a renaissance: now more than 1,000 medical centers work on Miotox.

“All our clinical studies were based on the comparison with the gold standard of botulinum therapy, the drug of our American colleagues, and Myotox showed very good results, demonstrating its efficacy and safety.”

Polylactic acid has been used in medicine for more than half a century, and the pharmaceutical company Ingal released the first filler based on it in Russia at the end of 2021. This is an injectable shaping drug called Repart PLA.

Polylactic acid is the strongest stimulator of collagen production. This means that the filler not only gives an external effect, but also fights skin aging from the inside. In addition, the drug is convenient to administer, and the procedure itself is practically painless due to the spherical shape of the microparticles, which easily and quickly penetrate through the needle.

“In the spring of last year, all our warehouses were empty. First, the aesthetic medicine clinics bought all the imported medicines, then they started buying ours. And now, making sure of the quality, they calmly work for them. The reason for the mistrust of the Russian manufacturer is that there were situations when clinics burned down with the use of domestic cosmetic products. But now everything has changed, because it has become evident that there are valuable developments confirmed by clinical studies”.

Sergey Kazakov, Ingal’s chief medical officer.
