BSB Innovation Prize: The Winner is RonaCare® Cyclopeptide-5

Cyclic and innovative: Merck's anti-aging ingredient receives 1st prize in the category of innovative raw material
Innovation was rewarded. Our biomimetic peptide for anti-wrinkle and anti-aging cosmetic products, RonaCare® Cyclopeptide-5 was awarded 1st prize in the category "innovative raw material” during the BSB Innovation Prize ceremonies that took place during this year's In-Cosmetic in Barcelona.
 
RonaCare® Cyclopeptide-5 is the world’s first homodetic cyclic peptide for cosmetic applications. It is designed to fight wrinkles and improves skin elasticity.
Merck’s RonaCare® Cyclopeptide-5 smoothes wrinkles through its innovative molecular design. Cosmetics manufacturers now have access to a powerful ingredient with proven efficacy that promotes the skin cells’ anti-aging process.

This first place award confirms that the skin care benefits, unique ingredient story and desirable galenic form (liposomal encapsulation) of Cyclopetide-5 represent a true break-through which can be easily formulated into innovative (if not award winning) skin care products.
 
RonaCare® Cyclopeptide-5 is the first homodetic cyclic peptide for cosmetic applications. Due to its smart design, RonaCare® Cyclopeptide-5 is highly selectivity for its biological target – integrins at the RGD binding site. Tailor-made to fit specific skin cell surface receptors, it mimics natural communication and repair processes of skin. The innovative cyclic molecular design paves the way to anti-aging efficacy in a new dimension.

Watch out, wrinkles! In vitro tests show that...

...Cyclopeptide-5 inhibits harmful degradation extracellular matrix (ECM) enzymes of proteins like collagenase and elastase – retaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness. It also stimulates the stability of the extracellular matrix by activating fibulin, laminin, and collagen. Cyclopeptide-5 returns to skin its tensile and compressive strength and firmness – The result is a more youthful, smoother appearance .

The BSB Innovation Prize has been awarded annually since 2003 by Consulting and service bureau Dr. Riedel. The prize is highly esteemed in the cosmetics industry and the winners are selected by an independent, international jury.
