Polynektars®: plant origin cosmetics active ingredients
With its experience and knowledge in plant extraction, Berkem has developed a new range of cosmetics active ingredients: Polynektars®. Rich in polyphenols, these ingredients are 100% plant-origin and preservative-free. Their activities have been proved by several efficiency tests (in vivo, in vitro).
A meticulous plant screening and extraction process enabled to develop four active ingredients: Fresh’ka®, Origa’light®, Myrti'lla® and Ko'zen®.
Our Polynektars® range
> Fresh’ka: plant-origin active ingredient obtained from strawberry plant leaves, rich in polyphenols in particular from the flavonoid family. It brightens the complexion, smoothes skin texture and gently lightens the skin.
This cosmetics ingredient has been developed for dull skins, anti-aging products and for oily skins with dilated pores. The recommended percentage is 0.5%.
> Origa’light: plant-origin active ingredient obtained from oregano leaves, rich in polyphenols in particular from the hydroxycinnamic acid family. It has lightening and antioxidant properties, and a good photostability.

> Myrti'lla: plant-origin active ingredient obtained from bilberry leaves, rich in polyphenols in particular from the chlorogenic acid family. It prevents redness, improves microcirculation and tones capillaries.
Myrti'lla can be used to decrease and prevent redness in anti-redness creams, and skin care products for reactive skins. It can also be incorporated into anti-ageing care products to improve microcirculation and acts on wrinkles and dark circles. The recommended percentage is 0.5%.
