Expanscience transforms its active ingredient COLLAGENEER® into CO2LLAGENEER® Bio*

Expanscience announces an organic version of one of its flagship active ingredients: CO2LLAGENEER® Bio, an anti-ageing, remodelling and firming active ingredient.

“At Expanscience, our environmental commitment is at the heart of our approach. With CO2LLAGENEER® Bio, we combine innovation, naturality and sustainability to offer our consumers an even more responsible beauty solution that is kind to the skin and the planet,” says Armelle Le Peniec, Director of Cosmetic Active Ingredients at Laboratoires Expanscience.

CO2LLAGENEER® Bio: an active ingredient 100% made in France, certified organic and upcycled
A member of the UEBT (Union for EthicalBiotrade) since 2011, Expanscience takes a continuous improvement approach by relocating the sourcing and revising the extraction process of one of its flagship active ingredients to meet the growing expectations of consumers, concerned with the origin and impact of cosmetic products.
This has given rise to CO2LLAGENEER® Bio, a 95.4% organic version certified by Ecocert Greenlife according to the COSMOS standard, obtained by a supercritical CO2 extraction process. CO2LLAGENEER® Bio is based on a concentration of lupeol, extracted from French sweet white lupine seeds from western France. This active molecule is then combined with organic oleic sunflower oil, sourced in France, thereby offering an active ingredient 100% made in France, aligned with expectations for local and more responsible consumption.
In addition, CO2LLAGENEER® Bio is part of an upcycling and zero-waste approach, as it is derived from a co-product of the food industry.
These changes reaffirm Expanscience’s commitment to more sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices.


Unchanged efficacy: CO2LLAGENEER® Bio improves skin elasticity and remodels facial contours
In addition to its enviromentally and socially-responsible qualities, CO2LLAGENEER® Bio maintains its proven efficacy. Specifications remain the same, providing continuity in terms of product benefits.1
In-vitro tests demonstrate the effects of the active ingredient as well-ageing, stimulating collagen synthesis to improve skin elasticity, remodel and firm areas prone to sagging. The active ingredient stimulates the production of quality collagen by activating the HSP47 (Heat Shock Protein) chaperone protein, thus contributing to its organisation and optimal structure.
CO2LLAGENEER® Bio represents an active ingredient that combines naturality and efficacy, thus meeting the expectations of consumers looking for certified-organic and environmentally-friendly products.
