Recently, the new raw material of “hydrolyzed zinc hyaluronate” of global hyaluronic acid giant Bloomage Biotech was successfully filed. Bloomage Biotech uses patented technology to develop “Hydrolyzed Zinc Hyaluronate”, which has the effect of moisturizing and protecting the skin and can be used in personal care products such as masks, essences, creams, toothpaste, mouthwashes, shampoos and so on.
On April 23, Beijing time, the record of cosmetic raw materials of the National Medical Products Administration showed that the new raw materials of Bloomage Biotech “Hydrolyzed Zinc Hyaluronate” that can be used for various skin cosmetics were successfully filed. This is the eighth new cosmetic raw material approved by the National Medical Products Administration in 2022. Since the promulgation of the Regulations on the Supervision and Administration of Cosmetics and the Regulations on the Administration of Registration and Filing Data of New Cosmetic Raw Materials in 2021, 14 new cosmetic raw materials have been filed so far.
As a leading biotechnology enterprise in China, Bloomage Biotech has actively laid out the development of “hydrolyzed zinc hyaluronate” products in the early years. The successful filing of “hydrolyzed zinc hyaluronate” is the first approved “HA+zinc” new raw material for hyaluronic acid in China’s cosmetics industry, and its approval means that the production and operation of “hydrolyzed zinc hyaluronate” raw materials and cosmetics in China are compliant.
Zinc (Zn) is an essential trace element of the human body, widely distributed in the tissues of living organisms and plays an important role in skin diseases, immune function, wound healing, growth and development, hair growth and so on.
“Hydrolyzed zinc hyaluronate” is the perfect combination of HA and zinc, which combines the effects of HA and zinc, while hyaluronic acid also increases the bioavailability of zinc. Bloomage Biotech has developed “hydrolyzed zinc hyaluronate” by patented technology, which has high zinc content, low sodium ion residue and high purity of the product. It has the effect of moisturizing and protecting the skin and can be used for personal care products such as masks, essences, creams, toothpaste, mouthwashes, shampoos and so on.
It is worth noting that Bloomage Biotech has been adhering to the methodology of scientific and technological development for raw material research and innovation, long-term deep ploughing of basic research and applied basic research. In addition to hyaluronic acid and its derivatives, it also has developed dozens of bioactive substances such as Ectoin, ergothioneine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, Biobloom™ ME-1 and so on.
Since the beginning of this year, there have been several Chinese enterprises applying for the record of new raw materials. There are still many instabilities in Chinese raw materials and the basic research can not be completed at once, but it takes many years of accumulation. Now, quality and efficacy are more concerned as the use of high-quality raw materials can produce high-quality cosmetic products.
At present, with the global epidemic coupled with the Russian-Ukrainian war, some imported raw materials are stuck in the customs, resulting in certain production being interrupted, which needs to wait for one or two months until the supply recovers, so the current situation can indeed give China raw material enterprises a certain opportunity for development.
The implementation of China’s Regulations on the Supervision and Administration of Cosmetics has given China’s new raw materials more room to compete with international raw material giants and they are expected to transform the situation that cosmetic raw materials are “monopolized” by international companies.
On the one hand, the international tension and the shortage of raw materials, and on the other hand, China’s policies encourage technological innovation and promote the high-quality development of China’s cosmetics industry. Cosmetic raw material innovation is an indispensable foundation for industrial development and the landing of the new regulations has encouraged the enthusiasm of Chinese enterprises for R&D and innovation and set a direction for the innovation of Chinese cosmetic raw materials.
