Discover Gattefossé's not-so-secrets to radiant skin with our guide to bodycare that goes beyond the basics. This guide introduces 3 of our plant-based actives, backed by clinical studies performed on the body for effective & transformative bodycare.

In the dynamic bodycare world, consumers seek safe and effective products with clear value propositions. This trend includes niche eco claims like sustainable production, highlighting hero ingredients, and driving an ingredient-led approach. In response, we bring you three carefully substantiated actives for the body: EnergiNius®, Gatuline® In-Tense MB, and EleVastin™.

Let’s dive into each and find the perfect match for your body care needs:

First up, EnergiNius®!

#1. EnergiNius®: Recharge the skin's battery

  • INCI: Fructose (and) Glycerin (and) Water (and) Withania Somnifera Root Extract
  • If Withania somnifera root extract doesn’t ring any bells, then maybe Ashwagandha does! This plant adaptogen is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine
  • Sourced in Oregon, USA
  • Utilizes NaDES (Natural Deep Eutectic Solvent) technology! What does that mean? That this gives us an extremely unique phytochemical composition not attainable with conventional solvent systems
  • Water-soluble, recommended use level: 1-2%
  • Originally launched to protect the skin from screen-emitted light, new substantiation in 2023 shows this active to boost tonicity and vitality (in-vivo, shown on the left)
  • And of course, the claims:
    • Restores skin vitality
    • Improves skin firmness and tonicity
    • Bonus: Protects from screen-emitted light

Looking for an oil-soluble active instead? Next up: Gatuline® In-Tense MB!

#2. Gatuline® In-Tense MB: In-depth remodeling

  • INCI: Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride (and) Acmella Oleracea Extract
  • Acmella oleracea is also called buzz button or electric daisy flower! Did you know, eating this plant will bring numbing and pain-relieving sensations to your mouth?!
  • Sourced from South Africa and Madagascar to secure the supply
  • Oil-soluble, recommended use level: 1% (body), 2% (face)
  • Perfect for body oils
  • In vivo substantiation on the arms, neck, and dĂ©colletĂ©
  • Provides more firmness and tonicity to the body (tested in vivo on the arms pictured to the left)
  • And lastly, the claims:
    • Makes body skin firmer, more tonic
    • Smooths the dĂ©colletĂ© area for a more youthful look
    • Reduces the wrinkled appearance of the face and neck

If neither of those sparked your interest, we’ve got one more for you: EleVastin™!

#3. EleVastin™: Free from gravity

  • INCI: Betaine/Water/Propanediol/Murraya koenigii Stem Extract
  • While Murraya koenigii may not sound familiar, another name for it is the curry leaf stem! This is also widely used in Ayurvedic medicine.
  • The leafy stems of the Murraya koenigii tree are manually harvested from fertilizer-free plots in the preserved environment of La Reunion Island
  • Ideal for body-sculpting creams
  • Water-soluble, recommended use level: 1%
  • And of course, the claims:
