Frost & Sullivan Lauds Symrise for Its Unique Eyelash Enhancing Offering -- SymPeptide® 226 EL

Innovative SymPeptide® 226 EL Offers Superior Eyelash Enhancement, Supporting Increased Bioavailability, Faster Results and the Growth of Real Lashes

LONDON--(Marketwire - Jan 20, 2012) - The 2011 Frost & Sullivan European Product Differentiation Excellence Award in the Personal Care Market is presented to Symrise for SymPeptide® 226 EL. This unique product has proven its efficacy in increasing the appearance of volume, length and thickness of eyelashes.

SymPeptide® 226 EL was developed by Symrise with the help of its partner Therapeutic Peptide Inc. (TPI) in 2009. The product offers superior eyelash enhancement, faster results and growth of real lashes. It is colorless-to-beige, odorless and easy to apply.

The use of SymPeptide® 226 EL ensures naturally beautiful and plentiful eyelashes, making the product unique in the market. Clinical studies show that it improves appearance and volume within one week.

"SymPeptide® 226 EL is a lipo-oligopeptide possessing 5 amino acids and a fatty acid. The attached lipid promotes deeper penetration into the skin and hair follicles," notes Frost & Sullivan Vice President of Chemicals Shomik Majumdar. "Its lipophilic nature makes it highly effective, enabling it to easily reach the target site."

The peptide in SymPeptide® 226 EL supports the production of Keratin which is the major component found in hair and eyelashes. Keratin has been found to fight signs of ageing and inflammation, while also acting as an eyelash appearance enhancer.

Most eyelash enhancers add volume to the eyelashes -- temporarily. They also may have side effects including redness of the eye and skin discoloration.

"In contrast, SymPeptide® 226 EL does not cause skin irritation or discoloration," says Dr. Sujatha Vijayan, Senior Research Analyst, Food, Drug and Cosmetics. "It truly enhances the appearance of eyelashes and not just through conventional physical thickening."

The Product Differentiation Excellence Award is presented to the company that has demonstrated excellence in developing unique product features and functionality, in achieving superior customization and in matching target market needs. The award lauds the brand perception of the uniqueness of the product.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognises companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
