Why did you chose to include Avocado Perseose in Mustela Bébé formulations?
Our research has revealed that a baby’s skin contains a precious wealth of original cells at birth. Unique to every individual, these cells last a lifetime, but are extremely vulnerable. After this fundamental discovery, we selected Avocado Perseose® to use in our new Mustela Bébé formulations because it meets the specific needs of a baby’s skin starting at birth and as it matures. It helps develop the skin’s barrier function and preserves its precious wealth of cells by acting as a protective shield against daily stress factors. Avocado Perseose® is also part of a new generation of biomimetic active ingredients. Perfectly suited for the delicate skin of babies, it combines proven effectiveness with a high tolerance factor. Avocado Perseose®’s effectiveness and high tolerance factor has been clinically tested and scientifically proven. Avocado Perseose® is an exclusive and patented active ingredient and only Mustela products offer its unique benefits.

What is a biomimetic active ingredient?
An active ingredient is biomimetic if it complies with the principle of biomimetism, that is, it has an advanced capacity to resemble nature, and to mimic its structure or functioning mechanisms. More specifically in dermo-cosmetic terms, an ingredient is considered to be biomimetic if it naturally has a perfect affinity with the skin and a high tolerance factor. This means it is capable of strengthening the skin's function when it has been weakened and helps it mature and develop without disruption. Avocado Perseose, a unifying active ingredient used in new Mustela Bébé formulations, is a biomimetic active ingredient. It has the same effect on the skin as in its original environment, where it helps fruit grow and ripen.
