SupplySide West Expo is the largest trade show for professionals in the dietary supplement, beverage, functional food, personal care and sports nutrition industries
PhytoGaia is set to debut its clean and branded ingredients –TocoGaia and STGaia at the SupplySide West 2022 Trade Show in Las Vegas. SupplySide West Expo is the largest trade show for professionals in the dietary supplement, beverage, functional food, personal care and sports nutrition industries.
STGaia is a new and novel synergistic combo of natural squalene and tocotrienol complex (the first of its kind in the market) specifically developed for oral and topical skin beauty (skin nutrition and anti-aging). Squalene derived from shark liver is widely used in topical cosmetic products for its many skin beneficial effects.
Tocotrienols, on the other hand and often touted as the ‘super vitamin E’, has a significant body of science/evidence for skin nutrition and anti-aging properties. While squalene and tocotrienols are used widely and individually in the topical and oral cosmetics products, they are not in a natural synergistic combination yet. As such, STGaia is the first natural plant-based extract with these two synergistic phytonutrients together as a complex.
Both TocoGaia (tocotrienols) and STGaia (squalene & tocotrienols) are extracted from sustainably sourced palm fruits through physical processes without the use of any harmful solvents and chemicals as well as without any methyl ester residue (non-biodiesel route). These branded ingredients are free from carcinogenic contaminants such as dioxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) – meeting the stringent European Legislations – commission regulation (EU) 2015/1933.
Currently, there are several ongoing human clinical trials on TocoGaia and STGaia for wound healing, immunomodulatory protection, skin nutrition, nutrigenomics and sport endurance
TocoGaia and STGaia are available in various forms such as oil suspension, water dispersible powder, self-emulsifying liquid suspension – to cater various applications. And for the first time, PhytoGaia will launch its free-flowing beadlets and mini-tablets of TocoGaia and STGaia. All of these products will be featured at PhytoGaia’s Booth No: 7325 on 2-3 November.
