SINO LION's active and functional ingredients were shortlisted in two major categories at the 2024 C&T ALLE AWARDS:

Active Ingredients:

Sino Lion USA’s Evermoist AGG-50/(-50G) was crowned with Most Significant Natural/Bio-derived Active - Ultimate Moisturizer Evermoist AGG-50.

“Very well-researched and efficacious, with detailed in vitro studies showing the effectiveness of 2-α-GG.  There is substantial data showing the application, stability and safety of the active.  This active has huge potential in the skin care industry, commented the judging panel.

The complete summary is as follows:

“Evermoist AGG-50 (Glyceryl Glycoside) is the ultimate moisturizer that is unique, multifunctional and revolutionary for several reasons.  It works at the root cause of dry skin by regulating cellular water circulation from basal layer to stratum corneum via aquaporin protein 3 (AQP3) expression – whereas other moisturizers treat the superficial symptoms of dry skin by either absorbing water from the environment to the stratum corneum, or preventing water from evaporation from the stratum corneum.  The ingredient also strengthens the skin barrier function by up-regulating the expression of barrier-related genes TGM1 and IVL.  Finally, it alleviates skin sensitivity by down-regulating the expression of receptor RPV1, which makes it well-suited for sensitive skin.  This COSMOS-certified, 100% natural origin product is a pure, effective, natural, bio-based and sustainable moisturizer made using biotechnology.  It can be used in a wide range of applications. ”
