The news is in full swing and the themes are numerous. Among them, these is one that is starting to become dominant: the microbiome, through its protection, its restoration or what so ever. The proposals are starting to swarm. One of them specifically catched me: Givaudan’s Yogurtene Balance.
I don’t want to criticize or discuss this ingredient, which must do its job properly. Just a short comeback, not to say that it was better before, just to remember.
At this time, I was an young chemist, using my bottom funds to control raw materials in a great brand. Among the ingredients that I controlled, one had intrigued me a lot: Yogurt !!! I can’t not remember it. What was used it for? In the manufacture of one of the leading products of the brand: The Skin Dew. A light emulsion in which was added a large amount of Yogurt.
Yes, already! While the claims were not the same as now, but still !!!!!
This situation will last until the 70’s when the product will be reprocessed with an hydrolyzate of lactic ferments from …… .. Nancy!
