Exsymol announces the launch of its nutrition activity during the celebration of its 50 years

Exsymol, a supplier of active ingredients for 50 years, and recognized worldwide for its expertise in silicium and its resulting range of active ingredients, silanols, is launching a new nutrition activity. With its expertise on the skin and its biological mechanisms, Exsymol wishes to develop a wide range
of active ingredients to meet the growing demand for food supplements.

This diversification of activities comes 3 years after the start of the process of transformation and reorganization of Exsymol, under the leadership of Pierre BONDON, its Deputy Chairman. The idea is to rely on the expertise and experience of the evaluation, marketing and communication teams, among others, to invest in this new market.

A GLOW and RELAX routine through the presentation of a box of 4 products

The new nutrition activity was launched during the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary, during the scientific seminar, with the distribution of a box presenting an In and Out routine based on 4 products formulated with Exsymol ingredients, both cosmetic and food.

The GLOW routine composed of a serum and a skin detox supplement, both based on carcinine (Alistin for the cosmetic ingredient and Glycoless for the food): consumer tests have proven that the combination of these 2 products induced softer skin for 82.5% of users, brighter skin for 70% and shinier hair for 71.1% of them.

The second routine, RELAX, is based on silicon with Algisium, Exsymol’s flagship active ingredient, formulated in an awakening mist and a food supplement for overall skin and hair well-being.

According to consumers, the skin is softer (80%), better hydrated (74.4%), the combination of the 2 products induces a general feeling of well-being for 80% of users!

This range of products aimed at making a concrete proposal for the use of Exsymol ingredients was presented as a Monegasque routine, between fast and slow life, combining the benefits of hydration and complexion luminosity.

To learn all about this routine, a new video from EXSYMOL TV is available below:

For any information on this new nutrition activity and the ingredients available, you can contact the Exsymol sales team at customerservice@exsymol.com.

EXSYMOL in the top 10 thanks to its scientific innovation on the pore!
04 November 2021

The poster presented by EXSYMOL at the last IFSCC 2021 congress (which takes place virtually from Cancun) is one of the 10 posters selected by the jury (out of more than 200 posters presented), for their high level and scientific expertise. This award was unveiled by Frédéric Leroy during the closing ceremony of the congress at the end of October.

This selection was obtained thanks to the poster entitled “Visible facial pores: new insights for their assessment and tightening treatment” presenting an original expertise of the pore.

This innovative approach demonstrated the key role of the MAGP-1 glycoprotein in the organization of the network of collagen and elastin fibers around the pore, playing an architectural supporting role. Exclusive biomechanical studies carried out in partnership with the company Biomeca in Lyon have uncovered new data, particularly in the understanding of the mechanism of pore enlargement and sagging induced by aging.

communication makes it possible to partially reveal the work carried out by
EXSYMOL on this theme. It suggests that a new active derived from Exsymol’s
signature technology, silanols technology, and with specific activity on the
structures surrounding the pore, will soon be unveiled.

Dear Customer, dear Partner,

Following the latest governmental instructions due to the rapidly spreading epidemic of Covid-19, we need to implement a safeguarding plan in these difficult times.  

Therefore, in order to protect our employees and their relatives, to face this important challenge, we have decided the following :

  • The company will reduce its activities this Friday evening, the 20th of March. 
  • We have set up teleworking from home for a limited number of people from the sales, scientific and general services. By maintaining this activity, we will be able to ensure partial operations and prepare for the reopening.

We will stay mobilized for our customers and partners and will continue monitoring the situation and its evolution. We look forward to resuming a normal activity with you as soon as possible.

Please take care and stay safe,


Pierre Bondon

Earth’s day : EXSYMOL’s commitments
22 April 2019

During Earth’s day, Exsymol highlights its CSR policy and commitments.


Christophe Paillet is now director of marketing & communication on the Executive Committee of Exsymol.
02 April 2019

This appointment echoes the reorganization being put in place by senior management. More than 25 years ago, in possession of a degree in chemical engineering and a doctorate in the discipline, Christophe Paillet entered as a research manager within the Monegasque SME specializing in assets, including silicon-based , then evolved into development-type positions and then listened to the client until this new appointment.

Active news 2019: Black sun, microbiome and acne, brightening innovation, stress and oily skin.
02 April 2019

By continuing our research on the effect of psychological stress on the skin, we have observed that cortisol (stress hormone) increases the amount of sebum it produces. Stress is therefore a major player in pathologies such as acne.

Cells producing sebum when exposed to cortisol (stress)
Our active decreases sebum production in sebocytes exposed to cortisol. Sebum is in green and cell nuclei are in blue (DAPI).

Protect the skin against the effects of the Black Sun! This concept comes from the fact that by absorbing UV, melanin will release free radicals that will damage the DNA several hours after exposure to the sun.

Reducing the production of melanin appears to be a very bad idea when we think about the well being of the skin … Unless this asset is also a photoprotecteur

New 2019 Organic Silicium Secrets – Finding Fibroblast / Structural Fiber Voltage
02 April 2019

Our research on silanols has made a major advance in identifying the action of organic silicon on the biomechanical properties of the skin.

Organic silicium improves the stretching and attachment abilities of fibroblasts to collagen fibers. Actin is here in red (rhodamine-phalloidin) and the nuclei appear in blue (DAPI).

Our recent work has shown that in addition to stimulating the activity of all skin cells, silicon allows fibroblasts to retain their ability to stretch, attach, and contract. The fibroblasts thus reorganize the collagen fibers of the dermis optimally and thus ensure good firmness and elasticity to the skin.

New clinical evaluations: after shave, anti-aging, soothing, moisturizing, capillary quality, anti fall …
19 March 2019
CAPALGIN – prevention is better than cure …

Capalgin, our Chondrus crispus extract, has a unique mechanism of action that allows it to increase the hair growth rate while preventing hair loss with more hair in the anagen phase. In addition, the density of the hair is increased and their quality (thickness) is also improved.

DSB C – calmly reinforce against sources of ignition

DSB C is a silanol that has an organic silicon core combined with salicylic acid for anti-aging and soothing benefits. Here, men and women shaved to cause recurrent inflammation. D.S.B.C is able to soothe and instantly moisturize the skin. In the long term and because of the restructuring capabilities of silicon, the skin is restructured and prepared, which decreases inflammation and dehydration day after day. This effect is all the more visible as the treatment is long.
