Application of the TSRI’s Award-winning OGG1 in Foundation for Filter-effect Finish

The Taiwan Sugar Research Institute (TSRI) has achieved great success! TSRI won the bronze medal award in the 2023 invention competition of the Taiwan Innotech Expo for the project entitled "OGG1 Powdered Composition and the Purpose." OGG1 is a kind of DNA enzyme that is obtained through special purification, freezing and drying for maximized benefits. TSRI makes full use of its astonishing skincare benefits, adding the ingredient to TSRI's "Orchid Extreme Fit Moist Compact," a hybrid beauty product that blurs the line between makeup and skincare. Giving you a fresh complexion and making skin glow, like a filter effect.

TSRI has embarked on a years-long study to develop OGG1, a DNA enzyme. It is the first-ever human OGG1 created using genetic engineering, and has been proven to repair the skin damage caused by UV rays and free radicals. TSRI uses the patented technique to powderize OGG1 for easier storage and special treatment for high activity, making it a perfect ingredient in beauty and biomedical products. In comparison with other products, which are derived from plants, planktons and algae, TSRI's OGG1 is skin-friendlier and has remarkable protection, nourishing and repairing effects. Being listed in INCI and protected by the invention patent of Taiwan, the ingredient has been awarded again.

For optimum benefits and characteristics of OGG1, TSRI cooperates with a world-renowned Japan makeup brand and adopts the liquid-drying method to develop "Orchid Extreme Fit Moist Compact SPF20" collectively. In addition to our core ingredients (orchid extract and OGG1), plant-derived squalene and vitamin E, titanium dioxide as a physical sunscreen is also infused in the foundation to effectively block UVB and some UVA rays, and protect the skin gently without causing irritation or allergic reactions. The product is of high safety and stability. 

TSRI adds that Orchid Extreme Fit Moist Compact SPF20 serves as a great example of cooperation between the industry and academia. We use the premium ingredients to create the safest and most effective beauty products. The foundation provides light and weightless makeup, while mattifying pores and blemishes. Silky in texture, the foundation can nourish your skin and make your skin glow from the inside out. 2 shades (OC-10 and PK-10) are available now.
