TOMSK, Jan 12 – RIA Tomsk. The Xeolab company, which opened production of cosmetics with xenon in
Tomsk, plans to send the first batch of its cream to the USA this year, the
head of the company Ilya Verkhovsky told RIA Tomsk.
It was previously reported that Tomsk specialists have developed a method
of delivery of biologically active substances into the body through the skin
with the help of xenon inert gas. The scientists used the method to make
cosmetics, which were successfully sold in South-East Asia and in Russia up to
2020 under the brand name aleexe. In 2021, the developers opened production of
cosmetics with xenon in the Tomsk Special Economic Zone (SEZ).
"In the SEZ, we created the first batch of Zeenon universal
moisturizing cream - it is a purely American brand, we developed it
specifically for an American company, which is run by a practitioner who knows
about the positive properties of xenon. The first batch of 7,000 units will be
shipped at the beginning of the year," Verkhovsky said.
He specified that today Xeolab is able to produce various cosmetic products
at its production facilities in the SEZ, up to 27 thousand pieces per month.
According to Verkhovsky, the production of cosmetics was aimed at
fine-tuning the technology, testing the formulations for different skin types
and getting feedback from the market. The new cosmetics are characterized by
advanced eco-friendly formulations. All developments are patented and have no
analogues. The new cream has been tested, including in the USA.
Xenon is an inert gas. A common association with it is xenon headlights.
According to Verkhovsky, xenon is used not only in industry, but also in
medicine. In particular, therapeutic xenon inhalations improve the general
state of people, including in times of stress. These procedures are not
widespread yet, as xenon is expensive (one liter of gas costs 2.7 thousand
rubles; one inhalation requires approximately 4-5 liters).
