During 2016, SynDermix AG, the Swiss life science company specialising in lectins derived from red kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris), began pursuing the development of a recombinant form of phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) with a view to using it in various therapeutic indications.

T-Mero-Protect®, a natural, purified extract of the red kidney bean, is a key ingredient of Énielle® Skin Cell Senescence Antidote N°1, the proprietary cosmetic product of Énielle AG, which has been formulated as a facial serum. The serum also contains other carefully selected active ingredients, chosen to achieve a coactive effect with the red kidney bean extract. T-Mero-Protect® consists of two subunits of Phytohemagglutinin, the PHA-E (erythroagglutinin) and the PHA-L (leucoagglutinin), that have been isolated from red kidney beans and purified by affinity chromatography. It is extracted exclusively for Énielle AG, according to a standardised process that is a well-kept trade secret, and ensures consistency in the production and quality of the extract – in strict conformity with the specifications set in the Certificate of Analysis.


T-Mero-Protect®, Intesyl®, D-Panthenol, Eclaline®, ProRenew Complex CLR, Citrustem (Orange extract), Vitasource, Marine Hydrolyzed Collagen LMW, Allantoin.

Énielle® Skin Cell Senescence Antidote N°1 contains a complex of powerful natural active ingredients that work harmoniously against skin cell senescence. Our ingredients are derived from sustainable farming techniques and mindful harvest that ensures their optimal properties and performance.

The serum also contains T-Mero-Protect®, a protein extracted from red kidney beans. Red kidney beans are able to withstand and survive harsh environments thanks to their protective shield and the resilience qualities of T-Mero-Protect®. This purified extract boosts cellular activation and restores the skin’s youthful radiance by minimising the signs of ageing and improving skin texture.
