Helping Others with Better Personal Care Ingredients: Sytheon’s Founder Story

At an early age, Ratan K. Chaudhuri, PhD, discovered he could leverage scientific research to improve people’s lives. This philosophy has driven Dr. Chaudhuri throughout his entire career – and represents the very fabric of Sytheon as a company.

Dr. Chaudhuri is an innovator passionate about helping others. This passion is what drove him to pursue a career in personal care and, eventually, start Sytheon in 2006. Here are some highlights about Dr. Chaudhuri’s leadership and innovation in the personal care industry.

Sytheon’s Impact on Personal Care

Since founding Sytheon, Dr. Chaudhuri and his team have developed an impressive portfolio of products that are backed by clinical data. These skin care ingredients are inspired by nature and contain anti-aging and antioxidant properties that promote healthy skin.

One of Dr. Chaudhuri’s greatest accomplishments was the invention of Sytenol® A, a 99%+ pure bakuchiol product that is the true alternative to retinol. Clinical studies showed that Sytenol® A has a better tolerability profile than retinol and is clinically proven to address multiple signs of aging. Sytenol® A is REACH-registered and the only bakuchiol approved for use in China.

Sytheon’s latest innovation is ActSES®, a turnkey product with clinical validation and patent protection, to fulfill an industry need for a sustainable, safe and cost-effective product to treat mild to moderate Atopic Dermatitis (AD). Dr. Chaudhuri hopes to find an exclusive partner to help bring ActSES® to the OTC dermatological market so children and adults with mild-to-moderate AD can find relief for their symptoms.

Sytheon’s Impact on Others

Dr. Chaudhuri’s passion for helping others extends beyond his innovative work. He also dedicates himself to others through Sytheon’s charitable activities, including benevolent research collaborations with the Moffitt Cancer Research Center and UC-Davis California.

Dr. Chaudhuri’s leadership and philosophy for helping others have allowed him to build a company that has a positive impact on the world. In recognition of this, Dr. Chaudhuri has been inducted into the Marquis Who’s Who biographical registry. Read the full Marquis Who’s Who profile here.
