Formulating for the US and Canadian Market- as easy as 1-2-3

The US currently has the most robust economy in the world. With the strength of the dollar, there are tempting profits to be made by selling products in the US and Canada, its closest trading partner.

This presentation will cover how to formulate products for the US market, especially considering California regulations, since California is the 6th largest economy in the world on its own. Canada is a close trading partner under NAFTA and offers almost seamless product interface, when planning in advance. With a little bit of knowledge, compliance is even easier to accomplish than meeting the EU requirements.

When a consumer reacts to a cosmetic product: From Cosmetovigilance to Patch testing

Market surveillance, in which cosmetovigilance plays a crucial role, is arguably one of the most important attributes in the lifecycle management of cosmetic products.  Although cosmetovigilance is a mandatory requirement in the European cosmetic regulatory framework, the concept can also provide brand owners, both own-label and FMCG, with valuable insights into consumer perceptions of their marketed cosmetic products.

This presentation will highlight the current philosophy employed by the cosmetic industry in the European Union, illustrated by real-life examples of cosmetic products and product types which can elicit complaints from consumers using such products.

 

Learning outcomes:

1) Cosmetovigilance is more than a checkbox exercise to satisfy a European regulatory requirement.

2) Consumers are very fickle when it comes to contacting Brands and Retailers when they experience a 'problem' with a product.

3) Cosmetovigilance and market surveillance are not difficult or complex.  Logical thinking and an orderly way of doing things are the key to successful programmes.

4) Cosmetovigilance and market surveillance can contribute more than just safety signals.  Brand reputation can also be 'saved'.

5) Consumers are becoming increasingly savvy in the ways that they interact with Brands and Retailers; you must not underestimate the power of the internet.

Formulation of microbial safe products in a free from world

Microbial safety of cosmetic products is a challenge for formulators considering legal aspects as well as technical requirements and marketing trends. Public discussion additionally limits the number of accepted substances for microbial stabilization. In absence of new substances, which display in their main function to inhibit the development of microorganism, the cosmetic industry moves to multifunctional ingredients which either have a certain antimicrobial activity or are able to boost biocidal substances.

The presentation will illustrate market trends as well as the regulation challenges.

Hair Care – An alternative to split ends trimming: Solvay launches Polycare Split Therapy!

Nothing beats a fresh haircut to make hair look shinier and healthier. But a few weeks of multiple mechanical, chemical and thermal treatments cause split ends, that make hair unmanageable and lifeless.Thanks to Solvay’s new innovation, trimming split ends is no longer the only fix for damaged hair. Solvay introduces Polycare Split Therapy, a durable cure for split ends, that is vegetable-based, easy to process and compatible with shampoo, conditioners and serums. Long-lasting Polycare Split Therapy heals more than 80 percent of split ends with just the first application. Keep that fresh-haircut look longer, without the salon price!

The two-in-one effect: added values of specific emulsifiers and surfactants

Specific surface-active components can create benefits for formulators if used correctly.
A rather new class of such molecules are so-called "gemini surfactants". One of those amino acid based functional ingredients is water-soluble but at the same time improves hydrophobicity of hairs. A reduction of hair drying time by 30% or avoiding a loss of tensile strength during hair coloration, hair waving and bleaching treatments are just some of the benefits. Additional topics in this presentation will be foam stabilization, specific antimicrobial efficacy and preservation boosting.

The Water Paradox: Exploring novel formulations to meet diverse global trends

Formulators are constantly looking for the newest trends and how to design products to meet them. A rise in water shortage across the globe has led to many people seeking anhydrous solutions to their cosmetic needs, whilst a conflicting trend of increased water usage in products focusses on novel textures and hydrating claims. This presentation explores these water-based trends and the resultant formulatory opportunities.

Stop wasting time! Use our natural thickening agents

Stop wasting time! Use our natural thickening agents.

Thickening and gelling agents have a huge influence on the stability and the haptic feeling of cosmetic formulations. High stability, high transparency, fast solubility and less stickiness are typical requirements. COSMOS and vegan certification combined with excellent specified values are fast increasing demands. Cosphatec GmbH will present the great potential of our highly transparent Xanthan Gums Cosphaderm® X 34 and Cosphaderm® X soft as well as our natural gelling substance Cosphaderm® KG and their interaction which leads to elastic jelly gels.

Reprogramming the skin for a youthful appearance

Epigenetic mechanisms have been studied in depth along the past decade due to their interesting ability to control gene activity beyond the information in the DNA sequence. Among the processes regulated at the epigenetic level are epidermal renewal and homeostasis.

 

Epidermal basal cells (consisting of stem and progenitor cells) have the ability to proliferate, giving rise to cells that then follow a process of differentiation into mature keratinocytes. This capacity to replenish the tissue is maintained by the transcription factors OCT4, SOX2 and KLF4, which are stem cell markers. Activity of these genes is regulated at the epigenetic level by microRNAs. Concretely, microRNA-145 is known to repress the activity of these three stem cell transcription factors, causing basal cells to stop dividing. As a result, the cells leave the basal layer and start the differentiation process, involving changes in the expression of characteristic epidermal markers.

 

Lipotec was inspired by epigenetics and microRNAs to develop REPROAGE™ peptide, a cosmetic active ingredient that can help skin regeneration properties last longer. The ingredient reduces the levels of the key regulator microRNA-145 and increases the typical factors of basal cells, suggesting the reprograming of cells and a subsequent reactivation of the pool of epidermal progenitors.

 

The application of the cosmetic ingredient in volunteers was associated with a faster epidermal self-renewal, at a rate equivalent to that of more than a decade younger skin. Also an

-LUPALINE®: let you skin enjoy daily sun exposure while remaining protected.

Precious molecules from Wheat Germ oil combined with Lupin Oil bring high protection to skin cells DNA as well as skin cells membranes towards harmful effects of UV rays. It thus prevents cells functions and cells exchanges within the skin even in case of UV stress.

a-LUPALINE® helps to preserve skin elasticity, one of the most impacted skin mechanical property by sun exposure (solar elastosis).

The complementary anti-oxidant benefits makes a-LUPALINE® an excellent ingredient to prepare the skin to sun exposure, ideal to include in anti-aging skin care, SPF daily care or sun care.

Cleanse, Detoxify Protect: The Next Generation of Anti-Pollution Actives

Sulfur biology is an untapped, relatively undiscovered sector of cosmetic science, holding potential for novel anti-ageing and anti-pollution claims. Investigations into the protective mechanisms of a microalgae, which flourishes in polluted waters following an underwater volcano eruption, led us to the co-culturing of Crypthecodinium Cohnii with a sulfur rich growth media. This process allows for the extraction of specific sulfated polysaccharides which in turn can up regulate glutathione concentrations when applied topically.  Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that works to protect against cellular and external environmental pollution defending the skin against both extrinsic and intrinsic stress.
