Every Body Matters: Formulations that Celebrate Diversity and Inclusivity

Inclusivity in personal care has taken many different forms – products suited to everyone, to specific markets, and customisable products for the individual. This presentation and featured formulations explore the different interpretations of inclusivity, and reveal the formulatory opportunities that this trend can offer. We will be demonstrating how to best utilise ingredients to create products for a diverse market and demanding modern consumers.

A Holistic Approach to Formulating for the Beauty Microbiome

The synergy between the skin and its individual network of commensal microflora has become a trending topic and many different Probiotic, Prebiotic and Postbiotic approaches are offered to support this diverse skin environment. However, there can be a conflict between the addition of live bacteria to a formulation, the legal requirements of a safely preserved cosmetic product and the subsequent effects on the skin microbiome. With consumer and regulatory pressures changing how people seek to preserve products, not just in personal care but in markets ranging from home goods to fertilizers, emerging preservatives and “non-preservative” technologies are being more commonly applied.

Data on Histone Deacetylases (HDAC), which support commensal microflora and barrier function, and 16S ribosomal RNA metagenomic analysis highlight the influence of topical preparations on composition of the microbiome. This evidence supports the understanding that traditional biocides can cause bacteria cell wall disruption without target, killing both the “good” and the “bad” present on the skin.

In response to this, sister companies Active Micro Technologies and Active Concepts are offering a more holistic approach to formulating for the Beauty Microbiome, combining fermentation derived natural antimicrobial actives and global metabolic stimulants to help support the intricate system of microorganisms unique to each person’s skin.

Slimagine : A new approach to fat control

Slimming is an universal concern for most people. In order to have a healthy, fit and trim body, people exercise and diet. Indeed, fat comes from the nutrients contained in food that will be stored as triglycerides in adipocytes (the fat storing cells).
In order to help people on a diet to regulate their fat intake, Exsymol developed Slimagine (INCI name: PALMARIA PALMATA EXTRACT). This active is capable of fully controlling fat balance by controlling all the mechanisms involved in fat storage: it increases lipolysis (the fat burning process), it decreases lipogenesis (fat storing), while also decreasing adipogenesis (the creation of new adipose tissue) by preventing the unfolded protein response (UPR) mechanism. Because of this global control over fat storage, Slimagine is not only capable of stimulating fat excretion, but it is also able to prevent the yoyo effect.

Delivery Systems in Cosmetics: Indulging our skin when and where it is needed most.

Customer expectations are placing new challenges to the cosmetics market, which is asked to provide increasingly efficient products. Consequently, cosmetic ingredients need to be optimized to their maximum potential; delivery systems are the scientific answer to deliver on consumer expectations. These delivery systems are increasing active ingredients performance, stabilizing them, increasing their skin penetration and delivering them when and where they are needed most. When formulated into final products, affordable formulations with real consumer-perceivable benefits and optimal sensory attributes are delivered to the customers.

Is hair the new skin? The Parallels between hair care and skin care

Today, we see a strong parallel with skincare shaping the haircare market. Consumers are beginning to have more intensive care for their hair, and anything that can be applied in skincare can be replicated for hair. Lately, a clear shift has been seen in the haircare offer from a simple routine to an extended regime.

ChromoHance™ 113 polymer for color retention in hair care products

ChromoHance ™113 polymer (INCI polyquaternium 113) is a highly charged terpolymer that provides excellent protection against fade and wash out in shampoos and conditioners, whilst delivering long lasting conditioning. Ashland will be presenting the latest work done, which shows its versatility of action within all color processes, including bleaches, permanent, semi-permanent and temporary fashion colors, and how it can be incorporated into these formats.  In addition, a new color measurement methodology called hyperspectral imaging will be discussed, which provides much more detail on the individual dye components and their individual behaviors.

Formulation strategies in times of “liquid plastic” discussions and requests for “free-from”.

Todays and future consumer requirements strongly include sustainable handling of raw materials. This also forces the development of cosmetic formulations that are free from "water pollutants" like plastics in solid and liquid form. While solid plastics have already been removed from most cosmetics, the so called liquid plastics (synthetic polymers like acrylates) are becoming more in focus. Still ongoing is the "free-from" positioning mainly related to SLES, parabens and silicones. These can challenge formulators, especially in combination, to find appropriate solutions. Get ideas from the RAHN Application Lab, which offers new guide formulations and concept strategies on this topic.

Enhanced performance and skin feel in skin care formulations with a novel water- and wear-resistant, anti-pollution, film former

Current film-formers are typically hydrophobically-modified polymers and contribute to the heavy feel of formulations.  This new polymer is designed to disperse in water and form a mesh over the skin while enhancing the sensory profile of the finished formulation.  The mesh provides great wear resistance for make-up formulations and was found to protect the skin from exposure to certain common airborne environmental pollutants.  We used 2D and 3D field emission electron microscopy to image the mesh that the polymer formed over the skin.  Consumer data generated on formulations containing the polymer confirmed the wear resistance benefits imparted by incorporating this polymer into make-up formulations.  In addition, this technology offers great benefits towards pollution protection when incorporated in skin care formulations.

Clean, Pure & Simple

In recent years, the trend for “Green Beauty” has become super mainstream with more and more producers and consumers looking for beauty and personal care products that are ECO friendly and sustainable. This is what inspired us to look beyond our customers desires and create formulations that not only protect your skin but also protect the environment. We based our formulated solutions on the concept of Clean, Pure & Simple.
Our Chantilly Cream is a shower based whipped cream presented in an aerosol format that allows you to measure the exact amount of product you need to wash and moisturise your skin while reducing waste CLEAN
Most of the ingredients involved in our formulations are nature based with the Chantilly Cream in particular only containing certified ECOCERT constituents PURE
We believe that the Cosmetics market is looking for less ingredients in formulations therefore we developed a formula that contains less than 10 naturally based ingredients SIMPLE
During the Inspire Presentation Brenntag will show you as a leading international distributor of a comprehensive range of cosmetics ingredients, how we manage to recognise market trends at an early stage and how the Brenntag formulation team responds to those trends. Brenntag will emphasise on the Concept Clean, Pure & Simple and illustrate how we managed to meet our customer requirements.

Turning the World Green: How Biobased Ingredients Boost Sustainability

Traditional petro-based ethoxylates are known for their high-performance benefits but are derived from non-renewable sources, making them undesirable for formulators seeking to create more sustainable, bio-based formulations. Now, new bio-based ethoxylates offer the same high-performance benefits while supporting sustainability efforts due to their renewable bio-mass feedstocks.  This presentation will demonstrate how using these sustainable materials can enable formulators to meet rising demand for bio-based formulations without sacrificing performance, with formulation examples detailing the impact of bio-based ingredients.
