Unlocking Hair Repair and Protection Against Thermal Damage

Presentation of Ashland’s natured derived technologies to prevent heat damage during hairstyling routine and repair hair.

Heat damage occurs during hair styling when using high-temperature devices like flat irons, blow dryers and curl irons. Although synthetic polymers are effective against heat damage, they compromise the biodegradability of formulations. Consumers seek sustainable yet high-performing products for curling or straightening their hair. We will introduce our nature-derived biopolymer designed to repair hair damage and provide heat protection during styling.

Ingredients for the Future of Sustainable Beauty

Modern consumers are evolving from end-users to change agents driving product innovations by making their voices heard.

Planet health is the most important issue for consumers worldwide. According to the 2023 Innova Lifestyle & Attitudes Survey, 36% of consumers globally agree that climate change is a top concern.  In addition, 34% say that they would like to see companies help protect nature, believing that brands have a role to play.

In this growing space, biotechnology and upcycling are pivotal strategies to offer a “guilt-free” beauty experience to conscious consumers while delivering powerful performance.

Mastering these techniques, CP Kelco is the right partner to support manufacturers in their sustainable beauty journey. Come and learn our sustainability-first approach, and discover how we make products on purpose.

An Evolution Towards Biodegradable Rheology Modifiers

To transition our products toward greater naturality, a starch-supported copolymer has been developed. The hybrid polymer brings the performance of synthetic rheology modifiers and combines it with the sustainability of the natural component. The novel ingredient has been formulated in sulfate, and sulfate-free chassis demonstrating viscoelastic behaviour equivalent to synthetic thickeners. It exhibits sustainable characteristics meeting the inherent biodegradability threshold in an OECD 301B biodegradation test and its manufacturing process addresses all 12 principles of Green Chemistry. This product represents an evolution in our rheology modifier portfolio and solidifies our commitment to a sustainable future.

Bonding Beyond Breakage: Transforming Damaged Hair with our Natural Bond Building Complex

“EverBond™ is a naturally derived bond-building ingredient that works to repair oxidatively damaged disulfide bonds and strengthen the keratin integrity of the hair fibre. A characteristic of healthy hair is a high level of intact, disulfide bonds which gives the hair its structure and strength. When hair colour, shape or style is modified, either through the chemical bleaching process, relaxing or perming, these bonds can weaken or are broken. This oxidative process results in cysteic acid formation within the hair and weakens the hair fibre making it more prone to breakage. This type of damage is traditionally believed to be irreversible and creates a need for an ingredient that penetrates into the cortex to repair these broken bonds and increase keratin integrity. EverBond creates a reducing environment to reverse this oxidative process, allowing the disulfide bonds to reform. The reformation of these disulfide bonds in turn strengthens the hair protein, making the hair stronger and more resistant to breakage. The alpha keratin is strengthened, allowing hair to be more elastic when force is applied.

Beyond UV Filters: The Future of Solar Cosmetology

As consumers are increasingly aware of the dangers of excessive sun exposure, and become more demanding of broad spectrum photoprotection, brands are challenged with building UV protection into Personal Care offerings -driving the trend for layering Sun Care across the different cosmetic segments. This ‘Sunnification’ trend blurs the lines between traditional Sun Care, Skin Care and Make-up.

The future of Sun Care merges technology and ecology, offering protection and well-being through formulas respectful of every skin type, consumer need and our planet.

Assessing Product Sensory Experience with a Machine Learning Model Trained with Expert Sensory Panel Data and Analytical Data: A Novel Approach to Optimise the Use of Expert Sensory Panel

We will present a machine learning method to directionally predict/screen the sensory performance based on analytical measurements of novel product formulations. Our method aims to reduce the burden on costly sensory panel studies and streamline the new product development cycle by using appropriate product characterisation data. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our method on an industry dataset and show that it can achieve high accuracy and reliability in benchmarking new product formulations from a sensory perception perspective.
