Facial care ? Moisturisation vs anti-ageing

Moisturising products have always been a key element in facial care. Are they now being pushed into the background by modern anti-ageing products? We attempt to answer this question in our anniversary article on the subject of facial care. As in the last issues of COSSMA there is also an anniversary prize draw (see inset). Keep your fingers crossed ? you could be one of the lucky winners this time.

Aluminium foil packaging, either as a mono-material or in combination with other packaging materials, can be used in a huge number of applications – cosmetics and perfume samplers, blister, overlays or foil seals for creams, soap wrappers, aerosol inner pouches or tubes.

Formulations: Hand- and Foot Care Products

It is amazing just how much the hand and foot care sector has changed over the last few years. At one time hand care was more or less confined to hand creams for dry skin, whereas now there is a huge selection of products on the market. The same is true for foot care, where all that was on offer were quasi medical preparations for unpleasant, sweaty feet. Now both of these sectors have emerged from the shadows and are conquering the market with imaginative products and products series that for the first time offer a total care package for tired hands and feet.
