Formulations

Mature Skin

Our formulations special in this issue brings you some exciting new ideas for cosmetic products for mature skin.

The formulations that we received clearly show that natural cosmetics are still setting the trend. What do you think, for instance, of the Solabia Peptiskin Bio-Regenerator Cream submitted by C.H. Erbslöh, or the Brighten Age Natural Anti-Age Spot Cream and the CoverAge Natural Foundation from Eckart?
The target consumer group is also becoming more well-defined. The 60+ Neck and Decolleté Serum from Cognis, and their Nutri 50+, are both clearly targetted at a specific age group

The very varied mix of basic formulations that have been specially submitted for this issue by ingredients manufacturers can be downloaded free of charge from our web site. You will find your access codes on the Internet button on page 3 and 36 of the printed edition in July.
