Happy Ageing

Using chronobiological actives

The company’s Happy Ageing concept shows how chronobiological science and an understanding of the physiology and behaviour of the human organism can be used in a targeted way when selecting actives for cosmetics products. After the age of about 40 the skin is able to lock in less moisture and so loses firmness. The first signs of ageing and changes due to exposure to sunlight can be seen. The company gives detailed recommendations regarding which actives are best for each phase of the client’s life. Their action is underlined with the use of precious organic plant oils.

Natural Cosmetics

In this issue our selection of formulations covers products for natural cosmetics.

A natural cosmetic is still the word on everyone's lips, and so it's no wonder that there is still a search for new types of natural formulation.Because natural cosmetics are increasingly focussing on the pampering aspects of cosmetics formulations, products such as Luxurious Body Wash from Croda, Gracefully Green Face Cream w/o Preservatives from Cognis, Natural velvet compact eyeshadow from Sensient Cosmetic Technologies and Natural Velveting Bar from Zschimmer & Schwarz should be of particular interest.

And there is a good selection of formulations for natural baby care, for example Natural Repair & Protect Nappy Cream from Croda or, as an alternative, Natural Baby Diaper Care from Dr. Straetmans. For companies in the sun care business Soothing Balm for Suntired Skin from Greentech and Natural Sunscreen from Kobo Products are included in the selection.

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 38 of the printed edition.
