Formulations

Natural Cosmetics

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

With the everyday increases in sum-mery temperatures, formulations such as Impag’s Natural Slimming Cream, Croda’s Jojoba & Coconut Ecocert Sun Cream, GfN Selco’s Natural Light Face Cream and Sisterna’s Moisturizing Cucumber Splash OW sound exactly right. But for when the weather isn’t quite so kind Dr. Straetmans offers the Hamburg Weather Protection Cream. And, for those who want to do themselves some good in the stiff Hamburg breezes, we feel sure that Floratech’s formulation Moringa Butter Moisturizing Body Masque will provide the desired pampering experience. And for a special textured experience with olfactory pleasure there is PEG Free Apricot Cleansing Jam created by Lubrizol.

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 41 of the printed edition.
