Formulations

Natural Cosmetics

Even though the growth of the market segment of natural cosmetics is not quite as sensational as in previous years, natural formulations are still in high demand. At the moment, formulations with new textures are very popular.

So what about the Smoothing Body Powder as presented here by AkzoNobel? For those seeking an alternative to the daily body care routine with lotions, the All Natural Skin Care Stick from Lipo Chemicals could be an appealing option. Over the past few years it has become increasingly popular to incorporate oils into all kind of products, so that they can add a little extra nutrition, smoothness and radiance. In this selection we present two formualations which demonstrate this trend: a Matt Oil Gel (Natural) offered by Nordmann, Rassmann and an Essential Oil Balm by Zschimmer & Schwarz.

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 50 of the printed edition.
