As one of the world’s leading specialists in ingredients and concepts for effective skin, hair and body care products Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line uses FCE Cosmetique to showcase several innovations – from innovative product solutions to a Men’s Care concept delivering market insights, scientific studies as well as selected formulations. Another business line is using the business platform for displaying its latest products and services: Evonik’s Health Care Business Line will present its complete portfolio which includes the development of new formulations, controlled release systems, pharmaceutical actives synthesis, scale-up and clinical analysis.
Responding to the continuously growing male grooming market, Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line introduces a comprehensive concept providing individual solutions for the modern man. This concept encompasses a consumer survey delivering market insights on male grooming routines, as well as the implementation of Evonik’s scientific studies on male skin and the development of selected formulations just for men. Male consumers are looking for multifunctional, high performing and easy to apply products with proven efficacy. Meeting the individual demands of men and the specific needs of male skin Evonik has developed a variety of high performing formulations for different application forms – such as a Whole Body Clean & Shave Shower Gel, a Power Moisture Balm, a Pure Performance Shampoo, an Age Rebel & Protection Day Care, an Active Body Protection Antiperspirant and a Recovery Boost Eye Refresher.
TEGO® Care PBS 6 is a powerful, PEG-free O/W emulsifier for challenging fluid emulsions. It is an eco-friendly, high performance emulsifier based on polyglyceryl technology that allows the formulation of modern sun care products. TEGO® Care PBS 6 provides a sustainable solution for the optimal stability of sun care formulations containing a high load of water soluble UV filters or other challenging ingredients like insect repellents or natural preservatives. Beside its excellent stabilization capacities especially in low-viscous systems this new and unique emulsifier provides moisturizing properties as proven in an in vivo study.
Prevention of hair loss and improvement of hair quality is a combination of scalp health and a balanced hair life cycle. SPHINGONY is a naturally occuring sphingoid base that has demonstrated benefits in reducing hair loss due to increasing the fraction of hair in the anagen growth phase. This is achieved by inhibition of 5-α-reductase, induction of Ceramide production and cornification and an antimicrobial activity via direct (Malassezia furfur growth reduction) and indirect mechanisms (human anti-microbial peptide gene expression). This makes this new active ingredient perfectly suited for anti-hair loss tonic applications, rebalancing leave-in conditioners or multifunctional scalp fluids.
TEGO® Solve 61 is a high performance PEG-free solubilizer developed for the incorporation of lipophilic components into water-based formulations. It is based on polyglyceryl esters and is made from 100% renewable raw materials. It complies with Ecocert standards. The product is easy to handle and cold processable, thus allowing easy preparation of mixtures with oils and water. It can be used in e.g. cleaning solutions or detergent systems without affecting the foaming properties of the formulation. Crystal clear cosmetic formulations are possible. The product is cold processable without the formation of gel phases. TEGO® Solve 61 furthermore shows mitigating attributes as well as effective moisturization and skin feel benefits. These forward-looking solutions will be showcased at FCE Cosmetique in São Paulo, from 12th to 14th May. We look forward to welcoming you at booth B62.
In parallel to the exhibition, the 27th Congress of Cosmetology will take place. Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line is sponsoring the congress and will participate with a technical presentation: Dr. Juergen Meyer, Head of Innovation Management Cosmetic Ingredients/ Leave-On, will give a speech on “innovative PEG-free polyglyceryl esters as eco-friendly, high performance emulsifiers for odern skin care products”.
South America, and in particular Brazil, is emerging as a highly attractive market in the Personal Care space. To enlarge Evonik’s footprint and help to deliver better service, Evonik is investing in a new production facility in Americana, Sao Paulo. Scheduled to go on stream in 2014 and with a total capacity up to 50,000 metric tons, the site will produce secondary surfactants, emulsifiers, conditioning agents, emollients, thickeners and softener actives to serve the local and global players in Brazil and South America. A local workforce and close proximity to Evonik’s customers will foster stronger partnerships and will allow to respond faster to the customers’ specific challenges. Furthermore, Evonik can take a more targeted approach to innovation, tailoring Evonik’s products to fluctuating market needs. Evonik’s long-term commitment to Brazil will reduce logistics complexity, support customer expansion and enhance the competitiveness of Evonik’s South American business.
