TEGO® Cistus – Daylight defense, every day Rich in polyphenols, TEGO® Cistus brings the skin-protection and anti-oxidation power of the pink rock rose into your formulations. TEGO® Cistus provides protection against sunburned cells and DNA damage. Therefore it is an ideal active ingredient to deliver daylight defense and to help protecting the skin against external aggressions, such as UV light and pollution.
Phytosphingosine SLC – From photo damaged to photo ready One undesired consequence of sun exposure is photo-aging. UVA activates matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) that increase the degradation of ECM components and generates reactive oxygen species, leading to damage of skin cells and cellular structures. This multitude of effects will eventually lead to typical signs of photo-aging: dryness, redness, wrinkles, rough skin texture, loss of elasticity, and hyperpigmentation. Evonik`s Phytosphingosine SLC has been shown to help to repair photoaged skin by increasing dermal collagen and its anchoring strengthening DEJ. Phytosphingosine SLC consists of the naturally occurring skin-identical molecule phytosphingosine (PS) with an attached salicylic acid moiety. It has shown to prevent and restore photodamage in the connective tissue, especially on photoaged skin.
New high performance emulsifiers for modern skin care products Two emulsifiers based on different technologies are introduced during this event. The first one is ABIL® EM 120, a new and unique PEG-free, silicone-based W/O emulsifier, especially suitable for color foundations or other pigment containing emulsions like e.g. BB or CC creams. In these applications ABIL® EM 120 is able to stabilize pigments effectively. This leads to full color trueness which means that the color of the formulation after applying on the skin is the same as in the foundation as such. It can be used as well for white emulsion based systems as serums, creams and lotions. Special benefits are seen in AP/Deo applications, too. The second newly launched emulsifier is TEGO® Care PBS 6, 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 covers the need of sustainability while providing the emulsification 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.
