France – April 12-14, 2016
One of the most important tradeshows for the global cosmetic industry, in-cosmetics, again brought together the world’s leading personal care ingredient specialists. Evonik attracted visitors’ attention not only with its innovative product and concept portfolio, but also with this year’s Formulation Lab, which showed customers how different formulation options allow manufacturers to use smart design principles for modern skin care emulsions.
On the first day of the show, Evonik held a well-attended press conference at which the company provided information on all of the innovations exhibited at the event. In addition to presenting Sensory Kaleidoscope, a novel tool for formulating skin care products with targeted sensory properties, Evonik also introduced TEGO® Solve 55, a naturally based solubilizer for perfume and essential oils. Highlights also included TEGO® Cosmo C 100, an amino acid derivative identical to creatine, which rebuilds and strengthens the structure of different types of hair from within. Furthermore, Evonik introduced its unique Elements of Care concept, offering high-performance formulations to protect the skin and hair from different environmental stress factors.
Innovation seminars are traditionally offered each day, and this year was no exception. Evonik took the opportunity to give two lectures, which were highly interesting for customers. On Wednesday, April 13, Julia Sauer spoke about Sensory Kaleidoscope, Evonik’s novel tool for formulating skin care products with targeted sensory properties; Sensory Kaleidoscope allows customers to explore skin feel from different perspectives. On the last day of the tradeshow, Dr. Christian Hartung held a lecture entitled “A Natural Way to Cover Different Solubilization Needs,” which gave attendees an overview of a novel set of three completely naturally derived, PEG-free products: TEGO® Solve 55, TEGO® Solve 61, and TEGOSOFT® PC 41. Both seminars were well attended by ingredients specialists and customers, who were delighted by the innovative tool and product solutions that were presented.
The tradeshow marked the first time that Formulation Labs had been offered in Europe. On Wednesday, Evonik held a lab session entitled “Modern, Natural Emulsifiers for Smart Production of Skin Care Emulsions.” Several formulation options for achieving these targets were demonstrated during the Formulation Lab session, along with solutions for O/W and W/O systems based on innovative emulsifiers. “It was great to have an opportunity to learn more about smart formulation design at Evonik and to share experiences with them,” said an enthusiastic customer after taking part in this event. Additional highlight: cocktail hour with customers Besides its focus on business themes, the Evonik booth also offered an additional highlight: On Wednesday evening, the well-known cocktail artists “TakeTwo” entertained everyone with a spectacular performance and delicious cocktails. “Evonik’s cocktail hour is a great opportunity to talk in a relaxed atmosphere; the show was great and the drinks are exactly what you need after a long tradeshow day,” said one customer during the show.
