Modern formulations based on sustainable ingredients

Lab 1, Tuesday, 28th Mar, 11:30 - 12:30

The formulation lab will consist of two parts. The first part will focus on a formulation based on our recently introduced natural film former TEGO® FILMSTAR One MB, to improve formulation water resistance in sun care. During the second part, a modern formulation is presented to show the benefits of biosurfactants and to help the formulator to get more aquainted with this novel ingredient class.

Taking out the guesswork: oxidation stability in cosmetic formulations

Theatre 3, Wednesday, 29th Mar, 14:20 - 14:50

Protecting cosmetic products from oxidative spoilage is essential in the formulation process to ensure the shelf-life and integrity of the product. This task is becoming increasingly complex, considering growing consumer expectations regarding sustainability and the use of natural raw materials. Evonik dr.straetmans presents a new method for testing oxidative stability to overcome this hurdle and assist formulators in their planning and raw material selection. What makes this method truly unique is that it keeps the formulation perfectly intact by simulating real shelf-life product conditions. It thereby allows to provide precise information on system-dependent effects, including raw material interactions and synergies. Take part.

Building an entourage for targeted benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) on skin

Theatre 1, Thursday, 30th Mar, 10:50 - 11:20

The cosmetic industry has always been looking for revolutionary active ingredients. Driven by legalization of hemp, Cannabidiol (CBD) has been a rising star in wellness and beauty in recent years. However, cannabinoid potency is complex as the efficacy is often boosted through synergy with other natural companion substances like terpenes and flavonoids – an effect known as the entourage effect.

Join this seminar to learn how Evonik has used its high throughput screening platform SimDerma® in combination with a synergy algorithm tool (Innovation Studio) to curate synergistic blends of CBD that mimic the entourage effect of cannabinoids and fortify the benefits of CBD. Using this approach, formulators can craft products that avoid the potential regulatory concerns related to residual THC but still demonstrate unique targeted benefits that can help differentiate finished products. Take part.
