Multifunctionality: With BB, CC and even DD creams on the rise, multifunctionality is the name of the game in personal care. Suppliers were answering this trend with raw materials that had a number of functions, many of which could be included in BB creams themselves. Examples of some multifunctional technologies were: Momentive's Velvesil Mul-T gel and Silsoft E-Pearl PF emulsion; Selvol Ultalux by Sekisui Specialty Chemicals; SiQube Q 1850 from Gelest; Seppic's Eliclear 4U; and Abil EM 120 from Evonik.
Hair: The personal care industry is always searching for new hair care ingredients to maintain color, mend damage or treat dandruff. The event hosted a number of suppliers focused on hair care innovation, including: Ashland with Conditioneze 22 and Conditioneze 37; Bluestar Silicones with Mirasil ADM-E235C and Mirasil Serum; BiotechMarine and Seppic with Esculane; Dow Corning with its CE-8411 Smooth Plus Emulsion, Grant Inc. with NYKT-P and Lucas Meyer with Phytenso.
Croda Inc. hosted a breakfast before the event on May 14, 2013, where Regan Tillou spoke to the press about the science behind hair damage. She detailed the different kinds of hair damage, including: cuticle de-cementation and lifting, cuticle abrasion, cuticle shear band formation (split ends), longitudinal cracking, bulges and craters, and breakage of hair fibers. She then explained how the company tests for hair damage and went into some of the products they have designed to address hair damage, including: Crodazosoft DBQ, to prevent cuticle abrasion; Keramimic 2.0, a conditioning active to repair damaged hair; and KeraDyn HH, to restore bounce and swing.
Anti-aging and AP/Deo: Antiperspirants and deodorants (AP/Deo) is not always a category ripe with innovation; however, a few new deo ingredients emerged at Suppliers' Day, such as APShield 100 from Ashland, and Freshaxyl from BASF.
There were also many anti-aging actives introduced at the event, including: Ashland's Actopontine, Shadownyl from BASF, Bonicel from Ganeden Biotech, Juvefoxo from Lipotec and Alban Muller's Repulpami ER. Cosmetics & Toiletries conducted an exclusive interview with Lipotec's Cristina Carreño, PhD, at the show to talk about the company's peptides, many of which have anti-aging properties, and to discuss communicating this science to the consumer.
