New Technology Launches
Croda made additions to its NatraGem and ViscOptima ranges in addition to a brightening active through its Crodarom subsidiary. NatraGem EW is an emulsifier wax with excellent stabilization and thickening properties that is capable of creating formulations ranging from lotions to high viscosity creams that are non-whitening on the skin and have excellent sensory benefits. And NatraGem S150 is an effective and multifunctional solubilizer that is designed to combine lipophilic cosmetic actives with their carrier oils into clear formulations. And for the multifunctional category, Croda introduced ViscOptima SE, a liquid rheology modifier that can be used to emulsify and stabilize high levels of oils and silicones within a formulation. ViscOptima LV is a multifunctional liquid dispersion polymer that can emulsify up to 20% oils and silicones to create light milks, creams and lotions. Crodarom debuted Porcelain Flower, an extract of the Hoya lacunosa that brightens skin with antioxidant, moisturizing and soothing benefits in skin care, foundations and BB creams.
Beauty Creations, the cosmetic active ingredient business of BASF, is now offering Shadownyl, a potent brown seaweed extract to combat the formation of wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes for a fully refreshed and enlightened eye contour. Beauty Creations introduced the plant-based Freshaxyl, a natural efficient anti-odor active for the growing deo market.
BASF unveiled the second level of the Care Creations brand roll-out—launching the formulation concept “Cosmetics for real life,” which studies, explores and develops based on consumers’ daily needs. Luviset One was among the new products on display, an all-in-one solution for hair styling gels, creams and waxes that delivers strong styling performance, long-lasting curl retention and provides a smooth, crystal-clear gel base. Also debuted was Lamesoft OD, a microemulsion for oil deposition on the skin in bath and shower applications without a greasy after feel. The company also launched the broad-spectrum UV filter Tinosorb A2B, which provides protection from UVB and UVAII wavelengths from 290 through to 340 nm. BASF also presented Chione HD, effect pigments for the “nude look” trend, which continues to drive demand for cosmetics that give the skin a natural but radiant complexion. Formulated into BB creams or skin care serums, Chione HD pearls achieve brightness and correct imperfections effectively.
