Lastly, Michniak sought to improve the stability of the preparations. “Academics do not usually look at stability because they often are not thinking about commercialization,” noted Michniak. Her team found that freeze-drying the preparations was a suitable solution. “We studied the tyrosomes for more than 100 weeks and they remained stable. This confirmed that the technology was stable and successful for use over time.”
Beyond the technical presentations, raw material companies showcased their ingenuity and capabilities during the FCE exhibition. In addition to handing out travel-sized formula samples and bold, dye-cut product brochures, some exhibitors took interacting with attendees to a whole new level—ranging from beauty makeovers to functioning manufacturing lines on the show floor. In one case, Rhodia hired a team of local Brazilian hair styling celebrities to cut and style attendees’ hair using the company’s latest hair care innovations. In another case, the flavor and fragrance company Firmenich built an elaborate display at its booth aimed at exploring the senses, for attendees to see, feel, taste and touch.
Rounding out three days of science and showcasing, a closing gala marked the “grand finale” to the event, honoring established and up-and-coming innovators—both on the podium and in poster presentations. Winners for the best paper presented at the event were Belcorp’s Daniel Sanchez and John Jimenez, for their work on age-reversal. Looking ahead, the FCE exhibition will be held next May 12-14, 2014, again at the Transamerica Expo Center in São Paulo, while the next COLAMIMQC event will take place October 27-19, 2015, at the Conrad Resort and Casino in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
The COLAMIQC event will once again highlight innovative research and application of science in the industry, but in one new and additional way: via the Johann Wiechers Award for practical application. Cosmetics & Toiletries is a proud sponsor of this award, which will be presented for the first time at the 2015 event. More information will be made available in late 2013 at www.CosmeticsandToiletries.com.
