At the Awards Ceremony at in-cosmetics 2013 in Paris, in-cosmetics announced the winner of the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award and bestowed the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award to Karl Lintner, PhD.
Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award which honors outstanding individuals whose professional accomplishments have made a significant and lasting impact on the cosmetics industry. Karl Lintner, PhD; Klaus Stanzl, PhD; and Dene Godfrey were among the finalists.
Lintner, who is well known in the industry for his contribution to work on skin biochemistry, started his career researching biological peptides at the Nuclear Research Centre in Saclay, France. After 10 years, he moved on to positions at leading companies including Henkel and Sederma, where he was CEO for 10 years. Lintner has filed several dozen patents, published numerous articles and book chapters on cosmetics ingredients and is an active member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) and Société Française de Cosmétologie (SFC). He is currently an independent consultant and president of KAL’IDEES, as well as the editor in chief of the International Journal of Cosmetic Science. He received the Maison de Navarre Media from the SCC in 2012.
Upon receiving the award, Lintner commented, “I am absolutely thrilled to have won the in-cosmetics Lifetime Achievement Award. It’s an honor to be recognized for everything I have done in my career by my past and present colleagues and peers.” Lucy Gillam, event director of in-cosmetics added, “All of the finalists are extremely deserving of their nominations, but we’d like to give a big congratulations to Dr. Lintner. He is a prominent force in the cosmetics industry, and we’re pleased to be able to recognize his many achievements and pass on the acknowledgment he deserves.”
Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award
Induchem took home gold as part of the Innovation Zone Best Ingredient Award for Neodermyl. Neodermyl is a pure source of bio-renewable energy that reactivates collagen and elastin synthesis in the skin to re-energize senescent fibroblasts by supplying them with an activated source of cellular energy. This results in a fast and sustainable production of collagen III, collagen I, tropoelastin and elastin, which lead to visible improvement of skin texture and reduction of wrinkle depth in two weeks. In just two weeks Neodermyl gives equivalent results to one needle injection of collagen by a plastic surgeon (-15% wrinkle depth reduction). The judges applauded Induchem for its scientific innovation in the development of Neodermyl, the use of green chemistry and the demonstrated efficacy of the ingredient that offers real benefits in formulation.
