Berg+Schmidt plans to showcase a range of active oils at in-cosmetics Global 2023 in Barcelona. The line includes BergaCare AquaLipids that are water dispersible processed natural oils for a variety of applications, such as water-based serums, fluids, toners and o/w emulsions. The ingredients are able to modulate sensory properties of the finished product.
AquaLipids are not chemically modified, moreover, they mix with water without solubilizers, enhancing skin compatibility and reducing the foaming sensation during application.

At in-cosmetics Global in Barcelona, Berg+Schmidt will present a sample kit showcasing serums and gels containing several BergaCare AquaLipids that target the needs of different skin types:
- BergaCare AquaLipids Cassis BR (INCI: Not Provided) contains a combination of blackcurrant and rosehip seed oil, resulting in a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, e.g. gamma, alpha-linolenic and linoleic acids. This composition offers improvement in the regulation of sebum production and anti-inflammatory effects, along with a pleasant skin feel and fast absorption. This product can also be used for oily skin concepts.
- Pomegranate seed oil (INCI: Not Provided) contains punicic acid, which has a powerful antioxidant effect and helps counteract aging in mature skin. It also contains numerous skin regenerating substances such as phytosterols, polyphenols and flavonoids. This oil is processed into BergaCare AquaLipids Punica PS (INCI: Not Provided) along with sea buckthorn oil (INCI: Not Provided).
- BergaCare AquaLipids Bisabolol AR (INCI: Not Provided) is designed for sensitive skin due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Key ingredients include an oily extract with a high concentration of alpha-bisabolol, a chamomile-derived molecule and rice bran oil.
- BergaCare AquaLipids Melon BK (INCI: Not Provided) contains the oil of the Kalahari melon. With its high linoleic acid content, it provides building blocks for the development of the skin barrier and supports epidermal moisturization and hydration. The second key ingredient is bulbine frutescens leaf juice, which supports elasticity and collagen production, making it ideal for dry, thirsty skin.
Kristin Köhler, division manager of cosmetics, commented: “The aim was to develop a new functional and innovative product range using valuable active oils known and trusted by formulators and customers. BergaCare AquaLipids promise ease of formulation for the creation of thrilling concepts based on all-natural ingredients for targeted skin care solutions."
