Cosmetic ingredients: Eco-design at the heart of recent launches

More than ever, environmental appears as a major concern in new cosmetic ingredient developments. Here are some illustrations from the launches made at the latest in-cosmetics Asia tradeshow and the IFSCC Congress in Paris.

Clariant launches innovative surfactants

With GlucoTain®, Clariant offers a range of four new non-ionic surfactants (GlucoTain® Clear, GlucoTain® Clean, GlucoTain® Flex, GlucoTain® Care). These sugar-based surfactants have been functionalized with fatty acids, including RSPO certified palm oil.

"We had been working for four years to develop these high performance products that show great sensorial results in particular in terms of softness and skin tolerance, as well as regarding foaming and conditioning properties and ease of use. Eco-design was also at the heart of development,” said Boris Segalowitch, sales manager. The products are Ethylene Oxyde (EO)-free, PEG-free and boast a low carbon footprint. Developed both for skin and hair care, GlucoTain® are, according to Clariant, intended to replace betaines, which are widely used in personal care products, which have a low eco-toxicity profile but are questioned as potential sensitizers. The GlucoTain® range also allows the formulation of sulfate-free shampoos and fragrance solubilisation in PEG-free formulas.

Seppic boosts melanin in all seasons

After seven years of research and two patents filed, Seppic builds on its expertise on lipoamino acids with the launch of Sepisun Flash™, the first pro-pigmenting agent which increases, without sun, the production of melanin by the skin.

The active provides a naturally tanned complexion within 15 days with a durable effect. In comparison, a sunless tanner, acts in a few hours, but with a more temporary effect.

Sepisun Flash™ meets market expectations by combining well-being with effectiveness. It’s easy ti use and enables our clients to swiftly adapt to consumer requests for products that give a ‘healthy ook’ all year round,” says Carla Perez, Seppic’s Functional Active Ingredients Product Manager.

Lonza: a lightening active derived from stem cells of licorice

With ReGeniStem™ Brightening, a lightening active, Lonza is expanding its range of cosmetic ingredients obtained from plant stem cells. The active inhibits tyrosinase in a manner comparable to the market benchmarks - namely kojic acid, arbutin and hydroquinone - and also presents a collagen boosting effect. According to Lonza, the technology allows to obtain more concentrated molecules of active ingredients while respecting sustainable development, without using solvents and without using a significant amount of raw botanical material, namely licorice.
