Croda’s Ice Cream Emulsion, which provides an appealing visual texture, a light and cooling sensation during application and prolongs skin hydration, won the Cosmetagora “Coup de Coeur” formulation award for 2016 organised by the French Cosmetic Society in Paris in January 2016 on the occasion of the eighth Cosmetagora show.
The theme of the formulation contest was “Surprise Us” and its aim was to award the three most innovative formulations from the forty-eight different participants that entered this year.
The top three awards went to IFF Lucas Meyer Cosmetics, SICAF and Arkema Innovative Chemistry. “Croda’s Ice Cream Emulsion did not fit into any of the existing award categories but the judges were so impressed by the formulation that they created a brand new ‘Coup de Coeur’ prize to recognise Croda’s outstanding innovation,” explains the cosmetics ingredient supplier.
The Ice Cream Emulsion was developed at Croda’s Shanghai laboratory in China where the trend for this type of product was first identified.
Collecting the award were Pascale Rossi, Marketing Manager and Guillaume Douillet, Sales Manager for Consumer Care of Croda France.
