On the eve of the opening of the in-cosmetics tradeshow in Paris (12-14 April 2016), Premium Beauty News is offering its readers a special issue dedicated to cosmetic ingredients. This year again, ingredients suppliers will showcase a wide portfolio of anti-pollution actives among their innovations.
According to Mintel, between 2011 and 2013, there was a 40% increase in the number of cosmetics marketed which displayed an anti-pollution claim, in particular in the Asian-Pacific region.
Cosmetic ingredient suppliers have adopted different types of strategies, for instance, by isolating the skin from the external environment with a non-occlusive film, or, by banking on powerful antioxidants, anti-lipoperoxidants, anti-glycation agents, or anti-free radical ingredients. Certain companies go even farther by developing turnkey concepts.
Furthermore, the development of these new actives requires developing in vivo, in vitro, and ex vivo biological tests adapted to this new anti-pollution trend.
