IT’S CALLED THE BIG APPLE, but even New York City may not be big enough for two cosmetic industry trade shows. In November, In-Cosmetics North America will stage its first event at the
Javits Convention Center, only a few months after the New York
Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists held its Suppliers’
Day tradeshow at the same venue. And even Suppliers’ Day
came only a month after In-Cosmetics Global closed its doors in
London. Lots of shows, lots of information, and lots of attendees.
The In-Cosmetics Global event drew 8,746 attendees according
to Reed Exhibitions, while NYSCC Suppliers’ Day was attended
by 8,752, said New York Chapter organizers.
Industry suppliers were out in full force in London and New
York this spring showcasing their newest products and services to
the global cosmetics industry.
At In-Cosmetics, Clariant held an event for customers and
press to detail its newest ingredients that tie into two of the
biggest trends in beauty—aging consumers and social media.
According to company estimates, global personal care sales
reached $523 billion in 2015. Skin care sales rose 4% to $90 billion
and, more impressive, sales of actives jumped 10% to $1 billion.
No wonder then, that Clariant has made a big investment in the
actives sector by developing
its own ingredients. One of
the first is Eosidin, an extract
of green citrus unshiu, which
is said to tackle immuno-modulation and shows outstanding results in clinical
studies on atopic-prone skin.
According to Clariant, people are subjected to 2-5 times
more contaminants indoors
than outdoors. Experiences
and measurements show
that the level of indoor pollution, and specifically for
heavy metals and particulate
matters (PM), is higher than
the average allowed by the
World Health Organization.
The consequences are atopic-prone skin conditions with hypersensitivity, dryness, irritation and disruption to the skin barrier
function. This is significant with skin sensitivity being now an issue for 60% of the population.
The extract is enriched in Synephrine, Hesperidin and
Naringin molecules, which are said to play a major role in decreasing hypersensitivity conditions.
In a test formulation based on 2% Eosidin, all results are already significant after four weeks. A dermatologist evaluated the
decrease of atopic-prone skin condition and confirmed a 44%
improvement after eight weeks. Volunteers also evaluated their
itching index (VAS) and it was dramatically decreased by 65% after eight weeks. Hydration increased by 54%, and transepidermal
water loss (TEWL) was reduced by 30% showing an improved
skin barrier function after eight weeks. Nearly all (95%) of the
clinical volunteers noticed a decrease of skin itchiness and 86%
decrease in skin dryness, according to Clariant. Eosidin is water
soluble and easy to formulate for typical face and body formulations, such as face and body creams, serums, lotions, masks, toners and facial mists. The ingredient has no impact on formulation
color or smell, and is China compliant.
