Cosmetorium features developments that allow branded/ private label manufacturers and brand owners/ developers to respond effectively and efficiently to consumer demand in ever competitive markets. Visit DSM Personal Care at booth 253 and discuss our latest launches and findings in the field of skin care, photoprotection and performance ingredients.

A special focus will be set on our recently introduced skin care active BEL-EVEN® a patented new cosmetic ingredient that inhibits in vitro 11β-HSD1. BEL-EVEN®, was specifically developed for skin care applications by using a rational design approach. It locally rebalances the negative, long-term effects of stress on skin and visibly reduces signs of a stressful lifestyle.

Don’t miss out on the following lecture held by Olivier Garet, Business Development & Marketing Manager Personal Care on September 26 at 5:20 pm. Under the title “Novel facial color mapping technology makes hydration visible” we are trying to make science tangible by visualizing the effectiveness of moisturizers on different skin tones.

Abstract: Every day, indoor and outdoor stress negatively affects the skin’s natural hydration, causing it to dry out much faster. The key needs of skin exposed to urban stress are fast-acting and long-term hydration with targeted care for problem areas. With the help of Chinese women living in the highly-polluted megacity of Beijing, DSM scientists has been using its revolutionary visualization technology to study dry skin and hydration in urban settings. This technology allowed us to produce color images of the face, that showed Chinese women have excessively dry skin in the problematic cheek and jaw areas. Remarkable images also revealed the true hydration power of DSM’s natural moisture-magnet PENTAVITIN®, an unique skin-identical carbohydrate complex. Three hours after a single application, excessively dry skin areas are already much better hydrated. Used daily, PENTAVITIN® provides powerful hydration to all facial areas.
