DSM in Personal Care & Aroma Ingredients

Natural Origin Product range

DSM’s Natural Origin label follows the criteria set out in ISO 16128 which was introduced in September 2017. The standard comprises guidelines on definitions for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and offers a framework to determine the natural content of ingredients as well as formulations. According to ISO 16128, to receive a natural origin rating the natural part of an ingredient must be greater than 50%.

BEAUACTIVE®: Corrects both conspicuous facial pores and age spots

Most people looking for beautiful skin think first of eliminating lines and wrinkles. But other concerns, such as conspicuous facial pores and age spots, may be equally troubling. These arise after the age of 30 and are mainly caused by the aging process, exacerbated by sun damage. DSM is addressing these concerns with BEAUACTIVE®, a potent Hydroxystearic acid of high purity which is manufactured using green technology. DSM researchers discovered that, in vitro, BEAUACTIVE® activates the master cell regulator PPARα which triggers multi-target effects for better skin. More>


PEPHA®-AGE: Stimulates skin’s own defense against sunlight

Sun irritation is considered as being potentially the largest contributor to skin ageing. The need of using sun filters (PARSOL®) is generally accepted, however there is still a lack of attention on biological processes ongoing in skin after light exposure that goes beyond UV light only. At the same time there is increasing demand for natural, sustainable ingredients with proven performance.

Specialized in the development and manufacturing of active ingredients from natural origin, DSM researchers have identified, for the first time, the potential of the freshwater algae Scenedesmus rubecens to stimulate skin’s own defense against the negative impact of sunlight. More>
