Specially designed with DSM’s customary expertise to deliver on people’s everyday beauty aspirations in skin care and sun care, our fully substantiated consumer benefits featuring VALVANCE® showed great appeal among our customers at the In-Cosmetics trade show, in Hamburg (Germany) in April 2014, where the launch of VALVANCE® was announced. Visitors to our booth were invited to experience the sensorial world of beauty in specially designed sensorial cocoons.
