DSM Personal Care to showcase its latest product innovation, scientific and formulation expertise at in-cosmetics Asia

Kaiseraugst, CH, 26 Oct 2015 12:00 CET

DSM Personal Care will be attending the 2015 in-cosmetics Asia trade show in Bangkok on 3-5 November and presenting its latest innovations in personal care on Stand K30. Visitors are invited to participate in Innovation Seminars and in a Formulation Lab where DSM experts will shine a spotlight on the latest research in the fields of skin and sun care.

SYN®-COLL – Ethnic anti-ageing expert

New for in-cosmetics Asia, DSM will showcase its recent in-vivo study results conducted with DSM’s powerful synthetic peptide SYN®-COLL – a potent synthetic tripeptide developed to mimic Trombospondin-1 activity in activating latent TGF-β. Comprehensive in-vitro tests have demonstrated its effectiveness in stimulating collagen synthesis and protecting it from degradation through the inhibition of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP).

The new in-vivo study conducted among Chinese volunteers revealed fascinating results. After just one month, a formulation containing 2.5% of SYN®-COLL outperformed a market benchmark in the fight against lines and wrinkles. It also refined pore appearance, improved skin texture and revealed a beautifully-lifted, sculpted look – features usually perceived as being vital for beautiful skin appearance by many Asian women.

AMPHISOL® K - The power of robust emulsification

Visitors to the DSM booth will also have an opportunity to learn about the latest research results on its signature oil-in-water emulsifier, AMPHISOL® K. New comparative science data will show formulators how to overcome current challenges posed by high UV filter and pigment loads over a broad viscosity range when using AMPHISOL® K. In addition, the new data will also illustrate the potential for development of a new generation of highly sophisticated sunscreens and day care products which combine a high level of protection, while delivering sensorial attributes that promote consumer compliance.
