Sun protection: DSM’s heritage PARSOL® brand is set to expand

DSM is heading off into the blue – by extending its broad-spectrum UV protection into the blue light. The company will not only supply two new UV filters for maximum broad-shield protection, but is supporting customers with a novel conceptual proposal for holistic blue light protection.

Hair care: how daring are you?

Last year DSM issued a challenge: Dare to change your hair. And it evidently touched a nerve, as DSM consumer insight research around the world, including new data from Brazil, confirmed. Feedback showed that a large majority of women would like to be more adventurous with their hair. It also revealed they are looking for novel products, testers and samples to provide an impulse to get creative.

So this year DSM is backing its challenge with more concepts, formulations and versatile yet reliable ingredients from its TILAMAR® hair care and styling product range that put the fun back into experimenting, and empower women to express themselves freely.

Skin care: PEPHA®-AGE - stimulates skin’s own defense against sunlight

DSM’s PEPHA-AGE is a sustainably sourced and produced extract of the freshwater microalgae Scenedesmus rubescens (green algae) which has high resistance to sunlight. The extract is produced in state-of-the art photo-bioreactors using a biotech process, and contains a unique mixture of amino acids, vitamins (B3), lutein, algal sugars and minerals (zinc).

In-vitro tests with PEPHA-AGE showed it stimulates the skin’s own resilience through improved fibroblast viability and regeneration after UV and blue light stress, and increased total collagen levels. Ex-vivo studies confirmed the collagen increase and revealed a reduced number of sunburn cells after exposure to UVB radiation.

Hence PEPHA-AGE helps limit epidermal damage caused by exposure to sunlight and to the blue light, in particular, minimizing signs of photo-aging and restoring skin’s radiance.
