DSM, one of the industry’s leading suppliers of ingredients and innovative solutions to the personal care, home care and fine fragrance markets, will be showcasing “Beauty EMPOWERED” solutions at booth #855 at NYSCC Suppliers Day in New York on 15–16 May 2018. DSM will also present new exciting data on cosmetic alternatives in facial contouring.
In the era of increased transparency in personal care, there is a lot of focus on the efficacy of ingredients. As savvy consumers digitally chronicle their cosmetic benefits in real time via social media, the onus to deliver consumer-perceivable performance and “Instagram-worthy” formulations is at an all-time high. In response, DSM has leveraged its most cutting-edge technologies to come up with beauty-empowering ingredients and formulation concepts in four key areas:
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics report, 78% of dermal filler procedures in the USA use hyaluronic acid (HA). Their reversible and natural-looking effects make HA fillers highly sought after. In fact, HA procedures are the fastest growing non-invasive cosmetic treatment, outpacing procedures like Botox, chemical peels, laser hair removal, and microdermabrasion. Google trend analytics from May 2018 report that over 500, 000 Google search results are related to the term “hyaluronic acid”. When hyaluronic acid content in the skin decreases, the result is a loss of volume in key areas of the face including the cheek, under-eye and jaw line and the popularity of current HA procedures in the US is spurring on consumer demand for cosmetic products to address these effects.
At this year’s show, DSM will unveil new research on a cosmetic ingredient with scientifically proven volumizing and firming benefits for all key facial zones. SYN®-HYCAN is a patented cosmetic tripeptide proven to boost skin’s own renewal of hyaluronic acid. DSM will present an extensive new package, including in vitro and ex vivo data to measure increases in hyaluronic acid content. Our new in vivo data shows significant improvements in skin firmness and moisturization across multiple facial areas using a high-resolution 3D measurement system for skin topography changes. A high majority of study panelists have also reported a noticeable increase in skin suppleness, smoothness and moisture, as a result of using the cream containing SYN®-HYCAN.
