    By 2030, the median age in the US will be 40 and there will be more women between the ages of 40 and 64 than women under 18.  According to the Female Founders Fund, answering the needs of women experiencing menopause is a $600 billion opportunity for companies—including those selling skincare, cosmetics, haircare and wellness products.

    In one AARP study, 58% of women said they are more likely to purchase products from brands that use women who like like them in their advertising.  But there’s a lot more to it than that.

    Products need to be formulated to address the needs of this powerful consumer base, who is undergoing change and holds the purse strings.

    In this Happi webinar, three experts will discuss menopausal and peri-menopausal skincare and beauty:

    • Deborah Kilgore, Global Director of Skincare Knowledge, Paula’s Choice  

    • Hope Mitchell, MD, FAAD, Board-Certified Dermatologist and Founder & CEO of Mitchell Dermatology

    • Denise Herich, Co-Founder and Managing Director, The Benchmarking Company

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Register Now!

    Water and packaging reduction has become a significant trend for many personal and home care formulations. Functional Acids help to achieve both of these sustainability goals. They offer several benefits for water-less applications like tablets and powders, including better flow, handling, storage stability, moisture resistance, compressibility. Functional Acids and compounds that fit into clean label applications are naturally occurring and derived through the fermentation process, further modified or blended with other natural-based ingredients. Tablet products made with CITROCOAT® N, coated citric acid, and CITROCOAT® EP, the proprietary effervescent compound, demonstrate better storage stability, visual appearance, disintegration properties.

    This webinar will zoom in on Functional Acid technology and discuss relevant personal care and home care applications. This technology can be applied to a wide range of products like shampoo, face scrub, shower steamer tabs, household cleaning tabs, etc.

    Over the years, it has been a challenge for the personal care and cosmetic industry to develop and maintain an effective cleaning program with the tendency for manufacturers to reformulate 30% of the portfolio each year. Continuous introductions of new, and difficult to clean raw materials within formulations can increase the challenge. Evaluating these challenges and determining the best cleaning program is essential for the productivity and quality within personal care and cosmetic facilities. 

    During this session, we will cover considerations for common, yet difficult soils, as well as investigate and provide technical insights on new formulations and raw materials that we have seen coming to market and increasing in popularity. As part of these insights, we will share stories from our research and development laboratory and provide practical steps manufacturers can take during the early stages of product development to ensure the cleanability of formulations. Additionally, we will provide advice regarding the types of cleaning chemistry offerings, especially targeting a portfolio of specialized cleaners for the personal care industry, that manufacturers can utilize in their regimens to save time, labor and resources.

    Connect with Consumers with Naturally-Derived Ingredients and Transparency

    To stand out in the marketplace, an indie brand must source great ingredients and effectively communicate how those materials work synergistically in a final formulation to deliver efficacy. Clearly communicating your brand’s approach to product development and the formulation’s benefits—not just an individual ingredient—can build trust with consumers.

    In this webinar, experts in product formulation will discuss their approach to formulation and how they use transparency to showcase the efficacy of their products and their companies' ethos.

    High water activity provides the perfect environment for microbes to grow, greatly reducing shelf life. Since water is the solvent of choice in so many personal care and cosmetics, this creates a challenge. Preservatives prolong the shelf life and efficacy of these products by inhibiting microbial growth. As consumers trend towards “free from” claims, formulators have to develop and perfect innovative ways to maintain the shelf life we’ve all come to expect. Jungbunzlauer has recently evaluated organic acids; like lactic acid and derivatives to assist with preservation support. These compounds, particularly zinc lactate, show promise as bio-based, multifunctional ingredients, offering a range of additional benefits outside the scope of preservation support. In this webinar, we will take a closer look into these compounds and explore all of their potential benefits. 

    • Learn about lactic acid and zinc lactate and explore their use in personal care and cosmetic products 

    • Explore the efficacy of lactic acid and zinc lactate as preservative boosting compounds

    Increased consumption of cleaning products is the new normal during and after COVID-19, as cleaning and disinfecting routines occur with greater frequency in household and industrial settings. These behavior changes have caused consumers to scrutinize the safety and sustainability of the products they use.

    This webinar will discuss methods and ingredients to ensure your formulation meets current and evolving consumer needs, such as sustainability, ready biodegradability, robust preservation, and a desirable health and safety profile. Guidance will be provided to optimize the full formulation, leveraging synergies between green ingredients to achieve enhanced performance and robustness. Case studies will be presented to demonstrate effective use of anionic surfactants, green chelating agents, multifunctionals, and Kalaguard® SB preservative.  

    Join us to learn how you can successfully navigate the changing trends providing consumers with effective products and peace of mind.

    In recent years, more cosmetic companies are realizing the greater need to organize products, formulas, and raw material documentation and data.  As the work of global compliance and product registration expands and grows more complex, it is imperative that a company’s intellectual property and product data be consistently organized and accessible across the enterprise. 
    Additionally, in this era of providing more ingredient transparency for products to global regulated bodies, there is an added challenge from the many retail ingredient policies to provide documented “clean” beauty products.  
     
    The key to successful launches is speed and accuracy. This presentation will address methods and best practices for using screening tools to achieve both.

    Discussion Points:

    How to evaluate the quality of your existing data organization, and the drawbacks of building a centralized repository of raw material documents and data on your own.

    How your company can benefit from the speed and accuracy that comes from an Information Network's ability to build compliance reports.

    What to consider when planning the collection of  Raw Material documentation.

    How to organize your data for the most effective compliance screening.

    In sunscreen formulations, several components act synergistically to provide effective protection to sun-exposed skin. Alongside the UV filters, emollients influence sensory perception of the product and enhance performance. In this webinar, we will take a closer look at the use of citrate ester emollients in this context.

    Citrate esters are bio-based emollients derived from citric acid. Among Jungbunzlauer’s portfolio of citrate esters, triethyl citrate (CITROFOL® AI) and tributyl citrate (CITROFOL® BI) show the most promise, and have a long history of safe use as emollients in various personal care products. Our data shows these emollients possess remarkable advantages for sunscreen formulations. The excellent solvent power of Tributyl citrate provides a cost-efficient means to achieve high-SPF while allowing flexibility regarding co-emollients. Triethyl citrate is a 100% bio-based emollient, distinguished by a pleasant sensory profile and potential to boost UV-A protection. Together, these compounds provide formulators with additional tools to improve sunscreens with bio-based ingredients.
