2016 marked the eighth Cosmetagora show which has become highly regarded and well attended with more than 120 exhibitors for 2016. This was the third annual contest that awards the three most innovative formulations from the forty eight different participants that entered this year. The top three awards went to IFF Lucas Cosmetics, SICAF and Arkema Innovative Chemistry. Croda’s Ice Cream Emulsion did not fit into any of the existing award categories but the judges were so impressed by the formulation that they created a brand new “Coup de Coeur” prize to recognise Croda’s outstanding innovation.
The Ice Cream Emulsion was developed at Croda’s Shanghai laboratory in China where the trend for this type of product was first identified. Collecting the award were Pascale Rossi, marketing manager and Guillaume Douillet, sales manager for Consumer Care of Croda France.
In other news, the latest launch from Croda is Prolevis, a new high molecular weight protein hydrolysate that is able to instantly smooth the skin, visibly reducing the appearance of surface wrinkles and imperfections, according to the company.
With up to 75% of consumers highlighting that Prolevis gave them instantly smoother looking skin, it is ideal for anti-aging formulations.
