For example, in-cosmetics Group’s first ever Formulation Day – running on June 13 – will impart technical information, practical advice and consumer insights, enabling the region’s cosmetic chemists to establish a competitive advantage over their international colleagues.
In addition to receiving a wealth of benefits from attending exclusive sessions run by product development experts, each attendee will receive a Formulation Booklet that features 30 new formulations from 17 international suppliers – including AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry Pte, Ashland, Grant Industries, Lucas Meyer Cosmetics and Seppic Asia.
Cosmetic chemists are also invited to attend the coveted Formulation Awards to identify new concepts and ingredients, as well as networking with hundreds of industry peers. Judges have pinpointed 16 formulations – developed by suppliers’ R&D teams – that are on-trend and are stand-out innovations. A full shortlist is available here.
From June 13-15, R&D professionals will be able to identify new ingredients and technologies from more than 250 of the world’s leading suppliers. Curated by three leading beauty experts, to help navigate the show floor, in-cosmetics will feature three product trails that highlight innovations in anti-pollution, encapsulation and preservatives.
Among the 11 ingredients on the anti-pollution trail will be Mibelle’s award-winning Moss Cell Tec that taps into the natural resilience of moss to maintain cell nucleus health; CoSeedBiopharm’s Dust Smart Solution that inhibits inflammation to prevent ageing signs; and bitop’s Ectoin which harnesses the power of natural extremophiles to prevent cell damage.
in-cosmetics Korea’s trails will also enable R&D teams to efficiently identify novel ways of encapsulating formulations. Among those selected are Solabia Group’s Solapearls Active Color – a 3D-based next-generation capsule that is applied mainly for anti-pollution and anti-ageing purposes; Evonik’s ‘Delivery Systems’ customised capsule solution that can be utilised for various purposes, including anti-pollution, anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle; and Biogenics’ ‘Oil Capsule’ that prevents the oxidation of oil and can be utilised effectively in anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle areas.
The third trail – preservatives – puts the spotlight on 10 innovations that will ensure the viability of a formulation. Shin Seung Hichem Co will present Shines-115P, a new emulsifier that provides antimicrobial activity and can be used as the sole emulsifier in oil-in-water emulsions, while Lonza’s team will showcase Geogard Ultra – a COSMOS and NATRUE-certified, halal and vegan compliant preservative that offers broad antimicrobial performance and complementary moisturisation benefits.
A full list of all products on show in the three trails can be found here.
“This year’s event has been developed with one objective in mind – to help R&D teams further cement Korea’s position as the capital of the beauty industry. Our new Formulation Day will inspire cosmetic chemists, helping them create new ideas and craft more effective formulations, while the suppliers on show will provide R&D teams with the most efficient way to identify and source new ingredients,” said Sarah Gibson, exhibition director of in-cosmetics Korea.
