“According to Mintel, 7.4% of all facial skin care launches in Asia Pacific incorporate an anti-pollution claim, with 6.4% in Europe. Nearly 4000 beauty care product launches globally between 2009-2013 included the word “pollution” in their description," explained Tony Craske, market segment director personal care, Azelis.

On the Azelis stand, visitors can learn about the impact urban life has on hair and skin. Skin and hair care solutions include products that wash away environmental pollutant particles from the skin, and inhibit the adhesion of particulate pollution to the hair shaft. Key anti-pollution functions include combating skin irritants, targeting receptors to limit and prevent inflammation, reducing protein oxidation mechanisms and protecting skin cells. Daily defense products that deliver skin renewal, nourishing and hydration benefits also play an important role in urban lifestyles.
