Using Data and Screening Tools to Commercialize Your Products

Using Data and Screening Tools to Commercialize Your Products

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.

Improved Sun Protection with Citric Acid Derivatives

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.

Xanthan Gum: Clean Your Label, Clean Your Hair

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

Register Now!

Viscosity modifiers play a major role in the sensory experience of the user when it comes to shampoos as well as hair styling products. However, choosing the right ingredients can be difficult with evolving regulations and the demand from consumers for more bio-based alternatives. Xanthan gum is a naturally occurring, biodegradable polymer with qualities uniquely suited for numerous hair care applications. With xanthan gum, formulators can meet the requirements for natural shampoos without a negative impact on product performance. We will demonstrate the benefits and versatility of xanthan gum by highlighting its effectiveness in both a sulfate-free shampoo and styling product.

 

Discussion Points:

 

Xanthan Gum’s Unique Chemistry and Benefits

  • Fermentation-derived, with a unique chemical structure.
  • Excellent compatibility with a multitude of ingredients including salts and surfactants.
  • Biodegradable and well suited for natural cosmetic formulations.

 

Xanthan Gum in Hair Care Applications

  • Sulfate-Free Shampoo—There is a growing need for sugar-based/sulfate-free surfactants in cleansing products and xanthan gum shows very good stability to such surfactants. A unique grade of xanthan gum showing reduced psuedoplastic properties can work well with these sulfate-free surfactants while still providing a similar sensory experience to other traditional thickeners.
  • Hair Styling Product – We will demonstrate that it is possible to replace synthetic thickeners and styling polymers in a hair gel.

A New Spotlight on Pandemic Preservation

A New Spotlight on Pandemic Preservation

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

Skin care is the leading category in the natural preservatives market. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, preservation has become a discussion topic; namely, natural preservation and its efficacy. In addition, trends like the language shift from “natural” to “sustainable” have affected the way consumers evaluate personal care preservation.

 

While feel and sensory remain important to the consumer when purchasing personal care products, the need/want for effective and safe ingredients is driving consumer behavior. The term “effective” is paving the way for new formulations. As consumers flock to products that are proven to work, backed by science, preservation chemistry will be top of mind. Acme-Hardesty offers a solution to preservation challenges through our partnership with Sharon Laboratories and their green, new ingredients.

 

In this webinar, we will explore the challenges of finding the right preservation system and how to incorporate green preservative technologies into formulation while maintaining efficacy.

 

Ingredient Highlights:
 

  • SharoSENSE™ Plus 181 N - Combines the best features of natural ingredients, with the safety, quality, and consistency of the lab.
  • Sharomix™ Amplify Line - Offers broad spectrum and superior activity, allowing a significantly lower level of use in a finished product of ~ 0.5%. LESS preservative delivers MORE protection.
  • Biosecur® Natural Organic Personal Care - Provides excellent antimicrobial protection, effective in wide pH range, and is a certified organic preservative.
