Cognis and Laboratoires Sérobiologiques supported its “green and beautiful life” efforts with the introduction of a number of products designed to appeal to the environmentally conscious consumer. Euperian Green, marketed as a “green” ethylene oxid and amine free pearlizing wax dispersion, is intended for use in hair and body cleansing formulations. In addition, Cognis presented the “Ageless Beauty” range, in conjunction with its active ingredients division, Laboratoires Serobiologiques. Cetiol Sensoft, “the happy emollient,” contains a selection of natural oils and waxes, and “Litchi Pure Cleansing Milk,” with Moringa proteins, is said to protect the skin from environmental toxins.

Botaneco featured its Hydresia ingredients, aqueous dispersions of intact oleosomes isolated by a solvent process from the seeds of the safflower. Oleosomes are natural oil storage reservoirs found in every type of seed that preserve and protect seed oil from rancidity and oxidation. Hydresia ingredients are said to offer versatility, simplified formulation and improved efficiency in formulating at room temperatures.

Rhodia featured Miracare Plaisant, a natural plant-based surfactant system for cleansing in personal care solutions. The plant-based ingredients are, according to the company, sulfate-free and VOC-free.

The McIntyre Group, Ltd. offered paraben-free and formaldehydr-free preservatives and antimicrobial emollients, including Mackaderm GCP and Mackstat GCM. The ingredients are formulated to combine the antimicrobial functionality of the glyceryl ester with a broad spectrum antimicrobial, and exhibits an excellent environmental profile, according to the company.

Presentations included a discussions on active plant Ingredients by Tom Gianfagno, PhD, Rutgers; active fragrance technology by Stephen Dente, VP, R&D, Robertet Fragrances; the "greening" of the beauty Industry by Michael Balick, PhD, The New York Botanical Garden; and on-shelf cosmeceutical products by Karen Young, The Young Group.
