To better help R&D and marketing teams in their product innovation journeys, Global Cosmetic Industry has launched a monthly series breaking down not only the latest ingredients, but also the trends, market data and relevant claims those technologies respond to. From consumer search data to advancements in sustainable chemistry, this regular bulletin will help beauty professionals scope out their next differentiating breakthrough.
Encapsulated Bakuchiol for Time-released Anti-aging
Berg+Schmidt will soon debut BergaCare SmartLipids Bakuchiol (Psoralea corylifolia), a lipid-based delivery system, at the forthcoming 2023 in-cosmetics Global in Barcelona (March 28-30).

It also reportedly restores the skin’s barrier and has formulation advantages, even in aqueous applications.
Last year, Spate reported 4.0K average monthly searches for bakuchiol serum, a retinol alternative that is increasingly popular due to its tolerability on sensitive skin.

The top concerns searched alongside retinol are acne (34.3K), wrinkles (20.1K), aging (7.2K) and scarring (6.6K).
