Each year, we launch trend-driven marketing campaigns to inform and inspire formulators. For example, our K-Beauty campaign showcased formulations based on the Korean 10-Step skin care beauty regimen. My Beauty recently launched to break the boundaries around beautiful through personalized, multifunctional products that redefine beauty. The campaign included My Skin UnMasked- a range of sheet masks in Hydrate, Rebooted, Selfie-ready, Lightly Veiled, and Sun Protected which leveraged the power of fermented plant extracts from one of our key suppliers:

The Art of Natural Solution is a leading manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients inspired by traditional knowledge of oriental herbal remedies, with a portfolio of natural and certified active ingredients including MYFerm™: Undaria pinnatifida, Leafresh™: Nelumbo nucifera and BDS-Huanqi™: Astragalus membranaceus:

MYFerm™: Undaria pinnatifida is commonly called sea mustard in English, miyok in Korean, and wakame in Japanese. It is an edible brown seaweed native to and growing in East and Southeast Asia. In traditional medicine, this seaweed is well-known for blood purification and detoxification. MYFerm™ is a liquid fermented extract of U. pinnatifida made by applying probiotics L. acidophilus to break down complex polymers for better penetration and absorption of active compounds into the skin. The collagen synthesis level is significantly increased when fermented.

Leafresh™ Nelumbo nucifera, also known as lotus, is an aquatic plant which rises through muddy water to produce pure and uncontaminated flowers. This feature makes it a symbol of purity and resurrection. Lotus leaf is widely consumed as a food, a tea drink, and is used in folk medicine. It is believed that all diseases are cured by drinking the tea consistently for a long period of time. Leafresh™, an extract from lotus leaf, shows anti-pollution effects and protects skin from UV radiation and oxidative damage.

BDS-Huanqi™: Astragalus membranaceus is a medicinal herb called Huangqi in Asia. It is one of the most important medicinal herbs in Asia and its root is used for to promote health and to help replenish the body’s energy. It contains polysaccharides, polyphenols and an abundance of saponins. BDS-Huangqi™ is an extract from the sprout of A. membranaceus cultivated in a special facility based on the Bio-Dynamic Sprout (BDS) system, and shows outstanding anti-oxidant and anti-wrinkle effects.

Critical to formulating high performance beauty products is the combination of active ingredients supported by robust test data with an optimized vehicle of emollients, emulsifiers, and rheology and texture modifiers. With Univar Beauty and Personal Care’s portfolio and expertise, formulators get the full package.
