All for a
pretty face
With regard to the face, people have always understood how to accentuate the facial features offered by
nature. While the make-up artists use make-up products and brushes as their tools, in this digital age,
mostly with the help of Photoshop etc., people create
unachievable beauty ideals.
The journalist Esther Honig has carried out an interesting experiment on this subject. She has identified

ideals, which can be
seen at!before–after-/cvkn.
The experiment shows how strongly the beauty ideal
is linked to the face.
It’s no wonder then, that the facial care sector has
grown significantly in the last five years. According
to information from Euromonitor*, in this period
facial product sales increased by 26.8 percent to
87,446.8 million US Dollars worldwide.
Interestingly the growth in Europe over the same period was rather modest at 6.4 percent. In North America the figure was 15.7 percent.
Above-average growth was seen in the Asia/Pacific
region. Here the growth figure was a huge 35.6 percent and in 2013 led to sales of 47,579.2 million US
Dollars and the lion’s share of the global market.
The category which generated the highest sales with
30,894.1 million US Dollars worldwide was moisturising products. The second highest category was antiageing products, that recorded sales of 24,645.3 million US Dollars. Although moisturising products have
such a strong turnover in the facial care market the
growth was, at 24.7 percent, smaller than anti-ageing
products. Sales here have grown since 2008 by 39.1
percent and interestingly there was an even bigger
growth rate in a small sector with global sales of
4,250.7 million US Dollars – namely the facial mask
market. Here sales grew by a significant 43 percent
since 2008.
And how could you, and your products, achieve increases
in sales? Well, in addition to creative product ideas a lot of
know-how is needed. What about some clever formulations for very mature skin? You can learn, starting on page
12, about the requirements that the 65+ age group expects from marketing experts. And with what ingredients
could you create such products? Petra Schlegel of Greentech fills in some gaps for us.
Hagen Döring and Laura Gallego of Provital also cover anti-ageing in their article starting on page 16. They present
in-vivo and in-vitro results that demonstrate just what a
sesame-based active can do in filling wrinkles and adding
volume to the lips.
And the way that an active with a nutrient taken from milk
can activate the cells’ detoxification system is explained by
Harald van der Hoeven of CLR, starting on page 10.
And these are just the topics from our facial care focus this
month. On top of all this we have collected plenty of interesting information and news for you. Come and be surprised!

The future
of natural
This is where distinguished parties in the natural cosmetics
business will meet
Natural Cosmetics Industry Congress 2014 I
The international natural cosmetics industry congress*, which
is organised by the Naturkosmetik publishing house, takes
place this year on the 7th and 8th of October at the Hotel Ellington in Berlin. The focus of the event will be Natural Cosmetics
2020. This will include future growth strategies for future scenarios. For example the future researcher Harald Welzer and
design researcher Lola Güldenberg, will talk about how the
trade and industry will be able to react to social changes. International experts will clarify the finer points of the market from
different perspectives. They will offer “best practice” examples
and present some innovative approaches for the trade.
Furthermore topics such as future growth strategies, design for
the future, packaging offensives for natural cosmetics, the new
self-awareness of consumers, new approaches to the trade,
resource effective ways to gain new clients, slow retail turnover
and expansion of international markets will all be covered.
The expert discussion on the first congress day will cover the
expectations of natural cosmetics customers and the orientation they want for themselves. On the second day the experts
will run a podium discussion about future strategies for the natural cosmetics sector. In Forum A Alexander von Keyserlingk,
will cast more light on the subject of individualisation in the
retail trade, with some in-depth information. Forum B will be
focussed on the subjects of raw materials safety and acquisition, plus efficacy testing.

Dual approach to cellular nutrition:
Active ingredient with nutrients from milk
can be digested by skin cells and activate
the cellular detoxification systems
Harald van der Hoeven of CLR presents ProBioBalance NP,
an active ingredient composed of probiotic bifidobacteria disintegrated in a bioactive milk-based nutrient. In vitro and in vivo tests
demonstrate that it nourishes the skin and also activates cellular
waste disposal and recycling. The result is a detoxifying and skin
balancing effect.
ilk (see box) has a long
standing reputation in the
history of beauty. Cleopatra,
for example, bathed in milk to enhance
her skin’s youthfulness. Since the start
of this millennium, the use of milkbased active ingredients in cosmetic
formulations has shown strong and
continuing growth. By fractionating the
different proteins and peptides from
milk, active ingredients are obtained
with a multitude of extremely benefi-
cial effects on the skin, whether they
are anti-wrinkle and firming effects or
ingredients which are specifically suitable for the care of strongly inflamed
and troubled skin.
Combining the use of probiotic bacteria in a milk-based nutrient is something the food industry has been doing
successfully for quite some years now.
“Pro bio” means “for life,” and the probiotic bacteria, consumed orally, are
thought to be maintained in the gut,

binding to intestinal epithelial cells
and preventing the growth of pathogenic bacteria, thus promoting gastrointestinal health. Additionally, probiotic bacteria have been shown to
possess many beneficial effects on the
immune function. In the intestines
they do so by stimulating the intestinal epithelial cells – not like a whole microbe, but with their structural components and metabolites. This has been
reported to lead to (among other effects) an improvement of the barrier
function of these cells.
Bifidobacterium is one of the most
important probiotic bacteria used in
the dairy industry. In adult intestines,
only 3–6% of the flora is composed of
bifidobacteria, while in breastfed infants bifidobacteria can constitute up
to 90%. With increasing age, the number of bifidobacteria decreases. It was
observed that babies and adults with
lower levels of bifidobacteria have a
higher risk of diarrhoea and allergies.
This is why bifidobacteria are added
as a probiotic supplement to infant
formulas, drinks, and yogurts.
Applying probiotic bacteria topically
might be beneficial to the skin for cosmetic purposes, but is not feasible, as
introducing and managing live bacteria
in cosmetic formulations is difficult.
Moreover, the harsh environmental
conditions on the skin prevent the colonization of skin by probiotic bacteria. As
mentioned above, however, it is the
structural elements and metabolites
which are essential in obtaining biological benefits from probiotic bacteria.
Cosmetic active ingredients on the
basis of lysates of probiotic bacteria
have been shown to lead to powerful
active ingredients for skin care, especially when combined with milk pro-

Lysosomes are the digestive system
of our cells. A battery of lysosomal enzymes digests food ingredients, macromolecules, and cellular debris. The
more lysosomes are active, the better
the cell is nurtured.
Keratinocytes were grown in a complete medium providing optimum nutrition with and without our active ingredient. After 72 hours the complete

Activating cellular waste
disposal and recycling
Cellular waste can be disposed of
and made available for reuse by autophagy. During this process, cellular
waste is engulfed in autophagosomes.
The autophagosomes then fuse with
lysosomes, allowing for the digestion
of the cellular waste. The outer cell
membrane of autophagosomes contains a unique protein called LC3B,
which serves as a general marker for
autophagic membranes and for monitoring autophagosome production as
they develop. Cells were grown in the
presence of our active ingredient. At
different concentrations, it shows an
increase in LC3B*, leading to the conclusion that it induces autophagosome production and, therefore, cellular waste disposal and re-use.

teins, essentially mimicking probiotic
Nutritional cosmetics are a large
and strongly growing segment of the
personal care market. Consumers understand the need to “feed” the skin
with beneficial ingredients from cosmetic skin care formulations.
The active ingredient ProBio
Balance CLR NP consists of probiotic
bifidobacteria disintegrated in a bioactive milk-based nutrient. It constitutes
a complete approach toward probiotic
nutrition for the skin by providing the
skin and the skin cells with essential
nutrients from milk, which are endocytized, after which the so-called endosomes fuse with lysosomes, enabling
the digestion of the nutrients (see
fig. 1). Yet it also contains another, new
approach toward skin nutrition.
In essence, especially in older skin,
the skin cells accumulate high amounts
of defective and damaged cellular components. The accumulation of this cellular “waste” is considered to be one of
the hallmarks of ageing. Interestingly,
the active ingredient based on probiotic bifidobacteria is able to activate intracellular systems, allowing for the disposal and recycling of cellular waste,
which essentially means that it can activate cellular detoxification systems and
enable the re-use of the waste. The endpoint of the activation of these socalled autophagy processes, during
which cellular waste is “engulfed” by autophagosomes, is similar to that of providing the cells with essential nutrients
from milk – the cells become healthier
and more vital (see Fig. 1).This dual approach to cellular nutrition illustrates
its potency as a cosmetic active ingredient for skin care formulations.
and the strains of everyday life. Under
stress conditions we are more shorttempered, our immune system deteriorates, and our skin becomes more
sensitive, easily irritated, and thus vulnerable. Our active ingredient acts as a
protective shield for the skin. It helps
reduce irritability of the skin and at the
same time protects it from additional
stress. The less the skin is irritated, the
more balanced it is.
An in vivo study with 20 volunteers
demonstrated that our active ingredient leads to a more balanced skin: Defined skin areas were treated with SDS
to induce redness (irritation). The decrease in redness was then recorded for
skin areas treated twice daily with a formulation containing 5% of our active
ingredient and compared with a placebo and certain untreated controls. On
Day 9 the SDS treatment was repeated
and the development of skin redness
recorded. An O/W cream with 5% of our
ingredient was shown to reduce the visible signs of skin irritation, and the skin
Beneficial effects of milk
Milk contains many nutrients that keep us healthy. The
most important of these are proteins and calcium. Milk
also contains phosphorus, which is used with calcium to
build and maintain bones. Many other minerals and essential amino acids are also present in milk, but in smaller
amounts. Riboflavin and other vitamins, fat, and sugar
(lactose) provide the energy in milk and the flavour that
makes it taste good. Especially milk produced directly
after birth, colostrum, has exceptional biological activity,
which is important for the stimulation of development
processes in newborns.
was much better protected against
damage compared with the untreated
cream and the placebo (see fig. 2).
Increase in metabolic activity
A seemingly logical consequence of
cellular nutrition – whether by supplying nutritive elements or activating cellular waste disposal and re-use – is
that the skin cells become more vital
and show higher levels of activity. This
is indeed the case using our active
ingredient. In an MTT assay – a colorimetric assay where the activity of
NAD(P)H-dependent oxidoreductase
enzymes is quantified – the metabolic
activity of cells, which allows them to
grow and reproduce, was determined.
The metabolic activity of cells was increased depending on the concentration of our active*.

The very mature skin
A special demand placed
on the marketing team
The lifetime experience,
and ability to evaluate a
product, of those over 65
call for product concepts
with clear benefits
People over the age of 65 tend to set great store on their external
appearance6. And so how can the cosmetics sector respond to this
need? Petra Schlegel of Greentech shows what these very special
consumers expect from products in this sector, and what are the
most useful and sensible ingredients.
he question of the so-called “Baby Boomers”, who of course are
now part of the main market, not
only applies in Europe but to the
world. The percentage of older people
in the world population is increasing
all the time, and this brings with it the
need to tackle, head-on, the problem
of skin ageing.
Active substances that are intended
to combat and repair the ageing
process must work with the hormones
and the skin’s immune system in order
to provide a proper balance of the
substances that the skin cannot supply
in adequate quantities.
Tackling intrinsic skin ageing
Hormone production falls off with
increasing age.
Whilst in men the testosterone level slowly but constantly reduces from
the age of about 40, the reduction in
hormone levels in women falls off
relatively quickly.
Skin ageing can be tackled on two
levels. There are plenty of actives on the
market to combat extrinsic or environmental ageing effects. These are, however, largely useless when tackling intrinsic biological (genetic) skin ageing.
COSSMA 9 I 2014
When one’s hormone
production starts to fall back
The signs of hormonal skin ageing
in 80 percent of women over the age of
60 can clearly be seen.
Phytohormones which, unlike oestrogen and progesterone, may be used
in cosmetics, work particularly well
against this hormonal skin ageing. By
phytohormones we mean substances
of plant origin such as isoflavones,
cumestans and lignanes, that are
found, for example, in soya, cotton
seed (Gossypium herbaceum seed),
red clover (Trifolium pratense) and
ladies mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris).
The polyphenol structure of the
isoflavones is similar to that of oestrogen and so they could bond with estradiol receptors in the skin.
For the Lignostimuline active only
cotton seed from Burkina Faso is used
because this is particularly rich in lignane. It has been developed to target
precisely genetic skin ageing. The
active stimulates the synthesis of
collagen I, supports the structure of
the connective tissue and so improves
the skin’s elasticity.
With Soybean Isoflavones Greentech
research was able to develop an active
which neutralises the activity of peroxide radicals and protects the cell membranes. This intense active for postmenopausal skin focuses on the phytohormonal action of the isoflavones
contained in the formulation.
Reduced defensive wall
Even the skin’s own immune system
becomes less effective with age. This is
in addition to the limitations of the
skin’s acid protection layer where the
number or level of langerhans cells
that belong to the skin’s defensive wall
are reduced1,7 in size and so the ability
to defend against wound infection is
also reduced.
Here Greentech turns to the science
of traditional Chinese medicine. The
COS1409_12_Greentech_GB_COS1405_10_Croda_D 25.08.14 13:10 Seite 13
shiitake extract in Biomoduline activates, in a natural, fresh manner, the
defensive cells in the skin and also
works against free radicals.
It reinforces the skin’s natural protection mechanism and activates immune-competent cells such as langerhans cells, keratinocytes and macrophages.
Steps towards reducing
extrinsic skin ageing
In cases of extrinsic skin ageing one
will see deeper wrinkles than normal,
the connective tissue becomes tired
and the skin’s pigmentation becomes
flecked and uneven. 62% of those between the ages of 51 and 60 already experience this problem4. We have no real data for those over 65, however one
can assume that the problem increases
with age. Because UV light is a prime
accelerator of the ageing process extrinsic skin ageing is often called photo-ageing.
Elastosis – and the secret
of the zebrafish
Whilst humans can only repair certain damaged limbs and organs to a
limited extent, fish and amphibians
have an amazing capacity for self-heal.
Scientists at the University of Konstanz
have shown for the first time that
retinoic acid, known in dermatological
acne treatment, is indispensible for
“Retinoic acid activates a gene that
protects the replacement cells2 from
fatality.” The molecule, obtained from
vitamin A, triggers various genes in humans and animals which are important
for the development. “An artificially increased concentration of retinoic acid
increases the cell division rate in the
blastema*”, confirmed Prof. Dr. Gerrit
Begemann who is studying the action
of retinoic acids in zebra fish.
“As soon as we reached a targeted
genetic change in the fish and temporarily prevented them from producing retinoic acid there were also no
more blastemas being produced.”2
Even the very best cosmetics alone
cannot of course produce a new skin.
Current efforts in dermatological research are however moving in the direction of regeneration.
Very mature skin, especially in the
light-exposed areas of the face and
neck, tends to become harder. If the tissue around the eyes, the temples and
the mouth becomes knotted and hard
we call it “elastosis senilis”. This form
of elastosis is seen mostly in older people with light coloured skin of type I or
II, and with little pigment protection.

Based on years of intense exposure to
the sun the collagen fibres become degenerated.
So what can we now learn from the
zebrafish? To act against existing elastosis senilis vitamin A acid treatment
and expanded therapies with hormones containing oestrogen were
used in the past.
Vitamin A acid has been forbidden
for use in cosmetics for several years
now, but can be used in dermatology
under the name of Tretinoin. A natural
alternative is available in the form of
COS1409_12_Greentech_GB_COS1405_10_Croda_D 25.08.14 13:10 Seite 14
the active substance Setiline, which
was compared in vitro with the action
of vitamin A acid.
With regard to the differentiation of
the keratinocytes and the compacting
of the epidermis this active is comparable with retinoic acid. In addition it
achieves an improved skin barrier function and cell cohesion. The reduction
in wrinkles can be seen after 28 days
with the naked eye.
Getting to grips with
pigmentation spots
Free radicals are produced in almost all physiological processes, but
are intensified by UV light. We work on
the basis that up to 90% of ageing
processes can be traced back to UV
Pigmentation spots are not the result of ageing. One woman in three,
over the age of 40, suffers to some degree or other from hyperpigmentation.
However, the pigmentation increases
with age and is regarded as highly undesirable. To offer some help to the
65+ age group there are actives like
Clerilys W.

Whilst the ageing percentage of the
population is on the increase the
younger target group, with the buying
power, is getting smaller. Consumers
older than their mid-fifties tend to use
less cosmetics and personal care products5, but do a great deal to stay young
in terms of their clothing, their freedom, fitness and general appearance.
Simply “bringing products to the
market” is just not enough according to
this most critical consumer group, who
in addition to good value for money also want to see some evidence of efficacy5. Based on their lifetime experience
and their outstanding ability to judge
a product, the demands of this consumer group are more complex and
multi-layered. For cosmetics aimed at
the older generation it is also important that certain wrinkles will (in combination with cosmetic care) be testament to a person’s experience of life
and self awareness, and pick out a
senior citizen who enjoys life. So there
is no “nor” involved in anti-wrinkle
What can cosmetics manufacturers
do to reach this consumer group with
their new products? The answer is: offer products that are really relevant,
with a clearly recognisable user benefit
and which appeal properly to the consumers’ physiological, emotional and
demographic needs.
At the same time these products
must also be appropriately designed,
formulated and marketed. In concrete
terms this means packaging with a
clear and easy to follow label and authentic messages, which do not ever
play on the fact that these are for older
consumers. The best thing is to meet
the real needs of this constantly growing consumer sector, with no running

s we age, our skin undergoes a
number of changes. One of the
most important is the loss or
redistribution of facial volume and
subcutaneous fat, which modifies the
face’s balance and which is one of the
most visible signs of aging. This makes
our folds and wrinkles become more
accentuated, especially those around
the mouth and eyes, and also leads to
a loss of lip volume1.
Dermal fillers are currently among
the most popular methods used to fill
wrinkles and expression lines and replace facial volume. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons stated that, in
2012, these fillers were the second
most popular non-surgical anti-ageing
treatment, after Botox, with more than
2 million applications in the USA. In
addition, lip augmentation is also a
common treatment for retaining a

invasive procedures can often give rise
to unexpected results and a potential
loss of harmony between the injected
features can lead to an unnatural appearance.

do not complete their final differentiation into functional adipocytes capable of synthesizing and accumulating
fat8. This reduces subcutaneous fat,
particularly around the eyes, on the
forehead and around the mouth.
Decreasing the effects
of less subcutaneous fat
Restoring a natural volume distribution is one of the main objectives of
facial rejuvenation, and can now be obtained with the help of cosmetics. It is
possible to reverse the ageing process
by stimulating the first phases of the
preadipocyte’s final differentiation;
this decreases the effects of the loss of
subcutaneous fat.
Linefill is a natural active obtained
from seeds of sesame – Sesamum indicum, a plant native to Ethiopia. It is a
Components of adipose tissue
One of the main characteristics of adipose tissues is that it has a highly heterogeneous
cell population, however, the majority of cells are mature adipocytes3:
• Preadipocytes are cells that are predestined to differentiate only into adipocytes.
They still retain a phenotype similar to that of a fibroblast, but they have already developed
the enzymatic machinery of an adipocyte, although they are not able to synthesize or
accumulate lipids.
• Adipocytes are the most common cells in adipose tissue. They have a rounded shape
when they are isolated and become polyhedral when they are grouped into lobes.
One of their functions is the synthesis and accumulation of lipids (in a large triglyceridefilled vacuole).
COS1409_16_Provital_GB_COS1409_16_Provital_GB 25.08.14 13:12 Seite 17
fraction rich in sesamin, which belongs
to a group of compounds called lignans. This active stimulates the body’s
natural mechanisms, allowing it to
promote a more natural and attractive
redistribution of facial volume in the
area around the mouth and lips.
Linefill is able to activate PPARγ (see
box 2) by acting as a ligand or agonist,
which stimulates the conversion of
preadipocytes to adipocytes, resulting
in more mature adipocytes that are
able to synthesize and accumulate
Proven in vitro effects
Triglyceride quantification is a biochemical indicator of adipocyte differentiation or adipogenesis. In order to
quantify triglyceride concentrations in
the adipocytes, the cells were lysed
and the triglycerides (TG) hydrolyzed
to obtain glycerol, which is measured
by optical density.
Linefill was shown to increase the
amount of triglyceride stored in
adipocytes for all concentrations
tested. Triglyceride levels increased
by some 30% at a concentration of
430 ppm. Thus, the active ingredient
stimulates the early stages of adipogenesis (preadipocyte differentiation to
mature adipocytes) and increases lipid
synthesis and storage capacity.
Oil-Red O staining was carried out
to allow the variation in triglyceride accumulation obtained by stimulating
adipogenesis to be seen under the microscope: The number and size of the
lipid vesicles increased, showing that
the preadipocytes have successfully
differentiated into fully functional, mature adipocytes that are able to accumulate more triglycerides.
Proven in vivo efficacy
A double blind comparative study
was conducted in order to evaluate the
in vivo efficiency of Linefill as a wrinkle
filler and lip volumizer when compared
to a placebo. The reduction in wrinkling and roughness was determined
using the capture and comparison
of 3D images by fringe projection
(PRIMOS) both on D0 and on D28. The
efficacy of Linefill was evaluated in
three areas with different types of wrinkles, in order to demonstrate that it is
effective against all types of wrinkles:
nasolabial fold, supralabial area (barcode wrinkles) and the lateral wrinkles
photo: Andrey Starostin,
that appear at the ends of the lips
(marionette lines).
The active ingredient decreased the
volume of the nasolabial fold by 9.2%
compared to the start of the study (D0).
This result was 7.8 percentage points
(pp) better than that obtained by the
The active ingredient reduced the
number of supralabial wrinkles by
45.6% compared with D0 and with a
significant difference of 19 pp compared with the placebo. The volume of
the wrinkles in this area decreased by
12.1% in the group treated with the active ingredient, while in the placebo
group this value increased by 10.7%.
There was therefore a statistically significant variation between the two
groups, with a difference of 22.8 pp.
In the case of lateral wrinkles, or
marionette lines, the number and volume of the wrinkles was measured. A
comparison of the decrease in number
and volume of these wrinkles in the
treated group when compared to the
placebo group showed that the efficacy
of the tested ingredient was statistically significant. The number of lateral
wrinkles for the group treated with the
active ingredient decreased by 58.8%
when compared with D0, with a significant difference of 19.2 pp compared to
the placebo. The active ingredient produced an 18.5% decrease in lateral
wrinkle volume, with a significant percentage difference of 17.9 pp compared to the placebo.
Natural active obtained
from seeds of sesame
The vegetable based active ingredient increases the accumulation of
lipids in the adipose tissue, providing
a greater volume to the areas that have
lost their shape over the years. It perceptibly refills wrinkles and cutaneous
folds and has a potent volumizing effect on the lips, giving a rejuvenated,
attractive and relaxed face.

The differentiation process
During adipogenesis, the cells look increasingly less
like fibroblasts as they become more spherical. Large
changes in cellular morphology also take place
at this time, both in the cytoskeleton and in the extracellular matrix4.
This phenomenon is a process comprised of multiple
steps involving various transcription factors, which regulate
the activity of more than 2,000 genes and allow the development and differentiation of adipocytes 5.
Adipogenesis involves two different phases: The determination phase converts stem cells into preadipocytes and in
the terminal differentiation phase the preadipocytes develop
the characteristics of mature adipocytes. These, in turn,
acquire the cellular machinery necessary for the transport
and synthesis of lipids.
The key to this process is the level of transcription factors,
especially C/EBP (CCAAT/enhancer binding protein) and
PPAR (peroxisome proliferation-activated receptor). The
differentiation phase starts with the expression of C/EBPβ,
which increases the expression of PPARγ. PPARγ becomes
activated when bound to a ligand, stimulating the expression of C/EBPα, which in turn also increases the expression
of PPARγ, forming a positive feedback loop6. In this process
lipid droplets are formed in the cell cytoplasm, which
increase over time and fuse until one or two large lipid
droplets occupying a large part of the adipocyte are
Wrinkle refill
Fringe projection (PRIMOS) was
used to evaluate the increase in lip volume. As well as reducing wrinkles and
redness, the active ingredient also increased lip volume by 23.1%, in a way
that was clearly superior and statistically significant when compared to the
placebo, with a difference of 24.8 pp.

New preservative trends
React fast,
with safe alternatives
photo: Alex011973,
Considering regulatory and marketing
requirements, cosmetic product preser vation within the range of approved
preservatives is becoming increasingly
difficult. Dr. Jan Jänichen of Dr. Straetmans sheds some light on the development and trends in preservative legislation
and further discusses safe alternatives
for the future.
hat is the right preservative
system for my finished cosmetic product? For a long
time now, this question has been neglected by most formulators. European
legislators created a list of approved
preservatives, called Annex V (former
Annex VI) of the EU Cosmetic Regulation. This list is filled with a wide range
of substances that have been raised
with respect to antimicrobial efficacy
and beyond that had little influence on
the physical parameters of the cosmetic product. This comfortable situation
has fundamentally changed in recent
years. Today, the application of a growing number of listed preservatives
has been restricted, due to their skin
irritating or sensitizing potentials. In
some cases preservatives were first restricted and then finally even banned
and deleted from the list.
A major obstacle for the development and listing of new preservatives
comes from the animal testing ban,
which is firmly anchored in the Cosmetics Regulation. All these circumstances are limiting the selection of
approved preservatives and are complicating the development of new cosmetic products.
Cosmetic products in general, especially oil and water emulsions, offer
microorganisms ideal growth conditions and therefore need to be preserved. Preservation is achieved by antimicrobial ingredients, whose proper-
COSSMA 9 I 2014
Multifunctional additives with antimicrobial properties perform similarly to traditional
preservative systems
ties also bear a potential for undesired
skin side effects.
This is why, years ago, legislators in
Europe started to regulate the application of preservatives in cosmetic products. The regulation restricted the
choice of suitable preservatives to
those, whose safety was evaluated in
toxicological tests.
The approved preservatives have
been listed since 1982 in the respective
current version of the Cosmetic Directive/Regulation, together with restrictions regarding their application, if
necessary1. The current version of
the positive list is Annex V of the
1223/2009/EG Cosmetic Regulation.
The approval of new preservatives
in Annex V is a complex procedure, including extensive toxicological studies. Once approved, preservatives are
subject to supervision by local authorities. They collect data about observed
side effects and hand in this information to the “Scientific Committee on
Consumer Safety” (SCCS) of the European Commission. This experts committee evaluates the existing data and,
if necessary, recommends to restrict
the application of a preservative or
even to delete it completely from
Annex V.
Short life cycle on Annex V
The life cycle of a preservative on
Annex V can be illustrated using the example of Methyldibromoglutaronitrile
(MDBG). In 1983, after its admission,
MDBG was well-accepted amongst
cosmetic formulators, due to its reliable antimicrobial properties and
good price-performance ratio. In the
course of its popularity, MDBG was increasingly applied in cosmetic products. But its extensive use correlated
with an increased number of reported
cases of contact allergies. In 2005,
the SCCS recommended a restriction
of MDBG application to rinse-off
products, which in 2007 led to a general ban of MDBG and its deletion
from Annex V2.
For a range of other, even more popular preservative systems the SCCS has
issued recommendations which sooner or later could become legal regula-

Safe and future-proof
Cosmetic developers principally
have two possibilities of adjusting
their preservative system in a cosmetic
formulation. They can either alter their
existing preservative system according
to the new regulations or they exchange problematic preservatives and
rebuild their preservative system from
scratch. At the beginning, the latter solution is definitely more labor-intensive, but in a longer term perspective
some interesting marketing opportunities may arise. In the end, a smartly
designed preservative concept helps to
avoid bad press and prevents cosmetic
consumers from adapting to future
regulatory or public pressure.
That raises the question: What does
such a smart preservative system look
like? One way to circumnavigate legislative regulations of preservatives is

tions. Another important factor determining the fate of a preservative lies in
the hands of public perception. Media
reports and theme-based internet
blogs can quickly discredit the reputation of a preservative in the eyes of the
consumer. In case of the parabens, this
happened even though scientific data
reaffirmed their safety. As a consequence, marketing departments of cosmetic companies are forced to react.
They pressure their product development team in order to find alternative
preservative systems for their products. Not surprisingly, under such pressure and in a short time range, many
formulators resort to preservatives,
whose skin intolerance has simply
been forgotten.
A good example is the renaissance
of Methylisothiazolinone (MIT). Since
the early 1980s, MIT, as a part of
Kathon CG, has been known as a contact allergen. Nevertheless, in the mid2000s, MIT was advertised intensively
as an alternative for the comparably
harmless parabens. Not surprisingly,
after a short period of marketing, MIT
received the title “Contact allergen of
the year”3. Ever since, the opinion in
the market has prevailed, that preservative systems should be in line with
current trends or – from a long term
point of view – in accordance with legal
requirements and that readjustment of
preservative systems has to be accompanied by competent partners.
Perspectives of selected preservative systems (green = good, red =bad)

have demonstrated that these multifunctionals can serve as an excellent
alternative to listed traditional preservatives4.
However, the budget of a cosmetic
product doesn’t always allow for the
application of multifunctional additives. So the question is: What preservatives from Annex V are safe and can be
used with a clear conscience? Regarding their long-term perspective, a closer look at the science, legislation and
public perception of some of the regularly used raw materials can result in
the following picture.
IPBC and Methylisothiazolinone are
already heavily restricted in their application and formaldehyde-donors and
parabens suffer under a bad reputation
amongst the general public. However,
in comparison, organic acids and aromatic alcohols are quite safe in their
For Phenoxyethanol first inquiries

have emerged5. This could increase the
pressure to look for alternatives, even
for this widely-used preservative.
Formulators who wish to implement a long lasting system based on
listed preservatives, should search for
systems with a long history without
side effects and negative press reports.
Furthermore, to minimize the risk of
upcoming skin side effects, a decrease
in preservative concentrations, by exploiting synergistic effects of raw materials, is recommended.
Verstatil blends in which only listed
preservatives with a clean record are
implemented.apply to these goals.
They are combined with multifunctional additives in a way that synergistic effects occur. Lower possible preservative concentrations are the result,
which do not solely minimize the risk
of undesired side effects but likewise
decrease the cost of the final cosmetic

who wins.
Dr. Joachim Gottfreund of Sebapharma: SMEs are characterised by the fact
Why is it particularly difficult for SMEs
to bring innovative products to the
Dr. Rainer Wohlfart, Kneipp: Prod-
that the means at their disposal are
used in a particularly efficient way. The
available resources are always limited,
and yet we have to face up to big
groups in a competitive environment,
and be selected by the consumer off
the shelf. Financially this means that
not only the development costs have
ucts that are really innovative, i.e. that
are something new in terms of quality
and real performance, can only be
achieved with the help of a competent
and assertive R&D department. This is
of course an immediately costly procedure and a lot of people would prefer
to invest their money in market research and promotion.
When market research says “good”
that applies only to average product
acceptability – not innovation. However as a rule this does not apply to innovative products. The most striking example is the area of fine perfumery.

The demands placed on
SMEs have grown enormously in the last 30
years, and there is no
end in sight for this development. I
fear that the very smallest companies –
by which I mean those who turn over
less than 10 million Euros – will have
no chance of survival in the future. And
that is a very sad position.
One is already surprised at the high
product quality, product efficacy and
innovation potential that SMEs offer
today. But small companies do not
have big marketing budgets. They can
only depend on the product performance itself. On the other hand smaller
companies can still take advantage
of short decision-making procedures.
Although we are the subsidiary of a
group, we can take advantage of short
decision-making routes at Kneipp. And
this is a real advantage if the company
wants to react quickly to a changing
market. I am very happy with this situation, which is surely one of the reasons why I have been faithful to the
company for almost 30 years.

What are the special demands placed

to be recovered, but also budgets have
to be set aside for marketing.
Andrea Weber, Babor: We have little
time for internal research. Real research takes a long time, and does not
offer any guarantee of success. This
makes real innovation difficult. This is
why we work with research partners
such as the RWTH or the Fraunhofer
Institute. As a medium sized company
we can take advantage of this knowhow.
What ways are there to overcome these
Dr. Rainer Wohlfart, Kneipp: Good
contacts with technical colleges and
with professors at these places are the
real A to Z of it. And here I don’t just
mean contact with the relevant departments that immediately come to mind.
I also think here about psychologists,
molecular biologists or microbiologists, and generally about the possible
networking of different departments
that otherwise would have little, or no,
inter-departmental contact. And internally we have developed the idea of a
Kneipp high competence team. Today
this team consists of more than a
dozen scientists and the impressive
factor is the number of new points of
view and ideas that are generated by
this interdisciplinary contact. We have,
for instance, working with psychophysiologists, been able to make wellness
measurable. The resulting aromacological findings today make a major
contribution to the optimisation of our
products. We also offer topics that can
be covered by numerous doctor, master and bachelor works.
Our work on the skin barrier pointed
the way for the new trend towards
lower pH values in body care products.
Dr. Jürgen Blaak, the present head of
our “medicine” resource, was awarded
Despite limited resources, faster than the competition
the young researchers prize by the German Society of Cosmetic Chemists.
Dr. Joachim Gottfreund, Sebapharma: We see the following ways to over-
come the typical difficulties:
1. Be quicker than he competition.
Take new routes to development
and marketing.
2. Define one‘s consumer group without any scatter loss.
3. Find targeted partners for a joint
effort right through the project.
Andrea Weber, Babor: It is important to be well informed all around the
market. Which research work is being
published, and how can we use it? A reliable network of information sources
is what is needed, for instance at ingredients exhibitions, and/or scientific
congresses and conferences such as
the annual IFSCC event.
Can you provide examples to show
that small and medium sized companies can also be innovative?
Dr. Rainer Wohlfart, Kneipp: Just
look at the diverse range of innovation
prizes that have been attracting companies in our sector for years. It is
amazing just how many prizes are
awarded to the SMEs.
Dr. Joachim Gottfreund, Sebapharma: The introduction of the Sebamed
Dry Skin range with phytosterols is a
good example. This new development
has shown that the phytosterol ingredient – an ingredient previously used
only in specific circumstances for dry
skin – enjoyed considerable market
In addition a patent was awarded to
Sebapharma as part of the product development programme for high dosing
of phytosterols.
Andrea Weber, Babor: We were, for
example, one of the first companies to
use plant based stem cells in our finished products. The launch of Derma
Optimizers in the Doctor Babor range,
where an individual treatment is assembled depending on the condition
of the skin, was also such an innovation.

A bath additive
specially for men
t is really amazing. If you go through
the Internet looking for bath products for men you do not find much
except maybe for a 2-phase product
with the name of Beer Treatment. This
however is probably more a joke than a
serious product offer. The fact is that
men clearly spend a lot less time soaking in the bath than women do. According to Olivier Andrès, marketing
manager of Kneipp, 32 percent of
women bath at least once a week. For
men, however, this figure falls to only
19 percent. And just about 35 percent
of German men never bath!
But perhaps it was simply a problem of men not feeling really attracted
by the flowery or fruity aromas of bath
additives. Andrès is convinced: “Men
would spend a fair bit more time relaxing in the bathtub if they came across
the right product”.
The new aromatic body care bath
additive from Kneipp, with a totally
masculine fragrance, and which will be

surely help here.

Silicones – Multitalented
for cosmetics?
photo: Graja,
Silicones can be combined
and expanded in a versatile
way as the basic ingredients
Around half of all cosmetics products contain silicones1. Prof.
Dr. Andrea Wanninger and Theresia Köhler from the Niederrhein
University of Applied Sciences take a look at what makes these
multitalented substances what they are today, based on new
technical developments.
n times of BB and CC creams the
“5-in-1” or the “48 hour” claims play
a multifunctional and particularly
valuable role as ingredients for cosmetics. No other type of compound
used in cosmetics is to be found in so
many different sectors as organically
modified silicones with their tailored,
combined effects.
Current cosmetic trends
at a glance
A trend analysis by Dow Corning2
has indicated that the four main
themes of Pro Studio (professional applications), Luminance (external glow),
Multi-Task and Jelly (new textures) will
dominate the market. Long lasting pigment-rich products will be the subject
of strong demand as well as those that
offer a lighter, even skin tone. Softfocus effects are becoming ever more

each other in many ways as building
blocks, and also improve their own
functional features. They are also extremely versatile in their physical
form and characteristics. There are for
example volatile substances, liquid
emulsifiers, oils, waxes, powders, elastomer gels, resins, macro and micro
emulsions and dispersions.
New multifunctional ingredients
contain, for instance, silicone segments alternating with organic polymers such as Belsil P 1101 from Wacker, which when used for hairstyling offers good elastic curl retention and a
silky feel. The product is also highly
suitable for long-lasting nail polish. Or
a basic silicone framework is combined
with the chemistry of alkylglucosides
in the Belsil WO 5000 emulsifier, also
from Wacker. The hydrophilic moisturiser and skin conditioner EL-7040
Hydro Elastomer Blend from Dow Corning in 2013 won a prize for the best new
ingredient2. It produces a fresh, silky
feel, is suitable for use in make-up,
gives body to the formulation and is
relatively compatible with organic
Silicones and their critics
important and new, refreshing, fruity
textures are on the way.
For 2016 BASF sees trends of Colorful Self, Ancient Wisdom (beauty of
simplicity), Woman of Power (sensual
yet strong) and Third Act (celebrating
pro-ageing)3. This will all drive the requirements placed on the performance
of cosmetic products. Especially in the
make-up sector we can find everything
imaginable, from the “nude look” and
up to dramatic “metallic looks” and
futuristic nail polish colours.
In all of these trend-setting sectors
special silicones can be successfully
The “construction kit”
for a large number of jobs
The secret of silicones (or to be
more precise “polyorganosiloxanes”) is
in the fact that they can combine with
The fact is that synthetically produced silicones and hybrid materials
act as a spur for those seeking something new. Supporters of natural cosmetics nevertheless complain that
silicones are in fact artificially produced chemicals. Other people criticise the fact that, unlike hydro-carbon
compounds, silicones are not biodegradable, or only their organic components are.
Small amounts in the
product – but a big impact
On the other hand silicones are often used in only small amounts in a
formulation, and yet have an important effect on the quality of cosmetic
Other than the limitations that are
part of the chemical structure of silicones, the particularly good surface

activity and their suppleness and softness can be attributed even to the
simplest polydimethylsiloxane (dimethicone).
What other ingredients can promise
to offer a de-foaming, water-repellent
action and at the same time a reduction in the tackiness of emulsions, and
that calls for a concentration level of
only about 1%?
What type of emulsifier can, at concentration levels below 3%, best stabilise highly fluid lotions or ensure
that a sun cream stays stable at up
60 ºC? Among the organomodified silicones the Abil product range by Evonik,
is a very high performance range, as
seen in the Abil EM 180. This high
molecular W/O silicone emulsifier, for
warm and cold processing, is characterised by the fact that it needs only
a very low dose and yet covers a
very broad range of applications.
Even at high temperatures it remains
stable and is compatible with electrolytes and active components in the
Typical requirements
and claims
There is a constantly growing market for hair colorants, hair care and
styling products calling for modern
conditioners and styling aids. And of
course it is all about protecting hair
that is damaged by styling tongs and
UV radiation, aiming to keep its colour,
and for unstressed silky hair to hold a
nice style. Good wet and dry combing
performance, anti-static action of conditioners that do not weigh down the
hair, low stickiness, and rapid drying of
styling polymers, are all additional requirements that emulsions using
amino-functional silicones can fulfil.
PEG-free micro-emulsions like Abil
ME 45, which contain a hydrophobic
silicone quat, are suitable for clear
shampoos and conditioners. They are
easy to process and remain colourstable. Hair conditioners, hair and
body shampoos, leave-in conditioners,
styling products and hair colorants are
all applications for this product6. Wacker’s macro-emulsion Belsil ADM 6300
E offers improved combability and antistatic effects. Dow Corning’s CE-8411
Smooth Plus Emulsion has an action
that makes the hair feel “like a river of
silk”, and meets all of the requirements
with regard to gloss, colour protection

and effective conditioning. Silsoft*
AX-E from Momentive Performance Materials contains 45% of an emulsified
amino-functional silicone and is top of
the hair heat protection products7.
The specific advantage of silicones
in hair and skin care often lies in the
fact that not only do they perform the
task required, but also they have an immediate positive, sensory feel when
applying cosmetic products.

Optimum pigment distribution, a
glowing skin and a silky softness are
essential features of facial care products. Silicone waxes like Evonik’s AbilWax range improve the spread of emollients and UV filters, silicone resin fix
fragrances on the skin, and silicone
elastomer blends offer exciting new
At the same time silicones like Dow
Corning’s EP-9801 Hydro Cosmetic
Powder also add a visual soft-focus ef-
fect because they can fill wrinkles and
also absorb oils and sebum.
Sun protection products should
have as high a protective factor with
the lowest concentration of filters.
They should also repel sand and be
waterproof, spread well and have a
pleasant skin feel.
Easy to apply spray products are
setting the trend. For sunscreens silicone waxes, emulsifiers and organo-
silicone gels, such as Velvesil* 034
from Momentive Performance Materials, are used.
Silicones in colour cosmetics play a
prominent role because here the demands for colour, hold and skin and
eye tolerance are all very high. The
products give volume and allow a longlasting effect. For lipsticks Belsil REG
1100 from Wacker is frequently used,
whilst silicone resins are used for
eye-shadow and mascara.
Phenyl-modified silicones such as
Dow Corning’s 556 Cosmetic Grade
Fluid or Belsil PDM 1000 from Wacker
reduce the white specks and tackiness
of AP/deo products. These silicones,
thanks to their high refractive index
compared with simple dimethicones,
give a light gloss and shimmer and can
hence be used mainly in colour cosmetics and hair care.
Dow Corning are following new
ways with silicones in the problem of
hair removal, above all in the Indian
Thanks to its better spreadability
silicone means less product to be applied, and after use there is a velvety

Moisturisation for the skin
and hair
Functional fillers against wrinkles
Merck I Ronaflair Flawless is a new functional filler from Merck
which works against wrinkles. The substance takes advantage of a
visual trick: spherical particles roll into and fill out the wrinkle, dispersing light evenly in all directions. The interplay of light and shadow
that generally highlights these imperfections is minimized to give the
skin an overall even appearance.
The new functional filler is composed of silica spheres coated with
titanium dioxide and iron oxides. The uniform shape of the substrate
and the sophisticated coating technology lead to an excellent soft
focus effect. Featuring balanced transparency, it maintains the skin’s
natural appearance. A pleasant skin feel provides a high comfort
level when wearing the product. Its ease of use is valued in powder
formulations as well as in foundations and emulsions.
Croda I The number of body care products that draw on the
“superfoods” concept has, in recent years according to Mintels
GNPD data base, more than doubled. The two new biopolymers
Hydrosativum P and Crodasone P come from the superfoods category and are both derived from the superfood Pisum sativum which
is popular for its high protein content, unique assortment of phytonutrients and antioxidant properties. Both biopolymers are rich in
glutamic acid, asparaginic acid, arginin and lysin, which have important properties for skin and hair.
The Hydrosativum P biopolymer supplies the skin intensively with a
strong moisturisation, it is anti-irritant and so is also suitable for scalp
care products. It becomes anchored into various types of hair of different ethnic origins, hydrates the hair in areas of varied air moisturisation and increases its flexibility to avoid hair breakage. The Crodasone P copolymer protects the hair’s cuticles from excess heat and
styling damage. Thanks to its complex polymer structure, as it dries
the ingredient forms a protective and conditioning film. The results of
tests and studies show that the copolymer in a spray formulation reduces hair breakage due to heat by about 49%, and in a conditioner
system by 38%.

Rahn I Illumiscin is designed to eliminate age spots and to provide a bright skin. A balanced composition of oleuropein, vitamin C
and zinc PCA effectively fights against both pigments responsible
for the appearance of age spots – melanin and lipofuscin. Rahn
could already show that Illumiscin diminishes the size and reduces
the contour contrast of age spots. Now a new in-vivo study, carried
out in European winter and spring, reveals that following the application on the back of the hands the active has a lightening effect on
age spots under winter sun (depigmentation) and inhibited new pigment formation under spring sun (repigmentation). It could also be
demonstrated that Illumiscin controls age spots without lightening
the surrounding skin. The lightening effect on age spots is much
stronger than on surrounding skin areas, while conventional skin
lighteners reduce the

Make-up removal
New methods for
efficient testing
ake-up removers are usually
supplied in the form of
cleansing lotions and cosmetic wipes. But do these cleansing
products perform as promised? Researchers at the Hohenstein Institute
have now developed a technical skin
substitute which allows close examination of the cleansing performance
of cosmetic products.
A skin substitute helps to test the cleansing performance of
make-up removers faster, more efficiently and at lower cost
than using expensive volunteer tests.
The sector of decorative cosmetics,
at about 1.4 billion Euros, is one of the
main contributors to the turnover of
the cosmetics industry. According to
the statistic portal Statista, around 13
million women used eye make-up
products in Germany in 2012. In order
to succeed in a competitive market a
whole range of new technologies and
innovations have been developed, and
are selling well in drug-stores – especially leave-on products which have
an improved degree of adhesion. But
make-up that adheres better is of
course that bit more difficult to remove. This requirement is a challenge
to cosmetic cleansing products.
A skin substitute –
just like our own skin
photo: Kuttelvaserova Stuchelova,
To test the cleansing effect of cosmetic products until now it was necessary to conduct a costly volunteer test
programme. This led the team of the
department Hygiene, Environment
and Medicine from the Hohenstein Institute to think about the idea of a new
test system which is based on a standardised technical skin substitute.
New test method to evaluate the efficacy
of make-up removers means that costly
volunteer testing is no longer necessary
COSSMA 9 I 2014
This skin substitute simulates the
physiological, mechanical and also
thetopographic properties of a healthy
human skin.
The surface of the skin substitute is
characterised by a rhombic skin structure, and the physiological parameters, such as pH value, moisture content and transepidermal water loss
(TEWL) are also similar to human skin.
The short name for the artificial skin
model HUMskin, is adapted from the
English words “human” and “skin”.
of the cleansing effect
To analyse the cleansing performance of new cosmetic products the skin
substitute is marked with a defined
amount of slightly radioactively labelled make-up particles. Then the
make-up particles are subsequently removed by a special rubbing device using different cleansing products under
standardised conditions. With the help
of a scintillation detector the amount
of radioactively labelled make-up particles on the HUMskin is quantitatively
determined, so an objective assess-
Facial cleansing at a glance
Make-up, dirt and dust particles, as well as dead skin cells, are all stress factors for the skin,
and tend to favour the formation of skin impurities. If make-up particles are left on the skin
they block the skin pores. The skin can no longer breathe properly and the nightly regeneration
process is disrupted. In order to bring the complexion to a glowing state the next day the
face should be thoroughly cleansed. In particular when it is a matter of removing eye-liner,
eye-shadow and eyelash make-up the quality of the cleanser is most important.
Because the skin around the eyes is up to 8 times thinner than on the rest of the face,
and is so much more sensitive, the eye make-up used should be removed particularly carefully,
quickly and thoroughly.

For an initial comparison the researchers selected a wet-wipe soaked
with cleansing lotion as well as various
textile cleansing pads which were
soaked in liquid make-up remover. The
selected cleansing products were then
tested against the HUMskin which was
prepared with eye-shadow and liquid
make-up prior to the cleaning test.
Both products were non-smear and
waterproof. The results clearly show a
difference between cleansing products. In case of eye-shadow a soaked
pad of liquid eye make-up remover exhibited a better cleansing effect of up
to 70% in comparison with a cleansing
pad soaked in lotion, for example. Furthermore the influence of the textile
material used to apply the lotion was
able to be shown. The cotton wool pad
performed better than the cellulose
Efficient and cost-effective
Using this new cleansing test it will
be possible to evaluate the efficacy of
cosmetic cleansing products objectively under standardised conditions
without needing volunteers. This offers
cosmetic manufacturers, both in terms
of quality control and product development, an interesting alternative to
costly and time consuming volunteer
tests. Furthermore the technical skin
substitute opens up further possibilities of testing for answer a broad range
of other questions concerning the skin
Hence the HUMskin can be used also for microbiological analyses or performing odour testings on the skin. To
prepare the skin substitute for further
test areas the team headed by Prof. Dr.
Dirk Höfer is currently working on applying artificial hair to the skin substitute as well as on a simulation of a
sweating HUMskin model.

Smallest flip-top cap tube

Albéa I Dermophil recently selected My Little Cap, the industry’s smallest flip-top cap tube, for its Soin Universel face
and body cream sampler tube. It delivers the same look and
functionality as larger solutions, but in an ultra-compact diameter size that makes it an ideal choice for sample packs. In addition to the ergonomic benefit of
one-hand opening, the flip-topcap requires a high pull force,
which makes it safe for children.
The white, 10ml tube is 19mm in
diameter with two-colour offset
printing. The cap is green, and finished with a matte varnish. This
product has been awarded “Plastic Tube of the Year 2014” by the
European Tube Manufacturers Association
(ETMA), thanks to its

and remarkable user
Bakic I The Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae is a key
ingredient in the Astaxanthin cosmetics range by Bärbel
Drexel and in the packaging, design elements of the underwater world were heavily called upon.
The natural reddish colour of the active is seen not only in the
cosmetic product as a light reddish tint, but also in the strong,
shimmering red of the primary packaging, designed to be
customer-specific. The pigment-rich varnishing also protects
the natural, light-sensitive product. A hand-drawn illustration of
an under-water scene makes it even more clear that the active
is of maritime origin. A logo enhanced with silver foil stamping, and a design element of fish and algae support the premium product positioning.

Exclusive design efficiently produced

Sappi I Meteor is a polygonal sample pack which can be easily and automatically produced without expensive processing stages, just like
a four-sided carton. The specialist paper manufacturer Sappi used its Algro Design SBS intense white cellulose board. It has a rigid form, a
small transport volume and is able to be given a high quality decoration. A specially configured Gallus ICS 670 is, with its modular versatility,
able to respond to the increasing demand for economically designed and yet elegantly decorated packaging.
The printing, which was previously confined to larger print areas, should also look more
attractive in small runs based on the new production technique.
For sample packaging the whole range of decorating techniques was used, including flexo
modules, cold and hot foil stamping, two pigment inks, UV gloss and a tactile soft dispersion
material, plus blind embossing, die cutting and grooved finishes all in one work process.
The demands placed on the design of the carton included clear motif edges that could be
defined using cold and hot foil finishing, embossing and varnishing effects.
The special shape of the carton with its filigree, straight cut and inwardly bevelled sides,
reminiscent of a cut diamond, reveals the reflexive finishes to their best advantage.
The polygonal form ensures that the carton is very steady, allowing lighter, and less expensive, environmentally sustainable material to be used. This will perhaps get branded goods
companies to think again about transport and logistics costs when reviewing classical,
rectangular cartons.
Despite its unusual shape the package is erected, filled and distributed just like a normal carton – in large and small quantities and at all speeds. Viewing windows in the carton to enable
the consumer to have direct sight of the products are also available.
An efficient in line production and a maximum effective look,
are very much shown by this polygonal carton

Stölzle takes silver
New two-chamber dispenser
Stölzle I At the international Starpacks Awards two of
Stölzle’s finished bottles were given silver awards for their design
and production technique: the Teint Visionnaire make-up
bottle from Lancôme and the Ultimate 38 YO whisky bottle from
In terms of make-up bottles three items were combined in one
container: liquid make-up in a glass bottle, a concealer in the lid,
and a small mirror to help easy application whilst on the move.
Johannes Schick, CEO of the Stölzle Glass group commented:
“With both products the trick is in the complex mould construction, and of course also in the extravagant decoration.”
In addition to the Starpacks Awards three other products from
STO were nominated for the British Luxury
Packaging Award.
Gaplast I Airless Vario Duo is the name given to the
newly developed dual dispenser which is now ready for
series production. The two-chamber system allows the
quantity delivered by both components to be independently
adjusted. This means, in concrete terms, that the user can
freely choose how much of each
component is to be delivered at
each shot.
The required mix is easy to set
and then the pump stroke is selfadjusted. Because the product is
based on a normal standard
pump it is less costly than similar
products. The integrated spring
ensures that when in use not
so much pressure has to be
overcome, and that dispensing
is cleanly done.
