Naturals in Cosmetic Science

The Society of Cosmetic Scientists (SCS) Annual Conference is one of the leading cosmetic science events in the calendar in the UK. Taking place online from 6 – 8 July, this online conference is a key platform for the exchange of new ideas and research discoveries in our industry. The event brings together

hundreds of people from all parts of the category, from formulation chemists to regulatory experts, academics to marketing managers and raw materials experts to packaging technologists. The theme of this year’s

conference is Naturals in Cosmetic Science – Saving Our Planet. For this event the SCS has brought together leading scientific experts

and opinion formers in the field to help attendees navigate through this very complex area. The aim is for people to leave the conference feeling excited and inspired to do more to promote environmental sustainability, but also to have solid scientific evidence and processes on which to base their actions. The cosmetics industry needs to change to meet environmental sustainability challenges. This conference will help cosmetic scientists deliver these changes. The programme for the event

and registration details can be found at www.scsannualconference. com. The Delegate fee starts from £60 (inc VAT).

Biodegradable rheology agent

Solvay has introduced a new biodegradable rheology agent, Rheozan BLC, a natural and ready-to-use liquid polymer solution that delivers high suspension power in the home and personal care products, yet without any impact on the formulation viscosity. “Solvay’s new Rheozan BLC

combines the best of science and nature. It is an innovative and flexible ingredient that leverages the full power of biotechnology with beneficial functions and excellent sustainability credentials,” said Jean-Guy Le Helloco, Global Vice President, Home and Personal Care at Solvay. “This COSMOS-certified ingredient enables new formulation possibilities and addresses the market demand

for biodegradable solutions, making it a win-win solution for formulators and consumers.” Rheozan BLC is derived from

grey biotechnology. Its synthesis is based on starch fermentation by carefully selected bacterial strains that generate very uniform cellulose fibres. When added to the home and personal care formulas, these nature- engineered fibres build a regular three-dimensional mesh, creating a highly effective suspension mechanism. It can suspend and stabilise visual cues such as pigments, natural exfoliating particles, perfume capsules, air bubbles, opacifier or emulsion, and insoluble agents such as zinc pyrithione or minerals.
