Title:  Sustainable Ingredients Science: Application to cosmetic products


The presence of technological but also of natural products has increased in the personal care market parallel to a consumer demand for efficacy and purity, respectively. This trend has driven the offer toward either a dermatological approach to the cosmetic treatment or to a holistic and natural one. Although technological and natural products have been growing separately, now it is possible today to develop the purest and most ethical natural ingredient into a product with scientific edge and proven efficacy.

Having in fact more technology and science available for both developing the natural ingredient further and for testing it, it is possible to build up technology and efficacy from natural ingredients, increasing their safety and maintaining their positive image of purity, eco-friendly and sustainability. A new category of ingredients and products embracing both nature and science, and engaging in marketing the quality of the supply chain, is growing. Examples of ingredients such as exotic oils, marine derived algae, rare plant extracts with a scientific edge will be discussed.
