Solvay at in-cosmetics 2023: "Taking care of people, taking care of the planet

From groundbreaking new launches to the latest advances in hair care and skin health, meet Solvay at in-cosmetics to discover how to embrace sustainability without compromising performance.
Solvay, a leader in naturally derived ingredients for beauty care formulations, has announced a full range of functional and sustainable ingredients that will be highlighted at the upcoming in-cosmetics Global 2023 trade show in Barcelona from March 28 to 30. Targeting beauty care creators from around the world, Solvay will showcase a broad portfolio of innovative ingredients and formulations for hair and skin care at booth V10. In addition, Solvay's beauty experts will present its latest wellness cleaning solutions in a technical seminar and hold a conference on fermentation as a technology for a sustainable future.

As an industry leader in natural and naturally derived polymers and specialty surfactants, we support our customers in the beauty care industry with scientific, formulation and application expertisesays Jean-Guy Le Helloco, global vice president, Home & Personal Care, at Solvay. " Our portfolio helps formulators create multi-sensory, multi-functional products designed to enhance consumer experience, wellness and health, while having the smallest environmental footprint.

The main trend driving the beauty industry is sustainability, which Solvay is addressing with a wide range of biodegradable, biosourced, ethically sourced and renewable ingredients and formulation solutions with a low carbon footprint, as underlined by its commitment to beauty for the planet.

In hair care, the company's portfolio aligns with current lifestyles and community needs, such as textured hair, extending hair health to scalp care and "skinifying" hair care with skin care-inspired ingredients. On the other hand, Solvay's innovative skin health and cleansing solutions address functional health and mental and emotional well-being, while responding to the trend of solid formats to minimize waste and the overall product footprint with "bring your own" (ByO) water-based cleanser concepts.

The company's exhibit at in-cosmetics 2023 will be led by the recent launch of Polycare Heat Therapy, a new naturally derived active ingredient that protects hair from thermal damage caused by high-temperature appliances such as straightening or curling irons and hair dryers . This new product complements Solvay's existing performance ingredients for hair health, including Polycare Split Therapy for the repair of long, damaged hair, and Polycare Frizz Therapy for the discipline and long-lasting shape of straight and curly hair.

The Solvay stand will also focus on gentle and environmentally friendly cleansing solutions, from ultra-low salt surfactants for sensitive skin to taurates and sulfosuccinates for sulfate-free formulations, as well as our new biobased and biodegradable glycolipid biosurfactants Mirasoft SL 100 %, manufactured through a cost-effective fermentation process. This line includes Mirasoft SL A60 and Mirasoft SL L60, recently certified as "microbiome friendly" by MyMicrobiome. This certification has also been granted to Dermalcare Lia MB, a circular, siliconized alternative.

Meet Solvay's beauty care team at booth V10 during in-cosmetics 2023 to discuss the benefits these and other innovative ingredients can bring to your formulations, and don't miss the company's live lectures at the show:

On March 28 in Theater 3 from 10:35 to 11:05, Caroline Mabille, Global Marketing Manager for Beauty Cleansing Solutions, will hold a seminar on "Cleansing solutions that promote the well-being of consumers and the environment",
