Title: Naturally Looking Good
Speaker: Isabelle Minoggio
Company: Clariant
Living in a world of increasing visualization and youth, being and appearing healthy is of high importance. A healthy and vital skin and hair can be defined by their appearance:
• a uniform tone, a good radiance and a firm and supple texture, for the skin
• a moisturized scalp, a shiny effect and a smooth texture, for the hair

In order to maintain these characteristics, cosmetic ingredients have to act at several levels by respecting the nature of skin and hair.
CRM International, a new member of the Clariant group company proposes a wide range of natural ingredients to respond to the specific needs of the skin and hair which address targets: hydration, anti-ageing, protection, radical quenching, self esteem, ... They can be used for all skin and hair types and for all application: skin care, hair care, make up, foaming products.

Title: Formulating for Sulphate Free Shampoos
Speaker: David Popplewell
Company: Ashland Specialty Ingredients
Improving the performance of sulfate free shampoo/body wash and other surfactant cleansing products is one of the challenges facing the Personal Care formulators. They are now charged with developing products with equivalent performance and sensory characteristics to sulphate based products. The sensory aspects include foaming and consistency (difficult to thicken with traditional thickeners) and in performance some conditioning deficiencies due to coacervate formation are apparent.
To meet today’s challenges, Ashland Specialty Ingredients, through its global applications’ team, has explored its extensive range of Conditioneze and N-Hance conditioning polymers in combination with its range of cellulosic rheology modifiers, Benecel, Klucel, and Natrosol. As a result better coacervate formations as well as improved foam properties were observed for a series of sulfate free surfactant mixtures in combination with Ashland rheology modifiers and conditioning polymers. The presentation will give recommendations how to improve sulfate free shampoo formulations.

Title: Fighting Back Aging Signs
Speaker: Raul Vallecillo
Company: Lipotec
Getting older comes with undesired effects on skin induced by environmental elements (like gravity force) and internal factors as well. Skin needs to be firm and elastic to counteract them, but also amend DNA errors due to extrinsic and intrinsic aging. As genetic integrity is directly linked to cellular longevity and adequate functioning, the mechanisms to remove genetic errors are crucial to maintain a healthy and young look.
A key agent that keeps DNA integrity is the Forkhead box (FOX) transcriptional factor family. Included in the FOXO subclass, FOXO3a regulates the expression of genes involved in cellular protection and longevity, being able to induce programmed cellular death (when severe DNA damage), cell-cycle arrest (to repair smaller errors) and an increase of DNA-repairing genes. Thus, the decrease of FOXO3a activity would result in damage accumulation, which actually happens when aging. JUVEFOXO™ imitates FOXO3a activity by raising the activity of its responsive elements, DNA-repair pathways, environmental protection and rejuvenation, and by decreasing cellular senescence.
Additionally, UPLEVITY™ is designed to counteract skin and sagginess, by enhancing the natural elements that help to maintain collagen levels and elastin fibres correctly assembled, and focal adhesions that facilitate the union between cells and the matrix.

Title: PUROLAN® Glucan – A New Natural Anti-aging Active
Speaker: Dr. Matthias Kunze
Company: Lanxess Distribution
Beta-glucan is a natural active derived from sources such as oats, mushrooms and yeast. Due to its proven moisturising and anti-wrinkling effects, it is used in numerous cosmetic applications. Yeast-derived beta-glucan provides additional benefits for the immune system by activating macrophages and Langerhans cells. This makes it an ideal ingredient for sunscreen applications, reducing damage caused by UV radiation. However, the branched structure of natural yeast-glucan results in poor solubility. Chemical modification can improve solubility but may also change the structure of the molecule, jeopardizing its properties and its status as a natural ingredient. By applying an innovative process, unmodified yeast-glucan is now available as a 5 % aqueous dispersion. As a result, PUROLAN® Glucan can be easily incorporated into formulations whilst retaining the superior properties of yeast-glucan. This performance has been proven in an extensive study. Since no chemical process is required, this is a 100% natural ingredient with NATRUE certification.

Title: Needle-free Cosmetics – Redefining the Theory of Skin Youth
Speaker: Dr. Nicola Garuccio – Global Sales Manager
Company: Induchem AG
The cosmetic alternative to injection filler of collagen and HA.
It is a well known fact that the extracellular matrix is made of key polymers that give skin its unique suppleness, firmness and elasticity. Among these polymers is hyaluronic acid, which is sugar based, and plays the role of the major water reservoir. Recent biotechnology investigations enabled the creation of a third generation hyaluronic acid (called NovHyal® Biotech-G: a molecule inspired from aesthetic medicine) that can reactivate the synthesis of hyaluronic acid deep within the skin, almost as a “needle free” injection of HA.
The other extra cellular matrix polymers are mainly collagens (mainly collagen I and III), which help the skin maintain its structure and elastin, which provides skin its viscoelasticity. When compared to hyaluronic acid, collagens and elastin are quite sophisticated 3D proteins, which are degraded in our body by enzymes (collagenases and peptidases) upon ageing.
Little fundamental research has been conducted on the metabolic flow of energy that is associated with the loss of collagen and elastin in skin.
Induchem’s biotechnology engineers have consequently used a leading edge green chemistry process (biocatalysis) to develop a new derivative of glucose called MG6P. Preactivated and unable to induce glycation reactions, this cellular source of energy has then been combined with human essential amino acids and copper to create Neodermyl®, an active ingredient that induces a fast and significant production of collagen, and elastin, with a clear rearrangement of these polymers in the extracellular matrix, therefore redensifying the skin over time.

Title: Surfactant Systems for Optimized Surface Cleaning
Speaker: Jean-Marc Dumas (AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry)
Company: Biesterfeld Özel Kimyasallar
Many different chemicals find use in the degreasing processes. In recent years, due to cost pressures on manufacturers, there has been a trend to use optimized surfactants to lower the total cost of manufacturing. AkzoNobel offers its customers that produce degreasers to use a single surfactant blend, and offer cost reductions by keeping lower stocks and using uniform quality raw materials.
This presentation will offer a selection method for choosing the most suitable surfactant systems based on parameters such as: presence or mechanical treatment, soil and substrate pairs, concentration, foam or no-foam systems, temperature and time. The examples will be for industrial soils, kitchen soils, vehicle cleaning, acidic-neutral and high-alkaling cleaning.
AkzoNobel offers new products like Berol LS which is a blend of special surfactants and colloidal silaca and Berol SurfBoost Ad 15 that is considered as an anaerobically biodegradable co-surfactant which boost the performance of non-ionics in addition to leading surfactants products such as Berol 226, LFG 61, DGR 81 and EZ-1.

Title: Recent Developments in Household and Personal Care Products Market in the Middle East and Impact on Surfactant Consumption
Speaker: Farrokh B. Malihi
Company: Fargol Group
The market for household and personal care products in the Middle East is relatively large, competitive, and performance-price oriented. The importance of this market is demonstrated by strong business commitment of major multi-national companies and numerous local manufacturers. Recent economic growth, steady population growth, young and educated workforce, and rapid urbanization has resulted in a large and growing market for household and personal care products in the Middle East. Consumers in the Middle East, both urban and rural women, take pride in caring for the family health and hygiene, a clean home, and excellent washing results. Wide distribution of income in the region has resulted in significant differences in the development of detergent and personal care market, consumption profile, and consumer habits and practices.
Linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS) is the most widely used surfactant in formulation of household cleaning products in the Middle East. Demand for LAS in the region is currently estimated at over 500,000 tons per year, which is produced by major petrochemical companies in the Middle East. The dominance of LAS is particularly apparent in laundry detergents, dishwashing liquids, household cleaners, and industrial-institutional products. Favorable cost-performance ratio, ample and stable local supply, and ease of use in spray dried powder detergents are major reasons for LAS consumption as the primary choice for a workhorse surfactant in detergents and cleaning products. In addition to LAS, nonionic surfactants (alcohol ethoxylates, and nonylphenol ethoxylates), alkyl ether sulfates, alkanolamides, certain amphoterics, and soap are produced and used as a primary or co-surfactant in household and personal care products.

Title: The Perfect Viscosity for Your Dishwashing Liquids
Speaker: Dr. Christine Müller
Company: Clariant
Aligned with global green trends such as water saving and reduced pack size consumers are increasingly demanding concentrated products for household. For their formulation and application, the use of rheology modifiers like flammable ethanol is mandatory. TexCare® SRN 170 offers a high-performance and environmentally friendly alternative as a low VOC and solvent-free solution for controlling the viscosity of concentrated dishwashing liquids.
A comparison of TexCare® SRN 170 with ethanol and monopropylene glycol which are used as standard solvents to depress viscosity in dishwashing liquids, indicates TexCare to be at least four times more effective in use. As a consequence, not only the cost-performance ratio is improved but also secondary effects such as improved formulation stability, soil dispersion and pleasant skin feel can be claimed.

Title: Concept for Color Protection & Care
Speaker: Mr. Patrick Winter – Innovation Management, Cosmetic Ingredients
Company: Evonik Industries AG
Color wash fastness and UV-protection of hair with Silicone Quaternium-22 and Polysilicone-19

With our new Silicone Quaternium-22 microemulsion (trade name: ABIL® ME 45), we offer a very easy to use, multi-benefit silicone conditioning agent. The product is PEG- and preservative-free and gives excellent and intensive conditioning, which leads to extraordinary manageability and smoothness of hair, reviving even highly damaged hair. Furthermore, the Silicone Quaternium-22 microemulsion also protects hair from further impairment based on its remarkable heat protection properties and outstanding color wash fastness for dyed hair.
In fact, color protection, which includes both color wash fastness and UV-protection, is a much sought-after claim for premium hair conditioners. It is well known that our Polysilicone-19 (trade name: ABIL® UV Quat 50) which contains UV-absorbing methoxycinnamic acid groups along its cationic siloxane copolymer structure provides remarkable protection of dyed hair against UV-fading and damaging by sunlight. In this study, we will now demonstrate evidence for the excellent color wash fastness protection of the Silicone Quaternium-22 microemulsion as a key additional benefit.
As a result, the combination of Silicone Quaternium-22 microemulsion and Polysilicone-19 gives rise to both comprehensive color protection and premium hair conditioning, affording hair care formulations with both visible and tangible benefits for consumers.

Title: Trimethylsiloxysilicates: Protective Silicone Barrier Films
Speaker: Marc Ladreyt
Company: BRB International BV
At HPCI Middle East & Eurasia, BRB Silicones launches a product range that has an outstretched variety of applications for your Personal Care formulations: trimethylsiloxysilicates.
It creates a protective film upon drying. This excellent wash-off and rub-off resistant water-proofing additive provides a long-lasting effect and a unique smooth non-tacky feel. It will also help holding pigments in place in your formulation.
Where does it originate? BRB’s trimethylsiloxysilicates film forming primarily originates through intermolecular interaction; it will form a lattice structure upon drying and secondary through condensation of OH groups. Because of the relatively low molecular weight and presence of M groups, the product is soluble in silicone solvents and can form a film upon evaporation of the solvent. The non-volatile silicone oil will act as a plasticizer to reduce film hardness/brittleness.
BRB is able to provide trimethylsiloxysilicates in different forms and we are always willing to delve deeper into the development of a custom-made variant. BRB Silicones will present two examples of in-house tested guide formulations: wash-off resistant solare protecting cream and CC cream.
