At in-cosmetics 2014, Symrise is presenting a range of new products at its booth 4B40. They focus on anti-aging solutions and natural ingredients as well as a cooperation for fairly traded Shea butter. This year, the largest trade show for cosmetic ingredients takes place from April 1 to 3, 2014, in Hamburg, Germany.

“Products fighting the premature aging of skin, ingredients from nature and responsibly sourced raw materials are in high demand with customers and consumers,” says Dr. Gabriele Vielhaber, Senior Vice President Life Essentials and Global Head Cosmetic Ingredients at Symrise. “We are doing a lot of research in these areas. At in-cosmetics 2014, we are showcasing a selection of our ingredient solutions for these topics. We will also introduce a novel, UV protection product at the trade show.”

SymVital® AgeRepair

SymVital® AgeRepair is a 100 % pure ginger root extract, which is China compliant. It protects against premature skin aging and restores the skin youthfulness. The natural ingredient improves skin smoothness, complexion regularity and homogeneity of irritated and stressed skin. Working on skin’s protection and vitality maintenance, it also shows anti-oxidative and soothing activity. Thanks to its potent anti inflammaging efficacy, SymVital® AgeRepair has proven to visibly restore a youthful appearance in 21 days and also reduces sun-induced damages in less than two weeks. SymVital® AgeRepair is a universal beautifier for healthy skin and tone perfection.
