— Environmentally friendly and economic production methods established

Symrise will be presenting new cosmetic ingredients at stand E110 at the international cosmetics trade fair in-cosmetics and is emphasizing its sustainable approach. The Cosmetic Ingredients team will focus on the presentation of SymReboot ™ L19, SymLite® G8, three oils from the African continent and SymHair® Shape & Color. The trade fair takes place this year from April 2 to 4 in Paris.

„Today, many consumers pay attention to choose cosmetics that are produced in an environmentally and resource friendly way. Therefore, these properties are an important principle for our product development “, says Dr Daniel Ibarra, Vice President EAME at Symrise. „We have been following this sustainable path for many years and can therefore supply suitable cosmetic ingredients.“

With processed probiotics and for organic cosmetics

With SymReboot™ L19, Symrise presents a probiotics-based cosmetic ingredient, opening new perspectives for the care of sensitive skin. For the first time, it has been possible to preserve the bacterial structure and thus an important mechanism of action of a probiotic bacterium. It takes full effect also in creams and lotions that contain preservatives. The skin cells recognize the structure cell-wall or metabolites of the mildly heat-treated microorganisms, thus activating the skin’s natural protective defense mechanisms and thereby soothing the skin and strengthening the skin barrier.

Made from sustainably sourced raw materials, SymLite® G8 naturally enhances the skin caring effect of cosmetic products while improving their shelf life. It naturally supports the product protection system, strengthens the skin barrier and, as a co-emulsifier, helps to stabilize oil-in-water emulsions. Thanks to its sustainable production, SymLite® G8 is COSMOS approved for the use in natural cosmetics and makes it easier for manufacturers of natural cosmetics to improve the shelf life of their products. SymLite® G8 also offers producers of conventional cosmetics the opportunity to increase the proportion of sustainable ingredients in their products.

African Oils and Hair Care ingredients

For the first time, Symrise presents its „African Oil Collection“: Organic Baobab-oil from Tanzania, COSMOS-certified Moringa-oil from Kenia und Organic Tamanu-oil from Madagascar. Symrise pays special attention to sourcing and to use environmentally friendly processes in the sustainable production of the oils. This contributes to the preservation of biodiversity and improves the social and economic conditions of the local people. The oils are suitable for skin and hair care products; they moisturize and have a calming and strengthening effects at the same time.

With SymHair® Shape & Color, Symrise presents a hair care ingredient based on selected plant oils, additional natural ingredients and emollients. It is able to tame volume and frizz, gives a memory effect to curls even in high humidity and protects colored hair from fading. SymHair® Shape & Color also strengthens the hair and decreases hair breakage.

„Environmental aspects and economic thinking are inextricably linked at Symrise.
