Urban renewal: new and urgent consumer need
In cities around the world, consumers are worried about the impact urban pollution has on their skin. Next to the short-term effects, it also causes damages in the long term. The increasing awareness of skin-related consequences leaves consumers anxious for a way to protect their skin with anti-pollution skincare.
Skin can be negatively impacted by:
- Environmental pollution, toxic agents and ozone
- Different kinds of radiation (UV, VIS, IR)
- Indoor stressors like air-conditioning
- Infections and allergens
- Climatic conditions
The challenge for cosmetics producers is to offer convincing ways of protecting consumers’ skin against the multiple stresses of urban living. Our 4-pillars approach helps to achieve this by identifying consumers’ core anti-pollution needs and offering a portfolio of ingredients to meet them.
The first task of anti-pollution skincare is to NEUTRALIZE upcoming radicals and particles before they can damage the skin and protect against UV rays. For this purpose, we recommend:
- RonaCare® AP, a novel substance which offers advanced, 24-hour photo-protection against UV radiation and the signs of premature aging
- Our effective and natural antioxidant ingredients Emblica® and RonaCare®. Emblica® is a natural cosmetic raw material derived from the fruits of phyllanthus emblica, and offers protection against photo-damage, without promoting pro-oxidant action. RonaCare® Isoquercetin is an effective bioflavonoid with remarkable antioxidative power found in fruit and vegetables, which helps to keep skin smooth and prevent wrinkles.
- Our range of organic and inorganic UV filters for day-time protection.
Balance and Soothe
At the same time, it is important to BALANCE AND SOOTHE the skin, for example with:
- RonaCare® Luremin®, which harnesses the power of a molecule also found in medicinal rhubarb. This nature-identical ingredient stimulates collagen synthesis and protects the cells, working as a soothing ingredient and promoting smooth, less rought skin.
- RonaCare® Bisabolol - a natural oil -offers another way of soothing irritation and skin reddness.
MOISTURIZE AND STRENGHTEN
To keep skin looking healthy, it is essential TO MOISTURIZE it and STRENGTHEN its barrier function
Protect and Repair
Finally, it is vital to protect the skin barrier and skin cells and repair any early signs of damage with ingredients such as:
- RonaCare® Ectoin - an environmental stress reducer due to a quicker release of heat shock protein expression. Furthermore, it protects skin’s immune system against UV induced damage
- RonaCare® CP-5 - Bionic approach to improve visible signs of aging by triggering cell communication
- Eusolex® UV-Pearls® - Protect against UV rays & reduce chemical load of skin
- RonaFlair® Functional Filler – Influencing haptic properties of cosmetic formulations and furthermore creating hide away options on skin
Multitasking ingredients help to offer consumers holistic and uncomplicated solutions to complex needs, at the same time as keeping the chemical load on the skin as low as possible.
