BASF Care Creations presents ‘Inspired by Life’ at the 2015 NYSCC Suppliers Day Show

  • Exhibit will launch seven new personal care ingredients

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., May 7, 2015

BASF will present its diverse range of personal care and cosmetic ingredients at the 2015 New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) Suppliers’ Day on May 12-13 at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition center in Edison, New Jersey. Visitors to booth #431 will experience the Care Creations theme of ‘Inspired by Life’ and be introduced to seven new personal care ingredients.

“BASF is celebrating its 150th year of creating chemistry that enhances the quality of life around the globe,” said Katherine Burnett, Head of Marketing, Personal Care North America. “Our goal at NYSCC is to showcase our new products inspired by the lives of consumers and the needs of our customers.”

BASF Care Creations™ will feature the ‘Inspired by Life’ theme and The Future of Beauty: Trends 2017 program with new formulations and seven new personal care ingredients:

Emulgade® Sucro Plus – BASF's completely natural-based emulsifier that has been approved by COSMOS, ECOCERT and NPA. In addition to good emulsifying properties and a high electrolyte tolerance, the product demonstrates distinct sensory benefits and performance in finished formulations.

Collrepair™ DG – a new active ingredient that for the first time in cosmetics is able to reverse the consequences of glycation. This synergistic complex breaks advanced glycation end products (AGEs), to help skin fibers gain back their flexibility and functionality.

Dermawhite™ WF – caters to the desire for a brighter complexion: In vitro, the active ingredient inhibits the melanin synthesis by 90 percent. Thus, it has an effect three times higher than that of kojic acid, a commonly used active ingredient on the topical skin brightening market.

Chione™ Celestial Gold – a new generation of gold synthetic mica. Chione™ Celestial Gold is a pure white gold shade for a shimmering glow and shine in various cosmetics – from lip gloss to body serum.

Reflecks™ MultiDimensions – a new line of color travel pigments that give cosmetics a vibrancy by changing color with the movement of the wearer. Three pigments in this line will be introduced at the show:

  • Reflecks™ MultiDimensions Glistening Gold G280D, an interference effect pigment on a borosilicate substrate that travels from a yellow hue to a flash of green.
  • Reflecks™ MultiDimensions Swirling Sweetberry G490D, a metallic pigment that travels from a flash of metallic russet, to a brilliant bronze with the base color a strong russet hue.
  • Reflecks™ MultiDimensions Twisted Terracotta G390D, a metallic pigment that travels from a flash of metallic copper, to a brilliant bronze with the base color an intense copper hue.
