Focus on green actives

Download PDF version of article

The growing array of green actives is spurring innovation in the cosmetics industry. Organic Monitor believes that novel green ingredients are also bringing fresh technical challenges.

Plant materials were the traditional source of green actives. As will be shown at upcoming Organic Monitor events, novel actives are now finding their way from food ingredients, marine sources, as well as via new sustainable extraction and processing methods. These novel actives are creating new mechanisms for antiageing, anti-inflammation, sebum control, skin moisturisation and related applications. Hair care uses of green actives include hair growth promotion, loss prevention and anti-dandruff.

New sustainable extraction and processing methods are providing fertile ground for new green actives. For instance, plant stem cell technology is enabling IRB Tech (Croda) and Mibelle Biochemistry to develop novel actives from rare and endangered plant species.

The growing use of green actives in cosmetic formulations will be featured in upcoming Organic Monitor events. Natural Cosmetics Masterclass (25 June, Paris) will have dedicated workshops on green actives. Practical guidance will be given to formulators and product developers looking at using novel green actives.
