Anti-acne kit to aid formulators

A new anti-acne formulation kit from Ashland is available to help formulators of cosmetic and over-the-counter (OTC) products develop answers to on-going market needs.

Built upon Ashland’s portfolio of specialised ingredients supported by application, measurement and consumer science, the kit includes six new formulations that have been designed to address formulation challenges associated with active delivery, formulation stability and formulation mildness, while also providing elegant sensory benefits

In the kit, Ashland showcases solutions in multiple product forms that illustrate how Ashland’s products can be used to benefit acne care formulations across three main stages of application: 

  • Pre-treatment– A toner and cream from Ashland’s Balance & Clear concept can support a healthy physical and biochemical skin barrier, prevent pores from clogging, enable mild exfoliation and soothing effects to help address acne before it occurs
  • Treatment – A clarifying cleanser is designed to help to clear clogged pores with efficient deposition and controlled release of salicylic acid, while concepts for a spot cream and anti-acne gel can reduce tack and offer a soft and cushiony finish
  •  Post-treatment– A Blemish Soothing moisturiser to help soothe skin and limit the appearance of post-acne marks.

Each of the formulations utilises a combination of Ashland’s ingredients that were each carefully selected due to its application and performance benefits. These ingredients include:  FlexiThix and Stabileze QM polymers to help deliver acne actives, ProLipid lamellar gel and Lubrajel hydrogel for moisturisation and formulation texture, Vital ET biofunctional to help manage inflammation in vitro and acne-redness, and Elixiance biofunctional for skin purifying benefits.
