Rethinking oxidation protection in cosmetics

Adapted to the needs of the formulator, armed with new technical capabilities, and with consumer demands in mind, Evonik has developed a unique method for testing oxidation stability. The method measures the oxygen consumption of the formulation without destroying it and captures the entire oxidation process under standardized, real product conditions

ABSTRACT

With the increasing use of unsaturated natural oils and the simultaneous replacement of antioxidant systems with more sustainable alternatives, efficient oxidation protection becomes highly essential to maintain shelf life and product integrity. However, selecting the right antioxidants at the right concentrations is time-consuming and largely dependent on application experience and guesswork. Adapted to the needs of the formulator, armed with new technical capabilities, and with consumer demands in mind, Evonik has developed a unique method for testing oxidation stability. The method measures the oxygen consumption of the formulation without destroying it and captures the entire oxidation process under standardized, real product conditions. Discovering consumer-accepted solutions for oxidation protection and verifying the efficacy of antioxidants in cosmetic formulations are the tools of choice to provide optimal, in depth support to the formulator.

 Antioxidants for skin protection have become one of the most sought-after cosmetic ingredients. A plethora of studies highlight their benefits in personal care products, and consequently consumers are surrounded by advertising claims about the skin renewing and rejuvenating properties of skin active antioxidants.1,2
