Clariant has taken the wraps off skin and hair care formulation concepts based on Thai beauty at this week’s in-cosmetics Asia trade show in Bangkok.
Among them are Hair Cleansing Oil and Conditioner - a luxury care hair oil cleanser featuring its natural Plantasens Abyssinian Oil ingredient.
Also on show is a spa bubbly jelly cleanser, designed to bring a Thai spa experience to home, which includes the fragrance of its Beraca Gold Clay and Plantasens Berto Papaya Extract ingredients.
In addition, there is a ‘silk cocoon’ facial cleanser thin as a piece of paper that melts in contact with water.
Another example is Retinol Glow Serum, which is made by an advanced formulation technique featuring many of Clariant’s own ingredients.
“The most fascinating aspect of the beauty product scene in Thailand is probably the wide range of available products,” said APAC personal care head Vipul Bhatt.
“The way in which a traditional product may be transformed into a brand new idea in terms of texture and shape made possible by the use of innovative ingredients explains how this market is ready to embrace scientific innovation for skincare products and that’s where Clariant’s ingredients take the stage to show their unique features,” he added.
Clariant is also featuring some of its new ingredients at in-cosmetics Asia’s Innovation Zone, including the rheology modifier Aristoflex Eco T – a next-generation patented technology that combines the performance of synthetic polymers with the environmental profile of biopolymers.
Another product introduced at the Innovation Zone is the newly-launched Rootness Mood+ advanced skincare active ingredient, which mimics the recognized benefits of natural light to reactivate the skin’s natural radiance by triggering photoreceptors on it.
