“According to WHO 10% decrease in ozone layer could cause additional 300, 00 cases of non melanoma and 4500 cases of melanoma skin cancers. Consumers’ interest in protecting their skin from harmful effects of rays is increasing. The demand for better formulations to combat the effects of UV rays with additional anti aging properties is in focus.

 

About the Event

According to a recent analysis, sun protection accounts for nearly 90% of total sun care, which makes it vital to focus on consumer needs and wants in this category. Sun protection products enjoyed 2.9% retail sales growth over 2016, bringing the category to $8.9bn, thanks to the continued category innovation and emerging markets. The sun care market grew 2.5% in 2016. The burgeoning demand for multifunctional suncare and skincare products is augmenting the growth of the global Suncare market, and the global sun care market is expected to showcase a scorching growth of US$11.1 by 2020.

The European sun care market is fraught with challenges, such as cosmetic formulators balance the difficulty of developing high performance sunscreen formulations for a cost-conscious consumer base, while at the same time using raw materials whose prices are some of the most expensive in the world due to high import taxes. To develop unique products with high SPF and PFA protection, European formulators have been tasked with discovering synergistic pairings between ingredients in order to minimise UV filters’ concentration, thereby reducing overall formulation costs. At the same time, these companies must bear in mind consumer demands for increased sunscreen sensoriality, including products with lighter touch, greater spreadability and less tack.

KEEPING UP WITH THE INDUSTRY’S VIEWS

New Approach: Introduction to a new Compound Providing Unrivalled UV Protection

Posted on: 28 February 2017

Studies have showed a sustained 10% global loss of ozone may lead to a 26% increase in the occurrence of skin cancers among fair skinned people.

According to a latest research, the global after-sunburn products market is expected to grow at a steady rate over the next five years, driven by the growing ill-effects of global warming, ozone depletion, and exposure to UV radiation on skin. The US and Europe have been driving the growth of the global after sunburn care products market. In 2021, this segment is expected to generate the highest revenue among all the product segments of the global after sunburn care products market and account for a share of over 51% of the market. The global after-sunburn gels market currently accounts for the second-largest share of the global after sunburn care products market and is expected to hold a share of about 35% of the market in 2021.Source

Environmental Protection Agency estimates that a 2% increase in UV-B radiation would result in a 2 to 6% increase in non-melanoma skin cancer. Increase in UV radiation relative to levels are estimated to be as much as 7% at Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes during the winter and spring, 4% at Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes in summer and autumn, and 6% at Southern Hemisphere mid-latitudes on a year-round basis. Australia, with high sunshine levels, has very high skin cancer rates. An estimated 2 out of every 3 people in most parts of the country will develop some form of skin cancer. In Queensland, where UV-B radiation is the highest, the probability jumps to 3 in every 4.

As people are spending more time in the Sun and are exposing more of their skin in the process. The incidence of malignant melanoma has been increasing among light-skinned populations around the world. In consonance with this, Lecturer at University of Reading, at Sun Protection Summit, scheduled on 28-29 April, 2017 in Brussels, Belgium, will give an overview on the current science basis behind ozone depletion and recovery as well as air pollution and how climate change will affect UV and pollutant exposure in the future, which will help motivate further research on preventing the impacts of these environmental changes.

Innovation in Sun Care: Cyanobacteria an Alternative to Synthetic Formulas

Posted on: 2 February 2017

According to a recent research, cyanobacteria could prove to be a safer alternative to prevailing, synthetic UV filters. These compounds contain mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs) and scytonemin, which provide strong screening protection from longwave and shortwave UV radiation respectively.

With scorching temperature and the steady ozone depletion caused by greenhouse gasses, people are advised to use sun protection. However, most sun protection products are found to be synthesized. At present, scientists are developing sunscreen and skin moisturizers from cyanobacteria—blue-green algae with species, that can live in vastly arid regions. They yield compounds that have the capability to fight against highly destructive UV radiation.Source

As we step into an era where we are embracing organic compounds to replace synthetic chemicals, the industry is being driven to look for natural product alternative. Basic & Applied Research Director, Coty at the Sun Protection summit, scheduled on 28-29 April 2017 in Brussels, Belgium will shed light on combining beauty and technology, discussion on the future prospects of latest technologies entering in beauty industry, the importance of developing innovative solutions for increasing the use of suncare products, alleviating the seasonality associated with it and thereby expanding the market and offering
new opportunities.

Driving growth factors of Skin Care Industry

 

Awareness towards sun protection continues in driving growth. According to a report, the value of skin care industry has increased by 2% in the year 2015. With emerging economies and rise in disposable income & growing product penetration, the demand for skin care products has expanded.

Globally, the consumers are becoming cautious about the negative effects of  UV rays which lead to unhealthy skin. As the summers approach the demand for sunscreen begins to increase, Also with the demand of safety towards skin against the sun and maintaining the moisture level the line between the skincare and sun protection products are blurring. Europe being the largest market for sun care products The global sun care product market is expected to reach US $ 11.1 billion by 2020

Consumers being informed of  natural ingredients and their inclination towards them have also lead to opportunities as well as challenges for the industry, where one side there has been  a growth of industries dealing with organic ingredients on the other hand ban on essential preservatives like Methylisothiazolinone by EU has become a major challenge for sun care industry. Sunscreen has moved beyond its function of providing a shield from UV rays. It is playing a multifunctional role of not just protecting from sun rays  but also includes factor like PPF, combating ageing effects and maintaining skin moisture level.

The development in this field is occurring tremendously at a high level.

Global education on the UV filters have resulted in many consumers to adopt daily skin care regime. The attractive benefits of healthy formulation and appealing packaging have become powerful purchasing factors.

Now and then, New developments and approaches are creating more space for knowledge to share, discuss and implement. To witness all these challenges and opportunities in one roof come  join us in our Conference, which  will provide an insight knowledge on various innovations occurring in sun care industry with challenges and opportunities along with future perspective of sun care Industry

Preservative Crisis in Skin Care Industry

 

Cosmetic products become easily contaminated after a period of time due to bacteria and fungi. To extend the shelf life of these products cosmetic industries have been using preservatives, they not only help in creating long shelf life of the product but also secure skin from irritation or infection caused by bacteria. The  chances of degradation of cosmetic products increases with the presence of oxygen.

All the cosmetics products whether skin care or colour cosmetic contains preservative. Organic cosmetics also have one or more preservative otherwise, there are high chances of it getting spoiled. Preservatives have been securing products from spoilage caused by microbial growth or chemical changes in the products.

The European Union has banned around 1300 chemicals including preservatives that are controversial or proven to have a negative effect. The increase in number of ban including, many parabens have concerned the industrial experts, as banning would lead to a shortage of preservatives and could increase the risk of allergies and sensitization in skin.

The falling number of preservatives is a major challenge for Industry.Lotions, Sunscreen, Scrubs are the major product that uses preservatives. The growing awareness towards sun protection and increasing demand for these products,have led to more production but banning essential preservatives is a concern, which is ultimately creating a void for the cosmetic industry. According to a report, the cosmetic preservative industry will be worth 348.3 million USD by 2020, but such bans is a major hindrance for the industry.

With recent ban on Methylisothiazolinone preservative is one of them, which is been recently banned  by EU. The limitations in use of chemicals are forcing industry to search alternative of these chemicals.

There is an urgent need for alternate solutions and developments for preservatives by industry rather than continuous banning.

KEEPING UP WITH THE INDUSTRY’S VIEWS

New Approach: Introduction to a new Compound Providing Unrivalled UV Protection

Posted on: 28 February 2017

Studies have showed a sustained 10% global loss of ozone may lead to a 26% increase in the occurrence of skin cancers among fair skinned people.

According to a latest research, the global after-sunburn products market is expected to grow at a steady rate over the next five years, driven by the growing ill-effects of global warming, ozone depletion, and exposure to UV radiation on skin. The US and Europe have been driving the growth of the global after sunburn care products market. In 2021, this segment is expected to generate the highest revenue among all the product segments of the global after sunburn care products market and account for a share of over 51% of the market. The global after-sunburn gels market currently accounts for the second-largest share of the global after sunburn care products market and is expected to hold a share of about 35% of the market in 2021.Source

Environmental Protection Agency estimates that a 2% increase in UV-B radiation would result in a 2 to 6% increase in non-melanoma skin cancer. Increase in UV radiation relative to levels are estimated to be as much as 7% at Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes during the winter and spring, 4% at Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes in summer and autumn, and 6% at Southern Hemisphere mid-latitudes on a year-round basis. Australia, with high sunshine levels, has very high skin cancer rates. An estimated 2 out of every 3 people in most parts of the country will develop some form of skin cancer. In Queensland, where UV-B radiation is the highest, the probability jumps to 3 in every 4.

As people are spending more time in the Sun and are exposing more of their skin in the process. The incidence of malignant melanoma has been increasing among light-skinned populations around the world. In consonance with this, Lecturer at University of Reading, at Sun Protection Summit, scheduled on 28-29 April, 2017 in Brussels, Belgium, will give an overview on the current science basis behind ozone depletion and recovery as well as air pollution and how climate change will affect UV and pollutant exposure in the future, which will help motivate further research on preventing the impacts of these environmental changes.

Innovation in Sun Care: Cyanobacteria an Alternative to Synthetic Formulas

Posted on: 2 February 2017

According to a recent research, cyanobacteria could prove to be a safer alternative to prevailing, synthetic UV filters. These compounds contain mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs) and scytonemin, which provide strong screening protection from longwave and shortwave UV radiation respectively.

With scorching temperature and the steady ozone depletion caused by greenhouse gasses, people are advised to use sun protection. However, most sun protection products are found to be synthesized. At present, scientists are developing sunscreen and skin moisturizers from cyanobacteria—blue-green algae with species, that can live in vastly arid regions. They yield compounds that have the capability to fight against highly destructive UV radiation.Source

As we step into an era where we are embracing organic compounds to replace synthetic chemicals, the industry is being driven to look for natural product alternative. Basic & Applied Research Director, Coty at the Sun Protection summit, scheduled on 28-29 April 2017 in Brussels, Belgium will shed light on combining beauty and technology, discussion on the future prospects of latest technologies entering in beauty industry, the importance of developing innovative solutions for increasing the use of suncare products, alleviating the seasonality associated with it and thereby expanding the market and offering
new opportunities.

Driving growth factors of Skin Care Industry

 

Awareness towards sun protection continues in driving growth. According to a report, the value of skin care industry has increased by 2% in the year 2015. With emerging economies and rise in disposable income & growing product penetration, the demand for skin care products has expanded.

Globally, the consumers are becoming cautious about the negative effects of  UV rays which lead to unhealthy skin. As the summers approach the demand for sunscreen begins to increase, Also with the demand of safety towards skin against the sun and maintaining the moisture level the line between the skincare and sun protection products are blurring. Europe being the largest market for sun care products The global sun care product market is expected to reach US $ 11.1 billion by 2020

Consumers being informed of  natural ingredients and their inclination towards them have also lead to opportunities as well as challenges for the industry, where one side there has been  a growth of industries dealing with organic ingredients on the other hand ban on essential preservatives like Methylisothiazolinone by EU has become a major challenge for sun care industry. Sunscreen has moved beyond its function of providing a shield from UV rays. It is playing a multifunctional role of not just protecting from sun rays  but also includes factor like PPF, combating ageing effects and maintaining skin moisture level.

The development in this field is occurring tremendously at a high level.

Global education on the UV filters have resulted in many consumers to adopt daily skin care regime. The attractive benefits of healthy formulation and appealing packaging have become powerful purchasing factors.

Now and then, New developments and approaches are creating more space for knowledge to share, discuss and implement. To witness all these challenges and opportunities in one roof come  join us in our Conference, which  will provide an insight knowledge on various innovations occurring in sun care industry with challenges and opportunities along with future perspective of sun care Industry

Preservative Crisis in Skin Care Industry

 

Cosmetic products become easily contaminated after a period of time due to bacteria and fungi. To extend the shelf life of these products cosmetic industries have been using preservatives, they not only help in creating long shelf life of the product but also secure skin from irritation or infection caused by bacteria. The  chances of degradation of cosmetic products increases with the presence of oxygen.

All the cosmetics products whether skin care or colour cosmetic contains preservative. Organic cosmetics also have one or more preservative otherwise, there are high chances of it getting spoiled. Preservatives have been securing products from spoilage caused by microbial growth or chemical changes in the products.

The European Union has banned around 1300 chemicals including preservatives that are controversial or proven to have a negative effect. The increase in number of ban including, many parabens have concerned the industrial experts, as banning would lead to a shortage of preservatives and could increase the risk of allergies and sensitization in skin.

The falling number of preservatives is a major challenge for Industry.Lotions, Sunscreen, Scrubs are the major product that uses preservatives. The growing awareness towards sun protection and increasing demand for these products,have led to more production but banning essential preservatives is a concern, which is ultimately creating a void for the cosmetic industry. According to a report, the cosmetic preservative industry will be worth 348.3 million USD by 2020, but such bans is a major hindrance for the industry.

With recent ban on Methylisothiazolinone preservative is one of them, which is been recently banned  by EU. The limitations in use of chemicals are forcing industry to search alternative of these chemicals.

There is an urgent need for alternate solutions and developments for preservatives by industry rather than continuous banning.
