Inspiration through innovation: report on the new products at CosmeticBusiness 2015
Natural and quasi-natural raw materials, individual freedom of design and unmistakeable brand presentations: some 400 suppliers will present their innovative solutions for future product concepts in the cosmetics industry at the up-coming CosmeticBusiness. Be it raw materials, formulae, manufacturing, packaging or presentation – visitors can expect to see all these new products at the international trade fair of the cosmetics supplying industry on 10 and 11 June 2015 in Halls 2 to 4 in the Munich MOC events centre.
New products in raw materials and manufacturing
Nature is increasingly providing the cosmetics industry and its suppliers with a sustainable source of inspiration. Natural and quasi-natural active ingredients and polymers are also key features of the overall picture presented by the new products to be displayed in Munich.
Bergland Pharma: plant based facial oils for dry and combination skin
Hall 2 / Stand C22
How about using oils for facial care?
This is a question that natural cosmetics manufacturer Bergland Pharma from the Ällgau region in Germany posed themselves and to which they responded with two facial oils specially for dry and combination skin, which will be introduced in Munich. Natural plant oils are similar in their composition to the natural oils in the skin, so that herbal oils do not seal the pores, but rather penetrate the skin well and are assimilated into the upper dermis. The facial oil for dry skin contains moringa oil. It helps strengthen the lipid film on the skin and thus supports the process of moisture retention. For combination skin, passion fruit oil is used to create the optimum treatment for dry, normal and greasy skin areas, thus harmonising the skin and providing it with valuable fatty acids.

CLR Chemical Laboratory Dr. Kurt Richter: skin renewal based on probiotics
Hall 2 / Stand D22
The active ingredient ProRenew Complex CLR™ from the CLR stable is based on probiotic engineering and targets the most important biological function of ageing skin – its ability to renew itself quickly and efficiently. The production of essential proteins and enzymes in the skin is significantly enhanced, its barrier function and cellular cohesion are improved and cell proliferation is accelerated. As a result, ProRenew Complex CLR™ impacts positively on both the speed and the quality of the skin renewal process. A tape-stripping test was, moreover, able to show that the restoration of the barrier function is also accelerated.
Follmann present their first fragrant micro-capsules for cosmetic products
Hall 2 / Stand B13
Fragrance, freshness and care are all key properties in cosmetics. With their “Folco Capsolute”, hi-tech specialists in microcapsule technology, Follmann, will present in Munich their first fragrant microcapsules specially for use with cosmetics. The encapsulation of fragrances and other active ingredients for deodorants, body lotions or shampoos and the possibility of their controlled release allows products to acquire longer-lasting freshness and prolonged care effects. The fragrances or care reagents are released in a controlled way through contact or movement. Follmann's patented technology guarantees that the microcapsules are stable and that the contents cannot leak out prematurely or in unintended ways. At the same time, the stability and wall-density of the capsules can be adapted to individual requirements.

NOVAPROT: emulsifying agents based on natural proteins and rhamnolipids
Hall 4 / Stand B02
At this year's CosmeticBusiness, manufacturers of ecological additives, NOVAPROT, will be presenting their PROGATOR, containing new kinds of emulsifiers based on natural proteins and rhamnolipids, which are particularly suitable for use in natural cosmetics. These emulsifiers for oil-in-water emulsions exhibit strong emulsifying properties and can be used in a wide variety of cosmetic emulsions. Because they use natural raw ingredients they are very kind to the skin.

Sederma: Edelweiss facelifts with MAJESTEM™
Hall 3 / Stand E07
The beauty and elegance of facial contours are lost during the process of ageing as a result of sagging skin on the face and neck.
Studies of the effectiveness of Sederma's newly launched active ingredient Majestem™ have shown visible tautening effects around the neck, cheeks and eyes. By repairing the mitochondrial dynamics and maintaining the extra-cellular matrix, the reagent helps to restore the tension in the skin. This effectively combats oxidative stress, such as can arise from environmental influences.

Technature: hydrogel face masks like a second skin
Hall 3 / Stand A 12
Face masks made with hydrogel, which mould to the contours of the face like a second skin, will be on display at the Technature stand. The French manufacturer's hydrogels are made from the natural polymer carrageenan, which is harvested from the cells of red algae, and sulfated D-galactose. When mixed with water, these basic ingredients create a film-like gel, which the additional active substances spread evenly over the skin tissue. Be it for face masks or eye-contour patches, hydrogel masks mould themselves to the contours of the face. They can be made in individualised shapes and enriched with a wide range of different formulae.

First-time appearances and newly created products for packaging
The exhibitors in the packaging section will be providing plenty of creative solutions at this year's CosmeticBusiness – particularly in the fields of packaging materials and finishing technology. The focus of the new developments is on the scope for individualised design and unique presentations for individual brands.

Coster offers unlimited colour combinations with the 'Capri' two-part spray actuator
Hall 4 / Stand A28
With their new two-part spray actuator system, the Italian manufacturers of packaging components offer their customers unlimited freedom for combining colours. Finger pad, sleeve and overcap can all be manufactured separately in each desired colour. The spray actuator has a spray channel with a separate orifice integrated into the finger pad and is suitable for 1” male valve cups on aluminium aerosol cans. The universal shape of the Capri actuator lends the spray head a unisex quality, so that it can, therefore, be adapted for a great many different products.
DieterBakicEnterprises: COSIMA – elegant contrast for selective cosmetics
Hall 4 / Stand C07
Amongst a raft of other new products, suppliers of integrated packaging solutions, DieterBakicEnterprises, will be introducing their new 'Cosima' range. This new line stands tall and proud with a gentle curvature, which gives it a low centre of gravity and makes it look very stable. Its bold, elegant shape makes it into a timelessly beautiful representative of selective cosmetics. At the same time, the LAJA cap in gun metal creates a really new, striking look that comes from the contrast with the feminine shape of the design. As an additional highlight, the VIOLA pump can be laser-engraved, which thus also offers the possibility of an additional design element and embellishment.

Edelmann presents a folding box with integrated liner
Hall 4 / Stand A10
How to design a brand that cannot be confused with any other – that is the focus of Edelmann's presentation at CosmeticBusiness 2015. Edelmann are suppliers of paper and cardboard packaging solutions and, this year, will be introducing, amongst other things, their new 'Excellence' concept package: a folding box with the liner already integrated into it. The fine corrugated papers in minimal weights that give that special visual appeal to luxury cosmetics are normally made in a very elaborate process. Edelmann make it easy for their customers, by integrating the liner into the packaging and supplying it already fitted. Colouring and printing in accordance with the customer's wishes are both equally possible, as is the inclusion of booklets, sachets and other add-ons.
Eisele Case System present ECOCASE for the first time
Hall 2 / Stand D10
Bavarian case producers Eisele Case System will appear in Munich with their brand new case system, ECOCASE. A company with a long-standing tradition, they have created this new range from renewable raw materials, which are manufactured with a high proportion of natural fibres, thus conserving natural resources. The use of natural fibres makes the case lightweight in itself and yet extremely resilient. A closely fitting inner lining protects the contents from shocks. With impeccable ecological credentials and in a natural wood look, these new case options from the Bavarian manufacturer are to be presented for the first time at CosmeticBusiness. As well as hops, barley and flax, the external shell of the case is made of well-tried hemp fibres. ECOCASE carries eco-certification and emphasises the sustainability credentials of the products that are presented in it.

GRAFE: On-trend, urban tones for the 2016 colour season
Hall 4 / Stand D06
At the stand of Color Batch manufacturers, Grafe, interested trade visitors can get an overview of the 2016 colour trends. Dramatic blues, bright green, reds that range from bright and trendy to glamorous, strong contrasts, as well as metallic shimmer and glitter effects, are what characterise the chic city scene for GRAFE and serve as the company's inspiration for its colour palette for the coming autumn/winter season. The colour palette for the spring/summer season 2016 is both opulent and soft at the same time: delicate and harmonious green, blue, purple and orange take their place alongside oriental and magical tones such as violet and dark blue. The colour palettes presented by GRAFE provide a source of ideas for product development in the coming year.

HEINZ-GLAS enhances glass bottles with natural wood, slate and leather textures
Hall 4 / Stand D18
Inspired by the textures found in natural materials, HEINZ-GLAS has developed cosmetics and perfume bottles with distinctive surface patterns. This company, which specialises in glass manufacture and finishing, will be showcasing its new glass bottles with wood, leather and slate-like surface textures in Munich.
This unusual look arises from the interplay of natural materials, micro-lasering of the surface texture and digital printing technology. This combination produces a colour effect that is very close to the natural grains of wood and leather and the texture of slate.

Iggesund Paperboard: Invercote G with high-quality printable reverse side
Hall 4 / Stand D11
Changing market requirements are the catalyst for constant product improvement. Iggesund Paperboard has responded to the needs of the market and has given its Invercote premium packaging an upgrade. In Munich, the Swedish packaging specialist will present its market leader Invercote G with a lightly coated and whiter reverse side, which now enables high-quality printing on the inside of the packaging, too.

Inotech: Patented 2-component injection-blow technology
Hall 2 / Stand B08
A wide range of functional packaging solutions and a high degree of design freedom are offered by the patented 2-component technology that packaging manufacturer Inotech is exhibiting in Munich. The glass-look packaging material provides high levels of both transparency and shine, thanks to the thickness of the sides. Individual colour combinations or transparent areas, such as viewing windows, can create interesting 3D effects. In addition, the use of different combinations of materials also makes it possible to produce hard/soft combinations such as a soft-touch feel or inner-bag systems. The inner component can also provide protection for the product as an anti-bacterial layer or barrier against UV radiation, oxygen, hydrogen or other harmful influences.

Lifocolor Masterbatches & Compounds: 'Colours of Motion' – colour trends 2015/16
Hall 4 / Stand F01
With its 'Colour Road' trend report, colour-granule manufacturer Lifocolor is presenting the colour and design trends for the coming season at CosmeticBusiness. The 'Colours of Motion' colour palette came about as a result of collaboration with colour designers and international trend institutes: a synaesthetic fusion of movement and colour, which expresses itself in the three trend themes of 'Flying Formations', 'Flowing Formations and 'Swimming Formations'. Inspired by sequences of movement in nature, Lifocolor presents the colour accents of natural flying, flowing and swimming formations, which provide ideas for product design for the 2015/2016 season.

Lumson: GREEN PE – sustainable packaging from sugar-cane ethanol
Hall 4 / Stand E03
Lumson is going down the green route at this year's CosmeticBusiness. The Italian packaging specialist is presenting its new PE packaging, which is manufactured using ethanol, derived from sugar cane. Green PE is – in contrast to ethanol that has been derived from crude oil – manufactured in a more sustainable way and with lower CO2 emissions. For every tonne of Green PE produced, there is a saving of 2.5 tonnes of CO2. Lumsen can produce their entire STD PE plastic bottle collection in the Green PE version. The bottles can subsequently be coloured and finished as usual. The use of Green PE packaging can also make it easier for cosmetics brands to get organic certification for their products.

Toyo & Deutsche Aerosol: innovative two-component aerosol the DUAL
Hall 3 / Stand D14
The joint venture between Toyo & Deutsche Aerosol will be represented at CosmeticBusiness with an innovative aerosol packaging system. The DUAL combines two bags with a single valve and thus makes it possible to store two components separately within one system and then to release both with the push of a single button. Hermetically-sealed aluminium bags prevent the contents from oxidising or becoming contaminated. This DUAL principle, developed on the basis of 'bag-on-valve' technology, is suitable for just about any product. Possible areas of application are hair-colouring or skin-care products made up of two components, which are not intended to come into contact with each other until the button is pushed.
