Evonik Launches Low-Viscous Formulations Concept – Complex Sensations, Easy Formulating

 • Evonik unveils latest low-viscous formulation concept at PCHi 2015
• A sample kit with 6 low-viscous formulations is developed to meet Asian consumers’ preference on light skin feel

Around two thirds of Asian territory is of either tropic or subtropical zone, thus fresh and light skin feel is preferred. Non-oily and non-tackiness sensory is popular while still keeping skin hydrated and well-cared.

In answer to Asian consumers’ preference on “Light” skin feel, Evonik Industries launches the latest concept on low-viscous formulations which combines our deep formulation know-how and scientific excellence. The concept is supported by a sample kit with various low viscosity formulations of market relevant textures like serum, toner, light emulsion, spray, mask to provide solutions for sensorial consumer demands.

The formulations are easy to apply on the skin which offer the desired skin feel. Take “All Day Hydration Skin Relief Rich Toner” for example, the Rich Toner made with ABIL® Care XL 80, a silicone based emulsifier provides very nice silky and velvety skin feel. When applying the product, it will be quickly and well absorbed by the skin. It is enriched with HyaCare®, a skin-identical anti-aging moisturizer and LACTIL®, an ideal substitute for reduced natural moisturizing factors in the skin.

The other formulations include “Energizing Light Serum”, “Daily Protection Sun Care Spray SPF 30, PA+++”, “Smoothing Air Cushion Foundation”, “Silky Smooth and Even Brilliant Mask” and “Intensive Hydrating and Refining Mask”.

The concept will be unveiled in PCHi 2015 during March 12-14, 2015 in Guangzhou, China. Please feel free to visit our booth 3C02 to exchange with us on this concept and to experience the samples on-site.
