Munich, Germany - September 18th, 2018 - BASF, the renowned chemical company, is set to showcase its latest scientific findings at the prestigious International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC) Congress in Munich. With experts from various fields, BASF aims to shed light on key topics such as anti-pollution, UV protection, and innovative plant extracts. Join them from September 18 to 21 to learn about their groundbreaking research and advancements in the cosmetic industry.

The Battle Against Pollution

Particulate matter in the air poses a significant threat to both health and beauty. BASF has conducted systematic studies to understand the effects of formulation ingredients on particulate matter adhesion and removal from the skin. The findings have led to the development of new formulations that offer remarkable anti-adhesion and removability effects, effectively safeguarding the skin against damage caused by pollution.

Confronting Sebum Oxidation

Sebum oxidation, a contributing factor to acne development, has become a growing concern among consumers. BASF experts have undertaken extensive research on synthetic sebum oxidation under simulated conditions of average city pollution using various test methods. Their findings provide valuable evidence and insights for the exploration of anti-pollution ingredients for the skin and scalp.

Innovations in Sunscreen Technology

As the largest supplier of safe and high-performance UV filters, BASF is committed to protecting the skin against the harmful effects of UV radiation. They will be sharing their latest insights on molecular aggregates in sunscreens and the use of confocal Raman microspectroscopy to detect spatial UV filter distribution. These advancements contribute to the development of cutting-edge sunscreen formulations that offer superior protection against sunburn, premature wrinkles, and even skin cancer.

Revolutionizing Oily Skin Treatment

Oily skin is a global concern, leading to shine, enlarged pores, and imperfections. BASF experts have successfully selected a plant extract that reduces sebum production in hyperactive sebaceous glands, using a state-of-the-art 3D model developed by BASF. This innovative approach presents a promising solution for addressing oily skin issues caused by both genetic factors and modern lifestyles.

Advancing Test Strategies

Epicutaneous patch testing is a commonly used screening method for evaluating the compatibility of cosmetic formulations with the skin. BASF, in collaboration with the DGK work group on skin compatibility, has conducted a study that highlights the need for simple modifications in existing test protocols. These modifications provide essential insights into immediate type skin reactions, allowing for the optimization of test strategies in cosmetic formulation development.

Don't miss the opportunity to engage with BASF's leading scientists, who will be presenting their findings in speaking sessions, poster presentations, and booth E35. Immerse yourself in the captivating world of cosmetic science and discover the latest trends and innovations. Your journey to a sustainable and beautiful future begins at the IFSCC Congress 2018.
