Sun care was the key theme of this year’s in-cosmetics show in Barcelona, and another company to present its latest offering in this field was ingredients supplier DSM.

Cosmetics Design spoke with Christine Saecker, senior global marketing manager Sun Care at DSM about the new data the company was showcasing at the event.

Saecker explained that companies have to deal with a more detailed approach to sun protection. Rather than just focusing on sunburn as a sign of sun damage, Saecker says that DSM’s new data looks into other areas of sun damage.

This means that the introduction of UV filters into other skin care products, rather than just in sunscreen, is very important to improve daily protection.

Speaking of future developments, Saecker said that consumer needs remain the key focus and this will aid the company’s collaboration with its customers to provide products with better sun protection.
