Today, we are seeing beauty brands meet consumer demand for sustainability and for more concentrated and effective products by reducing the water content of their products.
On this episode of the Beauty Broadcast, we sat down with, Marty Lumain, APAC beauty care marketing manager of specialty chemical company Seppic, to discuss the environmental impact of water-usage in cosmetics.
At in-cosmetics Asia 2019, the firm bagged a silver award in the functional category for its algae water range, which consists of two ingredients, Hydralixir LD and Hydralixir CC. Hydralixir can replace up to 50% of water in a formulation.
Lumain also explains how cosmetic companies are adapting to this trend with alternative ingredients and new product formats.
Later, Chey Birch of Australian beauty brand Black Chicken Remedies explains why the company chose to axe water out of its ingredient list completely and elaborates on how going waterless can benefit the consumers.
