We’ve got the insider news from beauty companies about what’s launching next. Here’s a round-up of the NPD we can’t wait to see hit the market.

Beauty Pie’s skin and colour hybrid

There’s always innovation happening at Beauty Pie. Within the last month it’s launched Shinkai: a Japanese-inspired electrolyte skin 3-in-1 gel cream, and a new fragrance Le Smash Santal – a blend of Almond powder, Tonka Bean and Lavender field on a creamy sandalwood base.

But there is also a new skin tint launch on the horizon that’s “inspired by the Skinification trend and hybrid formats,” ​said Saskia Lankshear, VP of NPD at BeautyPie.

“Expectations are far higher from makeup items nowadays in terms of optics but also active ingredients, so we worked with one of our favourite Japanese skincare labs to make an active-based makeup/skincare hybrid,” ​she shared.

Talm’s facial skin care launch

French prestige maternity skin care brand Talm recently closed its first round of funding (with the owners of Caudelie). Founder Kenza Keller has revealed her expansion hopes, as well as shedding light about the challenges of formulating for this consumer group.

The brand currently has a range of four vegan, organic, natural and Ecocert Greenlife-accredited body care products that were specially created to support women before and after childbirth.

Next on Keller’s agenda is the launch of a full facial skincare range especially designed for future and current mamas. 

“It’s a range of organic products to address specific needs such as tiredness, skin hydration and suppleness,” ​she shared.

“I’ve been working on it for two and a half years.” 


Kaffe Bueno’s new sun care star

The company that upcycles coffee waste into beauty and personal care ingredients is launching a new coated mineral UV filter that offers broad UV spectrum protection and can partially or fully replace chemical UV filters.

The ingredient (which can’t yet be named) has a coffee-derived phenolic coating, which helps reduce the number of UV filters needed and eliminates the white cast effect and photocatalytic activity of the mineral filters. This makes it ideal for use in sunscreens and bronzers.

The company said it has over 15 new ingredients in the pipeline, so it has been busy testing the toxicology and efficacy of these, too.

“We have gotten approval for a new INCI,” ​shared co-founder Alejandro Franco.

“We can’t say much more, other than there will no longer be excuses to not use a bio-based surfactant in your formulations​.”

SHISEIDO’s serum-foundation fusion

In September, SHISEIDO is set to launch a new foundation made with fermented kefir extract, Revitalessense Skin Glow Foundation.

The brand described the product as a formulation that “fuses serum and foundation”.

It’s made with a combination of niacinamide and fermented kefir extract, which the company claims will support the moisture barrier function of the skin.

According to the brand, the makeup ingredients are microencapsulated and contained in the essence.

“Each time you use it, it supports the skin's moisture barrier function, leading to plump, bouncy firmness and lustrous skin full of vitality,” ​said the brand.

Robertet’s new ActiScents innovations

Robertet’s current ActiScents ingredients collection already includes options like Skin defense with Gentiana lutea​, which can help prevent premature skin damage by preventing blue light damage from screen use, as well as Beauty ritual with Pelargonium graveolens​, which can slow unwanted hair growth activity.

According to Anthony Pegard, Fragrance Innovation Manager at Robertet, the majority of Robertet customers “that have tried ActiScents for one of their ranges are asking for active fragrances when launching a new brief​.”

The fragrance house’s R&D team is now working on adding exciting new ingredients to the ActiScents collection, which are set to launch in the coming months.
