The hot skincare ingredients in 2019
1. Skincare Series
With the explosive growth of masks for several years, the use of hyaluronic acid is becoming more and more popular, and now it is developing towards bigger molecular weight, better absorption and diversified functions.
For example, one of the main ingredients promoted by Kewpie Qiubi from Japan this year is a hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, known as "the world's smallest molecular weight (about 2000MW)", which can better penetrate the skin's surface layer and promote collagen circulation.
In terms of hyaluronic acid application, Givaudan (Shanghai) has launched a new hyaluronic acid derivative for injectable filling, providing cosmetic alternatives for injection fillers.
Peptides as functional ingredients can be regarded as epoch-making products. Furthermore, as the technology of ingredients improves, various peptides have sprung up. They do not only have rich and diverse categories, but also complete functions, such as various small molecule peptides, transdermal peptides, plant peptides, etc.
One of the main ingredients launched by German CLR this time is an anti-aging active ingredient--- whey protein which is a highly bioactive peptide suitable for restoring skin vitality and eliminating wrinkles. For instance, Shanghai Huiwen launched G15 prebiotics; Niichi Yimaru extracts ceramide from grapefruits; Kewpie Qiubi also launched an eggshell membrane.
2. Washing and Cleaning Series
With the rapid growth of high-end toiletries represented by Ziyuan and Adolf during these years, the washing and bathing market in 2019 will usher in a new explosion. At this exhibition, washing and cleaning ingredients are also one of the hot spots on display.
(1) Prevent hair loss and hair growth.
(2) Organosilicone replaces silicone oil. This year, a large number of organosilicon ingredients appeared at the ingredient exhibition, as a substitute for silicone oil, to improve the safety and use of washing products, making the scalp healthier and products more environmentally friendly.
(3) Silicon-free oil and sulfate-free formula
3. Anti-blue light, anti-fog ingredients are continually Hot
Many companies have launched ingredients that are resistant to blue light and smog, which can also be considered to comply with the market's segmented needs for sun proof and environmental pollution.
4. Preservatives are gradually replacing Ingredients
There are more and more preservative alternatives, such as the appearance of various types of plant preservatives. In Donna's view, this is also an irresistible trend, which can reduce skin irritation and is conducive to the development of the sensitive and vulnerable skin market. Although there are many products like that, in terms of efficacy and skin feel which is to be verified, there is still a long way to go.
