Skin care on a larger scale? Products aimed at problem areas? Or an holistic approach and a sensual experience?
Make up can now be considered to be an extension of skin care. Anti-ageing and SPF claims are increasingly being used and many of Adina skin care active ingredients are ideal for incorporating into foundations and lip products. Refer also to Delivery Systems for actives that can be delivered in a powder form.
A range of delivery systems are available which can help you achieve enhanced penetration of actives, protect and stabilise an ingredient or overcome formulation incompatibilities. They can be either imperceptible to the user or offer a dramatic visual impact to create pack appeal.
Healthy hair and a healthy scalp can easily be achieved if we live in a clean, stress free environment and avoid the use of chemical treatments. However, the reality is that washing, styling, pollution, sunlight and heat, can dry and damage the hair and changing fashions dictate that we should straighten, curl and lighten or darken our hair. This presents the formulators with a multitude of challenges to achieve a ‘Crowning Glory’
Shaving causes irritation and well formulated shaving products can help reduce much of this irritation at source. The addition of anti-irritation actives and soothing products can further help allieviate these symptoms and importantly, men's shaving also presents the opportunity to introduce anti-ageing skin care to the male grooming regime.
Multi-functionality is the key to modern skin care regimes. The traditional "cleanse, tone and moisturise" has greatly expanded to allow the inclusion of multiple active ingredients to protect and rejuvenate the skin in all types and classes of skincare products. The boundaries between product types are becoming less defined as day creams have UV protection and acne treatments have anti-ageing actives.
Sunlight has many negative effects on human health. Skin damage not only occurs after short term exposure to high intensity ultra-violet radiation (e.g. sunbathing) but also after longer-term exposure to lower levels of sunlight. These harmful effects are compounded by the generation of reactive oxygen species that cause further cellular damage.
