People are becoming more and more conscious of the environment we live in, specifically the damages this can cause to our skin and hair – a term come to be known as ‘polluaging’. Fumes released from vehicles and factories combine to wage war on skin and hair with DNA-mutating free radicals, causing irreparable damage to cells whilst also having a detrimental effect to their regeneration capabilities.
This has lead to an upward trend in the desire for products that work hard to protect against the external and internal environments of day-to-day life, but are also free of harsh chemicals and reduce the impact on the environment.
Brenntag have created a number of formulations for all aspects of personal care, that work hard in functionality, protection, strength and environmental performance. We are proud to present our new SCS Creative Concept:
Protect, Repair, Supercharge
Through research and testing in our cosmetic science lab, we have incorporated smart, multi functional ingredients into a product range that will inspire and provide sustainable, exciting solutions to the increasing needs and desires of the modern consumer. We hope our collections of new formulations developed in Brenntag Cosmetics Laboratory in Amiens, France, under close collaboration with the UK & Ireland team, will keep you inspired and aid in your quest for true product differentiation and innovation.
Our team of cosmetic scientists will be on the stand to discuss at length the product ranges by Akzo Nobel, Oxiteno, Elkem, Colonial Chemicals, Corbion, Inabata, Textron, Stephenson Personal Care, Multichem R&D and many more.

Some formulations to mention...
Make-up Remover Stick
You expect more from your make-up now more than ever, not only to look better, but to last all day. Heavy make-up combined with pollution particulates requires a cleanser that works harder. This formulation removes even the toughest make-up, including waterproof mascara, whilst cleansing your face from daily pollution. Apply directly to face and wash with warm water to reveal beautifully cleansed, luxuriously soft skin. As this cleanser is in stick form, you can take this with you wherever you are without risk of leaking, for beautifully clean skin wherever you are. We are proud to announce that this formulation has been shortlisted as one of the finalists for the Laura Marshall Memorial Award at this year’s SCS.
When defending your skin from ‘polluaging’, being proactive is your best defence. This lightweight formula helps to keep skin soft and hydrated all day as well as providing protection from those pesky particulates. An intelligent active ingredient creates an invisible barrier on the surface of your skin to keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out.
Legs on the Go
Our modern hectic lifestyle means we can be left feeling aching and tired at the end of the day. Alleviate the sensation of heavy legs, this formulation contains a clever active ingredient that increases microcirculation, resulting in a mild tingling sensation to help soothe weary legs as well as containing a further active ingredient that, when combined with caffeine, aids the breakdown of triglyceride stocks. This means that this cream works harder to relieve the discomfort of a hectic day and to slim-down, smooth and reduce cellulite. Who needs the gym?!
O2 Shower Gel
Packed full of antioxidants thanks to a natural dye that will scavenge any nasty free radicals we pick up and increase oxygenation of your cells, this shower gel is like a breath of fresh air for your skin. Best of all, this formulation is extremely mild and gentle so it is suitable for sensitive skin.
Burning the candles at both ends? Hide the evidence with this intelligent formulation that helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles. This formulation contains a powerful antioxidant; an active ingredient helping to boost microcirculation around the eye area teamed with the cool stainless steel ball applicator which will help to restrict blood vessels. Dark eyes will be a thing of the past! Go on, stay out for one more…
