We sometime lose sight of just how amazing our skin is. As the largest organ in the human body, our skin is its first defense against the environment, offering protection against sun exposure, air pollution, water loss, pathogen, and microorganism attack.
Our skin also indirectly tells the story of our health, nutritional choices, and skincare regime to the outside world. As the search for a more youthful appearance continues, so will consumer requirements for age-defying products such as moisturizers and serums! 1
Healthy skin plays a role in our day-to-day social interactions too, offering an important psychological element in building good relationships and self-esteem. In fact, research tell us that skin disease and premature ageing have been flagged as a contributing factor of depression and mental health problems – making the need for effective products ever more important.2
Globally, the anti-ageing cosmetics and beauty market is expected to reach $75.81bn in 2030 with a CAGR of 5.5%. Growth is fueled by the increased purchasing power of an ageing global population and the associated increase and prevalence of skin disorders. Another factor is the increased adoption of natural ingredients in beauty formulations to minimize skin ageing: it is exactly here that lucrative opportunities for industry players are being developed.3
To benefit from this growing sector, formulators must invest in the right ingredients and science-backed formulations that can target wrinkles and fine lines for a more youthful appearance, keeping this resilient, yet delicate organ in top condition!
How we can help
At Oleon Health and Beauty, our emollient portfolio ranges from heavy to very light emollients to fulfil the sensorial needs of different skin types while protecting the delicate skin microbiome against various invasive agents, including sun exposure, pollution, and adverse weather conditions.
With the use of our refined range of Jolee® ingredients, skin barrier strength can be recovered by slowing down the evaporation of water in the skin. In addition, our emollients have an elasticizing and lubricating effect, resulting in a soft and smooth feeling – ideal for anti-ageing and rejuvenating skincare formulations. Read on for some of our top performing ingredients you should consider during your next product development drive.
Our headline ingredient, Jolee® 7181, is a heavy emollient with film-forming properties that protects the skin from water loss. With its water-resistant properties it has a sensory feel that is very close to that of mineral oils.
As a 100% natural water-dispersible emollient, Jolee® 7244 can notably improve hydration levels in the skin and has been evaluated to prove its beneficial use as a re-fattening agent.
On the flipside, our 100% natural silicone-like emollients offer an exquisite sensory profile that is comparable to that of high benchmarked high volatile silicones. Excellent spread, absorption and unique lightness are all typical of Jolee® 7202 with its slight oil feel on application that finishes with a unique powdery after-feel.
If you require a highly substantive lipid film, Jolee® 7739 is the right product for your formulation. Offering a branched structure with a non-greasy feel, it leaves skin feeling soft with a glossy appearance.
