surface
The surface of the skin is
by far the most approached
part of the daily beauty
routine. Indeed, there is
no need to wait for the
wrinkles to appear before
starting to talk about a
flawless high definition skin.
From the ages of 20 to 60
and beyond, we all wish to
have a perfectly smooth
skin.

Beauty Creations offers a


wide range of actives able
to resurface, lift and reduce

be accustomed to.

Skin
perfection
The skin is a product of
ones lifestyle. Under the
influence of hormones,
diet and stress it can have
unattractive irregularities
and lose its glow.

To correct and prevent


the skin from these
consequences, one can
exfoliate thickened skin,
purify epidermal florae and
neutralize the produced
sebum. These are some
examples of our actives
offer.

11
Moisturization
Like the body itself, the skin
requires nourishment and
hydration. We give it water,
trace elements, vitamins,
micro-nutrients and we coat
it with plant-based milks for
health - and, of course, for
beauty.

Our expertise allows the


skin to be nourished and
hydrated instantly or long
term, acting on the different
targets such as skin barrier
improvement and physical
protection.

Sensitive skin
Having a sensitive skin is
certainly one of the most
common conditions of the
skin and one of the most
difficult to measure and
evaluate from a clinical
point of view. The skin feels
uncomfortable and inflamed
due to stinging, acne,
burning or allergies.
It is often a matter of
threshold, that one needs
to slightly modulate to
reduce the sensation of
pain. Our cosmetic actives
will support you to achieve
that aim.

Face
architecture
All the attention you can
give to your skin will be
useless if you do not
protect and maintain its
architecture properly. Like a
flower without strong stake,
the skin will collapse and
wrinkles will appear.

In the aim to restoring a


youthful looking face but
preserving ones identity,
our cosmetic actives will
make the skin firmer and
reshape its volume.

Body
architecture
Much like the face, the
skin of the body undergoes
numerous outbreaks and
damages due to hormonal
changes and ageing. How
to keep it smooth and
beautiful?

Our knowledge of skin


biology allows us to shape
the body, make it firmer and
reduce the appearance of
stretch-marks.

Skin
defense
The first step in beauty care
is protection. The skin is
constantly being attacked
from in- and outside.
Therefore, protection needs
to be considered before
starting the correction
process.

Skin must be shielded from


aging accelerators such
as enzyme degradation,
UV rays, glycation and
pollution, to name the
most common ones. The
cosmetic actives we have
created serve this purpose.

Techno view

Technology is a very effective


way to modify the behavior of
a cosmetic active ingredient,
which, when applied alone to
the skin, acts according to its
physical and chemical properties.

In this offering we present the full


range of possibilities that Beauty
Creations can offer to you.

You will discover how to tailor


your formulas by creating
stabilized active cosmetic
ingredients, which will then act
at the required space and time
to maximize its effectiveness and
stability.

24
Treating the skin where needed
Target dry areas
Skin that is dry on the surface has particular characteristics: corneocytes are disorganized and clustered in scaly patches.
Keratin is also negatively charged, and this area can be targeted using positively charged elements.

Target in over areas


The dermal cells create skin firmness. Further down in the skin are the adipocytes, which are involved in slimming
and liposculpture. The technologies allow for penetration to convey active ingredients, intact, to their targets. These
technologies are designed for cosmetic active ingredients that either do not penetrate well or are subject to deterioration
when penetrating the skin.

Treating the skin when needed


Prolong the duration of action on the skin
The application of a free active ingredient produces a high concentration at the moment of application, but it rapidly
diminishes and becomes less effective. The use of delivery systems overcomes this problem by maintaining an effective
level of concentration for a longer period of time and thus intensifying the efficacy of the active cosmetic ingredients.

React only when expose to UV


The tendency is toward the universal use of UV protection, even beyond sun care products. High SPFs are present in
daily skin and hair care products. This chronic use of UV filters can cause irritation and sensitization in the long term. In
response, we have developed an smart technology that reacts when expose to UV to release the cosmetic active.

Stabilize your active ingredients


Co-encapsulate with a protective agent
Anti-oxidants are used across the board in cosmetics. Each anti-oxidant exerts a specific action on a category of ingredients,
lipidic, hydrophilic, etc. The concentration of anti-oxidants is also important in the stabilizing process. For this reason, when
developing active cosmetic ingredient stabilization systems, we isolate the unstable active cosmetic ingredient within the
core of a vector in order to prevent alterations linked to interaction with the formula. We also put a protective agent in the
vector to ensure the maximum protection of the active cosmetic ingredient in the formulation.

Distribute molecules within the vector


Some molecules must be used at relatively low concentrations because going beyond these limits can lead to crystallization
(as in the case of caffeine and ursolic acid). To overcome this problem, the concentration of the active cosmetic ingredient
must be artificially reduced. Here again, technologies offer the solution.

Soften your active ingredients


Improve the kinetics of release on skin
The application of a free active cosmetic ingredient produces a high concentration that can cause irritation. The use of
delivery systems limits the problem and maintains lower concentrations over a longer period. The efficacy is sustained and
the potential for irritation is reduced.

Make your formulas more appealing


Microspheres are attractive and effective. They can encapsulate rare oils, essential minerals or vitamins to embellish the
skins surface.

lightening, protecting, slimming, hydrating...

Liposome Stabilized Plant liposomes composed of soy lecithin surrounded by a matrix of marine collagen and
Liposome stabilized glycosaminoglycans. The surrounding layer has a stabilizing function and reinforces the
