Why wait for a change? Dare to be different as fortune favours the brave. After all, your new look becomes your new outlook, so go on, do it! Hair is very emotional as it delivers a quick and effective way of saying who you personally are to the outside world. A proprietary DSM Consumer Insights study revealed that most of the people are imprisoned by a routine in hair care. However, people also want to feel a sense of freedom and therefore use their products to regain some level of experimentation and balance.
The DSM solution brings the right balance between routine and freedom: Dare to change your hair routine with our new TILAMAR polymer range & formulation concepts. Read more about our new members: TILAMAR Quat 710, 711, 712; TILAMAR Quat 641 and TILAMAR Quat 2241!

AMPHISOL K : Revealing the power of robust emulsification

AMPHISOL K became the gold standard for formulation types difficult to stabilize. Being well established as signature emulsifier for sunscreens and convinced with compelling emulsification power in other applications as well. AMPHISOL K provides highest flexibility for various application forms such as from creme to sprays or over a broad pH-range. This emulsifier is proven for thermal and long-term stability. For the first time, DSM has visualized the mechanism of action of AMPHISOL K in a video. Do not miss it – Read more

SYN-STAR: The Global Beauty Maximiser

DSM continues to lead global peptide research by discovering new cosmetic properties within its peptide innovation platform.

SYN-STAR – an innovation based on existing patented peptide technology – showed, for the first time, a global anti-ageing and mattifying effect in a study on three different skin tones. The enzyme PLOD3 (procollagen-lysine, -oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase 3) is known to be important for the stability of intermolecular collagen crosslinks. New in-vitro tests confirmed that SYN-STAR stimulates PLOD3, increasing collagen stability, specifically in mature skin, by a factor of more than 4.

 Data from other recent research revealed a positive effect of SYN-STAR on sebum flow. In an in-vitro assay SYN-STAR was shown to inhibit DPP4 (dipeptidyl peptidase-4), a key enzyme involved in sebum flow. A survey of volunteers, 83% of women agreed that they felt more confident and ready for a fabulous day after a 4% treatment with SYN-STAR. Read more

SYN-UP: Boost the skin’s resilience for confidence in great looking skin

DSM continues to lead global peptide research by discovering new cosmetic properties within its peptide innovation platform.

Today we know that skin resilience is all-important. Skin with high resilience offers new opportunities to act sustainably against dry skin conditions. The epidermis has a key function in skin resilience and DSM research has shown that urokinase and plasmin, two serine proteases in the epidermis, play a crucial role in the development of good skin resilience. DSM therefore designed SYN-UP, a unique patented synthetic peptide derivative, to restore the skin’s youthful resilience to dry skin conditions. SYN-UP has a great capacity to rebalance urokinase and plasmin. It provides a perceivable defence against dry skin conditions and unpleasant sensations, meaning consumers can have confidence in achieving great looking skin.
