Navigating the Future of Clean beauty with DKSH Personal Care
Global Personal Care Trends
Multiple studies show that the vast majority of consumers globally prefer beauty brands that promote natural and organic products. At the same time, there has been a significant increase in buying decisions favoring products with a positive environmental footprint. According to Simon-Kucher & Partners' Global Sustainability Study 2021 survey conducted in July 2021, 85% of customers have shifted toward sustainable products in the last half-decade, with Millennials and Gen Z leading the trend and exceeding Gen X and Baby Boomers.
Sustainability: A Core Value at DKSH
As a result of this transformation, it is critical for businesses to embrace sustainability. This acts not only to foster a positive brand image, but also to keep up with market trends and make a significant community impact. At DKSH Personal Care, Sustainability is one of the cornerstones of our vision. We aim to lead the industry by focusing on clean beauty and championing sustainability through our Simplience concept: functional ingredients that balance formulation science with simplicity and efficiency.
DKSH is proud to introduce 2 formulations created by our Innovation Center that exemplify our commitment to sustainability by leveraging sustainable ingredients and low energy process:
1. Double Acting Make-Up Remover
This is a natural two-layer make-up remover with high cleansing performance. It improves uneven skin texture and tone while minimizing the appearance of pores. The dual-action formula is designed to both cleanse and nourish the skin.
Key ingredients used in the Double Action Make-Up Remover facilitate room-temperature, low-shear processing, thereby reducing production energy requirements, which equates to carbon-footprint reduction over time.
Showcasing our Simplience concept, the Double Acting Make-Up Remover prominently features two primary ingredients:
· ALOFERM HF: aloe reinforced with phytocomplex for deep moisturization.
· VASLight: optimized vegetable replacement to highly volatile silicones
