Topic: Application of Novel Sodium Hyaluronate in Personal Care
Hyaluronic acid (HA) was first discovered in 1934 from a cow's vitreous body. It was discovered that HA plays a crucial role in cell metabolism and physiological processes which lead to tissue repair. In the 1970s, HA was first applied in intra-articular injection and eye surgery then used as dermal filler in 1980s, and in the beginning of 1990s, added to personal care products.
nitially HA was used in personal care for its' moisturizing effect. Different molecular weight HAs have different physical characteristics and different areas of use. As the research on HA progressed, additional properties of HA and new derivatives were discovered that have unique activity on the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a linear polysaccharide with repeating disaccharides. Standard HA has a molecular weight of 200kDa to 4Million Da. One of the first discoveries was to use chemical or enzymatic degradation technology to produce HA Oligomers (Extremely low molecular weight, Mw ＜10k Da). This technology has progressed to now create a less than 5kDa product. These Oligomer products have very different activity than standard HA.
In addition to the small Oligomers, researchers have also created larger HA polymers using cross-linking technology to produce very different activity. In the recent years, new derivatives of HA have been researched that add a lipophilic group to increase skin affinity; combine HA with other molecules to create a synergistic effect to improve skin color uniformity, skin construction and moisturization; create an oil-dispersible format for use in color cosmetics and anhyrdrous formulas; create a substantive HA for
rinse-off products. Finally, some are claiming to have created a “plant HA.” All these options for HA can create confusion for product development and the chemist to know which product to use to get the desired results. This information will help to make the best, well-informed choice. HA’s are NOT all the same.
Dr. Giuseppe Calloni is Vice President of Bloomage Biotech USA, Inc. a part of Bloomage Biotechnology Corporation Limited….a worldwide leader in fermented Sodium Hyaluronate,Hyaluronic Acid and bioactive ingredients for personal care, food supplement and pharmaceutical industries. He is responsible for market development and growth throughout North, Central and South America.
Dr. Calloni received a doctorate in Atomic and Molecular Physics from University of Milan and completed additional studies in Physical Chemistry of Colloids and Interfaces at the University of Bristol, UK. He began his career in colloid chemistry in oilfield production. He moved to the personal care industry with Sasol as manager of R&D providing technical assistance to key accounts worldwide. In 2000 he moved to Res Pharma in Italy and was in charge of international development, focusing on North America and Asia. In 2003 he managed the European sales network for Rhodia (now part of Solvay) and in 2005 was co-founder and VP of Sales for Biophil Suisse (now Levhoss) manufacturing specialty ingredients for personal care and skin care. It is here that he worked with sodium hyaluronate from Freda (later to become Bloomage Freda). In 2009 he joined Induchem AG (now part of Givaudan Active Beauty) as Senior VP responsible for global marketing and sales. In 2012 he moved his family to the US and was a partner in Freedom Actives focusing on specialized ingredients for the cosmetic/personal care industry.
In 2014 Dr. Calloni became the Vice President of Bloomage Freda Biopharm USA, establishing their US office and sales structure. Dr. Colloni is author and co-author of over 20 articles from colloid chemistry to personal care/cosmetic chemistry. An interesting fact about Dr. Colloni. Due to his expertise in colloid chemistry, from 1997-1999 he was honored and privileged to head the technical team restoring the façade of St. Peter Cathedral at the Vatican in Rome. Here he was an expert in Geo Radar analysis, Infra-Red analysis and colloid chemistry.
Topic: A Cosmetic Chemists Guide to Clean Beauty
Clean Beauty has become a popular marketing positioning for many brands. What originally started in the food industry, it has even over taken natural in terms of popularity among product marketers. Clean beauty offers a number of formulating advantages over natural beauty. In this talk we will cover the development of Clean Beauty, what it means and how cosmetic formulators need to adapt to formulate for the clean beauty consumer.
Perry Romanowski is an independent cosmetic chemistry who has spent the past 25 years developing products in the personal care and cosmetic industry. He has worked on both hair and skin care products but primarily focusing on hair. He is currently vice president of Element 44 Inc which specialized in science education. In 2014, Romanowski created the Practical Cosmetic Formulating online training program to provide cosmetic chemists continuing education across a broad range of formula categories. He served as the 2018 President of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC).
Previously, Romanowski worked for Alberto Culver serving as a senior project leader for hair care innovation. Additionally, he has made appearances on popular TV shows including the Dr. Oz show and the Rachel Ray show.
Romanowski received his B.S. in Chemistry from DePaul University and also studied Biochemistry. He has written and edited numerous articles and books, taught the SCC’s Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry continuing education class, and developed various websites. In addition, he provides consulting services for cosmetic formulating, testing and Internet solutions; he can be reached through his website, http://chemistscorner.com
