Air Products’ Versum Materials™ to Showcase InuMax Advanced Retinol Delivery System at NYSCC Suppliers Day 2016

Cosmetic Additive Can Enhance Retinol Stability and Lower Skin Irritation While Delivering High Load of Retinol

Air Products’ (NYSE:APD) Versum Materials™ will be highlighting its innovative InuMax Advanced Retinol Cosmetic Active during the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists’ (NYSCC) Suppliers Day event, May 10-11, in booth 311 at the New Jersey Convention Center, Edison, N.J. 

The new InuMax Advanced Retinol Delivery System is based on newly developed InuMax technology, which is designed specifically to demonstrate excellent ingredient delivery and stability performance where higher-active loads are preferred.

Retinol is among the most well-known and well-studied cosmetic ingredients available to formulators that design anti-aging products. Brands are increasingly differentiating their products through retinol use-level claims, such as “contains x% retinol.” Formulating such systems can present unique challenges that many retinol solutions were not optimized to address. High retinol levels elevate the risk of skin irritation, can lead more readily to yellowing of a formulation, and can elevate consumer expectations of efficacy.

The InuMax Advanced Retinol product was created specifically to help address these concerns. It can provide a high degree of retinol stability, and notably lower skin irritation, while enabling delivery of a high load of retinol to the deeper skin layers to encourage the appearance of more youthful skin.
