Symrise HOGO, a unique search platform for ingredient selection for modern product protection at the press of a button

In Japanese, HOGO means protection. In the future, the new cosmetic product protection online platform, HOGO by Symrise will simplify formulation work for cosmetic manufacturers. Whether face or body care, lotion or shampoo: The comprehensive database that serves as the basis for the online platform allows formulators to promptly obtain a list of suitable ingredients for preserving cosmetic products at anytime, anywhere around the world. The platform offers access to potential combinations as well as information about dose of ingredients. Another benefit is that the tool can also provide users with efficacy data.


A natural-based 360° approach for optimized sunscreen formulations

Consumers expect from their sunscreen products not only highly effective protection from UV rays, optimal water resistance, formulation stability but at the same time a light and dry skin feel. The rising environmental awareness also leads to a higher demand for responsibly sourced and sustainable ingredients. The formulator’s dilemma is to find sustainably sourced alternatives to ingredients that are under scrutiny such as SPF-boosters, film formers and other typically synthetic or silicone-derived raw materials used in sunscreens - without compromising the formulation performance, stability and skin feel. Here we describe a multifunctional blend that is unique in its natural and holistic approach to the multiple challenges of formulating modern sunscreen products. It can effectively enhance the efficiency of the used UV-filters, improve the water resistance and formulation stability, and has a beneficial impact on the skin feel of the emulsions. Based on responsibly sourced raw materials, it is the next step towards a higher degree of sustainability and naturalness in sun protection cosmetics.
