Dermocosmetics! 09.2017

Dermocosmetics are the strongest growing group of products in the skincare segment. Up until 2024 we can expect an average annual growth of more than 10%, worldwide. That is a huge growth if you compare it with other types of products, including anti-aging creams. To illustrate, the ‘Active Cosmetics’ division at L’Oréal, which includes brands like Vichy, La Roche Posay and Skinceuticals, outperforms all their other divisions.

But what is the reason for this success? Key is the consumer. Most of modern consumers see health as a whole of body and mind and try to stay healthy with a combination of a balanced diet, sports, wellness, but also protection and care for their skin. They are much more aware of their skin problems, but in the age of digitalization, they often prefer to inform themselves via google instead of consulting a dermatologist. So they rather self-medicate and go to their pharmacy and buy a skincare product fitting to their needs, regardless whether it’s acne, sensitive skin, dry skin, eczema etc. They want results from the product they buy, they are extremely critical and they don’t believe mainstream cosmetics products will work for them. That’s what makes dermocosmetics extremely successful. The consumer puts tremendous amounts of trust in them.

The expectations of dermocosmetics are straightforward, but not easy to satisfy. The product needs to offer a solution to a specific and often difficult problem and it should be safe. The consumers who use dermocosmetics have a problem and they want it solved. Brands which produce dermocosmetics take their job seriously. They are demanding and want the best and the safest ingredients with the best documentation and technical service from their active ingredient supplier. Who better to go to than CLR?

SyriCalm™ CLR (PC)

SyriCalm™ CLR (PC) is a multifunctional product to soothe, protect, and strengthen skin. It reduces inflammation and calms skin instantly and sustainably, when it gets stressed. It makes skin cells less sensitive to sunlight and other stresses it is exposed to. And it strengthens the skin’s natural barrier functions to make it more resilient.

SyriCalm™ CLR (PC) offers a purely natural solution to fight the threats of cell damage. It is based on Phragmites and Poria cocos, unleashing its unique power in this special combination: SyriCalm™ CLR (PC) “trains” cells in deeper skin layers to better deal with external stresses so that they do not lose their essential functionality. In this way the skin barrier is repaired and maintained, and the skin is less reactive to negative impacts.

SOS Anti-Irritation Gel

Skin irritation is one of the most difficult issues for cosmetic formulations to deal with. More often than not, skin irritation is a consequence of a wide variety of different biological processes in the skin, ‘co-operating’ with each other. Effective anti-irritation activity can therefore only be achieved with a formulation containing active ingredients which are potent and which have a multifunctional approach toward the most important inflammatory processes in the skin. Additionally, skin needs potent support in upholding and, where necessary, repairing its barrier function. This gel was specifically developed for doing just that. It combines SyriCalm™ CLR (PC) and Modukine™, which synergistically work together. These active ingredients are strongly anti-inflammatory and support skin in maintaining its quality. It is easily spread on the skin and absorbed quickly, leaving a smooth and relaxed skin feel.
