Cosmetic science is not just about mixing different ingredients and (microbiological) stability of the end product. A good cosmetic scientist has knowledge about dermatology and hair technology, where relevant. The regulatory aspects of the cosmetic industry should be known and she or he should also understand the marketing side of the cosmetic industry. Understanding toxicology and microbiology are other important traits.

A cosmetic product is only successful when it is well-formulated, efficacious, safe, in compliance with the law and appealing to consumers.

In the light of the above, we think CLR Berlin’s expertise is valuable for our customers and distributors. Below you will find in-depth information on topics which we have recognized to be of specific interest to cosmetic scientists worldwide. By providing this information we aim to give clear and unambiguous information, supporting formulators in making the best cosmetic formulations possible.

Sense about „Microbiome Skincare“

Our skin’s microbiome is set to become an integral part of skincare regimens in the future. A growing number of cosmetic brands anticipate on this by launching new products either positively influencing the ‘health’ of the skin microbiome or making use of ingredients based on microbes, mostly probiotics, or both. The question is, what is a healthy skin microbiome? And how can we make improvements in the skin microbiome? Is there room for improvement at all? What cosmetically relevant outcomes can be expected?
