2024-06-07 16:22:48

In the era of strong efficacy, the cosmetics industry has set off a boom of "roll technology", and at the same time, "Chinese ingredients" are highly sought after, showing high growth potential. Sales of cosmetics with "Chinese ingredients" rose 9.3 per cent year on year from January to August 2023, according to industry data. More and more domestic beauty brands are deeply studying Chinese characteristic raw materials. Data from the official website of the National Medical Products Administration show that 53 of the 69 new raw materials filed in the cosmetics industry in 2023 come from Chinese local enterprises, accounting for 77%.

Ingredients are the soul of cosmetics. The emergence of "Chinese ingredients" is a marketing concept on the surface, but in essence a profound reform of China's industrial chain. It is the result of self-improvement and accumulation of domestic enterprises in science and technology. The 28th CBE China Beauty Expo was held as scheduled in Shanghai, China from May 22 to 24. The innovative ingredients brought functional innovation of products in face, wash care, styling, fragrance and other categories, covering oil control and hydration, whitening, anti-aging, etc., thus forming a diversified and rich differentiated product matrix and forming a series of products with Chinese characteristics. It has become a highlight of the Beauty Expo, thus creating a solid competition barrier for Chinese cosmetics manufacturers.

More and more enterprises begin to seek strategic cooperation with upstream raw material suppliers to create "exclusive raw materials." For example, "Regulations on the Management of Cosmetics Registration and Filing Materials" requires that the product formula of cosmetic enterprises must be disclosed, which means that the "secret" of the brand may be copied by competitors. However, if the ingredients of a brand are exclusively customized and have the "exclusive right to use," other brands will not be able to completely copy the formula even if they know it, because they cannot obtain the "exclusive raw materials."

As the top leading manufacturer of carbomer and acrylates copolymer, we have cosmetics grade carbomers, including traditional carbomer such as NM-Carbomer 960, carbomer 990, carbomer 941, but also improved carbomer such as NM-Carbomer 20, 2020, 21, 1342, 1382 with INCI Name: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer. Also, liquid carbomer such as NM-Carbomer SF-1, with INCI name: acrylates copolymer.

Our professional technical team, actively pay attention to the industry development trend and relevant regulations, continue to introduce safer raw materials to meet the market demand, to meet the changing market demand.

To cope with the need for sun protection in the coming summer, we have launched NM-Carbomer TR-1, NM-Carbomer TR-2, with INCI Name: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Cross polymer. They are non-ethoxylated polymer to simplify the formulation of mild, oil-in-water emulsions great for sunscreen formulations, NM-Carbomer TR-1 and TR-2 are a high molecular weight, cross-linked copolymer of acrylic acid and a hydrophobic C10-30 alkyl acrylate co-monomer. They are versatile, non-ethoxylated polymer designed to create stable and mild oil-in-water emulsions at low use levels. They are great choice for use in many skin care formulations. NM-Carbomer TR-1 and TR-1 as emulsifier should be used with carbomers to provide greater thickening properties where higher viscosity emulsions are required
