Ease the stress!

People all over the world are increasingly concerned about the effects of stress on their health. And according to market analysts Mintel, more and more consumers are linking stress to skin condition.

In the UK, for example, 66% of women feel that a stressful lifestyle is affecting the appearance of their skin. Consequently, consumers are looking for ways to streamline their beauty care regime giving them a little extra “me time” to relax and re-energise.

DSM’s no-stress ingredients and formulations

DSM has developed a range of skin, hair, sun and makeup ingredients and formulations to ease the stress on consumers. These include:

BEL-EVEN - for skin relief from day-to-day stresses
The body uses cortisol, a natural hormone, to deal with stresses of all kinds. However, when this line of defence is overloaded and levels of cortisol in the skin are persistently high, skin may react with undesirable signs of premature ageing. DSM has developed a timely cosmetic solution able to sustainably rebalance the skin’s own stress management system.

PENTAVITIN - the true hydration artist
City life is an amazing experience but it exposes skin to constant attack, causing it to dry out easily. Amazing images demonstrate the true hydration power of DSM’s natural moisture-magnet PENTAVITIN. Three hours after a single application, excessively dry skin areas are already much better hydrated. Used daily, PENTAVITIN improves the appearance of stressed skin, provides powerful hydration to all facial areas, giving consumers a confidence boost.

UV Flash Tone for one-step care
Inspired by Korean tone-up creams, this formulation blurs the boundaries between skin care, makeup and sun care. Although it is transparent, this fluid UV Flash Tone provides a velvet sensation and a smooth, flawless “glass” skin. Enriched in UV-filters and actives its provides efficient protection against UV and blue light.

Alp’Dry Shampoo
For stress-free hair care between washes, this dry shampoo leaves hair and scalp feeling fresh and clean with minimum fuss.

Messy Matte Gum
