Skin and Sun Care

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Skin, the body's largest organ, covers the entire body, yet differs significantly from region to region from head and shoulders, knees and even toes.  The face has an entire 'map' of it's own from the sensitive skin around the eyes to the T zone, that can be oily or even oily and dry at the same time.  It takes a company with teams of solvers to keep faces, hands, feet and body clean, healthy and safe from the sun. The teams at Ashland are ready to help you solve problems and deliver results.  Our knowledge of polymers and formulation architecture can help deliver the best texture to maximize the allure of your face creams, improve the useability of body washes, enhance the integrity and efficacy of sun care products to help build loyal customers. Ashland formulators are ready to help you meet the needs of the many parts of the whole - body that is.

Sun Care
Today’s consumer trends include health, wellness and simplification. In the sun care market, this translates into ingredients that protect skin and hair from the harmful effects of UV radiation. These trends translate into everyday skin care products that provide sun protection, as well as sun care products with additional benefits such as moisturization.  With Ashland, formulators have a single and in depth line of both skin care and sun care product ingredients to choose from. Combine this with Ashland’s formulation expertise and testing facilities and capabilities and you have the trifecta of sun/skincare formulating.
