Skincare Actives Designed to meet Anti-Aging Trends & Performance

How is the skin care market changing?

Anti-aging skin care solutions are top of mind for consumers. Consumers are actively educating themselves on both the factors that impact skin aging and the ingredients to look for in their skin care products. This is why formulators of skin care products rely on ingredients that are designed to meet consumer desired benefits.

Traditionally ingredient suppliers start with an ingredient and, through trial and error, try to discover the benefits of this ingredient. DSM starts with the consumer desired end benefit and designs the best ingredient solutions to deliver those benefits.

What makes rational design unique?

DSM’s rational design approach starts with a deep understanding of the chemistry and biology of how the skin works and results in the development of optimized potent skin care actives with standardized and highly effective mechanisms of action. Some of the key DSM Skincare potent active peptides and specialty bioactives according to consumer benefit include:
