Shiseido Develops a Novel Emulsification Technology
This new technology was presented at the 68th Divisional Meeting on Colloid and Interface Chemistry.
Shiseido has developed a novel “core-corona emulsification” technology that allows versatility in mixing oil and water. This technology gives freedom in choice of oil and its composition ratio for emulsification without using surfactants, which are commonly used in the conventional emulsification technology.
This new technology is expected to offer innovative cosmetics formulations such as “sunscreen with a dewy refreshing texture and high water-resistance” and “highly effective moisturizing cream without a sticky feel” – functions that were hard to balance with conventional technologies.
This new technology was presented at the 68th Divisional Meeting on Colloid and Interface Chemistry on September 7, 2017 in Kobe, Japan and at the 56th Annual Meeting of the Japan Oil Chemists’ Society on September 11, 2017 in Tokyo, in which a Shiseido researcher, Ms. Yuki Sugiyama received the Young Researcher Encouragement Award of Japan Oil Chemists’ Society, Kanto branch. The new emulsification technology will be applied to selected ANESSA products to be launched in February 2018.
