BASF Embraces Personalization in Cosmetics

  • BASF designs customizable Face and Hair Care formulations
  • Mixing and matching of boosters allows for countless combinations

More and more people consider beauty and care routines as a key to individualization and diversity. BASF is meeting the growing consumer expectation for cosmetic products that reflect the individual needs and nuances of their everyday world with a winning new concept for personalized cosmetics. “Individual expression is among the most important megatrends currently shaping the cosmetics industry on a global scale,” said Jason McAlpine, Vice President Business Management Personal Care Solutions Europe. “That’s a balancing act for cosmetic manufacturers because it means that their products need to be effective for many while responding to the distinct wishes and needs of the individual. With our ingredients and formulation expertise, we are able to help our customers meet this challenge.” BASF’s new concept is based upon diverse chassis formulations for Face and Hair Care that, when combined with high performance boosters, enable consumers to create their own tailor-made products in harmony with their personal needs.

Personalized cosmetics for every moment in life

Just as no two faces are the same, lifestyles differ, our preferences and needs change, and each of us is subject to different external factors. To meet this challenge, BASF has designed four chassis formulations for Face Care that target different consumer groups according to age, and their preferences in texture and naturalness. Each formulation is provided with two recommended boosters,  e.g. to soothe and rejuvenate the skin, to offer urban protection or to increase skin firmness, that can be used to personalize the final application based upon consumers’ current needs.​ It is even possible to mix and match chassis formulations and boosters, resulting in countless combination possibilities. For Hair Care applications, BASF’s new concept comprises two chassis conditioner formulations and four boosters that offer volume, brilliance, anti-pollution, and suppleness to the hair – the latter two boosters being formulated according to the COSMOS Standard for Natural Cosmetics.

The components should be mixed in the hand and directly be applied to face and hair.
