Every year on March 22, experts and humanitarian organizations warn of the current worsening water scarcity on UNESCO’s World Water Day.
With the effects of climate change, water has become a scarce and precious resource, the preservation of the oceans and natural water reserves has become a priority that we must preserve at all costs.
This is why Laboratoire Orescience is involved in the research and development of so-called « anhydrous » skincare formulations, namely without water, for a greener future.
Waterless cosmetics: much more than a trend, a big step forward in terms of environmental technology.
This new trend in waterless cosmetics demonstrates that water is no longer an essential ingredient in cosmetic formulation.
Most cosmetic formulas contain water, which is frequently used as a solvent or to improve the consistency and application of the product.
Generally, the list of ingredients (INCI) of a cosmetic formula begins with the term « Aqua / Water », the ingredients are listed in decreasing percentage, that is to say that it represents a high proportion in the formulations.
Depending on the formulas, water can represent up to 98% of the total content of a product.
This figure may seem surprising, but which can be explained by the essential role that this substance plays in the formulation of a cosmetic product.
What are the advantages of waterless cosmetics?
The growing success of this new trend is spreading, not only because of its positive impact on the environment, but because of their more skin-friendly properties.
More natural and powerful formulations, which contain no emulsifiers or preservatives.
Ultra concentrated products that are very economical to use, which allows the end consumer to have a considerably longer product use cycle.
Waterless cosmetics are suitable for all skin types?
Based on plant extracts and / or oils, rich in vitamins and antioxidants that penetrate more easily into the skin in order to repair, hydrate and revitalize it, which is why waterless cosmetics are particularly suitable for dry skin and skin prone to barrier disorders.
