Cosmedia® Ace

BASF Personal Care introduces Cosmedia® Ace by Care Creations - a new innovative skin care ingredient that offers strong emulsifying properties with elegant textures and velvety skin after feel. This liquid dispersion polymer demonstrates a strong thickening ability across a broad PH range and can be added easily to any stage of a formulation, hot or cold.

Back to Basics - Rheology Modifiers

At BASF Care Creations we understand the need for formulation expertise. In this video, we will take a trip back to basics and explore the use of Rheology Modifiers in thick styling products. Rheology modifiers are polymers commonly used in hair styling products to provide changes in product texture and thickening. This video will discuss the swelling mechanism of ionic and non-ionic polymers. Although we will discuss the macroscopic behavior of the polymer in the absence and presence of a neutralizer, we will also discuss the behavior of the polymers in the molecular level. The mechanisms will be illustrated by BASF thickening polymers in aqueous solutions. We will then highlight liquid dispersion polymers, or LDPs, ready-made blends of hydrophilic, swell-able polymer micro-particles; a lipophilic carrier; and an emulsifier. LDPs facilitate the cold-processing of emulsions by taking the “guess-work” out of mixing the correct ratios of emulsifiers, emollients, and thickeners. Similarly to thickening polymers, a sample BASF LDP product will be used to thicken an aqueous solution.


We developed Speci’Men™, a 100% natural and Ecocert approved Baobab leaf extract that reduces the accumulation of nonperforming versican, which contributes specifically to the health of men’s skin. The skin appears refreshed, skin tonicity is improved, signs of fatigue around the eyes and wrinkles are reduced.
