Berg+Schmidt's New BergaCare AquaLipids!

Berg+Schmidt launches a new range of advanced active oils for high efficiency in different formulation types.

BergaCare AquaLipids are specially processed natural oils that are water dispersible and therefore easy to handle in a variety of applications, such as water-based serums, fluids, toners and o/w emulsions. What's more, the ingredients are able to modulate sensory properties of the finished product.

In contrast to base oils, active oils are characterized by high proportions of vitamins, antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids for enhanced regenerative and cosmetic effects. BergaCare AquaLipids are also technically advanced for ease of use of the valuable but sensitive active ingredients. As they are water-dispersible, new formulations can be designed quickly and therefore cost-effectively, or simply added to existing formulations for added functional benefits. The active oils of BergaCare AquaLipids are not chemically modified and all are of natural origin. Moreover, they readily mix with water without the need for solubilizers, thus enhancing skin compatibility and reducing the foaming sensation during application.

The Benefits of BergaCare AquaLipids are:

  • Water dispersible systems that contain precious oils with high proportions of vitamins, antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids
  • Ease of application: Good way to use sensitive active oils without needing to create an emulsion
  • Add-in approach, no need to modify existing formulas
  • Access to modified formulation textures with short development time

BergaCare AquaLipids Cassis BR contains a combination of blackcurrant and rosehip seed oil, resulting in a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, e.g. gamma, alpha-linolenic and linoleic acids. This special composition promises improvement in the regulation of sebum production and anti-inflammatory effects, along with a pleasant skin feel and fast absorption. This product is suggested for applications catered to oily, acne prone skin, and skin with weak barrier.

Pomegranate seed oil contains the highly beneficial punicic acid, which has a powerful antioxidant effect and thus helps counteract skin ageing in mature skin. It also contains numerous skin regenerating substances such as phytosterols, polyphenols and flavonoids. This valuable oil is processed into BergaCare AquaLipids Punica PS along with skin regenerating sea buckthorn oil making it suitable for mature & dried out skin.

BergaCare AquaLipids Melon BK contains the valuable oil of the Kalahari melon. With its extremely high linoleic acid content, it provides valuable building blocks for the development of the skin barrier and supports epidermal moisturization and hydration. The second key ingredient in this new product is bulbine frutescens leaf juice, which supports elasticity and collagen production, making it ideal for dry, aged, and sensitive skin.

BergaCare AquaLipids Bisabolol AR is designed for sensitive skin due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Key ingredients are an oily extract with a high concentration of alpha-bisabolol, a chamomile-derived molecule, and soothing rice bran oil. This product is suggested for applications in after sun care as it is catered to sensitive and irritated skin.
