Syntopix wins backing for skincare research

Tuesday, 21st December 2010
Antimicrobial research company Syntopix Group plc has secured backing from Intelligent Formulation Ltd for a 30-day international research challenge into formulation design for skincare products.

The company said Intelligent Formulation, which supports businesses involved in formulation, received more than 20 proposals and selected two applicants to support.

Syntopix said it will work with experts from across the world to characterise microemulsions made from environmentally friendly surfactants, especially those used to make skincare cosmetics.

It is hoped the resulting data will help scientists to formulate new cosmetic, pharmaceutical and personal care products.

CEO Steve Jones said, 'Formulating microemulsions can be problematic due to its trial and error nature and is made all the more difficult by the lack of physical parameters available to inform their design.

'Our research project will help determine some of these essential parameters to speed up selection of ingredients.

'The project will give our formulation work a huge boost and ensure we can develop products right first time, saving both time and money.'

Practical work is scheduled to finish in early January and publication of surfactant parameters is planned for April.
