An Italian academic spin-off founded in 2010 in the farmaceutical sector has developed advanced techniques to deliver polymerics compounds for dermocosmetics. The company has applied the technique to produce three lines of products for hair, skin and intimate care with a long-lasting effect. Other customised solutions can be developed. The company is looking for producers of cosmetics interested in enlarging their offer with new features under a manufacturing agreement.
An academic spin-off in the farmaceutical sector, founded in 2010 by an industrial research team, and based in a large university in the south of Italy, has developed advanced techniques to deliver functional products for cosmetics, dermocosmetics, nutraceutics and pharmaceutics. In particular, the company has developed a method to produce polymerics compounds based on Hyaluronic Acid with high molecular weight and milk's proteins, so that the two macro-molecule are interconnected at molecular level. Such a compound can be used to deliver active principles for skin and hair care with an improved performance and a long-lasting effect (see the attached graph). In particular, the company has already developed several specific products and it is able to provide other customised products. The three lines of products already available are: - Hair care: Moisturizer, Restructuring, Protective, Fall prevention by an interonnected polymerics blend with keratin, tea antioxidants, poliquaternium, Argan oil, oregano and green tea. - Skin care: Moisturizer, Anti-age, skin imperfections by an interonnected polymerics blend with trehalose, urea, glycerin, bioactives of bilberry and milk thistle, green tea polyphenols, glycolic acid, vitamin C and E. - Intimate Care: Antibacterial / Anti-odor, Soothing, Refreshing by an interonnected polymerics blend with oregano, licorice and natural bisabolol, rosemary and peppermint The company is looking for producers of cosmetics interested in enlarging their offer with new features. The company is mainly interested in manufacturing agreements to produce the new compounds and possibly, to develop other customised solutions in addition to those above mentioned.
Innovations and advantages
The special interconnected polymerics blend is able to obtain a "long-lasting" effect, so important for skin and hair care, by increasing the stability of the active substances carried by the matrix: in fact, when such substances are free they are subject to degradation processes that limit theireffectiveness to a few hours. Such an improved perfomance is due to: - A synergic effect deriving from the combination of the two polymeric matrices - A multimodal action produced by the polimeric blend and by the active principles - Increased stability of the final product - Increased loading capacity of active substances from the polymer matrix and therefore of the final product.

Area of partner's activity
The company is looking for producers of cosmetics, already on the market, and interested in enlarging their offer with new features and/or products for skin, hair and intimate care. The company is interested in manufacturing agreements to produce and deliver the interconnected polymers blend carrying active substances. In addition to those mentioned above (e.g., keratin, tea antioxidants, poliquaternium, Argan oil, oregano, licorice, bisabolol, rosemary, peppermint, green tea, bilberry, milk thistle, trehalose, urea, glycerin, glycolic acid, vitamin C and E, etc.) the company is ready to develop other specific solutions.
