Oleosomes: Nature’s Delivery System

O

James V. Gruber, Ph.D.

leosomes are triglyceride oils (unique for each plant seed) surrounded by a phospholipid shell that is then enshrouded in a monolayer sphere of oleosin proteins. An in-depth discussion of the structure of the oil seed oleosome can be found in a review article by Jason Tzen.1 Nature creates the oleosome capsules to maintain the oil in the seeds until required for germination and growth of the plant. Nature also places a protein store house in each seed, called storage proteins, that provide a nitrogen source for the small plant. Oils from various plants are very popular for topical treatments as they help improve skin barrier function, hydration, and conditioning. Oilseed oil extractions typically are run through extruders that crush the seeds under high pressure and high temperatures. Crushing ruptures the oilseed oleosomes to release their oil. Crushing extraction creates a seed cake which still typically contains about 25-30% of the available oil. Usually, the seed cake is further extracted using hexane, a toxic organic solvent. During crushing extraction, the storage proteins are effectively denatured and trapped into the hulls (called meal). The value of the crushed proteins is essentially lost in the extraction process and these valuable components become simple animal feed.

Sustainable Extraction of Oilseed Oleosomes and Proteins If a consumer were to buy oil as found in nature, it would not appear as the clear liquid commonly found on the shelf, but rather would look very much like a creamy emulsion, similar to mayonnaise (see Figure 1). Great efforts have been made in industry to develop sustainable techniques to extract plant oil seed oleosomes.2 The safflower seed is a highly sustainable seed that grows without genetic modification in low water environments. It is an ideal seed for development of highly sustainable oleosomes. It should be noted that other unique seeds like sunflower, almond, hemp, and canola also contain oleosomes and can be extracted using the process described in this article. The process of oleosome extraction begins with the oil seeds. The seeds are washed with water and then passed through a series of gentle grinding steps to create an aqueous seed extract. Temperatures never exceed 60 °C and no toxic organic solvents are employed in the extraction process. Through a series of further decanting and centrifugation steps, highly refined oleosomes, containing less than 2% of residual seed proteins can be made. Such an extraction process creates three plant streams: the oil fraction containing the cleaned and stabilized oleosomes, an aqueous phase, and a small residual solid phase that contains primarily the cellulosic and hemicellulosic materials from the hulls. The aqueous (Continued on page 4)

…Marie Renee Thadal, Coptis Inc.

hat a debut NYSCC Suppliers’ Day made on May 2nd and 3rd in New York City! The 38th edition of Suppliers’ Day unequivocally highlighted one of the proudest moments of the chapter’s tremendous sixty-twoyear history. The move to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center was bold. But beyond the glass, the show delivered nearly 9,000 attendees from almost 60 countries seeking the latest in innovation in raw materials from 435 exhibiting companies. The show occupied a massive 80,000 square feet of contiguous space, hailing it a successful event by the Javits Center and cosmetic industry professionals. Board and committee members did not stop to rest. Initiatives for around the year strategic planning and robust marketing campaign have been put in place. In addition, if you are a supplier and have not reserved space for 2018, do so ASAP! Now that the 2017 NYSCC Suppliers’ Day high has subsided, we turn our attention to the chapter’s mission and long term strategic planning. Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, we are extending the NYSCC’s reach globally and around the nation to promote cosmetic science. We hope you saw us on Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland® on Fox Business Network and Bloomberg. If you missed it, you can go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0FYigmTYuU to see the entire video. The NYSCC sponsored the 91st annual meeting of the American Chemical Society Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry, which highlighted the latest scientific advances in colloid and surface science. The program was held at The City College of New York on July 9-12, 2017. Two NYSCC delegates, Elizabeth Kaufman, Ph.D. and Giorgio Dell’Acqua, Ph.D. were on hand as moderator and representative for the NYSCC sponsored session on “Colloids and Surface Science in Medicine and Personal Care Products: Advances in Colloidal Systems for Personal Care”. Hani Fares, Ph.D. of Ashland Specialty Ingredients, was a presenter of “Emulsions and Foams in Personal Care Applications”. A Scientific Committee was recently launched and charged with developing content for communication on cosmetic science, innovation, supply chain, product and ingredient development, and other relevant topics for our industry. The Scientific Committee will work very close with the various chairs to advise and coordinate efforts. It will also reach out to the general public outside our industry with the goal to divulge scientifically proven information and reduce misinformation on cosmetics and cosmetic science. Serving as chair is Giorgio Dell’Acqua, Ph.D. A NYSCC Sponsorship Committee was formed to provide additional education and scientific discovery for attendees at the monthly events. Suppliers have a new channel to present their technologies based on the topic of the month. Daphne Benderly, Ph.D. of Presperse will chair this committee. The NYSCC sponsored the Mid-Atlantic SCC to launch their first Transformation Live Virtual webinar that took place on June 21, 2017, which was held simultaneously at Rutgers University, The University of Delaware, and Virginia Commonwealth University. It was also available remotely to the membership. Congratulations to Mark Chandler and team on bringing this format to the society this year. The NYSCC sponsored the ICMAD City Awards held at Cosmoprof Las Vegas on June 10, 2017. As a Partner Sponsor, the NYSCC Suppliers’ Day logo was featured on all on-site materials and an advertisement announcing 2018 event dates appeared in the program distributed to all in attendance. This partnership will allow us to have a voice to the ICMAD membership as we move to 2018 Suppliers’ Day. The partnership will be highlighted with ICMAD’s presence at 2018 Suppliers’ Day—details are being finalized. In the meantime, NYSCC Program and Special Event Chairs are zealously working to close out the year with a bang. We look forward to seeing you at our other events and activities. • Join us for a fun day at the 24th Annual NYSCC Golf Outing at Crystal Springs Resort on July 26th. • #BeyondTheBrief and the 2017 NYSCC Culinary Event. You can attend both events on September 6th at a discounted price. • Innovation in Textured Hair Care to be held October 12, 2017. • Will there be a charity event in December this year? To find out, stay tuned! For registration information, browse the events page at https://nyscc.org/events.

NYSCC Suppliers’ Day Succeeds in New York Strong Attendance and New Javits Center Location Provides Dynamic Global Ingredients Marketplace

Innovation Comes Naturally

T

he New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists 38th Annual Suppliers’ Day event had a successful debut at its new location, Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City on May 2-3, 2017. The 8,752 attendees came from 27 countries around the world, making the 2017 Suppliers’ Day the largest event to date. “With the support of the NYSCC Board and the Show Committee’s hard work, this year’s Suppliers’ Day in New York was North America’s number one global event for the cosmetics and personal care industries,” said Marie Thadal, Chair of the NYSCC, further stating, “Creating this strong foothold in New York has given the NYSCC tremendous momentum to continue its mission of advancing cosmetic science.” The New York location and the Javits Center as a venue were praised by many exhibitors. “NYSCC Suppliers’ Day was one of the best shows for Lubrizol. We were able to make a strong impact with our new products and booth, and it was crowded the entire time,” said Nicholas Galioto, Trade Show Manager, Lubrizol. In addition to an exhibitor floor that featured 435 exhibiting companies, a French Pavilion, and Innovations Alley, Suppliers’ Day also boasted new educational programs and special events. The event kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included performers from the Broadway musical War Paint, Angel Reda and Erik Liberman, as well as past NYSCC presidents. The Future Chemists Workshops hosted 48 students from 11 universities, including Rutgers University, Seton Hall University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Kean University, Long Island University, and Rowan University, who competed in mini-challenges for the best formulation. Discover Sustainability highlighted the strides that are being made to becoming a more “green” industry. This one-day program featured short, educational sessions highlighting sustainability on a global scale. The Digital Age of Beauty, was a two-day educational forum, provided timely information and demonstrations on key strategies and technologies that are driving new product development and speed to market. The NYSCC Awards Night Party took place on Tuesday, May 2nd at Stage 48 and Expanscience received an award for Passioline, a distinct raw material that was recently launched. The focus and celebration of “green” supports the sustainability efforts of the NYSCC. Plans are already underway for the 2018 NYSCC Suppliers’ Day taking place May 15-16 again at the Javits Center. “More then 80% of the floor space is already sold. We encourage exhibitors who have not resigned to do so, and welcome new volunteers and feedback on how to make the 2018 event even better,” said Cathy Piterski, Chair-Elect, NYSCC.

phase contains the oilseed storage proteins. In fact, storage proteins isolated from safflower seeds are commercially available in the personal care industry [e.g., Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed extract].

Pictorial summary of an oilseed isolation processes and individual product streams including storage proteins, defatted/low protein meal, and oleosomes (sunflower, safflower, and almond oleosomes).

Commercial Cosmetic Uses of Oleosomes Oleosomes are finding uses in personal care where they function as natural emulsifiers, humectants, conditioning agents, and barrier improving ingredients. Commercial products containing safflower oleosomes [Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oleosomes] can easily be found. Importantly, because they are typically made from non-GMO sourced seeds, and are naturally isolated, they are popularly found in products requiring gentleness, such as baby and children’s sun care formulations. Safflower oleosomes contain measureable amounts of natural vitamin E, and oils entrained within intact oleosomes are more stable against rancidity and oxidation. Oil-based actives can be loaded into the oleosomes, further enhancing their benefits. A new oleosome-based ingredient [Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oleosomes (and) Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seedcake extract] has been developed that has clinically demonstrated benefits for improving the effectiveness of organic sunscreens. In clinical studies, it was found that loading two sunscreen actives, avobenzone and ethylhexylmethoxycinnamate, into the product above provides formulations in which the active sunscreen agents can be reduced by nearly 80%. The graph in Figure 2 shows the amount of active sunscreen required to attain an SPF of 30 (measured clinically on 10 humans) versus two known commercial products currently on the Percentage of suncare active levels of an oleosome suncare formulation containing two well-known actives, clinically tested at market. The reduction in active use while still SPF 30 on 10 people, and compared to two commercial suncare maintaining sunscreen benefits is dramatic. products found on the market that make similar SPF 30 claims.

Conclusion Highly sustainable oil seed extraction technologies that create unique ingredients and find use in personal care are now available. By extracting the oil seeds using only water and mechanical processes, one can create multiple plant streams of oleosomes and seed proteins that are unique and offer new and exciting opportunities for continued formulation developments. Ingredients based on this technology can lead to significant reductions in the use of sunscreen actives, while maintaining key SPF protection parameters. This step change in sun care ingredients will likely continue to spur new innovations for consumers in sun care protection.

Shaping the Future through Emotions: Macro Trends and Future Insights that will be Influencing the Cosmetic Industry in the Years to Come

T

– Emma Fric, Research and Future Insights Director at Peclers Paris

he daughter of an interior designer and an art historian whose career revolved around luxury, first at Vuitton and then at the Comité Colbert, Emma Fric is an expert in bringing together diverse environments as her professional career demonstrates. After her initial training in law, motivated by her interest in understanding the rules that govern societies, Emma discovered, when studying at CELSA, communication techniques and semiotics, the later becoming her true passion. To apply its principles and better understand what makes society tick, she moved to Asia and then to London, where, in 1993, she was hired by the branding and design agency Cato Consulting Group, which she ran as Managing Director from 1996 to 2000, working for International clients such as Nissan, Philip Morris, UDV, Heineken, Warner Bros Studios Stores, Safeway, Asda, and British American Tobacco. In 2000, she looked to regain her independence and worked as a freelancer for BAT and Diageo. Two years later, back in France, she demonstrated her talents as Strategic Planning Manager at Brand DNA up to 2006 (Agnès b, Comité Colbert, Philip Morris, Rémy Martin, Apsys, the Diamond Trading Company, and Escada). From 2006 to 2017 she returned to freelancing for Omega, BAT, and Beauté Prestige International in Europe and the U.S. Emma became a member of the Peclers Paris team in 2007, first as Development and Client Strategy Manager, then as head of the Department of Research and Future Insight. In charge of the Futur(s) trend book, she recruited a team to identify the emerging signals that will shape tomorrow’s world, and help clients analyze trends and develop distinctive directions, guided by her motto, which is to “rehumanize brands”. A woman of strong convictions, Emma has expertly paired her ability to anticipate and synthesize key evolutions in our society with the Peclers Paris methodology, validated and perfected over the past 40 years. _____________________________________________

Bringing Trends to Life through Colors and Inspirational Sensorial Creative Territories – Dominique Assénat, Head of Colors, Beauty, and Accessories at Peclers Paris

W

ith a Bachelor’s degree in English and a strong inclination for movies, film imagery, and adaptation, Dominique Assénat began her career in Los Angeles. Spurred by the American entrepreneurial spirit and endowed with a fine sense of creativity, she launched a highly successful collection of handbags. For over a year, Dominique adopted the “made in the USA” business model, an experience which infuses her with an unfailing fondness for the country and its business acumen, sharpening her knowledge of how markets work. She returned to Paris in the early 1980s to expand her leather goods collection, which is sold at Kashiyama, Victoire, etc. Looking for new experiences that involved teamwork and sharing expertise, she decided to work for a key designer of the period, Anne-Marie Beretta, where she refined her love of fabrics and colors. Recruited in 1987 by the Fashion Director at that time, Dominique began working for Peclers Paris as the head of the Textile and Accessories department. She spent many years providing her prospective insight to the agency’s two main departments: Colors and Fabrics. Now in charge of the Colors, Beauty, and Accessories Department, Dominique also heads one of the Peclers Paris fundamentals: The Colors Trend Book. Her creative vision is essential to this task, which involves the fine-tuning of 45 exclusive, specially crafted colors, with her team, every season, laying the foundations for all the agency’s publications. Her broad vision across all markets and uncanny ability for abstraction have made her a shrewd observer of the evolution of international markets and how they interact (the emergence of Asian markets and strong demand for color from China have had a major influence on European and American designers).

ith 90 percent of consumers’ mobile time being spent in apps, and 26% of beauty and apparel searches originating within mobile apps, it is no wonder retail brands are turning to apps to increase their reach and deepen their engagement with consumers. Augmented Reality is one technology that offers a new way for retail brands to connect with consumers, particularly in the beauty industry. Brands like Sephora, Sally Hansen, and Benefit are using augmented reality and specific technologies, such as face detection, to allow users to try on and buy products virtually, without ever having to apply them to the face. In addition, beauty brands are leveraging this brand new interactive channel to engage with and reach consumers more efficiently and better understand their behaviors. For consumers, augmented reality means the added convenience of being able to learn about and access new products and try on digital looks within minutes, whether it’s at the beauty counter or on their smartphone. Beauty brands and retail stores have taken augmented reality from an innovative idea to an effective marketing tool by harnessing its ability to drive engagement and trial. Creating products that are optimized for digital replication will become the new Beauty 2.0 challenge. In this presentation, Vince Hsu, Director of Business Development for Perfect365, a digital makeup app with over 100 million users, will discuss the new possibilities that augmented reality-based beauty apps create for beauty brands online and retail beauty counters, and how they can avoid “missing the boat” by rethinking digital beauty integration, particularly with the rise in millennial buying power. Following the presentation from Vincent Hsu, a panel made up of a beauty brand, makeup artists, and the Perfect365 Beauty Squad will dive deeper into the following: • The use of technology as a platform in Beauty and Fashion: Augmented Reality, Face Detection, and other technologies to achieve its positive makeup results. • How Perfect365 collaborates with makeup artists and brands to interpret their concept of beauty and apply it in the app. • The future of digital makeup and its impact on the beauty/fashion industry.

The Perfect365 Team panel will include:

Innovation in Textured Hair Care

October 12, 2017 • 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The Grand Summit Hotel, Summit, NJ

T

extured hair is hair that is naturally wavy, curly, or coily rather than straight. Over half of the world’s population has textured hair, and consumers are interested in addressing their hair care needs based on their hair texture or curl pattern and style goal as opposed to their ethnicity. Textured hair types have received increasingly more attention in recent times with companies and stores delivering more product lines and campaigns dedicated to wavy, curly, and coily-haired consumers. This program features a diverse lineup of scientists, media influencers, and a stylist who will educate the audience on the characteristics of textured hair types as well as the habits and practices of consumers with textured hair, some of the key drivers of the growth of this segment, and recent advancements in the study of textured hair.

he New York Chapter of the Society of Cosmetics Chemists (NYSCC) has formed a new Scientific Committee. Members who met for the first time on June 14 to discuss the role of the committee in 2017 and beyond include: Mike Anthonavage (Vantage), Ben Blinder (Gattefossé), Giorgio Dell’Acqua (Dellacqua Consulting), Hani Fares (Ashland), Ying Jia, Elizabeth Kaufman (NYU), Prithwiraj Maitra (Johnson & Johnson), Mohamed Omer (Revlon), Nadine Pernodet (Estée Lauder) and Jackie Wey (Reckitt Benckiser). Dell’Acqua is serving as chair. This diverse group, which brings more than 100 years of experience in varied Giorgio Dell’Acqua categories from all sides of the cosmetics business—academia, supplier, and finished goods—is an inaugural team charged with developing content for communication on cosmetic science, innovation, supply chain, product and ingredient development, and other relevant topics for the industry using the NYSCC’s blog, its official journal (Cosmeticsope), and social media channels. “We will elevate the NYSCC by improving our scientific offering, giving a balanced view of the industry from different angles but with a common strategy, building more strategy behind events and communication, and increasing our network and therefore reaching out more,” states Dell’Acqua. The committee will work very closely with the editorial board of Cosmetiscope and NYSCC chairs for PR, social media, and events to coordinate the communication effort. According to Marie Thadal of Coptis, 2017 NYSCC Chair, the genesis of this new committee was “our desire to provide quality programs to our members.” She further states, “We don’t want to proceed with business as usual. Going forward, we want to ensure that we present in our monthly programs, at Suppliers’ Day, and in publications, content that is on target, relevant— and without a doubt—necessary for our members to be successful in their current roles.” The new committee will also use news outlets, blogs, and magazines to reach consumers and the general public outside the industry to divulge scientifically proven information and reduce the misinformation on cosmetics and cosmetic science. Further, the group will reach out to academia to invite researchers at colleges and universities to speak at NYSCC events and to contribute as advisors on specific topics. Over the course of the meeting, it was apparent that the team members have many great ideas, and the NYSCC’s constituents, as well as the cosmetics industry at large, will benefit from the collective efforts of this new board moving forward.

Monthly Meeting Group Discount The NYSCC is offering a group discount of 15% to companies who send 5 or more employees to a monthly meeting. All five employees would need to be registered at the same time to receive the discount. Once purchased, registrations are non-refundable.

Letter from a Volunteer Dear Fellow Members,

I

t gives me immense pleasure to reach out to each of you. At the NYSCC we promise to deliver continuing education with an aim to support professionals in the Cosmetics and Toiletries Industry. We are a non-profit organization with an uncompromising vision to establish a platform that supports and nourishes students, job seekers, and experienced personnel. We are continuously striving to organize social events, educational symposiums, and our very popular Suppliers’ Day event. Mitisha Mehta You can network and learn, just like I did, and then decide to take it one step further. To relate my personal experience, I came from India on an international visa to pursue my Master’s degree in Cosmetic Science. Very soon it dawned on me, that I would need a job, mentor, and few acquaintances to understand the industry better. My professor at that time suggested that I become a member of the NYSCC and volunteer as a member of its board—so I did. I leaped in with all my vigor to organize the Open Innovation – The Business of Cosmetics event in March 2017 with chair Mohamed Omer. It turned out to be a great success. This experience helped me define my professional conduct, inspired me to network, and identify that I could perhaps even lead an entire event, given the right opportunity. I just did not know it yet. The New York SCC is a terrific organization that offers significant opportunities for professional advancement. I wish to personally invite you to this exciting journey where we can laugh and learn together. Give us a very small portion of your time, and I assure you, it will be a win-win venture.
