April 17, 14.10 – 14.30, Theatre 2: How to overcome bloom formation in cosmetic formulations. Presented by Staffan Norberg, Global Director of Product Development and Innovation at AAK Personal Care (pictured here).


A fundamental quality parameter in cosmetic formulations is preserving product aesthetics over time and under varying conditions. One particular concern, especially relevant to formulations containing solid ingredients like natural butters, involves the potential occurrence of "bloom" or the emergence of a sandy or grainy texture in skincare and stick applications. Even with meticulous product processing, post-production temperature fluctuations (such as during transportation, storage, and consumer usage) can significantly impact the likelihood of bloom formation. This presentation comprehensively examines the underlying causes of this undesired effect and proposes strategies to mitigate its occurrence and ensure successful formulation outcomes.
