PBL Technology scoops IFSCC Congress showcase prize

PBL Technology, in partnership with the University of East Anglia, won the Innovation in Action Technology Showcase Challenge at the 32nd IFSCC Congress in London.

The prize was awarded for a waterless dry sheet technology developed by Professor Sheng Qi and her team the University of East Anglia.

Norwich-based PBL Technology says its novel no-heat processing technology gently removes up to 98% of water from cosmetic products while preserving the stability of delicate active ingredients and without the need for preservatives.

This, it adds, transforms products into light weight dry sheets that reduce the carbon footprint and costs of transportation.

“With growing numbers of consumers worried about the environmental impacts of water use and packaging waste, pressure is being placed on beauty brands to create sustainable solutions,” said PBL Technology life science business development manager Dr Georgina Pope (pictured, right).

“Our revolutionary processing technology has the potential to transform the global delivery of cosmetic products and help the beauty and personal care industry to develop environmentally- and skin-friendly formulations,” she added.

The Innovation in Action Technology Showcase Challenge is run by Cosmetics Cluster UK and the Society of Cosmetic Scientists.

The other finalists were Ameva; Dr Elsa Jungman; Keratify; MyMicrobiome; NatPad; Oodee; S-Biomedic; Sequential Bio and The Unseen Beauty.
