<p>NeoCell kicked off its annual fall campaign with Vitamin Angels, while Croda and Dow Corning introduce new ingredients at industry trade shows.</p>

NeoCell kicked off its annual fall campaign with Vitamin Angels. The goal is to help the non-profit organization with its mission to provide lifesaving and life changing vitamins to children and mothers in need. From Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, NeoCell will donate $0.25 to Vitamin Angels for every product that it ships.

The campaign will include the use of special neck tags on products to promote Vitamin Angels' mission, as well using #GivingIsBeautiful on social media to encourage people to donate to Vitamin Angels directly. NeoCell has also selected Vitamin Angels as its recipient for Giving Tuesday. NeoCell has been able to raise more than $320,000 for Vitamin Angels since the beginning of their partnership. That translates into more than 1.2 million children helped around the world, as the cost for Vitamin Angels to provide critically needed vitamins to a child or mother for a year is $0.25.

“Kicking off our partnership with Vitamin Angels is one of our favorite times of the year," said Jessica Mulligan, NeoCell vice president of sales & marketing. "It's become an important component of our identity as a company, and a key part of our growth; the more success we have, the more we can give back."

Croda, a global specialty chemical company, is will be showcasing its latest product launches and initiatives at SCS Formulate in Coventry, U.K. from Nov. 17 – 18 at booth #405. Among the company’s latest selection of ingredient launches and initiatives are its newest product launch Prolevis™, which provides instant skin smoothing, and its recently launched Cithrol™ 10GTIS for advanced luxury cleansing.

Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, unveiled its new Dow Corning® Topical Ingredients portfolio at California Suppliers’ Day, held Oct. 14 – 15 in Long Beach, California. The new ingredients are designed to help customers drive innovations in topical over-the-counter (OTC) and medical device products that treat scars, stretch marks, acne and other skin conditions, and support their needs for compliance with increasing regulatory requirements. Dow Corning Topical Ingredients are produced at defined manufacturing sites with healthcare oversight, audits and testing to assure quality. This broad portfolio extends beyond traditional fluids to include many other products, from resins to blends and specialty fluids.

The new Dow Corning Topical Ingredients family is currently comprised of 19 solutions that enable a variety of product forms and textures, including gels, sprays, lotions and creams. The portfolio includes blends, resins, a wax and an emulsifier, in addition to multiple fluid and specialty fluid grades. These materials range from non-occlusive to semi-occlusive, offer long-lasting effects and deliver enhanced spreading performance and sensory aesthetics.
