Big trends for this year:
- Natural soaps
- Stem cells
- There were brands doing human stem cells
Another brand I spoke with was using plant cell culture and molecular switch technology to develop and commercialize natural ingredients.
- Viniferin was one of the key ingredients. It is a natural bio material found in grape flowers. It has potential skin-lightening ingredient that is "reported as being 62 stronger than Vitamin C, 13 times higher than arbutin and higher than Kojic acid"
- Founded by a professor at Dankook University who has studied natural functional bio materials for more than 30 years,
- The company explained that the substances exist in very small amounts in vine stems and flower rice. They manage to secure them in large quantities by combining molecular switch technology and cell culture technology.
- Another key ingredient was Avenanthramide, a group of polyphenol ingredients found in oats. They product the extracts from germinated oats grown in smart farms.

My Favourite New Find -Collagen Pillow Cases

- The brand I spoke to was Puritual
- They are using a FITI certified anti-mite cloth
- Collagen is better for preventing sleep creases on the skin and bed hair compared to nylon, cotton and silk
- It provides moisture care, anti-static care and night care
- Made using zero waste collagen from fish scales and bio polymer combined with a soft Tencel sheet made from sustainable wood sources
- Refillable packaging - airless refillable pumps and containers
