The dynamic world of the cosmetics industry is a fascinating playing field where culture, personal expression and technological advancement lead to an ever-evolving array of trends. Barbiecore, gender fluidity, K-pop, K-drama and hybrid cosmetics are clearly more than just short-lived phenomena. They symbolize a decisive change in the way we perceive and express ourselves. This change goes far beyond the purely aesthetic and affects us on a deep, personal level.
The topical therapy approach is the first choice for skin diseases. However, in order to ensure the intended therapeutic success, the patient’s cooperation is indispensable - especially in the case of chronic diseases. A pleasant skin feeling is the prerequisite for enabling the patient to use creams or ointments in compliance with the prescription. The combination of uncompromisingly high quality and pleasant skin feeling is therefore of decisive importance for the Pharma business unit of IOI Oleo GmbH.
There is a world that remains hidden from most people - the fascinating world of surfaces on a microscopic level. In the "Technical Applications" business unit of IOI Oleo GmbH, we use the latest technologies every day in order to be able to offer our customers the best possible quality and innovation. One of these technologies, which plays a crucial role in our everyday work, is scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
The trend toward DIY cosmetics is growing steadily, as more and more consumers want to know exactly what's in their skin care products. The ability to create homemade creams and lotions, however, has a long learning curve. It takes a lot of trial and error before the result meets one's expectations. That was until now! As we proudly present our product innovation SOFTISAN® MagicPOWDER S, with which soft creams and lotions can be created simply by adding water.
IOI Oleo GmbH enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide as a manufacturer of high-quality, lipid-based additives. In order to ensure that we maintain our standards for the highest quality and to comply with the guideline values of national and international pharmacopoeias, we attach great importance to the selection of the raw materials and suppliers we use as well as state-of-the-art production processes at our locations in Germany. In this context, the peroxide value (PV) can be used as a key indicator of the rancidity of lipids and is used by pharmaceutical companies as an indicator of the quality of their excipients.
