The Ashland solvers have developed a range of formulations to prevent and treat blemishes as well as soothe, moisturize and nourish skin with natural and natural-derived ingredients. The formulations optimize the delivery and deposition of actives; address formulating challenges: improve sensorial textures and provide additional skin benefits.
