LAB entering the cosmetics sector – Interview

Cosmetics and personal care products must be both effective as well as dermatologically and environmentally harmless. For this reason, LAB | Laboratorio Analítico Bioclínico has extended its analytical services to this sector, which is currently en vogue.

Mª Elena Hernández (Technical Director and Manager of LAB) and Rosario Santiago (Head of the Chromatography Department), give an account of the strong commitment of the laboratory to the cosmetics sector, the methods developed to date and its expansion plans.

Q. Most of LAB’s analytical services are focused on the food, agriculture and environmental sector, a sector with high demand in Almeria and in Andalusia in general. Why the cosmetics sector?

A. Mª Elena Hernández: Headquartered in Almería, with a branch office in Huelva (a strategic location to cover the demand in the red fruit sector), our sales network covers the entire national territory. In addition, as we are part of the Tentamus Group, we also work internationally, collaborating with other laboratories of the Group.

In fact, the development of the new method in the cosmetics sector was inspired by the request of an international customer. We were very excited to meet this demand, to implement the new method in the laboratory and to offer it to our customers eventually (national and international).

Q. What are the main methods of analysis that have been carried out since then in this sector? What technology does the laboratory use to ensure the reliability of the results?

A. Rosario Santiago: Methylchlorothiazolinone (MCI) and methylisothiazolinone (MI) are heterocyclic compounds used as preservatives in cosmetics and industrial products with biocidal activity.

The laboratory has established a new chromatographic method using cutting-edge UPLC-MS/MS (liquid chromatography coupled to triple quadrupole mass spectrometry) to detect and quantify these substances.

This sophisticated equipment has allowed us to develop a chromatographic method with a limit of quantification* of 0.5 mg/kg and a limit of detection** of 0.05 mg/kg. Undoubtedly, a very sensitive method! What’s more, sample handling is reduced to a minimum.

Q. What are the main risks of the use of these ‚preservatives‘ for consumer health?

A. Rosario Santiago: The abuse of these substances in cosmetic products (gels, shampoos, creams…) can cause skin sensitization and cause allergic dermatological diseases, such as contact eczema.

Their presence in cosmetics is studied and regulated because they are considered to cause allergic reactions in about two to four percent of patients undergoing epicutaneous tests. These preservatives can be found in wet wipes (make-up remover wipes, baby wipes, intimate hygiene wipes, toiletries, etc.), hand soaps, shampoos, moisturizers, hand creams, cleaning products (dishwashers, glass ceramic cleaners), paints, varnishes and many more. Even if there is no allergic reaction, it may develop over time by continuous use of these products.

The European Commission banned the use of these compounds in non-rinse products such as body creams in 2015. At LAB we focus on EU Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, which guarantees consumer safety in the use of this type of product.

Q. Obviously LAB is very open to the development of new methods linked to the cosmetics sector? How about other areas?

A. Rosario Santiago: LAB has always been working very closely with clients in the development of R&D projects. We are passionate about challenges and our capacity to develop multiple chromatographic methods to meet our clients’ demand is definitely not limited to the cosmetic sector but extendible to other areas of interest.

We are very proud to have developed and implemented this new method which will lead to the expansion of the laboratory into a new market area.

Q. LAB is a laboratory that has grown both in terms of human resources and scope of analytical services since its creation in 2003. How does your vision for LAB’s future look like?

A. Mª Elena Hernández: We will further consolidate LAB as reference laboratory in organic contaminant analysis and analysis of environmental and agro-food samples both at national as well as international level.

Furthermore, LAB’s objective is striving to open new lines of business by developing new methods in the sectors in which we currently work and additionally in further sectors, tailored to the demand of our clients.

*Limit of quantification: minimum quantity of a component present in the sample that can be quantified under the experimental conditions described for that method, with adequate accuracy and precision.

**Detection limit: refers to the minimum amount/concentration of a substance that can be reliably detected by a given analytical method.

EUROSOLAR calls for regenerative emergency actions to limit climate catastrophe

In the 30 years since the founding of EUROSOLAR, many extraordinary successes and advances in the proliferation of renewable energy have been made: the powerful feed-in tariffs; the diffusion of 100 % renewable buildings; communities and regions, the broad march of solar and wind into many countries’ power mixes; the revolution of national policies to embrace energy transitions and the rise of renewable energy investment – which has long become the dominant mode in annual capital expenditures in new power generation capacity worldwide.

However, due to political resistance and misinformation the nightmare of fossil fuel dependence continues to grow unabatedly, building up a more ominously looming legacy every day. The long resistance, delay and postponement by governments and industries has had dire and long predicted consequences, building up rising greenhouse gas concentrations that lie far above a climate stable level.

There is mounting evidence that global warming effects as largely triggered by fossil emissions may already be beyond the kind of control implied in standard emissions reduction and renewable energy targets. The spectre of abrupt climate change with dramatic consequences for the human species and its ability to reliably secure food supplies is now clearly manifest – and yet still largely ignored by policy makers and media outlets alike. Most IPCC declarations still propagate misleading linear climate prognoses, while the non-linear earth systems responses and exponential nature of concentrations growth have long been observed and known, over the entire duration of IPCC and UNFCCC workings.

We may have long passed the boundary of no return, as a series of climate tipping points are being reached. We witness large-scale Arctic and Siberian methane releases triggered in melting permafrost; ocean warming has gone so far that the seas will begin to expel rather than absorb heat as well as CO2; or the disappearance of polar sea ice that has long created Arctic heat waves in the wake of lowered albedo. Other powerful climate feedback mechanisms include the disruption of Asian monsoon rains, or the escalation of global forest dieback. More than 15 climate tipping point mechanisms are at risk of being triggered, or have already been activated.

As a consequence sudden climate change even beyond the scale and duration of the historically cyclical Dansgaard-Oeschger or Bond events may be impending. Like these past events, this would be a period of rapid climate shifts in the wake of gradual build-up of GHG concentrations in the atmosphere – but now unprecedentedly boosted by the nearly explosive burst of fossil fuel combustion based GHG release. Without immediate and far-reaching measures, it is not impossible that global temperatures could spike by ten degrees Celsius or more within a few decades.

This is no time for denial or resignation but for massive and unwavering action. EUROSOLAR calls for a regenerative emergency action plan, entirely unprecedented in extent and speed. These are not normal times; extraordinary measures have to be taken:

1 Massive and immediate mobilization of renewable energy systems locally, nationally and globally, to provide 100 % of thermal, electric and transport energy from renewable sources as quickly as possible;

2 Emergency ending of all coal mining and coal burning worldwide;

3 Emergency pursuit of petroleum reduction and complete replacement throughout all local, national and world economies;

4 Drastic reduction of meat in global consumption, and replacing it with a plant based diet, to end the wholesale destruction of emissions managing ecosystems by resource-intensive and inefficient meat production;

5 Extraction of CO2 from the atmosphere now oversaturated with greenhouse gas, by

  • massive afforestation and wetland regeneration programs on all continents, and an immediate stop to the clearing of rainforests
  • raising of organic humus content in urban parkland and agricultural soils
  • replacement of industrial agriculture with organic farming practices
  • replacement of organic waste combustion through composting and carbonization, to help reduce emissions and enhance biological carbon sequestration in soil
  • rapid expansion of industrial-scale CO2 extraction from the atmosphere and its long-term embedding in carbon material

6 Decommissioning of all nuclear power plants and termination of new construction programs. Nuclear power delivers only a few percent in global final energy supply, while posing enormous human health, environmental, security and economic risks, even without being compromised by climate risks in safe operation and maintenance. Nuclear power absorbs an enormous amount of funding away from vital renewable energy infrastructures.

EUROSOLAR calls for the immediate embrace of these measures, in public policy, national and international action agendas, and through local and regional voluntary action.

SMA partners with SolarCoin Foundation and SolarLux

SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) will examine the possibilities to capitalize on the use of the SolarCoin reward – for itself and its customers. To this end, SMA has partnered with the Hong Kong based startup SolarLux to evaluate the feasibility of onboarding a large number of PV Plant owners into the SolarCoin ecosystem via the world’s largest solar energy monitoring platform, SMA’s Sunny Portal.

“SolarCoin is one of the most interesting projects in the block chain space, which SMA has followed for quite some time,” explained Dr. Matthias Victor, Head of Technology Center & Services at SMA. “We are currently assessing what added value a direct access to SolarCoin via the Sunny Portal may bring to our customers.”

The mission of SolarCoin Foundation is to accelerate the global energy transition by rewarding solar producers with SolarCoin, the first energy-referenced currency. SolarCoin is gaining traction within the industry as an additional incentive for solar energy producers. The low carbon blockchain token (SLR) is exclusively granted for free to solar energy producers at the rate of one SolarCoin for one megawatt hour of solar power generated. SolarCoin provides cash value and as a solar currency helps reduce solar financing costs globally.

Together with SMA, SolarLux, a startup specialized in helping the solar industry to make use of the opportunities SolarCoin offers, is exploring how SolarCoin can best be integrated into SMA’s popular Sunny Portal. Claiming SolarCoins could become easy for more than 300,000 Sunny Portal monitored plants and likely increase both the Sunny Portal and SolarCoin digital currency user bases significantly. If the ongoing proof-of-concept shows enough potential for SMA it could be rolled out to all Sunny Portal customers equipped with suitable SMA communication technology.

“We are excited to see one of the most prestigious manufacturers in the solar industry recognize the value of SolarCoin,” said Nick Gogerty, Co-Founder of SolarCoin. “It is our goal to add value to the global solar industry. We are watching the industry explore new uses of the publicly open SolarCoin blockchain technology every day.” SMA believes that if the proof-of-concept succeeds it could see multiple innovative ways to create value for its customers.

OPVIUS presents first self-tending vertical garden

The winners of the 2017 DGNB (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen) Sustainability Challenge – BOXOM GmbH and OPVIUS GmbH – teamed up after the competition to establish an innovative joint project in vertical gardening. The final product? A zero-maintenance façade garden capable of looking after itself using solar power.Vertical gardens on exterior walls and façades are an urban solution to increase the sustainability of our city landscapes. Having met during the 2017 DGNB Sustainability Challenge, the experts at BOXOM GmbH and OPVIUS GmbH teamed up to carry out a joint project to attractively combine a façade garden and printed organic photovoltaics (OPV). The two companies developed a lightweight façade garden capable of tending itself based on sophisticated watering and system technology. OPVIUS’ semi-transparent OPV modules power the BOXOM façade system, which then supplies the integrated plants with the right amount of water and nutrients needed for growth.

BOXOM’s mission is not just to create vertical gardens, but also to develop façade use for sustainable concepts. The light weight and semi-transparency of the organic photovoltaics (OPV) technology makes it an ideal combination option for vertical gardens. Not only do the OPV modules generate a power supply, they also provide shade for the plants, and protect them from drying out. Plants on the south-facing sides in particular are at risk of getting too much sun, and this is where the OPV modules can help.

The pre-tensioned structure, consisting of steel ropes made by Carl Stahl GmbH, serves as the basis for integrating the OPV modules and plants. The elevated plant cords and the OPV modules are both affixed to these vertically tensioned steel ropes. This system is available as a finished product, and can transform unused vertical façades into attractive, sustainable gardens. The combination of OPV and vertical garden unlocks completely new façade solutions – for both restored and new buildings.

The first OPV vertical garden is currently being presented at a technically innovative “Tiny House” created by Merck KGaA. In addition to the OPV, other highly developed Merck materials and products are also integrated into the Tiny House’s many different functions, such as voice control, electrochromic windows, and flat OLED TVs.

Niklas Weisel, Managing Director of BOXOM GmbH, had this to say: “Botanic Horizon vertical gardens, using OPVIUS OPV modules, are a safe, easy way of creating gardens anywhere and fulfilling your passion for gardening even in a small space.” Hermann Issa, Senior Director Business Development & Sales at OPVIUS GmbH, adds that “particularly in view of discussions surrounding fine dust and nitric oxide, the self-tending plant system can play an important part in helping with air purity and the wellbeing of local residents in densely built-up inner cities. BOXOM GmbH, with its Botanic Horizon products, and OPVIUS GmbH, with its printed OPV technology, are making an energy-neutral contribution to improving urban climate here.”




BOXOM was founded in Saxony’s Ore Mountains in 2015, and develops and sells complete vertical-garden solutions for façades, interiors (such as offices, canteens, kitchens and living areas), and greenhouses under the Botanic Horizon brand (see and plant cords, a product from the “Plant technology based on textile cords” series”). The systems developed may be installed in walls and ceilings of new buildings or as a retrofit on existing buildings.

The completely unique, patented vertical plant technology based on textile cords enables a wide range of applications which, through the use of supplementary vertical technologies like photovoltaics, solar heat, heat pumps and much more, make life more convenient and comfortable.
