The Skincare team visited Albatross Social Rehabilitation Center on the Children's Day to congratulate the children who are sponsored by the company. Twenty two children at the age of 4 to 14 took part in the celebration.
To add something new to the cultural leisure of the kids and get to know them better, the Skincare team came up with a giant board game in the style of Ice Age. The kids painted and drew the characters from the famous animation movie, climbed the enchanted vines, waded a magical river, and helped Skincare plant flowers on the backyard of the Albatross Center.
"Due to this format we were able to understand the children better, and the kids were less embarrassed. Both the kids and the educators liked our Ice Age idea, which means, we will bring more of such activities!", Skincare commented on the celebration.
After the game, the Albatross children were in for another surprise: a penguin with a box of ice cream and useful presents: hoops, skipping rods, gymnastic mats and benches for safe and regular sports.
Albatross is a social and rehabilitation center located in Stupino for underage children in difficult circumstances. Skincare has been taking care of the children's center since 2014.
The innovative Shell Eco Marathon 2017 was held in London over the period 25-28 May. Two Skincare teams took part in the competitions.
The Shell Marathon is the first international race to use energy-efficient home-made vehicles. The competition was organised by two students from engineering and technical colleges and universities to highlight the potential of the young generation and efforts to create ecologically friendly technology. The Marathon was held in various countries on three different continents: America, Asia and Europe. This year's marathon venues were Detroit, Singapore and London.
Over 500 teams from many different countries participated in the British race. Among these were two teams from Skincare. These were the Apollo Team, engineering students from the International School of the Hague (ISH), and participants from the school of modern technology Inholland Innovation Studio (also of The Hague, Netherlands).
The teams entered models of high-tech, ecologically friendly vehicles in the race. The participants carried out the planning and construction works and made their choice of models independently. The key task was to cover the highest number of kilometres on just one litre of fuel.
The Skincare employees, as well as sponsorship, also helped the teams resolve questions of coordination, organised a fan-zone for their supports and provided the participants with means of protecting their skin as they worked with the vehicles and spent long periods in the open air exposed to the effects of wind and sun. The young engineers used Skincare's eco-friendly ProGreen products throughout the marathon: a protective cream before starting the technical works and a restorative cream for sitting behind the wheel, as well as a purifier to remove engine oil and other persistent forms of dirt from their skin.
"Thank you to our teams for the inspiration and the new ideas! We are now planning to support the younger generation further in its efforts to develop environmentally friendly technology. We eagerly await the next series of Shell Eco-Marathons and are delighted to take on the tasks necessary for the potential of budding scientific experts to develop", said a Skincare employee who took part in the race.
The Shell Eco-Marathon started in London 25th of May. Company Skincare became sponsored two teams.
The biggest race of self-made energy-efficient vehicles currently takes place in London. The sponsor of two participants - Apollo team Delft and Silverback Engineering - is Skincare company.
Shell Eco-Marathon supports promotion of environmentally sustainable modern and clean technologies and scientific potential of younger generation. Skincare advocates eco-developments too. Company produced a complex of dermatological PPE which has received an international quality certificate EcoCert two years ago. Besides Skincare spends 1% of revenue of brandline Riza to social projects.
Shell’ race is a unique competition that challenges student teams around the world to create the ultimate energy-efficient vehicle. A winner should travel the greatest distance having spent the least amount of energy. Eco-Marathon 2017 railes 500 teams of participants from 50 countries. Apollo team Delft and Silverback Engineering that are sponsored by Skincare are among them. The first team - Apollo - is presented by young engineers who study at Inholland Innovation Studio in Delft town. Silverback Engineering is a group of students at The International School of The Hague.
“Both teams are well-prepared to the marathon. They have built fuel-efficient car from the ground up and tried to combine creative design and special form of racing vehicle. Models have been ably tested, so we have no doubt in their success. Wish best of luck to teams!” - Skincare company said.
SAPE’s VIII International Industrial Safety and Labor Protection exhibition was held in Sochi from 11-14th April. 150 Russian and foreign companies presented new products and the latest technologies from their range of individual protection products. Skincare, international manufacturer and exporter, presented innovations in the dermatological protection market.
Skincare is a regular exhibitor at the SAPE exposition, where the company usually announces both new product releases and improvements to existing products. This year, Skincare presented two new brands – Office Bloom, a range created especially for offices, and FoodPro, a solution for the food industry. Changes to popular brands such as Riza, ProGreen, Ruskin and Defense Line were also announced. A good example of this is the Defense Line range, where Skincare specialists improved the formula by removing silicon and parabens from the product ingredients.
Exciting updates to the Riza range were also announced. RizaDerm Inglove Defense, a new cream for use with gloves, was added to the line. This product was created following scientific discoveries made in Skincare’s laboratory. This innovative product is designed to protect the skin of the hands when working in gloves for extended periods of time. It controls sweating, improves microcirculation and prevents the reproduction of bacteria. Not only were guests of SAPE 2017 impressed with Skincare’s new developments, they were also appreciated by other exhibitors as well. Skincare had invited Sergei Volkov, the world’s first second-generation cosmonaut, to the exhibition. As part of the business program, Volkov gave information about space innovations and the individual safety products used by Roscosmos employees. The astronaut also made a speech at the round table, where he commented on the importance of the "RizaDerm Inglove Defense" discovery from the perspective of the space industry.
SAPE 2017 was visited by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Olga Golodets, and the Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation, Andrei Cherezov. Guests praised the Skincare stand and showed great interest in the company's developments. Skincare’s CEO, Dmitry Erokhin, spent some time talking to guests, telling them about new brands Office Bloom and FoodPro, about his experience entering foreign markets and about the peculiarities of the skin protection and care sector in other countries. For example, product research in China showed the superiority of Skincare products over foreign competitors - something that is very important not only for the company but for Russian manufacturing as a whole.
At Skincare’s invitation, SAPE 2017 was visited by industrial safety specialists from the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Germany, South Africa and Portugal. The company was also introduced to representatives from China, Singapore and South Korea. Foreign colleagues praised the size of the exhibition and showed real interest in products manufactured in Russia.
As in previous years, Skincare organised an interactive program at SAPE. This year, it was a charity event for children from the orphanage in Sochi. Cosmonaut Sergei Volkov also participated in the event, where he told kids about the life of an astronaut and handed out gifts from Skincare: cosmic blasters and “space food” in tubes.
On April 12 at the international exhibition SAPE-2017, a charity event for children from boarding school will be held with the participation of cosmonaut Sergey Volkov.
The Skincare Company runs interactive events in the SAPE framework annually. This year we proposed to connect these two spheres which are crucial for the country: the field of space and the society by organizing a social program.
On April 12 at 12:00, the exhibition will be visited by a special guest – the world's first cosmonaut in the second generation Sergey Volkov. In the framework of the business program, he will comment on the latest developments and talk about space innovation, and then he will take part in the charity event organized for children from boarding school.
By 14:00, children from the center under patronage of Skincare will come on exhibition at our invitation. The children will enjoy an interplanetary VR quest, tasting space food and cosmonaut Sergey Volkov at our stand. The guest will tell them about cosmonaut's life: on the Earth and beyond.
We would like to thank Etalon and Roscosmos for support and assistance in the organization of this event, and a special thanks to Sergey Volkov for the fact that he agreed to come to the meeting with the children on April 12, in such an important holiday for a cosmonaut. The children are really looking forward to this experience and are already preparing gifts for Sergey.

Skincare has launched RizaDerm® Inglove.Protection - a brand new product to protect the skin while working in gloves.
Wearing gloves causes the hand to sweat, which in turn causes swelling of the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin, weakening cell structure, and increasing sensitivity and permeability. This leads to loss of elasticity and premature aging of the skin.
With RizaDerm® Inglove.Protection, Skincare’s laboratory has created a triple-action product that improves skin respiration, reduces sweating and provides a bacteriostatic effect. Its antiperspirant complex harnesses the properties of wood horsetail and sage to maintain the natural slightly acidic skin pH. Caffeine and zerumbet ginger extract help to improve microcirculation in tissues and activate metabolic processes in the blood vessel walls.
The efficacy of the product has been proven in clinical trials.
In February, Skincare took part in Ski Run 6250, organized by the Lifeline Foundation.
The annual Ski Run 6250 was held in the Planernaya Sport Centre on 19th February. As always, Skincare employees took part in the race to support the event.
All participants received commemorative medals, warm headbands including the race logo and souvenirs from Skincare, which is the event organizer's official partner.
The funds raised by the event will be donated to help 14 year old Maria Kuznetsova, who needs to haveexpensive spinal surgery.
Alisa Dvornikova, head of Skincare’s HR Department, gave a presentation on the impact of the corporate club system on company business processes at the IC Practice forum.
Hobby clubs, such as dancing, volleyball, art, and cinema, help to improve corporate communication within an organisation. Skincare currently has seven such clubs.
According to Alisa, having hobby clubs “contributes to the development of team spirit and creates an environment where leadership qualities can be demonstrated. We can observe each other in an informal setting and identify potential leaders.”
The all-Russian IC Practice Conference took place in the Sap Lab Research Centre (Moscow) on 16th February. Over the course of the entire day, HR specialists discussed various models of intra-corporate communication.
