United Arab Emirates is the largest oil exporter.
1/10 of the world`s oil is located on the territory of this country. Oil production accounts for 10% of all Arab countries GDP.
So it makes sense the ADIPEC exhibition and conference – the most important event for oil and gas sector, takes place here.
ADIPEC-2017 – that is more than 700 speakers, 2 000 companies and 100 000 specialists from 125 countries. The exposition took place in Abu Dhabi from 13 to 16 of November. Skincare Innovations B.V., an international expert on skin protection became one of its participants.
Our specialists told ADIPEC guests about rules of skin protection against harmful production factors encountered by employees from oil and gas companies. And they also performed experiments with our RIZA brand - three-stage dermatological PPE complex.
On October, 17 Dusseldorf will host A+A the 35th International trade fair for occupational safety and health at work which has been held at two-year intervals since 1954.
A+A has always – ever since it started in 1954 – helped to raise worldwide awareness of industrial safety and health promotion in the workplace. Traditionally PPE for firу fighters, energy engineers, welders and oil workers make a priority at the exhibition.
Skincare Innovations B.V., an international manufacturer and distributor of professional dermatological PPE and products for skin protection, will participate this large international event on industrial safety and health protection for the second time this year.
At the A+A fair exposition Skincare will unveil:
Skincare experts will carry out experiments at the booth, proving this way the effectiveness of each brand. Moreover, a vending machine will be installed at the booth where every visitor will be able to receive professional dermatological PPE as a gift after having completed an online form. The main goal is to draw attention to the modern means of dermatological PPE.
Fastenal and Skincare companies have already collaborated for two years delivering vending machines with protecting gloves to the industrial enterprises.
In connection with dermatological PPE consumption culture implementation Fastenal devices with protecting creams and cleansing pastes will be soon installed in various industrial companies.
We`re waiting for you in Messe Düsseldorf at our stand №6H78, pavilion 6, from 17 to 20 of October.
This September XXI World Congress On Safety Health At Work took place in Singapore. 100 companies from 89 countries took part in this event. One of the participants was Skincare company.
XXI World Congress on health, hygiene and safety at work finished in Singapore. It became some kind of a platform for information and experience exchange on health and safety at work. It united experts, engineers and employees, representatives of associations and governmental institutions from all over the world. This year specialists from 89 countries visited the Congress.
Event was traditionally divided into two parts: business and exhibitional programs. PPE manufacturers demonstrated modern approaches to the men`s heath and safety at work.
Skincare company presented RIZA brand and Office Bloom – the first professional series for protecting skin in the office.
World Congress On Safety Health At Work takes place every three years in different cities and coutries. Therefore the next Congress will take place in Toronto in 2020.
RIZA DPPE by Skincare company passed one more exam in China. Muczin company- one of the largest automobile retailers estimated this dermatological equipment.
Skincare managers presented three-phase DPPE complex, each stage of which fills up other and prepares the skin to the next step.
RIZA DPPE that is:
RIZA presentation took place in Muczin company, one of the largest retailer of auto components and at the same time auto maintenance workshop chain. Experts highly appreciated represented DPPE and made a purchase decision.
Skincare sales representative signed a contract for long-term cooperation with retailer in Shanghai.
The first supply of batch lot has already been implemented. And Muczin in its turn recommended Skincare DPPE to Mercedes dealer centre. Since then our Russian creams are used in the automobile dealerships of German brand.
For sure all of us saw a special category of goods in the shop which called barrier creams. They are to protect skin during the contact with various negative factors. According to the instruction creams are applied on the skin before compatibility with aggressive substances when other dermatological means are applied after the contact in order to regenerate and moisturize epidermis.
Barrier creams are different. Ones save us from unsalutary influence of physical, weather factors – sun, wind, frost. Manufactures of these means offer creams with SPF from 15 up to 80 as a rule, and also means for freeze burn and chapping prevention.
Other creams protect from a wide range of pollutions, that`s why they are recommended for all people working with their hands. Application field of such equipment varies from professional activity up to household or summer cottage work.
The second category divides into two groups: hydrophobic and hydrophilous. Let`s have a closer look at these PPE and what type you need.
In translation from Ancient Greek Hydrophilia means “love for water”. Therefore, such a tag on product packing speaks about its property to absorb and hold moisture. Hydrophilic means are intended for protection against influence of glues, oils, paints, soot, graphite and other insoluble substances in water.
Usage of such a cream doesn`t mean that any dirt won`t stick to you. But it guarantees, that pollution won't get into derma deep layers and won't damage its structure.
Besides, barrier cream of hydrophobic action simplifies process of obstinate stains removal.
Sphere of application: paint and varnish works, repair and finishing of apartments, motor service, drawing, work with glue, hair-dye, cosmetic wax and nail varnish.
The water repellency is translated as "fear, phobia of water". Means of hydrophobic action, as well as hydrophilic products, form the air-retaining liner on the surface of a body allowing our envelope to breathe.
Hydrophobic in contrast to hydrophilous means repeal moisture. That`s why they effectively protect skin during the contact with soluble substances: acids, salts, alkalis, washing and desinfectants, fertilizers, cement and water.
Sphere of application: mopping and dishwashing, wet cleaning, cooking, work with plants and fertilizers in the garden.
Both hydrophobic and hydrophilous creams should be carefully spread on the skin paying special attention to area between fingers and around nails.
Barrier cream: what else you should know
Barrier cream can have minor useful properties at the expense of additive ingredients in the contents and that can be its doubtless advantage of other means.
For example, barrier can soften the skin at the expense of A, C, E vitamins, can moisturize and abirritate due to aloe vera extract.
Moreover, one of DPPE manufactures - the Skincare company - produces Riza® - protective creams containing a special antioxidatic complex preventing premature ageing.
Pay attention to silicons, parabens, chemical dyes and odorants more precisely to their absence in the product.
These components may cause an allergy or skin irritation. Besides, parabens and silicons are capable to clog up pores and to hasten emergence of comedos.
And at the end if you have an opportunity to test a new unknown cream in the shop, use it! So you`ll know for sure what tube contents you buy.
A healthy lifestyle and an eco-style are the main global trends of the recent five years. People try to choose healthy products in clothing, cosmetics and nutrition. 100% cotton shirts, silicones-free shampoo, natural yogurt, baby cream instead of "adult" cream: it is better, because baby goods meet more strict requirements.
On the one hand, there is a point: products for children are made according to special rules. But on the other hand, is baby protective cream effective for an adult? The Research Center of Skincare conducted a study and busted the myths about the benefits of baby cream for adult skin.
Baby cream does not contain dyes, parabens, silicones and perfumes.
Yes and no. There is no uniform recipe of baby cream. Various active components and auxiliary agents are used as ingredients, including parabens, perfumes, dyes, and preservatives.
The classical formula of a baby cream based on lanolin and glycerin was invented about 50 years ago. The ingredients also include fats and oils, herbal extracts, zinc, panthenol, beeswax. Potassium sorbate, which is extracted from the berries of mountain ash, is used as a preservative. Some manufacturers add dyes and perfumes to achieve the desired color and fragrance.
Baby cream is the perfect protection against wind, frost and sun.
Baby cream does have protective properties: it creates a barrier, but it acts differently on adult skin and baby skin.
Baby skin has rapid cell regeneration, increased gas exchange and lacks a protective barrier from the environment. Baby cream creates a "dense" protective film, which is achieved by glycerol and lanolin added to the formula in large amounts.
Adult skin does not regenerate that intensively leading to a thick layer of keratinized cells forming on the surface. Baby cream creates an "impenetrable shell", which hinders exchange and respiratory processes in the epidermis. There are special protective products for adults, i.e. DPPE or professional skin protection means.
Baby cream is the best nutrient.
Yes, but only for baby skin. Is does not give enough nourishment to adult skin, since it lacks the necessary agents. Professional dermatological means are more efficient in this respect.
Baby cream regulates the acidic and alkaline balance of the skin.
Baby skin and adult skin have different levels of acidity. The pH of a baby reaches 8–9, while the average pH of an adult is about 5.5. Baby creams are designed to lower the pH level, which is already lower in adult skin. Consequently, the use of baby creams on adult skin will lead to an unnecessary decrease of the pH level.
The skin has better respiration with baby cream.
Baby cream forms a thick film on adult skin, which can lead to edema and dehydration.
Creating a layer of dead skin cells substantially mixed with fat, baby cream blocks oxygen and causes swelling, as the cells are literally choked and try to take all available reserves from the deep layers of the dermis, which leads to dehydration.
Baby cream is suitable for any type of skin.
People with oily skin must not use baby cosmetics to avoid the clogging of the pores and the accumulation of sebum.
Baby cream can also damage dry skin. It forms a film that blocks the access of moisture, drying the skin even more.
Conclusion: baby cream is a useful and necessary product when it comes to the skin of a child. Older people need to choose dermatological products which are appropriate to their age category, taking into account the needs and the type of their skin.
If you are trying to avoid cosmetics, choose professional dermatological personal protective equipment (DPPE). DPPE is a separate category of products intended to provide additional skin care.
From 4th to 6th of September a widespread PIR conference which was consecrated to business processes and human resources management took place. During the event excursions into the largest international companies were organized. One of these enterprises was Skincare company.
The acquaintance began with a “green office” project. Participants learnt how modern design can be comfort, beautiful and eco-stylish simultaneously and moreover how to make up an idea of separate collection of waste and energy saving.
After that guests were informed about the cooperation between Moscow Skincare offices and subsidiaries in China, Brazil and Netherlands. Skincare specialists also demonstrated an online-game – Terraformation – through which all the business processes pass. R&D department became the next place for the excursion. In the marketing department where all brand ideas are born guests were taken into the marketing secrets.
At the end of the excursion coffee-break was held during which in informal conversation the guests could ask all the interested questions to the Skincare founder– Dmitry Erohin.
In September 2016, Skincare launched a new motivational project called "Terraforming" (terraforming is deliberately modifying the climate of the planet to make it habitable by Earth-like life) for its personnel. Since then, all work processes have passed through this interface, which looks like an online game like "Star Trek" and "War Z".
Below you can read more about the way Terraforming has changed the world of an ordinary employee and what else it will do.
Gamification in business - what is it?
The system works as follows: incorporating game elements in business, household and any other processes: from brainstorming to situations with a complex scenario and adding interfaces: applications for smartphones, computer programs, virtual goods and awards, for instance.
The game does not just diversify the routine of work, but also works as an inspiration and encouragement. An employee feels more significance of his/her position, more engagement. The employee is no longer a simple manager, he/she is a player, creator and inventor, and work is no longer the only mission. Besides, the system helps to escape from real-world problems: sometimes it is indispensable, especially in the office.
Gamification in the form of an online game for personnel appeared in 2010s. In the US, the program was successfully implemented by IT-consulting company Bluewolf. In Russia, one of the first companies daring to introduce the project on a large-scale was Skincare (note: Skincare is an international manufacturer and supplier of personal protective equipment, including dermatological solutions).
Stage of Suspended Animation
Skincare had the idea for the Terraforming at PIR EXPO 2015. The exhibition showed several cases devoted to computer gamification. Among them there was an electronic project to motivate sales managers. Skincare decided to take it further and create an online game for all employees.
Difficulty No. 1. Where to find a contractor? The companies which are ready to proceed with such idea (develop and launch the complete version of the online game) and still be able to satisfy all the demands of the gamificator can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Let alone doing that in our country where browser-based business games are practically non-existent. It took Skincare about three months to find the right contractor. The creation of the online game was started by GameTrek.*
Difficulty No. 2. How do we explain to an employee that work is from now on a game (and vice versa)? It proved to be difficult to incorporate the game into the company. Everyone understood the essence of the game by definition. No one knew the nuances, which was exactly what frightened people. Most were skeptical of the game: the personnel believed that the new system was aimed at reducing wages and intensifying control. However, Terraforming has shown quite opposite results.*
The theme for the game was chosen quickly: the game had to be about space (everyone in the company likes everything that has to do with space, it is a source of inspiration). It also should be about a post-apocalyptic world. Skincare should play the role of a defender and resuscitator, which will correlate with the key company activities in the best way possible. That was the origin of Terraforming, the browser game, with the elements of space strategy. At first, it was tested by "volunteers", a special working team created for the gamification. In September 2016, the project was officially implemented in the overall working environment: the profiles of all colleagues were registered, information on departments, positions and responsibilities was uploaded. The state of suspended animation (as it is called in the game) was over; the personnel woke up from a long sleep and entered the game. The flight has begun.
Plot description. The action takes place in a far-distant future. The earth survived a major ecological catastrophe, which destroyed all things alive. But the planet can be saved: there is still a chance to restore the conditions suitable for the terrestrial flora and fauna. That requires a lot of work, which is what the crew of the Skincare spacecraft is doing. Every employee plays himself/herself: they perform individual tasks that will help save the planet in the game and solve business problems at the company scale in real life.*
Players in Terraforming are divided into three categories:
Crew – managers and specialists of the departments;
Command staff – heads of departments and divisions;
Overhead personnel – the so-called "Command Bridge" where the ship's commander and his deputies are located.
KPI. These tasks constitute the basic functions of an employee. As a rule, they cannot be more than five. They make up 60% of the bonus.
Orders. There can be an infinite number of them. 4–5 orders add the remaining 40% of the bonus. The more assignments an employee performs, the higher rating he or she is given by Terraforming.
Project tasks. Skincare has working teams which are business clubs designed to implement additional and temporary projects. Such tasks are evaluated outside KPIs and orders in Terraforming.
Each member of the crew has their own role and their own assignments given by the leadership and other employees. The staff receives resources for each performed assignment: crystals, gold, silver, wood, oil, metal and stone. Crystals are withdrawn from the game as a cash bonus. The rest goes to the "rescue" of the planet, i.e. they are used as the game currency in Terraforming. One can spend them in the prize shop to improve their character (that is, themselves). For example, one can get a subscription to a fitness club, personnel development training or foreign language training, a movie ticket and even the right to be late for work (Skincare monitors the punctuality of its employees very closely).
One can also buy towers and mark their territory (after all, each department, needs a piece of land as a team). The wider the boundaries of their dominions, the more additional crystals the team gets. The crystals can be later taken from the game as cash.
The working tasks in Terraforming are divided into several categories:
Assignments in the game are given for 30–31 days, the resources for their execution accrue at the beginning of the next month. Who fulfills more tasks during that period receives more resources and a higher rating. The table is updated monthly. The rating leaders receive additional incentives (for example, a double bonus).
Why would a manufacturer of professional personal protection means need to launch online game processes in business? This question was answered by Skincare HR-department.
The first goal is motivation. Now everyone in the company can earn more if there is a wish. Anyone who makes efforts in the previous month, are sure to make it into the top of the rating and receive an increased bonus. Besides, Terraforming is a cultural and entertainment incentive, and employees can now combine business and pleasure.
The second goal is to understand the significance of the employees. The management needed to evaluate the functions of each person in the company. Terraforming did a great job. The monthly work sheet of each employee is now displayed in the system. It can be seen by the bosses as well as ordinary managers. This helps assess the significance of the tasks performed by one specialist and correlate its workload with the work schedule of the others. Simply put, gamification shows who has the most workload in the company and who should receive more orders.
The third goal is inducing the individual development of the employees. Skincare values personal development, not simply the growth of an employee within the company. The motto here is: the more hobbies employees have outside the company, the wider the range of their competence, hence the higher are the chances of the employees proposing and implementing something new and useful. Therefore the game shop has a subscription for sports activities, foreign language courses and other "developing" products. You can get them in exchange for resources.
The six months of complete “Terraforming” have let us do a lot in all three areas. The interest of the personnel is evident: their engagement in the work and the life of the company has increased. The workload of each team member has become clear. And those who are really interested in the result of their work, who perform assignments in excess of their plan and functions receive additional cash and incentive prizes.
Skincare reveals little about the future of Terraforming. The first and most important need of the company is to transfer the whole working life into the game space. Terraforming may be developed to be even closer to an online strategy, i.e. new elements and tools will be added: perhaps, resources and rewards, or possibly quests and tactical battles. The plan of the first updates has already been designed, and they are in the process of implementation.
Link Direct Company became an official Skincare trade representative in Kuwait. Link Direct will not only represent goods of the partner, but also develop DPPE consumption culture on the legislative level.
Kuwait is supposed to be the largest oil exporter, that`s why economic mainspring are oil refineries and energy companies. Also there construction material and fertilizer manufacturing, pearl fishery and food industry are well-developed. On the manufacturing area employees obligatorily use PPE: work clothes and safety footwear. But DPPE are not used because in the country there is no legislation in this sphere.
CEO of Link Direct told us about DPPE market and Kuwait industry in details.
- Have you ever been to Russia? Please, share your impressions about our country.
- I`ve come to Russia many times, besides I studied here. I graduated from Belgorod State University of Shuhov. This university holds authority inside and also outside your country.
- Russia is famous for its engineer and space elaborations, and also it`s considered to be an advanced country in technical and applied sciences.
- When I began studying in Belgorod, I was constantly thinking about creation knowledge interchange between our countries. And I decided to work in this direction.
- Russian leading economic sectors are heavy engineering, metallurgy, oil extraction and electrical energy industry. What about Kuwait ? What industrial segment predominates there?
- Economy and industry of our countries are so much alike. We are world leaders by oil and gas products extraction and export. Russian Gazprom and Lukoil are familiar to Kuwait. Now there is a range of joint projects between Kuwait companies and Gazprom and Lukoil.
- Apart from the oil and gas sector trade is well-developed in Kuwait. For historical reasons since olden times we`ve been carrying goods using our geographical position.
- In Russia there is an order of the Ministry of Health (No. 1122n) on the basis of which the enterprises provide employees with dermatological protection means. Speak, please, about the DPPE legislation in Kuwait and about labor protection in general.
- Russia is one of the few countries in which standards distribution of personal protection equipment to personnel are enacted. In Kuwait there is no such practice. But we think about its necessity and do our best to fulfill it.
- I`ve chosen Skincare company as business partner intentionally. At first Skincare is a leading international PPE supplier, who Gazprom and Lukoil trust. For the second Skincare takes part in legislation development in occupational health and safety sphere. Skincare`s experience will help us to improve this sphere in Kuwait.
- What DPPE peculiarities are there in Kuwait enterprises?
- In Kuwait DPEE are represented in general by cleansing means. Barrier creams aren`t almost used, because consumption culture of these means is poorly developed. Now we`re speaking about barrier means as necessary preventive care of occupational diseases.
- The quantity of skin diseases including cancers has increased in the manufactures.
- Survey which we conducted among medical staff showed that the companies apply only medical measures for diseases elimination. Preventive measures are poorly developed; we work at this sphere development.
- Here occupational health and safety engineers show great enthusiasm. Now we together conduct works on introduction of practice of barrier creams using on the enterprises.
- What about employees` opinion we received positive feedbacks about efficiency of products. Some employees reported that they were ready to buy Skincare products even if their companies wouldn`t provide them.
- Also we have analyzed the analogs which are represented on the market and in such a way we made sure that other brands significantly yelded to Skincare in quality.
- Employees often use harmful cleansing methods, for example, solvents. These means provoke and aggravate skin irritation. We presented samples of Skincare products to one of our employees and ask him to test them. A month later we received a feedback. He was overjoyed at three-phase DPPE system and expressed his willingness to buy cleansing, barrier and regeneration means on his own as soon as they hit the market. That`s why it`s necessary to develop B2C market.
- Does Skincare Company impress you?
- I`m sure, that behind each success there is not only professional stuff and technical capabilities. I visited Skincare`s manufacture and saw that scrupulousness which they treat all details.
- Not so long ago an EcoCert representative visited manufacturing area, who speak well of Skincare enterprise. It`s expected that soon manufacturing area will receive EcoCert certificate. So as Skincare production will be top-class certified.
- In what spheres do women work in Kuwait?
- Kuwait women choose so different professions from an engineer to a teacher. The majority of course prefer calm office work.
By the way in Skincare when I visited their office, they unveiled a new product line for skin protection against harmful office factors. As far as I can see this line will blow up the market and for sure Kuwait women will like it.
In Moscow Film School a creative workshop “Shorts – a beginning of the way” took place. Russian moviemaker Vladimir Grammatikov told participants about doing a movie beginning from finding investments and up to the film release. Lecture was haeld in discussion form: Russian cinema guru answered questions of the audience and told about his experience.
By request of the audience Vladimir told about the project “Happiness is…”, which was created by Disney under support of Nokia, Lego, Skincare and Tele2 companies. Event participants learnt more about the first “Happy project” and details which were left offscreen, about launching its follow-up.
The script of the project`s first part was based on stories sent by winners of a professional scenarist contest. And that`s that moment when each author could suggest a new idea or defend the initial story.
“Happiness is a very difficult topic, it can be interpreted in a different way. We`re waiting bright positive emotions from stories sent and striving to the success from their authors”, - Grammatikov underlined.
We should remind that Disney and its partners launched the second project “Happiness is…” on the 8th of June during the Kinotavr cinema festival.

Besides CEO of Shanghai Mujing Trading specially founded a department for promoting Skincare`s PPE to the Chinese market.
Now we`ll create volumes trying to make skin care a daily ritual for millions of Chinese employees.
This May Skincare company has become a member of the European association of mining industry which is working at promoting occupational security and health in its segment.
First results of our collaborative work at building a prevention culture on OSH in APEC economies have appeared already by June. International Social Security Association (ISSA) published their annual newsletter where there was some information about our fruitful cooperation.
During Russian Safety Week Skincare representatives made a report about PPE innovations? and also about corporate social responsibility, particularly charity and ecological issues, having well-developed in the company.
Surely we should freshen up your memory that ISSA is a leading international organization which unites government agencies, organizations and authorities of social responsibility.

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.
