Product reformulation: prioritizing people, the planet, and profit

How digital reformulation helps optimize products to increase sustainability.

How does digital reformulation boost product sustainability?

Companies that develop formula-based products, whether consumer-packaged goods, energy and materials, life sciences, or even tire manufacturers, seek new ways to meet the demand for clean, healthy, more sustainable products. Digital solutions that improve physical, real-world experiences help companies optimize and speed up product reformulation for sustainability.

Companies with agile reformulation management are uniquely positioned to quickly deliver people- and earth-friendly products that improve their brands and profits. For example, applying a digital reformulation approach offers a simpler and quicker way to improve formula-based products such as personal care products, over-the-counter medicines, tires, and motor oil.

Big companies have a big responsibility to make the world a better place to live. The impact of sustainability may have been a mere reformulation for each product, but for responsible CPG companies, it is a huge transformation. The digitalization of product development is key to making CPG industries sustainable.

Consumers increasingly seek healthier ingredients and clean labels in the products they use. Consumer product companies’ annual sustainability reports highlight strategies to improve products to lessen the impact on the planet. Process- and science-based companies using digital reformulation to optimize the way they improve these products.

Digital Product Reformulation

Harmonizing products, nature, and life, Dassault Systèmes offers the only end-to-end product reformulation solution, supporting formulation design, development, management, and testing on a single platform. The BIOVIA brand solution for reformulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform leverages digitalization, integration and automation, virtualization, integrated modeling and simulation, and artificial intelligence to support sustainability objectives, faster.

The digital reformulation solution allows companies to manage formulations across the product lifecycle. Users benefit from real-time access to all existing formulations. Using molecular modeling and simulation to predict product characteristics, it’s possible to pinpoint the impact of specific ingredients in order to design more sustainable formulas

Digitalizing the reformulation process in product development speeds up laboratory processes. Products can be developed and tested against specifications more quickly, including stability testing.
