LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 9, 2013

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE: APD)
will launch its new Dermohydrine™ cellular active at next week's In-Cosmetics
2013 in Paris. Dermohydrine cellular active provides personal care formulators
with an effective, high-performing moisturizing solution that can meet the
natural ingredient demands of today's consumers.

Dermohydrine cellular active is the newest addition to Air Products' high
performing ROVI cosmetic active ingredient portfolio. These ingredients
utilize advanced and multi-faced delivery technologies to address defined and
consumer-desired performance attributes. Product families within this
portfolio include Cellular Actives™, ROVISOME™, CERASOME™, and Nanosome™
cosmetic active ingredients.

Dermohydrine cellular active provides natural extracts to enhance the moisture
retention levels of the skin. In vivo panel tests demonstrated excellent
improvement in the hydration level of the skin. This improvement was generally
as good as that provided by traditional, expensive high-performing
moisturizers like hyaluronic acid. In addition, Dermohydrine cellular active
is a natural ingredient.

"Skin moisturization is an important part of consumers' daily skincare
routines, and our new, scientifically-based solution can help formulators
deliver a cost-effective and natural solution to their customers," said
Solomon Lemma, global business manager for Personal Care at Air Products.

Air Products acquired ROVI cosmetic active ingredients through its purchase of
ROVI Cosmetics in February 2012, adding technically advanced product lines to
complement Air Products' existing polymer and delivery technology portfolio.
Well-known products under the ROVI portfolio include AquaPront™ cellular
active for reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, Epiprotectyl® UV cellular
active for hair sun protection, Herbapurifine™ cellular active for benefits
including sebum control, ProContour™ cellular active for skin tone, Unitone™
cellular active for skin brightening, and Vivendin™ cellular active for
general skin appearance benefits.
