Enhancing sensorial attributes of cosmetic formulations with emollients from renewable sources
Sensory attributes are a keen aspect for cosmetics, highly appreciated by customers. They are responsible for delivering a special experience during use.
One of the main challenges faced by formulators is achieving a superior sensory feel while improving the sustainable profile of the cosmetic.
Oxiteno’s OXISMOOTH® Line helps balance this equation. The multifunctional green emollients are made from 100% renewable carbon, and deliver unique benefits in a wide range of cosmetic formulations. The line comprises esters produced by the reaction of responsibly sourced palm oil with Isoamyl Alcohol obtained from the upcycling of fusel oil.
The line is COSMOS reference, certified by ECOCERT and comprises three esters that can be used for skin care, sun care and hair care formulations:
OXISMOOTH® CP – UV filter solubilizer with high spreadability, very dry touch and quick absorption
OXISMOOTH® CO – An efficient green alternative for silicone as skin and hair conditioning agent
OXISMOOTH® ST – Green emollient with high spreadability and low tack as mineral oil alternative
