Clariant is touting the soft feel of new Aristoflex Velvet for skin care formulations. This specially designed polymer takes moisturization and cleansing beyond pure functionality to create a luxurious, lasting experience that indulges the senses, said the company.
Aristoflex Velvet is an EO-free and preservative-free ingredient. Its innovative composition does not immediately break on skin when applied, but instead gently melts while applying to leave skin feeling evenly soft and moisturized, said the company. It is ideal for creams, lotions, balms, milks and serums; its broad usage spectrum from pH 3-8 makes it compatible with a wide range of preservatives. It has a high compatibility with organic solvents, allowing special formulations such as tonics, hand sanitizers and nail polish removers with a soft, velvety, non-drying skin feel. Aristoflex Velvet also provides excellent suspending properties in a variety of products enabling the stabilization of colorful beads, exfoliating scrubs, microcapsules, sparkling pearls, and shimmering particles, for example.
An important feature is Aristoflex Velvet’s high temperature stability in formulations. In addition, Aristoflex Velvet provides ease of formulation. It is pre-neutralized, ready-to-use and is easy to add at any formulation step, dispersing easily in both the oil or water phase.
Developed in line with Clariant’s new Secret Code of Beauty concept, Aristoflex Velvet has emerged from the unique combination of five codes focused on helping customers achieve new levels of success in personal care.
