New Ingredients at Lubrizol

April 10, 2014

Applications vary from hair care to skin care.

The Lubrizol Corporation introduces an innovative new solution for hair color applications. Chromapol 5 Polymer is a new technology offering five key benefits to deliver rheology and sensory innovation in hair color applications. According to the company, this unique polymer allows for cutting edge product offerings such as clear gels and glossy crèmes with very pleasant aesthetics.

Chromapol 5 delivers no drip rheology, is free from fatty alcohols and provides pleasing hair sensory, especially when combined with Merquat polymers.  Its cold processing technology has the potential to improve sustainability profiles including savings in energy, batch time and amount of ingredients required.

Lubrizol also launched Carbopol Silk 100 Polymer, a brand new polymer technology targeted for shampoo applications.  Carbopol Silk 100 delivers cost efficient salt synergistic rheology that provides powerful suspension even at low surfactant levels.  It also contributes to conditioning performance in applications combined with conditioning polymers and silicones.  

Carbopol Silk 100 enables amazing shampoo formulas that restore smoothness, softness and shine to challenging hair while providing ultimate care for hair and scalp, said the company.
 
Finally, the company also rolled out Carbopol Aqua SF-1 OS polymer, a new acrylates copolymer grade targeting pigmented formulations used in skin care, sun care and color cosmetic applications. It enables formulators to achieve excellent emulsion stability and desired aesthetic properties in challenging systems containing pigments and electrolytes at levels required to deliver efficacy, said Lubrizol. The resulting formulas offer the user better protection and even tone in sun care, skin perfecting and color cosmetic products. 
     
This unique polymer also is easy to use, enabling cold processing and post-addition to adjust final viscosity and stability during manufacturing, which offers the manufacturer the potential for an improved sustainability profile.
