May 2, 2014

Ideal for skin care, sun care and color cosmetics.

Create eye-catching clear sticks and balms to sprayable gels and emulsions with Croda’s OleoCraft polymers. The supplier recently launched its OleoCraft range, a group of oil structuring polymers that create impressive films on the skin, lip and eyelash, delivering water and wear resistance benefits in color cosmetic and sun care applications.

The OleoCraft polymer range consists of low color and low odor high performance thermoplastic solids, proven to form crystal clear, thermo-reversible gels. The products cover a range of high to low polarity oils providing compatibility to a wide range of cosmetic ingredients. The OleoCraft polymers can be used to create novel formats.

Originally acquired though Croda’s purchase of the polyamide technology from global Florida-based Specialty Chemicals business, Arizona Chemical, in May 2013 and formally under the trade name Sylvaclear, the production of these products has been transferred to Croda’s Mevisa manufacturing plant in Spain and honed to offer a range of four exceptional products; OleoCraft LP-20; OleoCraft MP-30; OleoCraft HP-31 and OleoCraft MP-32.

In other news, Croda also recently launched a new conditioning agent, CrodazoquatMCC (MultiCultural Conditioning), designed to address the expanding market need for multicultural conditioning and damage repair for a diverse range of hair types.  The company noted that the broad regulatory acceptance of Crodazoquat MCC will enable globally-acceptable formulations.
