Caschem Inc., Bayonne, NJ, introduced Stantiv OMA-1, a substantivity-enhancing product designed to make sunscreens and pigmented products more resistant to water and to mechanical removal. The ingredient can also be used for lipstick and lip treatment products, Caschem executives said.
Stantiv OMA-1 is an economical, easy-to-use liquid with outstanding efficacy, low viscosity, light color, bland taste and minimal odor.
The product is idealy suited for cold-mixed systems and allows formulators to develop products that will meet the OTC Sunscreen Monograph’s “very water-resistant” claim with use levels as low as 1.5%.
