Stepan Offers CP3

November 15, 2005

Stepan Company, Northfield, IL, offers CP3, an optimized phosphate-based emulsifying system. Executives said CP3 is cost-effective, has a low melting point and is easy to formulate with.
CP3 is naturally substantive to the skin, displays shear thinning behavior and has a phospholipid-like character. CP-3 based emulsions can be excellent delivery vehicles for different kinds of treatment products due to different degrees of neutralization, such as sunscreens or low pH formulations. Stepan executives said the ingredient is appropriate for such applications as skin exfoliating emulsions with AHA or BHA; anti-acne creams with salicylic acid; self-tanning products containing dihydroxyacetone and skin fading emulsions.
