Croda Presents New Ingredients For Personal Care

June 7, 2006

Croda launched a number of new ingredients: Super Sterol Liquid, Crodasperse, Lustreplex and Cromage Passiflora.
Described as an exceptional emollient that displays a high affinity for the skin, Super Sterol Liquid is capable of imitating and augmenting many of the functions carried out by the skin’s natural lipids. It imparts effective skin conditioning, repair, protection and moisturizing benefits, according to Croda.
Crodasperse is a new dispersing agent developed for inorganic UV filters and color pigments. It claims to optimize the dispersal of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to achieve maximum UV protection, minimal skin whitening and enhanced skin feel. It can also be used to create color cosmetics with high pigment loadings using low shear mixing.
Lustreplex is a patented quaternary conditioning agent specially designed to deliver visible results from all shampoo systems, including clear products. The products promises to maintain the hair’s natural luster, often lost during shampooing, and to effectively condition without dulling or build-up.
Cromage Passiflora 30 is an exfoliant obtained from the seeds of the passion fruit that grow in the Amazon. Cromage Passiflora removes dead cells from the skin’s surface, helps to prevent uneven tanning when used prior to self-tanning products and stimulates the circulation to encourage new cell generation.
