AccuScrub Line Has New Colors

Honeywell, the global marketer outside of the NAFTA region for Accutech LLC’s Accuscrub product line, recently introduced an expanded color palette of the Accuscrub line. Working closely with its partner Accutech LLC of Clinton, TN, Honeywell expanded the color palette of Accuscrub beads from the original six colors to 10. The Accuscrub line of exfoliating scrubs are said to be ideal for body washes and cleansers. The size, color and functionality of these scrubs will greatly enhance the visual impact of your personal care product. 

According to Honeywell, unlike many natural products, synthetically produced Accuscrub beads provide consistent quality and reliability. These polymers are inherently stable and won’t dissolve into a formulation. In addition, Accuscrub beads will not contribute to microbial growth due to their inert nature. Every colored exfoliant is produced using D&C or FD&C approved pigments. More info:

Symrise Launches Plant-Based Hair and Skin Conditioners

Symrise introduced active ingredients Hydromoist L and Hydromoist O. Both new agents are plant-based peptide solutions obtained via enzymatic hydrolysis of either lupine proteins (Hydromoist L) or oat proteins (Hydromoist O).

Because the ingredients act as film formers and as effective hair and skin conditioners, they can be a replacement for hydrolyzed proteins derived from wheat, milk, soy and other similar sources. Both compounds act as moisturizers that make skin and hair soft and supple. They are gluten-free and preserved without the use of paraben. They are especially suited for hair that has been stressed by dyes or bleaching. More info:
