Green Ingredients, Sun Care and Much More from Cognis

June 23, 2008

Cognis Care Chemicals and its active ingredients business Laboratoires Sérobiologiques (LS) has launched a number of products designed to appeal to today’s environmentally conscious consumers. According to the company, its natural-sourced personal care solutions enable manufacturers to develop high-performance end products that allow users to look and feel good, and be environmentally responsible at the same time.

Cognis presents Euperlan Green, the first “green,” ethylene oxide- and amine-free pearlizing wax dispersion. This novel, exceptionally mild and unique pearlizer is intended for use in hair and body cleansing formulations that fit the trend towards natural, sustainable beauty products.

Plantacare 1200 Gly, a “green” surfactant for oral care applications such as toothpaste, combines sustainability, mildness and improved taste.

Another Cognis product exhibited at the show was Rheocare TTA, a liquid acrylic emulsion polymer for surfactant-based cleansing formulations. It is specifically designed to enhance the appearance of cosmetic cleansing preparations.

According to the company, sun care products must feel pleasant on the skin and have good water resistance—properties that are delivered by the Cosmedia Gel CC texture agent. It improves the thermostability and water resistance of sun care emulsions, resulting in an even film on the skin.
