SymClariol is Multifunctional

August 6, 2008

Last summer, Symrise launched the cosmetic ingredient SymClariol, a multifunctional active ingredient from its successful range of 1,2-alkanediols. SymClariol (INCI: decylene glycol) is a moisturizing ingredient for topical preparations and also performs well as a hair conditioner.

According to the company, beyond that, it also has excellent broad-spectrum anti-microbial effects that have been found effective especially for anti-acne, anti-dandruff, deodorant and personal hygiene products. Symrise has now published new data that shows that SymClariol can do much more, especially in rinse-off formulations like shampoos and shower gels. In extensive tests, SymClariol was found to have a significant impact on functional properties of the formulation like foam and viscosity.

This means that the product can be used to reduce the concentration of surfactants commonly used in rinse-off formulations, and thus reduces irritation. More info: www.symrise.com
