Sekisui Specialty Chemicals, a global leader in polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), officially launched five new cosmetic grade polymers under the Selvol Ultalux brand. Ultalux FP, Ultalux FA and Ultalux FF are equivalent to the most popular Selvol PVOH grades.
According to the company, they are ideal additions to personal care formulations due to their wide spectrum of performance attributes, including excellent adhesion, range of viscosities and good tensile properties.
Independent testing has demonstrated that Ultalux FA is non-irritating and delivers active ingredients several layers into the skin.
Sekisui is particularly excited about Ultalux SC and Ultalux AD. These two grades include highly functional copolymers that provide increased hydration and increased film adhesion respectively, the company said.
The safety and quality of all the Selvol Ultalux personal care grades have been confirmed by third party laboratory testing and are now available for purchase and sampling.
