Clariant Rolls Out New Ingredients

December 3, 2013

Clariant recently debuted personal care product ranges that are part of the company’s new Secret Code of Beauty concept.

With the launch of Nipaguard Zero preservative blends, Clariant is responding to market demand for a reliable and effective alternative to parabens at a comparable price. They are based on Clariant’s novel and patented 100% renewable Velsan SC synergistic booster. Containing no halogens or formaldehydes, four new Nipaguard Zero blends have been developed for use in rinse-off and leave-on applications, wet wipes and difficult-to-preserve formulations. An Ecocert-approved option is also available. Extensive testing to meet the highest standards ensures that formulators can have complete confidence in the effectiveness of all four blends to deliver the same levels of performance as traditional preservatives.

Plantasens natural ingredients surprise the senses naturally, according to the company. Recently acquired from CRM International, this innovative range includes plant-based actives, unique emulsifiers, waxes and a broad selection of emollients that range from vegetable oils and natural butters to alternatives to silicones, petroleum and lanolin. As the majority of Plantasens products are Ecocert-approved, they satisfy the requirements for the development of natural cosmetic products.

Adding a touch of luxury to all skin care formulations through its soft, velvety feel, Aristoflex Velvet is the latest addition to Clariant’s versatile Aristoflex polymer range. Suitable for a broad range of applications, skin types and age groups, this product can be added at any formulation step and is characterized by excellent solvent compatibility. It is ideal for use in clear formulations and comes pre-neutralized and ready to use.
