Elevance Debuts Renewable Personal Care

January 1, 2014

Elevance Renewable Sciences, Inc., a high-growth specialty chemicals company, has announced the commercial availability of its first personal care product lines, Elevance Smooth, a line of plant-based, multifunctional polymers, and Elevance Soft, a line of plant-based emollients, for use in a wide range of personal care applications, including skin, hair and cosmetic products.

Elevance Smooth CS-110 and Elevance Soft CG-100 are the first ingredients to be introduced in those lines, and are 100% renewable, plant-based materials. The compatibility and performance of the Elevance personal care ingredients allow formulations to be free from PEG, paraben, petrolatum and silicone, according to the company.

“Elevance innovations are expanding sustainable and renewable product offerings, enabling personal care customers to provide unique products and performance in skin, hair and cosmetic applications to meet changing market trends and needs and improve business results,” said Andy Corr, senior vice president, consumer and industrial ingredients.

Elevance Smooth ingredients are polymers that can provide structurant, thickener and film-former functionality while enabling formulators to use a single ingredient in chassis across their personal care product portfolio—simplifying formulation, product lines and business/supply chain complexity, said the company. They are compatible with a broad number of other ingredients used in personal care applications, including both silicone and silicone-free systems.

Elevance Soft ingredients include a range of liquid and semi-solid emollients and provide an elegant sensory feel from a plant-based alternative to silicone-based and petrochemical-based emollients.
