Evonik Showcases Latest Personal Care Ingredients

February 7, 2014

At the Society of Cosmetic Chemists’ Annual Meeting in New York in December, Evonik Corporation displayed three posters highlighting developments in ingredient chemistry for state-of-the-art leave-on, rinse-off and active formulations for personal care products. These include new PEG-free W/O emulsifiers and O/W emulsifiers, liquid and waxy lipophilic emollients, and emulsion stabilizers.

The “leave-on” session  focused on efficient emulsion stabilization and highlighted two new ingredients.

Abil EM 120, a new and unique PEG-free, silicone-based W/O emulsifier, is especially suitable for color foundations or other pigment containing emulsions like BB or CC creams. In these applications, Abil EM 120 can stabilize pigments effectively which leads to full color trueness. It can be used as well for white emulsion systems as serums, creams and lotions.

The other leave-on material, Tego PBS 6, is a PEG-free O/W emulsifier for challenging fluid emulsions. Based on renewable raw materials, the polyglycerol ester provides excellent stabilization for all types of O/W lotions and sprays, especially low-viscous ones. It is especially suitable for sun care formulations containing a high load of water-soluble UV filters or other challenging ingredients like insect repellents.

The “rinse-off” presentation focused on ethnic hair care and review market trends, hair characteristics, and performance goals for rinse-off formulations.

The “actives” presentation highlighted two recent introductions now available for skin-active formulations in the US—Tego Cistus, a standardized extract from the plant Cistus incanus to protect skin from environmental stresses, and Phytosphingosine SLC, a novel sphingolipid derivative that helps to reduce the appearance of chronological aging and photo-aged skin.
