Croda Rolls Out OleoCraft Polymers

June 2, 2014

Create eye-catching clear sticks and balms, as well as sprayable gels and emulsions with Croda’s OleoCraft polymers. OleoCraft is a range of oil-structuring polymers that create impressive films on the skin, lip and eyelash, delivering water and wear resistance benefits in color cosmetic and sun care applications.

The OleoCraft polymer range consists of low color and low odor high performance thermoplastic solids, which are proven to form crystal clear, thermo-reversible gels. The products cover a range of high to low polarity oils providing compatibility to a wide range of cosmetic ingredients. The OleoCraft polymers can be used to create novel formats, according to Croda.

Originally acquired though Croda’s purchase of the polyamide technology from global Florida-based Specialty Chemicals business, Arizona Chemical, in May 2013 and formally under the trade name Sylvaclear, the production of these products has been transferred to Croda’s Mevisa manufacturing plant in Spain and honed to offer a four-product range: OleoCraft LP-20, OleoCraft MP-30, OleoCraft HP-31 and OleoCraft MP-32.

Croda also recently launched a new conditioning agent, CrodazoquatMCC, which is designed to address the expanding market need for multicultural conditioning and damage repair for a diverse range of hair types. The company noted that the broad regulatory acceptance of Crodazoquat MCC will enable globally-acceptable formulations.

In the hair conditioner market, the Asian and Hispanic population growth is outpacing the overall expansion of the segment. Croda explains that consumers around the globe have a need to repair damage caused by coloring, chemical treatments and heatstyling, creating a market need for multicultural conditioning agents.

Using its technological expertise in creating conditioning ingredients, the company has developed Crodazoquat MCC specifically to offer conditioning benefits across a wide range of hair types that have heat and chemically-induced damage.

Crodazoquat MCC is vegetable-derived and has broad regulatory acceptance, including in China where it is IECIC and IECSC listed, to facilitate use in global applications.
