“Zemea propanediol offers cosmetic formulators an alternative to petroleum-based glycols that is natural, skin friendly, and boosts preservative efficacy when used with other common preservatives,” explained David Shaw, global marketing manager, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. “Benefits include high purity, lack of skin irritation or sensitization, improved humectancy, excellent sensory characteristics and a favorable environmental profile, making it ideal for deodorant applications.”
The presentation discusses how Zemea propanediol and a unique solubilizer help formulators overcome the challenges of clarity, aesthetics and durability when formulating a clear, natural deodorant stick. In addition, two roll-on antiperspirant formulations using Zemea propanediol will be presented to show formulators how to overcome the challenges of stability, aesthetics and rollerball issues.
