Novel Deodorant Formulation Techniques


DuPont Tate & Lyle (stand D100) highlights zemea propanediol.

Glycols act as solvents, humectants, emollients and sensorial modifiers in a range of personal care products.  Formulators in search of a natural alternative to petroleum-based glycols have a high-performing, skin-friendly option in the form of Zemea propanediol.  DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products will present “Novel Deodorant Formulation Techniques using Zemea Propanediol” on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, at 4:00pm in Theater 1.  

“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.      For more information on Zemea visit:
