A sustainable alternative for isohexadecane & fluid silicones at stand 35.

Neossance Hemisqualane is a non-polar C15 hydrocarbon from Centerchem and Aprinnova (stand 35). Sustainably sourced from sugarcane, Neossance Hemisqualane is said to be an ideal solution for consumer products at the nexus of high performance and social responsibility. It is an award winning ingredient that is produced with a low carbon footprint and with minimal waste and water consumption and offers no compromise in cost or performance. Studies have demonstrated equivalent performance to Isohexadecane in sun care, color, and cleansing applications and to fluid silicones in hair care conditioners and styling products.

It is said to be the ingredient of choice for dry-feel sun care applications due to its high spreadability and great sensorial profile. According to the manufacturer, there is no compromise in performance or cost.
