Neolone™ preservatives are safe, effective, globally approved biocides with excellent stability in a wide range of pH and temperatures. These broad-spectrum preservatives inhibit an extensive variety of bacteria at low active ingredient levels. They extend the shelf life of personal care products such as lotions, styling gels, sunscreens, and wipes. Neolone™ is easy to dose, highly water soluble, and has an exceptional environmental profile. It is compatible with numerous raw materials, including surfactants and emulsifiers, zinc pyrithione, and avobenzone. It has exhibited superior performance in leave-on and rinse off products. Neolone is available in a variety of blends for personal care and household applications.
These cationic polymers provide the dual benefits of conditioning and thickening. The cationic charge makes the product substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. Many of the products in the N-Hance cationic guar product line have a high molecular weight, water-soluble backbone and are effective viscosifiers in aqueous solutions and surfactant-based systems.
This combination of phenoxyethanol and an emollient base provides optimized protection against microbial growth from bacteria and yeast while giving the finished product exceptional feel.
Orchid Complex™ OS is a naturally-derived light emollient ideal for products such as creams, lotions, body butters and bath products that are intended to convey a natural and mild appeal.
This unusually stable, moderately viscous emulsion exhibits a high acid and salt tolerance. It forms strong, light-stable films with high water resistance. It appears as a fluid, milky-white emulsion.
Used as an emulsifier in many food and personal care application, it can also be used to stabilize formulations, increase thickness or add lubricating properties.
This all-natural, clean-tasting sweetener extracted from the monk fruit offers a clean label and healthier product appeal.
Ashland polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) polymers are used in hair styling applications for their ability to form clear, hard, glossy films. In addition, PVP also stabilizes emulsions, dispersions and suspensions. PVP is soluble in water and many organic solvents. They are available in a range of viscosities and supplied as either powders or aqueous solutions.
These rheology modifiers are especially designed for use in cold-mix processes. They are easy to use, shear-tolerant, shear-thinning and effective at low use levels. The performance characteristics and benefits of the polymers allow formulators to develop a range of efficacious and appealing personal care products.
These silicones can enhance the performance of hair, skin, antiperspirant/deodorant, and color cosmetic formulations.
