Glycerin condensation as a means of producing effective and natural-based ingredients
While sustainability considerations are now influencing purchasing habits, most consumers are not willing to sacrifice product performance. Polyglycerol ester-based cosmetic ingredients meet both requirements: performance and eco-efficiency derived from mild, green chemistry.
Drawing on a tradition of quality and creativity, coupled with a deep sense of responsibility, we work with clients to see product development through to completion—from concept to realization and documentation. The result: our clients can make verifiable claims—and appeal to consumers’ personal care needs as well as their sense of environmental responsibility.
The market development toward sustainable products with improved biodegradability is driven both by consumer expectations and regulatory requirements. Raw materials injurious to the environment are under increasing pressure, and the demand for more environmentally sound substances is high. Aspects like stability, flexibility or ease of formulation (for the formulator) as well as improved skin feel and appearance and easy application (for the consumer) also have a direct impact on product performance. In this dawning era for greener products that combine eco-friendliness with high performance, innovative polyglycerol ester solutions tick all the boxes.
Allowing maximum flexibility in the consumer application, polyglycerol esters are viable alternatives to PEG as surface-active substances. By covering a broad range of hydrophilicities and molecular weights, and by allowing modification with hydrophobic groups of different size and structure, they satisfy a plethora of application criteria.
Because of their excellent ecoprofile, polyglycerol esters from Evonik are the ideal candidates when it comes to combining environmental credentials with high-performance parameters. These green products are capable of meeting current and future requirements of both consumers and legislation.
