BASF introduces new solutions for the personal care market

Readily biodegradable, wax-based opacifier dispersion and exfoliating beads for personal care products

BASF Care Creations will showcase two new products that answer the needs of today’s environmentally conscious consumers. “We are constantly seeking innovative and more sustainable solutions for the personal care industry. Consumer trends and needs clearly show us the way. With our new ingredients Euperlan OP White and Cegesoft Peel we can help our customers to develop winning products supporting both the consumers’ well-being and eco-conscience,” said Dirk Mampe, Vice President Business Management Personal Care Solutions Europe.

Euperlan OP White is a wax-based, readily biodegradable and cold processable opacifier dispersion with a superior white appearance for surfactant formulations. The product meets today’s demand for ecological friendly ingredients and its unique properties make it particularly suitable for eco-label conforming skin and hair cleansing formulations. BASF is the leading supplier of cold processable wax dispersions for personal care that provide optical effects in rinse off products. Euperlan OP White complements BASF’s current portfolio of pearlizing wax dispersions and can be used as an alternative to synthetic polymeric opacifiers.

Cegesoft Peel consists of round wax beads that provide a gentle and mild exfoliation. Mainly derived from natural and renewable resources, Cegesoft Peel is a readily biodegradable and environmentally friendly alternative to sharp-edged abrasives and non-degradable beads (often referred to as microplastic beads).

Hyalurosmooth – counteracting harmful effects of daily stress

Daily stresses are known to translate into cutaneous stress, with cortisol as its main mediator. Hyalurosmooth represses the damaging impact of cortisol on the skin, restoring collagen type I and hyaluronic acid that are affected. Bringing the positive effects of a mindful lifestyle – rested from the inside – Hyalurosmooth helps the skin recover its hydration and radiance. Extracted from the Indian Cassia angustifolia, Hyalurosmooth is IECIC-listed.

As part of the Inspire presentation program, Axel Boettcher from BTC Europe will be presenting new data on Hyalurosmooth.
