Through years of research, Innovacos has developed an expertise in polyglycerol technology. This knowhow led to a new generation of polyglycerol-based emulsifiers known as PolyAquol™.
The first member of the PolyAquol™ family, PolyAquol™-2W, is a patent pending O/W self-emulsifier. PolyAquol™-2W possesses a wide range of formulation compatibility while providing a unique skin feel to emulsions. On a more functional level, PolyAquol™-2W can generate highly organized liquid crystals important to provide stability to the emulsion and to ensure compatibility with the skin. Clinically, PolyAquol™-2W was shown to prevent and repair damage caused to the skin barrier function by UV exposure.
PolyAquol™-OS2 is the second member of the PolyAquol™ line. PolyAquol™-OS2 can generate W/O emulsions endowed with a very light texture and skin feel. Its molecular arrangement provides strong emulsifying properties without the need of co-emulsifiers and it can advantageously be used also for cold-processed emulsions. It is perfectly suited for sunscreen and makeup formulations containing powders and pigments.
Both, PolyAquol™-2W and PolyAquol™-OS2 emulsifiers are all naturally derived with Ecocert and Cosmos approvals.
