Feel how light a natural film former for sunscreen can be with antaron™ soja glyceride

Consumers seek more natural, eco-friendly personal care products but aren’t willing to sacrifice performance or sensory attributes.  Sun care and color cosmetic manufacturers have struggled to improve the naturality of their products, due to the high number of synthetic ingredients required to deliver the product efficacy and aesthetics that consumers demand.  Moreover, sunscreen aesthetic properties are challenging in any sunscreen formulation, whether organic or especially inorganic.

Antaron™ Soja glyceride is a nature-derived, biodegradable film former that provides excellent water-resistance and SPF boosting for sun care and color cosmetic formulations, along with long-lasting and color-transfer resistance properties.  New data shows that Antaron™ Soja also has powerful pigment dispersion capabilities resulting in light, non-greasy formulations.  It’s difficult to formulate high performance sunscreens with a light skin feel, which makes the pigment dispersion properties of Antaron™ Soja invaluable.  Antaron™ Soja offers a solution to sun care manufacturers, enabling them to improve the naturality and sustainability of their formulations while creating a variety of appealing textures and meeting their corporate sustainability goals.

Easy-to-use Antaron™ Soja glyceride is cold processible, enables clear formulations and has a liquid format for fast incorporation into formulations. In addition, the polymer has great aesthetics and improves the texture of formulations. Due to its ability to disperse pigments yet still form high integrity films on the skin, it leaves the skin with a soft after-feel after application. This will enable formulators to create appealing textures with the polymer.

 

Join this workshop to see how Antaron™ Soja can be used to create high performance sun care products with a delightfully light skin feel thanks to its remarkable film forming and dispersion properties.

I got 99 problems but a microplastic ain’t one

Microplastic pollution has become one of the biggest environmental concerns of modern times - most of the biggest cosmetic brands have stopped the use of microplastics from their formulations as a result. Whether it is to follow the changing regulations or to go even further to improve the sustainability profile of the product, the need for good, natural alternatives has become incredibly apparent over the last few years. Microplastics are very useful in cosmetics as they improve performance in a number of ways: sensory enhancing, payoff, mattifying, blurring and more.

The offer in plastic is wide, and the offer in alternative must be as multifaceted!

 

DAITO KASEI group meets this need by offering a large variety of NATURAL, COSMOS and VEGAN texturing powders for every need!

With different properties, different sizes and shapes, our powders can be used for all cosmetic applications.

We invite everyone to come and try our amazing formulas - 100% plastic free and silicone free!

Key Takeaways: Soft, blurring or mattifying powders! DAITO KASEI has a wide choice for every needs!

By removing Sargassum and turning it into useful products via environmentally friendly processes, Carbonwave can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Waxing lyrical: The versatility of waxes to create formulations with inspiring and indulgent textures

With zero-waste lifestyles opening doors to new solid and waterless formulations and formats with a luxury feel, there is an opportunity for skincare brands to create more glamorous and premium solid formats that give the same sensorial and functional qualities as traditional products.

In this workshop, Cornelius and Strahl & Pitsch will explore a range of different wax and oil combinations at different percentages, in both a ‘matrix’ format and in finished products, to demonstrate how important it is to choose the right wax for your formulation.

Try for yourself how a wax can improve structure and stability, give a more elegant talcy feel, increase the richness of a formula, or give a pseudo-silicone effect, and how these waxes interact with different natural and synthetic oils.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from our wax expert, Roger McKenna from Strahl & Pitsch, who specialise in importing, refining, and custom blending waxes since 1904.
