WILMINGTON, Del. (PRWEB) March 30, 2016
Glycols are key ingredients in many of today’s cosmetic and personal care products, in roles as varied as solvents, humectants, emollients and sensorial modifiers. Formulators in search of a natural alternative to petroleum-based glycols have a high-performing, skin-friendly option in the form of Zemea® propanediol. DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products will be presenting “Novel Deodorant Formulation Techniques using Zemea® Propanediol” at in-cosmetics Paris, Wednesday, April 13, 2016, at 4:00 p.m. in Theater 1.
“Zemea® propanediol offers cosmetic formulators an alternative to petroleum-based glycols that is natural, skin friendly, and boosts preservative efficacy when used with other common preservatives,” explained David Shaw, global marketing manager, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. “Benefits include high purity, lack of skin irritation or sensitization, improved humectancy, excellent sensory characteristics and a favorable environmental profile, making it ideal for deodorant applications.”
The presentation discusses how Zemea® propanediol and a unique solubilizer help formulators overcome the challenges of clarity, aesthetics and durability when formulating a clear, natural deodorant stick. In addition, two roll-on antiperspirant formulations using Zemea® propanediol will be presented to show formulators how to overcome the challenges of stability, aesthetics, and roller ball issues.
In conjunction with the presentation, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products will participate at the in-cosmetics Paris expo on April 12-14, 2016. They will be sharing more information about Zemea® propanediol at booth D100. For more information on Zemea® visit: zemea-performs.com.
