Brenntag’s European Cosmetics Formulation and Development laboratory have focused on creating ideas with novel ingredients such as Cosmos / ECOCERT surfactants, renewable carbon sources, naturals and vegetable derivatives, as well as preservative boosters and natural choices for preservation.
Francois Bouton, European Business Development Manager - Cosmetics, says: “The challenge in formulating green products is to increase the level of “green” ingredients in a formulation without compromising performance. Multi-functional ingredients such as Cosmos approved Dissolvine® GL, a sustainable plant-derived chelating agent from Akzo Nobel, allows a dual performance improvement, firstly on surfactants action and secondly on preservatives system. Iscaguard® SAP, which belongs to Brenntag’s green preservative solution, in particular provides performance improvement, in this case reducing carbon footprint, lowering the ecotoxicological profile of a customer formulation and guarantying the safety for consumer use while making economic sense at the same time.”
The Brenntag Laboratory has recently developed a number of new formulations for a range of products, including:
Micellar water is a modern day essential for a skin care maintenance product range, especially for removal of make-up and cleansing skin. This formulation contains Colonial Chemical’s Poly Suga®Mulse D9, which is 100% bio-based, registered on the NPA and is ECOCERT approved. The product has been formulated with other key ingredients to enhance efficacy from other key suppliers such as Corbion and Akzo Nobel.
Ultra Mild Colour Protection Shampoo
A non-irritating, sulphate-and EO-free shampoo that contains Mirasil® ADME-P from Bluestar Silicones. Other innovative ingredients from Akzo Nobel, Colonial Chemical,Inc. and Seven Scent fragrances are used in the formulation..
Moisturising Body Lotion
A PEG-free, ultra moisturising and skin rejuvenating lotion based on key ingredients from Dow, Colonial Chemical, Inc. and Seven Scent fragrances.
These formulations further expand Brenntag’s extensive formulations library and product database, building on the expertise our Pharma and Cosmetics team is keen to share with their customers. Brenntag’s European Cosmetics Laboratory, based in Amiens (France) are continuously working on the development of innovative formulations, assessment of specialty raw materials, troubleshooting and search for cosmetics performance solutions for our customers across Europe.
