Natural thickener and cold emulsifier launched

Dr.Straetmans launched two new products at in-cosmetics in Paris.

dermofeel viscolid: the blue pill for oil-based products

This new raw material is an excellent natural thickener for oils and can convert every liquid oil into a solid product. dermofeel viscolid works with mineral oils and vegetable oils that can be mixed with essential oils too. The solidifying properties of this 100% natural raw material make it possible to increase the viscosity of W/O emulsions without increasing the body or sensorial profile of the formulation. However, the main application may be the production of Spa-products. The viscosity of massage products can easily be increased with the help of dermofeel viscolid but on the skin the jellified oil recovers its original liquid and oily skin feel. Thus upon melting on the skin it does not change the skin feel of the massage-oil.

dermofeel easymuls: cool emulsification for hot countries
The new Oil-in-Water cold-emulsifier dermofeel easymuls is 100% natural. The economic ingredient is easy to use and produces light emulsions, especially suitable for lotions, milks and sprayable formulations. A further advantage is the applicability in cold production, which makes it also interesting for wet-wipe production and many other concepts. The cold production can be applied to all kinds of emulsions and is especially useful, when heat-sensitive actives are used too. The light, low viscous textures of the finished products are ideal for the sensorial trend especially for summer season and warmer regions in general. This makes it ideal for products targeting warmer countries like in southern Europe, South Asia or Latin-America.
